Chris Carson 2020 Outlook

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.

This is my approach going forward. I sat him for Mixon this week and regret it.

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? 😆

Expecting Carson to be the guy that sticks some TDs this week against the Pats 

Yeah, I don't think people are appreciating how much his ceiling appears to be lifted after 1 week. There are signals that indicate a shift in philosophy, IE 'let Russ cook'... and instead of forcing the ol' establish it and then set up the pass later (or be simply forced to) they are going to actually apply rational coaching and utilize their all-world QB to dictate early and often. It sets up quite well for CC, as they will use him in the passing game and he will 'opportunity' his way into a sweet amount of GL chances. It will also keep him fresher for 4Q work, and late season work in general.

Y'all have some pretty high expectations for an RB2. How many RBs in the league are not splitting carries? Only a small handful of guys got more touches than Carson this week. 

This. Are there even ten guys left in the league that are actual workhorse backs.

This is what I expected in this game. In games that are dog fights Carrol is going to keep the teams meanest dog Carson in the game.

I'm not sure why some of you guys are still trying to sell based on snap count after this game. He had 20 touches this game and has great hands. Seattle's offense looks just as good as any offense in the league. If he stays healthy he's at least going to finish a high end RB2.

A sell high, he will get injured and this team is looking to air it out 

Posts that throw around injury predictions with certainty are the absolute bottom of the bottom. What an absolutely useless contribution to the discussion and it's borderline ****** up.

Are you a guy who drafts D johnson, Will fuller every year? Its not an if, its a when. You don't want it to happen, but it would be one thing if he played through the injuries like Hopkins, Julio, J Jacobs. You hope for the best from him, but Im being realistic in the expectations that this is in the realm of possibility more than other players of similar value. Not bringing any ill will on him, but you cant just rule the possibility aside because its "the bottom of the bottom"

Here’s the problem:

You are speaking in absolutes. Injuries are never absolute. I understand some players are more injury prone due to play-style, genetics, or whatever else. However, nothing is an absolute in fantasy football especially injuries.

That’s the first thing and it applies to injuries in general. When it comes to Carson: it’s just flat out dumb when you consider he’s started 91% of the games his last two years.

Just cuff with Hyde and go through the season worry free at the RB2 position.

 

To be honest, having Hyde split carries with Carson is looking more and more genius by the week as RB's are dropping like flies from not having a full pre-season to get used to football.

Well people have been saying that about Frank Gore for like 10-15 years and the guy keeps going and is approaching his 50th birthday. If I had to guess, I'd say Carson will miss some games this year but I wouldn't be shocked if he played 16 either.

Missed one game last year. Two games the year before.

Also got outplayed and by Penny a few games and we werent certain he was going to be the starter with his fumbling problems. Things change. The one thing that doesnt necessarily is player health, and with no offseason I can see why SEA have used him at a limited role than last yr. He is a good talent on the team, but a RB that runs like he does is looking to get hurt even if its minor.
