2018 Fantasy Outlook
Arguably the most shocking selection of the 2018 draft, Penny went to Seattle with the 27th overall pick, the second running back off the board. The team definitely had a need at the position, but taking Penny over bigger-name backs like Sony Michel, Nick Chubb and Derrius Guice raised eyebrows. Penny, though, fits the mold Seattle looks for in a lead back at 5-11, 220, and, importantly, doesn't have the injury history of the aforementioned trio. During his final season at San Diego State he displayed both power and patience as a runner, letting his blocks set up before he trampled defenders in the hole. His surprising 4.46 40 time at the combine likely played into his rise up the Hawks' draft board, erasing any doubt regarding his athleticism. While the building blocks are there for him to be a solid NFL starter, Penny needs to work on his receiving and blocking to become a true three-down asset, and his upright running style and average elusiveness can lead to too much contact. Given the draft capital Seattle used to get him and the lack of established talent on the depth chart, Penny has every opportunity to seize the lead role, though a broken finger he suffered in August has temporarily slowed his momentum. On the plus side, Penny should be back in time for Week 1. Read Past Outlooks

Takes reins in backfield
RBSeattle Seahawks
November 11, 2018
Penny rushed 12 times for 108 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 36-31 loss to the Rams.
ANALYSIS
This is the production the Seahawks expected when they picked Penny in the first round of April's draft. With Chris Carson (hip) out, Penny outpaced Mike Davis, who rushed 11 times for 58 yards. This adds to the ambiguity in the Seattle backfield, but coach Pete Carroll could ride the hot hand Thursday against the Packers if Carson remains out.
