Homer (calf) is active for Sunday's contest versus the 49ers.
Analysis: Homer practiced in full during Week 13 prep but still entered the weekend as questionable for this game. While he'll be available to the Seahawks backfield Sunday along with Adrian Peterson, Rashaad Penny and DeeJay Dallas, Alex Collins will not be after the team made him a surprise health scratch. Peterson is expected to be the primary ballcarrier in his first action with Seattle, likely leaving scraps for Homer, Penny and Dallas.

Homer (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Analysis: Although Homer was a full participant for each of Seattle's three practice sessions this week, he'll still land on the injury report ahead of Sunday's matchup. He's logged two carries for six yards while hauling in three of four targets for 23 yards across his last two appearances.

Homer (calf) was listed as a full participant on Wednesday's estimated injury report, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Analysis: Homer followed an LP/DNP/DNP practice regimen last week before the Seahawks ruled him out ahead of a Week 12 road matchup with Washington. A calf injury was to blame, but he would have taken every rep if Seattle had held practice Wednesday. Assuming he maintains his activity level through Friday, Homer would join DeeJay Dallas and potentially Rashaad Penny (hamstring) behind starter Alex Collins (abdomen) on Sunday versus the 49ers. It should be noted that the Seahawks signed Adrian Peterson to the practice squad Wednesday, so he and undrafted rookie Josh Johnson are candidates to be elevated for game days.

Homer (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against Washington, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Analysis: Homer suffered the injury in the team's Week 11 matchup but was downgraded from a limited participant Thursday to no participation Friday. His absence leaves the Seahawks backfield thin, as Rashaad Penny (hamstring) has also been ruled out. As a result, Alex Collins and DeeJay Dallas will serve as the team's primary rushers.

