  • Chris Carson Set To Be "A Full Go"

    Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson (foot) has been labeled a "full go" by head coach Pete Carroll for Monday's contest against Philadelphia. Carson has missed each of the team's prior four games due to a foot injury, as his absence coincided with numerous backfield injuries. Now, he'll return to true RB1 duties for Seattle, thereby putting himself back in low-end RB1 consideration in the vast majority of season-long formats. While Carlos Hyde has collected double-digit carries and rushing touchdowns in each of his last two games, Carson's return likely knocks him out of roster consideration except in the deepest of season-long leagues. Additionally, Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas can return to the waiver wire, barring an aggravation of injury to Carson's foot.

  • Chris Carson Logs Full Practice Session Tuesday

    Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson (foot) was able to record a full practice session Tuesday, a significant step in the right direction as it pertains to his availability for Monday's contest against Philadelphia. Carson has been on the precipice of returning over the past four weeks, but by getting in a full practice six days ahead of his next game, fantasy managers can likely rely upon Seattle getting their top running back option back on the field in a full capacity. Even when healthy this year, Carson has received double-digit carries in just three of his six contests, ceding touches to Carlos Hyde. With DeeJay Dallas having also shown flashes of potential in Carson's absence, the Seahawks' backfield could be much more crowded than usual by the time they face the Eagles in Week 12.

  • Chris Carson, Travis Homer Ruled Out For Thursday's Contest

    Seattle Seahawks running backs Chris Carson (foot) and Travis Homer (knee, thumb) have both officially been ruled inactive for Thursday's game against the Cardinals, paving the way for the duo of Carlos Hyde and DeeJay Dallas to handle the backfield load. Carson's absence will now stretch into a fourth week, as he will have ample time to recover ahead of a Week 12 matchup versus Philadelphia next Sunday. Homer, who had seen an increased role with Carson and Hyde absent in recent weeks, will miss his first game of the year and can safely be returned to the waiver wire in all season-long formats. Hyde should lead the Seattle rushing attack, but how effective he'll be in his first game action since Week 7 remains to be seen. Alex Collins and Bo Scarbrough could also be mixed in. He rushed for 68 yards and a touchdown against Arizona earlier this year, making him a safe floor selection in both single-game DFS and season-long formats as a flex.

  • Chris Carson Unlikely To Play Thursday

    Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson (foot) is listed as questionable for Thursday night against the Cardinals, but he is unlikely to play, according to a source. Carson got in some practice time this week, but it looks like the Seahawks will play it safe on a short week. The 26-year-old has been out since Week 7. Carlos Hyde (hamstring) got in a full practice on Tuesday and was removed from the final injury report, so he should return to a role in this backfield alongside rookie DeeJay Dallas and Alex Collins. Hyde has also been out since Week 7 when he had a season-high 15 carries for 68 yards and a touchdown. It'll be a backfield to avoid, especially since the Cardinals Defense has allowed just four rushing TDs all season.

  • Chris Carson Expected Back In Week 11

    Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson (foot) is out for Week 10 but reportedly has an excellent chance to return the following week for a pivotal divisional bout against the Cardinals. Carson has missed the last three contests with the injury, though he would be a welcome addition to a running game that has lost its bite since he went down. The veteran was actually injured during the previous game against Arizona, where he totaled 34 rushing hards on five totes. Carson would immediately slot back in as an RB1 for the potential offensive battle with Arizona.
