Chris Carson Fantasy Football News 2020

Seahawks RB Chris Carson doesn't need surgery on his fractured hip, he told reporters last week. He added that he hopes to resume running by the start of Seattle's offseason program but wouldn't commit to being ready for training camp. That's a reminder that this is a significant injury he'll be returning from. We'll keep a close eye on his rehab throughout the offseason.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson does not need surgery for the hip injury that ended his season, HC Pete Carroll said. Carroll added that Carson's rehab will be "somewhat extensive" but that he's expected to be ready for the start of training camp. We'll monitor his progress this offseason.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said after Sunday's loss to the Cardinals that RBs Chris Carson (hip) and C.J. Prosise (arm) are both out for the season. Ouch. Seattle figures to add a RB this week, but Travis Homer will now be atop the depth chart. The 6th-round rookie finished with 16 yards on 5 carries but 6 catches for 26 more yards vs. Arizona. He goes 5'10, 201 pounds and earned a 79th percentile SPARQ score in pre-draft testing. Homer will be a volume-based fantasy starter vs. the 49ers next weekend.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson injured his hip in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Cardinals and is officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one. RB C.J. Prosise is done for the day with an arm injury. That leaves Travis Homer as Seattle's only healthy RB.

Update: Carson has been ruled out.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny tore his left ACL in Sunday night's loss to the Rams, HC Pete Carroll announced Monday. That obviously ends Penny's season, and the timing could challenge his readiness for the start of 2020. We'll see about his progress over the summer. The injury makes RB Chris Carson an even clearer workhorse for upside matchups with Carolina and Arizona the next 2 weeks. C.J. Prosise was the only other Seattle back to play against the Rams, and he garnered just 1 touch.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny hurt his left knee in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Rams and was quickly ruled out. That usually suggests a serious injury. We'll update Penny's status when we learn more. His absence turns Chris Carson back into an every-down back.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll suggested Monday that RB Rashaad Penny will remain involved going forward. He took on an increased role in the win over the Eagles and capitalized with 129 yards and a score on 14 carries. "Chris [Carson] is a guy who is a big part of our team and we’ll do everything we can (for him)," Carroll said. "Competition is a beautiful thing and no reason not to get (Penny) back in there next week. We'll get those guys hammering away." Note that after Carson's lost fumble on Sunday -- his 4th of the season -- Penny out-carried Carson 5 to 0. We'll look for more clues on what this backfield will look like going forward, but we'll probably just be guessing how carries will be split in next Monday night's game against the Vikings.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) isn’t listed on the Week 7 injury report. He figures to see a handful of touches behind RB Chris Carson in Sunday’s game against the Ravens but isn’t a realistic fantasy option.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) is inactive for today's game against the Browns. C.J. Prosise will step back in as Seattle's #2 RB -- but Chris Carson should be in for another monster workload.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (shoulder) isn't listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He was added on Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. He's safe to keep in fantasy lineups for Sunday's game against the Browns. RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) is listed as questionable, despite putting in full practices all week. We'll check on his status Sunday morning.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson was added to the injury report on Thursday as limited with a shoulder. ESPN's Brady Henderson notes that the team made Carson available to the media, "something they typically don't do with players whose statuses are in serious question." Carson should be fine for Sunday's game against the Browns, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) isn't listed on the final Week 5 injury report and will return for Thursday night's game against the Rams. Penny played 30% of Seattle's offensive snaps and averaged 8 carries over the first 2 games of the season. We're expecting him to return to a similar role behind Chris Carson on Thursday.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that he expects RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) to return for Thursday night's game against the Rams. Penny was listed as a full participant on Monday's practice report -- although Seattle didn't actually practice. We'll see what he's able to do when the team actually does hit the field on Tuesday. Penny will return to a #2 role behind Chris Carson, who bounced back in a big way in Week 4.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Cardinals. He sat out Wednesday's practice, was limited on Thursday and a full participant on Friday. HC Pete Carroll said Friday afternoon that Penny has a "good chance" to play vs. Arizona. He's not much of a Week 4 fantasy option, but his return would add risk to Chris Carson's outlook.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll threw his support behind RB Chris Carson on Monday. "Because we do believe in him, we're going to continue to show him that," Carroll said. Carson lost his 3rd fumble of the season in yesterday's loss to the Saints, but it sounds like Seattle is sticking with him as the lead back. It's worth noting that Carson fumbled just 3 times on 323 touches across his first 2 NFL seasons.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny is inactive for today’s game against the Saints. He garnered one-third of the team’s RB carries through 2 games, so his absence is a nice boost for RB Chris Carson.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny is not expected to play against the Saints today after injuring his hamstring in Friday's practice, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Schefter adds that the injury isn't serious, so Penny seemingly has a good shot to be back for Week 4. But his absence today is a nice boost for RB Chris Carson. Penny handled 33% of Seattle's RB carries through 2 weeks. Most of those figure to go to Carson. C.J. Prosise will serve as the Seahawks' #2 RB but isn't a fantasy option.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny is questionable for this weekend's game against the Saints after injuring his hamstring in Friday's practice. His absence would give RB Chris Carson's volume projection a boost and leave C.J. Prosise as Seattle's #2 RB. We'll look for an update on Penny's status Sunday morning. Seahawks-Saints doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET.
