Week 11: vs Green Bay Packers

All RB vs GB

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Welcome to fantasy relevance Rashaad Penny, at least for one week. In the absence of Chris Carson, it was a split backfield last week between the rookie Penny and Mike Davis with Penny as the star of the show on the ground. Penny had looked sluggish in every outing leading into last week, even warming the bench as a healthy scratch in a couple of those games. Last week, however, Penny more than doubled his rushing yardage total from any other week while also scoring his first career touchdown, appearing to have shifted into another gear as he ran very well despite the talented Rams defense. Mike Davis got the start last week and also looked sharp averaging over five yards per carry, but his role may begin to shrink with the emergence of their first-round pick and expected return of Chris Carson. Russell Wilson has also started to pick up his ground game, especially last week as he amassed a season-high 91 rushing yards from a combination of scrambles and designed running plays. After rushing for more than 20 yards just once in his first five games, Wilson is now averaging 42 rushing yards per game over his last four outings. With the Seahawks continuing to employ a run-first approach, it will be interesting to see where this backfield goes once Carson returns from his hip injury. He was a game-time decision last week, but reports indicate he will be ready to suit up in this one. While Carson should lead this backfield when healthy, the emergence of Penny alongside an effective Mike Davis could yield to more of a committee approach that would make this backfield one to be cautious with for fantasy purposes. The Packers had another poor showing in run defense last week as they allowed the veteran Frank Gore to average over six yards per carry for 90 rushing yards with the Dolphins totaling 131 rushing yards on the day. On the season, Green Bay ranks as a below average run defense allowing just over 120 rushing yards per game and the 11th most rushing yards per game to running backs. They have allowed over 80 rushing yards to a running back in over half of their games, including three of their last four outings. This defensive line has plenty of talent on the interior, but they have weaknesses on the outside with Clay Matthews acting as a pure pass rusher while Nick Perry is actually banged up and questionable to play. Speaking of injuries, the Packers had three defensive backs exit early with injuries last week. It appears safety Kentrell Brice will miss this week in addition to three cornerbacks all with questionable statuses coming off the short week. With the strength of Seattle's offensive line more on the outside at tackle than on the interior, look for some zone runs to the edges as they try to take advantage of what could be shoddy tackling from the Packers this week given their injuries and struggles against the run.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 2 vs CHI (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 22 / 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.
