Chris Carson News
While Chris Carson is expected to open the season as the lead running back for the Seattle Seahawks, head coach Pete Carroll has said that he isn't sure who will be the lead back between Carson and second-year runner Rashaad Pennyand that the situation could change on a week-to-week basis. It's worth monitoring this situation as the season approaches, but if neither player is able to claim the lead back duties, this backfield is heading towards being a volatile and disappointing one for fantasy owners, especially in dynasty leagues where Penny's value would take a sharp drop if he's not able to establish himself as a lead back over his first two seasons.
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that running back Chris Carson (knee) "had a little work done" on his knee, but he should be back in a couple of weeks. Carson has had injury issues before, so this one is worth watching as we get further into the summer. The 24-year-old, a seventh-round pick in 2017, has yet to play a full season in his two years in the NFL and managed just four games in his rookie season. He had 247 carries for 1,151 yards (4.7 average) and nine touchdowns as he ran away with the job in Seattle in 2018. He'll have to keep it up this season to hold off Rashaad Penny, who is entering his second season and should have a larger role.
Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson may not like the outcome of the game, but he has to be happy with his performance. Carson ran the ball 22 times for 119 yards and a touchdown in the overtime loss to San Francisco. He also caught six passes out of the backfield to chip in an additional 29 yards. The 148 scrimmage yards are the most hes gotten in a game this season, and hes on the verge of cracking 1,000 rushing yards for the season. The consistency hes provided the team has been one of the key reasons the Seahawks are looking at a 99% chance of making the playoffs.
Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson was one of the brightest spots on Seattles offense when they beat the Vikings 21-7 on Monday night. Carsons 4.1 YPC certainly wasnt special, but he broke off a couple big runs and played a critical role in Seattle getting the win as he tallied up 90 total yards on the ground. He also made another ill-advised hurdle attempt, but at least this one didnt involve a Spiderman-style ending. Carson is just slightly off pace to top 1,000 yards this season, but he may see his carries decrease a little as the team looks ahead to the playoffs. Theyll likely want to preserve the oft-injured tailback.
Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson (finger) returned to a full practice on Friday after being limited on Thursday. Carson was expected to play Monday night against the Vikings despite dislocating his index finger in Week 13. He'll remain the lead back in a touch matchup against Minnesota's stout run defense, where he'll be more of a low-end RB2. Rookie Rashaad Penny and Mike Davis will continue to fight for work behind Carson.
