Seahawks HC Pete Carroll called RB Zach Charbonnet a "complement" to RB Ken Walker and highlighted Charbonnet's ability in the passing game. "He can block and catch the ball out of the backfield," Carroll said. "He's good in the screen game. Makes big plays." Charbonnet caught 61 balls over the past two seasons at UCLA and ranked 13th among 119 qualifying RBs in Pro Football Focus' 2022 receiving grades. Walker totaled just 19 receptions across three college seasons, although he did tally 27 receptions as a rookie last year. We'll keep a close eye on Seattle's backfield this summer, but it sounds like Charbonnet might be slated for passing-down duties. That'd be bad news for Walker's fantasy value.

The Seahawks selected UCLA RB Zach Charbonnet in Round 2 of the 2023 NFL Draft. Charbonnet got off to a rough start to his college career at Michigan but managed to find his way high up draft boards after a pair of stellar seasons at UCLA. He doesn’t have a singular trait that sticks out and makes you say “wow,” but he checks several boxes prospective managers will love. Charbonnet has the size at 6’0, 214 pounds. His 4.53-second 40-yard speed is plenty with his frame. Plus, Charbonnet can be trusted as a short-area pass-catcher. His targets nearly doubled from 2021 to 2022 en route to finishing his senior season with 1,680 scrimmage yards, showing he’s one of the small handful of RBs in this class with three-down potential at the next level. He just won’t be placed in that role in the short-term. Charbonnet landed with a Seahawks squad already featuring Kenneth Walker, who finished as a top-20 fantasy RB as a rookie. Current projections have Charbonnet as the PPR RB50.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker carried the ball 15 times for 63 yards with 1 TD in Saturday's loss to the 49ers. Considering how tough of a matchup the 49ers' defense presented, the rookie back's production is certainly admirable. Walker ended the 2022 season with over 1,000 rushing yards and 9 TDs and will certainly be in RB1 conversation in drafts come summertime.

Seahawks RB DeeJay Dallas (ankle, quad) is active for today’s matchup with San Francisco. RB Tony Jones was elevated from the practice squad on Saturday, but he's on Seattle's inactives list today. Look for rookie Kenneth Walker to continue dominating backfield touches.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (ankle) logged limited participation on Thursday and doesn't carry an injury designation ahead of Saturday's Wild Card game vs. the 49ers. Teammate RB DeeJay Dallas (ankle, quadriceps) also practiced in a limited fashion and is listed as questionable. RB Godwin Igwebuike suddenly becomes an interesting name to consider should Dallas eventually be ruled out. Regardless, this is a tough draw for the Seahawks' rushing attack. The 49ers' defense rank as the single-toughest matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs. Walker should see a decent amount of work but shouldn't be viewed as much more than an RB2.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (ankle) didn't practice on Wednesday. Teammate RB DeeJay Dallas (ankle, quadriceps) also didn't practice, leaving Godwin Igwebuike as the only healthy back on the roster currently. There's still one more day of practice before official injury designations are assigned for Saturday's Wild Card game vs. the 49ers. This is something we'll assuredly keep everyone in the loop about.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (ankle) was listed as a full participant on Tuesday's practice report. Fellow RB DeeJay Dallas (ankle) did not practice. Injury reports are based on estimations of participation this early in the week. We'll have a better idea of how healthy this backfield is for Saturday's Wild Card matchup vs. the 49ers tomorrow.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (ankle, illness) practiced fully on Friday and doesn't carry an injury designation ahead of Week 18 vs. the Rams. The Seahawks aren't backing off Walker down the stretch: He's carried a whopping 49 times over the past 2 weeks. He should be in for heavy volume again this Sunday with the 'Hawks 6.5-point home favorites against the Rams. Consider the rookie a solid RB1 in your fantasy lineups.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (illness, ankle) missed Thursday's practice. Teammates DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer also didn't practice, both with ankle injuries of their own. We'll need to see Friday's report before giving any sort of fantasy advice regarding Week 18 vs. the Rams.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (ankle, illness) did not participate in Wednesday's practice. Teammate RB DeeJay Dallas (ankle) also didn't participate. We'll keep an eye on the 'Hawks duo in advance of Week 18 vs. the Rams. Hopefully tomorrow brings better news about their health.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III rushed 23 times for 133 yards in Sunday's win over the Jets. A 60-yard scamper played a big part in his 5.8-yard average, as Walker managed just 3.3 per tote on his other 22 attempts. But volume has often been on the rookie's side. This was his 2nd straight game with more than 20 carries and 5th since Week 6, when Walker took over for an injured Rashaad Penny. Walker and the Seahawks still need to win and get help to reach the playoffs. He'll face a Rams defense in Week 18 that has been tougher against the run than the pass overall. Those Rams allowed a big rushing day to Austin Ekeler in Week 17, though.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Jets. The rookie got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, which is more than he did last week. We’re expecting Walker to play his usual role in this one. RB Travis Homer (ankle) is inactive

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Week 17 vs. the Jets. The dynamic rookie practiced in a limited fashion on Thursday and Friday after opening the week sidelined. His teammates Travis Homer (ankle) and DeeJay Dallas (ankle) also logged limited practice on Friday. The Jets' defense ranks as the 10th-toughest matchup for RBs in adjusted fantasy points allowed. We consider Walker a mid-RB2 in Week 17. Neither Homer nor Dallas carries fantasy relevance if Walker suits up.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (ankle) participated in a limited fashion at Thursday's practice. After not practicing at all on Wednesday, this is certainly a good sign. Fellow RB DeeJay Dallas (ankle) also logged limited participation. RB Travis Homer (ankle) did not participate for the 2nd day in a row. Final word on these guys ahead of Week 17 vs. the Jets will come tomorrow.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (ankle) did not log practice participation on Wednesday. The same goes for RB Travis Homer (ankle). Fortunately, RB DeeJay Dallas (ankle) managed to participate in a limited fashion. We'll keep an eye on the ankles of the whole Seahawks backfield ahead of Week 17 vs. the Jets.
