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.

Injury Dameon Pierce lands on Injured Reserve
Out for the season
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Dec 17, 4:55 pm

Houston Texans

FFToday's Take: Pierce suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 14 and now will miss the remainder of the season. Rex Burkhead and Dare Ogunbowale will be handling running back duties against the Chiefs in Week 15 while Royce Freeman has been added to the roster. Burkhead and Ogunbowale are PPR league dart-throws on Sunday.


Injury Dameon Pierce uncertain for Week 15
Ankle injury sidelined him for most of fourth quarter in Week 14

Houston Texans
Smith: RB Dameon Pierce has an ankle injury that kept him from finishing game. It's concerning. It would take an awful lot to keep him from playing. (Drew Dougherty on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: For now, fantasy managers should prepare to be without Pierce or at least expect a scaled-back workload. In Pierce's absence on Sunday, Dare Ogunbowale, Eno Benjamin and Rex Burkhead all saw work, which would likely be the plan of attack against the Chiefs next weekend. Short of complete desperation, starting any of those three players is not advisable if Pierce doesn't play versus the Chiefs.


Eno Benjamin joins Houston's backfield
Surprisingly waived by Arizona on Monday

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.
