What is Dameon Pierce’s Dynasty Outlook in 2023 and Beyond?

Dameon Pierce had the fantasy world buzzing coming into the 2022-2023 NFL season. The rookie out of Florida was somewhat undervalued in terms of the NFL draft but many in the fantasy world saw his potential. He started rising steadily up mock drafts in early August and was a rookie preseason standout. His pre-draft ranking was #19 RB per FantasyPros ECR and he ended up totaling 151.4 FP in Half PPR leagues. Ultimately a late season ankle injury cut his season short but there was still plenty of highlights in the rookie’s first year. Let’s take a closer look at what to do with Dameon Pierce dynasty shares going forward.

2022

Dameon Pierce started his 2022 campaign slowly as he adjusted to the pro game. His first two games were quiet and he totaled 4.4 and 8.2 FP with zero touchdowns. In Week 3 things started to click for Pierce as he racked up 17.1 FP in a loss against the Chicago Bears. The following week against the Chargers was when Pierce really started to turn heads. He had his season high in FP with 22.9 as he rumbled for 131 yards and a touchdown. We always knew pierce had breakaway speed and it was on full display as he burst through for a 75 yard touchdown.

Unfortunately the Chargers game was the peak for Pierce in his 2022 campaign as he did not break 20 FP the rest of the way. His season was ultimately cut short due to his injury but he showed plenty of promise along the way. Pierce displayed toughness in his running style as he was 4th in the league breaking tackles with 27. This trait along with his speed make him a dangerous weapon moving forward.

2023

Coming into the 2023-2024 season there are still a bunch of unknowns for Pierce. A new coaching staff in Houston dampers some of the buzz that he racked up throughout the year. We just don’t know yet if the new coaching staff will A.) keep using him as the bellcow or B.) try to trade him for a RB that better fits their offensive style. If I’m the Texans I no doubt keep him as my #1 RB.

Dameon Pierce’s Dynasty Value

Where do I rank Dameon Pierce dynasty value going forward? Well I still have him as a top 20 RB on my board. The injury to end the year was somewhat concerning but he was a workforce for the Texans. I expect this new coaching regime will use Pierce more in the passing game to get him out in space and utilize his explosiveness. Going into next year he is a BUY for me.
