  • Bengals' Samaje Perine: Scores in possible Cincy finale

    Perine rushed five times for 22 yards and a touchdown while catching three of four targets for four yards in Sunday's 23-20 AFC Championship Game loss to the Chiefs. Joe Burrow led the Bengals with 30 rushing yards on four attempts, but Perine was more effective than Joe Mixon, who mustered only 19 yards on eight carries. Perine tied the score at 20-20 with a two-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter. That touchdown could prove to be his last with the Bengals, as Perine will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

  • Bengals' Samaje Perine: Runs well in win

    Perine had seven carries for 33 yards and another five catches for 31 yards in Sunday's AFC divisional-round win over the Bills. The Bengals ran the ball well all day despite missing three starting offensive linemen. Joe Mixon took the lead and was great, but Perine was solid all day too.

  • Bengals' Samaje Perine: Limited work in win

    Perine had four carries for three yards and three catches for 19 yards on four targets in Saturday's win over the Patriots. Perine took a back seat to Joe Mixon after carrying a heavier workload in previous games. Is this a harbinger of the workload split in weeks to come, or just how it worked out this week? The Bengals jumped out to a big lead early, which might have dictated their usage between the two backs.

  • Bengals' Samaje Perine: Eight touches in win

    Perine had seven carries for 24 yards and one reception for no gain in Sunday's 34-23 win over the Buccaneers. In Joe Mixon's second game back from a two-game absence due to a concussion, Perine saw 38 percent of Cincinnati's offensive snaps compared to the latter's 64 percent. Perine ultimately received half as many touches compared to his backfield mate. This week, New England's stout run defense doesn't provide a particularly appetizing matchup in Week 16.

  • Bengals' Samaje Perine: Could be involved with Mixon back

    Perine will cede starting running back duties to Joe Mixon in Sunday's game against the Browns after the latter practiced fully Wednesday and cleared the NFL's concussion protocol, but Perine may have earned a larger role than he previously held after excelling as a replacement for Mixon over the past two games, James Palmer of NFL Network reports. According to Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic, head coach Zac Taylor already confirmed Wednesday that Mixon would reclaim the starting role, even though Perine amassed 248 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown on 48 touches (38 carries, 10 catches) over the previous two weeks while helping the Bengals knock off likely playoff teams in the Titans and Chiefs. Before exiting early in the Bengals' Week 11 win over the Steelers, Mixon had played more than two-thirds of the snaps in each of the team's first nine contests, but it's possible a more even timeshare between him and Perine may be in place Sunday. Perine demonstrated over the last two games that he's capable of filling in on both early and passing downs while churning out yardage efficiently, making him a reliable fill-in option if Mixon should need a breather during a given possession. That said, Perine can't be counted on to see enough touches to make him a viable fantasy lineup option outside of deeper leagues now that Mixon is back in the picture.

  • Bengals' Samaje Perine: Tallies 155 total yards

    Perine had 21 carries for 106 yards along with six catches for 49 yards in the Bengals' Week 13 win over the Chiefs. Perine consistently converted first downs against the Chiefs, often breaking tackles in the process. About the only thing he didn't do was get into the end zone, instead seeing Chris Evans record the go-ahead receiving touchdown in the fourth quarter. Even if Joe Mixon returns next week, Perine has likely earned a bigger role in the Bengals offense than he had prior to Mixon's concussion.

  • Bengals' Samaje Perine: Set to fill in for Mixon

    With Joe Mixon (concussion) inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Perine is in line to see an expanded role in the Bengals' Week 13 backfield. While Mixon was sidelined in last weekend's 20-16 win over the Titans, Perine logged 17 carries for 58 yards and a TD to go along with four catches (on seven targets) for 35 yards. This time around, Perine figures to log the bulk of the Bengals' backfield touches once again, with Trayveon Williams and Chris Evans on hand in reserve, a context that gives Perine some Week 13 fantasy lineup utility.

  • Bengals' Samaje Perine: Appears poised for another start

    Perine is tentatively on track to serve as Cincinnati's lead back for Sunday's game against the Chiefs with Joe Mixon listed as questionable but not expected to clear the NFL's five-step concussion protocol in advance of the 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Mixon still has a few more hours to potentially gain clearance from an independent neurologist, but after he was able to practice only on a limited basis this week, the Bengals may not be keen on handing him his typical workload even if he defies the odds and plays Sunday. With that in mind, Perine looks in store for a three-down role for the second game in a row, after he played 80 percent of the snaps on offense in last week's 20-16 win over the Titans. Perine carried a season-high 17 times for 58 yards and a touchdown in the win and hauled in four of his seven targets for 35 yards.

  • Bengals' Samaje Perine: Carries load for Bengals

    Perine had 17 carries for 58 yards and a touchdown along with four catches for 35 yards in Sunday's win over the Titans. Perine's yards per carry (3.4) aren't very impressive, but he earned some very tough first downs in short-yardage situations and got stronger as the game progressed. He's unlikely to supplant Joe Mixon (concussion) when Mixon is ready to return, but he'll continue to earn opportunities to spell him at times.

