Kenneth Walker News

  • Kenneth Walker era starts now · Oct 10, 2022

    Seahawks rookie running back Kenneth Walker will take over the team's lead back role following Rashaad Penny's fractured fibula.

    It didn't take Walker long to announce his presence, quickly ripping off a 69 yard touchdown run, the first of his career. He finished the day with 88 yards and a touchdown on eight carries. How long contract-year Rashaad Penny will be sidelined is still being determined but in all likelihood Walker will assume the starting role and not look back. Walker, DLF's RB17, will be a popular trade target over the coming weeks and is already on the rise.

  • Kenneth Walker struggling · Sep 26, 2022

    Seahawks rookie running back Kenneth Walker had three carries for 19 yards and three catches for another 14 yards in Seattle's loss to Atlanta.

    So, why did Seattle take him with the 41st overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft again? Walker has been an afterthought since coming back from his preseason injury and while the Seahawks could just be easing him in, dynasty managers are wanting to see a lot more usage from him going forward. With just seven carries and five catches in two games played, Walker is light years away from lineups at the moment. His grasp on the #6 overall rookie ranking is tenuous, at best.

  • Kenneth Walker quiet in debut · Sep 19, 2022

    Seahawks rookie running back Kenneth Walker posted ten rushing yards, two catches and five receiving yards in Seattle's loss to San Francisco.

    The adrenaline that came along with Russell Wilson's return clearly wore off Seattle as they were manhandled by the 49ers in this one. Walker, along with most everyone else on the Seattle roster, was shut down on the road. Seattle only had a total of 14 rushing attempts as they played from behind most of the day and that zapped any kind of value from Walker's day. On the plus side, Rashaad Penny had just 15 yards on six carries of his own. Seattle may have a long season, but our 5th ranked rookie should have better days moving forward. He remains a hold in dynasty leagues for patient owners.

  • Kenneth Walker set for NFL debut · Sep 16, 2022

    Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll anticipates Kenneth Walker making his NFL debut this week.

    With Rashaad Penny healthy (for the moment), it looks like Walker is set to form a two-man committee to start his career. His debut is much anticipated in dynasty leagues as his rookie ranking continues to climb as a result of other rookies falling flat to start the season. His preseason was cut short by hernia surgery, but things are looking good for the weekend. Walker remains a strong hold in dynasty leagues and looks like he could have been undervalued a smidge early in the rookie draft process.

  • Kenneth Walker to undergo surgery · Aug 17, 2022

    Seahawks rookie running back Kenneth Walker will miss the remainder of the preseason after undergoing a "procedue"

    There was not explanation by Pete Carroll as to what the surgery was for and no guarantee that Walker would be back by week one of the regular season, though he said that was the goal. Rashaad Penny has returned from a minor injury and now looks to have the starting role all to himself though other depth chart names will still factor. The Seahawks are a leaking ship in multiple spots but there has been excitement surrounding the run-game following the team's selection of Walker. As long as the rookie returns quickly and without setback, he'll remain a highly selected rookie. He's listed as DLF's RB17.

  • Kenneth Walker part of RBBC · Jul 16, 2022

    With veteran Seattle running back Rashaad Penny expected to start, rookie Kenneth Walker may only have a limited role as part of a larger RBBC in his rookie season.

    A selection of Walker is primarily a selection for 2023 and beyond as Penny is in a contract season and there's little chance the Seahawks bring him back on a long-term deal or apply the franchise tag. Walker wasn't a prolific receiver for Michigan State and passing-down duties are expected to fall upon one of DeeJay Dallas or Travis Homer. Walker's best chance for upside production is found upon the training table frequented by Penny, certainly not out of the question in 2022. Chris Carson remains in the mix though has yet to be cleared to return and odds are worsening by the day that he suits up again. There's little doubt Walker holds extreme potential beyond 2022 and his rookie RB2 status has remained steadfast all off-season since landing with the run-first Seahawks. Kenneth Walker carries a somewhat agreeable RB16 ranking.

    comment Now healthy, Walker is looking like the explosive playmaker he was at Wake Forest and Michigan State. The Seattle offense is far more fun and efficient than we expected. He is flying up dynasty running back rankings as the older backs fall out of the top tiers.
