Breshad Perriman Fantasy Football News 2020

The Jets added Baylor WR Denzel Mims in the 2nd round of the 2020 NFL Draft. The 6’3, 207-pounder blew up the Combine, clocking a 4.38-second 40 time and registering marks in the 84th percentile or better in the vertical, broad and 3-cone. Mims finished with a 95th percentile SPARQ score. That athleticism shows up on tape. He has explosive acceleration, plus speed and excellent body control to reel in off-target throws. Mims broke out with a 61-1,087-8 line as a 19-year-old sophomore in 2017, took a step back to 55-794-8 in 2018 but rebounded to tally 66 catches, 1,020 yards and 12 TDs last year. The biggest knocks against him are inconsistent hands and a limited route tree. Mims dropped 13% of his catchable targets over the past 2 seasons. And over 46% of his targets and nearly 45% of his yardage last year came on ‘go’ and ‘hitch’ routes, according to Pro Football Focus. “He’s got vertical speed, he does have tracking skills and he understands how to use his size in the red zone,” an anonymous scout told The Athletic’s Bob McGinn. “He’s going to need a lot of work on how to run routes … He’s got inconsistent hands. He’s going to need work on how to get off press.” This is a strong value pick for the Jets, though — and a nice landing spot for Mims. He has a shot to earn a significant 2020 role alongside Jamison Crowder and Breshad Perriman. And Mims could emerge as QB Sam Darnold’s long-term #1 WR.

Former Buccaneers WR Breshad Perriman has agreed to a 1-year deal with the Jets, according to agent Drew Rosenhaus. Perriman will make just $6 million, with incentives that could push it to $8 million -- somewhat limited money for a 26-year-old wideout who finished last season strong. On top of his big numbers as Tampa Bay's top receivers went down, Pro Football Focus' grades say Perriman stepped up his play to near top level. PFF also graded Perriman 32nd among all 215 targeted WRs in 2018, his lone season with Cleveland. Perriman now steps into an offense that just let Robby Anderson walk for Carolina. Anderson drew 96 targets in 2019, second most on the team and 18.4% of the team total. Perriman should be competing for at least a similar role. We'll see whether the Jets add anything else in free agency or the NFL Draft.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin (hamstring) is out again for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson get another game as the top 2 WRs. Both guys are strong target bets with QB Jameis Winston averaging 40.1 passes per game.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin (hamstring) is out for Saturday’s game against the Texans. WRs Mike Evans and Scott Miller were placed on IR this week, leaving Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson as Tampa’s top 2 WRs. TE O.J. Howard should also play a big role in the passing game this weekend.

Bucs WRs Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Scott Miller all missed practice on Tuesday with their hamstring injuries. None of them are likely to play against the Texans on Saturday afternoon. That'll leave Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson as Tampa's top 2 WRs. TE O.J. Howard should also fend for the team lead in targets.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin (hamstring) isn't expected to play against the Texans on Saturday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. With Mike Evans and Scott Miller also likely out with their hamstring injuries, Tampa will be down to Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson atop the WR depth chart. Perriman will be a locked-in fantasy starter (we never thought we'd say that!), while Watson will be a deep-league consideration. TE O.J. Howard will also be a strong Week 16 target bet.

Bucs WR Mike Evans (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Lions. WR Scott Miller (hamstring) practiced all week and is set to return. It’s unclear how WR snaps will be split between Miller, Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson behind #1 Chris Godwin. Perriman is the best fantasy bet of the trio, but consider him just a WR4 flier.

Bucs WR Scott Miller (hamstring) was a full-go in Thursday's practice. That puts him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Lions. The rookie had basically worked himself into an even timeshare with Breshad Perriman for #3 WR duties before going down in Week 12. It's unclear what kind of role Miller will return to after Mike Evans hurt his hamstring and Justin Watson posted a 5-59-1 line last week. Miller and Watson are DFS-only options for Week 15. Perriman remains the best bet to play the 2nd most snaps among Bucs WRs (behind Chris Godwin).

