Carson is a bit of a question mark for 2020 at this point due to his recovery from a hip injury. While all signs point to him being ready to start week one, we need to be prepared to shift as new news comes out. Right now, drafting Carson at his current ADP is certainly risky.Taylor seeing 250 carries in 2020 isn't out of the realm of possibilities. If that happens, behind this offensive line, Taylor could easily finish as a top-15 RB this season.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 He finished his 3yr college career with over 6000 yards from scrimmage and had more 200 yard games than sub-100yd games. Taylor behind the Colts O-line is just going to be nuts.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Hip injury at end of 2019 not too serious - expected to be ready for Week 1, which makes his No. 21 RB ADP silly cheap (Top 15 RB each of past 2 seasons) 
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
The Seahawks signing Carlos Hyde likely has more to do with Penny's health (or lack thereof), but it still has me moving Carson down a couple of spots.It sounds like Marlon Mack isn't going away, and the coaches are talking up Hines. I'm still excited about Taylor, but I've moved him down slightly.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
Hip injury is definitely something to follow-> Actually didn't need surgery for it, is expected to make a full recovery. Meanwhile, there is talk of the PUP list for Rashaad Penny, and bring Marshawn Lynch back, all good news for Chris CarsonBarring a terrible landing spot, another rookie I love. Maybe a bit of a shock for now but all these rookies typically move up by draft day, I'm just saving you the sadness of watching your "value" pick creep up boards into August.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
If we knew Carson would be healthy the entire season, he'd be ranked as a top-12 running back. But we don't. There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the Seahawks backfield, as Carson is coming off a season-ending hip injury, while Rashaad Penny is recovering from a torn ACL, and they drafted DeeJay Dallas in the fourth round of the draft. You'll want to pay close attention to this backfield as we approach fantasy draft season.It's looking like a very good possibility for Taylor to see 250-plus carries in his rookie season. Some may think that's absurd, but Marlon Mack totaled 247 carries in just 14 games last year. Even if we give Mack the 100 carries that Jordan Wilkins and Jonathan Williams combined for last year, it'd leave room for Taylor to hit the 250 mark. He's also running behind the best offensive line in football, so it wouldn't be a shock to see him rush for 1,200 yards in year one with his vision and speed in the open field. Taylor is right in the same territory as someone like Nick Chubb.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Carson has two good things going for his fantasy value. First, his hip injury appears to not need surgery, which means he should be participating in off-season activities. Second, Rashaad Penny could be a candidate to start the season on the PUP list with a late-season ACL injury. Carson is a RB2 coming off a season with 1,496 yards from scrimmage and 9 touchdowns. The only downside this year was the emergence of Penny and 7 fumbles.Taylor ended up in a fantastic situation playing behind one of the best offensive lines in the league on a team that loves to run the football. Taylor should emerge as a RB2 with upside this week.
