Shark Bites

We know that RBs Ken Walker and Rashaad Penny will duke it out for early-down work in the Seahawks' backfield this season. But The Athletic's Michael-Shawn Dugar believes passing downs will go to either DeeJay Dallas or Travis Homer. "Dallas is arguably the best pass-catching running back on the roster and Homer, who is in the final year of his rookie deal, is the best pass protector among the tailbacks," Dugar writes. It makes some sense considering neither Walker nor Penny is an accomplished pass-catcher. A 3-man committee backfield in a bad offense behind a bad offensive line sounds like a nightmare fantasy scenario.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (shoulder) is active for today’s game vs. the Steelers. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that the team is concerned about Walker’s shoulder after he reinjured it last week. He comes with elevated risk in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

Seahawks RB Ken Walker (shoulder, illness) is expected to play vs. the Steelers today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. "But the team also has some concerns about a shoulder injury that was aggravated last Sunday at Tennessee," Schefter adds. It sounds like there's some risk that Walker's touches are scaled back today, or that the shoulder issue knocks him out of this game. We're moving Walker down the Week 17 RB Rankings a bit.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (shoulder) only got in a limited practice on Friday this week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Steelers. He was in the same boat last week, but HC Pete Carroll said then that Walker would play vs. Tennessee. This Friday, he labeled Walker a game-time decision. We'll hopefully get an update on his status on Sunday morning. Seattle's inactives won't come out until a little after 2:30 pm ET. Walker's absence would turn RB Zach Charbonnet into a solid fantasy starter.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker handled 16 of 19 team carries in Sunday's win over Tennessee. That’s strong volume, considering Walker's missed practices and questionable status (ankle) entering the weekend. Still, he managed just 3.4 YPC while matching Zach Charbonnet in targets (2). Walker’s now caught exactly 1 pass in five of his past seven matchups. Week 17 turns up a Steelers matchup that’s slightly favorable.

Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker (shoulder) is active for today’s game vs. the Titans. He was listed as questionable after only getting in a limited practice on Friday, but we never sensed much concern about his availability for this one. Walker is safe to get into fantasy lineups against a banged-up Tennessee defense.
