| Tyler Lockett listed as Questionable|
Carlos Hyde expected to play
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 18, 4:12 pm
|The Seahawks list WR Tyler Lockett as questionable, but Pete Carroll said he doesn't "think there's any doubt" he'll play tomorrow. Carroll then qualified that a bit by saying they've got to make sure he's still feeling good tomorrow. (Brady Henderson on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: It sounds like Lockett will play tomorrow against the Cardinals but we probably won't know for sure until inactives come out 90 minutes before gametime. Carlos Hyde is not on the injury report so he will play. Chris Carson will be a gametime decision.
| Carlos Hyde, Chris Carson return to practice|
Hyde full, Carson limited
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Nov 17, 8:33 pm
|Good news with the Seahawks' backfield: Chris Carson returned to practice today as limited and Carlos Hyde was a full participant. Pete Carroll was optimistic yesterday about Hyde playing Thursday night.
But eight players didn't practice, including Tyler Lockett. (Brady Henderson on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: It sounds like Hyde could be the starting running back for the Seahawks on this short week as they get prepared for the Cardinals on Thursday. Carroll indicated yesterday that Hyde was closer to returning to action than Carson. Lockett owners need to have plan B in place in case he's on the inactive list. David Moore could be a viable replacement.
| Seahawks downgrade Carson, Hyde to Out|
Alex Collins elevated from practice squad
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Nov 14, 4:11 pm
|Seahawks downgraded running backs Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde to out for Sunday’s game vs. Rams. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: We're getting more clarity on the Seattle running game which is good news for fantasy owners. We can expect DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer to handle the bulk of the running back duties against the Rams with Alex Collins mixing in as well. This is largely a situation to avoid with Dallas being the most fantasy viable if you must play one from this group.
| Carlos Hyde practices Friday, Carson questionable|
Muddy RB mix in Seattle
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 13, 4:30 pm
|8 other players are questionable, including RBs Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde and CB Quinton Dunbar. Others questionable are: Mayowa, KJ Wright, Penny Hart, Freddie Swain and Alton Robinson. (Bob Condotta on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Carson was running on the sideline during practice today. It's tough to judge who is going to be active on Sunday. If Carson is active he would likely be the only viable play. If he's inactive, then any one of Hyde, DeeJay Dallas or Travis Homer could be viable. Fantasy owners wanting to play a piece of the Seattle backfield will need to keep track of news on Sunday morning.
| Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde out for Week 9|
DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer expected to carry the load
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 6, 6:00 pm
|Chris Carson is one of six players the team officially declared out, all of whom are starters or key backups. The others are running back Carlos Hyde (hamstring), cornerbacks Shaquill Griffin and Ugo Amadi (each hamstrings), defensive end Benson Mayowa (ankle) and left guard Mike Iupati (back). (Seattle Times)|
FFToday's Take: Carson is dealing with a mid-foot sprain and could be available next week. In the meantime, rookie DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer will receive the majority of snaps at the running back position for Seattle. Homer was limited in last week's game with a knee injury. Alex Collins was signed to the practice squad this week and could be called up on Saturday.
| Chris Carson remains a gametime decision|
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 1, 7:00 am
|Seahawks’ RB Chris Carson, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a foot injury, is expected to test how he feels in pre-game warmups, and one source said it is “a true 50-50” chance for him be able to play against the 49ers. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Carson missed practice all week so it's anybody's guess if he'll play or not. With the Seattle - San Francisco game not kicking off until late afternoon fantasy owners will be left in limbo. Carlos Hyde (hamstring) is listed as Doubtful and Travis Homer (knee) is listed as Questionable. DeeJay Dallas could lead the backfield but this is shaping up a situation to avoid.
| Seattle RB situation is a fantasy mess|
Carson, Hyde, Homer gametime decisions
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 30, 4:15 pm
|Carroll says Seahawks will go "all the way to gametime'' with RBs Chris Carson, Travis Homer and Carlos Hyde. Playing things pretty close to vest today.... (Bob Condotta on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: For what it's worth, Carson and and Hyde missed practice on Friday. Homer was limited. We could see Homer and rookie DeeJay Dallas split carries on Sunday but we won't know until Inactives come out or we get more insight from beat writers over the weekend. Seattle hosts San Francisco in the late afternoon on Sunday.
| Midfoot sprain for Chris Carson|
Injury not considered to be significant
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Oct 26, 7:00 am
|Seahawks’ RB Chris Carson has a “midfoot sprain”, per Pete Carroll. Carson will have a magnetic resonance imagining examination to determine the extent of the injury and how much time he could miss. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Carson left in the first half of Sunday night's extravaganza allowing Carlos Hyde to rush for 68 yards and a score. The injury to Carson is not considered to be significant according to Seattle beat writers. Carlos Hyde could get a start in Week 8 against the 49ers.
| Chris Carson expected to play, Hyde a gametime decision|
Carson practiced Thursday and Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Oct 3, 11:50 pm
|Seahawks’ RB Chris Carson, listed as questionable for Sunday with an ankle injury, is expected to play against the Dolphins, per source. RB Carlos Hyde, also questionable Sunday with a shoulder injury, will be a pre-game decision. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Carson has recovered nicely from his knee/ankle injury suffered last week. If Hyde sits, he could have a workhorse role with a little Travis Homer sprinkled in. Hyde was wearing a red no-contact jersey during practice this week. He seems to be on the wrong side of questionable.
| Knee sprain for Chris Carson|
MRI coming today
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 28, 7:00 am
|#Seahawks RB Chris Carson is believed to have suffered just a knee sprain Sunday, source said, one that should have him back on the field shortly - pending today’s MRI. Meanwhile, #Cowboys DT Trysten Hill will likely be fined, but not suspended, for rolling with Carson’s leg. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Carson was the victim of an uncalled for "gator roll" tackle by Hill in the 4th quarter. If Carson misses any time, hopefully it will be minimal. Carlos Hyde and Travis Homer would likely form a two-man committee if Carson were to miss any serious length of time.
