DeeJay Dallas Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny has been added to the injury report as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Rams with a knee issue. He, of course, just returned a few weeks ago from his December 2019 torn ACL. Penny's absence this weekend would leave Seattle with RBs Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde and DeeJay Dallas -- with Alex Collins potentially being elevated from the practice squad.

The Seahawks have elevated RB Alex Collins from the practice squad to the active roster, putting him in the mix for Sunday's game against the Bills. We wouldn't bet on him becoming a fantasy factor himself, but Seattle could spread touches among Collins, a healthier Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas enough to weaken Dallas' fantasy outlook. It looks at least like a potentially fluid situation.

The Seahawks' final Week 8 injury report lists RB Carlos Hyde (hamstring) as doubtful and RBs Chris Carson (foot) and Travis Homer (knee) as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers. Hyde and Carson were unable to practice all week, while Homer only got in a limited practice on Friday. HC Pete Carroll said they'll go "all the way to game time'' before making a decision on these 3 guys. Hyde is obviously unlikely to play, and we're betting against Carson suiting up after he was labeled "week to week" by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport on Monday. We'll see about Homer. Rookie DeeJay Dallas is Seattle's only healthy RB and at this point looks like the favorite to lead the backfield in touches on Sunday. 49ers-Seahawks doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET, but hopefully we'll get an update on this backfield on Sunday morning.

Seahawks RBs Chris Carson (foot), Carlos Hyde (hamstring) and Travis Homer (knee) all remained sidelined on Thursday. We're getting closer to rookie DeeJay Dallas serving as Seattle's lead back vs. the 49ers on Sunday. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Seahawks RBs Chris Carson (foot), Carlos Hyde (hamstring) and Travis Homer (knee) all missed Wednesday's practice. That left DeeJay Dallas, who's on the injury report with an arm but put in a full practice, as Seattle's only RB. Carson isn't expected to play vs. the 49ers this weekend, while Hyde and Homer are uncertain. We'll continue to monitor the situation but recommend stashing Dallas in the meantime.

Chris Carson isn't the only Seahawks RB dealing with an injury. HC Pete Carroll said Monday that RB Carlos Hyde has tightness in his hamstring, and RB Travis Homer has a knee bruise. That leaves rookie DeeJay Dallas as the only healthy RB on the roster. Carson will miss Sunday's game against the 49ers, but we'll have to see about Hyde and Homer. Dallas is worth a wait-and-see stash in the meantime.

Seahawks RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Vikings. RBs Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas will play behind Chris Carson.

Seahawks RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Vikings. He’ll step back in as Seattle’s #2 RB if he’s able to suit up. If not, it’ll again be Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas behind Chris Carson.

The Seahawks added Miami RB DeeJay Dallas in the 4th round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Dallas actually opened his college career at WR before moving to RB midway through his freshman campaign. A committee back over the past 2 seasons, Dallas totaled 224 carries for 1,310 yards (5.8 YPC) and 14 TDs. He did set career highs across the board in 2019 with 115 carries, 693 yards, 6.0 yards per carry and 8 TDs. His 14 receptions and 140 receiving yards were also personal bests. Dallas’ WR background gives him some intrigue, but he still looks like a fantasy long shot. He joins a crowded backfield in Seattle alongside Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny, Travis Homer and C.J. Prosise — although Carson and Penny are both recovering from serious injuries.
