Unrelenting physical style leads to quality Fantasy totals again

Starting at running back for the team leading the NFL in rushes has its perks. Carson has handled 68 carries in four games since returning from a hip injury. The accompanying 344 total yards and three touchdowns make him the RB10 during that stretch. The 49ers, who rank 12th against the run, were the only one of those four opponents to hold him out of the end zone. Yet he should again see a heavy workload as the considerable favorite, so play him with confidence as a top-shelf RB2.

The 49ers are 17th against fantasy running backs, Carson should be a RB2 on the road this week against an opponent that he shredded for 108 yards from scrimmage in Week 13.

YAC monster ranks 4th in that stat (3.45 YAC/Att) among RBs with at least 100 carries - 3rd-easiest ROS schedule at RB - (Weeks 15-16 = @SF, KC)

Carson is set-up to finish the fantasy season strong with matchups against the 49ers and Chiefs, who've both ranked in the bottom-half of the league against the run. The Chiefs come in the most important game, Week 16, and they're a team who's allowed 20 different running backs finish with at least 11.8 fantasy points against them.
