There are going to be two new starting offensive lineman in front of Elliott, but that shouldn't stop you from taking him as a top-three running back. He's a virtual lock for 300-350 touches. 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.
Richard Savill

 With Lacy holding steady with his weight control, Rawls and to an almost equal extent Prosise hungrily wait in the wings. Seahawks not near as fantasy secure in the backfield as in seasons past.

I don't think Elliott will get the receptions he needs to pass Bell or Johnson, but his touchdown total has tremendous upside and could push him ahead of those two, especially in Non-PPR.With Eddie Lacy in the fold, Rawls' value takes a big hit. I like Lacy more than Rawls and will draft accordingly.
Corey Parson
RotoExperts
The reigning NFL rushing champ just needs to get to training camp with no foolish suspensions. Auction Value $50 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
Derek Lofland

Elliot had 1,631 yards rushing and 15 rushing touchdowns to go with 363 yards receiving and one receiving touchdown. Playing behind the best offensive line in the NFL, he should be the best back in fantasy in only his second NFL season.
