Chris Carson returned to the team late last week and took part in Sunday’s mock game. He got a heavy dose of work with Carlos Hyde and Travis Homer sitting out and head coach Pete Carroll raved about Carson after the scrimmage was done.
“Chris has got fresh legs . . . He looks great,” Carroll said, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. “He hasn’t had a snap out here that he didn’t look good. So we don’t have any hesitation with Chris at all. He’s ready to go.”
Carson posted 1,230 yards on 278 carries last season and scored nine overall touchdowns before missing the season finale and both playoff games. Carson finished as last year’s No. 11 running back (half-PPR). His per game average was the 12th-highest at his position. He's ranked 16th on our RB list heading into drafts.
SEA RB Travis Homer - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs San Francisco
Rookie Travis Homer gets the start Sunday with the top three running backs for Seattle all out. The Seahawks brought in veterans Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin, but Homer, who has eight career carries, will get the bulk of the action.
Homer will face San Fran who is 2nd in aFPA to running backs. We expect him to get enough touches to be relevant although the matchup might limit the production. Start Homer as a solid RB2 for Week 17 as Seattle will not abandon the running game because of the injuries.
