C.J. Prosise (ankle) is questionable for Week 7 against the Giants.
Prosise has practiced fully the last two days and is in no danger of missing Sunday's game in the Meadowlands. He'll resume his role as Seattle's primary back on passing downs after sitting out the last two games with a sprained ankle. Oct 20 - 2:41 PM

C.J. Prosise (ankle) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Prosise is ready to return after missing Weeks 4 and 5 before the Seahawks' bye. Prosise has been extremely injury prone through his first two seasons as an NFLer, but could carve out a big role relatively quickly if he can stay on the field this time. The Seahawks have gotten close to nothing from Thomas Rawls and Eddie Lacy. Prosise will start out catching passes and changing the pace on early downs.
Oct 19 - 5:55 PM

C.J. Prosise (ankle) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

It's his first practice since going down in Week 3. Coach Pete Carroll expects Prosise to play Sunday against the Giants. Prosise's return could reduce J.D. McKissic to a reserve role.
Oct 18 - 7:35 PM

Speaking Tuesday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed C.J. Prosise (ankle) is expected to return for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Prosise hasn't played since Week 3. He's badly needed to provide a change-of-pace element in the Seahawks' jumbled backfield. It's unclear if Prosise's return will glue J.D. McKissic to the sideline.
Oct 17 - 4:04 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expects C.J. Prosise (ankle) to return following the team's Week 6 bye.

J.D. McKissic has been fine as the Seahawks' third-down back in the injury-prone Prosise's absence, but we'd expect Prosise to reclaim his old job. It's a role that has not been profitable in fantasy leagues this season. We would also expect McKissic to remain involved in some capacity. Prosise probably isn't worth a roster spot in standard leagues.
Oct 10 - 3:43 PM

The Seahawks have ruled out C.J. Prosise (ankle) for Week 5.

This was expected after Prosise missed practice all week. J.D. McKissic will take over on pass downs, with Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls replacing Chris Carson. The early rule out is a concern for Prosise's Week 6 status.
Oct 7 - 5:11 PM

C.J. Prosise (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Week 5.

He'll miss his second straight game. With Prosise sidelined, J.D. McKissic should handle pass-down work. McKissic -- listed as a receiver in CBS leagues -- is on the FLEX radar.
Oct 6 - 4:34 PM

C.J. Prosise (ankle) remained sidelined Thursday.

The injury-prone second-year back is suddenly looking very unlikely for third-down duties this week. That means it will be J.D. McKissic mixing in while Thomas Rawls and Eddie Lacy duke it out on early downs.
Oct 5 - 7:18 PM

C.J. Prosise (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday.

It's not a good start after Prosise was held out last week. Coach Pete Carroll expects Prosise to return Sunday. J.D. McKissic would be on the FLEX radar if he sits.
Oct 4 - 7:37 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he expects C.J. Prosise (ankle) to return Week 5.

Carroll said he would be "shocked" if Prosise did not return. The coach is not always the most reliable source when it comes to injuries, but that wording means Prosise is very likely to play. It is a blow to the waiver wire hopes of J.D. McKissic.
Oct 2 - 12:59 PM

C.J. Prosise (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Week 4.

This was expected after NFL Network reported Prosise would miss at least this week. J.D. McKissic could fill Prosise's role as a pass-down complement to Chris Carson
Sep 29 - 4:12 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports C.J. Prosise will miss Week 4 against the Colts with an ankle injury.

Add it to the long list of injuries for Prosise during his short career. Per RapSheet, Prosise had "tests" done on his ankle earlier in the week. Chris Carson has No. 1 back duties on lock in Seattle and could add pass-game work to his growing load, since Thomas Rawls and Eddie Lacy are non-factors there. As massive home favorites, Carson is a locked-in high-end RB2 this week.
Sep 27 - 2:56 PM

C.J. Prosise caught 3-of-5 targets for 65 yards in the Seahawks' Week 3 loss to the Titans, adding four carries for nine yards.

Prosise was targeted on a pair of deep sideline routes, a la the Patriots, and converted one of them for a whopping 46-yard gain. Prosise was the only Seahawks back to notch a touch behind Chris Carson. With the Seahawks' line generating little in the way of push, Prosise is going to remain involved as an important pass catcher. The Colts are a tasty Week 4 matchup.
Sep 24 - 8:04 PM

C.J. Prosise hauled in 3-of-6 targets for 22 yards in the Seahawks' Week 2 win over the 49ers.

He did not register a single carry. Prosise started the game strong with a great play to pick up a third down, but he dropped what likely would have been a touchdown later in the game and ended up just playing 16 snaps. A passing-down back for a broken passing game, Prosise is only an option in PPR formats.
Sep 17 - 7:49 PM

C.J. Prosise rushed four times for 11 yards in the Seahawks' Week 1 loss to the Packers.

Surprisingly, Prosise wasn't targeted in the passing game, though a besieged Russell Wilson got off just 27 throws. Prosise split carries with Eddie Lacy and Chris Carson. Only Carson did anything with his looks. Prosise's path to 2017 fantasy value remains as a pass catcher in PPR leagues.
