Breshad Perriman: Joins Jets

The Jets and Perriman agreed to a one-year contract Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: After Robby Anderson chose the Panthers earlier Tuesday, the Jets were in the market for a wide receiver. Despite being a first-round pick in 2015, Perriman made a negligible impact on the field until last season, which he capped with three consecutive 100-yard performances. He projects to be Sam Darnold's top outside threat, with Jamison Crowder operating out of the slot.

Breshad Perriman: Spectacular finish to season

Perriman secured five of eight targets 134 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 28-22 overtime loss to the Falcons on Sunday.

Analysis: Perriman once again paced the team in receptions, receiving yards and targets, putting together his third consecutive 100-yard effort to close out the campaign. The previously underwhelming wideout earned high praise from coach Bruce Arians in his postgame press conference, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports, with the Buccaneers' head man stating that Perriman played like a No. 1 receiver down the stretch. The 26-year-old now heads into unrestricted free agency in March unless the Buccaneers are impressed enough by his strong finish to bring him back in the fold.

Breshad Perriman: Tops 100 yards as top dog

Perriman caught seven of 12 targets for 102 yards in Saturday's 23-20 loss to the Texans.

Analysis: Perriman served as Tampa Bay's No. 1 wide receiver with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin sidelined by hamstring injuries. He led the team in targets, catches and yards, with no other Buccaneer even reaching 50 receiving yards. Perriman came close to having an even bigger day, but he just missed getting his feet in bounds on what would have been a 32-yard catch and had a ball in the end zone bounce off his outstretched hand. With the team's top two receivers unlikely to return for the finale against Atlanta, Perriman's primed to finish on a high note.

Breshad Perriman: Headlines Week 16 wideout corps

Perriman is expected to operate as the Buccaneers' No. 1 receiver Saturday against the Texans after Chris Godwin (hamstring) was ruled out for the contest and Mike Evans (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve earlier in the week, Jenna Laine of reports.

Analysis: Godwin failed to practice this week and isn't a lock to make it back for the Dec. 29 season finale versus Atlanta either, so Perriman looks like he could have a significant opportunity ahead of him while serving as the top receiver in what's been one of the NFL's more pass-happy attacks. Perriman took full advantage of Evans' absence and Godwin's early exit in the Week 15 win over the Lions, delivering the best performance of his five-year career with five receptions for 113 yards and three touchdowns on six targets. While no wideout can be asked to replicate that sort of efficiency, Perriman should at least benefit from an uptick in volume with Evans' and Godwin's combined 17.7 targets per game missing from the lineup. Depth wideout Justin Watson and tight ends O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate are also expected to take on pronounced roles in the passing game.

Breshad Perriman: Career day in win

Perriman secured five of six targets for 113 yards and three touchdowns in the Buccaneers' 38-17 win over the Lions on Sunday. He also rushed once for three yards.

Analysis: Perriman's numbers are impressive under any circumstances, but given the Buccaneers lost both Chris Godwin and Scott Miller due to hamstring injuries Sunday and are already likely without Mike Evans the rest of the way for the same reason, they're particularly encouraging as well. The fifth-year speedster brought in scoring tosses of 34, 25 and 25 yards from Jameis Winston (thumb), giving him four of his five touchdowns on the season over his last two games. Perriman should be primed for every-snap volume in a Week 16 Saturday matchup versus the Texans, as Evans and Godwin are highly likely to miss that contest.

Breshad Perriman: Boost in role on tap

Perriman is slated to slot in as the Buccaneers' No. 2 receiver if Mike Evans (hamstring) misses the rest of the season, as reported by Jeremy Fowler of ESPN on Tuesday.

Analysis: The fourth-year speedster had already been enjoying a slightly increasing role in the offense prior to Evans' Week 14 late first-quarter injury, following a dismal start to the season that saw him bring in just three of his first 16 targets as a member of the Buccaneers. Perriman finished Sunday's win over the Colts with a 3-70-1 line that included what turned out to be the game-winning touchdown. He now appears in line to serve as the clear No. 2 option alongside top wideout Chris Godwin for the final three games, which notably consists of matchups against the vulnerable secondaries of the Lions, Texans and Falcons.

Breshad Perriman: Game-winning touchdown in victory

Perriman secured three of five targets for 70 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 38-35 win over the Colts on Sunday.

Analysis: Perriman saw extra targets with Mike Evans (hamstring) out of action from the late first quarter on, and he was able to deliver a 12-yard touchdown reception with 3:51 remaining to seal the victory. Perriman now has eight receptions (11 targets) for 157 yards and Sunday's score over the last two weeks, and he could be set to serve as the No. 2 wideout the rest of the campaign if the hamstring injury Mike Evans suffered Sunday turns out to be as serious as feared.

Breshad Perriman: Surprise leader of receiving corps

Perriman brought in five of six targets for 87 yards in the Buccaneers' 28-11 win over the Jaguars on Sunday.

Analysis: In a game that unfolded quite a bit differently than had been envisioned, Perriman fittingly led a pass-catching corps normally spearheaded by either Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. The receptions, receiving yardage and targets were all season highs for Perriman who now has recorded at least one reception in five straight games. That's actually a significant improvement over Perriman's first five contests, during which he posted just three receptions (on 16 targets) for 16 yards. Perriman will look to build on Sunday's unexpected numbers versus the Colts in Week 14.

Breshad Perriman: Big catch in Week 12 win

Perriman secured his only target for 44 yards in the Buccaneers' 35-22 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Analysis: Perriman's one touch made an impact, as he had the second-longest catch of the day for the Buccaneers. Perriman is one of the lower-volume No. 3 receivers in the league, having notched more than two receptions in only one game this season and already having been blanked altogether on three occasions. Therefore, even though the young veteran boasts plenty of speed, he remains a speculative play each week.

