Draft note
by John Paulsen
Carson is the 18th back off the board in the late third, making him a good option for owners who don’t draft more than one back with their first two picks but want more of a floor than (perhaps) Mike Davis or Myles Gaskin can provide. Carlos Hyde has moved on, so Carson should see an uptick in carries, even if his catches fall off a bit. In his last 27 games, he has averaged 18.2 touches for 91.3 yards and 0.66 touchdowns.

SEA RB Chris Carson - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Vikings

With Rashaad Penny out, Seattle gave Chris Carson 34 offensive snaps (out of 54), 14 to Travis Homer, and just six to Alex Collins. So, as if it wasn't clear already, this is Carson's backfield. He only totaled 31 yards (including not a single target in the passing game) but found the end zone twice. This week, he gets Minnesota, who are coming off allowing 103 rushing yards on 21 carries between Chase Edmonds, Kyler Murray and James Conner. That, and Carson's usage, puts him on the borderline of RB1 territory this week. Carson has also scored a touchdown against the Vikings in three straight games.
