Penny's rookie season got off to a rough start when a broken finger during training camp all but cemented Chris Carson's position atop the depth chart. Perhaps more troubling than Penny's inability to win the starting job was his failure to beat out Mike Davis for the team's No. 2 role. Fortunately for Penny, Davis signed with Chicago, vacating 112 carries and 42 targets from a year ago. Carson offers zilch as a pass-catcher, which points to Penny at least picking up more snaps on passing downs, but there are also reasons to think he can make a year-two leap. Penny's 4.9 yards per attempt average as a rookie led all Seahawks running backs. And he flashed the star potential that made him a first-round draft pick when he rushed for 108 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries when Carson was sidelined against the Rams in November. If he's pressed into a starting role, Penny has win-your-league upside, making him an excellent running back target in the mid-to-late rounds of fantasy drafts. (May 5)

Latest News

Seahawks | Rashaad Penny falling behind (Wed Aug 21, 01:19 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny has 13 yards on 12 carries in two preseason games, and he has fallen further behind RB Chris Carson, in the opinion of NBC Sports Northwest's Joe Fann. Head coach Pete Carroll backed Penny by saying: 'We've got to block for him better. He didn't have a chance.'

Our View: Penny is just an injury handcuff at this point. He might not even be worth taking over the hot rookie running backs on draft boards who have more paths to value.

Seahawks | Rashaad Penny eyeing bigger Year 2 role (Tue Aug 20, 03:54 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny has routinely flashed the ability to 'make one-handed grabs with the same ease as some of the NFL's stickiest-fingered receivers' and is expected to be a bigger factor than he was during his rookie season, according to ESPN's Brady Henderson.

Our View: A first-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft, Penny didn't stand out as much as expected during his rookie season. Penny echoed sentiments from Seahawks RB coach Chad Morton that he and Chris Carson can become the same kind of one-two punch the New Orleans Saints enjoyed with Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram over the last two seasons.
