2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Samford product has played in all 32 games to this point in his NFL career, racking up 51 tackles and 3.0 sacks from the defensive interior. Built like a fire hydrant at 6-foot, 340 pounds, Pierce eats up space and moves offensive linemen with his strength and leverage, allowing fellow linemen like Brandon Williams to hunt down the ball carrier. He'll reprise that role again in 2018 as a starter in Baltimore's front.
