Pete Carroll wants to add to the running back position.
That was my big takeaway from his two media appearances today — firstly with Brock and Salk on 710 ESPN and then with reporters in his usual press conference.
“We have a real formula (for) how we win” stated Carroll. “We’ve been unable the last two years to incorporate a major aspect of that… (it) is to run the football the way we want to run.”

In the story, Carroll mentioned the above four names and "whoever else can be part of that thing." So it's unclear if they feel they have to guys to run the ball or need to add someone significant. Carson did look good in the limited time we saw him this year, but can he be the long-term answer? Carroll also said the O-line could have been better. This will be a situation to watch in the offseason.

Week 13 vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Eddie Lacy was given an opportunity last week as he played more than J.D. McKissic, but really didn't produce very well. That should push more touches to McKissic in Week 13 against Philadelphia.
The Eagles are ranked No. 1 in aFPA to running backs and with the chaotic Seattle running back situation and poor offensive line, there is no reason to play McKissic against Philly even though he is Seattle's best fantasy option. Keep him on the bench.
