Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny rushed eight times for 55 yards in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Penny posted 6.9 yards per rush to 4.5 for Chris Carson, but he isn't going to cut into Carson's workload anytime soon. He is the clear-cut No. 2 tailback right now and Carson is the bellcow. Treat Penny as more of a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option, and have him at the ready in case anything ever happens to Carson. The Seahawks host the Buccaneers in Week 9.

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny played only two offensive snaps in Week 7 against the Baltimore Ravens, compared to 64 snaps for Chris Carson. When asked about Penny's lack of playing time, head coach Pete Carroll 'it just worked out that way.'
Huddle Up: This is another example in which it is hard to take Carroll at his word since Carson amassed only 74 total yards on 24 touches. It will also lead skeptics to believe Penny is on the verge of getting traded, which would also be a poor decision considering how prone Carson is to injury given his physical style. Penny's fantasy owners have little choice but to wait this thing out, as he possesses the same kind of upside as Carson if he gets a chance to be a featured back.

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) should be a full participant during practice Wednesday, Oct. 16, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: Penny was held out of the Week 6 game but likely will be available for Week 7. He will receive a handful of carries if he plays but may only be a flex option in deeper leagues because of the matchup.

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 11, but is listed as questionable for Week 6.

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) appeared on the injury report as a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: There shouldn't be any concern for Penny, as he wasn't even listed on Wednesday's report. He could be used as a bye-week-replacement flex option while working behind starter Chris Carson.

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny ran six times for 18 yards and added a pair of receptions for 31 yards in the team's Week 5 win over the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Thirty of Penny's 49 yards came on a single play, and he did little as a runner spelling Chris Carson here and there. His role could certainly increase as the season rolls on. For now, though, he's worth owning but not starting.
