Rashaad Penny Fantasy Football News 2019

Seahawks RB Chris Carson participated in the 1st training camp practice on Thursday. He spent the offseason recovering from knee surgery but took the first rep in 11 on 11 drills. We'll keep a close eye on his battle with 2nd-year man Rashaad Penny.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny has shed some weight this offseason, currently tipping the scales at 230 pounds. Conditioning was a problem for him at times during his rookie season, but it doesn't sound like that'll be an issue in 2019. Penny has reportedly impressed in spring workouts, while RB Chris Carson has been sidelined after knee surgery. We're still projecting Carson to lead this backfield in carries this year, but there's room for Penny to tally 150+ attempts in Seattle's run-heavy attack.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll called RBs Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny "a one-two punch" heading into 2019. That's not what we saw last year, when Carson maintained clear lead duties throughout the season. But Penny showed well in limited action, averaging 4.9 yards per carry. And Seattle thought highly enough of him to select him 27th overall last spring. "I don’t know who’s one and who’s two, it doesn’t matter to me. I thought both guys did a really good job this year," Carroll said from the Combine on Thursday. "They’re good football players and we love what they bring. They’re not the same, their running style are different, but there’s plenty of room for both of those guys, so I’m excited for both of them.” The touch distribution in Seattle's backfield will be a big fantasy storyline as we get into summertime.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. He could see an increased workload if Seattle wants to get Chris Carson some rest heading into the playoffs. But Penny should still be considered just a RB3 or flex flier.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. He put in a full week of practice and should play. Penny has been getting a handful of carries behind Chris Carson but could see more work in the finale with the Seahawks having little to play for.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Chiefs. That should mean a few extra carries for RB Chris Carson.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Chiefs. HC Pete Carroll labeled him a game-time decision on Friday. Penny shouldn’t be in your fantasy plans, and his return would be just a slight ding to RB Chris Carson’s fantasy value.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the 49ers. The rookie has averaged 6.8 carries over the past 4 weeks, so his absence is a slight boost to RB Chris Carson’s volume projection.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (ankle) is active for tonight's game against the Vikings. He figures to work in for a handful of touches behind lead back Chris Carson.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (ankle) is questionable for Monday night's game against the Vikings. He wasn't on the injury report on Thursday or Friday -- then he was added on Saturday but listed as a full participant in practice. We'll look for an update on the rookie's status, but he shouldn't be in your Week 14 fantasy plans.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson injured his finger in the 4th quarter of Sunday’s game against the 49ers. He headed back to the locker room for x-rays. We’ll pass along an update on Carson when we get one. His absence would leave Seattle’s backfield to Rashaad Penny and Mike Davis.

Update: HC Pete Carroll said after the game that Carson dislocated his index finger. He got it stitched up and is expected to be fine.

Seahawks OC Brian Schottenheimer said Tuesday that RB Chris Carson will start Thursday night's game against the Packers. That means absolutely nothing other than Carson being on the field for Seattle's first offensive snap. But Carson was operating as the clear lead ball-carrier before missing most of Week 9 and all of Week 10 with a hip injury. Consider him the best bet for carries on Thursday night, but RBs Mike Davis and Rashaad Penny also figure to remain plenty involved.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is on track to return for Thursday night's game against the Packers, HC Pete Carroll said. Carson has been operating as Seattle's lead back but will now need to contend with rookie Rashaad Penny's breakout Week 10 -- in addition to Mike Davis. The crowd leaves all 3 of these guys as risk/reward RB3s for Week 11.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is inactive for today’s game against the Rams. Mike Davis should serve as Seattle’s lead back and is an upside RB2 in fantasy lineups. RBs Rashaad Penny and C.J. Prosise are also active for the ‘Hawks.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Chargers. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited again in Friday’s practice. “A little groin thing he's feeling,” HC Pete Carroll said Friday. “Just got to make sure on gameday he's feeling okay.” The 4:05 pm ET kickoff here makes this a tricky situation. We’ll look for an update on Carson’s status Sunday morning. If he can’t go, Mike Davis would be a better fantasy bet than Rashaad Penny.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that Mike Davis has earned a spot in the team's RB "rotation." That'd be alongside Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny. Unless Carson misses more time with his hip injury, this will be a backfield to avoid in Week 5.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is inactive for today's game game against the Cardinals. That leaves rookie Rashaad Penny as Seattle’s likely lead back — and a RB3 or flex in fantasy lineups.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hand) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He'll play in Sunday's opener against the Broncos but will be behind at least Chris Carson in the pecking order. RB C.J. Prosise also figures to be in the mix. Penny shouldn’t be in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hand) put in a full practice on Wednesday. He's on track to play in this weekend's opener against the Broncos but will be firmly behind RB Chris Carson in the pecking order. Penny isn't a Week 1 fantasy option but should be rostered in all leagues.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny got the cast removed from his injured finger on Wednesday, HC Pete Carroll said. "We'll see," Carroll replied when asked if Penny would play in Seattle's preseason finale on Thursday night. We'd be surprised to see the rookie out there, but he does appear on track to be available for Week 1. Penny won't be a fantasy option for that one but is still capable of earning a significant role in this backfield throughout the season. He's gone in the 7th round of 12-team PPR drafts over the past week.
