From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 16): Rawls was probably not carried through the bye in many leagues, but the Seahawks could install him as a clearer starter out of their bye, as he was playing ahead of Eddie Lacy in the preseason and training camp. The Seattle offense tends to get better as the year goes on, so Rawls situation could also improve.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 5 vs LAR (8 / 20 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)

Rawls shared the backfield with Eddie Lacy and rookie J.D. McKissic. He failed to take advantage of the wide open opportunity, however, and pretty much matched Lacy's 9-19 production with a 8-20 line of his own. Rawls looked capable as a receiver on a couple of short plays, and thus likely has a slight leg up on Lacy going forward. That said, it's easy to imagine another back coming into the picture. The "poor O-line" card can only be played for so long. After all, rookie Chris Carson was reasonably productive before his injury, with the same O-line.

2017 Week 3 vs TEN (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Rawls was listed as active but did not appear to get any offensive snaps, ceding the starting role entirely to Chris Carson.

2017 Week 2 vs SF (5 / 4 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

He's got nothin'. I'm not sure that can be put much more diplomatically. He ran like an Eddie Lacy clone, essentially, crashing into the line with glorious regularity, and not making it through. He gets the benefit of the doubt this week, since it's his first one coming back from an injury, but Carson was clearly the top back here, and if that holds for another week, we could easily be calling Rawls the backup.
