Summary

The Seahawks expected Thomas Rawls to be ready for 2016 training camp after suffering a season-ending ankle injury during a promising rookie year. That optimism didn't translate to practice or playing time last preseason and when he finally took the field, an early-season fibula injury in Week 2 cost Rawls another 9 weeks. He never got going upon his return. A quick, agile, and physical runner when healthy and behind a competent offensive line, Rawls averaged less than four yards per carry last year and delivered just one 100-yard game against Carolina in Week 13. Rawls is not guaranteed a featured role in 2017, and even significant playing time could be a challenge, thanks to free agent Eddie Lacy and second-year talent C.J. Prosise. Rawls offers fantasy RB1 upside if the offensive line takes another step forward with new tackles, Lacy doesn't live up to his incentive-laden deal, and Prosise doesn't build a two-week tear in 2016 where he earned 234 yards from scrimmage. It means Rawls is best regarded as a fantasy reserve with a wide range of production possibilities--good and bad. Because fantasy owners will likely plant their flag with one of Rawls or Lacy as the lead back, the average draft position on one, if not both, options will have upside baked into the figure.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy to split carries? (Thu Jun 22, 09:37 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy and RB Thomas Rawls could split carries fairly equally this season, according to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times.

Seahawks | Equal share of carries between Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls? (Thu Jun 22, 07:49 PM) - Bob Condotta, from the Seattle Times, speculates that the Seattle Seahawks could give Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls a fairly equal share of the basedown carries in 2017. Health and productivity (plus he brings up the dreaded 'hot hand' approach) should be the primary factors in how carries are split between the two.

Our View: If Lacy is healthy and not overweight, we think he'll get the bulk of the carries. However, Rawls is a player who could see some snaps if Lacy falters. There is absolutely cause for concern with these players. And let's not forget C.J. Prosise could take a lot of third-down snaps.
