Fantasy football players everywhere, take note. According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Seattle Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls will be starting on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams.
#Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Thomas Rawls will start at RB this week. Team rewarded Christine Michael last week with the start.

The starting job probably means that Rawls will see more playing time than Michael. Still, much like the Week 1 game that Michael started, we should expect to see plenty of both men
Against the Miami Dolphins, Michael recorded 15 carries for 66 yards while Rawls put up 32 yards on 12 attempts.
Rawls may work into more of a true featured back role as the season progresses and he gets further removed from his injury.
For now, though, we shouldn’t realistically expect anything more than maybe a reversal from Week 1, with Rawls logging a few more carries than Michael.
