Robert Kelley had one big game and was otherwise sub par last season. The Redskins have been raving about Perine which means he is likely in line for his crack at the starting role within the first few weeks or perhaps even take the job in preseason. If he can be a true three-down back as they are claiming, he might just end up the top value of fantasy drafts this season.'

Samaje Perine falling behind Rob Kelley

Washington Redskins beat writer Rich Tandler believes Samaje Perine "is not going to be" the team's Week 1 starting running back. "He will learn but he is not going to push Rob Kelley out of the starting lineup anytime soon," Tandler said via CSN Mid-Atlantic.

Fantasy Impact

Despite a ton of offseason hype, Perine is falling behind Kelley after a treacherous preseason debut. Against the Ravens, Perine fumbled, dropped a pass and appeared confused about where to run, per Tandler. From a fantasy perspective, barring a complete 180 from the rookie, Kelley will enter Week 1 of the regular season as the Redskins' RB1 and should be targeted in fantasy drafts accordingly.
