Samaje Perine placed on Bengals’ reserve/COVID list

The Cincinnati Bengals have placed running back Samaje Perine on their reserve/COVID list (per Field Yates)

Fantasy Impact: Perine played well against the Packers in Week 5, handling the bulk of the work on both the ground and through the air. With Joe Mixon still recovering from an ankle injury, if Perine were to miss Week 6 vs the Lions, rookie back Chris Evans could be in for a large workload. Evans is certainly worth monitoring given Perine’s availability this weekend.
