Samaje Perine Out-Carried By Jaleel McLaughlin

Sunday, September 24, 8:44 PM

Denver Broncos running back Samaje Perine's fantasy value has taken a nosedive in the last two weeks. The Broncos running game never really had a chance in the 70-20 shellacking at the hands of the Miami Dolphins on Sunday in Week 3, but Perine was out-carried by rookie Jaleel McLaughlin. McLaughlin saw five carries for 15 yards, while Perine ran the ball only three times for nine yards. Perine also caught two of his three targets for an additional 15 yards. The 28-year-old looked pretty explosive in the season opener, but he's now had just four carries in the last two weeks. The Broncos backfield just hasn't been able to get going so far this year, and Javonte Williams should continue to be the clear lead back as the season progresses. A Week 4 meeting with the Chicago Bears is intriguing, but both Perine and McLaughlin cannot be counted on in starting fantasy lineups.

Zack Moss To Make Season Debut This Sunday

Friday, September 15, 7:32 PM

Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss (forearm) is off the injury report completely and will make his 2023 season debut this Sunday against the Houston Texans. After an ineffective start for the team's RBs in the Week 1 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars and with rookie Evan Hull (knee) on Injured Reserve, Moss could have a shot to handle lead-back duties for Indy this weekend. Deon Jackson flopped with 13 carries for 14 yards while adding five catches for 14 yards in the season opener. He also lost two fumbles. Moss might be slightly eased back in after returning from a fractured arm in training camp, but the 25-year-old now has the most upside of Colts RBs in fantasy after he averaged 4.8 yards per carry on 76 rushing attempts for the Colts in 2022. Jonathan Taylor (ankle) isn't eligible to return from IR until Week 5.
