While Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Monday he expects Thomas Rawls will be able to play Sunday against the 49ers, the team appears to be looking at other tailback options just in case — either for this week or the playoffs.
There was also a report (which has yet to be confirmed by the transaction wire or the team) that the Seahawks have re-signed running back Kelvin Taylor to the practice squad. Taylor, a sixth-round pick of the 49ers this year, was on Seattle’s active roster for the win over the Rams, then released the following week. He is the son of former NFL star Fred Taylor, and like his father played at Florida.
NE RB Jonas Gray - Week 19, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 19 vs Ravens
Since meeting a team meeting in Week 12, Gray saw only three carries over the next three games. He did total 17 carries in Weeks 16 and 17, to close out the season. This weekend Gray has to contend with fellow RBs Shane Vereen and LaGarrette Blount, as well as an opponent allowing the third fewest aFPA to RBs in the league. Gray makes for reasonable boom/bust lottery ticket option this weekend, but the risk with using him is not low.
