Once Penny was carted off, the running back workload was split up between Ken Walker (early downs) and DeeJay Dallas (third down role). Walker did run a season-high 13 routes on Sunday, but it's more likely that he would be eased into that role. Either way, the rookie becomes an immediate must-roster regardless of league size.
SEA RB Rashaad Penny - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 5 at New Orleans Saints
Rashaad Penny remains the main attraction in the Seattle backfield, especially after going for 151 yards and two touchdowns against the Lions. It's definitely a tougher matchup this week. The Saints have been very solid against the run this season, so Penny will be hard-pressed to duplicate his success from last week. That said, he is still the lead back and Seattle looks better on offense, so Penny at least warrants flex consideration.
