Huddle Up: The Seahawks are likely to add a running back in the draft, if only to give themselves some more insurance at a position they have not had much luck with health-wise in recent years. Carson proved quite capable in four games as a rookie before a broken leg ended his season and should be considered the favorite to start in 2018 almost regardless of whom the Seahawks might add next month.

Huddle Up: A seventh-round draft pick last year, Carson actually wound up being the club's starting running back the first month of the season before breaking his leg and suffering ankle-ligament damage. He was pretty good, totaling 208 yards on his 49 rushing attempts, not to mention hauling in seven of eight targets for 59 yards through the air, but it remains to be seen how he is used in Seattle's running game for 2018. He could perhaps develop into a fine FLEX option.

Huddle Up: Carroll acknowledged a Carson return could be optimistic, but if your RB situation is grim you can at least keep an eye on the rookie's status.

Huddle Up: Carson was expected to practice soon but could not miss the rest of the season because of the setback. Owners in all leagues can pass on Carson this season, but he will have value next season if he receives the starting job.

Huddle Up: It appears that Carson has a chance to play again this season but may be back until the playoffs. Carson may not be a valuable fantasy option for the rest of this season but could be an option next season depending on his role.

Huddle Up: The translation is Carson isn't coming back this season to help fantasy owners, but a return for the playoffs is well within reason if the always optimistic Carroll isn't pulling our chain. Mike Davis seems to have temporarily stopped the revolving door at running back that has existed Carson's injury, but Carson should have no trouble taking back the starting job when he is healthy enough to do so and should be considered a low-end RB2 in fantasy when that occurs.

Huddle Up: Carroll typically sees sunshine when most see clouds when it comes to injuries, so owners should be highly skeptical of this report. Carson reportedly suffered a fractured leg in addition to a high-ankle sprain, so it is highly possible he may not even be able to play in the postseason. However, if positive reports continued to come out of Seattle regarding his status, he was performing like a RB2 before getting hurt and the only Seahawk running back to experience any kind of success this season.

Huddle Up: It's obviously the first of many steps for Carson to return sometime this season, although that is far from a guarantee - if not very unlikely - given how the complexity of his injuries. However, it is a positive he has already taken the first step. With that said, Carson can be dropped in all redraft leagues that don't have an IR spot.

Huddle Up: Carson will be sidelined for at least eight weeks, so he will not be return until December at the earliest. Owners probably can drop Carson if they need to add another running back. Thomas Rawls is expected to take over the starting running back job and could be a flex option.

Huddle Up: It appears Thomas Rawls is the favorite to take over the starting job, but Eddie Lacy and C.J. Prosise will also receive playing time. Rawls has had success as the starting running back and could be a flex option for owners if he receives a majority of the carries. Prosise probably will be involved in the passing game and will be valuable in point-per-reception leagues.

Huddle Up: The most likely outcome has Carson landing on the Reserve/Injured list shortly, with the only thing to be determined is whether he can recover quickly enough to return before the end of the regular season, which seems unlikely. Carson can be dropped in all leagues without an IR spot. Thomas Rawls is expected to get the first crack at the starting job again, although Eddie Lacy will likely rotate in, making it a bit of a weekly headache fantasy owners if they choose to add one of them off waivers this week.

Huddle Up: Another one bites the dust, and the team will have to turn to Eddie Lacy or rookie J.D. McKissic. Thomas Rawls (ankle) could re-enter the fold depending on his health. The situation is a mess, and none of them are pegged higher than a bye-week filler for now.

Huddle Up: Carson was being tackled, had his leg pinned under him awkwardly before being bent back. It certainly looked awful on the telecast, and he was down for several minutes before having his leg immobilized in an air cast and then he was carted off. More info when we know it. Eddie Lacy and J.D. McKissic will see more totes in his stead.

Huddle Up: While Carson wasn't efficient running the ball, he did lead the backfield in carries once again and salvaged his stat line with a receiving score. He still looks like the lead back for the Seahawks and has RB2 potential against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 4.
Posted: 9/17/2017 8:29pm ET
Huddle Up: Carson was given a chance to lead the backfield, and he performed well. If he is still available in your league, he should be one of the top waiver targets heading into Week 3.

Huddle Up: Carson carried over his impressive preseason into the season opener against the Green Bay Packers, leading the team in snaps (26) and averaging 6.5 yards per carry while Eddie Lacy was held to three yards on five attempts and Prosise was limited to 11 yards on four carries. Starter Thomas Rawls is expected back this week, but his injury history makes Carson a strong hold or add in all leagues. Even with Rawls healthy, Carson may be on the verge of splitting carries with him.
Posted: 9/10/2017 8:44pm ET
Huddle Up: Carson was by far the most effective of Seattle's backs, building on a strong preseason. He likely earned some more touches going forward, and Carson is worth stashing in case he emerges as the feature back down the road.
Posted: 8/25/2017 8:25pm ET
Huddle Up: Carson has impressed throughout the preseason, but he is part of a crowded backfield. That being said, Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise are nursing injuries and Eddie Lacy is far from the picture of health. Carson is at least worth keeping in mind heading into the season, and he could be worth a gamble as a late-round lottery ticket.
