Lineups
I was down on Chris Carson earlier this offseason as I was worried about the presence of Rashaad Penny and Carlos Hyde. However, Penny is going to start the season on the PUP without a clear timetable and it's become clear throughout the offseason that this is still Carson's backfield to lose with Hyde serving as the backup. Assuming he isn't plagued by the same uncharacteristic fumbling issue from last season, Carson should be set for at least a 60-65% workload in one of the most run-heavy teams in the NFL.Denver clearly wants to establish the running game as more of a strength with the addition of Melvin Gordon, a top-ten fantasy back as recently as 2018. However, Philip Lindsay won't just go away as he's a very talented player and there are a lot of mouths to feed in this offense. Ultimately, Gordon's fantasy production will come down to a lot of factors he can't control and as much as I love the player, I don't love his current ADP.
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
Carson was off to a promising start as a rookie in '17 before breaking his leg in a Week 4 game against the Colts. He has bounced back with two straight seasons of more than 90 total yards per game. In '19, he took on a bigger role in Seattle's passing attack.Signed to a two-year, 16 million deal in March with 13.5 million guaranteed, Gordon is expected to be the leader of a Denver backfield committee that includes Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman. He's unlikely to reach 1,000 rushing yards in 2020.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
96.9 YPG over past 2 seasons ranks 8th-best among RBs in that span, and he's also chipped in 9 TDs in each campaign - expected to be fully recovered from hip injury by Week 1Your ranking may vary depending on how much you think P. Lindsay will eat into Gordon's workload, the money is on the former Charger seizing a sizable advantage
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
Received a huge vote of confidence with the Seahawks surprisingly avoiding any major backfield moves in FA or the Draft. His fractured hip could hamper him all offseason and potentially to begin 2020 though, but the team likely would've made more RB moves if they were truly worried. If healthy.. no one was more consistent in 2019, with nearly 90% of Carson's active games finishing as a RB1 or RB2.*Update* Gordon has tumbled down my big board since the start of training camp. Out of shape? Outplayed by Lindsey? Injured? Promised timesplit now? No, thanks.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
The Seahawks running back room remains a nightmare for fantasy. There's clearly enormous upside available but it's an annual mess of the fumble master Chris Carson, injury prone Rashaad Penny and now the fun sponge Carlos Hyde. The common fantasy wisdom in these situations is to take the cheapest option but Rashaad Penny looks likely to start the season on IR and Carlos Hyde clearly isn't taking the starting role so it's really Carson that's the only valid option. If Carson gets the volume he enjoyed for most of 2019, he's a non-PPR monster with 20+ carries and 100+ yards most weeks. He's even starting to improve in the receiving game and has legitimate upside as a true workhorse in this elite Seahawks offense. If only the risk wasn't there. I'm taking him late in the 2nd round as a high upside option to pair with a veteran like Leveon Bell or Todd Gurley in the 3rd or 4th.Melvin Gordon to the Broncos is not as bad as most think. Gordon was clearly losing his role to Austin Ekeler and he now moves to an impressive run offense where he should be the clear lead guy. While Lindsay will clearly have a role, I expect Gordon to take the goal line carries, the 3rd down work and at least half of the between the tackles stuff making him the clear value in Denver. Given the Broncos backs combined for over 350 carries and 78 receptions, there's a lot of points to go around and Gordon should get the bulk of it. If Lindsay goes down there's always a chance he's a league winner too so the upside is there. Take a chance on him in the late 3rd round.
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.He left the Chargers at the right time, as they're going to be going through a transitional period. Instead, he joins a now-exciting Broncos offense that suddenly has tons of firepower. You don't add Gordon in free agency if you don't plan on using him as your lead back. The potential upside is that new offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur has been a one-back kind of guy, so it's possible that Phillip Lindsay is just there to give Gordon breathers when he needs them. With Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler, and Noah Fant out there are receiving threats, Gordon should see a lot of light fronts this year. He's a middling RB2 with RB1 upside if they decide to give him 15-plus touches per game.

Carson is a bit overlooked this season. Seattle remains committed to him and he should have another breezy RB2 season this year.Gordon's contract suggests workhorse duties, but don't forget about Phillip Lindsay. He has back to back 1k yard seasons (more than Gordon has in his career). His goal line work should give him a high season long floor, but MG3 may have more frustrating games than people think.

Every season we say he won't be the RB1 by end of season and here we are. Again, the Seahawks are run heavy and Carson is an integral piece of the offense. I love his value in fantasy drafts as he always falls to the right spot each season.Same face, new place. Reports out of camp are that he looks "scary." I am all in considering what Phillip Lindsay was able to do last season. A savvy vet like Gordon should make himself right at home in the Denver offense. I expect a continuation of the Gordon/Ekeler combo now presented as the Gordon/Lindsay combo. Vic Fangio is old school and will definitely be running heavy to help out his young quarterback.

With Penny likely headed to PUP to start the season this leaves the opportunity for Carson to be the workhorse again. In a solid offense and doesn't offer the receiving upside we are necessarily looking for, but at his price he's a value.Wasn't good since returning last year. Got signed to a $8 mil/year deal that should signal he is the bellcow for the Broncos. Hasn't been efficient as a runner in the NFL, but has more been a volume player. Lindsay and Freeman lurk and could leave Gordon as a leader in a committee rather than a workhorse.

The Seahawks backfield is never an easy one to figure out but over the last two seasons, Carson has proven to be the superior back to Rashad Penny. While he will never get a full workload, I expect Carson to see the majority of the work, especially near the goal line.The Broncos backfield looks like it could be the trickiest one to figure out in all of football. They paid to bring in Gordon but still roster a young and highly-talented RB in Phillip Lindsay. I see this being a near 50/50 split which is never a good thing for fantasy owners.

Carson is a RB2 coming off a season with 1,496 yards from scrimmage and 9 touchdowns. The only downside was his 7 fumbles. Seattle could be a RBBC this year, but if Carson can hang onto the ball, he is a solid RB2.When Gordon is healthy, he is capable of 1,500 yards from scrimmage and double digit touchdowns. He should be the lead back in Denver, but it will be a very crowded RBBC.

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.Gordon's going to be splitting time with Phillip Lindsay this season, but Gordon should be the lead back in this offense. The Broncos are going to want to run the ball and Gordon should easily see over 210 carries this year. He's a solid RB2 option for your fantasy rosters.

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 Carson1 year to go off because Vic, and his OC Scangarello don't have much history at their current positions. Denver was an average ball running team in 2019. 409 attempts. The 100 RB targets were nice. Someone is going to disappear out of this offense. I think it's assumed to be Royce, I can believe that, but what roll do they plan on losing Lindsay in? Breather back? He can not pass block, Royce is the best on the team for that. So Lindsay now appears to lose out in every phase, one way or another to his teammates, might see less work than anticipated.
