Huddle Up: Perine had a couple of strong performances last year, but he mostly underwhelmed. Throw in his limited work in the passing game, and even if Perine is the starter, he'll only be a RB3 for fantasy owners.

Huddle Up: Perine may have a chance to compete for the starting running back job next season and could be a late-round draft pick in drafts.

Huddle Up: Perine took over the starting job this season when Rob Kelley suffered a season-ending injury and could have a chance to compete for the job during training camp. He could be a late-round pick in drafts next season.

Huddle Up: Perine has received at least 12 carries in each of the last six games and should receive a similar workload this week. He has rushed for at least 50 yards in only one of his last four games and may only be a flex option for most owners.

Huddle Up: Perine has a terrific matchup against the New York Giants in Washington's season finale. He can be started despite disappointing outings over the last month.
Posted: 12/27/2017 1:13pm ET
Huddle Up: It's been a lackluster few weeks for Perine. He has averaged a paltry 2.88 yards per carry on 60 carries over his last four games. He does have a great opportunity to rebound against one of the worst defenses in the NFL in the New York Giants, so give him one last chance to make up for himself.

Huddle Up: Perine was examined for an Achilles' issue but was able to return and finished with 20 touches. He's really been struggling with efficiency lately, so he's no more than a flex play in the finale.
Posted: 12/24/2017 12:40pm ET
Huddle Up: Perine has posted decent numbers so far against the Denver Broncos in Week 16 and should be able to improve on those numbers. He will be a No. 2 running back or a flex option if he plays in Week 17.
Posted: 12/24/2017 12:34pm ET
Huddle Up: Perine entered the game with a hamstring injury and is now dealing with an Achilles' tendon injury. Kapri Bibbs will be the No. 1 running back while Perine is out and could be at least a flex option if he starts in Week 17.
Posted: 12/24/2017 8:54am ET
Huddle Up: Perine suffered the injury during practice this week and will be a risky option for owners because he could be limited by the injury. Owners could consider benching Perine if they have better options available.
Posted: 12/24/2017 6:08am ET
Huddle Up: Perine was listed as questionable on the injury report after tweaking his groin in practice Thursday, Dec. 21, which forced him to be held out of practice Friday, Dec. 22. Regardless of whether or not Perine is active, RB Kapri Bibbs is expected to see a great deal of playing time against his former team but should be viewed as nothing more than a low-end flex option.
Posted: 12/22/2017 9:46pm ET
Huddle Up: Perine has been struggling recently, posting 45 yards or less in his last three games and averaging just 2.8 yards per carry in that span. Even if he does suit up, he would be no more than a desperation flex play.
Posted: 12/22/2017 2:16pm ET
Huddle Up: Perine is a roll of the dice for fantasy owners in Week 16. Check back Sunday morning for an update on his status. If he cannot go then newcomer Kapri Bibbs would be leaned up for more work.
Posted: 12/21/2017 12:20pm ET
Huddle Up: Perine looks to be questionable for this week's contest against the Denver Broncos. The Redskins are already banged up at running back, and if Perine can't go then there will likely be a heavy dose of Kapri Bibbs. Bibbs is more valuable in PPR leagues but should be added if available depending on Perine's status.
Posted: 12/17/2017 2:19pm ET
Huddle Up: It was a tough afternoon on the ground for both teams in this one, actually. Perine faces another difficult matchup in Week 16 when the Broncos and their stout rush defense come calling.
Posted: 12/10/2017 8:31pm ET
Huddle Up: Perine has followed back-to-back 100-yard games with two straight lackluster outings. The good news for his fantasy owners is that he has almost no competition for touches, giving him a decent floor as a flex option moving forward.
Posted: 11/30/2017 9:55pm ET
Huddle Up: After gaining 126 and 130 total yards, respectively, in his previous two games, Perine managed just 69 against a Cowboys team that had lost three in a row by an average of more than 23 points per game. It was a disappointing showing and one that casts some doubt about Perine's reliability entering the fantasy playoffs.
Posted: 11/30/2017 6:54pm ET
Huddle Up: Perine avoided entering concussion protocol, which means his fantasy owners won't have to worry about his status going forward. He continues to be the workhorse on early downs for Washington.
Posted: 11/30/2017 6:40pm ET
Huddle Up: If Perine is unable to return, third-down back Byron Marshall could also see some work on early downs. If Marshall is given a chance to lead the backfield, he will be a potential waiver wire target for Week 14 if Perine's injury is serious.
Posted: 11/29/2017 3:26pm ET
Huddle Up: Perine is the bellcow in D.C. now that Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson are done for the season, and the rookie stepped up with 100 yards rushing against the Giants on Thanksgiving night. He's a solid RB2 across the board.
Posted: 11/28/2017 3:24pm ET
Huddle Up: Perine has quickly turned into Washington's featured back and has also quickly proven that he deserves to be just that. With a favorable schedule for the remainder of the year, Perine is solidly in the RB2 conversation.
Posted: 11/27/2017 1:48pm ET
