Let’s play fortune teller and try to predict what we’ll see from the Seattle Seahawks’ running backs during the upcoming 2020 season.

We all know the Seattle Seahawks are going to run the ball early and often in 2020. They’ve become known for putting the ball on the ground more than most NFL squads, but it seems to work out each and every season. If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it, right?

With that in mind, I wanted to imagine what the 2020 campaign could look like for the Seahawks’ gaggle of talented running backs. That obviously includes Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny, Carlos Hyde and the other young options currently on the roster. What will their stats look like at season’s end, and how will the various roles evolve before the regular season is over?

Those are the two main questions I’ll be trying to answer today.

For a little context regarding my mindset when making these predictions, I assumed that the Seahawks would run a little less. Primarily, this is because they’ll look to more heavily utilize their talented duo of wide receivers while also taking advantage of the many quality options they have at tight end. So keep that in mind if you start comparing last year’s numbers to my predictions.

Balance is never easy with this much talent in one backfield. And yet, if there’s any club capable of spreading the love correctly, it’s the Seahawks. What are my predictions for the Seattle running backs in 2020? Let’s find out.
