Travis Homer, RB CHI

Seahawks place Travis Homer on COVID list

The Seahawks on Sunday placed RB Travis Homer on the COVID list. He joins Alex Collins there. It's not clear how significant a role either guy would have in this week's game, given the fluidity of Seattle's RB depth chart in recent weeks. But missing 2 components can only help Rashaad Penny, if you're planning to use him.

Seahawks RB Adrian Peterson will not play against the Texans on Sunday due to a lower-back injury, HC Pete Carroll said. Peterson never appeared on this week's injury report because he's on the practice squad. With RB Travis Homer out, Seattle is down to RBs Rashaad Penny, Alex Collins and DeeJay Dallas. Carroll said Penny will be a "big part" of the game plan this week. He looks like the best fantasy bet here, but this is still a backfield to try to avoid.

Seahawks RB Travis Homer (calf, hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Texans. RB Alex Collins (abdomen) isn’t listed on the final injury report, so he should play after missing last week. But it’s completely unclear how snaps and touches will be divvied between Collins, Adrian Peterson, Rashaad Penny and DeeJay Dallas. Despite the plus matchup, you’re better off avoiding this backfield.
