  • Posted: 12/14/2018 3:38pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 14, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Carson has rushed for three touchdowns in the last four games and should receive plenty of carries this week against San Francisco 49ers. Owners in most leagues should consider Carson a No. 2 running back.

  • Posted: 12/13/2018 5:36pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (non-injury) was a full participant at practice Thursday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Carson is a running back to deploy no matter what league you're in, as he'll be in a desirable situation on Sunday. The Seahawks pulverized the 49ers only two weeks ago, making it likely Carson will see another sizable workload against this division rival in Week 15.

  • Posted: 12/12/2018 5:12pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (non-injury) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 12.

    Huddle Up: This is being done to manage Carson's reps, which is understandable given how he's established himself as the undisputed lead dog in Seattle's backfield. As a result, Carson should be fired up in all formats every week.

  • Posted: 12/10/2018 8:37pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson posted 22 rushes for 90 yards and a touchdown in the Week 14 game against the Minnesota Vikings on Monday, Dec. 10.

    Huddle Up: Carson has registered a rushing touchdown in three of his past four games, although he hasn't reached triple digits in yardage since Oct. 28. He remains a decent low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 15 in San Francisco.

  • Posted: 12/8/2018 3:37pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (finger) participated fully in practice Saturday, Dec. 8.

    Huddle Up: Carson is good to go, but he's good to go against one of the better rush defenses in the NFL in the Minnesota Vikings. Start him if you're hard pressed and have guys like James Conner, Melvin Gordon or Matt Breida. He's in low-end RB2 territory all things considered.

  • Posted: 12/7/2018 4:49pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (finger) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Carson should continue to receive a majority of the work at running back this week against the Minnesota Vikings. He can be considered a low-end No. 2 running back or flex option in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/6/2018 7:37pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (finger) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 6.

    Huddle Up: Carson is firmly entrenched as the club's starting tailback, so hopefully this injury he sustained in Sunday's win doesn't cost him any action. As long as he's active, Carson makes for a solid RB2.

  • Posted: 12/4/2018 8:18am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (finger) dislocated an index finger that required stitches in Week 13, but head coach Pete Carroll said Carson isn't expected to miss time.

    Huddle Up: Carson has averaged 69 rushing yards and scored twice during the last three games. He doesn't have a good matchup against the Minnesota Vikings, but he's on the cusp of entering the low-end RB2 mix.

  • Posted: 12/2/2018 9:37pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson carried 13 times for 69 yards and added three receptions for 39 yards in Week 13 against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Carson left the game for good in the fourth quarter after suffering a dislocated finger, but head coach Pete Carroll told reporters after the game he "should be OK," making it likely he'll remain solidly in the RB2 conversation next week even in a difficult matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. Rashaad Penny was more involved this week and appears to be pushing to eventually split backfield work with Carson, however, so owners may not want to put too much faith into him during the fantasy playoffs.

  • Posted: 11/30/2018 3:44pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 30, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Carson has been the main option in the running game this season and has recorded three touchdowns in the last four games. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in standard leagues this week.

  • Posted: 11/29/2018 6:17pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (non-injury) was a full participant at practice Thursday, Nov. 29.

    Huddle Up: Carson has fully regained control of lead dog status in the Seattle backfield since returning to full health, so he needs to remain in all lineups. He has a nice matchup this weekend as well, in a game that Seattle should control handily the whole way.

  • Posted: 11/28/2018 5:16pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (non-injury) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 28.

    Huddle Up: Carson should be able to play in the Week 13 game, but owners can keep an eye on the situation during the week. He has recorded a touchdown in three of the last four games and has received at least 14 carries in six of the last seven games. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in all leagues this week.

  • Posted: 11/25/2018 1:22pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson rushed 16 times for 55 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 win against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Carson has scored in back-to-back games for the first time this season, and the fourth time overall. His yardage totals have been down over the past couple of games, but he has made up for it with touchdowns. He continues to be a solid RB2 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 13 against the San Francisco 49ers.

