Basic Stats Preseason Player 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 had knee surgery this offseason to "get something cleaned up," HC Pete Carroll said Tuesday. Penny isn't participating in minicamp, but the always-optimistic Carroll expects him to be ready for the start of training camp. Penny missed all but 3 games last season after tearing multiple ligaments in his left knee in December of 2019. It's a concern that he's still having issues with that knee. And at this point, it's unclear if he'll regain pre-injury form. Penny is just a late-round dart in fantasy drafts, while RB Chris Carson remains a safe bet for nice volume this season.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Rams. That can only be good news for Chris Carson, after Penny got a near-even work split in Week 17. Look for Carson to re-emerge as the clear backfield leader in today's game. RB DeeJay Dallas is a healthy scratch as well, leaving only Carson and Carlos Hyde in the backfield.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny has been added to the injury report as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Rams with a knee issue. He, of course, just returned a few weeks ago from his December 2019 torn ACL. Penny's absence this weekend would leave Seattle with RBs Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde and DeeJay Dallas -- with Alex Collins potentially being elevated from the practice squad.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is expected to make his 2020 debut against Washington on Sunday, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. It'll be Penny's 1st action since tearing his ACL a little over a year ago. He shouldn't significantly impact RB Chris Carson's volume in this one, but we'll monitor the situation.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that RB Rashaad Penny will practice this week as though he's going to play Sunday at Washington, according to ESPN's Brady Henderson. "We’ll see how that works out and we’ll figure it out at the end of the week," Carroll said, "but he’s going with the mentality that he’s up and eligible." Penny certainly won't be a fantasy option for Week 15 in his 1st game since last December's ACL tear. But his return could affect the playing time of other Seattle RBs.
