Seattle's Crowded Backfield

Pyro's take: Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls ankle injury will hold him out of week 2 preseason action on Friday. It’s being called a minor injury and Eddie Lacy is now expected to be the starting tailback for the second preseason game.

Fantasy Goo: When it was first announced that Rawls would get the start I thought nothing of it, teams usually rest their banged-up players week 2 anyway. Week 3 is what we really care about, but if they’re resting Rawls this week that becomes somewhat questionable. We should probably consider this a full blown committee at this point, in which case you can read our “League Winners” article to see who I think is worthy of drafting in this backfield.

Vegas Vibes - Seahawks

Pyro's take: The Seahawks opened the week -12.5 and there are books that have moved to as much as -16. This game script calls for a lot of action on the dround game.

Fantasy Goo: The Rams and Seahawks have had surprisingly close matchups given their end of season records. Despite that you have to like what you see with Thomas Rawls and a lead. He is a must play this week. Wilson should be asked to do less through the air in this one.

Prosise Scapula Fracture

Pyro's take: Prosise should be out for an extended period of time. He may be back for the Seahawks playoff run.

Fantasy Goo: Go get Rawls, pick up Rawls, trade for Rawls. He is the only back in Seattle right now and expect him to get the workhorse carries we saw last year.

Seattle Back to the Ground - Kinda

Pyro's take: The C-Mike news has passed, so let's look at the situation. The Silver Fox Pete Carroll himself referred to their current back-field as what they wanted all along. You have a punishing between the tackles in Rawls, and an amazingly talented Prosise to snag passes out of the air and get into space.

Fantasy Goo: This line is not doing their backs any favors. Today is Rawls first game back and will likely see less snaps because of it. I have a lot of stock in Prosise in DFS, just too good of a price and will likely see the majority of work. But, I not only like him for today, I think he could really take the league by surprise and could win people championships in fantasy.

Rawls Getting Into the Action

Pyro's take: Thomas Rawls will play Sunday barring any injury setback. He is now participating fully in Seattle's practices.

Fantasy Goo: Temper expectations for both Rawls and Prosise this week. Vegas has Seattle by 6.5 so game script says Rawls, but expect him to be eased into snaps. Alex Collins could vulture both of their touches late.

The Awakening Got Put in Sleep Mode

Pyro's take: The Seahawks have released C-Mike yet again for "off the field issues".

Fantasy Goo: This implies that Thomas Rawls should be good-to-go this week, scoop him up in all formats and he could be a great value in DFS.

CMike Can't Be Ignored


Pyro's take: Per Ian Rapoport Thomas Rawls has a hairline fracture in his fibula and is expected to miss at least 4 weeks.

Fantasy goo: While this is certainly devastating to fantasy players that spent a high(ish) draft pick on Rawls, at least the crowded Seattle backfield has gained clarity for a time. Christine Michael has been extremely effective this season and is on pace for over 1200 yards and 11 touchdowns while averaging 5.2 yards per carry so far.

Rawls, Prosise Out Week 3


Pyro's take: Michael looks to shoulder the heavy load in Week 3.

Fantasy Goo: With both Prosise and Rawls out, CMike looks to continue his dominance despite horrific O-line play.

Running Back by Confusion

Christine Michael could be the Seahawks’ main man in the backfield, post-Marshawn Lynch, after all. Michael emerged as the focal point — and just about the only point — of the Seahawks’ running game.

Pyro's take: Christine Michael could be the Seahawks’ main man in the backfield, post-Marshawn Lynch, after all. Michael emerged as the focal point — and just about the only point — of the Seahawks’ running game. That’s because Thomas Rawls missed the final 2 ½ quarters with a leg injury.

Fantasy Goo: Seattle would love for Rawls to get on track but, this injury muddies the water yet again. Michael also once again out shined Thomas Rawls. Nobody should start Rawls until they see one solid week of at the very least 6o yards. Until then I hope you have someone else to throw in. Michael is not spectacular and the Seahawks have not been playing the way have the past few years. The Seahawks are a mess. Seattle appears to have lost their “edge”. If you have been expecting Thomas Rawls to lead your backfield I would start to panic if you are 0-2. There are a couple very minor waiver wire RBs you can go with in the meantime.

Thomas Rawls To Start Week Two

Seattle Seahawks

Pyro's take: Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll told the media that RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) will start in Week 2.

Fantasy Goo:Rawls will finally take over as the starting running back of the Seahawks in Week 2 against the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams' defense was gashed in the season opener by Carlos Hyde and Shaun Draughn and could have their hands full with Rawls. Rawls should be considered a mid-range RB2 in the contest who could break the 100-yard plateau and score in this week's solid matchup.

Thomas Rawls Still On Pace To Be Ready Week One

Thomas Rawls recovery

Pyro's take: Thomas Rawls recovery from a broken ankle, which ended his season last December, is going along as planned. On Wednesday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed that Rawls will be out there for the Seahawks' season opener against the Dolphins two Sundays from now.
"He continued to have a great week," Carroll said, "There's no question that he looks to be able to play in the opener."

Fantasy Goo: The big question is will there be some kind of split with Rawls and Christine Michael in the backfield. Michael seems to have turned the corner in his career and had a very good preseason leading Carroll to call the duo a "one-two punch" at one point in camp. Rawls hasn't played in the preseason but could in the team's final contest. Either way, he could be eased into things if he is active Week 1.

Seahawks Running Game Unclear

The injury issue that's been hurting the Seahawks since camp opened kept a number of players from even suiting up, including running back C.J. Prosise.

