Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine was considered the 'most impressive back this spring' by head coach Jay Gruden, according to ESPN's John Keim.
Huddle Up: Perine has essentially been a league-average back since entering the league in 2017 and contributes very little in the passing game. Furthermore, Adrian Peterson, Derrius Guice and Chris Thompson are almost assuredly going to be the top three backs this fall. While owners should keep an eye out for more praise from Gruden on Perine moving forward, he'll be lucky to be active on game day more than a handful of times this fall barring injuries to the players in front of him on the depth chart.

Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (ankle) participated in practice Sunday, Aug. 26.
Huddle Up: Perine was competing for the starting running back job before the injury but could now be a question mark for the roster with Adrian Peterson, Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson in front of him. He probably should be avoided in all leagues since he likely would see limited touches if he stays with the Redskins.

Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (ankle) worked on the side without pads Tuesday, Aug. 21.
Huddle Up: Timing is everything. Perine needs to quickly return to remain in the race for touches.

Updating an ongoing story, Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (ankle) is expected to miss about one week, according to a source.
Huddle Up: This comes as a relief for Perine and anyone considering him in fantasy drafts. He could face a setback against Rob Kelley in the battle for assuming RB1 duties vacated by the injured Derrius Guice. Either way, the winner is no better than a flex consideration.
