Rawls ran for four yards on his lone carry during Seattle's 24-10 win over Philadelphia.
Rawls saw just three offensive snaps on Sunday and his carry didn't come until Seattle was nursing a two-score lead late in the third quarter. Rawls was a revelation when be broke out onto the scene in 2015, but injuries derailed 2016 and he's been lost in the shuffle this year. He has just two out of nine games with more than 50 total yards and has yet to score this season. With Seattle seemingly turning to Mike Davis, keep Rawls off your roster.
Rawls only played one snap on offense in Sunday's 24-13 win over the 49ers, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Rawls would re-enter the running-back rotation with Mike Davis (groin) unavailable. Rawls avoided the inactive list, but he didn't have a meaningful role and could soon find himself back in street clothes with Davis having a shot to return Week 13 against the Eagles. Eddie Lacy and J.D. McKissic handled the backfield work in San Francisco.
After producing only 27 yards on 10 carries in a Week 10 win over the Cardinals, Rawls was a healthy inactive for Monday's 34-31 loss to the Falcons with Eddie Lacy (groin) returning from injury and the recently signed Mike Davis entering the team's backfield mix. While Lacy's workload was limited in his return to action, Davis acted as the team's lead back for a good portion of the contest, amassing 59 total yards before departing with a groin pull. With Carroll indicating that Davis was "unlikely" to suit up against the 49ers, Rawls will have an opportunity to see snaps, but it's expected that he'll rank behind Lacy and pass-catching back J.D. McKissic in the pecking order. Rawls is averaging a horrid 2.6 yards on 49 carries this season and seems a long way from rediscovering the strong form he showcased as a rookie in 2015.
Rawls (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Monday against the Falcons.
Over the last five games, Rawls received between 29 and 42 offensive snaps. The modest usage didn't translate to the box score, though, as he averaged 2.8 YPC on his 44 rushes and reeled in seven of 10 passes for 74 yards. With Rawls in street clothes, the Seahawks will turn to the trio of Eddie Lacy, J.D. McKissic and Mike Davis out of the backfield.
Rawls rushed 10 times for 27 yards and brought in both of his targets for 12 yards in Thursday's 22-16 win over the Cardinals.
Rawls' rushing yardage total led the Seahawks on the night, a testament to how unproductive the ground attack was. The 24-year-old tailback gained 23 of his 27 yards on a season-long scamper, compiling just four yards on nine other carries. Rawls isn't solely to blame, considering that no Seattle back has been able to find any consistent measure of success behind the offensive line. With C.J. Prosise suffering an in-game ankle injury Thursday and Eddie Lacy (groin) currently sidelined as well, Rawls could potentially draw the lead-back assignment once again in Week 11 versus the Falcons.
