Thomas Rawls Fantasy Football News 2017

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls is inactive for tonight's game against the Falcons, apparently as a healthy scratch. Rawls didn't show up on the injury report at all this week, so RB Eddie Lacy's return from a groin injury appears to leave the team no use for Rawls. Lacy, of course, has topped 34 yards just once all season. The closest thing to an intriguing RB in Seattle right now is J.D. McKissic, who drew a season-high 9 touches in last Thursday's win at Arizona. We'll see if he can repeat that participation level and become fantasy relevant.

Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy is a healthy scratch for today's game against the 49ers. Evidently 4th on the depth chart, he's cuttable in shallower fantasy leagues. Seattle will roll with Chris Carson, Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise today.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll make his 2017 debut against the 49ers on Sunday. Rawls' return further crowds a backfield that also includes Chris Carson, C.J. Prosise and Eddie Lacy. Avoid the situation in Week 2 fantasy lineups if possible.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) will play against the 49ers this weekend. Rawls put in 3 full practices last week but was held out of Sunday's opener. He'll return to a backfield that certainly needs a spark after RBs Eddie Lacy, Chris Carson and C.J. Prosise totaled just 53 yards on 15 carries vs. the Packers. Rawls is worth stashing, but he'll be tough to trust in Week 2 fantasy lineups.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Packers. It sounds like Seattle is holding him out to get him back to 100%. We’re expecting a Week 2 debut for Rawls. His absence leaves the Seahawks’ backfield to Eddie Lacy, C.J. Prosise and Chris Carson.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) "may be held out" of today's opener against the Packers. He practiced all week, but it sounds like Seattle might play it safe here and make sure Rawls gets back to 100%. He shouldn't be in Week 1 fantasy lineups. RB Eddie Lacy will be easier to trust if Rawls is inactive.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll suggested on Friday that RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's opener against the Packers. "That will go all the way to gameday," Carroll said. It's surprising considering Rawls was listed as a full participant in all 3 practices this week. We're expecting him to be active, but we might not know his official status until 3 pm ET on Sunday.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers. He practiced in full all week, though, and is expected to play. That makes Seattle's backfield even fuzzier heading into Week 1, with Rawls, Eddie Lacy, C.J. Prosise and Chris Carson all potentially involved. It's a situation to avoid if possible.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice. HC Pete Carroll said earlier in the day that Rawls is recovering from a high-ankle sprain, but he's clearly on track to play against the Packers this weekend. With Rawls and C.J. Prosise available and joining Eddie Lacy and Chris Carson, the Seahawks backfield is best avoided in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll revealed on Wednesday that RB Thomas Rawls is dealing with a high-ankle sprain. He's been sidelined for about 3 weeks now and is questionable for Sunday's opener against the Packers. Rawls shouldn't be in your Week 1 fantasy plans, and it's possible he misses multiple games.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll suggested Monday that RB Thomas Rawls' Week 1 availability is in question, according to the team's official website. Rawls missed the final 3 preseason games with an ankle injury that Carroll deemed "minor" at the time. It now seems more significant. We'll track Rawls' status throughout the week, but he shouldn't be in your Week 1 fantasy plans. His absence would make RB Eddie Lacy a bit easier to trust in lineups.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll described his backfield as "pretty wide open" on Wednesday. “You start with those two guys [Thomas Rawls and Eddie Lacy], but then C.J. [Prosise] brings some stuff and Chris [Carson] is really exciting to see too and then [J.D.] McKissic’s lit us up the last couple days with all the versatility he brought and with the question of where he playing and all, so I’m fine with it.” Carroll said. “I am really comfortable and I have no problem with it. Also, I’m comfortable with a guy taking over. If a guy takes over and it’s obvious, I got no problem with that either." There's potential for any of these guys to "take over." Rawls, Lacy, Prosise and Carson are all worth drafting at the right price (i.e. cheaply). But none of them will be a reliable Week 1 fantasy play.
