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.

Seahawks rule out Chris Carson for Week 6
Neck injury

Seattle Seahawks
Seahawks ruled out QB Russell Wilson and RB Chris Carson for Sunday night in Pittsburgh. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Carson missed Week 5 with a neck injury and will sit again this week. That means more Alex Collins as the lead back. he handled 17 touches last week against the Rams. DeeJay Dallas should fill in as a change of pace back.

Seahawks’ RB Chris Carson is out for tonight’s game against the LA Rams due to a neck injury. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Carson out, we expected Alex Collins to get the bulk of work for the Seahawks at running back and is in the RB2 conversation if your needy at the position. Travis Homer is likely to work in as a change of pace option.


Injury Chris Carson missed practice Wednesday
Gametime decision

Seattle Seahawks
Seahawks’ RB Chris Carson did not practice today due to a neck injury and Seattle said it is not expected to decide his status until before Thursday night’s game vs. Rams. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Alex Collins played meaningful snaps last week (13 carries) and could be inline for a bigger workload in Week 5 if Carson is not able to go.
