Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Carson's usage has been hard to predict week in and week out, but his production hasn't wavered. He's consistently finding the end zone and he's the unquestioned starter in one of the league's most dynamic offenses. Fire him up with confidence this week as a low-end RB1 with upside.Drake looked different running the ball last week and it finally led to the production that we had all been waiting and hoping for from him. It's impossible to say that Drake should be back to being viewed as a potential top-10 option at the RB position like he was in draft season, but the arrow is certainly pointing up. Drake can be plugged into your lineup as a mid-range RB2 in this matchup against the Seahawks that promises to see points go up on the board.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Despite the concerns about Carson coming into the season, he's silenced all the doubters while posting the fifth-most running back points heading into his bye week. That's pretty remarkable considering he's touched the ball just 16.4 times per game. His weighted opportunity per game ranks 17th among running backs, so his efficiency has helped carry him to where he is. Will it continue against the Cardinals? They have allowed a massive 1.78 PPR points per target to running backs, which ranks as the third-most in the league to this point. They've allowed the fourth-most yards per target (6.68) and the second-most receiving touchdowns (3), which bodes well for Carson's role as the primary pass-catching back who's received 23 of the 32 targets available to Seahawks running backs. We can't overlook the 4.35 yards per carry they've allowed, either. In the full game Carson played against this same scheme last year, he totaled 104 yards on 22 carries, added another four catches for 41 yards, but didn't find the end zone. Among fantasy points scored by running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends, 36.2 percent of it has gone to running backs, which is the 10th-highest mark in the league. Carson might be leaned on more than some think in this divisional showdown, and he should be started as a low-end RB1 this week in what oddsmakers are projecting to be a high-scoring affair where the Seahawks have a 30-point team-implied total.The reaction when Drake went off for 164 yards and two touchdowns against the Cowboys on Monday night was probably something like -_- if my reaction was anything like yours. He's received 18-plus touches in 5-of-6 games and hasn't had fewer than 13 carries in any game. Still, he's barely being used in the passing game and has weighted opportunity similar to someone like Devin Singletary or Jonathan Taylor. That's not great heading into this matchup. Against the Seahawks, wide receivers have outscored running backs by a massive 38.2 PPR points per game. There is no other team in the league who has a gap of more than 23.1 points. So, it should come as no surprise to hear that of the 90.88 fantasy points per game the Seahawks have allowed to skill-position players, a league-low 23.9 percent of that has gone to running backs. Part of the reason that's happened is due to teams being forced to go pass-heavy against them. Their opponents have called a run play on just 34.4 percent of plays, which is the second-lowest number in the league. Even through the air, the Seahawks haven't allowed a lot of production or efficiency, as the 3.88 yards and 1.10 PPR points per target both rank as the lowest marks in the league. Just one running back was able to rush for more than 65 yards against them this year, and that was a game that was played in the rain against the run-heavy Vikings. Bottom line is that Drake's role is on the ground, where the Seahawks have allowed just 55.8 fantasy points through five games, which ranks as the eighth-fewest in the league. Keep in mind that's while their opponents have averaged a ridiculous 75.6 offensive plays per game. Drake is in the low-end RB2 conversation because of his guaranteed touches, but this is not a week to get excited about him. As for Edmonds, he had a very small role last week while Drake looked good. Edmonds is valuable if the Cardinals fall behind, which is well within the realm of possibilities, but we've already talked about the Seahawks being the best defense in the league at defending pass-catching running backs, making him a low-upside, low-end RB3.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Cardinals are just 21st against fantasy running backs, Carson should be a low-end RB1 coming off his bye week.The Seahawks are 11th against fantasy running backs, Drake had a breakout game last week, but he is still more RB2 than RB1 at home this week.
