One carry in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-17

Dallas rushed once for three yards in Sunday's 37-31 overtime win versus the Lions. He also returned three kicks for 67 yards.

Dallas is settling in as the No. 3 back behind Kenneth Walker and rookie Zach Charbonnet. He's a useful player in hurry-up formations, but his fantasy utility will be negligible as long as Walker and Charbonnet are upright.

Three touches in opener

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-11

Dallas rushed twice for four yards and caught his lone target for 14 yards in Sunday's 30-13 loss to the Rams. He also returned one kickoff for 34 yards and one punt for 18 yards.

Dallas and rookie Zach Charbonnet both played 11 offensive snaps. Charbonnet finished with 11 yards on three carries. Dallas and Charbonnet are both fighting for reps behind Kenneth Walker, but Dallas isn't expected to play more than a limited number of passing downs.

Makes 53-man roster

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-30

Dallas earned a spot on the Seahawks' 53-man roster.

Dallas' role wasn't guaranteed, as he has never played more than 188 snaps in a season through three years in the league. The 2020 fourth-round pick is listed as the team's top kick and punt returner, which helps his job security. As long as Kenneth Walker and Zach Charbonnet are healthy, Dallas likely won't handle many offensive reps.

Falls flat in preseason start

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-10

Dallas rushed twice for one yard and wasn't targeted in Thursday's 24-13 preseason win over the Vikings.

Dallas got the start in Seattle's preseason opener but failed to find any running room before giving way to rookie second-round pick Zach Charbonnet, who turned six touches into 28 scrimmage yards. Charbonnet's expected to beat out Dallas for the backup spot behind Kenneth Walker (groin), but Dallas could close the gap if he posts a stronger performance in the second preseason game, which will be against the Cowboys on Aug. 19.

Best rushing season

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-16

Dallas carried 35 times for 186 yards and caught 17 of 19 targets for 126 yards through 15 games during the 2022 season. He also returned 14 punts for 102 yards and 12 kicks for 270 yards.

When the whole backfield was healthy, Dallas was often left out of the rotation, but when Rashaad Penny (leg) and Travis Homer (ankle) went down with injuries, Dallas got some run and was effective. After posting 3.2 and 4.2 yards per carry, respectively, through his first two NFL seasons, Dallas logged an efficient 5.3 yards per carry in 2022. Dallas is entering the final year of his contract in 2023 and is a good bet to make the team, especially if Homer and Penny leave in free agency.

Suiting up in wild-card round

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-14

Dallas (ankle/quadriceps) is listed as active Saturday at San Francisco.

Despite being capped to a pair of limited practices before this wild-card matchup due to ankle and quad injuries, Dallas will be available to the Seahawks offense. With Travis Homer (ankle) on injured reserve, Dallas doesn't have much competition for reps behind starting running back Kenneth Walker, as Godwin Igwebuike is the only other option that's active Saturday. Over the last three games, such a role has amounted to 11 carries for 82 yards and 10 catches (on 11 targets) for 84 yards and no TDs for Dallas.

Status in question for Saturday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-12

Dallas (ankle/quadriceps) is listed as questionable for Saturday's wild-card game in San Francisco, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Prior to Seattle handing him a designation, Dallas missed Tuesday's walkthrough before sitting out again Wednesday due to ankle and quadriceps injuries. He's been able to play in each of the past three games with little to no practice reps, and Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reported Tuesday that there's an expectation that Dallas plays this weekend. In the end, Dallas' status will be confirmed, one way or another, about 90 minutes before Saturday's 4:30 p.m. ET kickoff. If he's available, he'll be a complementary option in the Seahawks backfield behind starter Kenneth Walker.

Stays sidelined at practice

Dallas (ankle/quadriceps) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Dallas has kicked off preparations for Saturday's wild-card game in San Francisco with two straight absences, but there's an expectation that he'll be able to suit up this weekend, per Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune. A return to the practice field Thursday would be a step in the right direction for Dallas, but Thursday's injury report will reveal as much. If he's active Saturday, he'll serve as the direct backup to Kenneth Walker (ankle) with Travis Homer (ankle) on injured reserve.

Sits out first practice of week

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-10

Dallas (ankle/quadriceps) was listed as a non-participant for Tuesday's walk-through practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Though Dallas was not on the field for the start of prep for Saturday's wild-card game in San Francisco, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune relays that the running back is fully expected to suit up this weekend. After Travis Homer (ankle) was moved to injured reserve prior to last week's regular-season finale, Dallas took over as the top change-of-pace option behind Kenneth Walker in Sunday's 19-16 overtime win over the Rams. Dallas played 11 of the Seahawks' 70 snaps on offense and finished with two carries for 29 yards and one catch for minus-3 yards.
