Huddle Up: Penny briefly left after a 30-yard run but returned to finish out the game. He appears to be the clear No. 2 option behind Chris Carson at this point, making him a must-own handcuff.

Huddle Up: He's clearly behind Chris Carson and is just a depth back at this point. However, Carson is banged up often, and Penny could break through at any point.

Huddle Up: Penny had been a huge disappointment up to this point, but he finally flashed the potential that made him a first-round pick. If Chris Carson remains sidelined in Week 11, Penny could be worth a roll of the dice as a flex play.

Huddle Up: Penny currently sits behind Chris Carson and Mike Davis in the running back pecking order. The Seahawks won't give up on a the first-round pick, but he might have to wait until next season to have a chance at leading the backfield. He's a still a must-own player in dynasty formats.

Huddle Up: Penny's 11-touch showing in London in Week 6 piqued the interest of fantasy owners, but anyone who watched the game realized how much of his work in that game came on the final drive in a blowout. The first-round pick's role hasn't changed at all, and he appears to be well behind backup Mike Davis on the depth chart.

Huddle Up: Penny (or is it Pence in England?) managed 11 total touches to 14 for Chris Carson and just seven for Mike Davis. Head coach Pete Carroll was looking for some consistency in the backfield and Penny had the best yards per attempt (4.8) among the tailbacks. The Seattle backfield picture is one to watch heading into Week 8 after the bye.

Huddle Up: Penny has been a bust for the Seahawks and for fantasy owners thus far. He is worth hanging on to in dynasty leagues, but after falling out of the rotation, he doesn't need to be owned in redraft formats.

