Samaje Perine Can Change Your Fantasy Football Season

Washington running back Chris Thompson was carted off the football field on Sunday after suffering a right leg injury against the New Orleans Saints. The team later revealed that he suffered a broken right fibula that will require season-ending surgery. Thompson was the RB11 in PPR formats heading into Week 11. Formerly disappointing rookie Samaje Perine now has a chance to fulfill his potential with Thompson and Rob Kelley out of the equation in Washington.

Washington’s RB BY COMMITTEE

Here is a line of sight of the statistical production of the Washington RBs. Wash RBs Wk11 Thompson was the most productive RB as highlighted by his combined fantasy volume. He tallied 112.1 total expected points (EP) before his injury. He was also the most efficient with positive rushing and receiving fantasy points over expectation (FPOE). He was outperforming his volume by a wide margin. Kelley and Perine had a negative rushing FPOE and were minimally involved in the passing game.
