He's not a real flashy pick, but Seattle running back Chris Carson provided another solid fantasy season in 2019 as he rushed for 1,230 yards and scored nine total touchdowns in his third NFL season. Fantasy owners may remember that there was some hype that he'd be used more in the passing game heading into 2019 and while that ended up being true, Carson's 17 additional receptions on the season from what he had in 2018 resulted in just 103 more receiving yards so the bump resulted in negligible fantasy improvement.

The real value with Carson is the heavy workload he's been given over the past two seasons. He's carried the ball over 18 times per game over the past two seasons - a number not often seen by backs selected outside the first round of fantasy drafts. While the Seahawks did bring in Carlos Hyde seemingly to at least be Carson's backup while Rashaad Penny starts the season on the PUP list, it seems likely that Carson will remain by far the carry leader on the roster. Hyde is a similar back to Carson with average-at-best speed and a lack of historical usage in the passing game. It's good for Carson's usage, however, that Hyde was the only back of significance that the team added in the offseason, as he doesn't really do anything particularly better than Carson and will likely be used sparingly.

Carson should again provide at least 250 carries as long as he remains healthy. If he can continue to make improvements in the passing game then his fantasy ceiling will become significantly better, but he's a solid high-floor RB2 with low-end RB1 upside in standard leagues, while remaining still a strong enough contributor to be a quality RB2 even in PPR leagues.
