Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Carson did not seem to be punished for the fumbles at all, so play Seattle's lead back like you normally would. The Rams have been middle of the road against RBs over the past five weeks, and Carson put up a 100-yard performance against him the first time around. We know Seattle would love to run the ball and control the clock all game long, so Carson is a high-end RB2 with some upside this week. Hopefully he doesn't take himself out in order to let Penny score again. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Carson rushed 23 times for 102 yards and one touchdown, despite RB Rashaad Penny having 19 touches. Carson is still risky due to fumbling issues, but he is a RB2 against the Rams 11th ranked fantasy running back defense.Sutton does have a very weak QB situation, but he still has enough talent to be a WR2 on the road against Houston this week.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
So, as it turns out, Carson still retains the starting job, but Penny is much more involved. Carson totaled 24 touches against the Vikings that turned into 109 yards and a touchdown while Penny saw 19 touches that turned into 107 yards and a touchdown. There will not be 43 touches to go around every week. The good news is that there were 36 touches between them in the first meeting between these two teams. Carson totaled 123 yards and a touchdown in that game, while Penny finished with 51 total yards. The Rams have been the fifth-worst matchup for running backs from an efficiency standpoint, as they've allowed just 0.73 PPR points per opportunity. If we take away Christian McCaffrey's absurd performance in Week 1, they'd look even better. There's been just nine running backs all year who've finished better than the RB30 against the Rams, with eight of them totaling at least 15 carries. The Vikings were one of the best in the league against the run, so we surely aren't writing off these backs, but they both aren't going to finish as top-15 options again. Treat this as a 55/45 split until further notice, which makes Carson a low-end RB2 while Penny should be treated as a low-end RB3.He's playing like a miniature Calvin Johnson this year, and I don't throw that name around to just anyone. If you have the chance, go look up his targets on NFL Game Pass, YouTube, or something. He's getting it done with every quarterback who comes under center. He saw just five targets against the Chargers, which is the most concerning part, as it was just the second time all season he's seen less than seven targets. It was the first game with Lock under center, so hopefully it was just him checking down a bit more in a tough spot against the Chargers defense. The Texans secondary is not one to fear, though it's worth noting how they treated Julian Edelman for the first three quarters last week when they double-teamed him all over the field. That's the only concern for Sutton, though it's not enough to consider sitting him against a team that's allowed 12 top-24 performances to wide receivers. The Giants, Bucs, and Vikings are the only teams to allow more 15-plus point receivers. Sutton should be locked-in as a WR2 who may have some ups and downs due to quarterback play, but he's overcome them time-and-time again. Sutton is one of just three receivers (Michael Thomas, DeVante Parker) who've totaled at least 55 yards in 10-of-12 games.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
 No matter who's at quarterback, Sutton continues to produce. He only averages 4.5 receptions per game, but his 16.8 yards per reception ranks ninth in the NFL. Consider him a decent WR2 in a strong Week 14 matchup with the Texans.
