Thomas Rawls went for 36 yards on 11 carries while catching one-of-two targets for 16 yards Sunday in the Seahawks’ Week 7 win over the Giants.

He and Eddie Lacy both saw 12 touches in the victory. Seven of Rawls’ 11 carries came after halftime as the Seahawks were able to kill clock once they gained the lead. Rawls was given the ball on third-and-goal from the two-yard line late in the first quarter, but couldn’t punch it into the end zone. Avery Moss forced a Rawls fumble later in the first half, which was quickly scooped up by All-Pro safety Landon Collins. Mistakes like that won’t help Rawls as he seeks to stay ahead of Lacy in Seattle’s backfield committee. Rawls will try to redeem himself against the Texans in Week 8.

C.J. Prosise suffered a sprained ankle in Week 7 against the Giants.

Prosise re-injured his ankle in pass protection on his first play of the game. He saw just two snaps before exiting. The setback puts Prosise's Week 8 status up in the air.
Oct 22 - 9:28 PM

J.D. McKissic registered 10 yards on three carries while securing two catches for 23 yards on two targets Sunday in the Seahawks’ Week 7 win over the Giants.

McKissic assisted Russell Wilson on a flea flicker touchdown in the fourth quarter but otherwise had a quiet afternoon. C.J. Prosise wound up playing just two snaps after aggravating his ankle injury, which allowed McKissic to maintain his role on passing downs. Fantasy owners would be wise to avoid Seattle’s backfield committee if possible.

Paul Richardson corralled both of his targets for 61 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Seahawks’ Week 7 win over the Giants.

Richardson saved his best for last by pulling in a 38-yard touchdown on a perfectly executed flea flicker by Russell Wilson. That touchdown put the game out of reach as the Seahawks buried New York with a 14-point fourth quarter. Richardson continues to be a big play threat for the Seahawks but his volatility makes him a difficult player to trust on a week-to-week basis. He’s now scored in three of his last five games and will aim to make it four out of six next week at home against the Texans.
Oct 22 - 9:25 PM

Tyler Lockett reeled in four-of-seven targets for 29 yards while contributing 15 yards on three carries Sunday in the Seahawks’ Week 7 win over the Giants.

Lockett came down with what appeared to be a 27-yard touchdown in the second quarter but pushed off on the play and was flagged for offensive pass interference. He hurt himself after getting tangled up with Eli Apple in the end zone on another play but returned almost immediately. Lockett still offers huge playmaking ability but so far that hasn’t translated into the fantasy realm. He gets the Texans at home in Week 8.
Oct 22 - 9:24 PM

Eddie Lacy posted 34 rushing yards on 11 carries while catching his lone target for a nine-yard gain Sunday in the Seahawks’ Week 7 win over the Giants.

Thomas Rawls got the first carry of the day but Lacy caught a nine-yard pass from Russell Wilson for his only catch on the very next play. He and Rawls split work right down the middle with both players receiving 12 touches. With Chris Carson (leg) done for the year, that’s probably the way it will be going forward. Rawls received all the goal-line work in Week 7, which obviously isn’t promising for Lacy owners. Even with bye weeks starting to set in, the one-dimensional Lacy remains a desperation RB3/4 with little upside.
Oct 22 - 9:22 PM

Doug Baldwin snared nine catches for 92 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets Sunday in the Seahawks’ Week 7 win over the Giants.

Baldwin was hampered by a groin injury leading into the Seahawks’ Week 6 bye but looked refreshed and better than ever Sunday at MetLife Stadium, a venue where he has always thrived. The highlights included a 32-yard grab where he used a stutter step to gain separation from Janoris Jenkins and later a 22-yard touchdown versus Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in the second half. Baldwin doesn’t have a great upcoming schedule with matchups looming against Josh Norman, Patrick Peterson and Jalen Ramsey a bit further down the line, but his track record suggests he’ll be able to maintain WR2 status through the worst of it. Baldwin gets the Texans at home in Week 8.
Oct 22 - 9:21 PM

Jimmy Graham nabbed three-of-six targets for 51 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Seahawks’ Week 7 win over the Giants.

He salvaged the week for fantasy owners by beating Eli Apple for a two-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter, but Sunday was otherwise a day of missed opportunities for Graham. He dropped a touchdown pass on fourth-and-goal early in the second quarter and later let another ball slip through his fingers on a play where he had nothing but green grass in front of him. It’s been a disappointing year relative to expectations for Graham, though he has scored a touchdown in two straight games after going his first four weeks without one. He’ll be a TE1 against the Texans in Week 8.
Oct 22 - 9:19 PM

Russell Wilson completed 27-of-39 passes for 334 yards and three touchdowns while adding 10 yards on two carries Sunday in the Seahawks’ Week 7 win over the Giants.

He was sacked one for a loss of 13 yards. The Seahawks snoozed through the first half but were brilliant after halftime as Wilson spread the wealth with three second-half touchdowns. He connected with Doug Baldwin on a 22-yard touchdown for his first score before uncorking another touchdown in the fourth quarter, this time on a 38-yard flea flicker to Paul Richardson. With the game already in hand, Wilson padded his stats by hitting Jimmy Graham for a two-yard score on his final play from scrimmage. Wilson could have had an even bigger day but overthrew a wide-open Baldwin on what would have been a 63-yard touchdown late in third quarter. Equipped with one of the league’s strongest arms and still mobile as ever, Wilson remains a near-impossible assignment for opposing defenses. He’ll get the Texans at home in Week 8.

C.J. Prosise (ankle) is active for Week 7 against the Giants.

Prosise is expected to be on a snap count after missing the past two games with an ankle injury. Most of his work will come on passing downs. CB Jeremy Lane, OT Isaiah Battle, LG Luke Joeckel, OG Jordan Roos, DT Garrison Smith and S Tedric Thompson round out Seattle's inactives for Week 7.
Oct 22 - 3:25 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports C.J. Prosise (ankle) will either be inactive or play "minimal snaps" Week 7 against the Giants.

This is a surprise. A full participant in practice both Thursday and Friday, Prosise was fully expected to return after sitting out two games and the bye with a bum ankle. With Prosise expected to be at best limited, J.D. McKissic should retain a role in the passing game, but neither is worth starting in fantasy. Prosise is not a must-hold in shallow leagues.
Oct 22 - 9:49 AM

Seahawks CB Jeremy Lane (groin) is out for Week 7 against the Giants.

Seattle will be without their primary slot corner, giving Giants WR Sterling Shepard an easier matchup.
Oct 21 - 11:41 AM

Seahawks CB Jeremy Lane (groin) is doubtful for Week 7.

Lane's absence helps the matchup for Sterling Shepard, assuming Shepard plays through his ankle injury. Lane covers the slot for Seattle on passing downs.
Oct 20 - 3:53 PM

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

Seahawks DE Cliff Avril (neck, injured reserve) says he's not considering retirement.

Avril said he's getting "numerous" opinions, but that he plans to return for an 11th NFL season in 2018. Coach Pete Carroll is one of the sources who has suggested Avril has played his final down of football. It's always a possibility with neck issues. Due $7.5 million between salary and bonuses next season, Avril turns 32 in April.
