At this point, Carson has to be considered superhuman, right? Carson is now considered a game-time decision against the 49ers after reportedly being out for 1-2 weeks. Sound familiar? Carson's a risky RB2 play, especially when you factor in the late afternoon game timing, but he's better than some of the other options in this range. We'll need to see if he practices Thursday or Friday, but this is a situation to keep monitoring.
