Week 2 at Denver Broncos
Dameon Pierce received a lot of hype heading into the season. So, naturally, Rex Burkhead saw 30 more snaps on offense than Pierce and was much more involved in the passing game. Burkhead saw seven targets, Pierce had one. All that being said, the Houston offense still looks shaky as a whole and they go on the road against a good Denver team after blowing a fourth-quarter lead and ending up in a tie. Neither back feels like a strong option right now, but in half-PPR, if Houston is going to keep Burkhead out there in the passing game, he may have the slight edge.
