2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Filling the shoes of a legend is never easy, but that’s what second-year running back Thomas Rawls will attempt to do after Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch decided to call it a career this past off-season. Rawls was a relatively unknown commodity last season and presumably third in line to get carries in the Seattle backfield, but after a number of injuries to the backs ahead of him, Rawls got his opportunity. His 830 yards and four touchdowns don’t sound spectacular, but his production was solid and consistent enough to make him a very valuable waiver wire addition.

Now entering his second season, Rawls finds himself in a completely different situation as the projected workhorse in what has traditionally been a very run-heavy offense (3rd in rushing attempts last season). While he does have some competition for touches, it’d be hard to envision a scenario where Rawls doesn’t play the majority of the snaps for the Seahawks, presuming he is healthy, to start the season. Seattle will likely lean on their passing game more this season now that the Lynch era has come to an end, but there will still be plenty of carries to go around. Now it’s up to Rawls to prove that the explosion he showed in 2015 was not a fluke.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Thomas Rawls won't play in 3rd preseason game
Full participant in Tuesday's practice
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Aug 23, 7:30 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Another day, another really good practice for Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls on Tuesday. “He looks great,’’ said offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell after Rawls was again a full participant in Seattle’s practice. But while Bevell said Rawls is “doing everything we could possibly ask’’ Rawls will not play Thursday against Dallas in Seattle’s third preseason game. (Seattle Times)

FFToday's Take: While HC Pete Carroll stated that Rawls will not play Thursday night, he's expected to be ready for Week 1. It's unclear if Rawls will suit up for the Seahawks final preseason game. The concern for Rawls will be all the missed time during the off-season and getting his conditioning up to speed. It won't be a surprise if he gets off to a slow start in 2016.

Injury Rawls, Prosise progressing
Rawls takes part in team drills; Prosise, Jimmy Graham do not

Seattle Seahawks
Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls continues to do more at practice. This is the first time all summer he has participated in team drills. C.J. Prosise (hamstring) is practicing for the first time but has not participated in team drills. Jimmy Graham is out here but not participating in team drills. (Sheil Kapadia on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Rawls appears to be on the right track, but Christine Michael's emergence may keep him from living up to his fourth-round ADP. Prosise would seem to have the passing-down role in this offense locked up, but he'll need to take part in team drills at some point in order to guarantee it. Owners should treat anything Graham does this year as a bonus; the road back from a torn patellar tendon rarely comes without significant setbacks.

Injury Thomas Rawls off PUP list
Recovering from ankle surgery
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Aug 7, 4:00 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Thomas Rawls, who is set to be the Seahawks' primary running back this season, passed his physical and was removed from the physically unable to perform list by the team Sunday. Rawls was placed on PUP just before the start of training camp last month as he continued to finalize his recovery from the broken ankle he suffered in December. (

FFToday's Take: Rawls did not practice Sunday and they will likely be cautious with him during camp. Rawls suffered a broken ankle on December 13th but is expected to be ready for Week 1. Assuming Rawls has no setbacks once he gets on the practice field, his current ADP of RB13 (3.04) should begin to rise.

Injury No practice for Rawls, Graham
Seahawks believe RB, TE will be ready for Week 1
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jul 28, 5:10 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Seahawks GM John Schneider: Thomas Rawls (ankle), Jimmy Graham (patellar tendon) won't practice Saturday. Team will bring them along slowly and is still deciding whether they'll start camp on PUP. But both players are on track to be ready for Week 1, (Sheil Kapadia on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Despite the recent public optimism, this should not come as a surprise. We're still a few weeks away from needing to be overly concerned about either player, although Rawls' recovery is a bit concerning from the standpoint his ankle still isn't 100 percent more than seven months after his injury. Rawls is a high-end RB2 if healthy (with obvious risk at the moment) while Graham should be considered a TE2 given the seriousness of his injury.

Injury Rawls says he expects to be ready for camp
Recovering from ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Jul 10, 1:00 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls said on Sunday he expects to be ready for the start of training camp. “Rehab is going phenomenal,” he said. “Running, cutting, working hard and getting back out there. I’m looking forward to being out there the first week. Rehab has been going phenomenal this whole offseason. I don’t have a break because I have to work 10 times harder. I’m excited to come back and fill that void in the backfield.” (Seattle Times)

FFToday's Take: Head coach Pete Carrol stated last month that he wasn't sure when Rawls would return but was confident he'd be ready for Week 1. While the quotes from Rawls are encouraging, players are typically incredibly optimistic about their health to the media. Fantasy owners should monitor Rawls' status during camp as he could be inline for a heavy workload if fully healthy.
