Ware has been used heavily during Charles' absence to begin the season, turning 21 carries in 127 yards and nine receptions (on 11 targets) into 177 yards. With one end-zone also to his name, Ware will continue to be a boon to fantasy prospects until Charles is ready to return.
Although Rawls (lower leg) was trending toward inactive status, he'll officially yield the top spot in Seattle's running back group to Michael for one game. Michael's preseason prowess has extended into the regular season, as he's averaging a robust 5.0 YPC on his 25 rushes through two games.
The third-year back will get first crack at lead-back duties in the absence of Doug Martin (hamstring). Given his considerable proficiency in the passing game, Sims should see a significant boost in overall touches against the Rams, with Jacquizz Rodgers spelling him on occasion.
As relayed by Adam Schefter of ESPN on Sunday morning, Rawls will miss at least one game in order to tend to a lower leg contusion. With C.J. Prosise (hand) also on the inactive list, Christine Michael is poised to receive a plurality of touches out of the Seahawks' backfield in Week 3.
Jones was questionable heading into the matchup after being limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday. He could see his snap monitored closely on Sunday, in which case DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard could expect to see increased action.
Both Prosise and Thomas Rawls (lower leg) are expected to take a seat, opening the door for Christine Michael to take on the majority of the backfield reps in Week 3. If the preceding comes to fruition, fellow rookie Alex Collins will likely serve as the primary backup to Michael.
With absences from all three practices this week, Rawls will rest his bruised leg for at least one game, leaving Christine Michael in a prime position to handle the bulk of the RB reps in Week 3, especially with rookie C.J. Prosise (hand) slated to join Rawls on the inactive list.
Magee will provide depth in Seattle's backfield while Thomas Rawls (lower leg) and C.J. Prosise (hand) may not play due to injuries. Christine Michael figures to benefit the most in terms of fantasy production Week 3.
Hillman signed with iVikings earlier this week after Adrian Peterson's knee injury. It may take him a few weeks before he learns the offense and is active on game days. He could figure into the mix at running back later in the season, however.
The status was confirmed on Friday after the oft-injured running back missed the entire practice week. Kenyan Drake is expected to receive the start against the Browns, with Jay Ajayi, Damien Williams and Isaiah Pead all available for carries as well in the makeshift Dolphins backfield.
