Texans rookie RB Dameon Pierce has looked great early, but Tony Pollard's rushing and receiving ability in Dallas has sent his fantasy value soaring.
Pierce was able to get into fifth place for a very specific #Texans franchise record list after a horrible performance against the #Commanders
Texans RB Dameon Pierce managed a paltry 17 total yards in Sunday's loss to the Commanders. He carried 10 times for just 8 yards, adding 9 more on 2 receptions. He did dominate backfield playing time, at least. Rex Burkhead and Dare Ogunbowale combined for just 13 snaps, 1 target and 0 carries. Friendlier rushing matchups lie ahead, with the Dolphins, Browns, Cowboys and Chiefs the next 4 weeks. The top-rated Titans run defense looms as a potential problem in Week 16, though.
The Washington rookie employed a WWE move to bring down the Houston ballcarrier.
Surprisingly waived by Arizona on Monday A new back in Houston: Texans claimed former Cardinals RB Eno Benjamin on waivers. (ESPN - Adam Schefter) FF Today'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.
