Dameon Pierce Week 4 Outlook - Chargers at Texans

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Thu, Sep 29th 2022, 1:05pm EDT

The defensive line that ranks 32nd in yards allowed before contact belongs to the Los Angeles Chargers. As a result, they allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing running backs. So prepare your body and mind for Pierce RB1 season to roll on. He out-carried Rex Burkhead 20-3 in Week 3 en route to a 73% opportunity share in the Texans' backfield. In games where Houston can be competitive or face weak run defenses, Pierce can be a big producer on early downs as a rusher. Just note that Burkhead still has the receiving role (5 targets, 45% route participation in Week 3) making Pierce game-flow dependent (2 targets, 27% route participation in Week 3).
