Dameon Pierce News

  • 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.

  • Dameon Pierce sits out · Aug 20, 2022

    The Texans did not play running back Dameon Pierce in their second preseason game.

    No injury was reported. Meanwhile, Rex Burkhead, Marlon Mack and Royce Freeman all got reps in the game, leading many to speculate Pierce has already secured the job as Houston's lead back. While there's a long way to go before the season opener, this could be a fairly significant early development in dynasty leagues. Pierce is currently our 14th ranked rookie and that's starting to look like a bit of a bargain, despite the ineptitude of Houston's offense.

  • Dameon Pierce could be starting · Aug 16, 2022

    Texans running back Dameon Pierce continues to excel and could be starting early in the regular season

    With only Rex Burkhead and Marlon Mack ahead of him on the depth chart, there's little reason to not project Pierce as the starter in short order. By all accounts, the rookie has had a fantastic few months and looked the part in his first preseason action. A popular second-round rookie selection, Pierce, DLF's RB38, is looking to be a fine upside-potential back for dynasty coaches looking for a well-valued rookie asset.

  • Dameon Pierce totals 49 yards · Aug 14, 2022

    Texans rookie running back Dameon Pierce rushed for 49 yards on five carries

    Pierce looked the part of no less than an early-down starter on his five totes, one of them being a 20-yard scamper. The running back position is somewhat of a wide open proposition for the Texans in 2022 with Marlon Mack and veteran Rex Burkhead expected to lead the way. Given Pierces profile and youth, however, it will be no surprise to see the rookie garner starter's touches by mid-season. Pierce is listed as DLF's rookie RB5 and our RB39 overall.

  • Dameon Pierce could be lead back · Jun 21, 2022

    Texans rookie running back Dameon Pierce could be the lead back by the end of the season.

    It's not a stretch given aging Rex Burkhead sits atop the depth chart and new addition Marlon Mack has yet to establish he can remain off the trainer's table. Pierce has an NFL build, was underused in his time at Florida and was widely considered a high-upside player at the position for the next level. Given that the team is in full-rebuild, look for the coaching staff to give Pierce every chance to prove he can be a mainstay at the top of the rotation in time. Pierce, DLF's RB39 and rookie RB5, has been a popular target early in the second round of dynasty rookie drafts.
