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)

Seahawks | Rashaad Penny eyeing bigger Year 2 role (Tue Aug 20, 03:54 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny has routinely flashed the ability to 'make one-handed grabs with the same ease as some of the NFL's stickiest-fingered receivers' and is expected to be a bigger factor than he was during his rookie season, according to ESPN's Brady Henderson.

Our View: A first-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft, Penny didn't stand out as much as expected during his rookie season. Penny echoed sentiments from Seahawks RB coach Chad Morton that he and Chris Carson can become the same kind of one-two punch the New Orleans Saints enjoyed with Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram over the last two seasons.

Seahawks | Chris Carson solid in loss (Sun Aug 18, 11:44 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson rushed five times for 25 yards and caught one pass for three yards in a 25-19 preseason loss to the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, Aug. 18.

Seahawks | Chris Carson the clear No. 1 (Thu Aug 15, 10:52 AM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson is the clear No. 1 back, and he could see two-thirds of the workload, in the opinion of NBC Sports Northwest's Joe Fann.

Our View: Carson's ADP is stealing right now. He's available in the fourth and fifth round of drafts, but has an outlook similar to third round backs, with second round upside. He finished 2018 with his strongest performances to date.
