Javonte Williams Gains 58 Yards On 14 Touches

Monday, September 18, 12:20 AM

Denver Broncos running back Javonte Williams didn't do anything overly impressive in the 35-33 loss to the visiting Washington Commander in Week 2 on Sunday in Denver, but he did have 10 more carries than backup Samaje Perine and rookie Jaleel McLaughlin combined. Williams finished with 12 carries for 44 yards (3.7 yards per carry) and caught two of his three targets for an additional 14 yards through the air. Fantasy managers didn't really have much to show for the 23-year-old, but he's also being eased into the offense coming off last year's ACL and LCL tears and was facing a tough defensive line. Williams remains more of an RB3/flex for now, but he should have more fantasy upside as the season progresses and he starts to see even more work as Denver's bell-cow back.

Dameon Pierce Held To 35 Total Yards

Monday, September 18, 1:17 AM

Houston Texans running back Dameon Pierce was held to just 35 total yards in the team's 31-20 loss against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 2. Pierce ran the ball 15 times for only 31 yards while also catching two passes for four yards through the air. The second-year back has struggled to get going on the ground this season and finds himself in a running back by committee in Houston. He hasn't totaled over 40 rush yards in a game and hasn't played more than 50% of the team's offensive snaps in either game. Pierce will look to bounce back in Week 3 on the road against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