  • Posted: 11/15/2018 8:44pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson rushed 17 times for 83 yards and a touchdown and also lost a fumble in a 27-24 win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Carson returned from his hip injury and immediately resumed his role as the lead back for Seattle. Rashaad Penny is gaining a little momentum, but Carson should remain a RB2 in Seattle's run-heavy attack.

  • Posted: 11/14/2018 1:36pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 14, and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 11 game against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Carson will be facing the 18th-ranked rushing defense in the NFL, as the Seahawks yield 118.6 yards per game with seven rushing scores in nine contests. The Seahawks have also yielded eight runs of 20 or more yards. He is a solid low-end RB1 heading into Thursday's battle.

  • Posted: 11/12/2018 4:09pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) was limited during practice Monday, Nov. 12. The Seahawks did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: Carson was not able to play in Week 10 because of his injury and probably does not have a good chance to play this week. Mike Davis and Rashaad Penny split carries in the last game and had successful games against a solid defense. Both players could be flex option in leagues if Carson misses another game.

  • Posted: 11/12/2018 2:24pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) will be ready to go Thursday, Nov. 15, against the Green Bay Packers, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

    Huddle Up: Rashaad Penny and Mike Davis held down the fort quite well yesterday with Carson sidelined. Penny in particular may see more work going forward, but Carson should still be heavily involved in the running game.

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 8:22am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is not expected to play in the Week 10 game, but the team will not make a final decision until pregame warmups, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Carson will play or has been ruled out. Mike Davis likely would receive most of the work at running back if Carson is ruled out and can be a low-end No. 2 running back or flex option.

  • Posted: 11/9/2018 8:04pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is a 'little better' than he was to start the week, according to head coach Pete Carroll, but his status for Week 10 remains unclear.

    Huddle Up: If Carson is unable to play against the Los Angeles Rams, Mike Davis is expected to lead the backfield and will be a solid flex option for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 11/9/2018 3:06pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 9, and is listed as questionable for Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Carson will be able to play, but he sat out all three practices this week. He will be a risky No. 2 running back if he plays, but owners should have other options ready in case he is ruled out.

  • Posted: 11/9/2018 10:50am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) has yet to practice this week and will likely be a game-time decision for Week 10 against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Carson was a game-time decision last week as well with a hip injury and lasted all of 10 plays before exiting for the day. Assuming Seattle does the smart thing and doesn't try to push Carson, Mike Davis immediately enters the RB2 discussion. In two games in which the majority of snaps (Week 5 and Week 9), Davis has amassed 163 yards and two touchdowns on 36 carries and 68 yards on 11 catches.

  • Posted: 11/8/2018 5:11pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) was absent from practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 8.

    Huddle Up: This doesn't bode well for his chances of playing Sunday at Los Angeles, especially after he had to exit early last week. It looks like Carson is shaping up to be a game-time decision. If he can't suit up, Mike Davis would be the main back for the Seahawks.

  • Posted: 11/7/2018 6:01pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) was absent from practice Wednesday, Nov. 7.

    Huddle Up: No surprise after Carson had to depart early in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. It's possible his status won't be known until game time, so owners will need a backup plan with the late-afternoon kickoff. If Carson can't suit up, Mike Davis would be the biggest beneficiary and merits being plugged in everywhere.

  • Posted: 11/5/2018 5:11pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is considered day-to-day because of his hip injury.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor Carson's practice participation during the week to determine his status for Week 10. He has been playing well over the last few weeks but is a risky fantasy option because of the injury.

  • Posted: 11/4/2018 7:20pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) played sparingly in a 25-17 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 9 because of a lingering hip injury, finishing with eight carries for 40 yards.

    Huddle Up: If the injury ends up sidelining Carson completely, Mike Davis will have RB2 upside as the next man up in Seattle's run-heavy attack.

  • Posted: 11/3/2018 9:17pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) will be a game-time decision against the Los Chargers Chargers in Week 9, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Carson and the ground attack have been rolling in recent weeks, so he will have RB2 potential if he plays. Mike Davis would slide in with RB2 potential of his own if Carson sits.

  • Posted: 11/2/2018 3:46pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 2, and is listed as questionable for Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Owners should monitor the situation over the next few days to see if Carson is in any danger of missing the game. He has rushed for at least 100 yards in three of the last four games and can be a No. 2 running back if he plays.

