2020 Fantasy Outlook
Taken in the fourth round of this year's draft, Perine joins a backfield that has become fairly crowded, as the Jets also picked up the ageless Frank Gore in free agency. While Perine never had to handle a big workload in college, he showed a strong work ethic and turned himself into a useful receiver during his final year at Florida. He is not a premium athletic specimen, but Perine showed good patience and vision in waiting for holes to develop, and the power and balance to get through them to the second level. In some ways, he is a bargain-bin version of Le'Veon Bell, but as the real deal demonstrated last season, coach Adam Gase's offensive scheme might not be a great fit for that particular skill set. With two veterans ahead of him on the depth chart, Perine could wind up spending much of his rookie season trying to make a positive impression on special teams while waiting for his path to a larger role to open.

January 3, 2021
Perine -- who spent Week 17 on the reserve/COVID-19 list -- finishes his rookie season with 232 yards and two touchdowns on 64 carries and 63 yards on 11 catches.
ANALYSIS
The fourth-round pick out of Florida battled ankle injuries, which limited him to 10 appearances. Perine averaged just 3.6 yards per carry, but some of that ineffectiveness can be excused by New York's poor offensive line play and overall ineptitude on offense under since-fired head coach Adam Gase. With the team unlikely to bring back Gase favorite Frank Gore, Perine could find himself atop the running back depth chart next season, though the Jets will almost certainly bring in competition at the position via free agency or the draft.
