Seattle Seahawks running backs Rashaad Penny (hamstring) and Travis Homer (calf) are active for Sunday's game against the 49ers, though Adrian Peterson is expected to take on the lead-back role with Alex Collins (abdomen) ruled out. Because of that, it's tough to trust either Penny or Homer this week, especially since DeeJay Dallas could also be in the mix. There might be some upside for Penny as the presumed No. 2 back, but the safest option might be to keep the Seahawks backs on your fantasy bench.
Seattle Seahawks running backs Rashaad Penny (hamstring) and Travis Homer (calf) are questionable to face the San Francisco 49ers in Week 13 on Sunday. However, both running backs practiced in full on Friday and seem to be in line to return after missing the Week 12 loss to the Washington Football Team. Chris Carson (neck) is out for the season, but Alex Collins (abdomen) should be available, as well as DeeJay Dallas. It remains to be seen who will be the odd-man out against San Francisco, especially if Adrian Peterson is called up from the practice squad. When this entire mediocre backfield is completely healthy, it's a situation to avoid in fantasy, especially with Seattle's offense going nowhere in the last three weeks.
Seattle Seahawks running backs Rashaad Penny (hamstring) and Travis Homer (calf) were both full participants in practice on Thursday. Penny and Homer were ruled out due to their injuries in Week 12, but they look to be on track to play this Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. Alex Collins has done very little as the team's primary back with Chris Carson (neck) out for the season, but it remains to be seen if Seattle will change anything up this weekend with Penny, Homer and DeeJay Dallas all available. The team signed veteran Adrian Peterson to their practice squad earlier this week, but it's unlikely that he'll be active in Week 13. Collins remains the best bet as a low-upside, touchdown-dependent RB3/flex in deeper leagues, but relying on anyone in this backfield will likely be a crapshoot.
Seattle Seahawks running backs Alex Collins (abdomen) and Rashaad Penny (hamstring) were both limited participants in practice on Wednesday. Collins has seen the vast majority of the backfield touches with Chris Carson (neck) out for the season, although it helped that both Penny and Travis Homer were inactive in the Monday night loss to the Washington Football Team. But since Week 5, Collins is averaging just 3.61 yards per carry on 88 carries for 318 yards and one touchdown, adding six catches on seven targets for 52 yards. Penny, Homer and newly signed veteran Adrian Peterson could cut into Collins workload moving forward as Seattle looks to fix their offense. It's clear that Collins isn't the answer in real life or in fantasy, and he'll merely be a low-ceiling and low-floor RB3/flex in Week 13 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Seattle Seahawks running backs Rashaad Penny (hamstring) and Travis Homer (calf) have been ruled out for Monday's game against the Washington Football Team. The Seahawks will be down to Alex Collins and DeeJay Dallas as the team's only healthy running backs. Penny initially injured his hamstring in the Week 11 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. According to Adam Jude of the Seattle Times, the Seahawks may place Penny on injured reserve. Homer sustained a calf injury in the Week 11 loss and was unable to practice this week. The Seahawks ultimately ruled out the 23-year-old for Monday Night Football. Collins will lead Seattle's backfield and handle most early-down work on Monday, while Dallas should see an expanded role on third down and passing situations. Collins is an RB3/flex play, while Dallas is an option in deep-league PPR formats against a Washington defense that ranks 30th in rush DVOA.
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that running back Rashaad Penny (hamstring) was dealing with a hamstring issue in the Week 11 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Yet another injury for the oft-injured former first-rounder. Penny was supposed to be more involved in the offense on Sunday, but he ended up playing only 16.3% of the offensive snaps while Alex Collins and DeeJay Dallas both played 36.7% of the snaps in the 23-13 loss. Penny handled just two carries for 19 yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game. The 25-year-old could eventually have a bigger role down the stretch now that Chris Carson (neck) is out for the year, but fantasy managers just have never been able to rely on Penny to stay on the field for long stretches of time. For now, expect Collins and Dallas and/or Travis Homer to continue splitting carries in an offense that has really struggled since quarterback Russell Wilson returned from his finger injury.
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said running back Rashaad Penny will have a more significant role for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. "I'm really looking forward to Rashaad, really looking forward to seeing where he goes and contributes this week," Carroll said. "He's got a really good role for us, and we're anxious to see him get going. It's really his time to help us. As we go through the next couple of weeks, you'll see him continue to be a big part of it." Seahawks running back Chris Carson (neck) is expected to undergo season-ending neck surgery and has been ruled out for the season. Alex Collins will lead Seattle's backfield, but Penny could see an uptick in usage while Travis Homer handles third-down duties. The former first-round pick has been limited to three games this season due to a calf injury. With Carson out for the year, fantasy managers can roster Penny as a high-upside stash.
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that he hopes to get running back Rashaad Penny more involved in Week 8 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The former first-rounder saw his first action in Week 7 since the season opener when he suffered a calf injury that landed him on Injured Reserve, and he gained only nine yards on six carries in 20 offensive snaps against the New Orleans Saints. "We really need him to be part of it. I would love to see a battle for the 1-2 spot between he and Alex Collins right now. And the other two guys (DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer) are doing a nice job of complementing," Carroll said. It's good news for those who have stashed Penny for RB depth in deeper leagues, but until he's seeing a bigger workload and quarterback Russell Wilson (finger) returns, Penny will be hard to trust in starting lineups.
Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny hadn't played since Week 1, and it sure looked like it in his return during the team's Week 7 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Monday night. Penny finished the game with six carries for nine yards, with a long of five yards. Penny was on the field for 36 percent of the snaps, which was second only to teammate Alex Collins' 39 percent. However, Collins had 17 total touches with the rest of the running backs totaling just seven. It was good to see Penny get back on the field, as he's been beaten up consistently throughout his career. The former first-rounder could see his role increase in this backfield alongside Collins until Chris Carson (neck) returns from Injured Reserve, but for now, he's only a deep-league stash.
The Seattle Seahawks activated running back Rashaad Penny (calf) from Injured Reserve on Monday, and he will play against the New Orleans Saints. The team also elevated quarterback Jake Luton to the active roster from the practice squad. Penny is worth a flier in deeper leagues for those in need of RB depth, but it remains to be seen how big of a role he'll play alongside Alex Collins, DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer with Chris Carson (neck) on IR. The 25-year-old is not expected to be limited at all, but it would make sense for the Seahawks to ease the oft-injured former first-rounder back after he's been out since getting injured in Week 1. Collins is questionable with a groin injury, but he's expected to suit up. The return of Penny will likely lower Collins' RB3/flex ceiling.
Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny (calf) won't have any limitations in Monday's game against the New Orleans Saints. "I'm ready to go," said Penny. "I'm revved up." The 25-year-old was designated to return from the injured reserve on Friday. He has been sidelined since Week 1 with a calf injury. The Seahawks are already without top running back Chris Carson (neck) and could also be missing veteran Alex Collins (groin) in Week 7. Collins was a non-participant for the second straight practice, and his status for Monday Night Football is up in the air. Penny could have an expanded role in Week 7, but injuries have limited the former first-rounder to four games over the past two seasons. Fantasy managers should continue to monitor the situation. Penny, DeeJay Dallas, and Travis Homer will lead Seattle's backfield if Collins is ruled out. Stay tuned.
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that running back Rashaad Penny (calf) will be back from Injured Reserve this week and will be "full speed, ready to roll." It's good news for a Seattle backfield that currently has Chris Carson (neck) on Injured Reserve. Fill-in Alex Collins (hip, glute) was also injured late in the Sunday night overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, although he hasn't been ruled out for Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints on Monday night. Penny's return will add a new wrinkle to the Seahawks backfield with Carson out, which will complicate Collins' status as an RB3/flex in deeper leagues. However, Penny just hasn't been able to stay healthy in his career, so it's understandable to be skeptical that he'll jump into a significant role while Carson heals.
Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny (calf) has been placed on injured reserve while he battles a calf injury. Penny has been limited to just seven snaps this season, all of which came in Week 1 against Indianapolis. Fortunately for the Seahawks, they boast depth at the RB spot behind undisputed starter Chris Carson, with Travis Homer and Alex Collins filling in admirably as third down and change of pace backs. With Penny having played in just four games over the last two years, his role in the Seattle offense is rather tenuous for the time being. He can safely be dropped to the wire in all season-long formats until he reestablishes both his health and contributions out of the backfield.
Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny (calf) has been ruled out for Week 4 against the San Francisco 49ers, while rookie wide receiver Dee Eskridge (concussion) is listed as doubtful. Penny suffered his injury in the season opener and hasn't played since. Given Seattle's depth at the position, he doesn't need to be stashed in 12- and 14-team leagues. Eskridge suffered a concussion in his first NFL game and has been out since, although he did get in a limited practice session on Thursday. It sounds as if he's making some progress, but it'll probably be another week until he's ready to return to the field. If Tyler Lockett (hip) cannot play in Week 4, Freddie Swain and Penny Hart could round out three-receiver sets with D.K. Metcalf.
Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny (calf) missed practice on Thursday. Since injuring his calf in Week 1's win over the Indianapolis Colts, he has been unable to participate in practice. According to head coach Pete Carroll, Penny is progressing, and his calf is close to 100 percent. The Seahawks are expected to play it safe with their oft-injured running back and sit him out for at least one more week. Penny has had trouble staying healthy throughout his career and has played just 28 games over four seasons. Once healthy, Penny is expected to be starter Chris Carson's primary backup. If Penny is ruled out, Alex Collins, DeeJay Dallas, Travis Homer, and Carson will lead Seattle's backfield in Week 4 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll hopes running back Rashaad Penny (calf) can return for Week 4's matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. He was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings and will miss his second straight contest due to a calf injury. Penny has played 28 games over four seasons in his career; the Seahawks could continue to rest the former first-rounder until he is fully recovered from his calf injury. Fantasy managers can stash Penny in deep-leagues but expect Chris Carson to lead the Seahawks backfield while Alex Collins, Travis Homer, and DeeJay Dallas back him up on the RB depth chart.
Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny (calf) and rookie Dee Eskridge (concussion) have been ruled out for Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings for the second straight week. The Seahawks are hopeful that Penny will be able to return in Week 4, but given his lengthy injury history, nobody should be holding their breathe for him. And Seattle has no reason to rush him back with Chris Carson, Alex Collins, Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas at their disposal at the RB position. Eskridge is also hoping to return in Week 4, but Freddie Swain, who had five catches for 95 yards and a touchdown in Week 2, could cement himself as the No. 3 receiver by then. Eskridge is surely worth a stash in dynasty/keeper formats, but outside of those leagues he should be on waivers.
Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny (calf) has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings. Penny had just two carries for eight yards in the Week 1 win over the Indianapolis Colts but then was inactive in the Week 2 overtime loss to the Tennessee Titans. The former first-rounder just cannot stay healthy, so it's obviously hard to rely on him for fantasy purposes, even if it's just for running back depth. With Penny out last Sunday, lead back Chris Carson handled 63 percent of the offensive snaps, with Travis Homer second in the backfield with 25.9 percent of the snaps. Seattle also has DeeJay Dallas, Alex Collins and Travis Homer at their disposal for RB depth, so they won't rush Penny back before he's ready.
Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny (calf) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans. He hurt his calf in Week 1 against the Colts and is not expected to play in Week 2. The former first-round pick could be placed on the short-term injured reserve until his calf is fully recovered, but the Seahawks have yet to do so and will continue to monitor Penny. DeeJay Dallas, Travis Homer, and Alex Collins would back up undisputed starter Chris Carson on Sunday. Dallas is currently listed as No.2 on the RB depth chart and is Carson's primary backup running back. Penny is considered day-to-day.
Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny (calf) is expected to miss Week 2 versus the Tennessee Titans. Penny reaggravated a prior calf injury in Week 1 versus the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1. Head coach Pete Carroll also mentioned that Penny could miss longer than just Week 2. The former San Diego State running back is now in his fourth year in the league, but he has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career and the 14 games he played in his rookie season remain highest amount to date with 10 in 2019 and 3 in 2020. With Penny sidelined, the Seahawks will look to DeeJay Dallas, Travis Homer and Alex Collins to back up Chris Carson. Managers looking to insure Carson should consider Dallas over Homer and Collins at the moment, but more should be figured out after Week 2. Managers can feel confident releasing Penny to the waiver wire.
Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny (calf) aggravated a calf injury in Sunday's game, and he is expected to be out for a few weeks to allow himself to fully recover. There's a chance that Penny could land on Injured Reserve, which would put him out of commission for at least three weeks. Penny has been dealt with injuries in each of his three NFL seasons prior to 2021, which has resulted in him playing just 27 of a possible 42 games. Penny's fantasy value is capped with Chris Carson on the roster, and if Penny were to head to the IR, he probably wouldn't be worth holding onto in most fantasy formats. Running back DeeJay Dallas will likely serve as the primary backup to Carson with Penny injured again, although no other Seattle back besides Carson will have standalone fantasy value. Travis Homer and Alex Collins, who was a healthy inactive in Week 1, could see more opportunities.
Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny (left calf) is questionable to return to Sunday's Week 1 game against the Colts. At halftime, Penny has two carries for eight yards. Chris Carson has eight carries for 60 yards as well as one reception and is serving as the unquestioned lead back in Seattle. If Penny doesn't return, expect to see a few snaps from Travis Homer, but mainly we'll just continue to see more from Carson.
Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny (calf) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. He made the Seahawks' final 53-man roster and is expected to be the primary backup behind undisputed starter Chris Carson. The former first-rounder rushed for 32 yards on 12 attempts while catching two passes on three targets for 11 yards in both preseason games. Penny will compete with Alex Collins, DeeJay Dallas, and Travis Homer for touches while Carson heads the Seahawks backfield. The 25-year-old is considered day-to-day. Collins will be the favorite to spell Carson if Penny cannot suit against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1.
Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny lived to fight another day after surviving the team's final roster cuts on Tuesday. He was one of the team's five running backs that were kept. Penny is in the final year of his four-year rookie contract that he signed back in 2018, and he's hoping to put together a full year of production after dealing injuries and inconsistencies over the last three seasons. The former first-round selection saw just 11 carries for 34 yards last season before being placed on Injured Reserve. He'll be scrapping for touches with the other three backups behind starter Chris Carson, so it remains to be seen how much fantasy value he will have moving forward.
Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny (thigh) returned to practice on Tuesday. Penny was sidelined from practice last week with a thigh injury and he was unable to suit up for the team's first preseason game. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told the media that the team is hoping to ramp up Penny's activities throughout the week with the goal for him to play on Saturday against the Denver Broncos. Penny is in the midst of a battle for the Seahawks' backup running back role behind Chris Carson. His primary adversaries right now are Travis Homer, DeeJay Dallas and Alex Collins. Penny should be considered the frontrunner for the backup role, but he isn't worth targeting in fantasy drafts outside the deepest of leagues.

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
