Summary

In theory, Carson enters 2020 with a brighter outlook than he did last year when he was a consensus late-second-round pick in fantasy drafts. His backfield-mate for the last two seasons, Rashaad Penny, looks like an early PUP candidate as he recovers from a torn ACL, leaving only Carlos Hyde (on his fourth team in the last two years) standing between Carson and a workhorse role. Even with Penny healthy and active through Week 13 last season, Carson still ranked fourth among all running backs in rush attempts. Despite his own season ending abruptly in Week 15 due to a fractured hip, Carson finished the year as the cumulative RB12 in PPR leagues on the strength of career-highs in attempts and yards while nearly doubling his 2018 target and reception totals. The hip injury is certainly a cause for concern, but GM John Schneider says Carson is doing great and will be ready to start the season. (May 22)
