It's great news for Williams owners, as he made amazing progress in the offseason to be ready for Week 1. Williams finished with a team-high 13 carries for 52 yards and he added four catches on six targets but for just five yards. Perine was still a factor, leading the team in receiving yards with an unimpressive 37 yards on four targets. But Williams was the leader in the backfield and the hope for owners is he continues to trend up. Week 1 was certainly a good sign bigger workloads could be in the future.
DEN RB Samaje Perine - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 3 at Miami Dolphins
Samaje Perine has seen 16 touches through two weeks, which is well behind Javonte Williams' 31 opportunities. Perine typically relies on receptions for most of his production and he has caught seven balls in his first two games this year, but those have only gone for 57 total receiving yards and no touchdowns. Perine is only seeing a couple carries a game to go along with his expected passing game role, which is a tough workload to turn into a fantasy-viable performance in this Denver offense. Perine could see some extra opportunity due to game script this week with the Broncos traveling to Miami to face a strong Dolphins team, but he still is nothing more than a low-end flex play in full PPR leagues.
