One reception to close out season

Perriman brought in one of two targets for nine yards in the Buccaneers' 30-17 loss to the Falcons on Sunday.

Analysis: Perriman made his first appearance on the stat sheet since Week 9 while seeing highest allotment of playing time from scrimmage since Week 3, 31 snaps. The veteran wideout may not even garner active status in next Monday night's wild-card matchup against the Cowboys if recent history is any indication, however, as he was left off the gameday roster in four of the last six regular-season contests.

Remains healthy scratch Sunday

Perriman (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 17 clash against the Panthers, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: The veteran wideout continues to be left off the active roster in favor of fellow speedster Scotty Miller, who'll once again serve as the No. 5 wideout Sunday versus Carolina. Perriman's final chance to garner active status during the regular season comes in next Sunday's Week 18 road matchup versus the Falcons.

Won't suit up Sunday

Perriman (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Cardinals, Brianna Dix of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Analysis: Perriman won't suit up for a third straight game despite being healthy. It appears Deven Thompkins, who's mostly operated as a return man, has surpassed Perriman on the depth chart, though Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Julio Jones, Russell Gage and Scotty Miller figure to continue dominating the wideout snaps.

Healthy scratch again Week 14

Perriman (coach's decision) has been ruled inactive for Sunday's game versus the 49ers.

Analysis: Perriman has totaled two receptions (on five targets) for 12 yards since Week 6, and he will now be ruled a healthy scratch for the second game in a row. With the Buccaneers' receiving corps back at full health, it's possible that Deven Thompkins could see an increased role after being elevated from the practice squad Saturday.

Healthy scratch for MNF

Perriman (coach's decision) has been ruled inactive for Monday's game against the Saints.

Analysis: Perriman caught just two of four targets while playing 51 offensive snaps with Russell Gage (hamstring) sidelined for the last four games. With Gage back in action Week 13, it appears Perriman has found himself as the odd man out in Tampa Bay's wide receiver depth chart. His next chance to play will come against the 49ers on Sunday, though, barring injuries to Tampa Bay's other wideouts, he's unlikely to see much usage moving forward.

Targeted once in OT loss

Perriman failed to haul in his lone target while playing eight of the Buccaneers' 66 snaps on offense in Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss to the Browns.

Analysis: Even with Russell Gage (hamstring) missing his fourth game in a row, both Perriman and Scotty Miller (two snaps) were afterthoughts on offense while Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Julio Jones formed Tampa Bay's regular receiver trio. If Gage makes it back for the Buccaneers' Week 13 game against the Saints, one or both of Perriman and Miller could find himself on the inactive list.

No targets over 18 snaps

Perriman logged 18 snaps on offense but did not draw a target during the Buccaneers' 21-16 win over the Seahawks in Week 10.

Analysis: Perriman was once again outpaced by fellow reserve wideout Scotty Miller despite the latter playing on four fewer snaps. With just two receptions for 12 yards on four targets across a modest 55 snaps in his last five games, Perriman heads into the Week 11 bye with negligible fantasy value.

Nov 16, 2022 4:23 PM EST


One grab in Week 9 win

Perriman secured one of two targets for one yard in the Buccaneers' 16-13 win over the Rams on Sunday.

Analysis: Perriman once again played a bit part in the air attack despite the absence of Russell Gage (hamstring), although he did log his most extensive snap count (22) since Week 3 during the contest. Scotty Miller notably logged eight targets and parlayed them into a 7-53 line over 33 snaps, so he seems to clearly be the preferred complementary option in the air attack.

Nov 7, 2022 4:42 PM EST


One catch in loss

Perriman secured his only target for 11 yards in the Buccaneers' 27-22 loss to the Ravens on Thursday night.

Analysis: The veteran wideout logged only four snaps overall despite the absence of Russell Gage (hamstring), but he at least made his first appearance on the stat sheet since Week 3. Perriman is likely to continue to be a fantasy afterthought as long as Mike Evans and Chris Godwin are healthy, as even the absence of complementary wideouts such as Gage or Julio Jones sees to have a negligible effect on Perriman's opportunity/production.

Gets back to full participation

Perriman (knee/hamstring) practiced fully Wednesday.

Analysis: Prior to logging back-to-back absences, Perriman first didn't practice at all Week 4 before being listed as limited all of Week 5 prep. Now that he's handling every practice rep, he's a step ahead of fellow injured wide receivers Chris Godwin (hip/knee, limited), Julio Jones (knee, DNP), Russell Gage (ankle, DNP) and Jaelon Darden (tooth, DNP). In three appearances this season, Perriman has averaged 14.8 yards on his six catches while scoring one TD on 12 targets.

Another DNP in Week 5

Perriman (knee/hamstring) is listed as inactive Sunday versus the Falcons, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Analysis: Despite practicing in a limited capacity during Week 5 prep, Perriman will miss a second straight game due to knee and hamstring injuries. He'll be sitting along with Julio Jones (knee) and Deven Thompkins (coach's decision) on Sunday, meaning Tampa Bay will be down to Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Russell Gage (back), Scotty Miller, Jaelon Darden and Kaylon Geiger at wide receiver. Perriman's next opportunity to suit up is Sunday, Oct. 16 in Pittsburgh.

