Chris Carson 2020 Outlook


Recommended Posts

NFL soft as hell for only fining him. That was 100% dirty and and an intent to injure. If this had been a high-leverage play in a prime time game, this would get a lot more exposure and would’ve probably led to a more severe punishment. That shouldn’t matter, though. If Myles Garrett got six games and a fine for knocking some sense into Rudolph, this guy definitely deserves a similar punishment as a baseline.

Wow - a freak injury occurred from him being tackled. Not a hamstring, not something from just running. But he got tackled awkwardly and twisted his body.  Please kindly escort yourself out for p

Um Carson got 20 touches to Hyde's 7 and he got a TD, what more do u want? 😆

You had me until you said Garrett's fine and six game suspension should be a baseline punishment for Hill.

I agree with most of the sentiment in here. He should be suspended for at least a game.

His goal line usage was a bit concerning even up until that injury. The Seahawks lived at the goal line all day and I think Carson got stuffed on his lone carry at 1st and goal at the 1. On second and goal at the 1, they threw it to Lockett for the td. There was another 1st and goal at the 1 later on and they didn’t even bother handing it to Carson, just went directly to Lockett.

This type of usage is probably the only thing holding him back from a RB1 status really. If you don’t hand it off to your back at the 1 yard line, then it really caps your td upside. Just my luck that I started Carson in 1 league and Singletary in another lol.

They’ll probably trust Hyde even less going forward so Hyde probably gets bumped down 1 tier to RB3 status.

if you guys have rb depth are you running out to grab hyde for a week replacement? to me it makes no sense...plus u dont even know how they will use hyde and the other back...could be full out split

I'm not - I can plug Carson's production well enough from my bench, and anything I'd drop for Hyde is worth far more than Hyde - not worth it for (hopefully) a 1 week fill-in who, as you said, isn't even a lock for RB1 usage or production.

Curious about other people's takes as well. Should be a high scoring game... and maybe this is better suited for the Hyde thread... but what type of production relative to Carson should we expect from Hyde while Carson is out?

based on what i saw last week its a split...hyde the runner and the other guy on passing downs i guess? could have a nice game or a lackluster game...i passed on hyde and went justin jeff...i had to with my current wr depth being shaky..for 1 or 2 weeks its fine for me at the moment unless i lose another guy this week..i cant see him being out more than a week though

I was able to grab Hyde for free this morning. If Carson ends up playing, is Hyde worth holding onto in case god forbid Carson has a more serious injury this year?

No. I was not even compelled to pick up Hyde as a Carson owner. Chris Carson and Penny are workhorse type RBs. I'm sure Hyde would split time with DeeJay Dallas.

I don't know if I'm on board with that. 

If Carson plays, it's going to suck, because I see the following happening:

Low usage to make sure he's ok

He gets injured - in which case Hyde is a great asset for your team, or trade.

 

Either way, I don't think Carson has a great day. Just speculation and my opinion.

I would hold on to Hyde just to see how the week goes. He's only good for a couple weeks as Penny is coming back, but you never know when you might need solid RB2 numbers depending on how your roster is.

As a CC owner (who does not have Hyde) I think Hyde is def the plug-and-play option if Carson sits or gets re-injured...for now, but it will become a bit of a mess when Penny returns...Hyde will get subbed out (unlike Carson) on obv passing downs though. Still, a 2 down banger like Hyde has plenty of low end RB2 value in this offense.
