Samaje Perine finds the end zone

Cincinnati Bengals running back Samaje Perine caught 3-of-4 targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in a 27-24 overtime win over the Chiefs in the AFC Championship game on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Perine didn't see any carries but he showed some slick moves in the open field on his 41-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter. He will continue to work behind Joe Mixon in the backfield but the Bengals have shown that they have confidence in him in the passing game. He will now wait to see whether he will face the 49ers or the Rams in the Super Bowl in two weeks.

Samaje Perine sees just two touches

Cincinnati Bengals running back Samaje Perine carried the ball once for four yards and added a 10-yard catch in a 34-31 win over the Chiefs in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Perine has seen his touches dwindle over the past few weeks as Joe Mixon has been seeing the majority of the backfield touches of late. Perine remains a quality fantasy handcuff but doesn't have much standalone value.

Samaje Perine picks up 43 all-purpose yards

Cincinnati Bengals running back Samaje Perine carried the ball four times for 30 yards and added 13 yards on two catches in a 15-10 win over the Broncos in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact

Perine continues to post decent yardage totals as the backup to Joe Mixon, although he remains just a handcuff for fantasy. He will take on the Ravens in Week 16.

Samaje Perine posts 33 all-purpose yards

Cincinnati Bengals running back Samaje Perine carried the ball four times for 11 yards and added 22 yards on four catches in a 26-23 overtime loss to the 49ers in Week 14.

Fantasy Impact

Perine continues to see a decent amount of work in the passing game as he's caught at least two balls in five of the past six contests. He remains a solid handcuff option who would have RB2 appeal if Joe Mixon were to get injured over the final month of the season.

Samaje Perine sees seven touches

Cincinnati Bengals running back Samaje Perine carried the ball five times for 36 yards and added two catches for five yards in a 41-22 loss to the Chargers in Week 13.

Fantasy Impact

Perine continues to work well behind starter Joe Mixon but he remains one of the top handcuffs in all of fantasy and would ascend to RB2 value in fantasy if Mixon were to miss time for any reason. He will go up against the 49ers in Week 14.
