2020 Fantasy Outlook
Homer was selected by the Seahawks in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft and projected as a special-teams asset behind Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny, both of whom suffered season-ending injuries between Weeks 14 and 16. The Seahawks opted to bring back Marshawn Lynch to fill the void, but Homer managed to showcase his explosiveness and pass-catching abilities over the final five games, including two playoff contests. Carson should be ready for Week 1, but Penny likely will need until October to hit full speed. That should leave a handful of touches for Homer early on, but the addition of 2020 fourth-rounder DeeJay Dallas damages any certainty. Read Past Outlooks

Headed for backup role
RBSeattle Seahawks
August 7, 2020
Homer is on track to open the season as Seattle's No. 3 running back, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
A sixth-round pick last year, Homer primarily played special teams until Rashaad Penny (knee) and Chris Carson (hip) suffered season-ending injuries. The rookie then took 15 carries for 78 yards and 11 catches for 56 yards over the final two weeks of the regular season, but he was limited to 57 yards on 17 touches in two playoff games. With Penny likely headed for the PUP list while Carson and Carlos Hyde (shoulder) are expected to be ready for the start of the season, Homer figures to compete for the No. 3 job with college teammate DeeJay Dallas, a rookie fourth-round pick. Dallas is bigger and probably more powerful, but Homer seems to have the edge in terms of speed, experience, receiving skill and pass-blocking skill. Those qualities probably make Homer the better fit in a backfield with Carson and Hyde, whereas another big back like Dallas feels redundant.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Homer was efficient in college, averaging 6.0 YPC in his senior season, but he punched it in the end zone just four times in 13 games. The Seahawks took a sixth-round risk on the unproven back because Homer has encouraging athleticism, with a 4.48 40-yard dash along with a 39.5-inch vertical jump. He enters a crowded backfield with Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny leading the way, and C.J. Prosise and J.D. McKissic bringing pass-catching abilities, so Homer figures to top out as a reserve running back with special-teams duties.
