Week 7: vs Baltimore Ravens

All RB vs BAL

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The days of worrying over Chris Carson's early-season fumbles are decisively over. Carson continues to dominate the Seattle backfield - Rashaad Penny was scratched with a hamstring injury last week - to the tune of 92% of running back touches over the last 3 weeks. During that span he's taken on more carries (73) than anyone in football, and produced the third-most yardage (346) with them. Even when Penny returns to action, which could be as soon as this weekend, Carson should retain the lion's share of ground work. It's more likely Penny would mix in more with C.J. Prosise in the change-of-pace role. Of course, quarterback Russell Wilson remains the week-to-week wild card here. With a few more called runs than usual, he's on pace for his most attempts since 2015, averaging 25 yards per game in the process. They'll all benefit from working behind the strong Seattle line, which remains a liability in the pass game but a borderline-dominant unit for the run. Even with left tackle Duane Brown and right guard D.J. Fluker out last week, they did a fine job of moving the Cleveland line off the ball and giving Carson room. Both should return this week - they were close to playing on Sunday - which would be an even further boon for this attack. The Ravens have been uncharacteristically up-and-down in run defense to open 2019. They've looked impenetrable against the paper-thin lines of the Dolphins, Cardinals, and Bengals, giving up just 42 yards to running backs in those games. But they've also been run over for huge weeks by the backfields of the Chiefs (124) and Browns (192). With names like C.J. Mosley, Terrell Suggs, and Eric Weddle all suddenly gone, this unit is still very much in transition, and there are newfound holes to exploit. The line remains strong, led by space-eating specialists Michael Pierce and Brandon Williams, who tend to keep the linebackers consistently clean. But new inside man Patrick Onwuasor has mostly bombed in Mosley's shoes, and backup Kenny Young was dealt to the Rams for Marcus Peters on Wednesday. The team has gotten better play over the past two weeks from journeymen Josh Bynes and L.J. Fort; perhaps those two would provide a long-term upgrade. It's something coordinator Don Martindale will have to mull over as Onwuasor recovers from injury - he missed Sunday's game and is questionable again - and with the Seahawks' powerful ground game on the docket.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 6 vs CLE (3 / 8 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)

In limited duty, Prosise rushed the ball three times and saw three targets out of the backfield. The caveats: usual back Rashaad Penny was inactive; much of his usage was on the end of half 2-minute drill; he lost a fumble on a carry up the middle in the third quarter.

2019 Week 4 vs ARI (3 / 4 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Prosise saw the field only to spell Chris Carson briefly. He did not get the customary call for the two minute drill - however, he did sub in at the 6-yard line, presumably to give Carson a breather more than anything. Late in the came, he was similarly subbed into the red zone, and this time vulture a TD with a nice run up the middle, which put the game out of reach.

2019 Week 3 vs NO (4 / 5 / 0 rush, 5 / 5 / 38 / 0 rec)

With Rashaad Penny inactive, Prosise saw some early reps, and seemed to get an extended look after Chris Carson's fumble. With the Seahawks playing from behind, it may have simply been situational, as Prosise is the better pass catcher. Predictably, Prosise was efficient as a checkdown/outlet receiver, but did not do much on the ground. He did, however get a carry inside the 5-yard line, which he failed to convert.

2019 Week 2 vs PIT (2 / 7 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 13 / 0 rec)

Prosise was used situationally. He's still the most reliable receiver out of the backfield, and so he came in for the 2-minute drill in the first half. And he really does add a new dimension to the team, as an adept receiver who can also run it up the middle when necessary. He was leaned on somewhat heavily for that drive, but of course, that also made up the bulk of his playing time.
