Dameon Pierce Week 3 Outlook - Texans at Jaguars

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Thu, Sep 21st 2023, 10:45am EDT

Pierce has not been the workhorse that I hoped for entering the season. He's averaged only 46% of the snaps, 15 touches, and 41 total yards. He's losing routes and snaps to Devon Singletary and Mike Boone weekly. He's not breaking tackles at the same rate as last season, but I have to mention that his offensive line isn't helping him out. Among 48 qualifying running backs, Pierce ranks 27th in missed tackles forced per attempt and 26th in yards after contact per attempt. This is behind an offensive line that has managed the fifth-lowest yards before contact. Pierce's prospects in Week 3 look bleak. He faces a Jacksonville run defense with the second-best stuff rate, missed tackles allowed per attempt, and yards after contact per attempt. Houston will have to move the ball through the air this week. Week 3 Positional Value: RB3
