    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine could receive limited touches during the early portion of the season but has the chance to lead the team in carries during some games in November and December, in the opinion of CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler.

    Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on Perine during the preseason to see what his role will be for Week 1. Perine should see more touches as the season goes on, which will make him a value option in some leagues. Perine can be considered a No. 4 or No. 5 running back in fantasy leagues and can be a handcuff to Rob Kelley.

    Washington Redskins rookie RB Samaje Perine already has a good feel for the game, good feet, good vision and good strength, according to running backs coach Randy Jordan. Perine has also impressed with his catching ability. Jordan said Perine catches the football 'so much better' than he thought he could.

    Huddle Up: Perine has deserved hype heading into his first year, but the Redskins are deep at running back, too, with Rob Kelley, Chris Thompson and others. Perine isn't guaranteed the starting position, but he has a good shot to win the job. Drafting him in RB3 to RB4 territory is rational for now.

    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine drew praise from running backs coach Randy Jordan for his quickness and elusiveness during rookie minicamp, and head coach Jay Gruden praised Perine's technique. 'You can tell his pad level is always down and he had good vision and he has good feet in the hole, and he caught the ball well,' Gruden said.

    Huddle Up: Rob Kelley should enter the season as the lead back, but there is no guarantee that he is the long-term answer. Perine could play his way into a sizeable role before the end of the year, and he is worth a look as a RB4.

    The Washington Redskins selected Oklahoma RB Samaje Perine with the No. 114 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Saturday, April 29.

    Huddle Up: Perine will compete for touches, but he could be fast-tracked with reports of Matt Jones being on the trade block. Perine is a big-bodied back at 5-11, 233 pounds, and could slide into the conversation of No. 4 fantasy back in upcoming drafts. Presumed starter Rob Kelley enters a make-or-break situation.
