Texans RB Donta Foreman is believed to have torn his Achilles.

Related players: Lamar Miller, Alfred Blue, Jordan Todman

Fantasy Impact:

As Rapoport added, it's terrible luck for Houston. Foreman actually was injured scoring on a TD. Blue looks like he'll take over as the backup to Miller and Todman moves up a spot on the depth chart.

Texans RB Lamar Miller (knee) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Miller will be fine to face the Colts. His upside is diminished with Deshaun Waston likely out for the year, but it’s still a good matchup for the volume runner.

Texans RB Lamar Miller (knee) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Miller should be fine to face the Colts. His upside is diminished with Deshaun Waston likely out for the year, but it’s still a good matchup for the volume runner.

O'Brien: RB Alfred Blue practicing better than D'Onta Foreman

Monday, October 30, 2017, 12:55pm

Houston Chronicle - [Full Article]

Donta Foreman had no carries Sunday as he was replaced by Alfred Blue. Both Texans coach Bill O'Brien and Foreman insisted that his reduction in status had nothing to do with him walking out Friday.

O'Brien said Blue had practiced better than Foreman.

Related players: Lamar Miller

Fantasy Impact:

Foreman and DeAndre Hopkins both skipped practice on Friday, but Hopkins had a monster game against the Seahawks, while Foreman played just one snap. This is something to keep an eye on, especially for Miller owners who are interested in having his handcuff. Strangely, since Week 2, Foreman averaged over 10 touches a game before getting none in Week 8.

Jets RB Matt Forte (knee, toe, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 4. ESPN’s Rich Cimini said that the Jets will “lean heavily” on Powell if Forte can’t play. Powell should serve as the lead back against the Jaguars, who are No. 12 in RB aFPA. However, the Jaguars have given up sizable yardage games to Alex Collins (82 yards), Derrick Henry (92 yards, touchdown), and Lamar Miller (65 yards) in each of the first three weeks. As the lead back in the final four games of last season, Powell averaged 23.7 fantasy points (PPR) and was second only to LeVeon Bell at his position in that span. When 4for4’s Joe Holka studied Powell for his Rushing Expectation series, he noted that Powell has “rare finishing ability” and “attacks defenses and runs with authority.” Holka also described himself as “a fan of Powell’s talent.” Powell hasn’t run the ball as well this year, but this should be his chance to get into a rhythm.

Texans RB D'Onta Foreman has looked good early

Monday, August 21, 2017, 7:37pm

USA Today - [Full Article]

Donta Foreman's performance through Houston's first two preseason games has many raving about the rookie.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien is not among them.

"That's the second preseason game ... he's got a lot of talent, but I think he's got a long way to go," O'Brien said.

Related players: Lamar Miller

Fantasy Impact:

While O'Brien was careful not to heap too much praise upon the running back so early, it's hard to deny that he's been one of the most impressive performers for the Texans so far. The third-round pick from Texas ran for 76 yards in the first preseason game before grabbing two receptions for 66 yards and rushing for a 4-yard touchdown on Saturday against the Patriots. The story suggested Foreman could be a change of pace to Miller.

O'Brien: QB Deshaun Watson 'ahead of any rookie quarterback I've ever been around.'

Tuesday, August 1, 2017, 1:19pm

Texans official Twitter - [Full Article]

When asked Tuesday about rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson's progress in training camp, head coach Bill O'Brien said, "Deshaun is ahead of any rookie quarterback I've ever been around."

The buzz is building around Watson, after many beat reporters speculated during OTAs that Tom Savage would be the Week 1 starter. The Texans traded up in the first round to select Watson after giving up a second round pick to the Browns to get rid of Brock Osweiler's contract.

O'Brien also said of Savage and star receiver DeAndre Hopkins: "They stay after practice. They are coming out early...watching film together. They get along really well."

Related players: Tom Savage, DeAndre Hopkins, Lamar Miller

Fantasy Impact:

Savage provides little fantasy upside to himself or the Texans wide receiving corp, with zero touchdown passes and one interception in five career games. Even if Watson were to win the job Week 1, our current combined projections for Savage and Watson would still put the Texans starting quarterback outside the top-24 fantasy quarterbacks. An upgrade at quarterback though, even a rookie quarterback, could potentially raise Hopkins' floor, after only catching 78 of the 151 targets thrown his way last season.

Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) took full practice reps all week. Miller had a couple of weeks off to get healthy, so he should be nearing 100 percent for a nice matchup with the Raiders (#23 in RB aFPA).

Lamar Miller should be ready to go for the playoff game.

Fantasy Impact:

With the Texans already wrapping up the division, Miller didn't play in Week 17 but it appears he'll be good to go next weekend.

Friday, December 30, 2016, 6:42pm

Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 17. With Miller out, Alfred Blue should see 15-20 touches as the team’s primary back.

Texans unsure if they'll have RB Lamar Miller Week 17

Tuesday, December 27, 2016, 9:52am

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

While Texans HC Bill O’Brien is planning to approach the game as usual, it’s not clear if running back Lamar Miller will be part of the mix. Miller didn’t play against Cincinnati because of an ankle injury.

Related players: Alfred Blue

Fantasy Impact:

O’Brien said Miller’s feeling better, but the bigger picture may still win out when it comes time to making out the lineup. Blue would likely see a big workload in Week 17 if Miller doesn't play.
