The Seattle Seahawks come bouncing out of their bye week with a divisional showdown against the Arizona Cardinals. Running backs Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde have been dealing with injuries lately. Carson, however, should be good to go, but Hyde might be another week before he gets back into action. Here’s what to do with them in fantasy this week.

Fantasy Football analysis: Seahawks RBs Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde

Carson has been dealing with a knee injury, but last week’s bye gave him the chance to rest. He’ll play this week against the Cardinals in what should be a good game for him. He’s averaging four catches and 12 carries per game, but he’s producing when he has the ball in his hands.

After sitting out the last two games with a shoulder injury, Hyde was able to return to practice this week in a limited role. His status for Sunday is still up in the air, but he might not be ready for full contact yet, which would mean another week on the inactive list. For fantasy purposes, Hyde doesn’t get enough work in Seattle’s offense to have him in lineups.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Chris Carson. Sit Carlos Hyde.
