    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls should maintain a prominent role in the offense despite the addition of Eddie Lacy in free agency, according to ESPN's Sheil Kapadia.

    Huddle Up: The rationale being Seattle hopes to save Lacy for the fourth quarter in order to wear defenses down, leaving Rawls to share time with Lacy and passing-down weapon C.J. Prosise over the first 45 minutes of the game. The crowded backfield isn't good for Rawls' early-season prospects, but Lacy's recent struggles with injuries and weight could allow Rawls to be more of a factor in fantasy as the season progresses. To begin the season, however, he could struggle to be anything more than a RB5.

  • Posted: 3/27/2017 6:07am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls will be used as a complement to RB Eddie Lacy off the bench.

    Huddle Up: The demotion could be a blessing in disguise for Rawls, who has struggled with injuries the last two years. There's also no guarantee that Lacy will make the team and stay healthy. C.J. Prosise will also be a complementary back, but Rawls will have some upside as an RB3 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 3/2/2017 10:23am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RBs Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise will compete against each other for the starting running back job, as expected, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

    Huddle Up: The expectation among many pundits is that Rawls will technically be the starter with Prosise serving in the change-of-pace/passing role. If that scenario plays out in the offseason, Rawls is a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 option and would be better suited in standard leagues. Prosise's ideal draft range is in RB3 territory in PPR leagues.

  • Posted: 1/14/2017 5:12pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls had 11 carries for 34 yards in a 36-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Saturday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Rawls couldn't find running room early, and Seattle had to abandon the ground game after falling behind. He had some big games this year, but unless the Seahawks upgrade their offensive line in the offseason, Rawls will likely be a boom-or-bust RB2 from one game to the next in 2017.

  • Posted: 1/13/2017 2:05pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 13, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Rawls played very well in the Wild Card playoff game and should have a significant role on offense against the Falcons. Owners in all leagues should consider Rawls as a No. 1 running back.

  • Posted: 1/12/2017 5:35pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (non-injury) returned to practice Thursday, Jan. 12, and was a full participant.

    Huddle Up: Rawls piled up 161 rushing yards in the playoff opener, and a repeat performance could be on tap this weekend against an Atlanta defense allowing 4.5 yards per rush. Rawls is a great alternative to Ezekiel Elliott and Le'Veon Bell in DFS formats.

  • Posted: 1/11/2017 4:13pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 11.

    Huddle Up: Rawls rushed for 161 yards and one touchdown in the Wild Card playoff game and should receive plenty of work against the Atlanta Falcons. Owners in all fantasy leagues should consider a No. 1 running back this week.

  • Posted: 1/7/2017 8:31pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls finished with 27 carries for 161 yards and a touchdown in a 26-6 win over the Detroit Lions Saturday, Jan. 7, setting a franchise record for rushing yards in a playoff game.

    Huddle Up: After struggling down the stretch of the regular season, Rawls broke out in a big way. A matchup with a porous Atlanta defense is up next, and Rawls should be one of the better running back options available during the divisional round.

  • Posted: 1/7/2017 9:46am ET

    Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said he would like to see RB Thomas Rawls receive 20 touches during the Wild Card playoff game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Rawls was limited to 349 yards and three touchdowns during the regular season because of injuries but will be the primary running back for the Seahawks against the Lions. Owners can consider him a No. 2 running back in leagues because of his workload.

  • Posted: 12/30/2016 6:17pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 30, and is not listed on the Week 17 injury report.

    Huddle Up: Rawls has been quiet the last couple of games, but he is a high-upside RB2 in Week 17 against a San Francisco run defense that has been the worst in the NFL.

  • Posted: 12/29/2016 8:28pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

    Huddle Up: Rawls has struggled the last two games, but he is a high-end RB2 in Week 17 against San Francisco's abysmal run defense.

  • Posted: 12/28/2016 5:37pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.

    Huddle Up: Rawls is coming off a performance where he rushed for only eight yards on eight carries, but he should receive more work in Week 17. He should be considered a No. 2 running back in all leagues.

  • Posted: 12/26/2016 4:00pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (shoulder) will have an MRI Monday, Dec. 26, but he is expected to play in Week 17, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

    Huddle Up: Rawls should be the primary running back, but Alex Collins will likely also be sprinkled in. Rawls is a great start this week against a historically bad San Francisco 49ers defense. Lean on him if a fantasy championship is still in the works.

