14 Clyde Edwards-Helaire, KC 12 22.4 2.08 13.5

Mike's Thoughts: Drafted CEH 3.12 (36) in 12-team Superflex best ball (FFPC format) in early August.

15 Saquon Barkley, NYG 10 24.6 1.12 7.7

Mike's Thoughts: Given concerns about Barkley even starting the season on the active roster, and there isn't much reason to be bullish about the Giants offense, I am fine to fade Saquon for now.

Tier 4
16 Chris Carson, SEA 9 27.0 3.03 15.7

Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson has been one of the best values in the NFL over the last three seasons, and he was rewarded with a new contract this offseason. Now, he stands alone in a Seahawks backfield that lacks a consistent threat behind him. Other players on the roster have mostly been guys that have filled in during injury or to spell Carson. Carson figures to see a massive workload this season. Rashaad Penny and DeeJay Dallas are really the only other names of note in this backfield, but with Carson's extension now in place, they are likely delegated to backup roles for this season.

  • Chris Carson Scores Twice In Week 2

    Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson wasn't super efficient in Week 2, but he still managed a solid fantasy day against the Tennessee Titans. Carson finished the day with 13 carries for 31 yards. Carson didn't see his usual workload in the receiving game, as he failed to register even a target on the afternoon despite an overtime affair that game him an extra period to perform. As we've seen over the past couple of seasons with Carson, he's one of the more consistent running backs across the league in fantasy. Sometimes it takes a touchdown or two to get the job done, but he almost always gets it done.

  • Chris Carson Is An RB2 In Week 2

    Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson didn't have the best game in Week 1, but he has a good matchup in Week 2 against the Tennessee Titans to bounce back. The Titans defensive front was getting moved around with ease in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals, and this new Seahawks offensive line seems like they're getting movement again. Throw in the fact that Carson gets involved in the passing game, and that helps elevate his floor from a flex play into an RB2 every week.

  • Chris Carson Could Be Held In Check In Week 1

    Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson is looking to start his 2021 season off on a high note, but that's not going to be the easiest task against a stout Indianapolis Colts defense. Over the last three seasons in games against top-16 run defenses, Carson has averaged four fewer fantasy points per game than against teams on the lower end. The Seahawks improved the interior of their offensive line, but the Colts are still stout up the middle. Carson could sneak into the back part of the RB2 conversation, but you should be able to find better options for an RB1 slot on opening weekend.

  • Chris Carson Says Seahawks Offense Is "More Explosive"

    Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson is coming off the 2020 season where he had trouble staying healthy. Carson played in only 12 games last season, and when he was active he did not receive the workload that he was previously able to handle. The 26-year-old carried the ball just 141 times (11.8 per game) for 681 yards and five rushing touchdowns. With the Seahawks bringing in Shane Waldron as offensive coordinator, Carson should be able to get closer to the 278 carries he handled in the 2019 campaign. "Shane does a great job of making everything balanced, mixing up different schemes. It's a more explosive offense," Carson said. Going into his fifth season in Seattle, the 2017 seventh-round pick is fully healthy and ready to get back to elite form. In what should be a more balanced offense, Carson is likely to see enough work to post solid RB2 numbers for fantasy managers. He could be in for some positive touchdown regression as well, potentially giving him a higher floor than some other RB2 options.

  • Chris Carson Remains The Lone Producer In Backfield
