got both penny and carson.  wondering if i should play both rest of the way.  penny as the flex

It’s something I’m considering too. My league starts 2RB and 2WR OR 1RB and 3WR. My #3 WR is Marvin Jones. My RB options are outside of the Seahawks duo are all gimpy (Freeman & Mack)

Kinda what I've been saying for the last week assuming Carson doesn't fumble and Penny doesn't botch an assignment/continues to look good. There's tons of value to be had when your offense is as run-dominant as Seattle and they split it between only 2 RBs. I'm a little surprised they didn't activate CJ myself.

Why not all 3?

We don't use a flex.

Flex is awesome, gives you more variables. My league is Double Flex (WR/TE and WR/RB/TE), join next year! :)

According to early snap numbers, Carson played 52% of the snaps and Penny 47%. Carson missed a series and a half due to a stinger/concussion check(?) I'd expect to see a 55/45-60-40 split the rest of the year assuming nobody flubs and Seahawks don't get a third party in the RB mix.

Chris Carson had 15 carries for 76 yards and caught 3-of-4 passes for 15 yards in Week 14 against the Rams.

Carson looked set up for a huge game with Rashaad Penny leaving with a knee injury on the opening drive. He was effective with his touches, but gameflow worked against him, with Carson still ceding a few snaps to C.J Prosise. Penny’s knee injury appeared significant, so Carson is headed for an every-down role moving forward. He’ll be a locked-in RB1 for a matchup with Carolina in the fantasy semi-finals.

Rashaad Penny went down with an injury on his first snap of Sunday's game and is expected to miss the rest of the season. With Penny sidelined, Chris Carson returned to workhorse duties, playing 50 of 62 possible snaps. Carson carried the ball 15 times, ran a route on 26 of the team's 41 pass plays and was targeted four times. C.J. Prosise (one carry and no targets on nine snaps) and rookie Travis Homer (zero snaps) were relative nonfactors. Carson is set up for 20-plus touches this week against a Panthers defense that has allowed the most touchdowns (24) and fantasy points (390) to running backs this season. He's a candidate for one of his best games of the season.

Well I hate to see injuries but the path is clear now

Great match-up this week. The stars are aligned for a fat stat line so he'll probably put up 60 yards on 20 carries.

Oh goody I’m looking forward to playing against him this week in the semi’s

I'm looking forward to starting him in the semis. Especially since I have Mike Evans, Chark, Thielen, Jared Cook, and a waiting room full of walking wounded on my team. I figure I need 157 points from Carson to advance to the super bowl.

That or he'll get pulled inside the 10 for Prosise.

Starting both. Expecting a good day. Would lean Carson too. Carolina has been so so bad and may have quit. Seahawks great traveling East. Coming off a loss. Don’t think they’ll be flat.

I really like this guy.  Even in a timeshare with Penny.  Glad I traded for him in a dynasty and drafted him in a redraft.

Chris Carson erupted for 133 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries while also securing one of two targets for four yards Sunday in the Seahawks’ Week 15 win over the Panthers.

Going against the NFL's fourth-worst run defense (allowing 139.2 yards per game), Carson laid waste to Carolina, rumbling to a season-high 133 rushing yards while punching in his eighth and ninth touchdowns of 2019. He got off to a booming start, throttling the Panthers for 47 yards and a touchdown on the opening drive. The carnage didn't stop there as Carson thundered into the end zone for a six-yard, grown-man touchdown with seven minutes to go in the fourth quarter. Carson has struggled with ball security at times (league-worst seven fumbles) but has already rushed for over 1,000 yards, a mark he's achieved in two of three seasons since arriving as an anonymous seventh-round pick in 2017. With Rashaad Penny (ACL) no longer a threat, Carson should see another monster workload when the Seahawks host Arizona in Week 16.

I wouldn't be surprised that with all the doom and gloom, a lot of owners sit Carson and be has a 14-80, 3 for 35 receiving, 3 TD game in the next few weeks. Feels like he hasn't gotten the opportunities to punch it in as often as you would expect for a Russell Wilson team. 

and there it is:

Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson was tasked with being the solo shot in the backfield once again after Rashaad Penny hit the IR with a torn ACL, and he came to play. Carson destroyed the Panthers Defense on Sunday as he carried the ball 24 times for 133 yards, a new career-high. He also ran in a pair of touchdowns and exploded for huge yardage on the regular against the Panthers. He's now at 1,190 rushing yards this season, another career-high, and he'll be expected to remain one of the focal points of Seattle's offense for the rest of the season. Expect the Seahawks' success to ride heavily on his shoulders as the regular season winds up and the postseason begins.--Billy Stonick - RotoBaller

Coach Pete Carroll said Chris Carson (hip) is out for the season.

