Dameon Pierce Hard To Trust In Week 16

Saturday, December 23, 2:18 PM

Houston Texans running back Dameon Pierce should not be started in any format in Week 16 against the Cleveland Browns. Pierce is coming off the lowest usage game of his career, playing just four snaps. Last week, the second-year back totaled just one carry for three yards. The Texans' running back has found himself falling on the depth chart with Devin Singletary and Dare Ogunbowale playing more snaps than him in both of the past two games. Pierce can not be trusted in Week 16.

Chase Brown News

Chase Brown Logs Career-High 11 Carries On Sunday

Sunday, January 7, 9:26 PM

Cincinnati Bengals running back Chase Brown had 43 yards off 11 carries in Sunday's win over the Browns. He added one catch for 10 yards. The Bengals were eliminated from playoff contention after the Week 17 loss to the Chiefs. However, Cincinnati wanted to end the year with a winning record. Brown's 11 attempts were the most of his career. Although he couldn't find the end zone for the second time this season, he still had a decent year as Joe Mixon's backup. At any rate, the 23-year-old should at least remain the No. 2 running back on the depth chart, so he'll draw interest from fantasy managers during drafts ahead of Week 1 for insurance purposes. Of course, the Bengals should strongly consider keeping Joe Mixon on the roster, even more so since he had 12 touchdowns this season. Yet, Brown's outlook could improve even more if he finds himself atop the depth chart heading into the 2024-25 campaign.
