Player Outlook
Walker is an easy RB to want in Fantasy because he's young and explosive, but an underwhelming 2023 and cloudy 2024 drags down his potential. In the 10 games in which he had at least 15 touches last season, he averaged 16 PPR points per game. In the other five? 7.8 PPR points per game, though that includes a matchup he left early (9.2 if you take it out). The same thing happened in 2022 -- in 10 games with at least 15 touches he averaged 17.1 PPR points per game and did practically bupkis in the others. And since most of those touches throughout his career have been carries, not catches, his PPR upside is really limited. New Seahawks playcaller Ryan Grubb has a track record of leaning into the passing game, and with a dynamic trio of receivers on staff that figures to be the case in 2024. That stings Walker much more than the presence of Zach Charbonnet, who was active for nine of 10 games Walker had a lot of carries in and wasn't a nuisance near the goal line. Walker figures to be much more consistent in non-PPR than full-PPR, but in both formats he should get taken between 38th and 50th overall as a good No. 2 RB.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: No competition arrives via draft

    Walker is expected to remain the No. 1 running back for the 2024 season after the Seahawks didn't select a running back in the NFL Draft. The Seahawks did sign George Holani and TaMerik Williams as undrafted free agents, per Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic, but neither player presents a real threat to Walker's job. While Walker and 2023 second-round pick Zach Charbonnet split snaps last season, Walker was still the clear No. 1 back with 219 carries for 905 yards (4.1 YPC) and eight touchdowns. He added 29 receptions for 259 yards and a score. The Seahawks added three linemen in the draft, including third-round pick Christian Haynes, so they're hoping their offensive line will show more consistency this year.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Leads backfield with 18 touches

    Walker (shoulder) rushed 17 times for 78 yards and caught his only target for three yards in Sunday's 21-20 win over the Cardinals. Walker was cleared of the shoulder injury that had plagued him in recent weeks and led Seattle's backfield with 17 carries in Sunday's thrilling comeback win. While the 9-8 Seahawks still narrowly missed the playoffs, the team's lead back turned in another solid fantasy season. Walker gained over 1,000 combined yards from scrimmage while scoring nine touchdowns over 15 games, numbers that somewhat mirror his impressive 228/1,050/9 rookie rushing line last season. The 23-year-old will enter the third year of his rookie deal likely leading Seattle's rising backfield duo of he and Zach Charbonnet in 2024.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Will suit up Week 18

    Walker (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle reports. Walker missed two games with an oblique injury in November and early December and now has been playing through a shoulder injury the past few weeks. He'll suit up again as the Seahawks battle for a playoff spot, likely leading the team in carries while Zach Charbonnet handles more of the snaps in passing situations.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Returns as limited participant

    Walker (shoulder) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. After missing Wednesday's session due to a lingering shoulder injury, Walker was able to get back on the practice field one day later, which didn't happen until last Friday ahead of this past Sunday's game against the Steelers. This seems to confirm coach Pete Carroll's comments to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times on Wednesday that Walker is in a better spot this week as opposed to last week. Walker has one more chance to get back to full Friday before the Seahawks potentially give him a designation for Sunday's regular-season finale at Arizona. That said, if he's able to suit up for that contest, he should resume his role as the team's top running back, which has resulted in 131 yards from scrimmage and one rushing TD on 30 touches in the two games in which he's played through his current health concern.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Walker (shoulder) was listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Earlier Wednesday, head coach Pete Carroll told Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic that Walker took part in the team's walkthrough, but the running back ultimately went down as having logged no activity on the Seahawks' first injury report of Week 18 prep. A shoulder issue has been to blame for Walker's practice restrictions for three weeks in a row, and despite leaving this past Sunday's loss to the Steelers in the third quarter, he racked up 30 touches for 131 yards from scrimmage and one rushing touchdown over the last two games. Meanwhile, No. 2 back Zach Charbonnet has seen his touch count fall off a cliff of late, as he's turned just 10 into 37 total yards during that same span. As long as Walker is able to emerge from this week and suit up Sunday at Arizona, he likely will get the bulk of the work between him and Charbonnet.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Takes part in walkthrough

    Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Walker (shoulder) participated in Wednesday's walkthrough and looked OK, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. Walker has played through a shoulder injury the last two games, but he didn't return to Sunday's loss to the Steelers after taking a big hit early in the third quarter, despite being listed as probable to check back into the contest. According to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times, Carroll added that Walker looked better Wednesday than he did a week ago at the same point, so the running back seems to be trending in the right direction ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale at Arizona. Wednesday's practice report will reveal how much work Walker was able to muster to kick off Week 18 prep.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Expected to play in Week 17

    Walker (shoulder/illness) is slated to suit up Sunday against the Steelers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. For the second week in a row, Walker is carrying a questionable tag into Sunday after he didn't mix into drills until Friday's practice, when he was deemed a limited participant. After that practice, head coach Pete Carroll told Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic that Walker would be a game-time decision this weekend, and Schefter noted in his report that the Seahawks are concerned about the shoulder injury that he aggravated last Sunday in Tennessee. As such, Walker may be subject to a pregame workout before the team makes an official ruling on his status when the team's inactive list is posted about 90 minutes before a 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff. If Walker is limited or even sidelined, Zach Charbonnet would be the likely beneficiary out of Seattle's backfield.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: To be game-time decision Sunday

    Coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Walker (shoulder/illness), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Steelers, will be a game-time call this weekend, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. After sitting out the the first two sessions of Week 17 prep due to an existing shoulder injury and a listed illness, Walker got back on the practice field Friday as a limited participant, per John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site. Walker followed the exact same regimen last week before being deemed questionable, but Carroll relayed an expectation at the time that Walker would suit up this past Sunday at Tennessee, which came to pass. Considering Carroll was more tepid regarding Walker this time around, the running back's status bears watching in advance of Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Gets 'questionable' tag

    Walker (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Walker didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday but was seen stretching prior to Friday's session, per Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune. It remains to be seen if Walker did enough to be listed as a participant when the Seahawks release their final injury report Friday. The team likely will turn to Zach Charbonnet in a high-usage role if Walker doesn't end up playing Sunday.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Sits out another practice

    Walker (shoulder/illness) officially didn't practice Thursday, Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle reports. Walker was present but not participating during the portion of Thursday's session open to the media, and he indeed went down as a DNP for a second consecutive day. If he follows last week's practice regimen, he'll be listed as limited Friday and questionable for Sunday's game versus the Steelers, but there's the added roadblock of an illness that he's dealing with this time around, so his status for Week 17 is up in the air at the moment.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Playing Sunday

    Walker (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game at Tennessee. The second half of Walker's 2023 season has been characterized by injuries, with the current shoulder issue capping the second-year running back to one limited session (Friday) during Week 16 prep. Nevertheless, coach Pete Carroll told Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic on Friday that Walker would play Sunday, and Adam Schefter of ESPN mimicked that sentiment via a report late Saturday. Now that Walker's status has been confirmed, there's a good chance he handles a similar workload to last Monday's win against the Eagles, when he parlayed a 56 percent snap share into 22 touches for 112 yards from scrimmage and a rushing TD. Meanwhile, reserve RB Zach Charbonnet logged 44 percent of snaps into four carries for 16 yards in that contest.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Expected to play

    Coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Walker (shoulder) will play in Sunday's game against the Titans even though he's officially listed as questionable, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. Carroll apparently liked what he saw during Friday's practice, which marked Walker's first participation of the week. The running back's absences Wednesday and Thursday don't seem too concerning, especially given the quick turnaround after a Monday win over the Eagles in which Walker took 22 touches for 112 yards and a TD. Cautious fantasy managers may nonetheless want to track the situation ahead of a 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday to make sure Walker is indeed active against a Titans defense that has five starters and two key backups ruled out this week.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Questionable for Sunday

    Walker (shoulder) returned to practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Tennessee, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. Walker missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, after taking 22 touches for 112 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 20-17 win over the Eagles. His return to practice Friday -- and ability to play through the fourth quarter Monday -- would seem to hint at active status this Sunday, with further updates likely available from coach Pete Carroll and national NFL reporters alike.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Still not practicing this week