After going 8/40 running and 1/20 receiving, Carson exited the Seahawks' Week 17 loss to the Cardinals just before halftime. C.J. Prosise (arm) is also done for the year, so Travis Homer is expected to receive a featured role for the team's season-defining Week 17 matchup against the 49ers. It's a disappointing end to what had been a great season for Carson (when he managed to hold on to the ball). Overall, he rushed for 1,230 yards and seven touchdowns while also chipping in a 38-266-2 receiving line. Carson and Rashaad Penny form a lethal one-two backfield when both are healthy.

Wk 17 championship in one of leagues

Sucks to lose him 

At least you know and can start someone else.  I lost the championship by 2 points.

He was great all year, so not complaining, just disappointed.  Hope he can heal properly for next year.

Ummmmm, so what sort of injury does he have? Geeze.

Is he cool for 2020?

Hope some info comes out soon

Maybe just a few month thing, but certainly doesn’t sound good when he’s already ruled out for the rest of the season - including post-season - without even a Monday morning MRI.

Hip fracture

Carroll said Carson's hip injury is similar to the one safety Lano Hill suffered late last season. Hill had surgery on his hip last January; he was out for roughly eight months.

Sounds like Carson and Penny will be having a rehab race to get ready for week 1.

When was the last time that a team lost its top-3 RBs for the season?

Good question.  It had to involve Fred Taylor somehow though.

Bo Jackson and Tua have ball and socket hip injuries in their histories, it would seem. 

Anything can smash and disintegrate.

"Fragile Fred" was an unfortunate nickname which had more to do with alliteration than with reality. (He only missed significant parts of 3 out of 13 seasons due to injury.) You can also blame Tom Coughlin's outdated mentality on injuries -- he insisted on listing Taylor as "Questionable" every week in 2001, despite the fact that team doctors had ruled him out for the season.

Big forces coming from very large men accelerating quickly can fracture anything in the body. It’s like a car accident some of the hits these guys take

Seems like there had to be a Shanahan team to do this. Isn't it how Ryan Torrain came to be a thing for a bit? 

Maybe I'm misremembering but didn't a ton of injuries precede the Peyton Hillis breakout season?

Actually speaking of Shanahans, last year the 49ers at one point had lost all of McKinnon, Tevin, and Breida for the year I think? 

These could all be incorrect.

I think you're on to something here.

The 2008 Broncos opened with Selvin Young as their starter. He was injured after a few weeks (but returned toward the end of the season as a non-starter) and was replaced by Michael Pittman, who started the next 3 games before getting injured. Then they turned to Ryan Torain, who had 68 yards on the first 12 carries of his first start.....before tearing his ACL shortly before halftime. Then they turned to Peyton Hillis, who started the next 4 games but tore his hamstring in week 13. At that point they turned to a recently-resigned (and hopefully motivated) Tatum Bell.

When Hillis had his breakout season in Cleveland, he opened the year as their starting fullback and was already getting a decent number of carries by the time their starting RB Jerome Harrison got injured.

Without the injury concern, he has to be viewed as a top15 dynasty RB right?  I can understand trepidation because of the injury and maybe he doesn't make a top15 list but because of his role he should be viewed rather highly right?  He's like Peyton Barber though, doesn't get respect as a starting RB, except Carson is actually good.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Chris Carson (hip) does not need hip surgery.

It's a sigh of relief after Carson was initially expected to undergo offseason surgery and battle potential long-term damage on the road to recovery. Carroll also sounded optimistic (as he typically does) that the 25-year-old would be healthy and ready for training camp. Rashaad Penny's value post-ACL injury in Best-Ball leagues this offseason could be worth chasing pending Carson's rehab throughout the spring.

Interesting. I think checking in with Jene Bramel's injury update might provide us with further clarity as the weeks go by. Fracture or disjointment must be different injuries, different rehabs, different protocols, you name it. 

et* I think Jene was exactly right at the time he had the information, however, news today seems to have changed the diagsnosis in some way. I won't post paid subscriber content analysis until it becomes free for all to see on the internet or mad speculation reigns.

That would seem to mean Carson is questionable for the beginning of training camp. Coach Pete Carroll once again emphasized Tuesday that Carson avoided a fracture and surgery. Carson's injury seems less serious than Rashaad Penny's, but is major all the same. Backfield-obsessed Carroll might need to add another body to his banged up running back corps.
