  • Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Rarely utilized on offense in 2021

    Dallas finished the 2021 season with 33 carries for 138 yards and two touchdowns and 21 catches (23 targets) for 133 yards through 17 games. He also recorded 764 yards on 33 kick returns.

    Dallas played more than 40 percent of the offensive snaps just twice this season, and he averaged a mere 8.9 snaps per game. The second-year running back had a chance to secure an increased role when Chris Carson (neck) and Alex Collins (abdomen) suffered injuries. Instead, Rashaad Penny burst onto the scene over the final five weeks with 671 rushing yards (7.3 YPC) and six rushing touchdowns. Penny will be an unrestricted free agent in March but could be re-signed by the Seahawks, and Carson is expected to be back for training camp. Even if both Penny and Carson are out of the picture, the Seahawks will almost certainly bring in competition for Dallas and Travis Homer.

  • Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Practices fully Wednesday

    Dallas (quadriceps) was a full practice participant Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Dallas came out of the Seahawks' Week 17 win against the Lions with a bruised thigh, but it was revised to a quad issue upon the release of Wednesday's injury report. With an uncapped session under his belt, Dallas seems to be past the health concern. In any case, Dallas' touches have been sporadic while working behind Rashaad Penny over the last five games, as he's recorded 15 carries and seven catches on his way to 107 yards from scrimmage and one rushing score.

  • Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Suffers thigh bruise

    Dallas picked up a thigh bruise in Sunday's 51-29 win over the Lions, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Dallas rushed once for one yard and returned a pair of kickoffs for 48 yards before getting injured. Rashaad Penny has dominated touches in Seattle's backfield lately and racked up 170 yards and two touchdowns on the ground in this one. If Dallas suits up for next week's season finale against Arizona, he'll likely split change-of-pace duties behind Penny with Travis Homer.

  • Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Snags four passes in loss

    Dallas rushed four times for 15 yards and caught all four of his targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 25-24 loss to the Bears. He also returned three kicks for 79 yards.

    After working in a timeshare with Rashaad Penny last week and finding the end zone, the second-year back took a back seat to Penny on Sunday. Dallas ran ahead of Travis Homer, who was activated off the COVID-19 list Saturday, but it's possible Homer takes the No. 2 role once he gets a full week of practice under his belt. However, Penny looks like the clear-cut starter for the final two regular-season games either way. It's worth noting that head coach Pete Carroll made Alex Collins a healthy scratch this week, as it appears he's giving the younger running backs a chance to audition for a role in 2022.

  • Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Finds end zone in loss

    Dallas rushed eight times for 41 yards and a touchdown while catching three of four targets for 11 more yards in Tuesday's 20-10 loss to the Rams.

    Dallas appeared to have fallen out of favor after seeing just two touches last week while Rashaad Penny dominated on the ground. Head coach Pete Carroll reverted to a timeshare between the two backs, and Dallas turned out to be the better option from a fantasy perspective. Penny figures to see more action in games that the Seahawks either go up early in or dominate the time of possession in. Thus, Dallas may find himself seeing less usage in a matchup against the lowly Bears on Sunday.

  • Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Slated for change-of-pace role

    Dallas is expected to serve as the top backup behind starting running back Rashaad Penny in Tuesday's game against the Rams, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    Seattle elevated Josh Johnson from the practice squad to give the backfield a third option, but there aren't any other threats to the No. 2 role after Alex Collins (illness) and Travis Homer (illness) weren't reinstated from the reserve/COVID-19 list for the Week 15 contest. Adrian Peterson (lower back) wasn't promoted from the practice squad either, so unless the Seahawks are willing to give Johnson his first NFL snaps, Dallas looks like he'll be the top change-of-pace option. Look for Dallas to see most of his reps on passing downs, where Homer has typically replaced Peterson, Collins and Penny this season.

  • Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Carries twice in win

    Dallas rushed twice for 16 yards in Sunday's 33-13 win over the Texans. He also returned two kicks for 41 yards.

    Dallas recorded just 10 offensive snaps even though Travis Homer (calf) was out of the lineup, finishing behind Rashaad Penny (35) and Alex Collins (14). He's highly valuable for the Seahawks on special teams, but fantasy managers don't need to keep tabs on him unless Penny or Collins is injured.

  • Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Minimal usage in win

    Dallas didn't record a touch in Sunday's 30-23 win over the 49ers. He returned five kicks for 133 yards.

    Dallas logged just two offensive snaps while Rashaad Penny, Travis Homer and Adrian Peterson all played at least 18 snaps. However, Dallas had his best game as a returner this season. With Alex Collins (abdomen) expected to return next week against the Texans, Dallas isn't expected to get much tread on offense.
