Plays three offensive snaps
Perine failed to secure his one target and did not record a single rushing attempt in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Bears.
Perine was a non-factor in Bengals offensive attack, playing only three snaps on offense. Joe Mixon, on the other hand, continues to be the focal point in the running game while playing on 46 offensive snaps in the contest. With such little usage, Perine remains far off the fantasy radar. The 26-year-old would need an injury to Mixon to create a possible path to fantasy relevance.
