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.

News From The Past 90 Days
Seahawks sign veteran RB Adrian Peterson
Seattle desperate for running back help
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 1, 4:07 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Seahawks are signing RB Adrian Peterson to their practice squad, per HC Pete Carroll. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Here we go again. Peterson is expected to be called up to the team as soon as he's eligible. Seattle has struggled on offense and especially running the ball since Chris Carson went down with a neck injury. Alex Collins (groin), Peterson and DeeJay Dallas will form a three-headed RBBC to avoid.


Injury Chris Carson will undergo neck surgery, out for the year
Hopes to return to Seattle in 2022
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 19, 5:15 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Running back Chris Carson, the Seahawks’ top rusher each of the past three seasons, will undergo neck surgery and miss the rest of the season, coach Pete Carroll said Friday. The decision for surgery now was made with the hope it will enable Carson, who was expected to lead the rushing attack this year but has played just four games, to return in 2022, Carroll said. (Seattle Times)

FFToday's Take: the Seahawks will press forward with Alex Collins, Rashaad Penny, Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas. Collins has been dealing with a groin injury the last few weeks and none of other backs have made a significant impact making it difficult to trust any of them in your lineup.


Injury Chris Carson Out for Week 10
Missed practice on Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 12, 5:19 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Pete Carroll said Chris Carson (neck) won’t play Sunday. He didn’t practice today. “We just need to make sure we’re doing the right thing.” Said they’re taking care of him this week and they’ll see about next week. (Brady Henderson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Carroll in knows for his optimistic tone on players but typically they end up on the Inactive list come game day. That's why Carson was never included in our projections this week. Alex Collins, Rashaad Penny, Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas will hold down the fort at running back in Week 10.


Injury Chris Carson pushing for Week 10 return
RB "wants to go for it" after upcoming bye week

Seattle Seahawks
Pete Carroll said Chris Carson "wants to go for it next week." Will meet with team doctors Monday after the bye to see if he's clear to practice. (Seahawks.com - John Boyle)

FFToday's Take: Carson's neck injury is one the team has reportedly had to manage for some time. The fact he is pushing to play suggests he might be symptom-free after missing the last four games. If he is able to gain medical clearance, he will eligible to return from injured reserve in Week 10 against the Green Bay Packers. It is unlikely he will be allowed to see his normal workload again anytime soon, but he should be a serviceable fantasy RB2 again even if he is capped at 15 touches per game.
