In just his fourth NFL start, Rawls plowed his way to 209 rushing yards and a rushing score. He also flashed some versatility with 46 receiving yards and a TD catch. His fantasy total would wind up being the second-best by a running back during the 2015 season, trailing only Arizona rookie David Johnson’s Week 15 effort.
