Thomas Rawls' workload to increase?

ESPN's Brady Henderson thinks that Thomas Rawls, who only played 16 snaps in Week 2, will see an increased workload going forward. Henderson thinks Rawls was being eased back in from his high-ankle sprain that caused him to miss Week 1.

Fantasy Impact

The problem is that Rawls averaged 0.8 yards per carry on his five carries, including his seven yard long. On top of that, Chris Carson ran for 93 yards on 20 carries. Rawls might see more snaps, but he has an uphill battle ahead of him not only to take his job back from Carson, but battling Eddie Lacy for the opportunity to even play.

Thomas Rawls awful in win

Thomas Rawls ran for four yards on five carries and no receptions in the Seahawks' win over the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact

Eddie Lacy had his turn, now Rawls' has come and gone. Rawls, who was the talk of the town this week, couldn't put it together against San Francisco. Rawls had a carry for seven yards, but still managed to average 0.8 yards per carry on five carries. He will likely have to re-contend with Lacy for the second spot on the depth chart with Chris Carson earning a shot as the RB1.

Thomas Rawls expected for Week 2

Seattle Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll told that he expects Thomas Rawls to be "raring to go" for Week 2.

Fantasy Impact

Eddie Lacy had his shot, now it's Rawls' turn. While Rawls will still have to share carries with Chris Carson and Lacy to an extent, Rawls will likely see the most snaps against the 49ers. Depending on how he does, Rawls has a chance to secure Seattle's RB1 duties.

Thomas Rawls INACTIVE Week 1

ESPN's Field Yates is reporting Seattle Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls (ankle) is officially inactive for Week 1.

Fantasy Impact

Rawls, who is recovering from an ankle injury, is declared inactive for the season opener in Green Bay. In his expected absence, Eddie Lacy and Chris Carson will likely split the early down touches while C.J. Prosise handles the primary pass-catching work out of the backfield.

Thomas Rawls unlikely to play Week 1

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Seattle Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls (ankle) is not expected to play Week 1.

Fantasy Impact

Rawls is not yet at 100 percent health. He's been recovering from an ankle injury suffered last month and could be held out of the season opener in Green Bay in an attempt to get the presumed starter back to full health. Eddie Lacy, Chris Carson and C.J. Prosise will handle Seattle's RB duties, likely in a RBBC, if Rawls is ultimately ruled inactive. At least until there is greater clarity, Seattle's backfield is one to avoid in the early portion of the 2017 season.
