Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
6/22: Apparently in "the driver's seat" for Lead-Back duties, but Ken Walker is no joke. Tons of upside still on a team that'll run, run, and run some more. After Penny feasted (Was the RB1 in the Fantasy Playoffs), the team rewards him by... drafting Kenneth Walker. Should still be involved in 1-year deal, but very unlikely to be "the horse"5/2 Update: Returns to Denver where he was the RB21 last year in a grosser overall offense. Significant upside at a minimal price
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
The Seahawks drafted Kenneth Walker III in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft, but there's no guarantee that he supplants a healthy Rashaad Penny from Day 1. Penny was brought back on a one-year deal worth $5 million (12th-highest cap hit) after an impressive end to the 2021 regular season. He was the fantasy RB1 over the final five weeks of the season. Seems more likely than not that the team rides Penny till the wheels almost certainly fall off to start the season, then turn to their rookie RB down the stretch. That makes Penny enticing as a late-round RB target for those looking for immediate production out of the gates.Gordon is bound to be written off by fantasy draft pundits this offseason due to his age, but he proved that he still has gas in the tank in 2021. The 29-year-old running back was efficient across the board, ranking eighth in both PFF rushing grade (83.4) and forced missed tackles (45) while compiling 231 touches (16th). With him back on a high-powered offense and with the potential to receive goal-line touches, he could easily become a screaming value in 2022 like James Conner or Leonard Fournette last year.
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
Rashaad Penny was excellent to close the season in 2021. In Weeks 14-18, he averaged 18.4 rushing attempts and 134.2 rushing yards per game as the RB1 in fantasy football. He only ran a route on 32.2% (per PFF) of Russell Wilson's dropbacks last year, so don't expect up from him in the passing game. His rushing prowess is legit, though. Penny could be stuck in a committee with Kenneth Walker, but don't rule out him running away with the job for 2022.
