Houston @ Chicago
Team Totals: Bears 21.5, Texans 18.5
Lovie Smith’s Texans visit his old Soldier Field stomping grounds having last week featured rookie RB Dameon Pierce to the tune of 16 touches and a 63% playing-time clip. In Weeks 1-2, enemy running backs baked Chicago for 5.33 yards per carry and the NFL’s ninth-most fantasy points. Rex Burkhead looms as a workload threat, although Burkhead is a 32-year-old journeyman who touched the ball twice last week. I’m approaching Pierce as a low-floor, probably touchdown-dependent RB2/flex play here. … Through 13 NFL starts, Davis Mills has yet to exceed 12 rushing yards while finishing below 260 passing yards nine times. Mills is a lukewarm two-quarterback-league option in this projected low-scoring affair.
