2018 Fantasy Outlook
Arguably the most shocking selection of the 2018 draft, Penny went to Seattle with the 27th overall pick, the second running back off the board. The team definitely had a need at the position, but taking Penny over bigger-name backs like Sony Michel, Nick Chubb and Derrius Guice raised eyebrows. Penny, though, fits the mold Seattle looks for in a lead back at 5-11, 220, and, importantly, doesn't have the injury history of the aforementioned trio. During his final season at San Diego State he displayed both power and patience as a runner, letting his blocks set up before he trampled defenders in the hole. His surprising 4.46 40 time at the combine likely played into his rise up the Hawks' draft board, erasing any doubt regarding his athleticism. While the building blocks are there for him to be a solid NFL starter, Penny needs to work on his receiving and blocking to become a true three-down asset, and his upright running style and average elusiveness can lead to too much contact. Given the draft capital Seattle used to get him and the lack of established talent on the depth chart, Penny has every opportunity to seize the lead role, though a broken finger he suffered in August has temporarily slowed his momentum. On the plus side, Penny should be back in time for Week 1. Read Past Outlooks

Back in running back rotation

October 14, 2018
Penny rushed nine times for 43 yards and caught both of his targets for 27 more in Sunday's 27-3 win over the Raiders at Wembley Stadium.
ANALYSIS
Penny was the Seattle's most effective running back ahead of Chris Carson (59 yards on 14 touches) and Mike Davis (26 yards on seven touches). Carson is still ahead of Penny in the pecking order, as the 27th overall selection in the 2018 draft is still searching for his first career touchdown heading into Seattle's Week 7 bye.
