Breshad Perriman: Links up with Lions

The Lions and Perriman agreed to a one-year, $3 million contract Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Like father, like son. Upon joining the fifth team of his career, Perriman will move on to Detroit, where his father Brett spent most of his 10-year career. The younger Perriman has found life as a deep threat that past three seasons, ripping off 18.2 YPC and 11 touchdowns on his 82 receptions. There's a clear opening in the Lions' passing attack with all of Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola moving on, so Perriman should be a regular target of Jared Goff in 2021.

Breshad Perriman: Totals 505 receiving yards in 2020

Perriman caught three of six targets for 84 yards in Sunday's season-ending 28-14 loss to New England.

Analysis: Perriman suited up in 12 games after signing a one-year deal with New York, catching 30 balls for 505 yards and three touchdowns. His best stretch came when gun-slinging backup Joe Flacco took over under center, as starter Sam Darnold failed to push the ball downfield to the speedster with any consistency. Perriman's fantasy outlook next season will be determined by where he ends up in free agency, as he needs a strong-armed quarterback to maximize his skill set, which consists primarily of catching deep balls.

Breshad Perriman: Late-season slump continues

Perriman caught none of his six targets and rushed once for six yards in Sunday's 23-16 win over Cleveland.

Analysis: Perriman dropped what would have been a chunk gain down the sideline on the opening drive and failed to come down with either of his other two first-half targets. He finally got the ball in his hands on an end-around early in the third quarter but had a would-be long touchdown go through his hands later in the quarter and ended up without a reception all afternoon. With just one catch over his last two games and five catches in the past four contests, Perriman's trending in the wrong direction ahead of next week's season finale against the stingy New England secondary.

Breshad Perriman: Just one target in team's first win

Perriman caught his lone target for 21 yards in Sunday's 23-20 win over the Rams.

Analysis: New York shockingly played from ahead throughout the game, so the offense was able to settle into a rhythm consisting of runs and safe, short throws rather than downfield shots to Perriman. Assuming the Jets are unable to carry over the momentum from their first win of the season into a Week 16 matchup with the likely playoff-bound Browns, Perriman should get more opportunities to stretch the field against the mistake-prone Cleveland secondary.

Breshad Perriman: Turns in full practice

Perriman (shoulder) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: After being limited in the Jets' first Week 15 practice Wednesday, Perriman's upgrade to full activity clears the way for him to play Sunday against the Rams. Meanwhile, Jamison Crowder (calves) returned to practice as a limited participant Thursday, and Denzel Mims (personal) rejoined the team Wednesday, leaving the Jets poised to have their top three receivers all available in the same game for one of the few times this season.

Breshad Perriman: Limited practice on tap

Perriman (shoulder) will be limited at practice Wednesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Analysis: Limited practices on Wednesday have been the norm for Perriman, who's been managing a shoulder issue, but we'd expect him to be cleared to play in advance of Sunday's game against the Rams. With Denzel Mims (personal) slated to practice Wednesday and Jamison Crowder (calf) expected back on the field Thursday, the Jets could have all three of their top wide receivers available for Week 15 action.

Breshad Perriman: Does little with six targets

Perriman caught three of six targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 40-3 loss to the Seahawks.

Analysis: He led the Jets in targets and tied Braxton Berrios for the team lead in receptions, but Perriman failed to do much with his opportunities. The 27-year-old wideout has managed only an 8-127-0 line on 18 targets over the last three games, giving him little momentum heading into Week 15's road matchup with the Rams.

Breshad Perriman: Ramps up to full practice

Perriman (shoulder) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Seahawks after practicing fully Friday, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Perriman continued his pattern from recent weeks, starting the week in limited fashion before ramping up to full activity Friday. He caught just one pass for 22 yards last week after totaling 11 catches for 234 yards and three touchdowns over the previous three games, but Perriman's in prime position to bounce back against the league-worst Seattle pass defense. With Denzel Mims (personal) out and Jamison Crowder (calf) questionable, Perriman will likely be the top option in the Jets' passing game.

December 11, 2020 1:47 PM EST

Breshad Perriman: Another limited session

Perriman (shoulder) will remain limited at practice Thursday, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Over the last few weeks, Perriman has been limited both Wednesday and Thursday, before practicing fully Friday. Look for that pattern to occur once again in Week 14. If it it does, Perriman should approach Sunday's game against the Seahawks minus an injury designation and would be set to head the team's wideout corps this weekend along with Jamison Crowder, with Denzel Mims (personal) unavailable for the contest.

Breshad Perriman: Logs limited practice

Perriman (shoulder) will be limited at practice Wednesday, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Analysis: Though Perriman was on the field for 59 of the Jets' 62 snaps on offense in this past Sunday's loss to the Raiders, he caught just one of his four targets for 22 yards. We'll operate under the assumption that the wideout's Wednesday limitations are maintenance-related and that he'll be available to play this weekend against the Seahawks, who've given up a league-high average of 309.8 passing yards per game to date.

