Week 11 Free Agent Focus

By DS Staff 10:11am EST 11/14/16

C.J. Prosise, RB, Seahawks

Blind-bid recommendation: 80-100%

Owned in less than one-third of ESPN leagues heading into this weekend, Prosise got the start at New England—despite Christine Michael being active and involved. The rookie proceeded to lead the offense in most categories.

Prosise took 17 of the 23 RB carries for 66 yards (an unspectacular but decent 3.9 per rush). He also caught a team-high 7 passes for a team-best 87 yards while trailing only Doug Baldwin by 1 target.

Thomas Rawls is due back any week now, which will further muddle the rushing picture. And a healthier Michael might still get more carries than he did Sunday night. But Prosise has impressed his team in recent weeks and looks like he’s becoming an important offensive piece. His receiving role – which included routes from WR spots against New England – will keep him prominent even if he falls behind Rawls for carries.

But there’s also the chance that Rawls doesn’t prove to be anything near the player he was last year, or that Seattle simply eases him back in hopes of having a fresh, full-power Rawls for the playoffs. Those scenarios could find Prosise working as the lead back the rest of the way.

Most of the potential outcomes here make Prosise worth heavy investment on your waiver wire this week, especially in an offense that seems to be getting healthy. Consider throwing the rest of your remaining budget at him in a PPR league where you need the RB help.
