Kenneth Walker

21-Year-Old Running BackRB
2022 Fantasy Outlook
The second running back taken in this year's draft, Walker went to Seattle with the 41st overall pick after a huge junior season at Michigan State that included a 75-yard TD run on his first carry. A compact, powerful runner at 5-9, 211, Walker opened eyes at the combine with a surprising 4.39 40 time, raising his draft stock even higher after the big finish to his college career. Without Russell Wilson this season, the Seattle offense could be even more run-heavy than it was last year, though efficiency likely will be a problem until the team finds a new franchise quarterback. Former first-round pick Rashaad Penny finished 2021 on a tear and thus enters camp as the starting running back, but he's missed nearly as many games (28) as he's played (37) through four NFL seasons, so it may not be long before Walker gets his shot as the lead back.

Walker rushed three times for 19 yards and caught all three of his targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Falcons.
ANALYSIS
Walker played just nine offensive snaps, but it's encouraging that he got the ball on six of those plays. The rookie second-round pick had a 21-yard tout in the third quarter but didn't gain any ground on his other two carries. He was also effective as a checkdown option for quarterback Geno Smith. However, Rashaad Penny -- who played 69 percent of the snaps -- is still the clear No. 1 back, so fantasy managers need to exercise patience with Walker.
