Cincinnati Bengals RB Samaje Perine rushed four times for 30 yards in Week 15 against the Denver Broncos and he added two receptions for 13 yards on two targets.
Huddle Up: Perine didn't do much from a fantasy perspective here, but he could be in line for a larger role in Week 16 against the Baltimore Ravens if Joe Mixon's leg injury forces him to miss time.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Samaje Perine rushed three times for just three yards in Week 12 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he had only one catch for 12 yards on his only target.
Huddle Up: Perine's production will be severely limited as long as Joe Mixon is healthy and playing at a super high level. Only keep Perine on a fantasy roster in deeper leagues, or as a handcuff to Mixon. The Bengals host the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 13.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Samaje Perine rushed five times for 20 yards in Week 9 against the Cleveland Browns, and he added two receptions for 17 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Perine has very limited fantasy appeal as long as Joe Mixon is healthy and active. The Bengals are off in Week 10 before returning to action in Week 11 at Las Vegas.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Samaje Perine rushed 11 times for 52 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Baltimore Ravens while hauling in one grab for 23 yards on his only target.
Huddle Up: Perine totaled 12 touches this week, and 15 touches last week. He has been a larger piece of the offense lately, emerging as a decent low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams. The Bengals travel to meet the New York Jets in Week 8.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Samaje Perine was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Averaging 4.3 yards per carry, Perine is a must-own for Joe Mixon owners in fantasy as a handcuff.

Cincinnati Bengals OG Jackson Carman and RB Samaje Perine were placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Oct. 11.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Samaje Perine rushed 11 times for a team-high 59 yards and he added four receptions for 24 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Perine was seeing some extra run with Joe Mixon entering the week with an ankle ailment. Mixon played, but Perine was much more effective with 5.4 yards per carry to 3.3 per tote for Mixon. The Bengals travel to meet the Lions in Week 6.

Cincinnati Bengals RBs Samaje Perine and Chris Evans would likely split touches in Week 5 if RB Joe Mixon (ankle) is forced to miss the game Sunday, Oct. 10, with an ankle injury, Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan said Thursday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: In other words, it wouldn't be a 1-for-1 replacement for those Mixon owners who prioritized adding Perine. Treat both Perine and Evans as flex options if Mixon is indeed out.

Free-agent RB Samaje Perine (Bengals) signed a two-year contract to remain with the Cincinnati Bengals on Wednesday, March 24. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Samaje Perine rushed for 95 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries against the Houston Texans in Week 16. He also caught four passes for 41 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Perine shared playing time with Giovani Bernard and was able to take advantage for the favorable matchup. He probably will not see as many touches next week against the Baltimore Ravens but could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues.
