Summary

After Seattle spent a first-round pick on running back Rashaad Penny, any hope Carson had of regaining his starting role was lost. For his own part, Carson did nothing wrong as a seventh-round rookie out of Oklahoma State besides breaking his leg in Week 4. Clearly the best back on Seattle's roster last year, Carson rushed for 4.2 yards per carry compared to less than 2.8 for the team's other early-down runners, Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls. Carson showed elusiveness and the ability to pass block before getting injured, so if anything were to happen to Penny there's little doubt Carson would be next in line for the lion's share of carries for the Seahawks. As long as reports on his recovery remain positive, you can do worse than Carson as a late-round flier in deep leagues. (May 6)