Pyro's take: The injury issue that's been hurting the Seahawks since camp opened kept a number of players from even suiting up, including running back C.J. Prosise.

Fantasy Goo: Along with C.J. Prosise you can add Thomas Rawls. Rawls is currently going in the 3rd round, Prosise the 10th round and Christine Michael in the 13th in 12 team standard mock drafts. Nobody likes to see another man licking his girlfriend’s titties. Christine may have a girls name but, he is not a girl so it would not be like some hot chick named Christine licking your girlfriend’s boobies. DARN!! Christine, the man, was left for dead until the Seattle Seahawks brought him back. In the first preseason game of this year while Rawls sat out, Christine Michael looked good with 7 rushes for 44 yards. Rumor has Pete Carroll willing to go with a 1 – 2 punch with Rawls and Michael in 2016. Rawls owners want none of that talk. I loved watching Rawls run last year as he runs as if he is possessed. Prosise who was drafted by Seattle in the 3rd round should see a nice number of passes his way as the PPR option of the bunch. Once Thomas Rawls gets back to 100% I believe he will look the same as last year. We will have to worry about his running style leading to injury though.

Thomas Rawls Not Expected To Play Preseason Games

Thomas Rawls

Pyro's take: Thomas Rawls will not be rushed back, according to the Seahawks. Despite being activated from the PUP list, it remains questionable when he'll play in preseason games, if he does at all. (Seattle Times)

Fantasy Goo: Rawls is one of the more intriguing players entering the 2016 season. He carries a lot of upside, as shown in 2015, but he's also coming off injury and the Seahawks made several additions to the backfield this offseason. All of this has him considered one of the higher-end RB2s available.

Thomas Rawls Is A Full Go For Seahawks Camp

The Seattle Seahawks

Pyro's take: The Seattle Seahawks expect RB Thomas Rawls to be ready for the start of training camp. The second-year back's 2015 season was cut short by a fractured ankle and ligament damage. Before the injury, Rawls totaled 830 yards as a rookie and led the NFL with 5.65 yards per carry. (ESPN.com)

Fantasy Goo: Rawls seems to be fully recovered from the injuries he sustained last season. Fantasy owners hope that Rawls picks up where he left off last season as he was a surprise breakout player. With the retirement of Marshawn Lynch he is in line to be the primary ball-carrier for the run-heavy Seahawks. Owners drafting elite WRs with their first and second round picks should target Rawls in round 3 as a midrange RB1 with positional top five potential if he remains healthy.

Marshawn Lynch confirms in interview he is done playing football

According to press release from Showtime, Marshawn Lynch confirms in interview he is done playing football.

Pyro's take: According to press release from Showtime, Marshawn Lynch confirms in interview he is done playing football.

Fantasy Goo: One of the better fantasy running backs in recent years has called it a career per a report from Twitter. Thomas Rawls is the exciting pick to replace him again this year. A broken ankle will need to heal and just as importantly we need to hear that he is looking great sometime before your draft. I loved watching Rawls last season as he runs with the bad intentions that Lynch ran with.

Thomas Rawls On Target To Be Ready Week One

Seahawks head coach

Pyro's take: Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll told the Seattle Times that Thomas Rawls (ankle) is making "good progress" in his recovery from an ankle injury suffered at the end of the 2015 regular season and remains "optimistic" that he will be available for Week 1.

Thomas Rawls is still sidelined by an ankle injury that he suffered during Week 14 of the 2015 regular season. The impending sophomore rusher is expected to be Seattle's starting running back and replace Marshawn Lynch as he retired during the offseason. The Seahawks selected C.J. Prosise in the 2016 NFL Draft and is expected to see early playing time, but Rawls will still be the teams workhorse at the position.

Thomas Rawls guarantees he will be ready for camp


Pyro's take: Thomas Rawls broke his ankle in December, but has stated he will be ready for camp. "I’m getting better. I’m walking on my own, I’m doing a lot of good things, and my recovery is coming very quickly."

The undrafted rookie gave the Seattle Seahawks running game a spark when he took over for the injured Marshawn Lynch last season. He will have some competition over the summer with Christine Michael, but he should be the one named the starter.

Rawls finished the season playing 13 games and rushed for 830-yards on 147 carries (5.6 ypc) with four touchdowns. PPR owners beware, he only caught nine passes

Thomas Rawls (broken ankle) doesn't need surgery, and the injury should have "no long-term ramifications."


Pyro's take: Brock Huard via Twitter "Best News I've heard today is Thomas Rawls doesn't need surgery. No plate, no screws, no long term ramifications"

This has gone from a "substantial" situation via Pete Carroll to no long-term ramifications. Either case he is a must hold in Dynasty and Keeper formats.

Thomas Rawls makes a nice start


Pyro's take: It's always risky to go overboard with a player who has only 10 games under his belt, but all signs point to running back Thomas Rawls being legit. His 5.98 YPC is tops in the NFL. What's most impressive is that Rawls is averaging 2.80 yards after contact, which also ranks first. Even when the blocking is not perfect, he can make plays. The Seahawks are learning Rawls can be a home run hitter, too. He's averaging one run of 20-plus yards every 16.8 attempts. Marshawn Lynch averaged one every 48.9 attempts since the start of the 2014 season. The Steelers have a good run defense, but look for Rawls to carry a heavy load and have success. He's a must-start and a nice option in daily fantasy as well. -- Sheil Kapadia

Thomas Rawls had two carries for 19 yards


Pyro's take: Thomas Rawls has performed well in limited duty but as long as Marshawn Lynch is healthy its going to be limited duty for Rawls.
