2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
Burkhead took over as the Texans starting running back late in the 2021 season, flashing with a 149-yard, two-touchdown game against the Chargers in Week 16. But he averaged less 3.0 yards per carry in five other contests where he had double digit carries. His 2021 season average of 3.5 yards per tote was a half yard less than his career average. Though he's a tough and versatile competitor, at 32 he's probably not much of a fantasy factor unless Marlon Mack and Dameon Pierce both go down with injuries.

News From The Past 90 Days
Dameon Pierce likely to start early in season
Expected to pass up Marlon Mack and Rex Burkhead quickly
By: Doug Orth | Tue Aug 16, 11:55 pm

Houston Texans
By the first month of the season, Dameon Pierce could take over the starting job. Former Colt Marlon Mack has the most production of the group, which also features Rex Burkhead, but Pierce has the most explosiveness, and it's only a matter of time until Texans offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton makes Pierce the lead back. (ESPN.com - DJ Bien-Aime)

FFToday's Take: Pierce's usage at the University of Florida was befuddling to say the least, as he never carried the ball more than 106 times. He somehow only amassed 100 rushing attempts in 2021 despite scoring 13 times. It would appear Houston believes he can handle a heavy workload; the major concern with him is that he may be too physical to hold up week after week. Regardless, the Texans desperately need a back like him that can run through contact. He makes sense as a strong RB4 option with RB3 upside on draft day.
