 R. Penny apologists need to understand that Carson is exactly the kind of between the tackles, chain-moving workhorse that SEA wants to hitch its wagon to - and now it wants to use him more in the passing game too

- 4 straight 1,000 yard seasons. - 4 straight seasons playing all 16 games. - 5,147 yards and 32 touchdowns.SEA RBs scored 352 FP (Std), 385 (half-PPR), 418 (PPR) last year. If Carson sees 67% = 236 (RB6 last year), 258 (RB6), 280 (RB6) If he sees 60% = 211 (RB8), 231 (RB9), 251 (RB9) 55% = 194 (RB11), 212 (RB12), 230 (RB12) Last year he scored 53%, 51% and 49% respectively. @4for4_John

Cooks is one of the best deep-ball threats in the NFL, but he is similar to Cooper in that he is a little hit or miss in a run-heavy offensive scheme.The big concern for Carson is going to be 2018 first round pick Rashaad Penny's role in the offense. The Seattle offense runs the ball enough to support two running backs, but Carson is hardly a guarantee to keep the bell cow role for the entire 2019 season.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Only six RBs had more rushes than Carson last season - behind Zeke, Barkley, DJ, Gurley, AP, and Jordan Howard (Very unlikely a lot of those guys make that list this year). In Seattle, Carson only received 55% of the team's carries. In comparison, Penny and Davis saw 19% and 26% last year. With Davis gone and not a real third option, why are we assuming Penny is going to take all of Davis' work? Or that He'll take Carson's job? If this becomes a 60-65/35-40 split, Carson will see MORE work than he saw last year. He's a steal at his ADP.
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
 Assuming he's healthy going into Week 1, I had to bump him up a few spots. He could easily be a top-10 RB if he plays 14-16 games.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Cooks has now been a top 13 fantasy receiver in four straight seasons so if you are suddenly expecting that to change, you might be disappointed. He will have to split the target share with Woods and Kupp, of course, but Cooks has managed to produce these big numbers despite averaging just 119 targets per season in that time.Carson is the ultimate boom or bust running back this season. Seattle may very well lead the league in carries again this season and Carson is about as efficient as they come. The concern, however, is that his knee will allow Penny to pass him on the depth chart. If that happens, Carson will still be a solid flex play, but if Carson holds onto the starting job, don't be shocked if he finishes top 10 or perhaps even higher this year.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Most wouldn't believe it, but 2018 was Cooks' most consistent season from a fantasy standpoint. That's impressive considering it was his first year in the offense, while the other receivers had more experience. He finished as a WR2 or better in 53.3 percent of his games, which ranked 14th among wide receivers. With Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods getting theirs, it'll be hard for Cooks to get into elite territory, but knowing he was this consistent should give drafters confidence in taking him as a high-end WR2There are a lot of reasons to like Carson. Looking at how he finished the season, it's hard not to. From Week 12 on, he finished as the No. 4 fantasy running back behind only Christian McCaffrey, Derrick Henry, and Saquon Barkley. While Rashaad Penny is still there (and a former first-round pick), Mike Davis exited town, leaving behind plenty of touches for Penny. While Carson may not have the upside of others who are used in the pass-game consistently, he should be a solid RB2 provided he's healthy. This, of course, is a concern after hearing Carson "had a little work done" on his knee this offseason, so stay tuned for updates

Fantasy Football Advice
I absolutely love Cook's 4th round ADP. This is guy who's posted four consecutive 1,100 yard seasons, even after playing with 3 different QB's! In fact, there have been just 5 players with at least 5,000 receiving yards and 30+ TD's before their age 26 season. Their names are Randy Moss, Larry Fitz, DeAndre Hopkins, Mike Evans, and Brandin Cooks (Pat Thorman). We know for a fact that Cooks is going to have a massive role on an elite offense, and that's not even considering that Kupp won't be 100% to start the seasons. He's and elite WR, with an elite opportunity share, on an elite offense. Cooks is a lock in the 4th round. He should absolutely be going in the early third in all formats.Chris Carson put together an excellent second season last year, posting a 247/1151/9 stat line and finishing as the RB 15 in half ppr scoring. Had he played a full 16 weeks then he likely would have finished as a RB 1. This season I do expect him to get less carries. The Seahawks used a first round pick on Penny, and they're going to use him. He was better than people think last season, and teams love to be right with their early round picks. That by no means makes Carson a bad pick. The Seattle is going to run the ball a ton, so he can still pay off his ADP even if Penny gets a lot of work. I just prefer waiting and grabbing Penny later in drafts if I'm targeting this backfield.
