As a rookie, Penny was unable to beat out Chris Carson for the RB1 job, and finished third in the backfield touches (94), yards (494) and touchdowns (2). No. 2 back Mike Davis has moved on, so his 146 touches are up for grabs. Carson is probably unable to handle much more than the 19.1 touches that he saw last season, so if Penny is able to take over all of Davis’s touches, he could turn into a 16-touch back, assuming the team’s rushing volume doesn’t drop much. It’s feasible that both Seattle running backs can be fantasy RB2s in 2019.
