January 7, 2024
Walker (shoulder) rushed 17 times for 78 yards and caught his only target for three yards in Sunday's 21-20 win over the Cardinals.
ANALYSIS
Walker was cleared of the shoulder injury that had plagued him in recent weeks and led Seattle's backfield with 17 carries in Sunday's thrilling comeback win. While the 9-8 Seahawks still narrowly missed the playoffs, the team's lead back turned in another solid fantasy season. Walker gained over 1,000 combined yards from scrimmage while scoring nine touchdowns over 15 games, numbers that somewhat mirror his impressive 228/1,050/9 rookie rushing line last season. The 23-year-old will enter the third year of his rookie deal likely leading Seattle's rising backfield duo of he and Zach Charbonnet in 2024.

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.
