Idk I am pretty concerned here. I don't expect receptions moving forward and it looks pretty 50-50. Might try to see what I can get for him 

 

He caught two TD passes on plays where he was the first read and we're talking about Carlos Hyde here. Don't get crazy.

Wow - a freak injury occurred from him being tackled. Not a hamstring, not something from just running. But he got tackled awkwardly and twisted his body.  Please kindly escort yourself out for p

Um Carson got 20 touches to Hyde's 7 and he got a TD, what more do u want? 😆

Seahawks Final RB Snap Counts:

Carson 28

Hyde 21

Homer 13

45% of snaps...

Arrival of Hyde (similar skillset) could have Pete trying to preserve Carson so stays healthy later into the season, hence the snap count. With Penny on PUP, they don't really have a 3rd down pass-catching back. The bright side is it seems like Pete is trusting Carson with that role this season vs Homer, which bodes well for his fantasy value in the case that his carries get reduced. I'm not overreacting after this first game simply because of game script--pull away with lead in the second half & Russ seemed to just be on the zone with his passing

Pete Carroll still loves his run heavy offense, don't think that will change

the more I think about it, Carson might’ve had has best day as a receiver he’s ever had in his career. I’m all aboard if Carson’s between the tackles crap is reduced and his receptions double year over year.

I don't want to sound like a hater because I don't hate Carson and I just did not like what I saw today. As for the receptions, I think that is more game plan than anything. You remember how every RB last year got receptions vs falcons? Thats how they play defense. I wouldn't expect it going forward

I mean sure but thats also how Chubb owners could not let go of Chubb even when it was apparent with Hunt the situation changed

You: "But but but"

Their situations aren't comparable, Hunt had two great rookie & sophomore seasons averaging over 240 fpts (268, 217) in KC before going to the Browns. 25 years young, talented, *versatile*. and still on his way up. Also, he didn't even sign his extension until 5 days ago, so the Browns RB situation was uncertain regarding role during the time most ppl drafted. That's why Chubb was still regarded as a bell cow. Also, Chubb had a BETTER year in 2019 than in 2018 before Hunt even arrived in CLE

Hyde has only had 1 out of 6 seasons with more the 200 fpts. He's 30, and we know what he is. He's on a one year deal, isn't a factor in the passing game, and everything he does Carson does a little bit better

Again, there is absolutely no way on the lords green earth he plays the full season. He runs like he wants to get hurt/hurt others in the process.  It’s great for fantasy when he plays but it’s why I never draft him. Hyde is a fantastic cuff he looked good.

Don't get me wrong, I love what Carson did yesterday but the usage is a concern. Having said that, it's only week 1 with no preseason and Carson is coming off injury. I can see his usage slowly increasing through the year. Not to mention, this game was a no contest so no reason to push Carson.

But again having said all that, his durability does concern me. I keep going back to whether I should have picked Conner instead, but he too has had injury issues. In the 3rd round, that's usually what you're going up against with any RB. There's going to be some question marks no doubt.

This is one of those games where you take the points, but don't feel great about it. Nothing to worry about unless the carry split keeps happening. I have Hyde stashed and think he would fill in well if CC went down but I have a hard time believing he brings as much to the table and will steal a lot of carries

Lol at the action in this thread. It's week 1, Carson is coming off of an injury and there were no preseason games. In a game that they won handedly why would they wear him out in the first week of the season? There is no doubt that Carson is and will be the clear cut lead back in this backfield moving forward. If you think this game will reflect his season long usage you are doing fantasy wrong.

Carson missed the end of last season and a pretty big chunk of the offseason. There were reports initially that he might not even be ready to go week 1.

Homer isn't good. At all. Once up to speed I would look at like a 65%, 30%, 5% split between the 3 (Carson, Hyde, Homer). 65% is more than enough snaps to be an RB1 especially with how damn good the offense looked with the change in playcalling.

I don't know what Carson scored you in your league....buuuut....I see 25 points from him.  I don't know guys.  Seems like we are barking up the wrong tree when it comes to questioning Carson.  Studded out last season before he broke himself.  Seems like he is studding out again yet we are cherry picking lame a** stats....we might as well start discussing covid cases......cause that is some dumbass metrics to follow.   

Frankly, I am looking at this stat line and scratching my head wondering where in the world he started to become a receiving threat.  If that trend continues, haaaa....this dude is more studly than previously thought.  I think some folks are just hating to hate.

Just re-watched his TD's and the previous poster was correct- Carson was the first read on the 1 yard pass and the long TD was a designed screen...

I'd gladly take 50 less carson carries for 20-30 more receptions. That might keep him fresher?

Am I the only one excited that this may be a boost for his value if they a new offense? Seattle was the most pass-heavy in neutral situation yesterday...it's staggering how different the offense is. Top-3 potential.

Last year he averaged 115 YPG from scrimmage against the NFCW excluding the last game where he got hurt early on.

While the NFCW is better this year it's mostly on offense not defense. However, Seahawks looked damn better on offense also.

Word been a Carson fan since '18, he got that old school I'ma run u over mentality. All the NFC west teams were above average already though on defense, gonna be interesting to see who makes it out this season.

This game should look a whole lot different than last week.  I’m expecting a pretty heavy dose of Carson.

Same. He's starting for me every week, regardless of matchup. Last week's pass heavy look from SEA doesn't worry me, if anything I can see it helping Carson by keeping defenses a little more honest. Expecting another solid state line from Carson this week.
