Rashaad Penny surprises with 70 yards in Week 6

Rashaad Penny ran nine times for 43 yards and caught two passes for 27 yards as Seattle rolled over Oakland 27-3 in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact

Penny made an impressive 24-yard reception early in the game, and then got the bulk of his carries once Seattle went up big. Chris Carson was still the team’s lead back, however. Mike Davis saw seven touches as well. Ultimately Penny feels too good to leave on your waiver wire, but he also isn’t someone you want to start in fantasy anytime soon. The Seahawks have a bye in Week 7.

Rashaad Penny benched in Week 5

Rashaad Penny did not receive a single carry in Seattle's Week 5 loss to the Rams.

Fantasy Impact

Incredibly, Mike Davis saw 12 carries in a game where Penny got none. It's mind boggling to think Seattle used a first round pick on a running back only to not feature him at all, but that's where we are at. Penny only appeared as a kick returner in Week 5. He's a far ways away from consistent fantasy value.

Rashaad Penny efficient in Week 4

Rashaad Penny rushed nine times for 49 yards in Week 4 as the Seahawks beat the Cardinals 20-17.

Fantasy Impact

The rookie running back didn't catch a pass for the third straight game. It was nice to see him average 5.4 YPC, but Penny simply hasn't been used enough to be a fantasy asset. He belongs on the bench once again in Week 5.

Rashaad Penny down to 228 pounds

Rashaad Penny is reportedly down to 228 pounds according to coach Pete Carroll.

Fantasy Impact

The rookie running back was reportedly in the 240s back in training camp, which was a major concern. It's good to hear Penny has shed some weight, but he has still struggled on the field this year. Penny was out touched 34-3 by Chris Carson last week. He's a bench stash in Week 4.

Rashaad Penny gets just three touches

Rashaad Penny ran the ball three times for 5 yards and did not catch a pass in Seattle's 24-13 win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 3.

Fantasy Impact

Penny completed took a back seat to Chris Carson in this one, who saw a whopping 34 touches. Penny misplayed a handoff early in the game, which coach Pete Carroll had no patience for. The rookie back appears to be a handcuff for the time being.
