There are a lot of reasons to like Carson. Looking at how he finished the season, it's hard not to. From Week 12 on, he finished as the No. 4 fantasy running back behind only Christian McCaffrey, Derrick Henry, and Saquon Barkley. While Rashaad Penny is still there (and a former first-round pick), Mike Davis exited town, leaving behind plenty of touches for Penny. While Carson may not have the upside of others who are used in the pass-game consistently, he should be a solid RB2 provided he's healthy. This, of course, is a concern after hearing Carson "had a little work done" on his knee this offseason, so stay tuned for updates.

Chris Carson shut down by Dallas

Seahawks RB Chris Carson rushed 13 times for 20 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for negative yardage in Saturday night's Wild Card loss to Dallas.

Fantasy Impact

Carson had a terrific regular season but came up short in the playoffs. Despite rushing for at least 90 yards and a touchdown in each of his past four games and for at least 100 and a score in each of his past three, he only managed 20 yards against Dallas. Carson will look to return as Seattle's RB1 in 2019 even with the presence of Rashaad Penny, who could be in line for a greater role in his own right. Sprinkling in Mike Davis as well, the Seahawks backfield could once again lead the NFL in rushing next season.
