Draft note
by John Paulsen
Last year at this time, Carson was expected to lose the lead back job to rookie Rashaad Penny, but that never happened and Carson finished with 1,314 total yards and nine touchdowns on 267 touches. With Mike Davis (146 touches) now in Chicago, there is plenty of room or Penny’s role to grow without affecting Carson’s workload, but Carson is making a case for a 300-touch season. He's apparently shown good hands as a receiver, and the Seahawks want to double his targets. He's reportedly taking at least two-thirds of the snaps in camp with the starters, with Penny rotating in occasionally. Given all this positive buzz, I have a feeling I’m going to have to pull the trigger in the third round to get him.

SEA RB Chris Carson - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs New Orleans
Chris Carson had very similar numbers Week 1 and Week 2 with the exception that he scored two touchdowns in the season opener. This gives us a good look at how Carson will be used most of the season. The Seahawks want to get RB Rashaad Penny so that means Carson will not be getting 25 touches every game, but he should be around 18-20.

Carson will face the Saints who were ranked third in aFPA to running backs in 2018. New Orleans has been good against the run so Carson's numbers should be similar to the first two weeks. The matchup puts him as a high-end RB2 for Week 3. Start him, but don't expect a 100-yard day from him.
