Heading into week 17, Dolphins’ QB Ryan Fitzpatrick remains the team’s leading rusher with 228 yards. So, with one game left to be played and Myles Gaskin likely out on Sunday with an ankle injury, the Dolphins needed to sign someone to the 53-man roster.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Dolphins have signed former Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine.
Ian Rapoport believes Perine will be park of the future in the Miami backfield in 2020, which makes sense as the Dolphins don't have a lot of options right now at the position. Dynasty GMs should make note. Perine is a former fourth round pick and was most recently on the Bengals practice squad.
WAS RB Samaje Perine - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at New York Giants
Washington will look to finish the season on a high note, with most starters playing in Week 17, unless injured. Samaje Perine will again be the primary ball-carrier against a Giants defense that is just 29th in aFPA vs. RBs. Despite tweaking his groin last week, Perine still got 16 touches. Consider him a FLEX, at worst, in Week 17.