  • Posted: 11/1/2018 5:29pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) appeared on the injury report Thursday, Nov. 1, logging a limited practice.

    Huddle Up: This is something new for the second-year tailback, though it doesn't figure to affect his RB2 status. Carson has dominated the touches out of the Seattle backfield, garnering a whopping 90 carries in the last four games. He's well ahead of Mike Davis on the totem pole at this point.

  • Posted: 10/28/2018 5:03pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson rushed 25 times for 105 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the Detroit Lions and he added 19 yards on two catches.

    Huddle Up: Carson has rolled up 100 or more rushing yards in three of the past four games to make his way into RB2 territory. He'll look to keep it going in Week 9 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 4:50pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson rushed 14 times for a game-high 59 yards in Week 6 against the Oakland Raiders in London.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't a very exciting offensive display in London, so fantasy owners have to be pretty happy with even a mediocre performance. Two west-coast teams playing in London at 1pm ET is not good for the internal clocks of the athletes. Carson and the Seahawks have a bye week in Week 7 before traveling to Detroit in Week 8.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 8:19pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson rushed 19 times for 116 yards in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Rams and he added one catch for 11 yards.

    Huddle Up: Carson has back-to-back 100-yard games, although he failed to make it into the end zone. He didn't seem to be bothered by the hip injury which hampered him going into the week. He has emerged as a solid RB2 in all fantasy leagues heading into the Week 6 game against the Raiders in London.

  • Posted: 10/5/2018 3:12pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 5, and is not on the injury report for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Carson will be able to play in Week 5, but he may have to share some playing time with Mike Davis. Carson played well in his last game but may only be a flex option this week because of the matchup.

  • Posted: 10/4/2018 4:52pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation because Carson could be a game-time decision for Week 5. Carson can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option if he plays but could also be benched if owners have better options.

  • Posted: 10/3/2018 5:16pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 3.

    Huddle Up: Carson probably will have to practice this week if he wants a chance to play in the Week 5 game. He has posted some decent numbers this season but would be a risky fantasy option because of the injury and the opponent.

  • Posted: 10/1/2018 10:04am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) should be able to play in Week 5 against Los Angeles Rams, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

    Huddle Up: Mike Davis starred in Carson's absence against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 4, so it remains to be seen if that will have any effect on the latter's playing time moving forward. The Rams usually tend to make teams beat them on the ground under defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, but they still represent a poor matchup for Carson and/or Davis. Consider Carson a weak RB2 play if he can go in Week 5.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 11:40am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is inactive for the team's Week 4 game against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, Sept. 30.

    Huddle Up: Despite late-week optimism, the Seahawks' lead back will be unable to go, leaving first-round pick Rashaad Penny as the next man up. Plug him in as a flex/low-end RB2 if needed.

  • Posted: 9/29/2018 4:32pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is expected to play in Week 4 despite being limited in practice all week, according to The Seattle Time's Bob Condotta.

    Huddle Up: Check on Carson's status before game time to make sure he's active. If he is then he's an RB2 candidate against an Arizona Cardinals defense that has yielded six total touchdowns to the position in three games.

  • Posted: 9/28/2018 3:49pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 28, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Carson has said he plans to play this week, but head coach Pete Carroll called him a game-time decision. Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if he will be available to play. He can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in standard leagues if he plays.

  • Posted: 9/28/2018 2:35pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) will be a game-time decision for the Week 4 game, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Carson has said he plans to play this week.

    Huddle Up: Owners probably will need to check the inactive list to see if Carson will be able to play. He is coming off a solid Week 3 performance and could be a No. 2 running back in standard leagues if he plays.

  • Posted: 9/27/2018 5:04pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: Carson probably will be able to play in the Week 4 game despite the injury but will see less touches than he saw in Week 3. Owners can consider Carson as a No. 2 running back or flex option this week.

  • Posted: 9/26/2018 5:08pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 26.

