Seahawks' Thomas Rawls: Anticipated to split carries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rawls is expected to receive a decent workload during the preseason, and should see a comparable amount of carries to Eddie Lacy (ankle) during the regular season, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Rawls is coming off an injury-plagued first two seasons in the league, as he's missed 10 of 32 possible games in his career thus far. Although Rawls dealt with leg and shoulder problems last year, he approaches training camp with a clean bill of health. That should allow him to see a fair chunk of exhibition action, but the Seahawks are also expected to be careful in order to preserve him for the regular season. At that point, Rawls and Lacy figure to share the bulk of Seattle's ball-carrying duties, unless one player gets the hot hand and garners an increased workload. With C.J. Prosise around as well, Rawls certainly faces competition for touches, but he'll be keen to capitalize on his opportunities now that he's healthy again.

Seahawks' Thomas Rawls: Faces increased competition from Lacy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rawls will have to compete for work in a backfield that includes C.J. Prosise (shoulder) and recent free-agent signing Eddie Lacy (ankle), The Seattle Times reports.

Rawls looks like the odd man out at first glance, as Lacy signed a one-year, $5.5 million contract with $3 million guaranteed, while Prosise offers an element of pass-catching and quickness that the other two running backs can't match. However, Prosise and Lacy were limited to just 11 combined games last season while battling injuries, with the latter also carrying major concerns regarding his weight. The addition of Lacy is undoubtedly discouraging for Rawls' 2017 prospects, but it's far from a death blow.

Seahawks' Thomas Rawls: Will Compete with Prosise for Touches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rawls will compete with C.J. Prosise for touches next season, coach Pete Carroll said Thursday, according to the Seattle Times.

The most important thing for both backs is to stay healthy, something neither has proven capable of. No matter who starts, the Seahawks will use both, if healthy, as a 1-2 punch in the backfield.

Seahawks' Thomas Rawls: Has 34 yards rushing in divisional-round loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rawls gained 34 yards on 11 rushes in Saturday's 36-20 divisional-round loss to the Falcons.

Like many of his teammates, Rawls started the game off hot, ripping off gains of nine and seven yards on his first two carries, and amassing 29 yards on six totes overall during the 12-play opening drive. However, he gained just five yards on his remaining five rushes, as the Seahawks were forced to essentially abandon the run after falling behind by double digits. Russell Wilson actually took over as the most productive runner on the team, gaining 49 yards overall. Rawls wraps up an injury-shortened sophomore campaign with just 349 yards and three touchdowns on the ground, along with a 3.2 yards per carry figure that paled in comparison to the 5.6 he managed in his standout rookie season.

Seahawks' Thomas Rawls: Explodes for 161 yards, TD in wild-card win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rawls rushed for 161 yards and a touchdown on 27 carries in Saturday's 26-6 wild-card victory over the Lions. He also secured one of two targets for one yard.

Head coach Pete Carroll had vowed to get Rawls involved early and often Saturday, and the run-heavy approach certainly paid handsome dividends. Both Rawls' overall rushing total and his first-half yardage set new franchise records, and his four-yard touchdown run with 8:49 remaining essentially sealed the victory by giving the Seahawks a 19-6 edge at the time. The second-year tailback looked healthier and more decisive than he had throughout an injury-marred regular season, and the Seattle offensive line also performed several notches above their typical level of play, blowing open sizable running lanes on multiple occasions. While Saturday's performance was considerably rewarding for those who rostered Rawls in DFS contests and playoff formats, Rawls now faces the task of producing similar results in what will be a raucous Georgia Dome during next Saturday's divisional round matchup against the Falcons.