Gets limited work again Thursday

Perriman (knee/hamstring) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday.

Analysis: Perriman appears to be in a better spot than he was last week, when he didn't practice at all before he was deemed inactive this past Sunday versus the Chiefs. He'll have one more chance to log all activity at Friday's session, after which he may receive a designation for Week 5 action against the Falcons. If he's available, his potential workload will be contingent on the statuses of Chris Godwin (knee), Julio Jones (knee) and Russell Gage (hamstring), all of whom have had a cap on their reps this week like Perriman.

Oct 6, 2022 2:19 PM EST


Limited in return to practice

Perriman (knee/hamstring) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: Perriman didn't practice all last week while dealing with knee and hamstring injuries, before the Bucs made him inactive this past Sunday against the Chiefs. He's thus logging his first on-field work since suiting up Week 3, while all of Chris Godwin (knee), Julio Jones (knee) and Russell Gage (hamstring) also had caps on their reps. As a result, the status of the Tampa Bay's receiving corps again is in flux as the team prepares for a Week 5 matchup with the Falcons.

Oct 5, 2022 2:14 PM EST


Unavailable Sunday

Perriman (knee/hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Analysis: Unable to practice during Week 4 prep due to knee and hamstring injuries, Perriman carried a doubtful designation into the weekend, which forecast his lack of availability. Scotty Miller will join Perriman in street cloths Sunday, while all of Mike Evans, Chris Godwin (hamstring), Julio Jones (knee) and Russell Gage (hamstring) are available to Tampa Bay's offense. Perriman's next chance to play is next Sunday against the Falcons.

Oct 2, 2022 4:07 PM EST


Unlikely to play in Week 4

Perriman (knee/hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's contest versus the Chiefs, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: While Mike Evans will be back from a one-game suspension and all of Chris Godwin (hamstring/rest), Julio Jones (knee/rest) and Russell Gage (hamstring/rest) are questionable this weekend, Perriman appears unlikely to play due to knee and hamstring issues. If any of Godwin, Jones or Gage also are sidelined Sunday, Scotty Miller and Jaelon Darden are the other candidates to mix into the Bucs' receiving corps.

Sep 30, 2022 1:56 PM EST


No practice Thursday

Perriman (knee/hamstring) didn't practice Thursday.

Analysis: Perriman was able to play through a knee injury Weeks 2 and 3 en route to a cumulative 6-89-1 line on nine targets. Even if he's able to make himself available Sunday against the Chiefs, he has yet to practice this week, while all of Chris Godwin (hamstring), Julio Jones (knee) and Russell Gage (hamstring) have managed at least one capped session. As a result, Perriman seems like the least likely of the aforementioned wide receivers to be available this weekend, which could be confirmed as of the release of Friday's injury report.

Sep 29, 2022 2:29 PM EST


Has pair of injuries

Perriman (knee/hamstring) was a non-participant at practice Wednesday.

Analysis: Perriman was listed with a knee injury on Week 2 and 3 practice reports, but now his hamstring has made an appearance. With Mike Evans back from his one-game suspension and Chris Godwin (hamstring), Julio Jones (knee) and Russell Gage (hamstring) all practicing in a limited capacity Wednesday, Perriman soon may be returning to a tertiary role in Tampa Bay's passing game, assuming he's active at all Sunday versus the Chiefs.

Sep 28, 2022 3:04 PM EST


Fumbles in loss

Perriman caught three of four targets for 44 yards in Sunday's 14-12 loss to the Packers.

Analysis: Perriman failed to really take advantage of Tampa Bay being without its top three wide receivers, as a fumble halted his team's momentum prior to halftime. Although he's topped 40 yards in consecutive weeks, Perriman could see his involvement decrease with Mike Evans set to return from suspension in Week 4, and Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee) working back to availability as well.

Sep 25, 2022 5:31 PM EST


Active as expected Sunday

Perriman (knee) is active for Sunday's Week 3 clash against the Packers, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: As expected, the veteran speedster will be available on a day when the Buccaneers' receiving corps will be down Mike Evans (suspension), Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee). Perriman played a key role in the Week 2 win over the Saints after Evans was ejected in the fourth quarter, catching what was essentially a game-sealing 28-yard touchdown pass from Tom Brady. Given the volume of absences in the receiver corps Sunday, Perriman should be in line for an elevated role as a starter alongside Russell Gage.

Sep 25, 2022 12:17 PM EST


Expected to go vs. Packers

Perriman (knee) is expected to suit up for Sunday's game against Green Bay, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Perriman and Russell Gage (hamstring) are expected to play Sunday, while Julio Jones (knee) is a true game-time decision. Meanwhile, Mike Evans (suspension) and Chris Godwin (hamstring) are both out versus Green Bay. Final clarification will come leading up to Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, but if Perriman is able to suit up he could be asked to handle a key role in Tampa Bay's passing game.
