Dameon Pierce News
Dameon Pierce suffers sprain · Dec 13, 2022
Rookie running back Dameon Pierce suffered what has been called a "mild" high-ankle sprain in week 14.
Reports are that the injury could keep the standout rookie out of the lineup for up to two weeks. If that is the case, it was indeed a high-ankle variety of sprain. Pierce logged his best effort in four weeks during the team's loss against the Cowboys, producing 78 yards and one touchdown on 22 carries. On the season, Pierce has rushed for 939 yards and four touchdowns across 220 carries along with receptions for 165 yards and another score. It's been a productive year for the fourth-round 2022 selection and just another indication that running backs will continue to be faded by NFL brass on draft day. As long as Pierce's injury doesn't sideline him longer than two weeks, he's a certain bet to eclipse the 1,000-yard plateau. He's listed as DLF's RB16.
Dameon Pierce struggling · Dec 1, 2022
Texans rookie running back Dameon Pierce has struggled of late, producing only 16 yards rushing over his past two games.
It's been a fast decline from his season-high 139-yard performance back in week nine. It's not uncommon for rookies to hit the wall in/around week ten and this certainly seems to be the case with Pierce. Truth be told, the wheels are again off the Texans organization and the team is in the mix for the first-overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. As for Pierce, there's little reason for concern as, by all accounts, he's everything expected for a bell-cow running back and, with prototypical size while still only 22 years-of-age, there's reasons to be very optimistic for years to come. Now found as DLF's RB17, continued lack of production into the end of the 2022 season could set up a buy-low opportunity for enterprising dynasty coaches.
Dameon Pierce productive again · Oct 10, 2022
Texans rookie running back Dameon Pierce produced 99 rushing yards and a touchdown on 26 carries in the team's week-five victory over the Jaguars
Pierce totaled 26 carries, his highest workload as a professional, while also reeling in three receptions. He has also scored three rushing touchdowns in as many weeks. Fair to say the Texans have found their new starting running back and, once again, proves that starters at the position can come from later rounds. Pierce was selected in the fourth-round of the 2022 NFL Rookie Draft. Through five games, the rookie has 412 yards and three touchdowns on 86 carries, good for a 4.8 ypc. average and is firmly in the mix for offensive rookie of the year honors. A popular second round rookie selection in dynasty leagues, Dameon Pierce, DLF's RB35 is clearly on the rise.
Dameon Pierce looks solid · Oct 3, 2022
Dameon Pierce had 131 rushing yards and a touchdown in Houston's loss to the Chargers.
Pierce was the only Houston running back to receive a carry this week and even posted six catches on the day. While he was only able to produce eight receiving yards, his dynasty managers will take it. Pierce has run away with this backfield and should continue to build on this performance. Negative game scripts are going to be a problem, but those who took Pierce in the second round of rookie drafts are getting first round value at the moment.
Dameon Pierce leads the way · Sep 26, 2022
Dameon Pierce carried the ball 20 times for 80 yards in the Week 3 loss to the Bears.
Pierce appears to have taken full control of the backfield as veteran Rex Burkhead carried the ball just three times. The rookie from Florida saw two targets in the passing game as well, catching them both for another 21 yards, putting him over the century mark on the day. The Texans offense lacks a big passing attack to open things up but the volume alone makes him at least an RB2 on a weekly basis. Pierce comes in as our 14th ranked rookie and is looking like a relative bargain in rookie drafts this off-season.
Dameon Pierce carries the mail · Sep 19, 2022
Texans rookie running back Dameon Pierce had 69 rushing yards in Houston's week two loss against the Denver Broncos.
Pierce received 15 of the Texans' 18 total carries, a far cry from last week when he took a backseat to Rex Burkhead. While his yardage totals leave a lot to be desired (he added one catch for eight yards), the usage rate is enough to solidify his ranking as the 14th overall rookie. There is some PPR concern here as he doesn't really carry much pass-catching value, but this was clearly a step in the right direction for Pierce, who remains a strong hold in dynasty leagues.
Dameon Pierce quiet in opener · Sep 11, 2022
Texans rookie Dameon Pierce posted 33 rushing yards, one catch, and six receiving yards in his NFL debut.
It was a disappointing day for Pierce, who had been riding a pretty strong hype train the past two weeks. With a lack of effectiveness in the passing game, Pierce needs strong rushing numbers to be effective in PPR leagues and today was simply not his day. Pierce was out-carried 14-11 by Rex Burkhead, making his future value even murkier. Still, we've seen enough from Pierce to be confident in his ability and he could make for a quick buy low in dynasty leagues.
Dameon Pierce the RB1 · Sep 6, 2022
Rookie running back Dameon Pierce is listed as the Texans RB1 on their most recent depth chart
There's no surprise here and Pierce is looking like a huge second round steal from this year's dynasty rookie drafts. The team obviously feels very comfortable with the rookie on top as they released Marlon Mack, not only once, but twice, leaving Pierce and veteran Rex Burkhead as the top two runners. The rookie wall is a real thing and there's every chance the Texans lean equally on the two runners so as not to exhaust Pierce as the team approaches week ten, but in any case, Pierce is the back to own and his dynasty ranking is increasing quickly. He's currently listed as DLF's RB36 and is on the rise.
Dameon Pierce on top · Aug 30, 2022
Texans running back Dameon Pierce sits clearly atop the depth chart following the team's release of Marlon Mack
There was still some question whether Mack would be the favored option though Pierce, a rookie, had an outstanding camp and seemed to be the RB1. This all but confirms the fact that the Texans will roll with Pierce as the featured runner with Rex Burkhead mixing in as needed. Pierce is still ranked as DLF's RB36 and makes for an intriguing buy-low candidate.
Dameon Pierce scores · Aug 26, 2022
Texans rookie running back Dameon Pierce scored a touchdown and looks like the starter after another fine performance during the teams' final preseason game.
Pierce has been one of the star rookies during the preseason and is already the presumed starter on a team needing offensive playmakers. On the night, he produced 37 yards and a touchdown on six carries, showing a blend of power, agility and downhill ability. It's only a formality as we wait for the team's official depth chart but Pierce, DLF's RB36, is set to see a rise in his dynasty ranking in short order as the regular season approaches.
