Murray is still dealing with his ankle recovery and as we all know, the Vikings went out and drafted Cook. They are paying enough money to Murray, however, that you would expect him to have a role int he offense, and should Cook go down, he should quickly become a workhorse. 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.

Murray will need to beat out Dalvin Cook once he returns from his injury, and Cook has looked good this offseason. I expect Cook to win the majority of the touches.With Eddie Lacy in the fold, Rawls' value takes a big hit. I like Lacy more than Rawls and will draft accordingly.

Murray's 12 touchdowns in Oakland last season saved an otherwise pedestrian campaign. This season, Minnesota rookie Dalvin Cook will likely make Murray a reserve. Auction Value $6 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

Despite finishing as the No. 13 running back in 2016, Murray wasn't very good, hence the reason the Raiders let him walk to sign a 31-year-old retired running back. Going from the Raiders offensive line that's ranked top-three in the NFL to the Vikings offensive line that ranks among the five worst was already a problem, but then he had foot surgery, and the Vikings traded up to draft Dalvin Cook in the second round. It's likely that Murray has seen his final days of fantasy relevance. 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
NFL Mock
He was a touchdown machine, but he lacked the consistent touches to be an RB1. He's also a free agent so unless he goes somewhere with a great O-line I might be throwing him to the scrap heap. Without an O-line Rawls is a bust candidate and now they have Lacy signed so neither of them should have much value.