  • Bengals' Samaje Perine: Set for expanded role Sunday

    Perine is poised to serve as the Bengals' starting running back Sunday against the Titans with Joe Mixon (concussion) ruled out for the contest, James Rapien of SI.com reports. Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site adds that Chris Evans and Trayveon Williams are candidates to see expanded roles with Mixon out of the lineup, but Perine profiles as the top option to replace Mixon as the team's lead man out of the backfield. Sunday, After Mixon's early exit in the Bengals' 37-30 win over the Steelers in Week 11, Perine recorded 11 carries for 30 yards and caught all four of his targets for 52 yards and three touchdowns.

  • Bengals' Samaje Perine: Week 12 Adds (RB Preview)

    Joe Burrow is throwing more than eight passes per game to his running backs. Perine should be in line for 15-plus carries and five or more catches if Mixon is out. The Titans present a difficult matchup, but Perine has top-five upside because of his volume.

  • Bengals' Samaje Perine: Week 12 Waiver Priority List

    Joe Mixon (concussion) could be out in Week 12 at Tennessee, which would give Perine the chance for a big workload. It helps that Perine just stood out at Pittsburgh in Week 11 with 11 carries for 30 yards, along with four catches for 52 yards and three touchdowns on four targets for 30 PPR points. The matchup against the Titans won't be easy -- Tennessee has allowed just two touchdowns to running backs all season and none on the ground since Week 1 -- but Perine should get enough volume to make him a No. 2 running back in all leagues, especially in PPR. Perine is worth adding for at least 15 percent of your remaining FAB.

  • Bengals' Samaje Perine: Three receiving touchdowns

    Perine came up big in relief of an injured Joe Mixon on Sunday, catching four passes for 52 yards and three touchdowns and logging 11 carries for 30 yards. Mixon left late in the first half with a concussion, and Perine took over the majority of the running back duties. Trayveon Williams also chipped in with two late carries. If Mixon can't return next week, Perine will be a priority pickup, albeit with a tough matchup on the road against the Titans.

  • Bengals' Samaje Perine: More work in blowout win

    Perine had six carries for 51 yards and one catch for three more yards in Sunday's romp over Carolina. Perine was able to play 25 offensive snaps, with Joe Mixon resting after scoring a whopping five times. The Bengals rested most of their offensive starters with a little under 4:00 remaining in the third quarter.

  • Bengals' Samaje Perine: Barely involved against Falcons

    Perine had just one carry for zero yards and two catches for eight yards in Sunday's win over the Falcons. Once again, Joe Mixon handled the lion's share of the offensive snaps and the carries for the Bengals. Perine has just seven touches combined over the last two weeks.

  • Bengals' Samaje Perine: Minimal involvement in win

    Perine had two carries for five yards and caught both of his targets for 11 yards in Sunday's 30-26 win over the Saints. Perine played just 14 of the Bengals' 57 offensive snaps while starting running back Joe Mixon was on the field for 41 snaps. Though Cincinnati has struggled on the ground this season, the team is committed to giving Mixon the opportunity to get going. For that reason, Perine will likely continue to see limited action in relief of Mixon. The 27-year-old Perine will look to make the most of his touches when the Bengals host the Falcons in Week 7.

  • Bengals' Samaje Perine: Good to go Week 6

    Perine (abdomen) was a full practice participant Friday and doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game in New Orleans. As usual, Perine is on track to handle No. 2 duties out of the backfield behind three-down workhorse Joe Mixon. The role hasn't translated to much playing time or consistent touches for Perine, who is averaging just three carries and two receptions per game and hasn't seen the field for more than one-third of the snaps on offense in any of the Bengals' first five contests.

  • Bengals' Samaje Perine: Limited with abdomen injury

    Perine was a limited practice participant Wednesday due to an abdomen injury, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. Perine filled his usual role in the Week 5 loss to Baltimore, taking seven touches for 56 yards while playing 17 snaps off the bench behind Joe Mixon. His ability to practice in any capacity at the beginning of the week suggests Perine should be ready for a similar role this Sunday in New Orleans. If not, the Bengals can turn to Chris Evans to sub in for Mixon on third downs and give him the occasional breather on early downs.

  • Bengals' Samaje Perine: Week 4 Adds (RB Preview)

    The Bengals play on Thursday night, and while Joe Mixon is expected to be OK after injuring his ankle, we don't know for sure. if Mixon misses time, Perine will be a low-end No. 2 running back with PPR upside.

  • Bengals' Samaje Perine: Week 4 Waiver Priority List

    It sounds like Joe Mixon will be fine for Week 4 based on what Zac Taylor said Monday, but since the game is Thursday, it's worth adding Perine as a precaution. If Mixon were out against the Dolphins then Perine would be a high-end flex option in all leagues. In Week 3 at the Jets, the game where Mixon was injured, Perine had nine carries for 47 yards, along with two catches for 14 yards and a touchdown on two targets. He's the handcuff for Mixon, and Perine could still have value down the road if Mixon were to get hurt again at some point. Perine is worth adding for 5 percent of your remaining FAB.
