It's true, Carson has yet to play a 16-game season in his NFL career. While he does have the new contract to his name, there's still absolutely the concern that Carson is going to miss time yet again with an injury. His running style is one of the reasons why he's so successful in the NFL, but it's also a main reason why he fails to remain healthy each season. As long as Carson is healthy and on the field though, he's going to be an incredibly reliable option for fantasy football. In this explosive offense, Carson's going to have plenty of scoring opportunities and volume. As a RB2 on your roster, you can afford to live with Carson's injury concerns, while also enjoying his high-level production when he's active.We got a taste of what Burrow can do for fantasy football in 2020 before his devastating knee injury. While I believe that he's going to come back strong this season, he might get off to a slow start based off the reports coming out of training camp. He'll need to learn to trust his knee again to get back to form and that might take some time, unfortunately. With that in mind, it's probably best to view Burrow as a high-end QB2 in 1QB formats versus someone that you should draft and feel confident starting as your QB in week one. He's a fine target to stash as your second QB if you go that route, but otherwise there's a strong possibility that you'll be able to pick Burrow up off of waivers by week two or three if he does get off to the slow start that many are predicting.

On a per game basis, he's finished no worse than RB13 in any of the past three seasons, and there's really no threat to his workload in the SEA backfield

Carson is a such a physically gifted runner. He hits the hole at 100 miles an hour. He runs violently and is tough to bring down. Because of that and the Seahawks less than stellar offensive line, he absorbs a lot of punishment. The extra week the NFL added gives me pause if Carson can make it through the season. If Seattle had a better o-line and schedule I'd rank him higher. He gets to play Rams all-pro DT Aaron Donald twice a year- ugh! Carson is solid, however, the situation isn't the best.The Bengals drafted Burrow's old college teammate, WR JaMarr Chase which should help the offense. The concern- can the Bengals offensive line protect him? Cincy also plays a brutal schedule. Baltimore, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh all have tough defenses and they play each of them twice! I really like Burrow's future, but I'd temper expectations for 2021.

 He might say he's ready to go week 1, but there's no way he's mobile enough to protect himself.

Despite playing in just 12 games last season, Carson tied his career high with 37 receptions. As long as his involvement in the passing game remains healthy, Carson should have no problem posting mid-range RB2 numbers with top-12 upside. From 2018-19, Carson averaged nearly 1,200 rushing yards and 9 total touchdowns per season.

Returns to SEA where he's been the RB13 and RB14 in PPG the past two seasons. Was the RB7 from Weeks 1-9 amidst SEA's offensive explosion. Could easily regain this ceiling in Shane Waldrons Rams-inspired zone attack8/17 Update: Slightly concerned that Burrow has looked rough all camp & unwilling to push past 10 yards. This whole offense could stink with awful protection if Burrow can't round into form sooner than later

Carson is a risky pick this year who comes with a big reward. He's the favorite to lead this backfield on Seattle's run-heavy offense. However, we've seen Carson struggle with injuries in the past which is quite concerning combined with the return of Rashaad Penny and DeeJay Dallas still hanging around. Carson could be a workhorse RB1 but also could be out for half the year or in a committee - look to take him in the mid-to-late 3rd round of your drafts as a solid RB2.

 With Joe Burrow under center, the Cincinnati Bengals passed 4% over their expected pass rate in 2020 and should be trending that way in 2021. The rushing floor for Burrow may come later on in the year but with sheer passing volume, a bad defense, and the team drafting of Ja'Marr Chase in the early first round this past April, the Bengals have made it clear to everybody what they plan to do in 2021 and the avenue they're taking to do it. I have a feeling there are going to be one big question asked by fantasy managers in November: "How did we miss on Joe Burrow this season?"

