Samaje Perine Overshadowed By Undrafted Rookie

Sunday, October 1, 10:45 PM

Denver Broncos running back Samaje Perine didn't take advantage of an opportunity for a bigger role in the 31-28 comeback win over the Chicago Bears in Week 4 on Sunday when Javonte Williams (hip) left the game for good in the first half. Perine handled six carries, one less than undrafted rookie Jaleel McLaughlin, and picked up only 12 yards (2.0 yards per tote) on the ground. He added 23 receiving yards while hauling in both of his targets through the air. The 28-year-old could have a bigger role moving forward if Williams is forced to miss any time with his injury, but Perine has so far been a disappointment through his first four weeks with the Broncos and could be behind McLaughlin in the pecking order. Even if Williams is unavailable for a tough Week 5 matchup against the New York Jets, Perine will be hard to recommend as an RB3/flex.

Gus Edwards News

Gus Edwards Removed From The Injury Report

Friday, September 29, 5:38 PM

Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards (head) was removed from the injury report, suggesting he'll suit up for the AFC North battle with the Browns. The 28-year-old cleared concussion protocol and practiced fully during the week, so it didn't seem as if he was in any real danger of missing this one. Edwards has been Baltimore's most productive running back this season, totaling 145 yards and a touchdown off 29 carries. While Justice Hill (foot), who is questionable, or Melvin Gordon III should see some action versus Cleveland, Edwards is expected to remain the primary ball carrier. However, he's still a risky option for any fantasy setup in Week 4.
