With Eddie Lacy in the fold, Rawls' value takes a big hit. I like Lacy more than Rawls and will draft accordingly.Lewis appears to be the backup to backups right now in Patriot land. He has a ton of skill, but he's buried on the depth chart and his injury history is bleak.

Was running with the ones over Lacy during the preseason opener.

Rawls burst onto the scene in a big way at the end of 2015. However, like Icarus, he flew too close to the sun and plummeted to earth. Rawls' late 2015 injury affected him throughout 2016, and now here we are, ranking him at nimber 58 out of 60. There is real upside here, but it would have to come in the form of straight up outplaying Eddie Lacy, an Eddie Lacy Injury, or barring either of those, Eddie Lacy getting indigestion or an asthma attack or something..Don't watch this play. It's one of several of Dion Lewis' 2015 unbelievable highlights. You shouldn't watch it, because it will make you want to draft Lewis, and that is probably not a good idea, given the fact that he has not flashed that ankle-breaking agility since his 2015 injury, and with the rise of fellow scatback James White in 2016, there does not seem to be a path to any sort of regular touches for Lewis this year. It's a shame, what a beautiful play.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
The Seahawks added Lacy and they do have Prosise sniffing around for touches too, but the Seahawks appear committed to still get the ball in Rawls' hands too. With that being said, his ceiling is limited and he shouldn't be start-worthy many weeks because of the abysmal Seahawks' offensive line.

Rawls was a disappointment last season due to injuries and poor play. The addition of Lacy in Seattle makes it difficult for Rawls to have any real Fantasy value. Auction Value $4 Lewis will lose snaps to James White, Mike Gillislee and Rex Burkhead this year. Auction Value $2
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After averaging 5.6 yards per carry in his rookie season, Rawls just didn't look the same returning from his ankle surgery, averaging just 3.2 yards per carry. He's someone who continually works his way up my draft board, as he is reportedly looking more and more like his 2015-self. If that's the case, he could be one of the steals at the end of drafts.  
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Without an O-line Rawls is a bust candidate and now they have Lacy signed so neither of them should have much value.Lots of competition for touches, but if Lewis is healthy he'll have 3-4 boom games. He's dropping like a rock in FFPC drafts, I think I drafted him in the 23rd round.
