Chris Carson is being drafted at his absolute floor.
He’s going as the RB20-RB22 on most platforms currently.
He’s currently a late 3rd/early 4th round pick.
The only RB to get significant snaps alongside Carson while he was healthy was Carlos Hyde, and he’s gone.
The Seahawks just signed Carson to a sizable contract; he’s their clear guy.
When I can draft a RB with RB1 upside as a low-end RB2, it’s very hard to pass up on.
Carson was top-10 in both yards after contact/attempt and yards/route run among qualifying backs in 2020.
He’s a great RB on a great offense as the clear goal line back, and Seattle is still trying to depend on Rashaad Penny to be their RB2. What are the chances Penny stays healthy or dependable?
If you find yourself looking for a RB near the 3-4 turn, Carson should happily be on your radar.
