The Seattle Seahawks have started the season 3-0, with lead back Chris Carson playing a big part in the team's success. Last week, the Dallas Cowboys injured the running back on a dirty play. However, he has made a speedy recovery, after Carson received a positive injury update.

Coach Pete Carroll said Carson looked good in practice, after practicing Thursday and Friday. This is terrific news, since many expected the worst when the injury initially occurred. Typically, a player practicing both Thursday and Friday means good things about their status for Sunday, and Carson should be no different.

The Seahawks travel to take on the Miami Dolphins in Week 4, giving Carson a terrific matchup. On the season, the Dolphins have surrendered 4.9 yards per carry, which is tied for the ninth-most in the NFL. Carson has been given 31 carries over the past two weeks, which he took for 136 yards.

Aside from is rushing production, Carson has added 12 receptions for 93 yards and three touchdowns this season, which is what makes him such a hot commodity for fantasy. In our Week 4 PPR rankings, Carson is slotted in as RB13.
