2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
With Chris Carson being the proven starter in the offense, Rashaad Penny has to be considered simply an upside play in this Seattle offense. Penny did not touch the ball often enough to be a meaningful fantasy contributor in his rookie season and that may very well be the case again this season. While his athletic measurables would seem to indicate that he'd be a capable pass catcher out of the backfield, the truth is that Russell Wilson simply doesn't pass to his running backs very often. No back in a Russell Wilson NFL offense has ever reached 40 receptions in a season and it's unlikely that Penny - or any of the backs currently rostered - can reach that number here in 2019.

With passing game contributions being essentially a non-factor, Penny's best chance of being a fantasy producer in 2019 really comes in the form of an injury to Carson. It'd be hard to classify Penny as a strict handcuff considering that he does have the potential to take over the role if Carson struggles, but the chances of him being an early-season contributor are very slim.

The upside with Penny is that he is almost certainly the more physically talented player between him and Carson, so Seattle may end up handing him the keys to the backfield at some point this season. In that case, Penny does have low-end RB1 upside, or at least solid RB2 potential in an offense that's led by a quarterback who's as efficient as Wilson is. He'd have serious touchdown upside attached to a heavy workload if he became Seattle's starter, which is absolutely within his range of outcomes this season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Rashaad Penny ready to return in Week 5
Hamstring strain cost him two games
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 30, 4:45 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Carroll says again that Rashaad Penny "will be ready to go this week." Says he had a hamstring strain. (Seattle Times - Bob Condotta)

FFToday's Take: Seattle plays on Thursday, so the Seahawks were likely trying to play it smart in Week 4 against a beatable opponent (the Arizona Cardinals) and make sure Penny didn't have to play two games in five days. The second-year back will return to his 1B role behind Chris Carson and could be a reasonable flex option against a defense that has coughed up five rushing touchdowns already, including two in Week 4 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.


Injury Rashaad Penny misses practice Wednesday
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 25, 7:00 pm

Seattle Seahawks
So Rashaad Penny didn't practice today after all. Pete Carroll initially was looking to Thursday as the day when Penny (hamstring) may get back then said this afternoon that he would practice today. He didn't, per the team's injury report. Ziggy Ansah (back) was limited. (Brady Henderson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Penny injured his hamstring in practice last Friday and ended up missing Week 3. Chris Carson promptly went out and continued his fumbling ways making his usage a bit sketchy for Week 4. However, Penny will need to be practice this week and be active for the game against Arizona or Carson would likely be given another opportunity as the lead back.


Injury Rashaad Penny not expected to play Week 3
Hamstring injury on Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 22, 7:15 am

Seattle Seahawks
Seahawks’ RB Rashaad Penny, who strained his hamstring during practice on Friday, is not expected to play Sunday vs. the Saints, per source. His injury is not considered serious, but Seahawks want to be careful with Penny. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Penny came up lame in practice on Friday and will now miss Sunday's game against the Bills. Chris Carson should be in for a full workload with C.J. Prosise sprinkled in.


Injury Rashaad Penny questionable with hamstring injury
Gametime decision
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 20, 6:00 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Receiver David Moore has been given the okay to play for the first time this season. Seattle could play Sunday without two players who suffered injuries this week in practice - cornerback Tre Flowers and running back Rashaad Penny. Each were officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s game - Flowers with an ankle injury that occurred Thursday and Penny with a hamstring injury. (Seattle Times)

FFToday's Take: If Penny sits, Chris Carson could get more looks on Sunday at home against the Brown making him a low-end RB1 option in Week 3. C.J. Prosise would fill the backup role but be off the fantasy radar in most leagues.
