Lions Release C.J. Anderson, Claim Paul Perkins

The Detroit Lions released running back C.J. Anderson on Tuesday and claimed running back Paul Perkins off waivers from the Giants in a corresponding move. If anything, this is good news for Kerryon Johnson, who lost five carries to Anderson, five to rookie Ty Johnson and two to J.D. McKissic in the Week 2 win over the Chargers. It doesn't mean that Detroit won't still include Ty Johnson and McKissic moving forward, though, and Kerryon Johnson will be more of a low-end RB2 on Sunday against a tough Eagles defensive front. Ty Johnson's outlook in dynasty and deep leagues just got a lot better as the No. 2.

Paul Perkins Sees Plenty Of Meaningful Reps

New York Giants running back Paul Perkins, not Wayne Gallman, was the first running back up during spring practices when Saquon Barkley was on the sidelines. The team is trying to limit Barkley's workload in the offseason, and it appears Perkins is the biggest beneficiary. He'll need to continue his good play into training camp and the preseason, and he could be the second back on the depth chart. Gallman reportedly had trouble with dropped passes, so the door is wide open for Perkins.

Paul Perkins Getting Second-Team Reps

The New York Giants know who their starting running back is because Saquon Barkley is on the team's roster, but there appears to be a surprise candidate for the number-two job appearing during offseason workouts as Paul Perkins has been getting second-team reps. Perkins missed all of last season and has struggled in the instances where the Giants have given him snaps, so him supplanting Wayne Gallman as the first back off the bench would be an unexpected development. As long as Barkley is healthy, Perkins won't see the field enough to be fantasy relevant, though, and his past performance doesn't indicate that he's worth stashing as a handcuff option.
