Chris Carson, Thomas Rawls, Eddie Lacy's Updated Fantasy Outlook After Week 2

Fortunately, the 49ers' defense held the Seahawks to two field goals in the first quarter, and could not mount a drive to begin the second. There's a style about the way he runs that you might recognize...we've seen it for a long time. But there's no denying that Hoyer must improve quickly or this season will slip away sooner than some might have expected.

Lane was ejected from last Sunday's game against Green Bay with officials saying he threw a punch at Green Bay receiver Davante Adams, a play that could have also been subject to a fine from the National Football League (here's the full list of offenses that can draw a fine). After more than 112 minutes of game action, the Seahawks finally scored their first touchdown of the season on Wilson's 9-yard strike to Paul Richardson with 7:06 remaining to take the lead for good.

"Doug Baldwin has always been in my head about being tougher and staying in there", Carson said. "But that's football, though". Hoyer threw for just 47 yards in the first half and threw his second interception of the season. The 49ers defense spent 36:58 on the field but didn't seem to tire until Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson was able to hurt them with his legs on a pair of late fourth-quarter drives. Seattle has one. And that was enough for them to win on Sunday. Starter Thomas Rawls is active, as is rookie Chris Carson and third-down back C.J. Prosise.

San Francisco's own running attack showed some life with Carlos Hyde running for 124 yards on 15 carries, including a 61-yarder, with Matt Breida contributing 35 yards on just four carries.

However, there were too many times when Wilson had no time to throw. Wilson also looked antsy at times even in clean pockets, perhaps still feeling the effects of all the pressure he faced in Green Bay. Now he looks to rebound in one of the game's loudest venues and against one of its stingiest defenses. Wilson has one or less touchdown passes in seven of his last eight games.

"That's 14 points right there that would have made a difference", Carroll said of the drops.

Well, there was the drive that won the game and then the drive that sealed it.

Richardson caught the game-winning grab after suffering a compound dislocation of his finger, which he had sewn up before returning.

Bradford was sacked just once, and the Vikings averaged 4.3 yards per carry with Cook breaking two long runs in the second half. Pass protection was the concern going into this season, but Bradford was given time in the pocket to ignite the Vikings offense.

"He did well today", Carroll said after Friday's practice. "We just need to keep doing it; keep chopping wood is really what it takes". While both corners proved to be up to the challenge, each will likely be counted on to play large roles again against the 49ers.

The San Francisco 49ers (0-1) are coming from a 23-3 loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 1.

"You could not have convinced me going into that game that that was the way we were going to perform", said offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.

But a typically brilliant day from the Seattle defense kept the Seahawks in position to capitalize.

"We know we could have played better".

Carroll said Sherman "felt" the injury during the Green Bay game.

Griffin, a third-round draft pick out of Central Florida, totaled 10 tackles and a pass break-up against Aaron Rodgers, who struggled to get over the top of Seattle's secondary.
