Seahawks Beat: RB C.J. Prosise will have 'a very specific and important role" in the offense - [Full Article]

The Seahawks view the third-down back as a very specific and important role, and all signs point to C.J. Prosise having that role. If Thomas Rawls and Alex Collins end up being 1-2 on the depth chart as the first- and second-down back, so to speak—though don’t count Christine Michael out in that battle—Prosise would still have a significant role in the offense in passing situations and in the hurry up offense, similar to how the Seahawks used Fred Jackson last season.

Fantasy Impact: 

Jackson averaged 2.0 catches per game last season, so the Seahawks' third-down back isn't necessarily a role where fantasy owners can find a startable PPR back on the cheap.
