Happy Thanksgiving, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Thursday, November 24 — about your Seattle Seahawks:
Rawls A Hot Start In Fantasy
Over at CBSSports.com, fantasy writer Jamey Eisenberg listed Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls as the Week 12 “Start of the Week” in his weekly start 'em, sit 'em column. Rawls, who returned to action last weekend against the Philadelphia Eagles, could face a healthy workload against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Here's part of why Eisenberg selected Rawls:
Rawls was expected to be part of a tandem with rookie C.J. Prosise, but Prosise suffered a broken scapula against the Eagles and will miss significant time. That now leaves Rawls in a featured role, starting this week against the Buccaneers.
And he should be great.
Rawls had 14 carries for 57 yards and three catches for 31 yards on four targets against Philadelphia, and he should be around 20 touches at Tampa Bay. There have been 10 running backs with at least 15 touches against the Buccaneers this year, and seven had either a touchdown or 100 total yards.
Rawls has eight games in his career with at least 15 touches, and he's scored double digits in Fantasy points in five of them. That's a good enough success rate to buy into Rawls this week, and we hope he's ready to take off from this point forward.
Social Post Of The Day
Today's "Social Post of the Day" comes Seahawks rookie tight end Nick Vannett, who is more than ready for this Saturday's college football showdown between Michigan and his Ohio State Buckeyes.
Seahawks players joined volunteers to serve the evening meal to residents at Seattle's Union Gospel Mission Hope Place Shelter on Tuesday, November 22, including offensive linemen Rees Odhiambo and Will Pericak, defensive end Frank Clark, running back Alex Collins, and linebackers Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright.
