2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
Taken with the 107th pick in the draft, Pierce was never a starter in college, though he flashed when given the chance in his final season in 2021, averaging 5.7 yards per carry and cashing in for 13 touchdowns. He's a strong, physical runner who can run through tackles, and he holds up well in pass protection, which could ultimately be the thing that gets him on the field and keeps him there on 3rd down.

It won't happen early in the season, but he has a chance to develop into the RB1 in Houston by the end of the season. Stash him on your bench or on your watch list.

News From The Past 90 Days
Eno Benjamin joins Houston's backfield
Surprisingly waived by Arizona on Monday

Houston Texans
A new back in Houston: Texans claimed former Cardinals’ RB Eno Benjamin on waivers. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)

FFToday's Take: The details surrounding Benjamin's departure from Arizona remain a mystery, but the Cardinals' loss should end up being the Texans' gain. While Benjamin is not a threat to split work with Dameon Pierce, it is entirely possible he steals a handful of touches per week - most likely in the passing game - once he is comfortable in the offense. If that ends up being the case, Pierce could struggle to maintain the RB1 level of production he has provided his fantasy managers recently.


Dameon Pierce to get more work going forward?
Rookie logged only 29 percent of snaps in Week 1
By: Doug Orth | Tue Sep 13, 11:50 pm

Houston Texans
Dameon Pierce wound up playing just 29% of the 70 offensive snaps, 20 plays overall, during a 20-20 tie to open the season against the Indianapolis Colts at NRG Stadium. He rushed for just 33 yards on 11 carries with one catch for six yards. “Some of the other things we did in the game, looking on the offensive side of the football, I understand how many plays Dameon Pierce played. The plan of course was for him to get more. You get into the game and situations make you go a little bit different direction. You learn from those mistakes like that, mistakes of those situations that you look at the day after," HC Lovie Smith said. (Click2Houston.com - Aaron Wilson)

FFToday's Take: Houston did not trail after about the midpoint of the second quarter, so Smith's assertion that situations played a role in Pierce's lack of work is ridiculous. Expect the Texans to overcompensate over the next week or two, but Week 1 is unlikely to be the only time they forget about Pierce. Until further notice, the rookie will remain a low-end RB2 at best and better suited as a flex option.
