Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said RB Rashaad Penny will "get the first shots" in the backfield. "He deserves it, he's earned it," Carroll said of Penny. Carroll was also quick to mention RB Chris Carson, though. "If we can get [Penny] and Chris back and battling, that one-two punch is all I could hope for," Carroll said. Seattle gave Penny a 1-year, $5.75 million deal with a little over $5 million fully guaranteed in free agency after his huge finish to 2021. That, of course, followed 3 mostly disappointing seasons to open his pro career. Penny is the ultimate risk/reward pick in early fantasy drafts -- but he's reasonably priced at a RB30 ADP in FFPC drafts.
Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (shoulder) did not practice on Wednesday. He seemed to make it out of last weekend's big game unscathed, so this might just be more of a rest day. But Penny, of course, has had trouble staying healthy throughout his career. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.
Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny racked up 151 yards and 2 TDs on 17 carries in Sunday's victory over the Lions. Penny scored from 36 and 41 yards out in the 2nd half of a game that saw him run for just 8 yards on 5 carries in the 1st half. Rookie RB Kenneth Walker saw about half the playing time and garnered exactly half as many opportunities (18-9). Penny gets what should be a tougher draw in the New Orleans defense in Week 5.
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 Rashaad Penny (COVID) returned to practice on Tuesday. He missed the required 5 days but remains on track to open the season as Seattle's lead back.
Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny is sidelined with COVID, HC Pete Carroll said Thursday. Penny isn't experiencing any symptoms and should be back "in a day or so," Carroll said. We'll see when Penny is cleared, but this shouldn't impact his 2022 fantasy outlook.
