Chris Carson totals 59 yards in Week 6

Chris Carson rushed 14 times for 59 scoreless yards as the Seahawks beat the Raiders 27-3 in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact

Carson had a touchdown called back early in the game, and never got a score despite Seattle consistently finding themselves in the red zone. Russell Wilson was the star today instead. Both Mike Davis and Rashaad Penny were also involved today, but Carson remains the lead back in this RBBC. He’ll be a high end flex option when the Seahawks return from their Week 8 bye.

Chris Carson totals 127 yards in Week 5

Chris Carson ran 19 times for 116 yards and caught one pass for 11 yards in Seattle’s Week 5 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Impact

One week after being a surprise inactive, Carson played a big role in Seattle’s gameplan today. Mike Davis was involved today, but Carson was the focal point of the rushing attack. He should be treated as a RB3/flex for Week 6 versus the Raiders.

Chris Carson will play in Week 5

Pete Carrol confirmed that Chris Carson will be on the field for Sunday's matchup against the Rams.

Fantasy Impact

After missing a week with a hip injury, Carson will make his return against a tough Rams defense. The issue of how the touches will be split up though, remains a problem for the Seattle backfield. Carson is a low-floor play in Week 5 and owners shouldn't be suprised if doesn't produce.

Chris Carson returns to practice

Chris Carson returned to practice Thursday in a limited capacity. He's dealing with a hip injury.

Fantasy Impact

Carson was a surprise inactive over the weekend, so while it is a good sign that he's returning to practice his status remains murky. The same can be said about the Seahawks' backfield. Carson could return and see a heavy workload like he did Week 3, he could be inactive with Mike Davis again seeing a heavy workload, or somewhere in between. As such, Carson isn't a great option this weekend with the Seahawks home underdogs against the Rams. Making matters worse, the game is at 4:25 pm, meaning we might not know his official status until after the early slate kicks off.

Chris Carson (hip) misses Wednesday practice

Chris Carson did not practice on Wednesday with a hip injury.

Fantasy Impact

Carson was a surprise inactive in Week 4, and a DNP on Wednesday isn't what fantasy owners wanted to see. Just as it seemed Carson was taking control of the Seattle backfield he's been bit by the injury bug. Perhaps it was due to seeing 34 touches in Week 3. Either way it doesn't look like he'll be a reliable fantasy option on Sunday versus the Rams.
