Rashaad Penny Week 4 Outlook - Seahawks at Lions

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Thu, Sep 29th 2022, 1:05pm EDT

This backfield is an utter mess. Over the last two games, Penny has averaged 10.5 touches and 42 total yards. He's played 69% of the snaps in two of three games, with at least 12 carries and 60 rushing yards in each of those contests. Penny sees the bulk of the work and nearly all of the red zone work. While he has the highest route run rate, he's mediocre at earning targets. He's been effective with his workload ranking 23rd in yards after contact per attempt and 24th in PFF's elusive rating, but not nearly as explosive as last year. The Lions are a nice matchup for him on the ground. Detroit allows the highest rushing success rate, seventh-highest rushing EPA, and eighth-highest explosive run rate. Penny is a decent RB3/flex play. If he gets 15 carries and can take one to the house, he may sneak into RB2 territory this week.
