Dameon Pierce Earns 25 Touches Sunday

Sunday, October 1, 4:27 PM

Houston Texans running back Dameon Pierce rushed 24 times for 81 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 4. He also caught a 27-yard pass. After a slow start to the season, Pierce has come on quite strong. His hot stretch has occurred simultaneously with a two-game winning streak in which the Texans have scored 67 points. As Houston continues to play well, Pierce should be viewed as a steady RB2 option. The Texans face the Falcons next week.

De'Von Achane Soars Again On Sunday

Monday, October 2, 1:59 AM

Miami Dolphins running back De'Von Achane took eight carries for 101 yards and two touchdowns with three catches for 19 yards in Week 4's 48-20 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Achane picked up right where he left off from last Sunday's outburst, hitting paydirt on his first two touches with both seeing Tyreek Hill act as a decoy. But as both offenses calmed after scoring five touchdowns on the game's first five drives, so did Achane's usage. The speedy rookie was still able to show off his wheels on a neat 55-yard run in the face of the rout. Achane out-touched Raheem Mostert (who fumbled twice Sunday) 11-10, which is a promising sight for those who broke the FAAB bank to claim him off waiver wires. It remains to be seen what kind of role Miami has in store for Jeff Wilson Jr. (ribs), who might be on the cusp of a return. Achane's weekly home-run potential should keep him in RB2 territory, regardless.
