Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) said he hopes to be ready for the start of training camp. He said the broken bone in his hip will heal without surgery and should not be a long-term issue.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should monitor Carson's rehab during the offseason to see if he suffers any setbacks. He finished fifth in the NFL with 1,230 yards and also had seven rushing touchdowns. He will be a No. 1 or No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues next season if he is healthy.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) will not need to undergo surgery on his injured hip this offseason, according to head coach Pete Carroll. The team hopes Carson will be ready for training camp.
Huddle Up: Carson likely will not do much during offseason workouts but appears to be on track for the start of the 2020 season. He finished 2019 with 1,230 yards and seven touchdowns. Carson can be a No. 1 running back in fantasy leagues next season as long as he is healthy.

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is feared to need season-ending surgery on the hip injury he suffered in Week 16 versus the Arizona Cardinals, according to comments made by head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: C.J. Prosise (arm) is also believed to be done for the year. If it is true that both Carson and Prosise will not return, it means rookie Travis Homer will get the start in Week 17 against the San Francisco 49ers and for however long the Seahawks last in the postseason. If this is the end for Carson, he'll conclude 2019 with 1,230 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground to go along with 38 catches for 266 yards and two more scores through the air. Owners should view him as a low-end RB1 in 2020.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) suffered a hip injury during the Week 16 game and is considered questionable to return.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson rushed 24 times for 133 yards and two touchdowns in Week 15 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: With Rashaad Penny out of the picture it's the Chris Carson Show, and he more than looked capable of handling the entire workload. He is in line for a huge fantasy performance in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson faces the Carolina Panthers in Week 15, and the Panthers have allowed an NFL-high 24 rushing touchdowns this season.
Huddle Up: Carolina is also allowing 5.3 yards per carry, the most in the league, and Carson should have the backfield to himself after Rashaad Penny suffered a knee injury in Week 14. At worst, he should be a high-floor RB2 against the Panthers.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson carried the ball 15 times for 76 yards against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Dec. 8. Carson also caught three passes for 15 yards.
Huddle Up: Despite a middling performance, Carson's value will go skyward following the unfortunate injury to Rashaad Penny, who appeared to suffer a serious knee injury on Sunday night. Assuming Penny misses the remainder of the season, Carson should be a RB1/RB2 the rest of the way as Seattle is in position to play for a division crown in Week 17, assuming they take of business with Carolina and Arizona.

Seattle Seahawks RBs Chris Carson played 39 snaps versus 35 for Rashaad Penny in Week 13 against the Minnesota Vikings. In Week 12 versus the Philadelphia Eagles, Carson logged 31 snaps and Penny finished with 30.
Huddle Up: It would appear Carson's fantasy owners must deal with the reality he is going to be splitting work for the foreseeable future, at least until Penny blows his latest chance. The good news for fantasy owners of either running back is the remaining fantasy schedule shapes up well for both players to produce, as there should be plenty of positive game script against the Los Angeles Rams, Carolina Panthers and Arizona Cardinals over the final three weeks of the fantasy season. Both players should be considered RB2s now.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson rushed 23 times for 102 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Minnesota Vikings and he had a seven-yard grab.
Huddle Up: Carson carries the mail, while Rashaad Penny was also very effective. He remains a strong RB2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 14 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson is still going to the lead the backfield rotation despite his fumbling issues, according to offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. 'Chris is our guy,' Schottenheimer said.
Huddle Up: Despite the vote of confidence, Rashaad Penny likely earned a few more touches with his 129-yard performance in Week 12. Meanwhile, Carson could find himself on the sidelines if he fumbles again, making him a boom-or-bust RB2 candidate against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.
