The Seahawks running back situation could get confusing for fantasy owners. C.J. Prosise is one of those players who could end being gold or bust. With Eddie Lacy the starter on paper, Prosise figures to be the top backup, but more importantly, the full-time third-down back. This will elevate his value in PPR leagues.
Prosise only played in six games last season because of injuries. He also has a pedigree as a wide receiver so there might not be many carries for the former Notre Dame star. He has potential, but with zero track record and heavy competition, it's hard to say where he falls in the fantasy running back pool.
2017 Bottom Line
There's uncertainty surrounding Prosise's role in the Seahawks' running game, but we know he will play on third downs. We have him ranked as our RB53 in standard leagues and RB47 in PPR. Even with the snaps on third down, he is strictly depth, but would make for a nice handcuff to Lacy in case he takes over as the primary back. His ADP has him going in the 12th round, which sounds about right for him.