  • Posted: 12/26/2016 10:11am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (shoulder) has yet to have a MRI on his bruised shoulder, but head coach Pete Carroll told reporters Monday, Dec. 26, that he doesn't know if Rawls will be available in Week 17 against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Rawls has occasionally been allowed to flash his impressive running skills since returning from his early-season leg injury, but offensive line coach Tom Cable hasn't been able to work his usual magic with his charges and the results have led to Rawls and Russell Wilson getting punished. Carroll will likely choose to rest Rawls against the lowly 49ers and turn to rookie Alex Collins, who should make for a fine DFS play in such a favorable matchup.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 3:49pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury in the Week 16 game against the Arizona Cardinals and he is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: If Rawls cannot make it back it is likely to be Alex Collins carrying the team home down the stretch.

  • Posted: 12/15/2016 9:03pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls had 21 carries for 49 yards and two catches for five yards in a 24-3 win over the Los Angeles Rams Thursday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: Rawls struggled to find room against the stout front of the Rams. He draws another tough matchup in Week 16 against Arizona, but he should still manage RB2 numbers thanks to a heavy workload.

  • Posted: 12/5/2016 5:20am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls had 15 rushes for 106 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, Dec. 5, against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: The line would have been bigger if he weren't checked out for a concussion. It was an encouraging sight after Rawls was largely ineffective in four previous games. He returns to the low-end RB1 range Week 14 against the Green Bay Packers.

  • Posted: 12/4/2016 7:25pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (concussion) returned to the field in the fourth quarter of the Week 13 game against the Carolina Panthers after passing concussion testing.

    Huddle Up: Rawls is back in the fourth quarter and adding to his statistics which is music to the ears of his fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 12/4/2016 6:41pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (concussion) was taken to the locker room in the second quarter of the Week 13 game against the Carolina Panthers to be evaluated for concussion.

    Huddle Up: Rawls was running roughshod over the Panthers, already topping the 100-yard mark with two scores before departing. Fantasy owners hope his night is not over, but if it is they still did not get shortchanged.

  • Posted: 12/3/2016 5:19pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls will 'get the ball quite a bit' against the Carolina Panthers in Week 13, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

    Huddle Up: Rawls has gained 95 yards on 26 carries in two games since returning from a broken leg, and he should see a bulk of the snaps at running back in Week 13 with C.J. Prosise injured. He is a low-end RB2 candidate in Week 13.

  • Posted: 11/28/2016 5:55am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls rushed 12 times for 38 yards (3.2 yards per carry) Sunday, Nov. 27, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: He has played in four games and failed to reach the end zone in all of them. He has a tough matchup next week against the Carolina Panthers, who have been among the best against RBs the last five weeks, as an RB2.

  • Posted: 11/21/2016 9:06am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls is likely to receive the lion's share of the work in the backfield after C.J. Prosise was diagnosed with a scapula injury in Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles that is expected to sideline him up to eight weeks.

    Huddle Up: Rawls is looking like an early candidate to be a second-half savior for fantasy teams, as the Seahawks lost both Prosise and third-stringer Troymaine Pope (high-ankle sprain) in Week 11. With Alex Collins inactive, Seattle was forced to turn to backup quarterback Trevone Boykin to take a few snaps at running back late. Rawls should be a weekly candidate for at least 20 touches going forward and boasts league-winning potential as a possible RB1 with that kind of workload.

  • Posted: 11/20/2016 10:53pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) returned to action in Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles and he rushed 14 times for 57 yards. He also added three receptions for 31 yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: The Seahawks might have wanted to ease Rawls back into action, but an injury to C.J. Prosise thrust him into a more prominent role. If Prosise is forced to miss time then Rawls might be a solid RB2 in all fantasy leagues in Week 12 at Tampa Bay.

  • Posted: 11/18/2016 6:11pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) will not be eased back in when he returns in Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles, head coach Pete Carroll said Friday, Nov. 18.

    Huddle Up: It sounds like Rawls will see a heavy workload right away, putting him in RB2 territory against the Eagles.

  • Posted: 11/18/2016 2:44pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls is not on the Week 11 injury report and expected to return to the field for the first time since Week 2 against the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend.

    Huddle Up: Rawls' recovery has been trending in the right direction for a while and his Week 11 status was pretty much confirmed when Christine Michael was released, so this news shouldn't come as a surprise. C.J. Prosise enters this weekend as the back to own in this backfield, but Rawls is a superior inside runner and should become a RB2 in fantasy in short order if he can stay healthy.

  • Posted: 11/17/2016 8:10pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 17.

