Shark Bites

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said RB Rashaad Penny is resting a slight hamstring issue. We’d typically avoid posting about a minor injury in May, but we’re talking about Rashaad Penny here. If he misses significant time in OTAs, we’ll let you know. Following the addition of Kenneth Walker, Penny looks like just a depth option in fantasy.

Recent Shark Bites

SI.com's Corbin K. Smith reports that Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny "showed up for camp in peak condition." The RB reportedly credits running sprints in the sand for "his improved conditioning and health," particularly in his surgically repaired knee and hamstrings. We'll see what comes of further camp reports on Penny and then any preseason action. But signs have pointed to the late-2021 stud getting 1st shot to lead this year's backfield in touches -- ahead of 2nd-round rookie Kenneth Walker.

The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta believes Rashaad Penny will be the Seahawks' "starter and the primary back." Condotta goes on to throw out a (ridiculous) 20-carry-per-game projection for Penny, adding that RB Kenneth Walker will get "most of the rest" of the carries. It's much more opinion than report, so we're not adjusting our projections for Seattle's backfield just yet. But it'll be a situation worth watching closely in training camp and preseason action.

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.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that the Seahawks have agree to a 1-year deal, $5.75 million deal with RB Rashaad Penny — with another $750,000 available via incentives. Penny exploded late last season when thrust into the lead role. If Chris Carson is all the way back from the neck injury that required surgery, we’ll likely be looking at some level of workload split here. We’ll watch reports on the situation as we move toward training camp

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll told reporters Wednesday in Indianapolis that RB Rashaad Penny wants to re-sign with Seattle and that the team wants him back. "His confidence just soared," Carroll said, referring to Penny's late-2021 breakout. "Hopefully we can get him back." Penny is set to hit unrestricted free agency later this month. Seattle still has Chris Carson, DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer under contract at the position -- with Darwin Thompson and Josh Johnson currently on board as well. We'll see what happens here. Penny currently sits in mid-to-low RB3 territory in best-ball ADP.
