Seahawks | Chris Carson most impressive RB in Seattle?

Fri, 15 Jun 2018 11:54:03 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson has been "the most impressive of any running back (in the team's offseason practices) this summer", and general manager John Schneider has said that at times Carson looks like the best player on the field, according to ESPN's Brady Henderson.

Fantasy Tip: While the Seahawks couldn't have known Carson was going to drop their jaws when they drafted Rashaad Penny in April, it was clear running back was far from their biggest need. Carson was the best back in Seattle last season by a wide margin, and it now appears he stands a real chance to push Penny hard for the starting job. Early drafters should not hesitate spending a late-round pick on Carson in the event he forces a backfield split or even possibly wins the starting job in the preseason.

Seahawks | Chris Carson working with the starters

Wed, 13 Jun 2018 23:22:31 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson has been working with the first-team offense and ahead of rookie RB Rashaad Penny during minicamp. Carson earned praise from head coach Pete Carroll during OTAs as well.

Fantasy Tip: It's still too early to jump to any conclusions, but Carson continues to get rave reviews, and Seattle showed with the Matt Flynn-Russell Wilson situation years ago that they'll go with the best player regardless of investment. Keep an eye on Carson as we get into training camp and the preseason.

Seahawks | Chris Carson impressing

Thu, 07 Jun 2018 18:28:55 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson has "stood out" during OTAs, head coach Pete Carroll said Thursday, June 7.

Fantasy Tip: Carson should open the year as the backup to Rashaad Penny, putting him in RB4 territory for now. If Penny happens to struggle or suffers an injury, Carson could push into flex territory.

Seahawks | Chris Carson standing out

Thu, 07 Jun 2018 16:50:18 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson, who is now healthy from last season's ankle injury, has "stood out" during organized team activities, according to head coach Pete Carroll, from a physical conditioning standpoint. Carroll gushed how "he hasn't missed one snap of anything" and "he's just looked so fit and just so cut and quick and explosive and all of that."

Fantasy Tip: If Seattle's backfield situation wasn't so crowded, Carson would be looking like a legit RB2 entering summer fantasy drafts, but alas, the 2017 rookie will have heavy competition just to solidify a useful role within this offense. If he emerges with a set workload, Carson will be someone worth selecting.

Seahawks | Chris Carson bulking up

Fri, 01 Jun 2018 18:52:03 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson said he has added about 10 pounds and feels "a lot more solid" than he did last season.

Fantasy Tip: Carson looked like the frontrunner to start in 2018 after flashing some potential last year, but Seattle then spent a first-round pick on Rashaad Penny. Carson looks like a RB4 at this point but is worth stashing in case Penny struggles.

Seahawks | Pete Carroll talks up Chris Carson

Fri, 25 May 2018 21:37:40 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (ankle) is in "extraordinary condition" following ankle surgery last year, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Fantasy Tip: Carson flashed some potential in four games last year before suffering the injury, but first-round pick Rashaad Penny will likely lead the backfield in 2018, dropping Carson into RB4 territory.

Seahawks | Chris Carson expected to take part in OTAs

Tue, 27 Mar 2018 10:04:02 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (leg) is "100 percent now" and should have no problem being ready to participate in OTAs, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Fantasy Tip: The Seahawks are likely to add a running back in the draft, if only to give themselves some more insurance at a position they have not had much luck with health-wise in recent years. Carson proved quite capable in four games as a rookie before a broken leg ended his season and should be considered the favorite to start in 2018 almost regardless of whom the Seahawks might add next month.

Seahawks | Chris Carson to be ready for camp

Thu, 08 Mar 2018 20:50:45 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (ankle, leg) is "on track" to be on the field at the beginning of training camp, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Fantasy Tip: A seventh-round draft pick last year, Carson actually wound up being the club's starting running back the first month of the season before breaking his leg and suffering ankle-ligament damage. He was pretty good, totaling 208 yards on his 49 rushing attempts, not to mention hauling in seven of eight targets for 59 yards through the air, but it remains to be seen how he is used in Seattle's running game for 2018. He could perhaps develop into a fine FLEX option.

Seahawks | Chris Carson running again

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 22:50:54 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (ankle, leg) has resumed running, according to head coach Pete Carroll, who hopes Carson can return to practice next week.

Fantasy Tip: Carroll acknowledged a Carson return could be optimistic, but if your RB situation is grim you can at least keep an eye on the rookie's status.