Breshad Perriman: One catch in Week 11 loss

Perriman brought in one of three targets for 20 yards in the Buccaneers' 34-17 loss to the Saints on Sunday.

Analysis: Perriman was able to make an appearance on the stat sheet for the third straight week, a relatively common occurrence for the majority of No. 3 receivers, but not one that was a lock for the young veteran earlier in the season. Perriman had gone catchless in non-injury-shortened contests during Weeks 2 and 8, and he'd also managed just one reception over 52 snaps in a high-scoring loss to the Giants back in Week 3. Perriman now has seven catches over the last three games, but rookie Scotty Miller appears to be gaining some momentum directly behind him on the depth chart.

Breshad Perriman: Could be cut

Perriman (hamstring) could be cut to help the Buccaneers with the formula for compensatory draft picks, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Signed to a one-year, $4 million deal this past offseason, Perriman already is shaping up as a disappointment, catching just three of 12 targets for 16 yards before he missed the past two weeks with a hamstring injury. His contract is large enough to factor into the formula for compensatory draft picks, but only if he's still on the Buccaneers' roster in Week 9. The Bucs used Scott Miller as their No. 3 receiver the past two games, with the rookie sixth-round pick catching three of nine targets for 39 yards and a touchdown. A Week 7 bye could inspire some changes for the 2-4 Bucs.

Breshad Perriman: Not travelling with team

Perriman (hamstring) is not travelling with the Buccaneers to London on Thursday, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Analysis: Perriman won't play Sunday against the Panthers, which doesn't come as much of a surprise considering that he hasn't practiced since picking up a hamstring injury Week 4. In Perriman's absence, look for Scott Miller and Bobo Wilson to see increased opportunities behind Chris Godwin (hip) and Mike Evans.

October 10, 2019 11:53 AM EST

Breshad Perriman: Still not practicing

Perriman (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Analysis: Perriman hasn't practiced since suffering a hamstring injury Week 4 versus the Rams. The fifth-year wideout would likely need to participate in some capacity Thursday or Friday in order to possess any chance of suiting up Sunday against the Panthers. If Perriman is forced to miss any more time, expect Scott Miller and Bobo Wilson to once again split snaps in the Buccaneers' No. 3 receiver role.

October 9, 2019 12:54 PM EST

Breshad Perriman: Ruled out for Week 5

Perriman (hamstring) won't play in Sunday's game against the Saints, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Perriman has struggled in the No. 3 receiver role, catching just three of 12 passes for 16 yards. Coach Bruce Arians said Bobo Wilson and Scott Miller will share the snaps that normally go to Perriman, per Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site.

October 4, 2019 9:22 AM EST

Breshad Perriman: Doesn't practice after all

Updating a previous report, Perriman (hamstring) was classified as a non-participant in Thursday's practice, Jenna Laine of reports.

Analysis: The Buccaneers' official site listed Perriman as a limited participant in their second session of the week, but the wideout apparently wasn't able to put in any work with his healthy teammates in the end. More clarity on Perriman's situation will come following Friday's practice, when the Buccaneers will reveal his level of participation in addition to making a call on whether or not he'll carry a designation into Sunday's game against the Saints. Through four games, Perriman has corraled only three of his 12 targets for 16 yards and no touchdowns.

October 3, 2019 4:03 PM EST

Breshad Perriman: Limited in practice Thursday

Perriman (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Thursday.

Analysis: According to Greg Auman of The Athletic, Perriman wasn't present during the portion of the session open to the media, but the fifth-year wide receiver eventually made it to the field and fit in enough reps to put Wednesday's absence in the rearview mirror. Perriman will look to get rid of his designation entirely at Friday's practice and on the ensuing injury report.

October 3, 2019 2:24 PM EST

Breshad Perriman: Still not practicing

Perriman (hamstring) will be a non-participant in Thursday's practice, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Perriman was forced out of Week 4's win over the Rams early in the first quarter due to a hamstring injury, and he hasn't resumed practicing since. Unless the 2015 first-round pick is able to rebound in Friday's practice, he's trending towards sitting out Sunday's tilt against the Saints. Perriman has only three catches for 16 yards across four games, so an absence on his part wouldn't carry much fantasy impact.

October 3, 2019 9:24 AM EST

Breshad Perriman: Sits out practice Wednesday

Perriman (hamstring) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Perriman was forced out of this past Sunday's win over the Rams with a hamstring injury and didn't return. Being sidelined for the first injury report of the week isn't a favorable sign for his chances of playing Sunday versus the Saints. The Buccaneers could thin at receiver if Perriman can't go since Chris Godwin (hip) also missed Wednesday's practice, but both will have two more days to get back onto the field.

October 2, 2019 3:04 PM EST

Breshad Perriman: Done for the day

Perriman is ruled out to return to Sunday's game against the Rams due to a hamstring injury, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Perriman left Sunday's contest versus Los Angeles early in the first quarter. He fought through a quadriceps injury in practice earlier this week. Justin Watson, Bobo Wilson and Scott Miller could see increased snaps with Perriman ruled out.

September 29, 2019 1:36 PM EST

Breshad Perriman: Cleared to face Rams

Perriman (quadriceps) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Analysis: Perriman will be tasked with a larger-than-usual role if Chris Godwin (hip) is ruled out or has any limitations. Coach Bruce Arians said he views Godwin as a game-time decision ahead of Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff.
