It's true, Carson has yet to play a 16-game season in his NFL career. While he does have the new contract to his name, there's still absolutely the concern that Carson is going to miss time yet again with an injury. His running style is one of the reasons why he's so successful in the NFL, but it's also a main reason why he fails to remain healthy each season. As long as Carson is healthy and on the field though, he's going to be an incredibly reliable option for fantasy football. In this explosive offense, Carson's going to have plenty of scoring opportunities and volume. As a RB2 on your roster, you can afford to live with Carson's injury concerns, while also enjoying his high-level production when he's active.

Chris Carson returning to the Seahawks on a two-year deal

RB Chris Carson is signing a two-year, $14.625 million contract with the Seahawks. The deal includes $5.5 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Impact

Carson became an unrestricted free agent during the offseason, but ends up back in Seattle on a two-year deal. He led the Seahawks backfield over the last four seasons, rushing for 3,270 yards and 21 touchdowns across 45 games. The 26-year-old RB was limited to 12 games in 2020 due to a mid-foot sprain. Carson is expected to be the Seahawks featured back and is a surefire RB2 in upcoming 2021 drafts. He’s currently 21st among all running backs in the latest expert consensus draft rankings.