    Huddle Up: Rawls is expected back in Week 11, and he should split time in the backfield with C.J. Prosise against the Eagles. It is a bit risky to use him after such a long absence, but he has appeal as a flex play.

  • Posted: 11/17/2016 6:40am ET

    Contradicting previous reports, Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) will be eased back in during his Week 11 game.

    Huddle Up: A Seahawks beat writer reported that Rawls will play considerably, but Mort and Schefty are reporting otherwise. C.J. Prosise and Rawls are flex options against the Philadelphia Eagles this week.

  • Posted: 11/16/2016 8:27pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) is 'going to play considerably' in Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles assuming he has no setbacks in practice this week, head coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: If you've been waiting on Rawls to return, or scooped him up off the waiver wire recently, he could be a decent flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams. C.J. Prosise is likely to see a majority of the touches in the Seattle backfield after looking good Sunday in New England, but Christine Michael is gone which paves the way for Rawls.

  • Posted: 11/16/2016 5:55pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Rawls is expected to receive most of the carries in Week 11 after the team released Christine Michael. He rushed for only 25 yards in 19 carries before he suffered the injury. He will be a risky option for owners because of the time be missed but he can still be a No. 2 running back for owners.

  • Posted: 11/14/2016 10:04am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (fibula) is 'ready to go' and will practice to play in Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Despite rookie C.J. Prosise's workload (24 touches) Sunday night, some of the flaws one might expect from a receiver-turned-running back - such as goal-line running - were obvious. With Christine Michael (hamstring) ailing, it wouldn't be surprising if Rawls took over as the early-down back as soon as this week and bumped Prosise back into the passing-down role he was supposed to have at the start of the season. Rawls could be worth starting in fantasy as soon as Week 12 if he shows well this weekend.

  • Posted: 11/11/2016 6:17pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) looked 'really fast and confident' while going through practice this week and could return in Week 11, head coach Pete Carroll said Friday, Nov. 11.

    Huddle Up: Rawls may need a game or two to shake off rust, but he should be stashed in all formats. He could be a key contributor by the time the fantasy playoffs roll around.

  • Posted: 11/10/2016 8:37pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 10.

    Huddle Up: Rawls won't play in Week 10, but he should be stashed in all formats. He could end up leading the Seattle backfield down the stretch.

  • Posted: 11/9/2016 7:10pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) was able to practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Nov. 9.

    Huddle Up: Rawls is making his way back from a cracked fibula. The Seahawks struggled to run the ball against the Buffalo Bills in Week 9, and Rawls cannot return a moment too soon. Fantasy owners will want to see him officially return, knock off the rust and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks before trusting him again.

  • Posted: 11/8/2016 10:46am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) will not play in Week 10 against the New England Patriots, but head coach Pete Carroll suggested Rawls is in line to return in Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Carroll also suggested Russell Wilson might be back to his normal self as a runner in a couple weeks, which would be convenient timing for all parties involved since the running threat Wilson provides opens up the ground game. Christine Michael has slowed considerably since his hot start and saw fewer snaps than C.J. Prosise in Week 9, so the door is open for Rawls to take over lead-back duties. Rawls needs to be added in leagues in which he hasn't already been stashed.

  • Posted: 11/5/2016 5:46pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) could begin practicing next week and be ready to play in Week 11, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

    Huddle Up: Continue to stash Rawls if possible. He probably won't be the lead back immediately upon his return but could be a valuable contributor when the fantasy playoffs roll around.

  • Posted: 10/31/2016 5:33pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) was able to run at full speed Monday, Oct. 31, for the first time since suffering his injury. He has been ruled out for Week 9, and head coach Pete Carroll said they will be cautious with Rawls so they can avoid any setbacks.

    Huddle Up: Rawls has not played since Week 2 because of his fractured fibula and is at least a week away from returning. He probably will be eased back into the lineup when he is healthy. Owners should avoid him until he receives significant playing time.

  • Posted: 10/31/2016 11:14am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (fibula) has already been ruled out for Week 9 against the Buffalo Bills, according to head coach Pete Carroll, who stated he will wait until Rawls 'is fully healthy and ready to go' before activating him.

    Huddle Up: Owners who have been stashing Rawls for a while may have a lead back in a committee with Christine Michael when he returns, but it remains anyone's guess when that might be. Seattle's running game has been compromised in large part due to Russell Wilson's injuries and the Seahawks' remaining schedule is treacherous, so owners can be forgiven for moving on from Rawls if they need the roster space.

