Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: No offensive chances on MNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dallas garnered zero offensive snaps and 18 special-teams snaps during Monday's 23-17 win against the Eagles.

With Chris Carson joining Carlos Hyde in the Seahawks backfield after sitting out four games due to a mid-foot sprain, Dallas was relegated to a strict special-teams role. The fourth-round rookie out of Miami collected 28 rush attempts between Weeks 8 and 11, but he managed only 3.3 yards per carry. Three total touchdowns over that span boosted Dallas' fantasy value; however, it doesn't appear he will have much involvement Week 13 against the Giants unless there is an injury above him on the depth chart.

Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Garners just three touches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dallas rushed once for 13 yards and caught both of his targets for 19 yards in Thursday's 28-21 win over the Cardinals.

Dallas lost reps to a practice squad running back for a second straight week, as Alex Collins out-snapped him last week against the Rams and Bo Scarbrough (hamstring) did the same against the Cardinals. Meanwhile, Carlos Hyde returned from a hamstring injury and operated as the team's lead back, turning 16 touches into 95 yards and a touchdown. Chris Carson (foot) is expected to return next week against the Eagles, so Dallas' fantasy value has essentially evaporated now.

Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Takes back seat in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dallas rushed twice for eight yards and caught two of three targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Rams.

Dallas was expected to take on a large workload once again because Chris Carson (foot) and Carlos Hyde (hamstring) were inactive, but instead Alex Collins ended up leading the Seattle backfield in snaps and touches. This may have been Dallas' final opportunity for a significant workload, as Carson is expected to return this Thursday against the Cardinals.

Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Opportunity awaits Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dallas should rotate with Travis Homer during Sunday's game against the Rams following news that Chris Carson (foot) and Carlos Hyde (hamstring) are out, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

The Seahawks will play a third straight week with their top two running backs on the sidelines. Last week when the Seahawks were trailing almost the entire game, Homer led the backfield with a 48 percent snap share, and the two backs both handled nine touches. Homer finished with 80 total yards, including a 50-yard reception, and Dallas totaled 39 total yards and a score. While Dallas doesn't get much work in the passing game, he's the designated goal-line back and has rushed five times within the five-yard line over the past two games. He should have solid upside once again with a potentially high-scoring game on tap.

Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Finds paydirt in losing effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dallas rushed seven times for 31 yards and a touchdown and caught both targets for eight yards in Sunday's 44-34 loss to the Bills.

With Chris Carson (foot) and Carlos Hyde (hamstring) out for a second straight week, the Seahawks may have planned to give Dallas more work. However, the Bills took a two-score lead just 7:25 into the first quarter, and the Seahawks shifted even heavier toward the pass. Dallas still salvaged his day by punching in a four-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Travis Homer was more efficient, totaling 80 yards on nine touches. It's unclear whether Carson and Hyde will return for the Week 10 matchup against the Rams, and Dallas' role will diminish if either is active.

Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Could start again Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dallas could be in store for a second straight start Sunday against the Bills with the Seahawks ruling out Chris Carson (foot) and Carlos Hyde (hamstring) for Sunday's game against the Bills, Brady Henderson of reports.

In last week's win over the 49ers, the Seahawks had Dallas and Travis Homer available as their only backs for the contest. Though Homer had slotted directly behind Carson and Hyde all season, he may have only been more of an emergency option Week 8, as he was questionable with a knee injury leading into the contest. As the lone Seattle back at full health, Dallas out-snapped Homer by a 54-7 margin, and despite finding the end zone twice, the rookie wasn't particularly efficient with his opportunities (18 carries for 41 yards, five receptions for 17 yards). Since Homer won't be carrying an injury designation into Sunday's game and is presumably in a better spot health-wise, Dallas won't be a safe bet to dominate the running back snaps and touches like he did last week even if he receives another start. The Seahawks' Week 9 backfield situation could become even murkier if the team elects to promote Alex Collins from the practice squad prior to the game.

Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Finds end zone twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dallas carried the ball 18 times for 41 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against San Francisco. He added five receptions for 17 yards and another score.

Dallas took advantage of the absence of Chris Carson (foot) and Carlos Hyde (hamstring) to account for 18 of the team's 28 rush attempts. He wasn't very efficient -- he averaged only 2.3 yards per attempt and his longest rush of the day went for nine yards -- but did punch in a one-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter to clinch a victory for Seattle. More impressive was Dallas' involvement in the passing game, as he converted all five of his targets into receptions and made another trip to the end zone. Carson and Hyde were both game-time decisions and could be back for Week 9, which would greatly reduce Dallas' role against Buffalo.

Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: In line for more snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dallas will be one of two active running backs for the Seahawks alongside Travis Homer (knee) with Chris Carson (foot) and Carlos Hyde (hamstring) sidelined for Sunday's contest against the 49ers.

The Seahawks notably have allowed Russell Wilson to "cook" this season, ranking in the bottom 10 in rush play percentage (38.5 percent). Still, with the team down its top two RBs, and Homer tending to a knee contusion, there's a chance Dallas is the lead ball carrier Sunday. While Dallas has only played 23 snaps on offense in his brief career, the rookie fourth-rounder's six touches have translated to 41 yards from scrimmage.

Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Could handle lead role?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dallas is the only Seattle tailback without an injury designation for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Brady Henderson of reports.

Chris Carson (foot) and Travis Homer (knee) are listed as questionable, while Carlos Hyde (hamstring) is doubtful. Given that Homer has mostly seen playing time on passing downs to this point in his career, it's possible Dallas could be the lead ball carrier if he and Homer are the only backs available Sunday. But Carson does have a history of battling through injuries, and coach Pete Carroll expects his starter to be a game-time decision ahead of Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff. Stay tuned.

Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Catches two passes in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dallas caught two of three targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 37-34 loss to the Cardinals.

Chris Carson left in the second quarter with a foot injury, opening the door for Dallas to get on the field after logging no offensive snaps in Seattle's last game. The rookie was solid in his opportunities, and he could be counted on more moving forward because Travis Homer also exited with a knee contusion. If both Carson and Homer are forced to sit out next week against the 49ers, Dallas would line up as the No. 2 running back, a role that would yield a handful of touches.

Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: No carries versus Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dallas did not receive an offensive snap during Sunday night's 27-26 win over Minnesota.

The rookie back out of Miami fielded four offensive touches during a Week 4 road win over the Dolphins, but he was not incorporated into the offensive game plan against the Vikings. Dallas did garner 18 special-teams snaps during the contest, but at running back, only Chris Carson and Travis Homer had any involvement offensively.

Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Could rotate in Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dallas could log his first offensive snaps in Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Dallas made his NFL debut in Week 3's win over the Cowboys but only played on special teams. He could get his first shot Sunday if Chris Carson (knee) and Carlos Hyde (shoulder) are unable to play. Both running backs recovered from serious injuries this offseason and were limited participants in Thursday's practice. If neither Carson nor Hyde suits up, Dallas would operate as the No. 2 RB behind Travis Homer.

Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Not suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dallas (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Falcons.

The rookie fourth-round pick will put his NFL debut on hold, as Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde, and to a lesser extent Travis Homer, will handle the backfield workload. Dallas had an impressive training camp, showcasing his pass-catching abilities, so he's still in the Seahawks' plans this season.

Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Facing tough path to snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dallas could be stuck on special teams or the inactive list for much of his rookie season, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

The unusual circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic add an extra layer of difficulty to the college-to-pro transition, and Dallas faces the added challenge of landing in a crowded backfield with Chris Carson (hip), Rashaad Penny (knee), Carlos Hyde (shoulder) and former college teammate Travis Homer. Injuries partially explain the depth, but it appears all besides Penny are expected to be ready for Week 1, which likely means Homer and Dallas will compete for the No. 3 job behind Carson and Hyde. Dallas has more draft capital behind him as a fourth-round pick, but Homer, a sixth-round selection last year, appears to be a more natural fit for passing downs, which could make him useful as a complement to Carson and Hyde. Dallas, on the other hand, is a 217-pound bruiser who ran a 4.58 40-yard dash after catching only 28 passes in three seasons at Miami (FL).

Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Scooped by Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seattle selected Dallas in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 144th overall.

Dallas joins former Miami (FL) teammate Travis Homer in the Seattle backfield. The 21-year-old Dallas had his junior year cut short by an elbow injury but was able to test at the combine, where he ran a 4.58 40-yard dash and added unimpressive times in the agility drills. What Dallas lacks in top-end athleticism he makes up for with vision and a physical running style at 5-foot-10 and 217 pounds. He'll need a strong preseason to crack the 53-man roster and may need to make an impact on special teams as well.
