Mort: Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise is expected to remain the starter 'for the immediate future'

Chris Mortensen, ESPN - [Full Article]

When the Seattle Seahawks abruptly waived Christine Michael, it surprised many who follow the NFL.

Yes, Thomas Rawls returns this week from the fractured fibula that has sidelined him for much of the season, but he will be eased back into action.

Michael's release was about Michael's regression as a runner, and it was a statement about rookie C.J. Prosise, who is expected to remain the starter for the immediate future.

In many ways, Prosise makes the Seahawks an even more dangerous and unpredictable offense, which was evident in Sunday night's win over the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: 

The article states that Rawls is expected to be eased into action, so Prosise looks like a good start for at least one more week, maybe longer.
