Seahawks "comfortable" with Kenneth Walker III in three-down role

Seattle Seahawks running back Kenneth Walker III has been impressing in training camp and the team is reportedly "comfortable" with him in a three-down role, according to Pete Carroll.

What It Means:

Walker has "turned the page" in pass protection, according to Carroll, who added that the rookie could "play all three downs and we'd feel comfortable with it." This report comes on the same day Rashaad Penny was reported to be dealing with a tightness in his groin, which could force him to miss some practice time. Seattle's confidence in Walker could lead to an increased role should Penny miss any time.

Walker is the RB38 in numberFire's preseason fantasy rankings. Our models expect him to handle 168.7 carries for 712.1 yards, with 19.7 receptions on 27.0 targets for 137.5 receiving yards and 0.70 receiving touchdowns.
