Chris Carson 2019 Fantasy Outlook

#24 RB Chris Carson 2019 Fantasy Outlook

Chris Carson (Seahawks)

5'11, 222 lbs

Last season the Seahawks spent a first-round pick on running back Rashaad Penny, but Chris Carson won the starting gig in camp and never looked back. In just his second season, Carson finished with 1,151 rushing yards with 9 TD's and chipped in another 163 receiving.

Carson is a load to bring down. His combination of power and lateral agility are impressive, and he can beat you in a number of ways as a runner. While he didn't wrack it up in receiving, he did show nice hands catching 20 of 24 targets, so there is room for progression.

There are a couple of flags when considering picking Carson. He did have offseason knee surgery and Penny came into minicamp impressing the coaching staff with his conditioning and his play. Still, a guy who just went for over 1,100 yards at 4.7 a carry would be hard not feed once again.

The Seahawks lost Mike Davis to the Bears so even if Penny sees a bigger workload, Carson's still has a role in this offense that should put up some big numbers.
