Prosise had injury issues once again last year, eventually needing abdomen surgery. He played just five games and had four offensive touches. Prosise has played 16 games in three seasons. He is going to have to earn a roster spot for the coming year. Prosise has good size for the position and also good moves in space. He catches the ball well and can be an asset in the passing game after playing as a receiver much of his college career. He still needs to work on his between the tackles running. Durability is a big concern for Prosise after having a hard time staying on the field his first three seasons.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Prosise has a hard time staying healthy, making him a tough guy for fantasy teams to pick. His touches will be limited. He could get around 200 total yards with a score.

Seattle Seahawks running back C.J. Prosise stepped in as the change-of-pace back for Chris Carson on Sunday when Rashaad Penny couldn't go, but he only got to touch the ball four times. Given such limited opportunities, he'd want them to count, but unfortunately, it bit him this week. Prosise was called on to power forward to a first down late in the third quarter, but instead of picking up the necessary yard, Prosise coughed up the football in Seattle territory. Prosise has shown flashes of serious potential in the past, but he always seems to have something go wrong, whether it be an injury or a mistake. He's not fantasy relevant for now, and it's questionable whether he ever will be.
Seattle Seahawks running back C.J. Prosise got the call with Rashaad Penny declared inactive once again on Sunday, and this time, Prosise found his way into the end zone. Prosise got tagged for a carry from nine yards out and squeezed through a nearly nonexistent hole to slip all the way through the defense and seal the game late in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately, that was all Prosise accomplished in the game. The team has kept him around for years because he makes amazing appearances in practice and preseason games, but so far, Prosise has done nothing to put any real pressure on those in front of him in the depth chart.
Given the chance to be the team's No. 2 for the week, Seattle Seahawks running back C.J. Prosise didn't make much noise. With running back Rashaad Penny (hamstring) out on Sunday, Prosise got his chance to remind everyone why Seattle has put up with his annual injuries. Instead, he tallied just five yards on four carries. He did catch five passes out of the backfield to rack up 38 yards, but most of that came on one 21-yarder. Penny's injury isn't considered serious, and he's currently expected to play in Week 4. For now, it looks like Prosise will continue to have to sit tight because he's not putting any pressure on anyone ahead of him in the depth chart.
Seattle Seahawks running back C.J. Prosise is actually healthy! At least, momentarily. He's been scratched on a game day morning before, but for now, he may finally get a crack at the field. Prosise has been one of the most injured players in the league for the last couple years, and it's been a serious point of consternation in the locker room. This preseason though, Prosise reminded everyone of why the team has stuck by him. He was excellent whenever he touched the ball, and he could be a surprise performer in Week 1. With his injury history, it wouldn't be surprising if the team took advantage of his health while it was good, and he could easily put up a huge play or two. Of course, he could also not play a single down because Seattle's coaching staff hates fantasy owners.
Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise carried five times for 42 yards against the Oakland Raiders on Thursday, Aug. 29, and likely claimed the No. 3 spot on the depth chart behind RBs Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny, in the opinion of the Seattle Times' Bob Condotta.
Seattle Seahawks running back C.J. Prosise has struggled mightily to find his way in the NFL to this point. Prosise has constantly been injured or recovering from injuries, and they've ranged from a fractured scapula to an abdomen injury that required surgery last season. His coaches have questioned his toughness, and he's seen other running backs on the roster pass him by. In Saturday's preseason game against the Chargers though, Prosise reminded everyone of why he is even still around. Prosise carried the ball five times for 32 yards and a touchdown. He also snagged a pass for 15 yards. Prosise is still an extreme injury risk, but with Rashaad Penny struggling in front of him, Prosise could push his way up to the No. 2 slot if he can stay on the field.
Seattle Seahawks RB Travis Homer (quadriceps) and C.J. Prosise (hip) will not play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 8.
Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (illness) did not participate in practice Thursday, July 25, because of an illness. He is expected to return in the next day or two.
Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise has head coach Pete Carroll 'fired up' heading into training camp. 'To add him into the competition is really nice,' Carroll said.
Fantasy Spin: Once a promising PPR option, injuries have derailed Prosise's career. Even if he makes the roster, he won't be worth drafting.
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that running back C.J. Prosise has been healthy this offseason as he tries to win the third-down pass-catching role behind Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny. "He has been fit throughout, hes really strong, worked out really hard in the offseason to get his strength right, and his weight is up, but hes fit and has really been able to do a little bit of everything. So to add him into the competition is really nice. So we're fired up about C.J. being back," Carroll said. Prosise will be competing with J.D. McKissic and rookie Travis Homer. The 25-year-old Prosise showed promise in his rookie year in 2016 but has played in 16 games in his three seasons and just hasn't been able to stay on the field. At best, he'll be a PPR flex sleeper if he wins the third-down job for a team that led the league in rushing in 2019.
Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise could be cut in order to keep RBs J.D. McKissic and Travis Homer, in the opinion of the Seattle Times' Bob Condotta, who believes the team may not be able to sneak Homer onto the practice squad and that McKissic's dependability gives him an edge over Prosise.
Seattle Seahawks RBs C.J. Prosise, J.D. McKissic and Travis Homer will all be candidates for the third-down back role during training camp. Prosise and Homer did miss some time this offseason because of hamstring injuries.
Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (hamstring) reportedly left practice with a tight hamstring Thursday, June 13, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
