Week 3: vs Dallas Cowboys

All RB vs DAL

FBG says: Tough matchup. The Seahawks rushing attack is an absolute mess at the moment, as the team moved Chris Carson to special teams during the game last week due to in-game injuries to special team players. Carson has been the team's most effective running back this season as Rashaad Penny looks slow and has been ineffective so far. A big part of this has been the offensive line which has really struggled so far this season often being overmatched looking like turnstiles last week against the Bears defensive line. The Cowboys defense shut down Saquon Barkley against the run last week. Barkley averaged just 2.5 yards per carry including a goal-line rush in which Barkley was stopped for a loss of six yards on the play. This is a unit that while they have not faced a great offensive line yet as they played Carolina and the New York Giants goes up against another weak offensive line this week in Seattle. While the defensive line is not the most talented in the league, all it has to do is to keep blockers off of Sean Lee and the linebacking group who are much better against the run than they are in coverage.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 2 vs CHI (10 / 30 / 0 rush, 2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

It seems they want to get Penny the ball, as he took over the lead duties in the second half. He didn't look entirely out of place, but also didn't exactly spark the team in the process. It was evident that he brings some speed to the table, but he was unable to break free or catch a ball to truly display his talents in that department. On one play, he was targeted on an incomplete checkdown pass and was simply not on the same page with Wilson as the quarterback tried to feed him a leading pass away from the defender. There were a few positive moments. He found a seam on one inside run, gaining ten, which showed what he can do when he finds a little bit of room; and almost made good on a cutback away from the called play (once it was clear he was going nowhere), but couldn't quite get free and settled for a gain of six. Overall, the game simply looked faster than Penny right now. He missed most of training camp, and so it's possible that he's not only getting up to speed, but the coaches are still figuring out how to use him.

2018 Week 1 vs DEN (7 / 8 / 0 rush, 5 / 4 / 35 / 0 rec)

Penny's numbers may not tell the tale here. He looked very good in space - catching the ball and running outside - but, did not really impress when given the ball between the tackles. The key takeaway 's here are simply that he looked healthy - and dangerous at times. After sitting out much of the pre-season with an injury, he may need some time to get up to game speed. The numbers here say he put up a dud, but the Seahawks clearly want to get him the ball, so he's one to keep an eye on in the coming weeks.

Seahawks | Rashaad Penny gets more carries (Mon Sep 17, 11:21 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny rushed 10 times for 30 yards in Week 2 against the Chicago Bears on Monday, Sept. 17 and he did not have a catch on two targets.

Seahawks | Chris Carson the clear lead back (Tue Sep 11, 06:39 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson 'really took the lead' ahead of fellow RB Rashaad Penny in Week 1, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Carroll added that Penny 'looked a little rusty' but that they'll find ways to keep using him.

Our View: Carson is the lead back for now. Penny, the team's first-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft, played just as many offensive snaps (25) as Carson did against the Broncos in Week 1. It may not be long before Penny takes over as the lead back for Seattle.

Seahawks | Chris Carson shares time in Week 1 (Mon Sep 10, 01:32 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny each saw 44 percent of the team's snaps and ran 12 routes in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos. Penny finished with one more offensive touch (11) than Carson (10).

Our View: Carson is the starter but Penny is going to get a large share of the workload...then perhaps eventually take over. Penny, a first-round pick out of San Diego State in the 2018 NFL draft, has elusiveness for a 220 pound back. He can be used effectively as a runner and receiver out of the backfield.
