Samaje Perine gets six touches in Week 18

Samaje Perine rushed for just seven yards on three carries but added 23 yards on three receptions in Sunday's 27-14 loss to the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

Perine finishes up his first season with the Broncos just shy of 700 yards of total offense on 103 touches. He performed well in the exact role he was brought in to play, as he only carried the rock 53 times but hauled in 50 passes for 455 yards over 17 games. Those 50 catches place him third on the team behind wide receivers Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy.

Samaje Perine officially active for Week 18

Broncos RB Samaje Perine is officially active for a Week 18 matchup with Las Vegas.

Fantasy Impact

Perine did not have an injury designation but was listed on the injury report with a rest day early in the week. Perine will suit up and fantasy managers should leave him out of their Week 18 lineups.

Samaje Perine sees six touches in Week 17

Samaje Perine carried the ball four times for 10 yards and added two receptions for 16 yards in a 16-9 win over the Chargers in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Perine mixed in behind Javonte Williams and Jaleel McLaughlin in the win over their division rivals. The veteran hasn't seen double-digit touches since back in Week 5 against the Jets. He will not be a strong fantasy option against the Raiders in Week 18.

Samaje Perine logs five touches in Week 16 loss

Samaje Perine carried the ball once for two yards while also hauling in four of his five targets for 27 yards in the Broncos' 26-23 Week 16 loss to the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

Perine continues to make a modest impact as a pass-catching option out of the backfield of late, finishing with two or more receptions in three of his last five games for the Broncos. The running back could offer fantasy managers a sneaky option in PPR formats, but will be difficult to confidently trust in lineups despite a favorable Week 17 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Samaje Perine leads rushing attack in Week 15 loss to Lions

Samaje Perine rushed six times for 37 yards while also catching his lone target for 11 yards in the Broncos' 42-17 loss to the Detroit Lions in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact

Perine continues to see modest involvement out of the crowded Denver backfield, recording at least seven touches in four of his last five games for the Broncos. The running back offers more value as a reliable pass-catching option in PPR formats, but remains behind Javonte Williams as the primary option out of the backfield for head coach Sean Payton ahead of a Week 16 contest against the New England Patriots.
