Bears' Artavis Pierce: Receives one touch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bears' Artavis Pierce: Scores first NFL touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bears' Artavis Pierce: Healthy scratch against Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bears' Artavis Pierce: Minor role in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bears' Artavis Pierce: Healthy scratch against Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bears' Artavis Pierce: Promoted to Chicago's roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierce was promoted from Chicago's practice squad to the 53-man roster Tuesday, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

Pierce will have a chance to mix in behind David Montgomery at the running back position with Tarik Cohen done for the season with a torn ACL. The only other running back on the team is special teams contributor Ryan Nall, though Cordarrelle Patterson also has some experience at the position.

Artavis Pierce: Lands on practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierce cleared waivers Sunday and signed with the Bears' practice squad, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

With David Montgomery (hamstring) uncertain for Week 1, Pierce lost the battle to Ryan Nall to round out the running-back room. If Montgomery is unable to play in the season opener, however, Pierce could be activated to serve as depth against the Lions.

Artavis Pierce: Unable to make final team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears waived Pierce on Saturday, Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Pierce briefly appeared to be in the mix for a backfield gig while David Montgomery (groin) worked his way back to full health, but he'll now be subjected to waivers. Tarik Cohen, Ryan Nall and Cordarrelle Patterson remain Chicago's top running backs behind Montgomery.

Bears' Artavis Pierce: Could be early down backup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Should David Montgomery (groin) be forced to miss time, Pierce could be a candidate to handle work on early downs, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

With Tarik Cohen being a receiving specialist, Cordarrelle Patterson preferring to run outside the tackles and Ryan Nall only seeing two carries last year, Pierce appears to be the most traditional running back among Montgomery's backups. Earlier in training camp, running backs coach Charles London stated that Pierce was very explosive and getting better each day. In terms of fantasy value, it will depend whether Montgomery misses time, and if that happens, Pierce could certainly be worthy of a flex spot while the latter is out of action.

Bears' Artavis Pierce: Back on active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears activated Pierce (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday.

The undrafted rookie out of Oregon State will now be able to join teammates at training camp. He's working to carve out a depth role in Chicago's backfield. The Bears waived Napoleon Maxwell to make room for him on the offseason roster.

Bears' Artavis Pierce: Placed on reserve list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears placed Pierce on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Larry Mayer of the team's official website reports.

The undrafted rookie out of Oregon State won't be present for the start of team activities. The designation doesn't necessarily mean he has tested positive for COVID-19, as it can also be used for players that have been in close contact with an infected person. Pierce could return at some point in August to compete for a roster spot.
