In case you haven't heard, the Jets released Le'Veon Bell this week. They'll move forward with Gore and Perine, and maybe bring back Kalen Ballage. Good times. Gore leads the NFL with 66 touches without a touchdown. Shocker. No other player has more than 42 touches without a score. Perine hasn't been trusted with more than nine opportunities in the three games Bell was out, so he's surely going to be difficult to trust. Of the production the Dolphins have allowed to running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends, it's been running backs who've accounted for 40.3 percent of that production, which is the fourth-highest percentage in the league, so the matchup isn't really the problem. The problem is that no Jets running back has scored more than 10.2 PPR points on the season. I cannot express how difficult it is to have your running backs be this bad. Are the Dolphins the cure? Probably not, but they have allowed 4.97 yards per carry, 6.81 yards per target, and a touchdown every 15.8 touches to running backs. Look, we know what Gore is at this point. He's going to 12-16 carries and maybe one reception. If you're in a pinch, he should offer 4-8 PPR points but expecting him to find the end zone is a poor bet considering he's scored twice on his last 486 carries. Oh, and the Jets have scored just 13.8 points per game. Perine is the unknown, as we just haven't seen enough of him to say he's a bad bet, though anyone playing under Adam Gase probably falls under that category. Perine is someone I'd stash in case they decide to see if he's the long-term answer for the Jets as a franchise, even though cleaning house is likely happening soon. For now, Perine is just a RB4/5 hopeful.

Frank Gore (hand) questionable for Week 8 vs Chiefs

Jets RB Frank Gore (hand) is questionable for Week 8 against the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

Gore was a limited participant in practice on both Wednesday and Friday. However, he didn't practice on Thursday. His absence would be a boost for the fantasy value of Lamical Perine, though it's still difficult to start a Jets RB with confidence.
