2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Seahawks invested a first round draft pick at the running back position in 2018, which only makes Chris Carson's breakout season even more impressive. Carson, a second-year player who was drafted in the seventh round in 2017, held off first-rounder Rashaad Penny all season on his way to 1,151 rushing yards and nine touchdowns on the ground, out-touching Penny by a total of 267 touches to Penny's 94 during the regular season.

Carson really picked up the pace near the end of the season, rushing for 100 or more yards in each of his final three regular season contests, but was then completely shut down by the Cowboys in Seattle's lone playoff game where he rushed for just 20 yards on 13 carries. Still, even in that contest where he was completely bottled up, the Seahawks stuck with Carson, giving Penny just four touches.

Carson shined in Seattle's conservative, "establish-the-run"-style offense, leaving many fantasy owners scratching their heads as we look forward to 2019. While it is presumed that Carson will be the lead back in Seattle again this season, it'd be hard to argue that the Seahawks offense wouldn't be better off throwing the ball more often this season, which could lead to fewer carries for Carson even if he does end up continuing to hold off Penny.

Carson is currently being drafted in the mid-fifth round and somewhere in the mid-20s at running back, which is a fair price considering the other backs being selected around him. Still, fantasy owners do run the risk that Carson ends up being less effective on the ground and thus ends up conceding more carries to Penny, thus making himself essentially fantasy irrelevant due to his lack of usage in the passing game.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Chris Carson (hip) doesn't return after Q2 injury
C.J. Prosise (arm) also out, Travis Homer takes over
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Sun Dec 22, 8:07 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Jessamyn McIntyre (@JessamynMcIntyr) on Twitter: "Just now @JenTalksSports reports Chris Carson is out for the rest of the #Seahawks game" (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Carson was injured in the second quarter and ruled out after halftime. He converted nine touches into 60 scoreless yards prior to exiting. C.J. Prosise (arm) was also ruled out, leaving the Seahawks with just RB Travis Homer and FB Nick Bellore. We'll see who's available in practice this week.


Injury Rashaad Penny out for the season
ACL injury
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Dec 9, 4:15 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Pete Carroll said Rashaad Penny will miss the rest of the season after injuring his ACL last night. Carroll said he hasn’t heard about the MRI results but that the doctors “could tell it’s a significant injury.” (Brady Henderson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Penny had just started getting significant playing time two weeks ago and now will be lost well into next year if his ACL is torn and surgery is required. Chris Carson will move back into workhorse role with C.J. Prosise mixing in on third downs. The Seahawks play at Carolina and home against Arizona in Weeks 15 and 16.


Rashaad Penny back in the mix?
HC suggests bigger role coming for second-year RB
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 25, 4:55 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Carroll on Chris Carson's fumbles: "Chris is a guy who is a big part of our team and we’ll do everything we can (for him). ... Competition is a beautiful thing and no reason not to get (Rashaad Penny) back in there next week. We'll get those guys hammering away." (The Seattle Times - Adam Jude)

FFToday's Take: Carson and Penny pretty much split snaps in Week 12 after the former's ball-security issues popped up again. To be fair, Carson recovered the one fumble charged to him. Either way, we've seen this movie before: Carson is one of the better backs in the league and Penny has looked good from time to time. Penny might see a few more carries after running for 129 yards and a score versus the Eagles, but he'll remain a risky upside RB3 option in Week 13 against the Minnesota Vikings.
