Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Will push for more snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pete Carroll said Penny will push Chris Carson for more playing time and expects the duo to form a one-two punch, John Boyle of the Seahawks official site reports.

Penny had a bumpy rookie season, as he missed most of training camp with a broken finger and fell behind Chris Carson and sometimes even Mike Davis in the backfield pecking order. He was still highly explosive and averaged 4.9 YPC to reach 419 rushing yards along with nine receptions for 75 yards. Carson was dominant and more consistent, however, racking up 1,314 scrimmage yards through 14 games. Penny has the potential to be a lethal running back, but he's facing an uphill battle since Carson has already proven it. There's clearly a place for Penny to earn a more stable workload since the Seahawks ranked second in the league with 33.4 rushing plays per game. The battle for how those chances are divided should go on through the offseason program and training camp.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: One notable carry in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny rushed four times for 28 yards in Saturday's playoff loss to the Cowboys.

Penny was the most-efficient running back on paper in this outing with 7.3 yards per carry, but that stat's deceptive since it's a small sample size one of his rushes went for 28 yards while the other three combined for a goose egg. The rookie first-round pick couldn't secure a starting role this season when Chris Carson was healthy and only recorded double-digit carries twice, ending up with 85 carries for 419 yards and two touchdowns. Carson broke out as a highly productive back, but Penny's lack of touches after being the second running back selected in the 2018 NFL Draft is a troubling review, especially with young backs flourishing around the league. Penny will look to capture a more backfield reps with a strong offseason program and training camp. However, Carson is under contract for two more years and coach Pete Carroll's game plan is historically tough to read, so fading his 2019 outlook is appropriate at this time.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Bottled up by Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny gained just six yards on four carries in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

Penny missed the previous two games with a knee injury, and he didn't get a carry until the second quarter. It was a brutally unproductive outing, and he fell behind Mike Davis, who rushed seven times for 44 yards and a touchdown. Penny is a more explosive back than Davis, but with limited touches, he needs to break out big plays early to earn more carries behind indisputable starter Chris Carson. The rookie first-round pick shouldn't be counted on in postseason fantasy formats without a dependable snap count.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Suiting up Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penny (knee) is listed as active Sunday against the Cardinals.

A full practice participant all week, Penny still needed to get through a pregame workout unscathed to make his first appearance since Week 14. With the health of his knee approved by the training staff, he'll be available to the Seahawks backfield, though his workload could be determined by game flow. Chris Carson will get the initial touches but could be pulled if Seattle gets out to a comfortable lead, which would leave Penny and Mike Davis to vie for snaps.

Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Needs to complete pregame workout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pete Carroll said Penny (knee) will be a game-day decision Sunday against the Cardinals, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

A full practice participant throughout the week, Penny nonetheless finds himself listed as questionable for the regular-season finale. He seems more likely than not to suit up, and he could actually get some extra work if the Seahawks jump out to a lead. The team needs a win to ensure a first-round matchup with Dallas instead of Chicago, but it still makes sense to ease up on Chris Carson after three straight games with 22 or more carries. Sunday's kickoff is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. EST.
