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

Rashaad Penny rushed four times for six yards in the Seahawks' Week 17 win over the Cardinals.

Coming off a two-game absence, Penny was limited to No. 3 duties in the season finale. Chris Carson carried the rock 19 times while Mike Davis scored a touchdown on one of his seven carries. The Seahawks will likely use their 2018 first-round pick as a pure runner who will see 4-8 carries during the playoffs. Penny ends the regular season with 87 carries for 419 yards (4.8 YPC) and two touchdowns.

Rashaad Penny (knee) is active for Week 17 against the Cardinals.

Penny practiced fully, and he may see extended looks with the Seahawks not playing for much in the regular season finale. When healthy, Penny has received 4-12 carries playing behind Chris Carson. The Seahawks declared S Tedric Thompson, G J.R. Sweezy, CB Kalan Reed, DE Rasheem Green, RB Bo Scarbrough, DE Dion Jordan, and LB Emmanuel Ellerbee as inactives.

Rashaad Penny (knee) is questionable for Week 17 against the Cardinals.

Penny practiced fully, putting him on track to return after missing the last two games. The Seahawks aren't playing for much but can slightly improve their seeding with a win. In a matchup with blowout potential, Penny could see a decent workload if the Seahawks rest their starters in the second half.

Rashaad Penny (knee) is practicing fully this week.

He is on track to be all systems go for Seattle's regular season finale against the Cardinals. Penny was handling 7-10 touches per game before going down.

Speaking Monday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Rashaad Penny (knee) would return for Sunday's finale against the Cardinals.

Specifically, Carroll said Penny should "come roaring back this week." The No. 27 overall pick was sidelined the past two weeks. Carroll has said he does not plan to rest any players even though the Seahawks are locked into a Wild Card road game, but Penny could end up seeing some big second half run vs. the Cardinals' awful ground defense.

Rashaad Penny (knee) is inactive for Week 16 against the Chiefs.

He'll miss his second straight game. Penny got in a limited practice this week and his status came all the way to game-time, so he'll have a chance to return in Week 17. The rest of the Seahawks inactives are RB Bo Scarbrough, S Tedric Thompson, CB Kalan Reed, OT Germain Ifedi, DT Nazir Jones, and DE Branden Jackson.
Sun, Dec 23, 2018 07:00:00 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Rashaad Penny (questionable, knee) is a game-time decision for Week 16 against the Chiefs.

Penny is on the wrong side of questionable after only getting in one limited practice. We don't expect him to play, giving Chris Carson an uptick in snaps. The Seahawks will go with Mike Davis behind Carson if Penny sits, with J.D. McKissic likely active as the No. 3 back.

Rashaad Penny (knee) is questionable for Week 16 against the Chiefs.

Coach Pete Carroll said early in the week that Penny's status was "uncertain," but the team then went out and signed Bo Scarbrough off Jacksonville's practice squad as insurance. Chris Carson is in a smash spot if Penny is indeed ruled out as the former has buoyed the rookie's three absences this season into touch totals of 20, 27, and 28. Kansas City has allowed the third-most fantasy points to opposing backs this year.
Fri, Dec 21, 2018 04:20:00 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said it "remains uncertain" if Rashaad Penny (knee) can return this week.

The Seahawks are hoping Penny can get some practice reps in Friday, but he looks headed for another missed game. Bo Scarbrough wa signed off Jacksonville's practice squad as insurance for Penny.
Wed, Dec 19, 2018 04:46:00 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Rashaad Penny (knee) could return next week.

Penny's MRI didn't show any structural damage. He was an early rule out after not practicing, but there's a chance he only misses one game. Mike Davis will pick up Penny's change-of-pace snaps behind Chris Carson against the 49ers.
Sat, Dec 15, 2018 09:46:00 AM

Rashaad Penny (knee) is out for Week 15 against the 49ers.

It seems like Penny is always hurt, but this is actually his first career absence. The 22-year-old got off to a sluggish start this year but has impressed recently, thriving in a change-of-pace role behind starter Chris Carson. Mike Davis should see more work in his absence, though Carson is still the preferred fantasy play.
Fri, Dec 14, 2018 04:25:00 PM

Rashaad Penny (knee) remained sidelined on Thursday.

The Seahawks' change-up back is suddenly in doubt for Week 15, though Pete Carroll is never the most straightforward with injury information. Penny needs to get in at least a limited session on Friday.
Thu, Dec 13, 2018 08:04:00 PM

Rashaad Penny (knee) didn't practice Wednesday.

Penny played through an ankle issue on Monday night, so this is a new injury. Even if he plays this week, Penny will just be a change-up to workhorse Chris Carson.
Wed, Dec 12, 2018 04:39:00 PM

Rashaad Penny rushed eight times for 44 yards in the Seahawks' Week 14 win over the Vikings.

Penny was out-carried 22-8 by Chris Carson, who managed 90 yards and a touchdown on the ground, while neither was targeted in the pass game. Penny has change-of-pace duties on lock but will likely need a Carson injury for fantasy viability. Penny and the 'Hawks get the Niners on the road next.
