Chris Carson? Worth holding on to?
Standard Scoring. I feel pretty solid with my RB line right now; would it be worth it to drop Carson for a player like Jordy Nelson, Giovani Bernard, or Tarik Cohen?

Current RBs are:

Zeke Elliot
Carlos Hyde
Aaron Jones
Chris Carson

Who knows man. He has a solid first game, Carroll says he's the lead back...next game hes out there playing on special teams. Then he puts another very solid outing and emerges as lead back then he gets injured and Mike Davis happens.

Gl trying to figure out that Seattle backfield.

I'd keep Carson over these guys. He had over 30 carries a few weeks ago and they claim he's the lead back. Not saying he's undroppable, but I'd rather him over the 3 guys you listed here.

Im a carson owner. Holding on.. he had a big game and was injured. penny is out of the discussion as he didnt even get the gig when carson went down. Seattle has had 100yd rushers the last 2 games, they may be figuring something out

Considering dropping Carson out of necessity.

QB - Dalton
RB - A Collins
RB - C Carson
WR - M Thomas
WR - T Hill
TE -
FLX - R Woods

B - Fournette - hurt
B - Howard - bye
B - G Tate
B - K Galloday
B - A Jones

100% keep him. Carroll says he's still the lead back when healthy, and he much more deserves to be rostered than Jordy, Gio, or Cohen.

Also a Zeke and Carson owner. I sold high. Too unreliable. Packaged him, J. Brown, and Burton for Leveon and J. Gordon.

Carson was my 3rd RB and Burton was my only TE. Figured its worth the risk of having Bell for late in the season and playoffs.

IMO Davis having a good game last week means he will cut into Carson's workload.

Why don’t you like Zeke? I feel like he’s solid compared to most backs - top 5 standard I believe.

As far as Carson goes, I was worried about the split but he got 30+ carries the last healthy game he played. Asking for 18+ seems about as good as I can get right now...

My personal opinion would be to keep Carson and drop Golladay.. You can get close to Golladay’s production off waivers if needed, but ultimately he is your #5 WR and you already have Golden Tate. I like a stockpile of backs, as those guys are harder to replace, especially with a hurt/injury prone Fournette and a spotty Jordan Howard as 1 & 2. Just my two cents...

Meant I had 2 of the same RBs OP in Zeke and Carson. Love Zeke. Traded MT13 and Freeman for him in Week 3.

I’d prefer to get a better RB than carson + a WR if you have a buyer in your league.

Bumping a thread like this you weren’t even involved with originally is fricking weak

Bumping these threads is weak regardless unless it's to thank someone. No one seems to ever bump when they're wrong and no one is right about this shite all of the time.

None, not touching that backfield unless he falls way below ADP.

Mixon and Samuels did just fine for me
