Just when you least expect it, Rashaad Penny comes absolutely storming into fantasy relevancy near the end of the 2021 season. Granted, his season to this point has been littered with injuries and poor performances on his end.
However, Penny rushed 16 times for 137 yards and two touchdowns against the Houston Texans in Week 14. He also caught his lone target for one yard. The Seahawks have been looking for a spark in their rushing attack in recent weeks after trial periods with Alex Collins and Adrian Peterson in the lead role.
Penny provided that spark and then some. While the Texans' run defense isn’t stellar, and the team doesn’t have much to play for at this point, Penny still looked spry. And he isn’t some off-the-bench free agent, either. Some might forget, but Penny was a first-round pick back in the 2018 NFL Draft.
