Draft note
by John Paulsen
Carson was initially 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. He had some sort of a procedure done on his knee, though he’s expected to be back for training camp. With Mike Davis (146 touches) now in Chicago, there is plenty of room or Penny’s role to grow without affecting Carson’s workload.

SEA RB Chris Carson - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

After an injury-plagued rookie season, Chris Carson took over the No. 1 running back spot for the Seahawks and helped them become the No. 1 rushing attack in the NFL. He rushed for 1,151 yards and nine touchdowns, but the 247 carries is what stands out because it shows his durability and the ‘Hawks confidence in him.

Fantasy Downside

Carson only caught 20 passes last season so although the rushing numbers were solid, the lack of involvement in the passing game limits his fantasy standing. But there is another factor that could hurt Carson and that is second year back Rashaad Penny. Penny was thrown into the offense slowly last season but he still averaged 4.9 yards per carry and will definitely see the football more in 2019.

2019 Bottom Line

Carson will still be the main workhorse for Seattle’s running game, but we expect his numbers to dip slightly. He still will break the 1,000-yard rushing mark and his ADP has him going early fifth round. This is a pretty good spot to grab him as the backs drop off after that. Carson will give you a solid RB2, but if he is your RB1, you will be disappointed.
