Seattle Seahawks

It’s taken a couple of weeks, but it appears a feature back has finally emerged in Seattle.

And it’s not Eddie Lacy or Thomas Rawls. It’s 2017 seventh-round pick Chris Carson. Carson carried the ball 20 times for 93 yards in Week 2 and has now played 74 snaps through two games. Lacy was a healthy scratch in Week 2 and Rawls was on the field for only 16 plays on Sunday. C.J. Prosise has helped out as a passing-down specialist, but has only seven touches on 31 snaps in the two outings. Considering he was a seventh-rounder, Carson may seem like a fluke, but he’s a player I suggested could be this year’s Jordan Howard way back in March. Carson is averaging 5.1 yards per carry, including 2.6 after contact, which is second best in the league behind only Derrick Henry (minimum 20 carries). Carson is owned in under 10 percent of ESPN leagues, but that should change in a hurry this week. Place your claims.

How many Eagles quarterbacks have thrown for 300 yards and multiple touchdowns in each of the first two games of the season? Four. Ron Jaworski (1982), Randall Cunningham (1994), Donovan McNabb (2006) and Carson Wentz (2017). Wentz does not appear to be primed for a sophomore slump.

Sam Bradford’s injury is concerning, but the Vikings have to feel good about Dalvin Cook. He’s averaging 5.6 yards per rush and has the most rushing yards (191) by any Vikings player in his first two career games, topping Adrian Peterson by 22.

Washington can be a force when its rushing attack gets going. Over the past three seasons, the Redskins are 15-2-1 when rushing for at least 90 yards as a team (3-13 when they don’t). The 229 rushing yards Sunday against the Rams were Washington’s second most in that span.

Published in 2015, that study concluded that those who started playing tackle football before 12 showed worse neurocognitive results than ex-players who began at 12 or older.