Throughout Carson's career, he's produced RB2 or better numbers in 60 percent of his games. That's just a smidge behind Marshawn Lynch's number of 61.7 percent, which goes to show just how undervalued Carson has been to this point. Injuries have been a question, which should lower his ADP a bit, but when on the field, Carson is a borderline RB1 who the Seahawks signed to a fresh new deal this offseason.When Burrow went down with a torn ACL last year, he was sitting as the QB16 in the fantasy rankings, just behind Jared Goff and Teddy Bridgewater. That's not exactly living up to expectations. He is apparently on track to be back in the lineup for Week 1, but his mobility might be limited, especially to start the year, which will put a damper on his fantasy upside. The good news is that the Bengals improved the offensive line this offseason, as well as drafting Ja'Marr Chase at No. 5 overall based on Burrow's recommendation. He now has one of the best trio of wide receivers in the game, paired with a rebuilding defense, which should be the recipe for plenty of pass attempts. But again, dial back expectations because of his mobility. Burrow is best-served as a high-end QB2 in fantasy this year.

Carson was a reliable fantasy player with 169.9 fantasy points in 12 games. He resigned to a two-year deal and he should be the lead back in their offense, making him a RB2 to upside flex option.Burrow was the 16th ranked quarterback after Week 11 and he should be in the QB2 mix provided he is cleared to play in Week 1. All signs point to him being ready at this point in the offseason.

 Joe Burrow finished 19th out of 42 quarterbacks in Pro Football Focus' passing grade last season. But it's no secret that he was under siege most of the time, and it's notable that Burrow rated out far better when it comes to intermediate throws, which are a stickier stat on a year-to-year basis, and thus a better indicator of true talent. Burrow finished fifth according to this metric and his overall grade was ultimately doomed by a weak 20.8% deep-ball completion rate. Again, perhaps the offensive line is the primary reason for this. Questions remain about how much of an effort the Bengals made to improve that unit this offseason, but there are at least reasons to think it'll be better, even if it isn't exactly all that strong. Cincinnati has enough weapons and should play at a fast enough pace to make Burrow an exciting late-round QB in '21 fantasy drafts.

Although Chris Carson appeared in just 12 games, he actually had a breakout season in many ways. He improved his status in the Seattle passing game, matched his 9 TDs from '20 in 4 fewer games and improved his YPC. Carson returned to the Seahawks in free agency and his role in the offense is pretty clear. As your RB2, you could do far worse than Carson.Before the ACL tear, Joe Burrow looked very much like an emerging star at QB for the Bengals. He was on pace for 4.3K yards and around 25 combined TDs. In the good news department, the Bengals drafted his favorite target Ja'Marr Chase from LSU to add to an already strong WR group, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd. They did pick up two offensive linemen, Jackson Carman and D'Ante Smith, as well. They had both better perform because Burrow was sacked 31 times in 10 weeks (2nd most sacks taken by a QB in '20). But the best news, besides the fact Joe Burrow is medically on track for the start of the season, is that the Bengals defense is still going to be deficient in 2021. That means Joe Burrow will constantly be looking to put up points, and that's fantasy gold. He threw for 300 yards in 5 of his ten games last season and should be well over 4K yards in 2021. The one caveat here is that although Burrow was sneaky mobile in college, you may see a more conservative approach for him post major knee surgery. Burrow is a top 10 dynasty QB, and in 2021, he should be considered a low-endQB1. Just know, there will be some highs and lows in that game log.

 The addition of Ja'Marr Chase has many fantasy football players excited for the prospect of Joe Burrow reconnecting with his LSU mate and what that might mean for fantasy production. Let's not forget, however, that Burrow is coming off of a major knee injury. In addition, the offensive line is trash and the Bengals are counting on past-prime veterans and rookies to fill the holes. Burrow struggled on long passes last year, finishing behind guys like Nick Foles, Gardener Minshew and Sam Darnold in big plays despite more attempts. His average time of 2.3 seconds in the pocket was 2nd to last (Big Ben) among QBs with at least 400 throws. If he doesn't get more time in the pocket, the year two bump you expect to see may need to wait.
