2021 Fantasy Outlook
When Chris Carson sat out four games in 2020, Dallas ended up as the Seahawks' lead back twice, registering 97 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns on 32 touches Weeks 8 and 9. The 2020 fourth-round pick made little impact outside of those two contests, but he proved to be useful depth and a capable pass catcher. Carson returns on a two-year deal, and Rashaad Penny will be 21 months removed from ACL surgery when Week 1 kicks off. At best, Dallas is the No. 3 running back in the rotation, and he'll need to beat out Travis Homer for that title. Read Past Outlooks

September 20, 2021
Dallas didn't record an offensive snap in Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Titans.
ANALYSIS
Chris Carson (34), Travis Homer (14) and Alex Collins (six) handled all the backfield snaps. Dallas recorded 30 yards on three kick returns. He doesn't have a clear path to backfield reps barring an injury ahead of him on the depth chart.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Dallas joins his former Miami teammate (Travis Homer) in Seattle's backfield. While he has a fourth-round selection working in his favor, Homer started over Dallas in college despite being the younger of the two. Dallas' speed - 4.58 40-yard dash - isn't anything to call home about, but he did average a whopping 6.0 yards per carry in his final season at Miami. There's definitely a fantasy ceiling here if there's a serious slew of injuries, but Chris Carson is expected to be ready for Week 1, Carlos Hyde is there if he's not and Rashaad Penny should be ready by midseason. There's no redraft value without the aforementioned injury bug.
