Looking across the fantasy landscape, there are certain backup RBs that get elevated due to their potential if something were to happen to the start ahead of them. However, no one seems to be talking about Perine and his upside if we see Mixon deal with injury again in 2021. There's no one else on this depth chart that can step in and take over a significant workload. In a high-powered offense, Perine doesn't have to be ultra-efficient with his opportunity because scoring opportunities will be available on a weekly basis. I'm typically not a proponent of drafting insurance RBs, but if you do select Mixon early on in your draft, doubling back and snagging Perine with your last pick is a very smart move.
