With Williams out last week, McLaughlin became a popular pickup as he and Perine essentially split the workload. McLaughlin has looked impressive, but it seems like Williams will be back in the fold for Week 6. Williams may be more of a flex option at this point and part of a three-headed monster at RB. While Williams is still the back to own here, the Broncos don't really have a reason to give Williams a huge workload.
DEN RB Samaje Perine - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 12 vs. Cleveland Browns
Samaje Perine had a nice PPR day in Week 11 when he caught all seven of his targets for 60 receiving yards. The targets and catches were season-highs for Perine, but he still only saw one carry in the running game as Javonte Williams continues to dominate touches out of the Denver backfield. Perine will benefit from negative game scripts, but the Broncos are 2.5 point favorites this week playing at home. Without any guarantee that he will replicate his target volume from last week against the Browns, Perine is not a good fantasy option unless you are truly desperate in a deep league.
