Samaje Perine has quiet game for Dolphins in Week 17

Samaje Perine rushed five times for 16 yards in the Dolphins' Week 17 win over the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

Perine ran hard in this game but didn't get much going on limited work. Given a large body of work in the NFL of unsuccessful performances, it's unlikely Perine makes a splash in 2020, even on the thin depth chart of the Dolphins.

Samaje Perine signs with Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins have signed free agent running back Samaje Perine.

Fantasy Impact

With Myles Gaskin likely to miss Week 17, the Dolphins needed another warm body at running back. The sad part is that Perine may be the most talented healthy back on the roster. While he has been inefficient on the ground throughout his career, he has a solid college pedigree and can handle a workhorse amount of touches. Perine was wallowing on the Bengals practice squad, and will now likely be given a look in the offseason with an eye towards seeing if he has improved enough to warrant a roster spot in 2020.

Samaje Perine sees four touches with Chris Thompson out

Washington running back Samaje Perine rushed two times for 20 yards and caught two passes for eight yards in Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Perine took a back seat to Adrian Peterson and Kapri Bibbs with Chris Thompson out of the lineup and appears to be at least another injury or two away from any kind of relevance in fantasy.

Samaje Perine sees limited work in win

Samaje Perine carried the ball once for three yards and caught his only target for -3 yards Sunday against the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Perine saw his first work of the season thanks to the injury to Chris Thompson. Perine will return to fantasy irrelevance when Thompson is back from injury.

Samaje Perine a healthy scratch for Week 2

The Washington Redskins listed running back Samaje Perine among their inactive players for the team's home opener against Indianapolis. Perine did not play in Week 1 and has fallen behind Adrian Peterson, Chris Thompson and Rob Kelley.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson's emergence has relegated Perine to having no role. Perine was rumored to be a potential option in short yardage, but Peterson has that job for the time being. There's no reason to own Perine in fantasy unless you're in a really deep dynasty league and even then, it's hard to envision him making any impact.
