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

Paces squad with 10 carries

September 17, 2018
Penny rushed 10 times for 30 yard and didn't make a catch on two targets during Monday's 24-17 loss to the Bears.
ANALYSIS
The Seahawks found themselves in an early deficit and neglected the run at times, instead allowing Russell Wilson to take full control. Still, it was surprising to see Penny lead the team in carries after coach Pete Carroll said Chris Carson, who had six rushes Monday, was the clear No. 1 running back. Until the offensive line shows significant improvement, neither running back is a reliable fantasy option outside of deeper leagues.
