Samaje Perine Could Be Cut To Clear Cap Space

Thursday, May 30, 2:05 AM

Denver Broncos running back Samaje Perine could be one of the players released or traded by the team this offseason, according to Nick Kosmider of The Athletic. Kosmider notes that "it wouldn't be a huge surprise if the Broncos moved on from Perine" given that releasing him would create roughly $3 million in cap space. That's a very reasonable outcome for Denver as they look for extra money and find ways to win with younger players. Perine, 28, broke free for 238 rushing and 455 receiving yards in 2023. He should be rostered as a decent RB4 option in most fantasy leagues.

Tony Jones Jr. Elevated To Active Roster

Saturday, November 18, 9:11 PM

Arizona Cardinals running back Tony Jones Jr. has been elevated to the active roster ahead of the Week 11 matchup against the Houston Texans. The Cardinals are without Emari Demercado (toe), so Jones has been added to the roster as insurance. However, Jones is unlikely to have a big role in the offense with James Conner back in the picture. This season, Jones has 85 rushing yards on 23 attempts with two touchdowns in six games. He could see a few snaps on Sunday, but it probably won't be enough to warrant streaming Jones in any fantasy formats.
