2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
Some reports are that second-year running back Chris Carson has been the most impressive player at Seahawks OTAs. Carson was also considered by many to be the team's best runner in 2017, as he rushed for 4.2 yards per carry prior to getting injured. Injuries have plagued him throughout his college and now professional careers but Carson reportedly added 10 lbs of muscle this offseason which should help with the durability issues.

He could've been in line to be the team's primary early down back had Seattle not invested a first round pick in Rashaad Penny. It shouldn't be all that surprising that Carson is giving his all at OTAs, considering he will likely need to put on a show to make the case that he should be given an opportunity over Penny. As things currently stand, Carson will likely start the season splitting early down carries with Penny as a best case scenario.

While not truly a "handcuff" due to the nature of the backfield, Carson would likely be the primary beneficiary should Penny go down this season and that could make him a worthwhile stash in deeper leagues as he could slide in as an every week RB2 if given a decent workload.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Rashaad Penny out, Baldwin questionable
Baldwin expected to play
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 14, 4:30 pm

Seattle Seahawks
The Seahawks have ruled out RB Rashaad Penny (knee) for Sunday's game. LB K.J. Wright (knee) and S Maurice Alexander (concussion) are also out. RG D.J. Fluker (hamstring) is doubtful. WR Doug Baldwin (hip), DT Jarran Reed (oblique) and S Bradley McDougald (knee) are questionable (Brady Henderson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Seahawks will roll with Chris Carson and Mike Davis against the 49ers who represent a neutral matchup against running backs. Carson, Penny and Davis combined for 24 carries, 144 yards and 1 TD on the ground in their meeting two weeks ago. Baldwin was limited on Thursday and Friday but is expected to play.

Seattle Seahawks
Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer wasn't any more revealing than Pete Carroll was about how much Rashaad Penny will factor into the Seahawks' offense after his breakout game. Schottenheimer said Chris Carson will continue to start, as expected, now that he's back from a one-game absence. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: With Carson back from his groin issue, Seattle is capable of rolling out three running backs at any time making this is a nightmare situation for fantasy owners. Carson, Mike Davis and Penny could all see significant snaps or be left out in the cold in Week 11. As it stands now, Carson is only trustworthy fantasy asset of the group.

FFToday's Take: Carson was a game-time decision for the Rams in Week 10, so this should not come as that much of a surprise. However, Carroll did not expand on what he expected in regards to the roles of Carson, Mike Davis and Rashaad Penny, so owners will have little clarity about using any of them on Thursday. At this point, all of them should be considered high-risk flex plays.

Injury Chris Carson a gametime decision
Missed practice Wednesday and Thursday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 9, 1:17 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Pete Carroll told KIRO Radio 97.3 FM that running back Chris Carson (hip), right guard D.J. Fluker (calf) and strong safety Bradley McDougald (knee) will be game-time decisions Sunday against the Rams. All three sat out practice Wednesday and Thursday. "We’re trying to figure out how to manage their way through it and then find out nearer to game time if they can play for us, so we’re still waiting and seeing," Carroll said. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: We've learned you can't trust much of anything that Pete Carroll says when it comes to player injuries. Fantasy owners will need to have Plan B in place if Carson isn't able to play. Mike Davis would likely see the bulk of carries but Carroll could surprise us by dumping a bunch of touches on to rookie Rashaad Penny.

Injury Chris Carson listed as questionable
Hip, groin injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 2, 5:00 pm

Seattle Seahawks
The Seahawks listed three key players as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Chargers - safety Bradley McDougald, linebacker K.J. Wright and running back Chris Carson. Carroll also indicated that Carson will play. But Carroll made his status sound a little more uncertain. "He’s just got a little groin thing he’s feeling," Carroll said. “So he got through today (Friday’s practice). He practiced every day this week. Just got to make sure on gameday that he’s okay. If not, we’ll go with other guys and move forward. We’ll see.’’ (Seattle Times)

FFToday's Take: We've learned not to trust much of anything that comes out of Carroll's mouth. Unfortunately, the Seahawks play in a late-afternoon game on Sunday so we won't know Carson's status for sure until after the early games kick off. If Carson doesn't play, Mike Davis would get the start and likely see the bulk of the carries against the Chargers.

Hip injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 5, 1:00 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Pete Carroll confirmed on his weekly radio show that the Seahawks will have running back Chris Carson (hip) and defensive end Dion Jordan (hip) back for Sunday's game against the Rams. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Carson was a surprise inactive last week which propelled Mike Davis into a starting role. Davis racked up 25 touches against the Cardinals along with 101 rushing yards and 2 TDs. With Carson back, it will be difficult for fantasy owners to trust either running back given Carroll's verbal shenanigans.