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Bucs WR Mike Evans (hamstring) will miss the final 3 weeks of the season. He can be dropped from redraft rosters. Tampa is down to WRs Breshad Perriman, Justin Watson and Scott Miller (hamstring) behind Chris Godwin. We could see TE O.J. Howard's volume get a boost with Evans out.

Bucs HC Bruce Arians isn't expecting WR Mike Evans (hamstring) to play again this season. "It's not good," Arians said. "I'll be shocked if Mike makes it back before the last week." With Evans exiting late in the 1st quarter of Sunday's win over the Colts, WR Breshad Perriman played 83% of the snaps and saw 5 targets; WR Justin Watson posted a 55% snap rate and 8 targets. Both guys will be intriguing fantasy fliers in a plus Week 15 matchup against the Lions.

Bucs WR Mike Evans' injured hamstring is "not good," HC Bruce Arians said after the win over the Colts. "I'll be shocked if he makes it back before next week," Arians added. WRs Justin Watson and Breshad Perriman combined for 13 targets, 8 catches, 129 yards and 2 scores in Evans' place today. We'll see how the snaps were divvied between them, but both guys could be deeper-league fantasy options vs. the Lions in Week 15.

Bucs WR Mike Evans injured his hamstring on the end of a 61-yard TD in Sunday's game against the Colts and is done for the day. Breshad Perriman figures to slide in as Tampa's #2 WR the rest of the way.

The Browns initially agreed to a 1-year deal with WR Breshad Perriman but let him out after they traded for WR Odell Beckham. The Tampa Tribune reports that Perriman has instead reached a 1-year, $4 million deal with the Bucs. That sends Perriman to an offense that has shed WR DeSean Jackson and WR Adam Humphries over the past few days. There's room for Perriman to gain the WR3 role, but we'll see how things sort out.

Ravens WR Breshad Perriman is a healthy scratch for today's game against the Packers. The former 1st-rounder has been brutally inefficient this year, with a 26% catch rate and 7.7 yards-per-catch average. He's well off the redraft radar and is sinking down the dynasty rankings.

Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game vs. Minnesota. He didn’t practice all week and isn’t a lock to be cleared for Week 8.

Ravens WR Breshad Perriman will miss the rest of Sunday's game against the Bears after suffering a 1st-half concussion. It's the 2nd concussion of his football career, with the 1st coming back at Central Florida in 2013. We'll track his status through the protocol this coming week.

Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (thigh) practiced in full all week and will play against the Bengals on Sunday. He missed all of August with a hamstring injury and can't be trusted in Week 1 fantasy lineups. We'll see what kind of role he plays behind Mike Wallace and Jeremy Maclin.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco (back), RB Danny Woodhead (hamstring) and WR Breshad Perriman (hamstring) all returned to practice on Saturday. It puts them on track to play against the Bengals in Week 1. Flacco, of course, will be under center. Woodhead figures to play a significant pass-catching role. We'll see how much action Perriman gets after missing all of August, but he won't be a fantasy option.

Ravens WR Breshad Perriman has been sidelined since August 1 with a hamstring injury. There's no timetable for his return. It's the latest issue in what's been an injury-ravaged start to Perriman's NFL career. He had a strong spring and, if healthy, still figures to open the season as Baltimore's #3 WR. But he's only a later-round flier in fantasy drafts.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco liked what he saw from WR Breshad Perriman this spring. "You can just see the confidence in his eyes," Flacco said. "That's the first thing. Then when you go out there, it's kind of back to how I felt probably the first couple of practices his rookie year, when he was running by people, and you can tell he had something. He's back at that level, running, and his confidence is at an all-time high. He's out there playing, man. It's exciting to see." HC John Harbaugh and TE Dennis Pitta talked up Perriman in May, and ESPN's Jamison Hensley believes he had the "most impressive offseason" among Ravens WRs. Perriman's 2017 fantasy projection took a hit with the arrival of Jeremy Maclin, but his ADP has also sunk into the 14th round. He's a fine stab at that point.
