Samaje Perine Quickly Becoming A Fantasy Afterthought

Friday, September 29, 12:11 AM

Denver Broncos running back Samaje Perine was expected to have a significant role in the backfield early on in his first year in Denver with Javonte Williams being eased in following a major knee injury in 2022. Perine looked pretty explosive on 12 touches in the season opener and played the same number of offensive snaps as Williams. But in the last two weeks, he's disappeared, combining for four carries for 13 yards and five catches for 35 yards. The Broncos understandably abandoned the run game in a 50-point loss to the Dolphins in Week 3, but his drop in involvement the last two weeks has been concerning. Rookie Jaleel McLaughlin has seen more carries and has even scored. The Chicago Bears are an extremely inviting matchup for RBs, but will Perine even see enough touches to be worth considering as an RB4/flex in fantasy? We have our doubts.

Rachaad White Carries Low-End RB2 Value

Thursday, September 28, 6:26 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White has seen a heavy workload early in the season. In fact, he has 14 or more carries in each of the first three games this season. Sadly, White is only averaging 3.1 yards per carry on the ground right now. The Bucs are likely to continue pounding the ball on the ground with White. However, he's unlikely to have a ton of success versus the New Orleans Saints defense in Week 4. White should remain heavily involved in the offensive gameplan, but his lack of success puts him as a low-end RB2 for this week.
