Analysis: It's a tough end to a decent rookie season for Perine, who put together back-to-back 100-yard efforts in November but averaged a pedestrian 3.4 yards per carry with just two total touchdowns. He'll likely battle Rob Kelley to be Washington's primary rusher in 2018.

Analysis: Perine was hurt leading up to last week's game but still got the start and had 17 carries and three receptions.
|Dec. 24, 2017 11:38 AM PT12:38 PM MT1:38 PM CT2:38 PM ET19:38 GMT3:38 12:38 PM MST2:38 PM EST1:38 PM CT23:38 UAE14:38 ETNaN:� - Perine left Sunday's game due to an Achilles injury, but has returned.
Analysis: Keep an eye on this situation.

He added three receptions for 21 yards and fumbled once.|
|Dec. 21, 2017 11:21 AM PT12:21 PM MT1:21 PM CT2:21 PM ET19:21 GMT3:21 12:21 PM MST2:21 PM EST1:21 PM CT23:21 UAE14:21 ETNaN:� - Perine is active for Sunday after he tweaked his groin at Thursday's practice.
Analysis: Perine has been Washington's lead back, but has not been able to take advantage of his opportunity, averaging a mere 2.8 yards on 43 carries in his last three games. He has a tough matchup with a Broncos team allowing 3.31 yards per rush - second best in the NFL.
|Dec. 17, 2017 1:54 PM PT2:54 PM MT3:54 PM CT4:54 PM ET21:54 GMT5:54 2:54 PM MST4:54 PM EST3:54 PM CT1:54 UAE (+1)16:54 ETNaN:� - Samaje Perine ran for 37 yards on 14 carries Sunday in the Washington Redskins' 20-15 win over the Arizona Cardinals. He added two receptions for 29 yards.
Analysis: The rookie now hasn't topped 45 rushing yards in three straight games and is averaging a meager 2.8 yards per carry behind the Redskins' injury-riddled offensive line during that span. Perine is proving to be a rather ordinary talent, though he's still getting plenty of work with an average of 20.6 touches over the past five weeks.
|Dec. 10, 2017 6:35 PM PT7:35 PM MT8:35 PM CT9:35 PM ET2:35 GMT10:35 7:35 PM MST9:35 PM EST8:35 PM CT6:35 UAE (+1)21:35 ETNaN:� - Samaje Perine ran for 45 yards on 17 carries Sunday in the Washington Redskins' 30-13 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. He added four receptions for seven yards.|
|Dec. 1, 2017 9:51 PM PT10:51 PM MT11:51 PM CT12:51 AM ET5:51 GMT13:51 10:51 PM MST12:51 AM EST11:51 PM CT9:51 UAE0:51 ETNaN:� - Samaje Perine ran for 38 yards on 12 carries Thursday in the Washington Redskins' 38-14 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He added three receptions for 31 yards.
Analysis: The rookie regressed after stringing together the first two 100-yard rushing efforts of his career over his last two outings. Perine has clearly established himself as the top guy in the Redskins' injury-depleted backfield, though he may rate as an RB3 next week against the surging Chargers, as his usage generally drops in situations where his team is playing from behind.
|Nov. 23, 2017 8:11 PM PT9:11 PM MT10:11 PM CT11:11 PM ET4:11 GMT12:11 9:11 PM MST11:11 PM EST10:11 PM CT8:11 UAE23:11 ETNaN:� - Samaje Perine ran for 100 yards on 24 carries Thursday in the Washington Redskins' 20-10 win over the New York Giants. He added three receptions for 30 yards.
Analysis: Perine gained just three yards on five carries in the first half, but finished with his second straight 100-yard game. The rookie has totaled 217 yards on 47 carries with a touchdown in his last two games after he had just 210 on 66 rushes in the season's first eight contests. Clearly, he's trending up and facing the reeling Cowboys next week should only help.
|Nov. 22, 2017 10:52 AM PT11:52 AM MT12:52 PM CT1:52 PM ET18:52 GMT2:52 11:52 AM MST1:52 PM EST12:52 PM CT22:52 UAE13:52 ETNaN:� - Perine is listed as questionable for a Thanksgiving matchup with the Giants because of a finger injury.
