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."
  • SI.com'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.

Kenneth Walker, RB SEA

7:50pm EDT 9/16/22

Walker not on final Week 2 injury report

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (hernia) is not listed on the final Week 2 injury report. He put in full practices on Wednesday and Friday and a limited workout on Thursday. Walker is ready to make his NFL debut vs. the 49ers this weekend, although we’re expecting him to work behind RB Rashaad Penny.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (hernia) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. That puts him on track to play vs. the 49ers this weekend. Walker figures to play well behind RB Rashaad Penny in his NFL debut, so he's not a recommended Week 2 fantasy play. But the talented rookie could quickly earn a significant role and should be rostered in leagues of 10+ teams.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Tuesday that RB Kenneth Walker (hernia) will play in this weekend's game vs. the 49ers. We'll wait to see if Walker gets on the practice field this week before adding him to the Week 2 Rankings. If Walker plays, he figures to debut as the clear #2 RB behind Rashaad Penny.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny handled 12 of 13 team RB carries and all 3 RB targets in a Week 1 win over Denver. Note that rookie Kenneth Walker sat this one out with a hernia. Penny, meanwhile, proved efficient with 5.0 yards per carry, but he did fumble after getting stripped at the end of a 26-yard gain. (Wisely, he wasn't benched.) All in all, it was an encouraging showing from a guy that took the league by storm late last year. We'll see if Walker’s able to return to practice this week.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (hernia) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Broncos. He was listed as questionable but didn't practice all week. We're not counting on Walker making it back for Week 2 but will monitor his progress. RB Rashaad Penny should handle the vast majority of early-down work tonight. RBs DeeJay Dallas and/or Travis Homer figure to steal pass-catching work.

Dynasty Write-up
It took nearly 4 years, but Penny finally broke out over the 2nd half of the 2021 season. He re-signed with Seattle on a 1-year deal ... then watched the team draft Kenneth Walker in Round 2. We'll see how the backfield shakes out this season. Penny will hit free agency next winter at 27 years old.
