Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny to split Seahawks backfield Week 13

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll indicated Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny will split touches in Week 13 against the Minnesota Vikings.

What It Means:

"Chris is a guy who is a big part of our team and we’ll do everything we can," Carroll said of Carson. "Competition is a beautiful thing and no reason not to get [Penny] back in there next week. We'll get those guys hammering away." This comes after Carson fumbled the ball on back-to-back plays in the second half of Sunday's Week 12 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. He finished with a season-low 8 rushes for 26 yards while Penny came in and posted 129 yards with a touchdown on 14 carries. With the fantasy playoffs fast approaching, Carson may all of a sudden be the second option in Seattle's backfield.

Carson finished with 7.7 FanDuel points on Sunday. Penny posted a season-best 18.9 FP. The Vikings have the sixth-best rush defense in the NFL (94.2 yards per game).
