Dameon Pierce fever is at an all-time high I'm honestly fascinated by the hype of Dameon Pierce at this point. In the span of a month, he went from moderately known rookie and borderline draftable dynasty asset to rumblings of playing time and sleeper pick, to RB1 for the Texans/first round dynasty draft pick/4th round redraft draft pick. Ascension for the ages in Houston. The question now is, is the hype really worth it? Does Pierce profile as a surefire running back contributor for years to come? Or is he a guy who is getting some playing time this year because the Texans are awful and will fade in value from this point forward?
