Chris Carson, Seattle Seahawks vs. Los Angeles Chargers
Carson is a heavy volume, low return back who has put up respectable numbers against average to bad defenses. The question is, where are the Chargers on the scale of run defenses. Aside from Todd Gurley (duh) and Dion Lewis, they’ve handled backs between the tackles. It’s the backs who can catch that give the Chargers some trouble, but they’ve only allowed on to score on them through the air. It’s not a position that does particular well against L.A. but it doesn’t do a bad job either. Given the byes, it’s a week where Carson would be best reserved to fill a flex position and nothing more.