    Walker (shoulder) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. After sitting out Wednesday's walkthrough due to a shoulder issue, Walker now has missed back-to-back sessions to begin Week 16 prep. His activity level Friday likely will be key to how the Seahawks decide to list him on their final injury report ahead of Sunday's game at Tennessee. If Walker is limited or even ends up sidelined, the team again would turn over its backfield to rookie second-round pick Zach Charbonnet.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Struggles in return to action

    Walker (oblique) had eight carries for 21 yards and caught four of five targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 28-16 loss to San Francisco. Walker returned from a two-game layoff and was greeted by a buzzsaw in the form of the 49ers' defense Sunday. The 23-year-old wound up receivig two more touches than backfield mate Zach Charbonnet (knee), who was limited in practice this week with an injury of his own. Walker struggled while splitting carries in his first game back, but the lowered usage was likely a result of being eased back into action. Look for the power back's touches to increase in Week 15 with the added day of rest and recuperation ahead of next Monday's tilt against Philadelphia.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Back in action Sunday

    Walker (oblique) is active for Sunday's game at San Francisco. After missing the past two contests due to a strained oblique, Walker is back in action for the first time since Week 11. Both he and fellow running back Zach Charbonnet (knee) followed the same practice regimen this week, going DNP on Wednesday, limited Thursday and then full Friday. In the eight outings (Weeks 1-4, 6 and 8-10) in which both have been healthy this season, Walker racked up 123 touches for 500 yards from scrimmage and seven TDs versus Charbonnet's respective 51-284-0 line. A similar breakdown likely can be expected between the two Sunday.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Appears set to return Sunday

    Walker (oblique) is listed as questionable but expected to play in Sunday's game against San Francisco, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Walker has missed the Seahawks' past two games due to an oblique injury, but he practiced fully Friday to clear up most of the lingering concern about his health. Assuming Walker is indeed cleared when Seattle releases its inactive list 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff, he'll likely return to the lead-back role that has been handled by Zach Charbonnet (knee) in his stead. Charbonnet is also listed as questionable and expected to suit up Sunday, per Schefter, but the Seahawks could be without quarterback Geno Smith, who is viewed as a game-time call due to a groin injury.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Questionable after full practice

    Walker (oblique) was a full practice participant Friday, with head coach Pete Carroll expressing optimism that the running back will play in Sunday's game at San Francisco despite being listed as questionable, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Walker and Zach Charbonnet (knee) followed the same practice routine this week, sitting out Wednesday and logging limited sessions Thursday before upgrading to full activity Friday. Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune agrees with Carroll's assessment that Walker is on track to return to action this weekend, though Walker had been ceding about half the running-back snaps to Charbonnet before missing the past two games. The rookie has typically gotten the bulk of his work on passing downs when Walker is available, with the latter handling the majority of carries.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Returns to limited practice

    Walker (oblique) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. The same can be said for No. 2 running back Zach Charbonnet (knee), meaning Friday's session will be key for both players as the Seahawks prepare for Sunday's visit to the 49ers. Walker has missed two straight games due to a strained oblique, and while Charbonnet has been filling in for him, he sustained a bruised knee in the fourth quarter last Thursday at Dallas. Walker's upcoming workload, if he's active, may be contingent on Charbonnet's availability, but if both are inhibited or sidelined, DeeJay Dallas could be the Seahawks' primary runner this weekend.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Status in doubt for Thursday

    Walker (oblique) is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game in Dallas, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Walker has yet to practice since suffering an oblique injury Week 11 against the Rams, and his listing on the Seahawks' final Week 13 injury report Wednesday backs up a report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network that the running back is in line to miss a second straight contest. Assuming he's indeed inactive Thursday, Walker will yield most of Seattle's backfield snaps to second-round pick Zach Charbonnet, while DeeJay Dallas and Kenny McIntosh will be the candidates to support the rookie.
