Was talking to a guy at lunch who is a big fantasy football guy and he claimed Pierce has moved way up most guy’s draft boards because they see him as a three down back. Any of you other fantasy guys seeing this?

First off, I think he may be pulled on passing downs. Secondly, his productivity will likely be hurt by being on a bad team, as I already established. I like him, but only to a point.

Really you gave me a looney for this. What a tool.
I was going to let this go, but since you call me out I'm going to blast you out of the water. You've lost your mind lately for reasons I don't understand. Perhaps it's drugs, I don't know. I don't remember you being so strange.

We were talking about Pierce's NFL career, not his health later in life. Nobody gives a **** what Pierce is going to be feeling in his extremities as an old man, it's a sports board and we talk about sports. I think he knows the risks of football. OF COURSE not playing will make him healthier later in life, did you really just figure this out? I take it your advice is for him to retire now? Good Christ.

We were trying to have a sports discussion and you are telling us that it's better he doesn't play at all, like this is a message board for Canasta players or something. You make no sense, you need help.

Now call me another name so I can just flush you and be done with it.

Or, just a different perspective, the bad offense enables him to get a ton of carries so he can get plenty of yards/TD’s
Truth, you aren't getting a ton of carries when you're down 20. The Texans are going to be playing from behind a lot. It's hard being a RB on a bad team.

It's the NFL. no one gets a ton of carries outside of Derrick Henry. The old school run game does not exist.

Then he's the checkdown guy. Always find alternative reasons:thug:
Unfortunately, it looks like Rex Burkhead is going to be the primary receiving back. Perhaps if Pierce becomes a killer pass blocker he can become a trusted pass-catcher. Plus, Burkhead gets hurt every five minutes or so.
