Most Recent Shark Bites

Seahawks CB D.J. Reed (calf) is active for today’s game against the Titans. Use him as you had planned in IDP lineups.

Seahawks WR D’Wayne Eskridge (concussion) is inactive for today’s game against the Titans. Freddie Swain should again operate as Seattle’s #3 WR behind D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (calf) is inactive for today’s game against the Titans. His absence should mean a few extra touches for RB Chris Carson. RBs DeeJay Dallas, Travis Homer and Alex Collins are active behind Carson.

Seahawks CB D.J. Reed is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. He left Friday's practice early with a foot injury. We'll see about his status come Sunday afternoon.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (calf) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Titans. His absence should mean a few extra touches for RB Chris Carson.

Seahawks WR D’Wayne Eskridge (concussion) is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Titans. The rookie played just 12 snaps in the opener, so there’s minimal fantasy impact here.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny aggravated an existing calf injury Sunday and is expected to be "shut down for a few weeks to fully heal." Don't be surprised if Seattle puts him on IR, which carries a 3-week minimum stay at this point. Penny's absence obviously leaves some opportunity for DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer, but Chris Carson was the only Seattle back to reach 10 snaps in the opener (he played 42). He might get the biggest boost from the Penny injury by virtue of his clear path to a workhorse-level role.

Seahawks WR D'Wayne Eskridge sustained a concussion in Sunday's opener vs. the Colts, HC Pete Carroll said afterward. Eskridge operated as Seattle's #4 WR in that one, catching his only target for 6 yards and carrying twice for 22 yards. He's off the redraft radar for now.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny injured his left calf in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Colts and did not return. HC Pete Carroll said afterward that Penny’s calf was tight and that they decided to hold him out as a precaution. We’ll keep an eye on Seattle’s #2 RB this coming week.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny injured his left calf in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Colts. It's presumably the same calf that had him on this week's injury report. Penny is officially questionable to return.

The Seahawks will "roll with" RB Chris Carson this season, RBs coach Chad Morton said. "That's how it goes." It sure doesn't sound like Seattle plans on deploying a committee backfield this season with depth guys like Rashaad Penny, DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer. Injuries, of course, have been a bugaboo for Carson. But he's averaged over 100 total yards and .76 TDs in healthy games over the last 3 seasons. That's RB1 production. Carson is worth considering in the back half of Round 3 -- and is a steal in the 4th round of fantasy drafts.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett is dealing with a groin injury. He’s been held out of team drills over the past 3 days, per beat writer Gregg Bell. HC Pete Carroll said the team is just being “careful” with the veteran WR. There’s no cause for concern right now; the groin is simply something to monitor.

Seahawks WR D'Wayne Eskridge (toe) was activated from the PUP list and made his training camp debut on Tuesday. The rookie also missed minicamp with this toe injury, so he has a lot of catching up to do. We'll see how much ground he can make up over the next few weeks, but Eskridge won't be an early-season fantasy option.

The Seahawks have agreed to a 4-year extension with S Jamal Adams. The deal holds a maximum value of $72 million, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, with $38 million fully guaranteed. Adams has been in camp but sitting out practices. This deal should return him to full action. We haven't moved Adams down our DB rankings at all.

Seahawks S Jamal Adams has been sitting out training-camp practices amid a stalemate in negotiations on his contract extension. But eternal optimist HC Pete Carroll doesn't expect that to carry over into the regular season. “Oh, I’m not even thinking about that at all,” Carroll told The Seattle Times this week. “I don’t know. I can’t even imagine that.” We'll see about Adams as the regular season draws closer.

The Seattle Times reports that the Seahawks plan to utilize TEs more in the new offense. Not surprisingly, HC Pete Carroll sounds excited about what the team has there. "The tight end spot is really competitive because we don't know who's going to take the bulk of the plays," Carroll says. "We really like the position a lot. We're really fired up about Gerald Everett. We really think he can do a ton, but we're not sure how to mix those guys yet. We've got to find that out as we go through. Colby Parkinson looks exciting too for playing time, and we know Will's in there. So it's a really nice, competitive spot." We're betting on Everett as the lead receiver here for his familiarity with new OC Shane Waldron -- from their time with the Rams -- and receiving ability. The situation will be worth watching through summer, though.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny is currently at 223 pounds, his lightest weight since high school. Penny played in the 230s dating back to his time at San Diego State. "He looks great," HC Pete Carroll said Wednesday. "He worked out here all throughout the offseason, and it really paid off. The best he's looked since we've seen him.” John Boyle of the team’s official site observed Penny looking “faster and more explosive” than he did in 2020. It’s a nice first step for the oft-injured RB as he looks to secure the #2 job behind Chris Carson. As the RB55 in FFPC best balls, Penny’s a fine late-round flier.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny is not on the active PUP list to open training camp. He had a clean-up knee surgery this offseason and missed spring workouts -- but he's evidently ready to hit the field now. A healthy Penny remains the clear favorite for the #2 RB job in Seattle. We'll see if he can dodge the injury bug this season.

A foot injury has landed Seahawks WR D'Wayne Eskridge on the active PUP list to open training camp. The rookie missed time this spring with a toe issue. It's unclear if this new injury is related. Regardless, it's a less-than-ideal start to Eskridge's pro career. He has a shot to win Seattle's #3 WR job this year but needs to get on the field.

Seahawks S Jamal Adams has reported for the beginning of training camp. Whether he would do so was in question as the star safety and the team remain locked in negotiations on a long-term contract. But IDP fantasy players need not worry about Adams' status.
