Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Rawls has done little this year, but he did significantly out-snap Eddie Lacy in Week 5 (32-19). It seems that Pete Carroll wants Rawls to be the primary back, and will give him every opportunity to win the job. It's not a fantastic matchup against the Giants, particularly in light of the injuries to the Seattle offensive line. But New York can be attacked much more on the ground than through the air, and Rawls should see a healthy dose of carries. He's a desperation Flex play this week, though he's probably someone to own but avoid starting for right now, and hope he earns the job as the primary back going forward.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Murray is losing touches to RB Derrick Henry, but he still could have flex value in a favorable matchup.
