Basic Stats Full Player Fantasy Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Penny has struggled with injuries over his first 3 NFL seasons.
    • He missed 2 games in 2018 with a knee injury. He was also sidelined for part of August that year after breaking the pointer finger on his left hand.
    • A hamstring injury cost him 3 games early in the 2019 season. Then he tore multiple ligaments, including the ACL, in his left knee in Week 14.
    • That knee injury had him sidelined until Week 15 of this past season. Penny played sparingly in the final 3 regular-season games but missed Seattle’s Wild Card loss to the Rams with more knee trouble.
  • So Penny has carried just 161 times across 27 games over the last 3 years. He sports a career 5.1 yards per carry -- but he managed just 3.1 on his 34 carries this past season.
  • The Seahawks declined the 5th-year option on Penny’s rookie contract this offseason. He’s back with the team for 2021 but is set to hit free agency next year.
  • Seattle also re-signed RB Chris Carson to a 2-year, $10.4 million deal with $5.5 million guaranteed. The contract makes him the league’s 14th-highest-paid RB in terms of average annual salary and makes him the heavy favorite to return as lead back.
  • Carson has dealt with plenty of injuries of his own as a pro, missing 7 games over the past 3 seasons. But he’s been super effective when on the field, averaging 4.6 yards per carry and grading well in Pro Football Focus metrics.
  • Seahawks RBs other than Carson have totaled 204, 118 and 175 carries, respectively, the past 3 seasons.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Penny needs to prove that he can stay healthy before we can consider him a viable fantasy option. Even then, he’ll probably need a Chris Carson injury to come into bankable value.

Carson, of course, has missed time in all 4 of his NFL seasons. So Penny does carry some intrigue as a later-round handcuff pick.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. He should be available for this weekend's game vs. the 49ers just to muddy up Seattle's backfield a bit more. It's a situation to avoid in fantasy lineups.

Seahawks RBs Rashaad Penny (hamstring) and Travis Homer (calf) are out for Monday night's game vs. Washington. HC Pete Carroll said Saturday that rookie RB Josh Johnson might be promoted from the practice squad, but RBs Alex Collins and DeeJay Dallas will handle the majority of the backfield work.

As expected, the Seahawks have activated RB Rashaad Penny from IR. That makes him available to play against the Saints tonight. We certainly expect him to factor into the backfield work. Penny would get an upside boost if Alex Collins turns up inactive. He's questionable with a groin injury, but HC Pete Carroll said after Saturday's practice that Collins "looked good today, so he's ready to go," according to the team website. We'd bet on Collins leading the backfield tonight after he performed surprisingly well at Pittsburgh.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (calf) was designated to return from IR on Friday. He's now eligible to play vs. the Saints on Monday night -- and it sounds like he will. “I’m ready to go. I’m revved up. I’m excited,” Penny said. “I’m still young. I’m fresh. And I’m ready to go, and now’s the chance for me to show it.” OC Shane Waldron, meanwhile, said Penny returned from his calf injury in "great shape." He might step right into a significant role on Monday night with RB Alex Collins dealing with a groin injury.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that RB Rashaad Penny (calf) will be "back to full speed" this week, according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times. That sure makes it sound like Penny will at least be in the mix to play against the Saints on Monday night. We'll see about his official activation from IR and his practice participation throughout the week. Injuries to Chris Carson and Alex Collins present opportunity and further muddy the backfield outlook for Seattle.
