Summary

Carson entered last season with major questions about his pedigree and ability to stay healthy. The former seventh-round pick answered those questions emphatically by finishing with nine weekly top-20 fantasy finishes, which trailed only Saquon Barkley, Todd Gurley, Christian McCaffrey, Alvin Kamara, and Melvin Gordon -- all of whom are consensus first-round picks in 2019 fantasy drafts. After leading all running backs with at least 240 carries in yards after contact per attempt, Carson has to be considered the favorite to maintain his role as committee-lead over last year's first-round pick, Rashaad Penny. Carson profiles as solid mid-range RB2 for the upcoming season. (May 1)