Homer (calf) did not participate in Friday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Analysis: Homer apparently picked up the injury in the Seahawks Week 11 loss to the Cardinals, as he was listed as a limited participant in Thursday's practice before sitting out Friday. His status for Monday night should become clearer after Saturday's practice report comes out.
Nov 26, 2021 4:53 PM EST
Homer rushed once for four yards in Sunday's 23-13 loss to the Cardinals.
Analysis: Homer led the Seahawks backfield in snaps during last week's loss to the Packers, but he finished fourth this week even though Rashaad Penny (hamstring) left early. Nevertheless, Homer should be in the mix for increased usage if Penny missed time, but it probably won't be enough for fantasy relevance as long as Alex Collins and DeeJay Dallas are healthy.
Nov 22, 2021 8:59 AM EST
Homer rushed once for two yards and caught three of four targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 17-0 loss to the Packers.
Analysis: Homer led the Seahawks backfield with 31 of 61 offensive snaps (51 percent). Alex Collins still handled a majority of the touches (11), but Homer's pass-blocking abilities kept him on the field to protect Russell Wilson, who was making his return from a finger injury. Chris Carson (neck) could return in Week 11 versus the Cardinals, but Collins will likely handle a bulk of the work until he does.
Nov 15, 2021 9:01 AM EST
Homer rushed four times for nine yards and caught his lone target for three yards in Sunday's 31-7 win over the Jaguars. He also returned an onside kick for a touchdown in the fourth quarter.
Analysis: Homer finished second among Seahawks running backs with 17 offensive snaps, as Alex Collins led the backfield with 27. However, he made his biggest play of the season on special teams, snagging an onside kick and returning it 44 yards for a score. Homer's offensive role is secure on passing downs, but he has only generated 165 total yards through eight games.
Nov 1, 2021 7:26 AM EST
Homer rushed once for 14 yards in Monday's 13-10 loss to the Saints.
Analysis: Homer played on just 12 of the teams 56 offensive snaps, while Alex Collins and Rashaad Penny split the majority of the running back snaps at 22 and 20, respectively. Aside from Homer's one solid carry for 14 yards, the backfield was not particularly effective on the ground against the Saints. Going forward, Homer will likely struggle to see enough playing time to contribute in a meaningful way for fantasy purposes. The 23-year-old must compete for touches with Collins, Penny, and DeeJay Dallas while Carson is on injured reserve with a neck injury.
Oct 27, 2021 5:52 AM EST
Homer rushed twice for 27 yards and caught his lone target for 27 yards in Sunday's 23-20 overtime loss to the Steelers.
Analysis: The Seahawks recorded just four plays that went further than 20 yards, and Homer accounted for two of them. The third-year back could handle an expanded role in Week 7 against the Saints, as Chris Carson (neck) is out for the next two weeks while Alex Collins (hip) is uncertain for that matchup. However, Rashaad Penny (calf) is on track to return for that game, while DeeJay Dallas, who logged 50 yards on nine touches this week, will also be in the mix for increased playing time.
Oct 18, 2021 10:22 AM EST
Homer rushed once for five yards and caught his lone target for 13 yards in Thursday's 26-17 loss to the Rams.
Analysis: Homer ran ahead of DeeJay Dallas through the first four weeks of the season, but Dallas jumped Homer in the pecking order with Chris Carson (neck) out Thursday. Neither player was particularly effective for fantasy purposes. Homer likely won't have much fantasy value this year considering his snap share took a step back with Carson out of the lineup despite the negative game script.
Oct 8, 2021 8:16 AM EST
Homer could see an increased workload in Thursday's game against the Rams following news that Chris Carson (neck) is inactive.
Analysis: Alex Collins is expected to be the main beneficiary of Carson's absence, especially with early-down work, but Homer and possibly DeeJay Dallas could enjoy modest increases in their respective snaps as well. Homer typically handles the passing down reps because he's a sturdy pass blocker and an evasive pass catcher, and that role could be key with a potential high-scoring tilt on tap. Through four games, he has rushed once for five yards and caught five passes (five targets) for 62 yards.
Oct 7, 2021 3:51 PM EST
Homer rushed once for five yards in Sunday's 28-21 win over the 49ers.
Analysis: Homer's usage is reserved for passing scenarios. With the Seahawks leading for most of the game, he finished with just nine offensive snaps. Alex Collins out-snapped him with 22 and garnered 78 yards and a touchdown on 12 touches. Homer could have more of a role Thursday against the Rams if the game turns into a shootout, but Chris Carson is still the only dependable fantasy option in Seattle's backfield.
Oct 4, 2021 7:15 AM EST
Homer caught all three targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 30-17 loss to the Vikings.
Analysis: Homer logged 16 offensive snaps, finishing second behind Chris Carson (23) and barely ahead of Alex Collins (14). His increased usage was a direct result of the game script, as Homer is the team's best pass-blocking running back, and he's elusive after the catch. Thus, Homer's role should stay consistent even when Rashaad Penny (calf) returns to the lineup. However, Homer shouldn't be viewed as the primary backup to Carson, as Penny and Carson have frames that are better-suited for workhorse roles.
Sep 27, 2021 7:58 AM EST
Homer recorded two receptions for 14 yards on two targets in Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Titans.
Analysis: Homer finished Sunday's game with 14 carries, ranking second behind Chris Carson (34) but ahead of Alex Collins (six). While Carson is operating as the clear lead back, Homer's ability to pass-block and catch passes make him the ideal fit for the hurry-up offense. That likely won't translate to fantasy relevance as long as Carson is healthy, though.
Sep 20, 2021 7:43 AM EST
Homer didn't record a touch in Sunday's 28-16 win over the Colts.
Analysis: Alex Collins was a healthy scratch and Rashaad Penny left with a calf injury, but neither Homer nor DeeJay Dallas played much in Week 1. Perhaps that changes if Penny's forced to miss time, though the Seahawks may be willing to use Chris Carson as a bell cow for the time being.
Sep 13, 2021 7:24 AM EST
Homer made the Seahawks' 53-man roster, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Homer was one of five running backs to make the team's initial roster. The 23-year-old is the team's best pass-blocking running back, so he should be locked into some playing time protecting quarterback Russell Wilson. However, he likely won't yield much fantasy value.
Sep 1, 2021 7:18 AM EST
Homer (calf) passed a physical examination and was activated from the PUP list Tuesday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
Analysis: Homer suffered the calf injury in the spring and was still sidelined for the past few weeks, but he was able to get back on the practice field Tuesday. The 23-year-old should compete with 2020 fourth-rounder DeeJay Dallas for the No. 3 role at running back now that he's healthy.
Aug 24, 2021 10:13 PM EST
Coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Homer (calf) will come off the PUP list next week, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Homer finished last year on IR with a knee injury and now has been out since the spring with a calf injury. The Seahawks mostly seem to value his pass blocking, which means Homer could be left without a role if the team decides DeeJay Dallas or another back is a better choice for third downs.
Aug 13, 2021 1:35 PM EST
The Seahawks placed Homer (calf) on the PUP list to start training camp, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
Analysis: Homer also missed time during June minicamp due to his calf injury, so his status warrants monitoring. Being forced to sit out a significant portion of training camp could impact Homer's chances of beating out DeeJay Dallas and Alex Collins for the No. 3 backfield role behind Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny (knee).
