2019 Fantasy Outlook
Up to this point, Perriman's career has been largely defined by both injury and underachievement. However, the raw physical talent embodied by Perriman's 6-2, 215-pound frame and 4.3 speed finally began to translate consistently on the field during the latter half of the 2018 campaign in Cleveland. Perriman finished the season with 16 receptions for 340 yards (21.3 YPC) and two touchdowns, with a quarter of those grabs checking in above 20 yards. With DeSean Jackson now in Philadelphia, the role of downfield threat in an offense that heavily relies on one is Perriman's for the taking, which could result in the fourth-year receiver finally paying some handsome fantasy dividends. Jackson logged 74 targets over 12 games last season under the prior offensive system, and Perriman, who's topped out at 66 targets thus far in his career, could potentially be in for a similar workload if he masters coach Bruce Arians' system and develops the necessary rapport with quarterback Jameis Winston.

Perriman (shoulder) was a full participant in mandatory minicamp, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Perriman dealt with a shoulder injury toward the end of OTAs, but it sounds like he was able to bounce back rather quickly before the team leaves for summer break. Currently a favorite for the No. 3 role behind Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, Perriman is an interesting post-hype sleeper in what could be an aggressive Bruce Arians offense. After all, there are 74 targets left over from the departure of DeSean Jackson and the Bucs don't have many other options with Perriman's athletic profile.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2016
2015
Perriman's first three years in the league have been as underwhelming as any first-round receiver in recent memory. Even giving him a pass for a season-ending knee injury that wiped out his rookie season, Perriman has a grand total of 43 catches on 101 targets (42.5 percent catch rate) for 576 yards (5.7 YPT) in 27 career games. The Ravens declined his fifth-year option and there's a chance Perriman isn't even on the team by the end of the first week of training camp due to potential cap savings. If Perriman does crack the 53-man roster, there's no guarantee he's more than the fifth option at receiver. Considering that WR3 in Baltimore's offense last season saw just seven percent of the targets, that doesn't bode well for Perriman making much of an impact with whatever reps he does get. Perriman could one day tap into his first-round potential, but it's highly unlikely that it will happen in Baltimore.

Perriman could one day tap into his first-round potential, but it's highly unlikely that it will happen in Baltimore.
After missing his entire rookie year, Perriman was eased into the offense slowly in Year 2, only eclipsing 40 offensive snaps twice. That should change dramatically this season. The Ravens did sign Jeremy Maclin in June, but the team lost Steve Smith, Kamar AIken and TE Dennis Pitta earlier in the offseason. Perriman, Maclin and Mike Wallace should all be heavily involved, as Baltimore ranked near the top of the league in pass attempts the past two years and doesn't have much pass-catching depth beyond that trio and RB Danny Woodhead. At 6-2, 215 with blazing 4.24 40 speed, Perriman is an athletic freak - virtually no one with that weight and catch radius runs a sub 4.3 40. Last year, Perriman averaged 15.1 YPC on 66 targets, but he caught only half the passes thrown his way and needs to work on his route running. Perriman's path to a breakout may have partially been obstructed by the addition of Maclin, but it's still there for the taking if the third-year wideout displays major improvement. Perriman's case took a hit when he suffered a hamstring injury in early August and subsequently missed the rest of training camp. This marks the third time in three years that he's essentially missed all of training camp, so while the Ravens still hope to have him back by Week 1 as their No. 3 receiver, Perriman probably missed out on his chance to push Maclin and Wallace for significant playing time in two-wide formations.
A seemingly minor knee injury early in training camp wound up costing Perriman his rookie season. It turns out he partially tore his PCL, and he then partially tore the ACL in his other knee in June. Perriman did make it back for Baltimore's final preseason contest, setting him up to make his NFL regular-season debut in Week 1. Assuming that's the case, last year's 26th overall pick is one of the fastest players in the league, timed between 4.22 and 4.27 in the 40 during his UCF Pro Day. Moreover, for someone that fast, Perriman is unusually big - at 6-2, 212 he dwarfs the DeSean Jacksons and T.Y. Hiltons of the league. Perriman isn't especially polished for a first-round pick, and he'll have competition for targets in Steve Smith, Kamar Aiken and fellow burner Mike Wallace. But a big role is there for the taking, and Joe Flacco certainly has the arm to get him the ball downfield.
Taken with the 26th overall pick, Perriman was expected to compete for a Week 1 starting job in a thin receiving corps, until a knee injury on the first day of training camp kept him out for the entire preseason. He could still earn the starting job down the line, but he's in danger of missing at least the first game or two of the season, leaving Kamar Aiken as the likely starter across from Steve Smith. At 6-2, 212, with blazing speed (timed between 4.22 and 4.27 during his UCF Pro Day), Perriman could eventually take over much of Torrey Smith's deep-threat role but also has enough size to be a red-zone factor.
