Chris Carson's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Chris Carson to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 153 projected fantasy points puts him at #19 behind Aaron Jones and ahead of David Montgomery. He has averaged 12.89 fantasy points in his past 16 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 10.9 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#20) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly more valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #18 ranked running back. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite running back. He is not projected for elite value. Chris Carson is expected to come up short of last season's #14 fantasy position rank.
