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.

Will handle some team drills

September 17, 2020
Coach Adam Gase said Thursday that Perine (ankle) will take part in individual work and some team drills Thursday, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.
Perine's low-ankle sprain has completely sidelined him since late training camp, but it looks as though he could upgrade to being listed as a 'limited' participant on Thursday's practice report. The rookie fourth-round pick still remains uncertain for Sunday's game against the 49ers.
