Carson finished as last year’s No. 11 running back (half-PPR), appearing in 15 games. His per game average was the 12th-highest at his position. Rashaad Penny tore his ACL late last season and it doesn’t look like he’ll be a factor early in the 2020 season, so the Seahawks signed Carlos Hyde to serve as Carson’s backup until Penny is ready. Carson had a fumbling problem early in the year, losing a fumble in each of the first three games, but the Seahawks stuck with him and gave him 20+ carries in each of the next five games. This shows just how much leash Carson has as the leader of this backfield. Hyde isn’t particularly good in the passing game, so Carson’s receiving role could be expanded early in the season. He’s a nice value as the 22nd running back off the board.
