It’s the middle of the week, and that means it’s time to make decisions about who to start, sit or pick up in your fantasy football league.

Wednesday yielded a few important announcements for fantasy football. Here are a few of the top headlines:

Thomas Rawls will start for the Seahawks

He wasn’t completely healthy to start the year and split time with Christine Michael in a Week 1 win against the Dolphins (barely, 12-10), but Rawls according to Seattle head coach Pete Carroll, will get more work and will start in Week 2 against the Rams.

Rawls has just 12 carries for 32 yards last week, but against a putrid Rams team still reeling from an ugly 28-0 loss to start the season, the Seahawks could put up a much bigger offensive number than in Week 1. Not a bad choice to start as an RB2.

Rob Gronkowski practices again

For the first time since his hamstring injury — one that kept him out for Week 1 against the Cardinals, tight end Gronkowski is back to work in New England.

He is still questionable so monitor the injury news wire. If he is good to go in Week 2 against the lowly Dolphins, start him.

Other news and notes:

  • Seahawks Russell Wilson is practicing Wednesday and according to Carroll, “Everything is going according to plan.”
  • Among fantasy football stars listed as questionable as of Wednesday are Bills WR Sammy Watkins and Chiefs RB Jamal Charles
  • The following players were limited in Wednesday practice: Falcons WR Julio Jones and Muhammad Sanu, Dolphins WR DeVante Parker, Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart, Ravens WR Breshard Perriman, Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas andJaguars RB Chris Ivory
