2022 Fantasy Outlook
Dallas served as the Seahawks' primary kick returner and led the team's backfield with 21 receptions (for 133 yards), despite handling just 152 offensive snaps through 17 games. A pass-catching role could come in handy with the team's two primary backs (Rashaad Penny and Kenneth Walker) lacking in that capacity. However, Travis Homer is trusted more in pass protection. There should be room for both Dallas and Homer on the roster now that Chris Carson retired, but it's a fool's errand to predict which back will handle the third-down workload in a given week.

Best rushing season
RBSeattle Seahawks
January 16, 2023
Dallas carried 35 times for 186 yards and caught 17 of 19 targets for 126 yards through 15 games during the 2022 season. He also returned 14 punts for 102 yards and 12 kicks for 270 yards.
ANALYSIS
When the whole backfield was healthy, Dallas was often left out of the rotation, but when Rashaad Penny (leg) and Travis Homer (ankle) went down with injuries, Dallas got some run and was effective. After posting 3.2 and 4.2 yards per carry, respectively, through his first two NFL seasons, Dallas logged an efficient 5.3 yards per carry in 2022. Dallas is entering the final year of his contract in 2023 and is a good bet to make the team, especially if Homer and Penny leave in free agency.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
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.
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.
