What in the heck happened on Monday night? Hyde out-snapped Carson 41-25 and out-touched him 17-10. In totally unrelated news, Hyde totaled 29 total yards on his 17 touches. -_- Please stop this as soon as possible, Mr. Pete Carroll. Fortunately, Carson was hyper-efficient totaling 59 yards on his 10 touches, including a powerful touchdown run that 95 percent of running backs wouldn't have scored on. This timeshare is a real issue because the Giants have only faced 19.4 running back carries per game, which is the third-fewest in the league. Those carries have netted 4.23 yards per carry, which is slightly below the league average, so they're not a team who's going to allow heavy production on the ground. It is worth noting that a league-high 67 percent of carries inside the five-yard line have resulted as touchdowns against the Giants. If we can get Carson back as the primary pass-catching running back, it' would be a good thing because that's where the production stems from against the Giants. Running backs have been targeted a league-high 22.8 percent of the time against the Giants, and that's led to 12.7 PPR points per game through the air alone, which ranks as the third-highest mark in football. There have been 11 running backs who've caught at least three passes, while seven of them have racked up 35-plus receiving yards. I'm willing to write-off last week's game as them easing Carson back into the lineup, because he's clearly the better running back. You should feel pretty confident playing him as a solid RB2 in this game. Hyde should still have a role but knowing that the Giants have faced just 25.4 running back touches per game, it's tough to see two starter-worthy options out of this backfield. Hyde should be in the high-end RB4 range in case last week wasn't just a fluke.

FantasyPros
Carson was the 18th ranked fantasy back last week coming off injury and he should be a RB1 this week against a Giants D that is 20th against fantasy backs. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Carson was significantly out-touched by Carlos Hyde last week, but the Seahawks could have been just easing Carson back into the lineup after his extended absence. It's a reason to be concerned moving forward, but it's not enough to significantly downgrade the talented RB. Carson should be viewed as a mid-range RB2 in this matchup.
