As far as I remember, Houston DID make many indications that they would be willing to look elsewhere for a RB (drafting a RB, and last year considering subbing for DD). This offseason I was very confused about that since he has had a GREAT 2 years and accounts for the majority of their red zone looks and touches.
However, at the end of the offseason, Houston gave DD a fat new contract that shows they see the same things others do in him. I think the new contract cements his place as the starter this year so I wouldn't expect a change.
Having said that I think after week 3 his stock will be absolutely lowest of the year. Pitt will be tough and he has a bye week.
Personally I would pick him up since I think he'll have a great season after week 3.
