Seattle Seahawks: 3 Players Primed for a Breakout Season in 2018

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Chris Carson, Running Back

Ever since Marshawn Lynch decided to retire and then return with the Oakland Raiders, the Seahawks have been searching for a consistent running back. Chris Carson is hoping to fill that void this season.

After suffering a leg fracture that ended his season in 2017, Carson is ready to get back on the field and earn the starting job. He has looked great in training camp thus far and is currently expected to enter the season as the starter in the backfield. That’s right, Carson is currently beating out 2018 first-round pick Rashaad Penny.

In the 2017 season, Carson ended up playing in four games. He carried the football 49 times for 208 yards. Those numbers may not look impressive, but he did show some of his full potential in a September 17th game against the San Francisco 49ers with 20 carries for 93 yards.

Carson is going to have a huge season in 2018 and won’t look back. Seattle will finally have their every-down workhorse and Carson will prove that he is a more than capable NFL starting running back.
