We can on MFL.  One dude in our dynasty league has Edelman and Ingram and he's activating both from IR this week.

I wish they'd just put this bum on IR and be done with it.  

 

if rb wasnt so thin I would drop him and never look back. . literally. pete has already made it clear Davis is going to be part of the rotation going forward

Makes me wonder what if Carson's situation is like that movie "Dave" with Kevin Kline. Maybe the guy hobbling around with Carson's jersey is actually a look-a-like and the actual Carson has already been released on an injury settlement.  He's currently at his home in Montana.

Relax...players coming off an injury rarely practices on Wednesdays. I'll be more concerned if he doesnt get in at least a limited tomorrow.

Carson was head and shoulders above Penny so all that arguing about Carson vs. Penny was just ridiculous.  However, Carson doesn't appear to be head and shoulders above Davis.  Also consider that after a 34 touch effort, Carson got hurt.  Would be reasonable for them to move towards something of a timeshare.  Maybe not 50-50 but Davis may get enough work to really eat into Carson's value.

Carroll's history doesn't indicate a timeshare, despite what dashoe wants us to believe. Unless a player gets hurt during the game Pete rides primarily one RB. At this point it is a mystery which RB he will go with this week even if Carson is healthy.

Carrols history and intent  has zero to do with what the facts and outcomes of the SEA backfield.  I don't get distracted by the nuance of injuries and  coachspeak. 

The facts are since beastmode the backfield has been a rotation of multiple rb's and  YOU CAN'T PREDICT a start a sea rb with certainty every wee for fantasy purposes .  Now if you have observed since marshawn Carroll has been extremely dissatisfied with his running game and has probably cycled through 8 or 9 rbs since marshawn searching for the results he wants.

Carson has been the designated starter since training camp yet. . . he has had only a single game out of 4 which and 25% of the fantasy season is over where he was the bellcow. 

FACTS. . . :)

Hate to say it but realistically, in a 10-teamer in particular, he's a drop. You have a three-headed committee (and potentially two receiving backs who could be in the picture later in the year), a TERRIBLE offense, and he's injury prone. The odds of him turning into even a low-end RB2 this year are fairly slim. Unfortunately the frustration of dropping him that would result from the extremely slim chance he becomes an asset is preventing me from following my own advice.

I'm betting Mike Davis runs the rock this week. Not because I picked him up, but based on Carroll. I think Carson sits again. Carroll is never truthful about injuries. He is the west coast Belichick in that regard. Always has been. Used to mess with injury reports before the NFL cracked down on that.
