Seahawks' Chris Carson: Returning to Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks and Carson agreed to a contract Friday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

With his return to Seattle settled, Carson again will rise to the top of the running back depth chart. He posted back-to-back seasons with at least 1,300 yards from scrimmage and exactly nine touchdowns in 2018 and 2019, but an injury-plagued campaign last fall limited him to 968 total yards and nine more scores in 12 games. Carson will look to get back to his form from a few years ago in 2021.

Seahawks' Chris Carson: Headed for free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carson isn't getting a franchise tag, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Carson now becomes an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year March 17, unless the Seahawks sign him to a contract before then. Having made it this far without an extension or franchise tag, he likely will want to see what's available on the open market.

Seahawks' Chris Carson: Rushes for 77 yards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carson rushed 16 times for 77 yards and caught one of two targets for five yards in Saturday's 30-20 wild-card loss to the Rams.

The Seahawks' offense struggled to move the chains Saturday, but Carson was running hard once again, averaging 4.8 yards per carry. The 26-year-old running back had a down year as the Seahawks shifted to a more pass-heavy scheme than before. Carson rushed 141 times for 681 yards and five touchdowns over 12 games and 37 receptions (46 targets) for 287 yards and four touchdowns. His 4.8 yards per carry was a career high. The 2017 seventh-round pick is set to be an unrestricted free agent in March. His performance makes a strong case for him to be re-signed by the Seahawks. The fact that Rashaad Penny, DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer (knee) failed to produce this year helps Carson's cause as well.

Seahawks' Chris Carson: Clear for wild-card round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carson (foot) doesn't have a designation for Saturday's wild-card matchup with the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Carson's practice reps were capped this week, the result of load management. After sitting out Tuesday and logging a limited session Wednesday, he's set to lead the Seahawks backfield yet again this weekend. Since returning to action Week 12 after four games missed due to a mid-foot sprain, Carson has averaged 15 touches for 83 yards from scrimmage per game while scoring three TDs over six contests.

Seahawks' Chris Carson: Upgrades to limited participation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carson (foot) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Carson upgraded his participation after sitting out of Tuesday's practice. For both practice sessions, he was designated with a "load management" tag to go along with the foot injury. The fourth-year running back has logged limited practices ever since returning from a foot sprain Week 12, but he's on track to play in Saturday's wild-card game against the Rams. Carson has averaged 16 touches and 87.8 yards from scrimmage per game over the past five weeks, scoring two touchdowns in that stretch.

Seahawks' Chris Carson: Starts week with DNP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carson (foot) was a non-participant at Tuesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

The Seahawks typically manage Carson's reps during the practice week, and they're explicitly doing so once again. Along with the foot injury, the Seahawks listed Carson with a "load management" tag. If Carson's absence extends into Wednesday and Thursday's practices, then there will be some cause for concern. Carson has logged between 13 and 19 touches in each of the past five games, and he's expected to handle a similar role in Saturday's wild-card game against the Rams.

Seahawks' Chris Carson: Posts 83 yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carson (foot) rushed 11 times for 44 yards and caught both of his targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 26-23 win over San Francisco.

Carson finishes the 2020 regular season with 681 rushing yards and five touchdowns over 12 games. While this appears to be a step backward after eclipsing the 1,000-yard mark each of the last two years, the power back actually set new career highs in yards per carry (4.9), receiving yards (287) and receiving touchdowns (four) while missing four games due to injury. The 26-year-old will become an unrestricted free agent this upcoming offseason, so it will be interesting to see if the Seahawks decide to uncharacteristically open the checkbook for anyone not named Russell Wilson. Carson could potentially land in another situation that is more conducive to a downhill runner like him, and his slight improvement as both a runner and receiver this season could move his fantasy arrow upward if that were to happen. In the meantime, he and the rest of the Seahawks will take on the Rams in the first round of the playoffs Saturday.

Seahawks' Chris Carson: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carson (foot) doesn't have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game at San Francisco, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

The Seahawks have managed Carson's practice reps ever since he returned from a four-game absence Week 12. He's averaging 12.8 carries, 3.8 targets and 83 total yards per game since his return, scoring three touchdowns in five games. The Seahawks could lean on Carson a bit more than usual if backup Carlos Hyde (questionable, illness) isn't active Sunday.

Seahawks' Chris Carson: Puts in another limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carson (foot) was limited at practice Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Carson again had his reps capped, as has been the case for the running back since he returned Week 12 from four contests missed due to a foot sprain. During his most recent five-game stretch, he's averaged 15.4 touches for 83 yards from scrimmage per game while scoring three TDs. Assuming he's the lead back for the Seahawks on Sunday against the 49ers, Carson can expect a similar workload.

Seahawks' Chris Carson: Limited in practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carson (foot) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Since returning from his sprained foot Week 12, Carson has consistently been a limited participant in the Seahawks' subsequent practices. Unless Carson downgrades to no participation in practices Thursday and Friday, there won't be much cause for concern about his status for this weekend's game against the 49ers. With the NFC's No. 1 seed still in play for the Seahawks, Carson likely is preparing for a workhorse role.

