I have 1 fumble on yahoo for Carson today...

 

The second fumble was applied to Wilson, because it was a terrible handoff and not Carson's fault.

Carson also had the same number of carries as last week (15). 🙄

 

How many yards did he get with those carries?

Hell be fine. Good volume and Pitt D at home is tough. Wilson proved he can carve defenses alive so Carson should have good production all year. Fumbles suck yeah but penny was pretty JAG besides the one good play

The fumbles are concerning but his running style is much better than Penny's horrible try and bounce everything outside style.

Better for getting hurt and a lower YPC. But I do like his style, albeit I cringe.

15/46 Week 1 + 6 catches/34 yards 2 TDs

15/60 Week 2 + 3 catches/27 yards 

Averaging 84 yards from scrimmage on 20 touches per game. I'll take that from my late 4th round pick allll year.

The fumbles are going to keep this a RBBC,  Although,  Penny is not good enough to win the job outright.  Frustrating for everyone.

18 touches and he had fumble issues yeah, but who cares? Overreaction city in here and the penny thread is a joke that people think he’s gonna usurp the guy.

pitt run defense is good- look at Sony Michel.

Penny averaged 2.8 ypc before he broke 1

 

Lol, always love the people who take away big runs for arguments sake.

 

Carson averaged 2.78 ypc before he had his 21 yard run.  See how dumb that is?

Big gainers are definitely worth mentioning when you're talking about backs with limited touches, like Penny. Don't discount them entirely, but understand that you aren't really getting someone who averages 6 yards a touch.

I own Chris Carson but someone else has Penny. Is CJ Proisse worth rostering as handcuff? I'm guessing not. If Carson goes down, could Proisse split carries with Penny? Or is it anyones guess?

From owning Carson last year I can tell you, he gets hurt and misses games, last year it was Davis or Penny in a toss up when he was out. Not sure if it’s still that way yet, but I learned to only roster Carson as it wasn’t worth holding all 3 backs, and was a gamble as to which to play. He doesn’t fumble often, and when healthy and not being punished, he is the unquestioned workhorse. I know Davis is gone, maybe it’s just Penny now, i’m Not sure yet.

Encouraging that he got the nod on the game sealing short yardage situation

 

That really brought my heart rate down.

No Penny today so that must mean a big workload for Carson. Providing he doesn't fumble again.
