Rashaad Penny Fantasy Football News 2020

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.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny tore his left ACL in Sunday night's loss to the Rams, HC Pete Carroll announced Monday. That obviously ends Penny's season, and the timing could challenge his readiness for the start of 2020. We'll see about his progress over the summer. The injury makes RB Chris Carson an even clearer workhorse for upside matchups with Carolina and Arizona the next 2 weeks. C.J. Prosise was the only other Seattle back to play against the Rams, and he garnered just 1 touch.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny hurt his left knee in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Rams and was quickly ruled out. That usually suggests a serious injury. We'll update Penny's status when we learn more. His absence turns Chris Carson back into an every-down back.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll suggested Monday that RB Rashaad Penny will remain involved going forward. He took on an increased role in the win over the Eagles and capitalized with 129 yards and a score on 14 carries. "Chris [Carson] is a guy who is a big part of our team and we’ll do everything we can (for him)," Carroll said. "Competition is a beautiful thing and no reason not to get (Penny) back in there next week. We'll get those guys hammering away." Note that after Carson's lost fumble on Sunday -- his 4th of the season -- Penny out-carried Carson 5 to 0. We'll look for more clues on what this backfield will look like going forward, but we'll probably just be guessing how carries will be split in next Monday night's game against the Vikings.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) isn’t listed on the Week 7 injury report. He figures to see a handful of touches behind RB Chris Carson in Sunday’s game against the Ravens but isn’t a realistic fantasy option.

12:10pm EDT 10/13/19

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) is inactive for today's game against the Browns. C.J. Prosise will step back in as Seattle's #2 RB -- but Chris Carson should be in for another monster workload.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (shoulder) isn't listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He was added on Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. He's safe to keep in fantasy lineups for Sunday's game against the Browns. RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) is listed as questionable, despite putting in full practices all week. We'll check on his status Sunday morning.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) isn't listed on the final Week 5 injury report and will return for Thursday night's game against the Rams.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that he expects RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) to return for Thursday night's game against the Rams. Penny was listed as a full participant on Monday's practice report -- although Seattle didn't actually practice. We'll see what he's able to do when the team actually does hit the field on Tuesday. Penny will return to a #2 role behind Chris Carson, who bounced back in a big way in Week 4.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Cardinals. That again leaves the backfield to Chris Carson and C.J. Prosise.

He sat out Wednesday's practice, was limited on Thursday and a full participant on Friday. HC Pete Carroll said Friday afternoon that Penny has a "good chance" to play vs. Arizona. He's not much of a Week 4 fantasy option, but his return would add risk to Chris Carson's outlook.
