2018 Fantasy Outlook
After being selected by Seattle in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, Prosise has battled groin and ankle injuries and suited up for just 11 games in two seasons. In 2017, Prosise rushed 11 times for 23 yards (2.1 YPC) and caught six of 11 targets for 87 yards and zero total scores through five contests. Prosise's window to contribute to the Seahawks may be closing, too, as they picked up running back Rashaad Penny in the first round of this year's draft. Prosise may be scrambling for passing-down reps. Read Past Outlooks

Coach Pete Carroll expects Prosise (abdomen) to be fully healthy by the start of Seattle's offseason training program April 15, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. "C.J. really needed the surgery that he had," Carroll said. "It was a little more extended than we thought, but he'll be back from that. That's about an eight-week recovery or something like that so he'll be fine."
ANALYSIS
Prosise has appeared in16 of a possible 48 regular-season games since the Seahawks tabbed him with a third-round draft selection in 2016. While the Seahawks haven't completely given up on him, it's possible Prosise could face an uphill battle for a roster spot in 2019 given his lack of reliability. A former wide receiver, the hope is that Prosise can be effectively utilized as a receiving option out of the backfield who could complement a lead runner like Chris Carson or Rashaad Penny.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Wrist and shoulder injuries limited Prosise to only six games in his rookie season, but he showed his upside with 153 yards from scrimmage against the Patriots in Week 10. A wide receiver converted to running back in his final year of college, he has good size but runs with more finesse than power, using his speed and agility to avoid tacklers and get into the open field. He's also still learning the finer points of his position, sometimes hesitating in the hole and still needing work in pass protection. The Seahawks signed Eddie Lacy in the offseason to handle early down work, and Thomas Rawls is still capable of taking snaps when he's healthy, but Prosise could settle in this season as a dangerous receiving option for Russell Wilson out of the backfield, assuming he's able to avoid further injury himself.
It's funny to see Prosise compared to the estimable Fred Jackson, as the Seahawks had the last glimpse of Jackson during the 2015 season. Prosise only played one year of running back at Notre Dame — he converted from wide receiver — but quickly became comfortable, rolling up 6.6 yards a carry and 11.8 a catch. The Seahawks snapped him up in the third round, the fourth running back selected. He's already the best pass-catching back Seattle has, and he could be in for a meatier role if Thomas Rawls can't recover quickly from an ankle injury. The team has been especially guarded with Rawls' status, but there's some concern he might miss the entire preseason. Christine Michael is also in the mix and has the experience edge on Prosise. We won't blame anyone who makes Prosise a higher priority than Michael.