Seahawks' Chris Carson: Produces 79 scrimmage yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carson (foot) carried 16 times for 69 yards and caught all three of his targets for an additional 10 yards during Sunday's 20-9 win over the Rams.

Carson shrugged off a minor injury to handle his largest workload in terms of touches since Week 4. He averaged a respectable 4.3 yards per carry against a tough Rams front and did little with his receptions despite hauling in each pass thrown his way. Carson was held out of the end zone for the second straight game, which is actually his longest such stretch of the season, but his health and production bode well for the newly-crowned NFC West champions. He will look to finish the regular season with a bang in next Sunday's matchup with the 49ers.

Seahawks' Chris Carson: Full practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carson (foot) returned to a full practice Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Carson recorded a season-high 70 percent of Seattle's offensive snaps in the team's Week 15 win over Washington. In the process, he carried 15 times for 63 yards and caught two of three targets for six yards. Now that he's practicing fully again this week, Carson is in line to continue to lead the Seahawks backfield Sunday against the Rams, with Carlos Hyde and Rashaad Penny on hand to work in complementary roles.

Seahawks' Chris Carson: Limited at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carson (foot) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Despite the Seahawks having Rashaad Penny (knee) back in action Week 15 for the first time in 2020, Carson logged a season-high 70 percent of the offensive snaps at Washington. Carson turned the elevated role into 17 touches for 69 yards from scrimmage in the victory, while Carlos Hyde made the most of his four touches with a 50-yard touchdown run, Penny had two carries for six yards, and DeeJay Dallas suffered a severe ankle sprain. Assuming Carson gets through the practice week unscathed -- as he has for each of Seattle's previous four contests -- he should be the team's lead back Sunday against the Rams.

Seahawks' Chris Carson: Rumbles for 63 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carson rushed 15 times for 63 yards and caught two of three targets for six yards in Sunday's 20-15 win over Washington.

While Rashaad Penny did return from last year's torn ACL in this contest, Carson was the clear lead back once again, handling 15 of the 18 backfield carries. The fourth-year running back finished with more than 60 rushing yards for a third straight game, but he didn't get any goal-line chances and failed to find the end zone as a result. Penny won't push Carson for a starting role anytime soon, so the latter should handle his typical workload in a Week 16 clash against the Rams.

Seahawks' Chris Carson: All good for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carson (foot) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Washington, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Carson's availability was never in doubt. The Seahawks have been managing his reps since he returned from a four-week absence, with their caution also extending to in-game situations when the outcome has already been decided. Carson's 45 percent snap share during the Week 14 win over the Jets is a bit deceiving; he handled 11 touches and 71 percent of snaps in the first half of the contest before sitting out most of the second half while Seattle sat on an insurmountable lead.

Seahawks' Chris Carson: Puts in another limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carson (foot) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Carson maintained his activity level from Wednesday, while fellow running back Carlos Hyde (toe) bumped from limited to full. There isn't much worry about Carson's Week 15 availability, as he's regularly been limited on Seahawks injury reports before each of the last three contests. Assuming both Carson and Hyde are active Sunday in Washington, the former likely will take on a similar workload from the aforementioned three-game stretch, in which he averaged 13.7 touches for 89 yards from scrimmage per game while scoring three TDs.

Seahawks' Chris Carson: Practice reps capped
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carson (foot) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

The Seahawks are limiting both Carson and Carlos Hyde (toe) to begin Week 15, but neither of Seattle's top two running backs looks in danger of missing Sunday's game against Washington. The duo has played in each of the last three games, handling nearly all of the running-back carries during that stretch. Assuming he gets the green light for Sunday, Carson should take on a greater portion of the overall touches after he took more of a backseat to Hyde in the second half of a 40-3 blowout win over the Jets in Week 14.

Seahawks' Chris Carson: Finds end zone in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carson carried the ball 12 times for 76 yards and a touchdown and caught three of five targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 40-3 win over the Jets.

He fell just shy of reaching 100 scrimmage yards for the fourth time this season, and Carson almost certainly would have gotten there in a more competitive game, as Carlos Hyde saw plenty of work in the second half in his place. Carson will likely see a bigger share of the backfield touches in Week 15's road clash with a Washington squad that should put up more of a fight.

Seahawks' Chris Carson: All good to face Jets on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carson (foot) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jets, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

After playing just 37 percent of snaps in his first game back from the foot injury, Carson bumped up to 58 percent snap share and 110 total yards in last week's 17-12 loss to the Giants. He'll lead the Seattle backfield again, with Carlos Hyde mixing in for some carries and DeeJay Dallas potentially taking a few third-down snaps.

Seahawks' Chris Carson: Another limited session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carson (foot) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Both Carson and Carlos Hyde (toe) maintained their activity levels for a second consecutive session. There doesn't seem to be much worry about the availability of either running back, but Friday's injury report could have the final say on their statuses. If the Seahawks operate with a similar breakdown of the backfield Sunday against the Jets as they did Week 13, Carson should hover around 60 percent of the offensive snaps, with Hyde and DeeJay Dallas handling the rest of them. During this past Sunday's loss to the Giants, Carson churned out 110 yards from scrimmage and one TD on 16 touches.