Analysis: Though this is something to keep an eye on because Perine has been limited in practice, he is expected to play and be the every-down back now that Chris Thompson is out.
|Nov. 19, 2017 4:12 PM PT5:12 PM MT6:12 PM CT7:12 PM ET0:12 GMT8:12 5:12 PM MST7:12 PM EST6:12 PM CT4:12 UAE (+1)19:12 ETNaN:� - Samaje Perine ran for a season-high 117 yards and one touchdown on 23 carries Sunday in the Washington Redskins' 34-31 loss to the New Orleans Saints. He added one reception for nine yards.
Analysis: Perine had a huge performance and looks to be in line to handle a bulk of the rushing responsibilities after Chris Thompson was carted off the field with what the Redskins said was a broken right fibula in the third quarter.
|Nov. 12, 2017 3:45 PM PT4:45 PM MT5:45 PM CT6:45 PM ET23:45 GMT7:45 4:45 PM MST6:45 PM EST5:45 PM CT3:45 UAE (+1)18:45 ETNaN:� - Samaje Perine ran for 35 yards on nine carries Sunday in the Washington Redskins' 38-30 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He added one reception for 25 yards.
Analysis: Perine had his most carries since Week 6 and could see more action if Rob Kelley's leg injury is serious.
|Nov. 5, 2017 4:36 PM PT5:36 PM MT6:36 PM CT7:36 PM ET0:36 GMT8:36 5:36 PM MST7:36 PM EST6:36 PM CT4:36 UAE (+1)19:36 ETNaN:� - Samaje Perine ran for nine yards on two carries Sunday in the Washington Redskins' 17-14 win over the Seattle Seahawks.|
|Oct. 15, 2017 1:53 PM PT2:53 PM MT3:53 PM CT4:53 PM ET20:53 GMT4:53 1:53 PM MST3:53 PM EST3:53 PM CT0:53 UAE (+1)16:53 ETNaN:� - Samaje Perine ran for 23 yards on nine carries Sunday in the Washington Redskins' 26-24 win over the San Francisco 49ers. He added three receptions for 24 yards and one touchdown.
Analysis: Perine is averaging exactly 3.0 yards per carry for an offense that can't get anything going on the ground.
|Oct. 3, 2017 9:12 PM PT10:12 PM MT11:12 PM CT12:12 AM ET4:12 GMT12:12 9:12 PM MST11:12 PM EST11:12 PM CT8:12 UAE0:12 ETNaN:� - Samaje Perine ran for 27 yards on six carries Monday in the Washington Redskins' 29-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.|
|Sep. 24, 2017 8:44 PM PT9:44 PM MT10:44 PM CT11:44 PM ET3:44 GMT11:44 8:44 PM MST10:44 PM EST10:44 PM CT7:44 UAE (+1)23:44 ETNaN:� - Samaje Perine ran for 49 yards on 19 carries Sunday in the Washington Redskins' 27-10 win over the Oakland Raiders. He added one reception for six yards and fumbled once.|
|Sep. 17, 2017 6:00 PM PT7:00 PM MT8:00 PM CT9:00 PM ET1:00 GMT9:00 6:00 PM MST8:00 PM EST8:00 PM CT5:00 UAE (+1)21:00 ETNaN:� - Samaje Perine ran for 67 yards on 21 carries Sunday in the Washington Redskins' 27-20 win over the Los Angeles Rams. He added one reception for zero yards.
Analysis: The rookie didn't receive a single carry in Week 1, but got heavy usage in the second half after starter Rob Kelley exited with a rib injury that threatens his availability for next week's game against Oakland. Perine will be worth considering for a starting spot in fantasy lineups if Kelley can't go against the Raiders.
|Aug. 28, 2017 7:45 AM PT8:45 AM MT9:45 AM CT10:45 AM ET14:45 GMT22:45 7:45 AM MST9:45 AM EST9:45 AM CT18:45 UAE10:45 ETNaN:� - Perine didn't do much to challenge Rob Kelley's starting job, gaining 5 yards on 5 carries in the Redskins' win over the Bengals on Sunday.
Analysis: Perine still figures to get plenty of opportunities this season, so keep an eye on him and how productive Kelley is early.
|Aug. 20, 2017 10:10 AM PT11:10 AM MT12:10 PM CT1:10 PM ET17:10 GMT1:10 10:10 AM MST12:10 PM EST12:10 PM CT21:10 UAE13:10 ETNaN:� - Perine, a fourth-rounder from Oklahoma, ran for 45 yards on eight carries.
Analysis: Perine also caught a 29-yard pass from backup QB Colt McCoy, part of a much stronger performance for Perine than a week ago, when he fumbled. "A major step up," coach Jay Gruden said.