Breshad Perriman: One catch in Week 13 loss

Perriman caught one of four targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 31-28 loss to the Raiders.

Analysis: Sam Darnold posted his first multi-score performance of the season through the air but primarily worked underneath rather than searching out Perriman downfield. New York's struggles under center give Perriman a low floor -- which he showcased in this one -- but the speedster's ceiling will be high in Week 14 against the beatable Seattle secondary.

December 6, 2020 4:32 PM EST

Breshad Perriman: Taken off injury report

Perriman (shoulder) practiced fully Friday and doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Analysis: Perriman has battled this shoulder injury for most of the season, but it hasn't stopped him from playing his best football of late. The speedster should be out there without any limitations Sunday and will hope to help New York pick up its first win of the season with his big-play ability.

Breshad Perriman: Limited again Thursday

Perriman (shoulder) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Paul Gutierrez of reports.

Analysis: Having begun the week with back-to-back limited practices is at least an indication that Perriman should be available against the Raiders on Sunday, considering that he's regularly had a cap on his reps since injuring his shoulder mid-November. Perriman has excelled as a deep threat in recent weeks, with 234 yards and three touchdowns over his last three games. He's averaging 21.3 yards per catch over that span.

December 3, 2020 2:33 PM EST

Breshad Perriman: Starts week with limited practice

Perriman (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Analysis: Perriman has had his practice reps capped by this shoulder injury in recent weeks, but it hasn't cut into his production. The speedy wideout is in the midst of his best stretch of the season, with 234 yards and three touchdowns in his last three games heading into Sunday's matchup with a Raiders team that has been outscored 78-37 over a Jets-like two-week stretch.

Breshad Perriman: Leading receiver as Darnold returns

Perriman caught four of eight targets for 79 yards in Sunday's 20-3 loss to Miami.

Analysis: Perriman set up an opening-drive field goal with a 37-yard catch from returning starting quarterback Sam Darnold (shoulder), but that play represented the highlight of the afternoon for New York's league-worst offense. Still, Perriman led the team in receiving yards and tied Denzel Mims for the team lead in catches and targets. After battling some early-season injuries, Perriman has established himself as New York's top receiving option with 234 yards and three touchdowns over the past three games. He'll look to stay hot in Week 13 against a Raiders team that just got embarrassed 43-6 in Atlanta.

Breshad Perriman: Set to play Sunday

Perriman (shoulder) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Dolphins after practicing fully Friday, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Over his last two games, with Joe Flacco at QB, Perriman has combined for seven catches on 11 targets for 155 yards and three TDs. This week, signal-caller Sam Darnold has been cleared to start, and while that switch isn't a bad thing for Perriman, his continued fantasy relevance hinges largely on his ability to find the end zone, something he didn't do in the four games prior to his recent run.

November 27, 2020 2:38 PM EST

Breshad Perriman: Starts week with limited practice

Perriman (shoulder) will be limited at Wednesday's practice, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Analysis: Perriman was on the field for all but one of the Jets' 60 snaps on offense in this past Sunday's loss to the Chargers, en route to catching two of his four targets for 54 yards and a TD. With no reported setbacks in that contest, it's likely that his practice limitations are maintenance-related. Perriman was also limited at practice both Wednesday and Thursday last week before returning to a full session Friday.

November 25, 2020 8:31 AM EST

Breshad Perriman: Scores long touchdown

Perriman caught two of four targets for 54 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 34-28 loss to the Chargers.

Analysis: Nearly all of Perriman's production came on a 49-yard touchdown catch and run in the third quarter. The score gives him three in his last two games and he has surpassed 50 receiving yards in three of his last four. Perriman has connected well with Joe Flacco in the absence of Sam Darnold (shoulder), but the latter could return next Sunday against the Dolphins, which could dampen his fantasy outlook. Considering Miam boasts a surprisingly effective defensive unit, Perriman could struggle to continue his recent success regardless of who is under center.

November 22, 2020 6:22 PM EST

Breshad Perriman: Good to go for Week 11

Perriman (shoulder) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Analysis: Perriman shed his injury designation with a full practice Friday after a pair of limited sessions. The offseason acquisition has battled a few different injuries this season but had his best game of the season last time out, burning New England for 101 yards and two touchdowns. Both of those touchdowns were thrown by backup Joe Flacco, who will likely be under center again with Sam Darnold (shoulder) doubtful.

November 20, 2020 1:03 PM EST

Breshad Perriman: Maintains limited practice activity

Perriman (shoulder) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Despite the benefit of a Week 10 bye, Perriman's reps have been capped in both of the Jets' first two Week 11 practices while he manages a shoulder injury. Fortunately, the issue doesn't look to be anything that should trouble the wideout too much in Sunday's game against the Chargers, as head coach Adam Gase said Thursday that he expects Perriman will be ready to play this weekend, according to Connor Hughes of The Athletic. Perriman turned in his best outing of the season in the Jets' last game Nov. 9, reeling in five of seven targets for 101 yards and two scores in a 30-27 loss to New England.
