CJ Prosise (RB SEA 36%) The Seahawks running game has been anemic for several weeks, but they got a spark on Sunday when Prosise had 24 touches for 153 yards. He was the guy that Seattle sorely needed. He created mismatches with linebackers when he was coming out of the backfield, and he looked decisive and tough to bring down when he carried the rock. He will continue to have value moving forward especially in PPR leagues. Just how much value he has depends on the next guy on this list.
Thomas Rawls (RB SEA 49) He exploded onto the scene last year when Marshawn Lynch missed time due to an injury. He was expected to take the reigns this year, but got hurt in the second game of the year as he suffered a fractured fibula. The question is, exactly how healthy is he? Can he be the same guy he was in 2015? Also, a guy like Prosise will take away some of the touches, especially on third down. It is worth picking up Rawls, and seeing what he can do next week.
James Starks (RB GB 29%) It was a little difficult to gauge the impact that Starks had due to the fact that the Packers were getting their doors blown off by Tennessee. With that said, he looked very solid once he had the ball in his hands, and he added a touchdown on a screen pass. Starks will get plenty of touches moving forward, and the Packers need him to emerge to take some of the pressure off of Rodgers.
Cameron Meredith (WR CHI 33%) – Well someone has to catch the ball in Chicago right? Besides from the other team of course, Hi Jay Cutler! Meredith has shown flashes when he has gotten the opportunity, and with Alshon suspended for the next 4 weeks Meredith should become Cutler’s go to receiver.
Keep an eye on DaVante Parker. He had an excellent game against the Chargers as he caught 5 balls for 103 yards. The guy has a ton of talent, let’s see if he can put a couple of games together. Also keep an eye on Colin Kaepernick. That feels weird to type, but he had a solid game against the Cardinals and I fully expect him to light up a suddenly weak Patriots defense.
