Basic StatsRashaad Penny's Preseason Player Analysis

View RB Fantasy Rankings »
What You Need to Know:
  • Penny was the best and most productive RB in the NFL over the final 5 weeks of last season.
    • He led 61 qualifying RBs in Pro Football Focus’ rushing grades and ranked 2nd to only Michael Carter in Elusive Rating.
    • He racked up 671 rushing yards – 208 more than any other player.
    • Penny ranked 4th with 92 carries over that span and tied for 1st league-wide with 6 rushing scores.
    • He scored 11.7 more PPR points and 20.7 more non-PPR points than any other RB.
    • It’s worth noting that Penny faced a relatively weak slate of run defenses over that stretch. His opponents ranked 22nd, 5th, 24th, 31st and 6th in Football Outsiders’ run defense DVOA and 29th, 12th, 17th, 27th and 13th in fantasy points allowed to RBs.
  • Penny was largely disappointing through his first 3-and-a-half NFL seasons.
    • He dealt with finger, knee, hamstring, knee and calf injuries.
    • He topped 12 carries in just 2 of his first 32 games.
  • Penny was effective when he was healthy, though, averaging 4.8 yards per carry and scoring 5 times on 188 attempts over those first 32 games.
  • Seattle took him with the 27th overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft after Penny ran for 2,248 yards and 23 TDs as a senior at San Diego State.
  • The Seahawks allowed Penny to hit the free-agent market this offseason but eventually re-signed him to a 1-year, $5.75 million deal with a little more than $5 million guaranteed.
  • Seattle drafted Kenneth Walker with the 41st overall pick of this year’s draft.
    • Walker didn’t do much in 2 seasons at Wake Forest but exploded for 1,636 yards and 18 TDs on 6.2 yards per carry at Michigan State last year.
    • Walker goes 5’9, 211 pounds and earned a 92nd percentile Relative Athletic Score at the Combine.
    • By comparison, Penny goes 5’11, 220 pounds and registered a 73rd percentile RAS.
  • HC Pete Carroll was already talking up a committee backfield in May. Seattle still has RBs Chris Carson, Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas on the roster.
    • "We like playing multiple guys, and we don’t have any problem with that at all," Carroll said. "I’ve said it to you a million times. I’m fine going with who is hot. But also, we have to find a way to keep our guys healthy. That’s why the rotation is so important, so we don’t overwork them, particularly early in the year, so we can keep the good momentum building."
  • The Seahawks will be dealing with a massive QB downgrade this season after trading Russell Wilson to Denver. They’re left with QBs Drew Lock and Geno Smith.
  • OC Shane Waldron returns for his 2nd season with the Seahawks.
    • The 2021 Seahawks ranked:
      • 32nd in plays
      • 9th in situation-neutral run rate
      • 27th in pass attempts
  • The 2021 Seahawks ranked 17th in Pro Football Focus’ run-blocking grades and 14th in Football Outsiders’ Adjusted Line Yards.
    • They spent the 9th overall pick of this spring’s draft on Charles Cross, who’s expected to start at LT.
  • The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta believes Rashaad Penny will be the Seahawks' "starter and the primary back."
  •'s Corbin K. Smith reports that Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny "showed up for camp in peak condition."
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

After 3-and-a-half mostly disappointing seasons to open his NFL career, Penny showed the skills that made him a 2018 1st-round pick over the final 5 games of last season. He led all RBs in PPR and non-PPR points during that stretch.

Penny and 2nd-round rookie Kenneth Walker will duke it out for snaps and touches this summer. But this is likely to be a committee backfield, with Chris Carson, Travis Homer and/or DeeJay Dallas also potentially involved. And it’ll be a bad offense without QB Russell Wilson.

That has Penny looking like just a bench stash on fantasy rosters – unless he handily beats out Walker.

Rashaad Penny, RB SEA

Rashaad Penny out for the season

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll confirmed Monday that RB Rashaad Penny needs season-ending surgery. He broke his fibula and damaged his tibia in the loss to the Saints. It's another tough break for a guy who's struggled with a plethora of injuries over the past 5 seasons. Penny will turn 27 in February and is scheduled to hit free agency in March. His absence leaves 2nd-round rookie Kenneth Walker as Seattle's clear lead back. We'll see how much passing-game work he's able to garner. But rushing production alone should make him at least a weekly RB2 in fantasy lineups.
