Scouting report

SEA RB Chris Carson - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs Arizona
Chris Carson had another big game with 24 carries for 133 yards and two touchdowns. It was a season-high rushing yard and his sixth 100-yard rushing performance. Carson is getting even more touches with Rashaad Penny out. He has been a very potent offensive weapon for the Seahawks.

The Cardinals are up next and are ranked 29th in aFPA to running backs. Carson had 145 total yards from scrimmage in the first meeting with Arizona earlier this season. He should be in that range again with a favorable matchup and his recent production.

Start Carson as a top-five fantasy running back for Week 16 and expect 25 touches and 100+ yards in total offense.

SEA RB Chris Carson - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 at Carolina
With Rashaad Penny out, Chris Carson should get even more touches. Penny had been coming on in recent weeks, and that worried Carson owners. Carson had 18 touches for 91 total yards last week.

Carson faces the Panthers who are 32nd in aFPA to running backs, With the fact that Carson will get even more touches and how running backs have had huge games against Carolina, this sets up to be a big game for Carson.

Start him as a top five fantasy running back for Week 15 and expect a big day with 20-25 touches and over 100 total yards.

SEA RB Chris Carson - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 at Los Angeles Rams
Chris Carson had a huge game last week rushing for 102 yards and a touchdown. It was his fifth 100+ rushing yard performance of the season, but only second in the past seven games.

Carson faces the Rams who are 14th in aFPA to running backs, They met earlier this season and Carson had 27 carries for 118 yards. This game will be at the Coliseum where the Rams have played better on defense.

Start Carson for Week 14 but only as a low-end RB2. The Seahawks have been getting Rashaad Penny more involved in the offense and that is taking away numbers from Carson.

SEA RB Chris Carson - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 vs Minnesota
Chris Carson was limited to 26 yards rushing last game, but the more troublesome number is the lack of touches as he only accumulated 12. Carson had been consistently getting around 20 in recent games. Carson is still a big part of the offense, so don't take last week's game as anything more than just a blip on the radar.

Carson will face Minnesota who is 8th in aFPA to running backs. The tough matchup gives some negative value this week as the Vikings struggle more with the pass so Seattle could lean that way.

Start Carson as an RB2 for Week 13 and hope his touches return to that 20 mark.

SEA RB Chris Carson - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Philadelphia
Chris Carson had 28 touches last week and that produced 101 yards. The Seahawks have really ridden him and as long as he stays healthy, expect it to continue. Carson has had 20+ touches in every game but three and he was close in those.

The Eagles are up next for Seattle and Philly is ranked 7th in aFPA to running backs. We expect another large workload for Carson and similar results to last week. Start him as a low-end RB1 as the yardage total will not be big even with the number of touches he should receive.

SEA RB Chris Carson - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at San Francisco
Chris Carson eclipsed the 100-yard rushing mark last week and had a total of 128 total yards from scrimmage. It was his fourth 100+ rushing game of the season. And it was good to see him involved more in the passing game with two catches.

Carson will face the Niners who are third in aFPA to running backs. The tough matchup will drop Carson in the running back rankings this week, but he is still serviceable. Start him as a solid RB2 in all leagues and formats.

SEA RB Chris Carson - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs Tampa Bay
Chris Carson now has five straight games with 20+ touches. Last week, he ended up 90 yards and his third touchdown of the season. However, it was the first game this season he did not catch a pass, something the Seahawks claimed he would be more involved in.

The Seahawks running game will have a tough matchup against Tampa Bay who is ranked No. 1 in aFPA to running backs. Carson should still see the touches, but can he put up numbers against the Bucs.

We think he will take a step back this week as he only ranks a high-end RB2 in standard and PPR leagues. Start him but don't be surprised if he has just an average game.
