Samaje Perine Is Now Cincinnati Bengals’ Key Handcuff Running Back Behind Joe Mixon In Fantasy Football
The Cincinnati Bengals released their long-time number two running back, Giovanni Bernard. The move leaves NCAA single-game rushing record holder Samaje Perine as their number two running back directly behind Joe Mixon. Perine showed some burst in 2020, averaging 4.8 yards per rush for the Bengals. Unless the Bengals draft a stud running back in the early rounds Samaje Perine enters the conversation as one of the prized handcuffs for fantasy football running backs.
Dynasty owners of Mixon or Perine should consider making a trade to secure the other. Cincinnati is likely to go heavy at offensive line this draft in order to protect their franchise quarterback, Joe Burrow. The Cincinnati Bengals are likely to look for more production out of their backfield behind an improved offensive line and the release of Bernard makes it a clear 1-2 backfield.
