  • Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Start Him (Lineup Decisions)

    The matchup against New Orleans is a tough one for Penny. They've been pretty good against rival running backs, but Penny's upside pushes him into the top-20 among runners. He should have a safe floor of 80 total yards. I'd rather start Jeff Wilson and Damien Harris given their matchups, but Penny is still worth starting over James Conner, Kareem Hunt and the Rams running backs.

  • Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Tending to shoulder issue

    Penny was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice due to a shoulder injury, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. On the heels of his 151-yard, two-touchdown performance in a Week 4 win at Detroit, Penny had his shoulders heavily wrapped when he met with the media, according to Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune. At the outset of practice Wednesday, Penny was spotted on the side during warmups, per Brady Henderson of ESPN.com, and he eventually had a DNP next to his name on Seattle's first Week 5 injury report. As a result, Penny's status will be one to monitor Thursday and Friday to get a sense of his potential to play Sunday in New Orleans. Rookie second-rounder Kenneth Walker and DeeJay Dallas are the next running backs behind Penny on the team's depth chart.

  • Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Bust Alert (Start/Sit)

    I had Penny as a sleeper here last week, and he delivered his best game of the season against the Lions with 17 carries for 151 yards and two touchdowns, along with one catch for 6 yards. He's clearly the No. 1 running back for Seattle ahead of Kenneth Walker III, but that doesn't mean Penny is a must-start Fantasy option in all leagues. Prior to facing the Lions, who are terrible defensively, Penny combined for 16 PPR points in his first three games. The Saints have allowed one rushing touchdown and two touchdowns combined to running backs all year. It wouldn't be a shock to see Penny's production plummet in a tougher matchup this week on the road.

  • Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Blasts through century mark in win

    Penny rushed 17 times for 151 yards and two touchdowns and brought in his only target for six yards in the Seahawks' 48-45 win over the Lions on Sunday. Penny kept up his strong start to the season with his first 100-yard game of the campaign, getting past the mark largely on the back of 36- and 41-yard touchdown runs in the second half that helped seal the wild win for Seattle. The latter scamper came at an especially critical time, transpiring with 2:14 remaining after the Lions had closed to within three points. Penny's pair of trips to the end zone were also his first of the season, and he'll take an impressive 6.0 yards per carry figure into a tough Week 5 road matchup against the Saints' talented defensive front.

  • Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Sleepers (Start/Sit)

    The Seahawks are giving too many running backs playing time as Penny, Ken Walker, Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas all played in Week 3 against Atlanta. Penny still led the team in carries with 14, and he finished with 66 yards. He has a limited role in the passing game with three catches for 10 yards on the season on four targets, which is a concern. And if he doesn't score then his stat line could be minimal. But the Lions have already allowed six rushing touchdowns to running backs this year, and Penny could be a top-20 running back in all leagues if he gets into the end zone for the first time this season.

  • Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Start Him (Lineup Decisions)

    The Seahawks offensive line isn't perfect, and Penny isn't promised every single carry, but it's the kind of matchup Penny has thrived on in the past. This might even be the week the Seahawks opt to run more; they're currently passing at the seventh-highest rate in the league. I'd trust Penny over Ezekiel Elliott, Breece Hall, Dameon Pierce and Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

  • Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Gains 69 yards in loss

    Penny rushed 14 times for 66 yards and caught his lone target for three yards in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Falcons. The Seahawks were in this game from start to finish, and Penny's workload (14 of 21 running back carries) reflected that better than last week's blowout loss to San Francisco. It has been a disappointing start to the 2022 campaign for the popular breakout candidate, as he now sits at a pedestrian 32 carries for 141 yards and no touchdowns through three contests. Seattle's receiving back, Travis Homer (ribs), went down to injury in Sunday's loss, so Penny could see a few extra targets if the former is forced to miss extended time. Penny will look to break his scoreless drought against a porous Lions defense that has surrendered 31.0 points per game to opposing offenses this season.

  • Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Sleepers (Start/Sit)

    We'll see how much more work Ken Walker gets in his second game, but I still expect Penny to lead the Seattle backfield against the Falcons. In Week 2 against San Francisco, Travis Homer actually played the most snaps of the Seattle running backs at 45 percent, with Penny at 41 percent and Walker at 24 percent. Penny only had six carries for 15 yards, but this is a better situation for him in Week 3 since the Seahawks are favored at home. He's worth using as a flex option in the majority of leagues.

  • Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Sneaky Sleeper (Lineup Decisions)

    Though he will lose touches to Kenneth Walker, I still like Penny ahead of Damien Harris, both Jets running backs and Chase Edmonds in non-PPR.

  • Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Held in check in Week 2

    Penny gained 15 yards on six carries in Sunday's 27-7 loss to the 49ers. The entire Seattle running game got shut down, managing only 36 rushing yards total and 2.6 yards per carry, so Penny's poor performance wasn't out of place. Rookie Kenneth Walker also saw six touches (four carries and two catches) in his NFL debut, and the potential for a true timeshare between the two should be concerning for fantasy GMs with Penny stock, but it's hard to draw many conclusions from a game script that forced the Seahawks away from their preferred ground-heavy approach. Up next in Week 3 is a Falcons defense that has yet to allow a RB to reach 50 rushing yards against them.

  • Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Gets 14 touches in Week 1 win

    Penny rushed 12 times for 60 yards and caught two of three targets for seven yards in Monday's 17-16 win over the Broncos. Penny picked up where he left off late last season as Seattle's featured back, as other Seahawks running backs combined for just one rushing attempt. Penny put the ball on the ground at the end of a 26-yard run in the second quarter, but a mix of hustle and awareness from center Austin Blythe to get on top of it ensured that Seattle kept possession. A would-be 23-yard run was erased by a holding penalty in the third, but Penny still averaged a productive 5.0 yards on the carries that counted. The eventual return of rookie second-round pick Kenneth Walker (hernia) could complicate matters, but Penny should monopolize carries until that point, and Walker may not be ready for his NFL debut when the Seahawks face the 49ers in Week 2.

  • Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Sit 'Em

    The good news for Penny is he's healthy entering Week 1. He battled hamstring and groin injuries this offseason, and he recently missed practice time due to a positive test for COVID-19. He also likely won't have to worry about Ken Walker (hernia) playing this week. But I'm still not fully trusting Penny in this matchup with the Broncos, and I would only use him as a flex if possible. If Denver pulls ahead in this game, we could see more of Travis Homer then you expect since he's the passing-down running back in Seattle. The Seahawks offense could struggle with Geno Smith under center, and Penny could have a lot of empty carries if he doesn't score.

  • Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Puts end to COVID absence

    Coach Pete Carroll said Penny returned to team facilities Tuesday from his bout with COVID-19, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports. Penny tested positive for COVID-19 last Thursday, ensuring that he wouldn't see any game action during the preseason. He sat out the exhibition opener due to a minor groin injury before being a healthy scratch for preseason Week 2. Penny's ability to stay healthy has been an issue throughout his career, but his impressive end to the 2021 campaign (671 yards and six TDs on the ground over the final five games) has him in good standing ahead of a Week 1 matchup with the Broncos. Helping his cause further is the fact rookie second-round pick Kenneth Walker's status for the opener is in question due to his recovery from hernia surgery, according to Brady Henderson of ESPN.com.

  • Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Tests positive for COVID

    Penny tested positive for COVID-19 and won't play in Friday's preseason game against Dallas, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. Penny reportedly doesn't have serious symptoms and is expected to rejoin the team within a few days. He's still on track for the start Week 1 against Denver, with potential for an especially large workload if rookie second-round pick Kenneth Walker (abdomen) isn't ready.

  • Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Unlikely for preseason finale

    Penny isn't likely to play in Friday's preseason game against Dallas, with the Seahawks trying to keep him healthy for Week 1 against Denver, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. Penny is set to enter Week 1 as the starter, and he could see an especially large workload early on with fellow running back Kenneth Walker (abdomen) recovering from surgery. The Seahawks weren't ready to rule the rookie out beyond the preseason at the time of surgery, but it doesn't appears his chances of being ready for the beginning of the regular season are great.

  • Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Not in line to play Thursday

    Penny isn't expected to play in Thursday's preseason game against the Bears, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. The same goes for rookie second-round running back Kenneth Walker, who is slated for surgery to repair a hernia. If all goes well in his recovery, Walker is in line to play Week 1, while Penny still has a chance to make an appearance before then in the Seahawks' final exhibition Friday, Aug. 26 at Dallas. Penny didn't play in the team's preseason opener due to a minor groin injury, so it appears coach Pete Carroll and company are being cautious with their presumed top RB.
