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
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 CarsonNo Rams RB averaged over 3.8 a carry. Despite all the Gurley concerns, he still had 250 touches on the year. If they fix the line, he could be somewhat of a value.
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.The Rams offense was in complete disarray last year, as their offensive line started to crumble, which dragged Gurley's efficiency down the drain. He did show that he's still able to handle a big workload down the stretch, finishing with 98 touches over the final five games. Now going to the Falcons, who have one of the better offensive lines in football, with little competition, Gurley could return to RB1 status. It's a high-scoring offense where the running backs have averaged 1,383 yards and 9.7 touchdowns on the ground, while averaging another 572 yards and 4.7 touchdowns through the air over the last three years. With Ito Smith and Brian Hill the only running backs behind him, Gurley should receive most of the work/production.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 Atlanta is a great landing spot for Todd Gurley--he should walk right into the 17.4 touches/game that Devonta vacated. Still a 4th rounder with durability concerns. Initial Gurley projection with Atlanta is 235 carries, 965 rushing yards, 8 rushing TD, 61 targets, 340 receiving yards, 2 receiving TD.
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.Gurley will have a new lease on life in Atlanta and he did have 14 touchdowns last year, but he also averaged only 3.8 yards per carry, had very few big plays, and his arthritic condition in his knee makes him a dicey flex option.
