News: 3 hours agoPenny (calf) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Titans, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Spin: Since Penny hurt his calf Week 1 at Indianapolis, the injury has transformed from minor to one that's expected to sideline him for a few weeks. With a doubtful designation for Sunday, he's almost certainly going to be listed among the Seattle's inactives, which would give Alex Collins, DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer a chance to make an impact in the ground game behind starter Chris Carson.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Penny has played 14% of the Seahawks' offensive snaps since being drafted in the first round of the 2018 draft. Injuries have been the culprit, as he was limited to 10 games in 2019 and only three in 2020. The good news is that Penny has shown well when active, averaging 5.1 YPC (sixth-best among 77 RBs with 150-plus carries since 2018) and 2.0 YAC (12th-best) on 161 career carries and 6.9 YPT on 23 career targets. The 25-year-old has some post-hype appeal, but he remains behind Chris Carson on Seattle's crowded depth chart, so he's worth no more than a late-round flier in deeper leagues.
