Perine has played 45% and 50% of the snaps in the first two games. Sadly, that only equates to averaging eight touches and 51 total yards. Perine hasn't had enough volume or scoring opportunities. Some of that can be traced to Sean Payton's pass-heavy approach. The team is not only top-12 in passing rate but second in red zone passing rate. Perine has been efficient with his rushing opportunities, ranking 12th in yards after contact per attempt and fourth in elusive rating. There's a path to a solid day with a plus matchup incoming in Week 3. Week 3 Positional Value: RB3

Samaje Perine sees little work in Week 2 showdown vs Commanders

Despite the Denver Broncos' nail-biting 35-33 loss to the Washington Commanders, 28-year-old running back Samaje Perine's performance was less than stellar.

Fantasy Impact

With only one carry for a meager 4 yards, Perine's ground game was virtually non-existent. However, he did manage to make a slight impact in the passing game, hauling in 3 of his 4 targets for a total of 20 yards. His lack of touchdowns, both on the ground and through the air, left fantasy managers wanting more. Currently ranked as RB40 for the week and RB32 for the season, Perine's fantasy value is dwindling. His performance in Week 2 did little to boost his stock, and with the Miami Dolphins on the horizon, Perine will need to step up his game if he wants to climb the fantasy rankings.
