Rashaad Penny Used Sparingly In Week 2 Victory

Friday, September 15, 9:25 AM

Philadelphia Eagles running back Rashaad Penny took three carries for nine yards and added one reception for five yards during the team's 34-28 win over the Minnesota Vikings. After being a healthy scratch last week against New England, the 27-year-old was able to make his way onto the active roster after Kenneth Gainwell (ribs) was ruled out Wednesday. However, it led to only four total touches as D'Andre Swift dominated the snap share out of the backfield to the tune of 181 total yards. Boston Scott (concussion) was given carries before Penny, and he could have taken them all if he had not exited the game early. The former Seattle Seahawk is buried on the depth chart and can safely be dropped to the waiver wire unless injuries occur ahead of him. We will have to wait and see if he will be active for the Eagles' next game against Tampa Bay.

Javonte Williams' Role Should Continue To Grow

Thursday, September 21, 11:22 PM

Denver Broncos running back Javonte Williams was expected to be eased into the offense early in 2023 after tearing his ACL and LCL in Week 4 of 2022. He's played exactly 45% of the offensive snaps in two games so far this year and has handled 25 carries for 96 yards (3.8 yards per carry) while catching six passes for 19 yards on nine targets. Despite averaging just over seven half-PPR points through two weeks, it was encouraging to see Williams get all but three of the carries in Denver's backfield in the Week 3 loss to the Washington Commanders. The 23-year-old's workload should only continue to grow as the season goes on, and in Week 3 he'll face a Miami Dolphins defense that has allowed the fourth-most half-PPR points to RBs through two games. Williams will be an RB2/3 in fantasy with a chance for his first breakout game in 2023.