    Huddle Up: Carson is coming off a terrific Week 3 performance but probably will not receive 32 carries in Week 4 like he did last week. He can still be a No. 2 running back or flex option in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 11:50pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson carried the ball 32 times for 102 yards and a touchdown against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, Sept. 23. Carson added a pair of receptions for 22 yards.

    Huddle Up: After logging just six touches due to "fatigue" in Week 2, Carson looked fresh and ready to go against Dallas, burying rookie first-rounder Rashaad Penny in the process. While Carson isn't the most reliable of options at the moment he does hold RB3 value.

  • Posted: 9/18/2018 6:35pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson was listed atop the team's Week 3 depth chart Tuesday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: This is notable is because Carson was "gassed" - according to head coach Pete Carroll - from playing special teams and did see a single touch in the second half during the team's Week 2 loss to the Chicago Bears. Carroll sang the praises of Carson all spring and summer, but his playing time isn't reflecting it. The 2017 seventh-round pick has averaged 5.8 yards per carry so far versus Rashaad Penny's 2.2, yet the latter has more carries than the former (17-13), leaving him as an RB3/flex until something changes.

  • Posted: 9/17/2018 9:43pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson's touches on offense in Week 2 against the Chicago Bears were limited because he was 'gassed' after also playing special teams, head coach Pete Carroll said Monday, Sept. 17.

    Huddle Up: If you were wondering why Rashaad Penny led the running backs in touches, and not Carson, it's because of his work on special teams, too. He also added the team wanted to see more of Penny. Fantasy owners of Carson cannot be terribly pleased he is doubling on special teams, as there is nothing to gain from a fantasy perspective in that capacity. The backfield picture is rather muddled heading into Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Posted: 9/17/2018 8:32pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson carried six times for 24 yards in Week 2 against the Chicago Bears on Monday, Sept. 17 and he had no catches on just one target.

    Huddle Up: Carson was second among the tailbacks in touches, as Rashaad Penny led the way with 10 total touches. The Twittersphere was losing its mind, as people were questioning if Carson was injured. There was no reported injury, as head coach Pete Carroll just elected to try Penny more. Right now, Carson is looking like nothing more than a low-end RB4 heading into Week 3 against Dallas.

  • Posted: 9/11/2018 3:39pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson 'really took the lead' ahead of fellow RB Rashaad Penny in Week 1, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Carroll added that Penny 'looked a little rusty' but that they'll find ways to keep using him.

    Huddle Up: It was Penny's first professional football game, so let's cut him a little slack. Carson's value continues to rise, though, as he enters the realm of RB2s. Penny is a flex consideration until he starts eating into Carson's workload more.

  • Posted: 9/10/2018 10:32am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny each saw 44 percent of the team's snaps and ran 12 routes in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos. Penny finished with one more offensive touch (11) than Carson (10).

    Huddle Up: Carson churned out 79 total yards while Penny had 43. After an offseason in which Carson was the source of nonstop praise from head coach Pete Carroll, he and Penny essentially saw the same amount of playing time. Carson is the superior option at the moment, but it remains to be seen whether or not Seattle has any interest in letting him win the job or not. Carson should be considered a flex play for now, while Penny should remain on fantasy benches.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 7:18pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson rushed seven times for 51 yards and caught three passes for 28 yards in a 27-24 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Carson was impressively efficient with his touches, but unfortunately for fantasy owners, he only touched the ball 10 times. The upside is there, but Carson is only a flex option until Seattle decides to give him 15-plus touches,

  • Posted: 8/16/2018 6:13am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson is the team's bellcow at running back, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

    Huddle Up: Rashaad Penny (finger) isn't expected to be out long, if at all, for the regular season. However, it looks like he's a complementary piece, and Carson is the one to target. Carson has some durability concerns of his own, but he's worth snagging as an RB3.

  • Posted: 8/13/2018 10:04pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (undisclosed) worked on the side with a training in practice Monday, Aug. 13, running from sideline to sideline on a different field from the team.

    Huddle Up: Carson has been receiving rave reviews early in training camp, so it's uncertain if Carson has suffered a new injury or the team was just being cautious as he returns from a broken leg. He has rookie Rashaad Penny to contend with in the backfield, but right now Carson isn't a bad back to scoop up as an RB5.
