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 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Pittsburgh
Chris Carson was solid in the season opener with 21 touches and 80 yards from scrimmage. More important was he had two touchdowns which made him one of the better Week 1 running backs, Part of the preseason buzz was Carson would be more involved in the passing game and he was the most targeted Seahawk on Sunday with seven.

Carson will face the Steelers this week who are actually fifth in aFPA after one week. The Steelers defense is supposed to be improved although they didn't look that way against Tom Brady. Still, the matchup on the road is tough enough to rank Carson as only a high-end RB2. He should get the touches and if you are his owner, hopefully, the touchdowns again.
