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.

Zamir White Continues To See Minimal Usage

Friday, September 29, 5:27 PM

Las Vegas Raiders running back Zamir White has been virtually non-existent for the Raiders over the past three games. White is the backup to the Raiders workhorse, Josh Jacobs, which has led to minimal opportunities and production. Through three weeks, White has totaled five carries for 24 yards, a lost fumble, and one reception for five yards. Six opportunities for 29 total yards and zero touchdowns in three games is minimal usage. White is a nonfactor in fantasy and should continue to be insignificant to the offense regardless of the matchup as long as Jacobs remains healthy. Fantasy managers can leave White on their waiver wires or stash him on the bench as an insurance back.
