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

Dallas finished the 2021 season with 33 carries for 138 yards and two touchdowns and 21 catches (23 targets) for 133 yards through 17 games. He also recorded 764 yards on 33 kick returns.
ANALYSIS
Dallas played more than 40 percent of the offensive snaps just twice this season, and he averaged a mere 8.9 snaps per game. The second-year running back had a chance to secure an increased role when Chris Carson (neck) and Alex Collins (abdomen) suffered injuries. Instead, Rashaad Penny burst onto the scene over the final five weeks with 671 rushing yards (7.3 YPC) and six rushing touchdowns. Penny will be an unrestricted free agent in March but could be re-signed by the Seahawks, and Carson is expected to be back for training camp. Even if both Penny and Carson are out of the picture, the Seahawks will almost certainly bring in competition for Dallas and Travis Homer.

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.
