Rachaad White Goes Over 50 Yards

Sunday, October 1, 7:34 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White continued to be the workhorse back for this offense on Sunday. The second-year back rushed 15 times for 56 yards during the Week 4 win over the New Orleans Saints. He wasn't great on the ground, but also added three receptions for 22 additional yards through the air. It appears the Bucs are going to continue pounding the ball with White going forward. The expectation is that he'll continue to provide low-end RB2 value.

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.