Huddle Up: If the emergence of both Mike Davis and Chris Carson wasn't enough to convince you to dispose of Penny, maybe his lack of time on the field will. It's a tough break for the rookie after he had to miss most of training camp and the preseason, which may have hindered his progress as well. He can safely be dropped if you're looking to roster someone else.
Posted: 9/30/2018 7:43pm ET
Huddle Up: Even with Chris Carson out, Penny ran the ball just nine times while Mike Davis saw 21 carries. On the plus side, Penny ran well, but his fantasy owners have no choice but to sit tight, leave him on the bench and hope his usage increases.
Posted: 9/29/2018 6:06pm ET
Huddle Up: The Seahawks aren't going to give up on their first-round pick just yet, and fantasy owners shouldn't either. That being said, Penny needs to be stashed on the bench until he starts producing.
Posted: 9/23/2018 11:55pm ET
Huddle Up: After gaining 43 and 30 yards, respectively, in his first two games, Penny was invisible in Week 3 and has done nothing thus far to reward Seattle's faith of investing a first-round pick on him. It's too early to cast Penny aside, but keep him out of your lineup until further notice.
Posted: 9/17/2018 8:21pm ET
Huddle Up: Penny saw seven runs for just eight yards in Denver in Week 1 while totaling 11 touches. He had 10 touches in this one, but was used slightly more in the run game. It was tough sledding all night for the Seattle offense, and Penny's team-leading 30 yards on the ground isn't terribly impressive for fantasy purposes. Still, it's notable he had more touches than any other Seattle back.
Posted: 9/9/2018 7:25pm ET
Huddle Up: Penny couldn't find any running room, but on the plus side, he and Chris Carson split carries evenly. Penny needs to be owned in all formats, and he should carve out a bigger role as the year goes on.
Posted: 9/7/2018 3:44pm ET
Huddle Up: Penny is opening the season as the No. 2 running back for the Seahawks, so he probably will see limited touches against the Denver Broncos. Owners can avoid him for now, but he likely will be a factor for owners later in the season.
Posted: 9/6/2018 6:07pm ET
Huddle Up: After spending a first-round pick on Penny, Seattle is going to give the rookie a chance to shine at some point. However, that chance might not come in Week 1. With Chris Carson expected to open the year as the starter, Penny should be kept on the bench until his role becomes clear.
Posted: 9/6/2018 5:21pm ET
Huddle Up: The rookie is expected to back up Chris Carson in his first game this Sunday, making him a very limited starting option in even the deepest of fantasy leagues. He has potential, though, and is worth monitoring until he garners a sizable workload.
Posted: 9/5/2018 4:59pm ET
Huddle Up: Penny is expected to be the backup running back to open the season but should receive some touches Week 1. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better options for their lineups and can keep Penny on the bench.
Posted: 8/29/2018 12:04pm ET
Huddle Up: Penny won't make the impact we want him to right away. Chris Carson appears to be the starter for the time being, but Penny will still have a meaningful role. There's more upside for Penny, who can be considered a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3. Carson is more of an RB3.
Posted: 8/22/2018 11:09am ET
Huddle Up: Penny has looked OK in the preseason and doesn't seem to be trudging along. Still, he's heavier than he should be, although Pete Carroll doesn't seem to be too concerned. Chris Carson is a bigger worry than the weight. He's made Penny more of a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 target.
Posted: 8/21/2018 4:02pm ET
Huddle Up: Penny will play, but how much? As of now he is behind sophomore Chris Carson and will need to outplay his counterpart in order to reach his maximum potential. In traditional leagues, he can't be drafted as more than a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3.
Posted: 8/15/2018 6:40pm ET
Huddle Up: With Penny potentially sidelined for Week 1 and perhaps the following week as well, that means Chris Carson should receive every opportunity to establish himself as the bell cow back in the early going. However, being the club's first-round draft pick this past April, Penny figures to immediately be inserted back into the fold once he returns and will have a regular workload. This shouldn't deter fantasy owners from drafting him.
Posted: 8/15/2018 7:06am ET
Huddle Up: Penny could still lose some ground to camp standout Chris Carson, but Penny is still worthy of being an RB3 with upside.
Posted: 8/14/2018 11:23pm ET
Huddle Up: Penny has been trying to beat back the challenge of Chris Carson during training camp, and now the rookie is out of action until basically Week 1 and possibly beyond depending on how quickly he heals. This could spell real trouble for Penny's value, especially early on. At this stage it's probably best to view Penny as an RB3 and Carson as an RB4 as we close in on the regular season, though both players clearly carry the potential to over (or under) perform those designations.
Posted: 8/13/2018 7:32pm ET
Huddle Up: Of course, blocking can't get running backs any points in fantasy but it can maximize their playing time, which makes it crucial that a rookie like Penny becomes good at it quickly. As it is right now, the No. 27 overall pick in this past April's draft is slotted in as the No. 2 running back behind Chris Carson, but he's still expected to garner a regular workload out of the gate, with potential to do a whole lot more.
Posted: 8/13/2018 1:07pm ET
Huddle Up: Penny's luster has faded over the last month or so with Chris Carson making a good impression again. Seattle's backfield will be one to keep an eye on as the preseason progresses. Penny still deserves low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 consideration.
Posted: 7/29/2018 6:26pm ET
Huddle Up: If Penny can stay on the field in passing situations, it will only boost value. However, he is often being drafted like an every-down workhorse when Chris Carson also seems likely to have a steady role. Penny may put up the better numbers when all is said and done, but Carson could end up being the much better value om draft day.
Posted: 6/29/2018 7:20pm ET
Huddle Up: After being selected in the first round and receiving nothing but praise from Carroll this offseason, Penny seems destined to see a big workload as a rookie. Seattle's offensive line leaves a lot to be desired, but Penny should at least be a volume-based RB2.
Posted: 6/14/2018 6:45pm ET
Huddle Up: After being selected in the first round, Penny is going to be given a chance to show his stuff. Carroll continues to talk him up as an every-down back, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him deliver RB2 production as a rookie.
Posted: 5/16/2018 3:41pm ET
Huddle Up: Penny is someone to look out for in fantasy drafts, as it's very possible he earns a sizable role. It's certainly no guarantee, though, as he'll have plenty of competition from the likes of Chris Carson, C.J. Prosise, Mike Davis and J.D. McKissic. Even so, considering how the Seahawks' rush attack last year was such a mess, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Penny garner a meaningful workload in his rookie campaign.
Posted: 5/7/2018 9:41am ET
Huddle Up: Penny will compete with Chris Carson for the starting job but may only be on the field for first and second downs if he is not able to pass protect. Owners should monitor the competition during training camp because Penny can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy running back if he wins the job.
Posted: 4/27/2018 6:52am ET
Huddle Up: Penny will be an RB3 in fantasy with some tantalizing upside as he figures to see a ton of work.
Posted: 4/26/2018 8:01pm ET
Huddle Up: Penny has a chance to receive a majority of the playing time at running back as a rookie. He probably can be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in standard leagues and a middle-round pick in keeper leagues. He will have more value in non-point-per- reception leagues this season.