Huddle Up: Perine has turned into a viable workhorse with Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson sidelined. In his last two tilts Perine has averaged 23.5 carries and 108.5 yards on the ground. He even added three catches for 30 yards last week. Keep starting him as an RB2 as long as he's healthy.
Posted: 11/23/2017 8:41pm ET
Huddle Up: Perine has delivered more than 100 yards from scrimmage in back-to-back games, and he is taking command of the backfield. He looks like a solid RB2 against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13.
Posted: 11/23/2017 4:45pm ET
Huddle Up: Perine should receive most of the work at running back with Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson out of the season. He can be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 11/22/2017 6:03pm ET
Huddle Up: Perine should be able to play against the New York Giants, but owners will need to check the inactive list to make sure. Perine should receive most of the touches at running back because the injuries the team has at the position and should be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option in standard leagues.
Posted: 11/21/2017 2:12pm ET
Huddle Up: Perine is the Redskins' workhorse running back going forward, with Byron Marshall spotting him on passing downs. Perine really showed up last week and established himself as Washington's go-to back thanks to injuries to fellow backfield mates. View Perine as an RB2 for the remainder of the season.
Posted: 11/20/2017 1:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Perine should be able to play this week and will receive most of the work at running back because of the injury to Chris Thompson. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in most leagues in Week 12.
Posted: 11/19/2017 6:31pm ET
Huddle Up: With Chris Thompson going down with a broken leg, Perine should be in line for a sizeable workload going forward. He will have RB2 upside as a major player in Washington's solid offense.
Posted: 10/15/2017 6:51pm ET
Huddle Up: Perine salvaged his afternoon with a receiving touchdown, but with Rob Kelley sidelined, it was Chris Thompson leading the team with 16 rush attempts. Even if Kelley missed more time, it is going to be tough to trust Perine as a starter against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 7.
Posted: 10/11/2017 7:01pm ET
Huddle Up: With Kelley unlikely to suit up this weekend, this will be a situation to monitor, as Perine could be a potential RB2 for owners. At the very least, he'll make a formidable FLEX option in the event Kelley has to sit. This is also unfortunate news for Thompson, who has shown plenty of potential that he can put up some nice numbers with increased work out of the backfield. Perine looks like the clear biggest beneficiary from Kelley being sidelined.
Posted: 9/30/2017 11:17am ET
Huddle Up: Perine may receive a majority of the carries this week if Rob Kelley misses another game. He is rushing for only 2.9 yards per carry this season but can still be a flex option in standard leagues because of touches he may receive.
Posted: 9/29/2017 3:13pm ET
Huddle Up: This marks the second straight day of fully practicing, which suggests he will be fine for Monday night. The rookie's value is mostly predicated on whether RB Rob Kelley (rib) also plays. Check Saturday's status to get a better idea and Monday's inactives for the full picture.
Posted: 9/28/2017 3:27pm ET
Huddle Up: Perine received most of the carries in Week 3 and could receive a similar workload if Rob Kelley is unable to play this week. He has rushed for 116 yards over the last two weeks but will be facing a tough Kansas City Chiefs defense this week. He can still be a flex option in fantasy leagues if Kelley sits.
Posted: 9/24/2017 7:32pm ET
Huddle Up: Perine had 19 carries for 48 yards while adding a catch for six yards before departing. He was seeing a heavy workload with Rob Kelley sidelined.
Posted: 9/17/2017 9:29pm ET
Huddle Up: Perine had the most touches out of the three Washington backs, and he did a pretty solid job. The rookie out of the University of Oklahoma has all kinds of upside, but in a crowded backfield it's uncertain who will be the bellcow from week to week. They're using a hot-hand approach in Washington which is maddening to fantasy owners.
Posted: 8/19/2017 8:54pm ET
Huddle Up: Rob Kelley struggled in the same game, which should only add steam to the Perine hype train. There is a good chance that no Washington back will emerge as an every-week fantasy starter, but Perine is worth a shot as a RB5 in case he becomes top dog in the backfield.
Posted: 8/19/2017 9:18am ET
Huddle Up: Perine fumbled, dropped a pass and struggled in pass protection in his first NFL game, and ESPN's John Keim speculated shortly thereafter that 'a gap' existed between Rob Kelley and the rookie for the starting job. That would appear to still be the case, but Perine is a powerful runner who will continue to get opportunities in what should be a pretty good offense. He's well worth a late-round pick as a high-upside RB5.
Posted: 8/10/2017 11:34pm ET
Huddle Up: Washington's offense was abysmal so don't read too much into his yardage, but putting the ball on the ground is unacceptable, and his struggles in blitz pick up could make it hard for him to get meaningful snaps. Monitor Perine to see if he cleans things up in pass pro. For now he's a late-round RB5 or Rob Kelley handcuff.
Posted: 7/5/2017 12:38pm ET
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.
Posted: 6/26/2017 12:22pm ET
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.
Posted: 5/13/2017 8:13pm ET
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.
Posted: 4/29/2017 9:37am ET
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.
