Malcolm Perry: Scores first TD in finale

Perry turned his only target into a 25-yard touchdown during Week 17's 56-26 loss to the Bills.

Analysis: Perry only played two offensive snaps during the Dolphins' season finale, but he made the most of his opportunities by connecting with Tua Tagovailoa for a TD pass with 2:47 remaining in the fourth quarter. Of course, by that point the divisional tilt was well out of hand. The seventh-round selection appeared in nine contests as a rookie, during which span he secured nine of 13 targets for 92 yards and a score, primarily operating out of the slot when he did see the field. Perry also had three carries for five yards.

Malcolm Perry: Gains four yards in win

Perry rushed once for four yards in Sunday's 22-12 win over the Patriots.

Analysis: With DeVante Parker (hamstring) and Jakeem Grant (hamstring) out of the lineup, Perry played 10 snaps on offense, working behind Lynn Bowden, Mack Hollins and Isaiah Ford. The Dolphins could roll with a similar setup in Week 16 against the Raiders, but the return of Parker or Grant could push Perry further out of the rotation.

Malcolm Perry: One catch versus Chiefs

Perry caught one of two targets for five yards during Sunday's 33-27 loss to the Chiefs.

Analysis: Perry saw expanded opportunities versus the Chiefs, as both DeVante Parker (leg) and Mike Gesicki (shoulder) were forced off the field, but he still didn't contribute much on offense. Instead, Lynn Bowden and Mack Hollins both stepped up to lead Miami's passing attack.

Malcolm Perry: Sheds injury tag

Perry (chest) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Analysis: Perry missed last weekend's win over the Bengals and was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday, but he handled unrestricted reps during Friday's session. The rookie seventh-round pick handled a season-high 78 percent of offensive snaps back in Week 11, so he could play a large role against the Chiefs. Of course, Perry only has seven catches for 62 yards on the season, so he's only on the fantasy radar as a fringe candidate in deep formats.

Malcolm Perry: Absent from practice

Perry (chest) is not practicing Wednesday, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Perry sat out last weekend's win over the Bengals due to a chest injury sustained the game prior, and beginning the week with a missed practice doesn't bode particularly well for his chances of returning. Another absence on Perry's part could provide Antonio Callaway and Mack Hollins with increased opportunities on offense.

Malcolm Perry: Won't play Sunday

Perry (chest) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Analysis: After exiting early in last week's win over the Jets with the chest injury, Perry failed to practice Wednesday before returning to work in a limited capacity Thursday and Friday. Ultimately, he didn't make enough progress for the Dolphins to sign off on him playing Week 13. With Perry out of the mix, Antonio Callaway and Mack Hollins could see more work alongside DeVante Parker and Jakeem Grant in three-wide sets. Rookie Lynn Bowden is the team's other active receiver, and he could also be an option to help replace Perry while also seeing a couple snaps as a wildcat quarterback.

Malcolm Perry: Draws questionable tag

Perry (chest) is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Analysis: Perry finished the week with back-to-back limited practices, a hint that he has a fair shot at suiting up versus Cincinnati. With Matt Breida (illness) on the COVID-19 list, and both Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) and DeAndre Washington (hamstring) doubtful to play, it's conceivable that Perry could get a handful of backfield opportunities Week 13. It seems more likely, though, that the Dolphins bring Myles Gaskin (knee) off IR on Saturday.

Malcolm Perry: Upgrades to limited practice

Perry (chest) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Analysis: Perry couldn't practice in any capacity Wednesday, so his ability to get back on the field in at least a limited capacity represents tangible progress. If the rookie seventh-round pick can attain full clearance in time for Sunday's game against the Bengals, he'll likely handle Miami's No. 3 receiver role.

December 3, 2020 3:38 PM EST

Malcolm Perry: Can't practice Wednesday

Perry (chest) did not practice Wednesday, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Perry was forced out of last Sunday's win over the Jets due to a chest injury, and his status for Week 13 is now also looking murky. If Perry can't go against the Bengals, Mack Hollins, Antonio Callaway and Lynn Bowden could all handle slightly increased roles.

Malcolm Perry: Suffers chest injury

Perry exited Sunday's game against the Jets with a chest injury.

Analysis: The 23-year-old caught his lone target for eight yards during the first quarter before sustaining the injury. Mack Hollins could have an increased offensive role if Perry can't retake the field Sunday.

Malcolm Perry: Targeted five times in loss

Perry caught three of five targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Broncos.

Analysis: Rookie Tua Tagovailoa struggled in his fourth career start and was eventually benched in the fourth quarter. Before his departure, Perry was targeted just once, catching the pass for a three-yard gain. Ryan Fitzpatrick entered in Tagovailoa's place and targeted Perry on 22.2 percent of his throws, leading to a career high in receiving yards for the rookie. Perry finished the game with a season-high 78 percent snap share, too, so his opportunities could rise in the near future.

Malcolm Perry: Minor involvement again

Perry had one carry for six yards during Sunday's 29-21 win over the Chargers. He also caught both of his targets for 21 yards.

Analysis: Perry has now had two straight games where he handled around 40 percent of offensive snaps, both of which came with Preston Williams (knee) out of the lineup. The rookie seventh-round pick will look to continue making the most out of his few opportunities.

November 16, 2020 5:42 PM EST

Malcolm Perry: Targeted once in win

Perry didn't catch his only target in Sunday's 34-31 win over the Cardinals.

Analysis: In his second NFL game, Perry saw some extra reps because Preston Williams exited early with a foot injury. The rookie out of Navy didn't do much with his 23 snaps, though, and he'll likely revert to a depth role if Williams can play this week against the Chargers.

Malcolm Perry: Inactive again Week 5

Perry (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Analysis: Perry avoided an injury designation for Week 5 after sitting out Thursday's practice with an illness, but he'll end up being a healthy scratch anyway. The 23-year-old has yet to suit up through five games this season.

October 11, 2020 12:03 PM EST

Malcolm Perry: Clear of illness

Perry (illness) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The 23-year-old was held out of Thursday's practice due to the illness, but he returned as a full participant at Friday's session. Perry has been a healthy scratch for the first four games of the season, so he's unlikely to contribute Week 5 even though he's fully healthy.

October 9, 2020 11:55 AM EST

Malcolm Perry: Dealing with illness

Perry did not practice Thursday due to an illness, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Perry has been a healthy scratch for Miami through the first four games of the season, so he wouldn't be a likely candidate to contribute in San Francisco on Sunday even if he manages to shake his ailment. The rookie seventh-round pick could eventually contribute on special teams and as an option in the return game.

October 8, 2020 2:43 PM EST

Malcolm Perry: Healthy scratch Thursday

Perry (coach's decision) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Jaguars.

Analysis: Perry hasn't yet been active for a game this season. The rookie seventh-round pick may not be handed a path to make his NFL debut unless the Dolphins suffer injuries to the running back or wide receiver positions.

September 24, 2020 4:07 PM EST

Malcolm Perry: Won't play Sunday

Perry will be a healthy scratch for Sunday's game against Buffalo, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Perry didn't suit up in last week's loss to New England, and he will scratched in Week 2 in favor of rookie Lynn Bowden. Perry likely won't affect much from a fantasy perspective this season should he eventually make his NFL debut.
