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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
