The Broncos may very well cut Charles, and even if they don't, it seems apparent that CJ Anderson is their guy. With that being said, this is the all-time NFL yards-per carry leader that we are talking about so he shouldn't be ruled out for a potential RB1 season if everything falls into place.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.

We will need some extremely positive reports about Charles this training camp for me to move him too far up the rankings, but we know what he can do when healthy.With Eddie Lacy in the fold, Rawls' value takes a big hit. I like Lacy more than Rawls and will draft accordingly.

Charles, much like Peterson, is toast. Don't be surprised if he is cut in the preseason. Auction Value $3 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

Sadly, this may be the end for J.C. He hasn't really 'played' in a year-and-a-half, and when he did, he wasn't the same player. After attempting to return from his second torn ACL, Charles wound up having to get both of his knees cleaned out towards the end of last season. He's still not participating in OTA's, so it's very likely that Devontae Booker beats him out for the change-of-pace role behind C.J. Anderson. Even if he sticks, he'll likely max out at 8-10 touches per game. 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
Fantasy Six Pack
 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.
Kevin Wheeler

I'm hoping he bounces back, I'd love to be able to get him as my RB4/5.Without an O-line Rawls is a bust candidate and now they have Lacy signed so neither of them should have much value.
