The running game becomes a non factor versus the Titans more often then not. Anyone judging Carson on this game is being completely shortsighted. Carson did manage to score a receiving TD against them. I see him bulldozing the Colts this weekend. 

 

 

 

I'm not too sure about this, the Colts run defense has proven itself. It's the pass defense which is their weakness.

Colts run defense is solid, that's true. But I see Seattle destroying a Luck-less Colts, and that could easily mean 20+ carries for ya boy. I think this is a 100 yard and a touchdown type game. 

 

Personally, my advocacy for Rawls and Carson over the past couple years has been that I believe Petey loves to ride one bellcow and that he loves to run the ball if at all possible. I think this is the kinda game for that.

So Carson is now the first second and third down back right? 

Yeah but he'll most likely now be ceding about 5-10 carries to Rawls to make up for the added work on third downs. This is certainly a massive boost in PPR leagues.

really?

 

maybe RaRah Petey trips us all up and Rawls gets the bellcow gig while Carson assumes Prosise role?

 

?

 

Nobody gonna comment on this? Not worried that Rawls might take some drives to spell Carson and use him as a 3rd down back? He's definitely proved he can catch out of the backfield.

Woah big news about Prosise.  Carson should have top 10 upside weekly now.  

 

Well if Sea O Line gets better yes.  Right now I wouldn't call him top 10 upside weekly.  But he is a safe weekly RB2 with a decent floor.  Right now, as in how the Sea O Line is today, his upside is capped.

Carson is now the preferred third down back I disagree. In ppr leagues he has a safe floor now with massive upside because game flow shouldn't affect him anymore.
