Thomas Rawls joins crowded Jets backfield

Former Seattle Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls signed a one-year deal with the New York Jets. Rawls will compete for carries with fellow free agent signee Isaiah Crowell, Bilal Powell, and Elijah McGuire in a crowded New York backfield.

Fantasy Impact

Rawls tailed off badly last season, averaging a paltry 2.7 yards-per-carry behind a terrible Seattle offensive line. Rawls burst onto the scene with a strong second half to his 2015 rookie campaign but has had little success since. Still just 24, there's time for Rawls to get his career back on track, but he'll have a hard time doing so with a mediocre Jets offense this season, where Rawls will further be hampered by competing for carries behind Crowell, Powell, McGuire, and any rookies the rebuilding Jets should select. Rawls is well off the fantasy radar.

Thomas Rawls now a free agent

Seahawks beat writer Gregg Bell is reporting that the Seahawks did not place a tender on Thomas Rawls, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Fantasy Impact

The Seahawks also chose not to tender Mike Davis, meaning they're looking to go an entirely different direction in 2018. This is the best thing that could've happened for Rawls from a fantasy perspective, as he'll likely bounce to a different team as the No. 2 on their depth chart, meaning he'd need one injury to get back into fantasy relevance. We haven't seen the same Rawls that we did before his ankle injury, though the Seahawks offensive line did him no favors. Once he lands somewhere, we'll do our best to let you know what his value is.
