The #Seahawks are re-signing RB Chris Carson to a two-year deal worth up to $14.625 million, per source. The deal was done by
@Casey_Muir1and @Murphy_McGuire of @OctagonFootball.
In just 12 games, Carson was the No. 17 running back (half-PPR) last season. On a per-game basis, he was No. 13. This is probably the best landing spot for Carson since we know how the Seahawks will use him. He only averaged 11.8 carries per game (a career low), likely due to the presence of Carlos Hyde, but he set a career-high with 3.1 catches per game and posted an 80.4% catch rate. With Hyde gone, Rashaad Penny has the inside track on backup duties, since Carson's contract indicates that Seattle views him as the clear starter. Consider Carson a high-end RB2 heading into 2021 fantasy drafts.
SEA RB Chris Carson - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs 49ers
Carson has been as steady as they come through these fantasy playoffs. He’s hit at least 60 rushing yards in four straight games but has gone without a touchdown in his last two games. He missed the first 49ers game due to injury. In fact, he’s missed Seattle's last two games against the 49ers because of injury. He’s ready to try to run Seattle to the No. 1 seed if things break right for the Seahawks against a near-average defense against the run in San Francisco.
