Samaje Perine, RB (CIN)

Tiny workload

Perine had just three carries and one catch on 10 snaps despite the Bengals benching their offensive starters for most of the fourth quarter in their blowout win over the Steelers.

Teammate Joe Mixon is a full-on bell-cow back right now, so Perine's opportunities to produce are extremely limited.
