Miami Dolphins running back La'Mical Perine should see an increased workload going forward after the release of Le'Veon Bell. He saw seven carries for 27 yards and hauled in two receptions for nine yards in the receiving game. For some reason the Dolphins continue to use veteran Frank Gore as the lead back. Perine has potential and deserves a longer look going forward. Perine is worth stashing in most formats, but won't be an ideal fantasy option against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7.
New York Jets running back La'Mical Perine could get more involved in the backfield with Le'Veon Bell being released. Veteran running back Frank Gore is expected to be the lead back for their Week 6 matchup with the Miami Dolphins. However, Perine is likely going to serve as the backup behind Gore. Sadly, Perine has not done much damage this season and that's unlikely to change. The Jets offense is horrendous, so fantasy owners shouldn't bother taking a chance of Perine even with extra carries.
New York Jets rookie running back La'Mical Perine will have a bigger role in the backfield alongside veteran Frank Gore now that Le'Veon Bell is out of town. "Perine's definitely going to get a bigger role. Frank, you're not going to lean on him as heavy a load. Getting Perine really involved is going to be critical for us," head coach Adam Gase said. Gore is the team's leading rusher this year with 64 carries for 204 yards (3.2 yards per carry), but Perine will get his chance to mix in with Bell out of the picture. Perine was impressing the coaching staff before an ankle injury in training camp. The injury slowed him down and his integration into the offense. The fourth-rounder has 15 carries for 56 yards (3.7 yards per carry) in four games this year. Perine, 22, has three-down abilities but is in a dysfunctional offense and probably won't see a huge workload right away. He's worth stashing in deeper leagues, though, and should most certainly be owned in dynasty/keeper leagues.
New York Jets running back La'Mical Perine has seen some action over the last few weeks due to the team having a banged up backfield. However, Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) is expected to return for the Week 5 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals. Perine didn't have much value anyway, but the return of Bell makes Perine basically useless in fantasy leagues. His fantasy value has basically disappeared, so it's safe to cut him in most formats.
New York Jets running back La'Mical Perine has been unable to make much of an impact since making his NFL debut in Week 2. On Thursday, Perine rushed five times for 15 yards in the loss to the Denver Broncos. Quarterback Sam Darnold surprisingly finished with more rushing attempts than Perine in the game. The Jets offense is horrendous this season, which basically kills Perine's value. He won't be much of an option versus the Arizona Cardinals in Week 5.
New York Jets running back La'Mical Perine has been unable to find much room to run early in the season. He made his NFL debut in Week 2, but hasn't been able to impress the team. Perine has 10 rushing attempts for 41 yards through two games. He'll have a tough challenge against the Denver Broncos who allowed 2.7 yards per carry against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week. Perine has some stashing value, but won't be worth using against the Broncos elite run defense.
New York Jets running back La'Mical Perine made his NFL debut last week, but wasn't able to do much damage. He was expected to see a higher volume of touches during the Week 3 matchup versus the Indianapolis Colts. Perine saw seven carries for 24 yards in the loss. Veteran running back Frank Gore continues to be the workhorse back with Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) sidelined. Perine has some upside, but probably won't be able to find much room to run in New York. He belongs on the waiver wire in 12-team formats.
New York Jets running back La'Mical Perine (ankle) was able to fully practice on Thursday, which means he should be fine for the Week 3 matchup versus the Indianapolis Colts. He made his NFL debut last week, but didn't see many chances. Perine carried the ball three times for 17 yards in the loss. He could take away some touches from Frank Gore this week. It's unlikely that the Jets want Gore to see 21 carries again. Perine won't be worth starting in most formats, but he could be someone to stash in 12/14 team leagues.
New York Jets running back La'Mical Perine (ankle) was banged up throughout the week, but was able to suit up for Sunday's contest. He carried the ball three times for 17 yards in the Week 2 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) is going to be sidelined for a few weeks, which means someone needs to step up. Frank Gore saw 21 carries in this one, but Perine does have potential. Sadly, he'll get a tough matchup against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3. Fantasy owners shouldn't jump to pick up Perine just yet, but keep an eye on him over the next few weeks.
