Cedric Peerman surprising his team with performance: Fantasy implications

Andy Lyons

Cedric Peerman has put the Bengals on notice with a string of impressive games. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Cincinnati Bengals have been surprised and impressed at RB Cedric Peerman's play recently. According to the official team website, OC Jay Gruden admits to be taken by surprise with Peerman: "We had a feeling he would be pretty good but you don't know until you give him those reps."

Peerman was mostly a special teamer, but took over as the new change-of-pace back when Bernard Scott went down with an injury.

Fantasy Impact: Over the past three games, Peerman has totaled 197 yards on just 22 carries, for a nifty 8.9 YPC. He has certainly proved that he deserves a bigger workload than backing up the plodding BenJarvus Green-Ellis.

Peerman isn't much of a fantasy option at this point in the season, but keeper/dynasty owners may want to watch him closely.
