News: 5 days agoPerriman has reverted back to the Bucs' practice squad, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.
Spin: Perriman was elevated to the team's depth chart prior to Monday's 30-10 victory over the Giants. He was needed for depth at receiver with Antonio Brown (ankle) sidelined. The veteran ultimately recorded two receptions for 19 yards and one rush for negative three.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: After spending 2020 with the Jets, Perriman signed with the Lions, let go at final cuts and then signed with the Bears. The 27-year-old has occasionally shown flashes of the talent that led to him being selected in the first round of the 2015 draft, but he's yet to post a top-50 fantasy campaign and hasn't appeared in a full 16-game season since 2016. He was limited to a 30-505-3 receiving line in New York last season, though a WR-high 30% of balls thrown his way were off target. Jets QBs were partially to blame, but so was Perriman's role, as the speedy vertical threat has finished No. 1 at WR in average depth of route each of the past two seasons. Perriman has a shot at No. 3 gig in Chicago, but his resume suggests consistent production is unlikely.
