2024 RTSports Outlook

Perine had just a carry all season until the last game for the Chiefs, getting a start with the team resting starters for the playoffs. Perine played pretty well, finishing with 109 total yards on 24 touches. Perine has played 17 games in three seasons and never topped 300 yards in a season. He is trying to find his footing in the NFL but nothing is certain. He will look to earn a depth role again this coming year. Perine is a good pass catcher with three-down back potential. He doesn't really wow in any area, though. He does everything pretty well but his lack of standing out in any one area might hold him back from being anything more than a deep backup once again.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Perine seems a long shot to find the field often. He might get around 200 total yards with a score or two.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed free agent running back La'Mical Perine to a one-year deal, they announced on Thursday. Perine had been cut loose by the Kansas City Chiefs roughly one week earlier. A fourth-round pick in 2020, Perine has never been a major contributor out of the backfield. His best season came as a rookie with the New York Jets when he totaled 295 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns. He has just 33 touches over seven games since then, though he did log one start with the Chiefs in 2023 (21 rushes, 76 rushing yards, three receptions, 33 receiving yards). Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren have the top two running back spots occupied in Pittsburgh, so Perine is presumably competing for the third-string role with versatile veteran Cordarrelle Patterson, former Harvard standout Aaron Shampklin, and undrafted rookie Daijun Edwards. He remains off the fantasy radar.

The Kansas City Chiefs released running back La'Mical Perine on Friday. Perine was taken by the New York Jets in the fourth round (120th overall) in 2020 out of Florida. He spent his first three years with the Jets and only played in 14 games (zero starts) over two years, racking up 263 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 72 rushing attempts, adding 11 receptions for 63 yards. The 26-year-old joined the Chiefs for the 2023 campaign and had 22 carries for 77 yards and added three catches for 33 yards in just three regular-season games (one start). He's now on the open market and will be looking to join another squad for training camp this summer. No matter where Perine latches on, he'll be well off the fantasy radar and will just be trying to make the team out of training camp and the preseason.

Kansas City Chiefs running back La'Mical Perine shouldered a bell-cow role in Week 18's regular-season finale as the team topped the Los Angeles Chargers 13-12, carrying the ball 21 times for 76 yards with three catches for 33 yards. Isiah Pacheco (quadriceps/shoulder) was inactive for Sunday's date, as the Chiefs rested their top playmakers ahead of the postseason, and Perine handled the interim lead-back role fairly well. Clyde Edwards-Helaire made a brief cameo early in the game for three touches before joining the key producers on the sidelines. The 25-year-old former New York Jet is settled in as K.C.'s No. 3 tailback with Jerick McKinnon (groin) on injured reserve but would likely only be called upon during the playoffs in the event of an injury to Pacheco or Edwards-Helaire, so he won't be fantasy relevant on Saturday versus the Miami Dolphins for Wild Card play.
