Rashaad Penny Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny had knee surgery this offseason to "get something cleaned up," HC Pete Carroll said Tuesday. Penny isn't participating in minicamp, but the always-optimistic Carroll expects him to be ready for the start of training camp. Penny missed all but 3 games last season after tearing multiple ligaments in his left knee in December of 2019. It's a concern that he's still having issues with that knee. And at this point, it's unclear if he'll regain pre-injury form. Penny is just a late-round dart in fantasy drafts, while RB Chris Carson remains a safe bet for nice volume this season.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Rams. That can only be good news for Chris Carson, after Penny got a near-even work split in Week 17. Look for Carson to re-emerge as the clear backfield leader in today's game. RB DeeJay Dallas is a healthy scratch as well, leaving only Carson and Carlos Hyde in the backfield.

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.

Seahawks RB Carlos Hyde has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the 49ers with a non-COVID illness. Rashaad Penny will step in as Seattle's #2 RB, but RB Chris Carson should pick up a few extra touches with Hyde out.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is expected to make his 2020 debut against Washington on Sunday, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. It'll be Penny's 1st action since tearing his ACL a little over a year ago. He shouldn't significantly impact RB Chris Carson's volume in this one, but we'll monitor the situation.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that RB Rashaad Penny will practice this week as though he's going to play Sunday at Washington, according to ESPN's Brady Henderson. "We’ll see how that works out and we’ll figure it out at the end of the week," Carroll said, "but he’s going with the mentality that he’s up and eligible." Penny certainly won't be a fantasy option for Week 15 in his 1st game since last December's ACL tear. But his return could affect the playing time of other Seattle RBs.

Stop us if you've heard this before, but Seahawks HC Pete Carroll is optimistic for RB Rashaad Penny's return from his ACL repair. "I would think he's ahead of schedule for maybe what they could have predicted, maybe the middle of the season," Carroll said Friday on 710 AM ESPN Radio. "I think he's going to push for sooner than that. He's had a great offseason under these circumstances, and he looks really good right now. So hopefully we can expect him to be available maybe not in the next couple of weeks, but not too far off." Penny would be a nice stash -- especially if you have an IR spot available -- within the next few weeks.

The Seahawks placed RB Rashaad Penny (knee) on the reserve/PUP list. That means he's out for at least the first 6 games of the season. This was expected after Penny tore his ACL last December. Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde will open the season as Seattle's top 2 RBs.

The Seahawks placed RB Rashaad Penny (knee) on the active/PUP list. No surprise here. Penny is still rehabbing from last December's torn ACL and is a candidate for the reserve/PUP list, which would cost him the first 6 games of the season. He's only worth considering in fantasy drafts over 20 rounds. Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde figure to open the season as Seattle's top 2 RBs.

The Seahawks have signed RB Carlos Hyde to a 1-year deal. That follows reports that Seattle had offered RB Devonta Freeman a contract, so the team was clearly looking to add to its backfield. Hyde played surprisingly well in Houston last year, averaging 4.4 yards per carry on 245 attempts. He ranked 32nd in Elusive Rating and 10th in Pro Football Focus' rushing grades among 45 RBs with 100+ carries. Hyde is solid insurance behind RBs Chris Carson (hip) and Rashaad Penny (ACL), who are both recovering from serious injuries. Carson is expected to be ready for Week 1, but Penny isn't. We'd expect Hyde to open the season as Seattle's #2 RB, although his arrival does add some downside to Carson's 2020 fantasy outlook.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll implied during a Thursday radio interview that RB Rashaad Penny (ACL) is likely to begin the season on the PUP list, per The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta. "He's doing great but it was a late-season injury," Carroll said. Penny tore his ACL on December 8, giving him 9 months to get ready for Week 1. Landing on PUP would cost him at least the first 6 games of the season -- and turn RB Chris Carson into a workhorse. Carson is rehabbing last December's fractured hip but "will be ready" for the start of the season, according to Carroll.

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.

Seahawks GM John Schneider said that RB Chris Carson should be ready for the start of the season, according to ESPN's Brady Henderson. Carson sustained a season-ending hip fracture on Dec. 22. We'll certainly be watching this progress through the offseason and training camp. Schneider also said he's "less confident" about RB Rashaad Penny being ready in time, according to Henderson. Penny tore the ACL and sustained other damage in his left knee on Dec. 8. If he hobbles through 2020, Seattle might have a tougher decision to make on whether to pick up the 2022 option on his rookie contract. The whole situation carries plenty of risk for early best-ball drafting. Carson sits 16th among RBs in current BestBall10 ADP; RB19 in FFPC drafting.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll admitted that RB Rashaad Penny's availability for the start of the 2020 season is in question. He tore multiple ligaments, including the ACL, in his left knee on December 8. "He’s got six or seven months ahead of him that are going to be really challenging," Carroll said. "We’ll have to wait and see." Penny remains a solid dynasty hold but is just a flier in the double-digit rounds of early best-ball drafts.

The knee injury that ended Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny's season was "more than just a normal ACL" tear, HC Pete Carroll said. Penny is facing an "extensive recovery," Carroll added. A clean ACL tear would have given Penny a decent chance to be ready for the start of the 2020 campaign -- but this news makes that a lot more iffy. We'll keep a close eye on his rehab.
