Devin Singletary leads the Texans in rushing yards
Singletary played the majority of the available snaps and the majority of the early action in a huge change for Houston.
- Damion Pierce It was largely ineffective for the first five weeks. He averaged 2.9 yards per carry and caught first downs on 10.7% of his carries. It was assumed that a large part of the problem was up front because he was still avoiding a lot of tackles.
- Pierce played 42 offensive snaps to Singletary’s four on first and second downs on the first two drives over the first five weeks, but split snaps — four each — in those situations this week.
- The Texans also used Singletary to close out the game. He played nine of 13 snaps in the fourth quarter, compared to two for Pierce and two for Mike Boone.
- Singletary ended up as the more effective runner of the two, averaging 4.8 yards per carry to Pierce’s 2.6.
- Singletary should be one of the top picks on the waiver wire this week, and Pierce should be kept out of the fantasy starting lineup.
Kareem Hunt cuts Jerome Ford’s playing time
Hunt started with Cleveland and was heavily involved in the running game.
- Pierre Strong Jr Hunt and Hunt both played significant snaps on early downs, but Hunt took over the majority of Strong’s previous workload.
- Hunt also cut a little work out of Ford on early downs.
- Hunt was the primary shortstop and Ford was the primary on third down, which was consistent with their previous game.
- Hunt was tied for second on the team in receiving yards (24) and was leading the team in rushing through the first three quarters.
- Ford gained 52 yards on five carries in the fourth quarter, which will help him maintain his role in the offense for the foreseeable future.
- Hunt should be a waiver wire target if he passes Ford as the Browns’ captain.
