FantasyPros
The Panthers allow the most points to fantasy running backs, Carson should see a ton of carries with backup RB Rashaad Penny out for the season.The Chargers are just 20th against fantasy running backs, Cook should see the ball a lot this week with the Minnesota passing game facing a tough Chargers pass rush and secondary.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
The recent knock to Chris Carson's fantasy value was the risk of losing snaps and touches to electric RB Rashaad Penny. After the unfortunate, season-ending injury to Penny on Sunday, Carson is back getting the full share of the backfield work in Seattle. This could not have come at a better time, with the fantasy playoffs here and Carson having a solid matchup against the Carolina Panthers. The Carolina run defense has been terrible all season long. They give up a league-high 5.3 yards per carry (tied with Jacksonville), and they have surrendered league-highs in rushing touchdowns (24) and first down percentage on rushes (28.5%). Over the past five weeks, the Panthers have surrendered the third-most fantasy points to RBs (30.0). Over these five games, they have allowed 5.96 yards per RB carry and have given up a league-high 10 touchdowns to the position. Coming off a loss and fighting for the top seed in the NFC, look for the Seahawks to establish the run and their offensive identity early. If there was ever a week to put your fantasy team's trust in Chris Carson, it's this one. 
Kevin Wheeler

Chris Carson has handled 23.3 touches per game and played over 80% of Seahawks snaps in 6-of-8 contests when Rashaad Penny either misses or is limited. Carolina ranks dead last in YPC and yards per game allowed & has given up the most explosive runs over the last 2 months. @RotoWorld
