Seahawks | No separation yet in Seattle backfield

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 17:16:08 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RBs Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls are expected to continue sharing the early-down workload for the foreseeable future, according to head coach Pete Carroll. "There's no reason to have any criteria for it right now because we like our guys, and really, equal status now is good for us. We'll see how they do," Carroll said.

Fantasy Tip: Neither back did anything to separate themselves in Week 6, as Rawls (eight carries, 20 yards) nor Lacy (nine carries, 19 yards) both finished with 10 touches. Lacy started the game and they alternated series early, although Rawls ended up playing more snaps 32-19. Rawls is clearly the more explosive running back of the two, although his aggressive running style makes him the more injury-prone player of the two as well. Both backs should continue to sit on fantasy benches until a clear leader emerges.

Seahawks | Seattle RBs do not do much

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 20:34:22 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls rushed eight times for a team-high 20 yards in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Rams, while RB Eddie Lacy carried nine times for 19 yards and RB J.D. McKissic had two totes for no gain.

Fantasy Tip: McKissic led the trio in yards from scrimmage due to his three grabs for 36 yards, but it wasn't a good performance for either. There are plenty of touches available with rookie Chris Carson exiting last week, but no one stepped up against what has been a pretty giving Rams defense. Seattle has two weeks to figure out its running back with a bye in Week 6.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy expected to start

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 07:13:35 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy is expected to serve as the starting running back against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy may be the starting running back but probably will share playing time with Thomas Rawls and J.D. McKissic. Lacy will be facing a Rams that has struggled at times against the run this season and could be a flex option for owners.

Seahawks | Thomas Rawls next in line to start?

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 10:41:31 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls was a healthy scratch in Week 4, but head coach Pete Carroll seemed to suggest he would get the nod over Eddie Lacy in the wake of Chris Carson's "significant" leg injury. "With Chris being banged up, we're so fortunate to have Thomas ready to jump back out there. We're just lucky that we have a guy like that who's ready to go and is healthy and all that," Carroll said.

Fantasy Tip: Rawls was a healthy scratch after Lacy received the same treatment last week, so nothing is for certain. Lacy did lead the team with 52 yards rushing in Week 4 and figures to remain in the mix even if Rawls does take back the starting job, which would be the expected outcome since he was considered the starter early in camp before Carson's emergence. Either way, it's a situation to avoid in most leagues.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy leads charge on SNF

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 21:24:48 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy rushed 11 times for a game-high 52 yards in Week 4 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy was leaned up heavily with C.J. Prosise and Thomas Rawls out, and then Chris Carson leaving the game in the fourth quarter. He could be a player to target as a short-term fantasy option with a favorable matchup in Week 5 against the Rams on the horizon.

Seahawks | Chris Carson pulling away from the pack

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 10:57:03 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson has played 117 snaps this season, compared to 17 for Thomas Rawls and seven for Eddie Lacy.

Fantasy Tip: C.J. Prosise was excluded in part because he essentially plays a different position as the main third-down back, but if there was any remaining doubt Carson has the early-down job to himself before, there shouldn't be any after Week 3. Carson saw 41 snaps to Rawls' one, while Lacy was active but did not play. Carson has entered the low-end RB2 discussion and should be a decent start in Week 4 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Seahawks | Eddie Lacy disappoints

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 20:37:37 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy had five carries for three yards in a 17-9 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy technically started, but Seattle went with a rotation in the backfield and Lacy was the least effective. He looked like the same ineffective back he has been the last couple of years. Feel free to hold on to him for a few more games, but be ready to cut him loose if the trend continues.

Seahawks | Thomas Rawls officially starting

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 14:52:11 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls is listed as the No. 1 running back on the Seahawks' depth chart. RB Eddie Lacy is listed as the backup, followed by RB C.J. Prosise.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy hasn't been terribly impressive in his first offseason with Seattle and did nothing to force the coaching staff to make him the starter. That being said, Rawls is no more than a flex consideration in Week 1.

Seahawks | Chris Carson runs with first team Friday

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 08:51:58 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson saw nine snaps with the first-team offense against the Minnesota Vikings on Friday, Aug. 18, as opposed to Eddie Lacy's 13. Carson ran six times for 27 yards and contributed a 17-yard reception on his only target.

Fantasy Tip: Carson likely saw more first-team work than expected because of injuries to Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise, but the undrafted free-agent has done nothing but impress since the start of camp. Given how sluggish Lacy looked again, there is a case to be made that Carson is now threatening the former Green Bay Packer's spot on the roster instead of Alex Collins'. Owners should monitor Carson in next week's dress rehearsal against the Kansas City Chiefs.
