Rashaad Penny rushed four times for 29 yards in Seattle's Wild Card loss to the Cowboys.
Like most of the year, Penny worked as the No. 3 back behind Chris Carson and Mike Davis in Seattle's Wild Card game. Although the rookie showed explosiveness in averaging 4.8 yard per carry this season, he ultimately didn't receive enough carries (91 total) to become a viable weekly option. With Mike Davis likely gone in free agency, the former first-round pick will enter the new league year as Seattle's No. 2 with the ability to leapfrog Carson for a starting role in camp. Keep him locked in as a late-round Best Ball pick this upcoming May. Jan 6 - 1:32 AM

Chris Carson is listed as the starting running back on the Seahawks' Week 1 depth chart.

Team-issued depth charts often reflect an alternate reality, but this jibes with what we saw all offseason and summer. Coach Pete Carroll could scarcely contain his glee when discussing Carson. For his part, Rashaad Penny battled a finger injury and gained weight during training camp. We would expect Carson to be the clear-cut lead dog against the Broncos.

ESPN Seahawks reporter Brady Henderson considers Chris Carson "the favorite" to enter the season as Seattle's starting running back.

By all accounts, Carson has been running circles around the rest of the running backs in Seahawks camp. He looks "all the way back" from last season's ankle/leg injury and has added 10 pounds of muscle to his frame. Seattle used a first-round pick on Penny, and he's obviously going to have a role, but Carson appears to be the favorite for touches right now. Penny is currently being drafted in the fourth round of fantasy drafts, while Carson can he had in the 11th round.

Chris Carson has been working as the Seahawks' No. 1 running back through the first two days of training camp.

Beat writer Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times predicted this would be the case. Despite drafting Rashaad Penny 27th overall, the Seahawks' coaching staff has talked up Carson all offseason and it would seem the 2017 seventh-rounder is a legitimate threat to Penny's rookie-year workload. Carson can still be had as a late-rounder in most formats, though his stock will surely rise if he continues to hold off Penny.

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times expects Chris Carson to open training camp as the Seahawks' lead running back.

It was widely assumed that role would go to first-round rookie Rashaad Penny, though Condotta, a long-time Seahawks beat writer, sees it playing out a bit differently. His expectation is that Penny will fill a complementary role behind Carson while also working as a return specialist. Carson averaged a respectable 4.2 yards per carry before he got hurt last season, but it's still hard to envision the Seahawks playing him over Penny, who led FBS with 2,248 rushing yards a year ago. Obviously the Carson/Penny competition will be worth monitoring throughout training camp.
