2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
An injury-riddled season meant that Chris Carson's totals saw a significant dip in 2020. The Seahawks back missed four full games and was uncharacteristically kept to fewer than 10 carries in four additional games, much of that due to pesky injuries. When he finally got back to at least near full strength, however, Carson was immediately a major part of the Seattle offense as he finished the season with at least 13 touches in each of the Seahawks' final six games, including their playoff loss to the Rams.

While the Seattle offense was less efficient overall down the stretch when they leaned more heavily on their running game, the fact is that the team went 7-1 in the eight regular season games where Carson carried the ball at least 10 times. Data analysts would tell you that this might be more of a "correlation" situation than it is a "causation" one, but the Seahawks have been a team notorious for playing "run the ball and play good defense" football. That might not be great for Russell Wilson and the passing game, but it's proven to be great for the running game and more specifically Carson over the past few years.

Another thing worth noting is that Carson tied a career high with 37 receptions in 2020. As stated earlier, Carson played significantly fewer downs in 2020 than he had in his previous two seasons, so this was actually a substantial uptick in passing game work. While his 16-game pace would've put him at just under 50 receptions for the season and we shouldn't necessarily expect that kind of usage, it's nice to see that Carson is no longer a complete nothing as a receiver. We had to drop Carson down a bit in PPR rankings in previous seasons but that shouldn't be the case anymore as he's seeing enough work to be a reliable RB2 in all formats.

Injury Rashaad Penny has clean-up procedure on knee
Same knee as torn ACL in December 2019
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jun 15, 7:08 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Rashaad Penny also remains sidelined. Carroll said he had a clean-up procedure on the knee that suffered a torn ACL in Dec. 2019. Said he should be ready by training camp. "Rashaad is working out, doing a ton of stuff, but not quite ready to be out there where he’s reacting yet." (Brady Henderson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Penny has been dogged by injuries early in his NFL career, playing in only 27 games through three years. He's expected to be ready by training camp but remains a risky late-round pick as Chris Carson's backup. DeeJay Dallas, Travis Homer and Alex Collins are also in Seattle's running back room.
