Ignore the offseason hype you're hearing about Carson, because if the Seahawks really believed it, they wouldn't have drafted a running back in the first-round when they have so many other holes to fill. Carson looked good for a short time last year, but he's only going to have a role if something happens to Rashaad Penny.

Chris Carson has been most impressive RB this summer

Brady Henderson of ESPN's NFL Nation said that second-year running back Chris Carson "has been the most impressive of any running back this summer, and general manager John Schneider has said that at times Carson looks like the best player on the field." Carson added 10 pounds of muscle and also impressed head coach Pete Carroll, who mention Carson when asked about which players appeared to report to OTAs in the best shape.

Fantasy Impact

Carson looked like Seattle's best running back last season before ending up on IR after a Week 4 ankle injury. By spending a first-round draft pick on Rashaad Penny, the club obviously envisions Penny as a potential three-down workhorse, but Carson can certainly earn a change-of-pace role if he continues to impress in training camp. Carson might be worth a late-round look in fantasy drafts this summer.