New York Jets running back La'Mical Perine (ankle) didn't play in Week 1, but is set to make his NFL debut against the 49ers on Sunday. With Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) on the injured reserve, Perine could play a small role right away as the passing-down option when veteran Frank Gore rests. In season-long leagues, Perine should be ignored, but he's an interesting punt play in DFS this week and should get at least a few touches.
New York Jets rookie running back La'Mical Perine (ankle) is questionable to face the 49ers in Week 2. Perine was limited in practice the last two days, so he has a real chance to make his NFL debut after he was inactive in the season-opener. The Jets could really use some depth with Le'Veon Bell on Injured Reserve. But even if Perine suits up on Sunday, he's unlikely to see much of a workload behind veteran Frank Gore. Plus, he'll be facing a really tough San Francisco defense after an offseason in which he didn't get many on-field repetitions.
New York Jets rookie wide receiver Denzel Mims (hamstring) and rookie running back La'Mical Perine (ankle) have both been ruled out for Week 1 against the Bills. Mims is dealing with injuries to both of his hamstrings, so he might not even be ready for Week 2. Breshad Perriman, Jamison Crowder and Chris Hogan should be the team's top three receivers to kick off the season. Perine is recovering from a low ankle sprain but shouldn't be out for too long. He should have a role on offense when he's healthy, but how much of a role he has remains to be seen with Le'Veon Bell and Frank Gore ahead of him on the depth chart.
New York Jets rookie running back La'Mical Perine (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday ahead of Week 1 against the Bills. Perine recently suffered a low-ankle sprain, but he's not expected to be out for long. That doesn't mean he'll necessarily be active for the season opener this Sunday, though, and he's third on the RB depth chart behind Le'Veon Bell and veteran Frank Gore. The rookie from Florida should have some kind of a role when he's healthy, but it probably won't be a fantasy relevant one unless Bell or Gore suffer an injury that causes them to miss time. The 22-year-old should only be rostered in dynasty/keeper leagues for the time being.
The New York Jets announced on Thursday that they signed rookie running back Lamical Perine to his rookie contract after they selected him in the fourth round (120th overall) back in April. The Florida product became the fourth of the team's nine draft picks to sign. He rushed for a team-high 826 yards and seven touchdowns as a junior and ran for 676 yards and six touchdowns in 13 starts in 2019. Perine also added a career-high 40 catches for 262 yards and five touchdowns. There's upside in the long-term in New York once Le'Veon Bell is out of the picture, but there's not a lot of 2020 upside with Bell and veteran Frank Gore in the backfield. The rookie could factor in on some third downs in his first season, but he's way more attractive in dynasty/keeper affairs.
Senior Bowl executive director and former NFL scout Jim Nagy expects rookie running back Lamical Perine "to be (Le'Veon Bell's) top backup next year." Nagy also wouldn't be surprised if Perine emerged as "the guy" for the Jets running game in two or three years despite his 4.6-second 40-yard dash at the NFL combine back in February. Perine may not have top-end speed for a running back, but he has plenty of short-area burst and vision on the football field. The Jets signed veteran Frank Gore to split backfield touches with Bell in 2020, but Perine could work his way into the mix if either of the top two backs are injured. Only those in dynasty/keeper leagues should be drafting Perine in 2020, however.
With the 129th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the New York Jets took Charlotte offensive tackle Cameron Clark. Clark was a good run blocker in college, but his pass protection will need some work, and the Jets shouldnt expect Clark to start for them off the bat, especially when the team already drafted a first-round lineman. Still, long term, his run-blocking prowess could help open rushing lanes for whoever lines up behind the quarterback in 2021 or 2022, whether it be Le'Veon Bell or, more likely, some younger running back like the newly drafted Lamical Perine.
The New York Jets used the first of three fourth-round picks on Florida running back Lamical Perine. The former four-star recruit is an efficient runner with strong receiving skills, which could get him on the field in passing downs. He lacks consistency at times and scouts have criticized his ability to find the hole. He'll slot in as a backup for Le'Veon Bell but is the type of running back that could have fantasy value if he winds up in more of a running-back-by-committee scheme.
