Jacobs is a fantastic selection in Standard formats due to the fact that he's likely going to see 270 carries in 2020. Unfortunately, he does lose a little bit of value in PPR formats with the lack of targets going his direction, but he's still likely to finish in the top-12 due to the sheer volume of carries.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.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
No. 13 RB in FAN PPG as rookie, and expected bump in passing down work should vault him inside the Top 10 RBs in 2020 - led all RBs in Avoided Tackles rushingHip 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.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
IF Coach Gruden gets Jacobs more involved in the pass game, Jacobs will be a threat for top 5. Ricard and Washington combined for 84 targets, while each playing less than 30% of the snaps. Ricard has been resigned. Washington and his 41 targets are an UFA.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 Carson
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We've continually heard that Jacobs is going to be more heavily involved in the passing game, though that never materialized last year, seeing just 27 targets in 13 games played. Then we heard, "we're going to involve him more in 2020." They then re-signed Jalen Richard, added Henry Ruggs, and Lynn Bowden. It's not looking likely that Jacobs sees the 50-plus targets he deserves, which lowers him down the rankings. The overall offense should improve, giving him more scoring opportunities, but relying on touchdowns is a tricky thing. He's best-suited as a high-end RB2 who has RB1 upside if they follow through on the promise to use him more in the passing game.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.
Derek Lofland

Jacobs had a very good rookie season with 1,316 yards from scrimmage and 7 touchdowns. Jacobs should be a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 for the Raiders in 2020.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.
