With Cincinnati Bengals running again Joe Mixon day-to-day thanks to an ankle ruin (which ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported is a low-grade ankle sprain), delusion managers with Mixon on their rosters could seemingly well additionally honest now be scrambling to search out a alternative on waivers.
So, who are your simplest choices after Week 4’s video games?
Samaje Perine is the obtrusive want since he is Mixon’s backup. Whether Perine will supply a lot charge in the position is but another predict fully.
Since rushing for 603 yards and a touchdown as a rookie for the Washington Soccer Crew in 2017, Perine rushed for most efficient 349 yards and three rankings in total between the 2018-20 seasons. That infrequently suggests he is ready for a bell-cow position.
If Perine gets enough touches in Mixon’s absence, he is on the total a tight stopgap. Nonetheless Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow could seemingly well correct throw the ball extra with Mixon out, too.
Perine is value rostering while you choose up gotten Mixon. Buf while you wish extra upside, scamper after Cordarrelle Patterson, who correct exploded for 34.6 delusion parts in parts-per-reception leagues after rushing six times for 34 yards and catching 5 passes for 82 yards and three rankings.
Patterson obtained’t supply that stage of production per week, and he is about to be the most sought-after player on waivers in leagues where he wasn’t already rostered. Nonetheless his immense game also wasn’t a fluke. Genuinely, it used to be his third straight week with double-digit delusion parts.
Baltimore Ravens running again Latavius Murray is but another solution to connect in ideas. He ran 18 times for 59 yards and a touchdown in opposition to the Denver Broncos on Sunday, whereas all other Ravens running backs had most efficient 5 carries.
The Ravens did elevate Le’Veon Bell to their active roster for the first time Sunday, and they’ve Devonta Freeman and Ty’Son Williams in a muddled backfield as successfully. Nonetheless if Murray maintains his grip on the starting job, the Ravens’ dynamic rushing attack would give him decent upside.
That it’s possible you will most likely well seemingly additionally honest aloof also show screen the discipline in Chicago, where Damien Williams looks space to be the starter if David Sir Bernard Law is forced to miss time with the knee ruin he suffered Sunday in opposition to the Detroit Lions:

#Bears RB Damien Williams suffered a thigh bruise on Sunday and want to be OK, supply acknowledged. He’d be the starter in the event David Sir Bernard Law misses a few weeks alongside with his knee ruin. Sir Bernard Law could seemingly well additionally honest omit some time, even though the belief is the knee isn’t severe.
Ultimately, that it’s possible you will most likely flip to alternate-of-glide backs love Philadelphia’s Kenneth Gainwell, Washington’s J.D. McKissic or Tennessee’s Jeremy McNichols. Gainwell could seemingly well want the most long-term upside of the trio, as the rookie has persisted to play a extra famed position in Philadelphia’s offense per week and had most efficient one fewer touch than Miles Sanders on Sunday.
Gainwell has now outscored Sanders in two of the team’s four video games this season. He’s an in particular fascinating option in PPR formats.
