1A good shot at the No. 3 RB role
With Chris Carson’s (neck) career over, DeeJay Dallas has a clear path to the No. 3 RB job. He needs to beat out Travis Homer, a 2019 sixth-round pick with a similar skill set and an extra year of experience.
2Running behind an injury-prone starter
Rashaad Penny broke through last season, but most of his first four seasons have been plagued by injuries. A betting person might believe Penny has a relatively low probability of remaining healthy all year. A third-string Dallas would have a good chance of earning sparse, or even occasional, deep-league streaming value.
3Two years remaining on his contract
Dallas has two more years on his rookie contract. The question is whether Seattle is committed to him as a longer-term contributor. We’ll probably know by mid-season.
