Pierce lost one yard on his only rushing attempt in Chicago's 35-16 loss to the Packers on Sunday. Pierce appeared in just four games this season, rushing six times for 34 yards and a touchdown, and after the Bears complete their playoff run, he'll return in 2021 for the last year of his contract, and he'll likely be fighting for a roster spot as a depth option in the backfield.
Pierce rushed twice for 26 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's 41-17 victory over the Jaguars on Sunday. Pierce has just five carries over the four games he's played this season, and it's unlikely he'll have enough of a role in the offense to be a fantasy factor in Week 17 against the Packers.
Pierce (coach's decision) is inactive for the Bears' Week 13 matchup against Detroit. Chicago's running back depth has been thin behind starter back David Montgomery ever since Tarik Cohen suffered a torn ACL on Sept. 27. Long-time receiver and special-teams guru Cordarrelle Patterson has been serving as the No. 2 option at the position, while Pierce remains with just three total carries on the 2020 campaign.
Pierce had three carries for nine yards in Chicago's 19-13 loss to Minnesota on Monday. With David Montgomery sitting this game out with a concussion, Pierce was second on the Bears in rushing attempts behind Cordarrelle Patterson. If Montgomery is forced to miss another game after Chicago's Week 11 bye, it's unlikely Pierce sees enough volume to provide much upside for fantasy managers.
Pierce (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports. The 24-year-old back out of Oregon State was called up to Chicago's 53-man roster Tuesday, though the Bears have elected to roll with David Montgomery and Ryan Nall as the team's only active RBs heading into Week 4. Cordarrelle Patterson may continue to get some run, as he already has 15 rush attempts through three games, but Pierce remains in search of his first NFL carry.
