Week 3: vs New Orleans Saints

All RB vs NO

FBG says: Tough matchup. Chris Carson fumbled the ball twice in Seattle's week two victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The second fumble landed Carson on the bench in favor of second-year player Rashaad Penny. Seattle did not waiver from its typical run-heavy offensive attack with Penny in the game, as the team still totaled 27 rushing attempts in the game. Heading into week three, Chris Carson will almost certainly reclaim his role as the Seahawks' bell-cow running back. Carson does an exceptional job at avoiding the negative plays that Rashaad Penny is prone to producing. In a run-first offense, it is paramount to avoid falling behind the chains due to negative plays, and that skill is precisely what Carson provides over Penny. Seattle's offensive line is neither a particular strength or weakness for this rushing attack; they do a sufficient job providing the rushers with opportunities, but they do not rank amongst the league's best. New Orleans' defensive statistics through the first two games of the 2019 season are arguably the most misleading in the NFL. The Saints have faced the toughest schedule of opposing offenses to start the season. Both offenses, as expected, put points on the board in bunches through a variety of ways. On the ground, the Houston Texans ran for 180 yards in the season opener against the Saints, with 40 yards coming on 4 carries from quarterback Deshaun Watson. In week two, the Saints traveled to Los Angeles to take on Sean McVay and the Los Angeles Rams. McVay is inarguably one of the NFL's smartest and most creative offensive minds, and he showed that off throughout a week two victory over the Saints. The Rams running backs totaled precisely 100 rushing yards on 22 attempts in week two. Looking underneath the hood of this New Orleans defense, all seems to be operating as usual. The Saints' defensive line is disrupting runs on a level comparable to the team's top-ranked 2018 run defense. At linebacker, Demario Davis' performance, in particular, stands out as one point of potential improvement. Since arriving in New Orleans, Davis has been one of the team's best run-stoppers, but through two games, Davis has struggled in run-defense. If Davis returns to his old form, as expected, this defense will likely regain its status as one of the league's toughest to run against.

Recent Game Summaries

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.
