This may or may not quiet the Christine Michael "truthers" out there, but Rawls is expected to ramp up his workload in the coming weeks, and the team is planning to start him against the Rams in Week 2. One very interesting note from Week 1: Rawls, serving as the backup to Michael, caught three passes on three targets. He saw only 11 targets in 13 games (starting nine) last season. This is a great sign for his potential value in PPR formats.