  • Posted: 10/24/2016 10:38am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) is expected to be ready to return in two weeks, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

    Huddle Up: It's unclear whether Carroll meant if Rawls will be ready to practice or play in that time, so this week should be telling in that regard. Christine Michael owners don't need to worry about anything quite yet, but he is coming off three straight performances in which he has averaged 3.6 yards per carry or worse. Carroll's comments ('There's a difference with Thomas Rawls out.') also suggest Rawls could be a factor when he is ready. As such, Rawls needs to be added wherever he might have been dropped.

  • Posted: 10/21/2016 7:40pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) did not practice Friday, Oct. 21, and has been ruled out for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Rawls is expected to be sidelined for a few more weeks, and Christine Michael should remain a must-start fantasy option in the meantime.

  • Posted: 10/17/2016 10:47am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) is still 'a couple weeks away from being cleared' as he continues to make his way back from a cracked fibula, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

    Huddle Up: Rawls will almost certainly serve as nothing more than a change-of-pace back to Christine Michael, who has thrived as the Seahawks' top back in Rawls' absence so far this season. It should be noted, however, offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said Rawls 'embodies who we want to be' on offense about a month ago, so an eventual committee situation cannot be ruled out. Still, while Rawls should be considered a hold, Michael has done enough to remain the starter and should be considered a RB1 for now.

  • Posted: 10/14/2016 6:52pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) did not practice Friday, Oct. 14, and has been ruled out for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: With Rawls still sidelined, Christine Michael should be a solid RB2 as the workhorse in the Seattle backfield.

  • Posted: 10/13/2016 8:08pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (fibula) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 13.

    Huddle Up: If Rawls is unable to suit up, Christine Michael should receive a bulk of the snaps and would be a solid RB2 in Week 6.

  • Posted: 9/30/2016 1:55pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) will miss his second consecutive game in Week 4 against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Rawls is likely out a month after he was diagnosed with a hairline fracture in his fibula last week, which makes it possible he could only miss two games since Seattle has a bye next week. However, that may be enough time for Christine Michael to apply a firm grasp on the lead-back role for the Seahawks. Michael should be treated as a high-end RB2 at worst for the time being, while Rawls needs to be treated as a fantasy reserve who may not get his starting job back.

  • Posted: 9/26/2016 10:18am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) is expected to miss a few weeks with a hairline fracture in his fibula. Rawls missed the team's Week 3 victory over the San Francisco 49ers and could be out for a month, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

    Huddle Up: Christine Michael erupted for 106 yards and two touchdowns on the ground Sunday. If Rawls is sidelined for a month as is being reported, Michael may very well have the feature-back role in Seattle locked up by the time he is able to return. With Russell Wilson also operating at far less than 100 percent, Michael may very well need to carry the offense for the foreseeable future. Consider him a low-end RB1 for now.

  • Posted: 9/25/2016 12:51pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (shin) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 3 game.

    Huddle Up: Christine Michael will receive most of the work at running back and should be an attractive flex option for owners.

  • Posted: 9/25/2016 9:12am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (shin) will be inactive for the team's Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Christine Michael will receive most of the work at running back and should see a significant amount of carries during the game. Michael has posted decent numbers so far this season and should be an attractive flex option for owners.

  • Posted: 9/23/2016 2:05pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (shin) has been listed as doubtful for Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: With third-down back C.J. Prosise listed as questionable and Russell Wilson still recovering from a high-ankle sprain, Week 3 is shaping up to be a potential breakout spot for Christine Michael. At this point, anything less than 20 touches and a high-end RB2 effort would be a disappointment for a running back who has done nothing but impress since the beginning of the summer.

  • Posted: 9/23/2016 12:14pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (shin) is 'uncertain' to play in the words of head coach Pete Carroll for Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers. On Wednesday, Sept. 21, Carroll described the injury as a strain in a muscle around Rawls? shin.

    Huddle Up: Carroll is expected to speak with the media later today, so perhaps he'll expand on Rawls' status then. For now, the second-year back should not be counted on to play this weekend. Christine Michael has thrived thus far and should be expected to carry nearly a full load in a plus-matchup. As a result, he should be a fine RB2 or even better flex option this week.

  • Posted: 9/22/2016 8:34pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (shin) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

    Huddle Up: Rawls is expected to be able to play in Week 3, but the injury should ensure Christine Michael continues to play a big role and has value as a flex option.

  • Posted: 9/21/2016 9:38pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) is 'on track to play' in the Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers, head coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Rawls was expected to carry the load in Week 2, but he hasn't proven he can make it through a full game and stay healthy. Look for a split with Christine Michael in Week 3, making both more RB3 options in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.
