Scouting report

HOU RB Donta Foreman - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Perhaps no Texans player was under more scrutiny this offseason than D'Onta Foreman following a disappointing, injury-marred year. He has worked diligently to get in better shape, and reported for the team's conditioning program weighing a much leaner 230 pounds. Foreman began last season on the physically unable to perform list, still recovering from the torn Achilles tendon he suffered as a rookie. When he returned to action after being activated in December, Foreman wasn't the same. He was rusty and not in proper football shape. But the third-year man is in position to get off to a faster start this season with multiple observers reporting Foreman is in great shape heading into training camp.

Fantasy Downside
We have a narrow band of production to work with here. Foreman rushed for 327 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie after being drafted in the third round.

2019 Bottom Line
Prior to his injury, Foreman had shown enough talent that there was talk of him eventually replacing Pro Bowl running back Lamar Miller. He'll be worth watching this summer and would have immediate value if something happens to Miller.

HOU RB Donta Foreman - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Seeing his first action of the season last week in the loss to the Eagles, D’Onta Foreman was ineffective on his seven carries, but caught a 20-yard fourth quarter TD reception. Lamar Miller was out and may miss Sunday’s game as well, which would mean decent playing time for Foreman. Look for him and Alfred Blue to split the backfield duties against a solid Jacksonville defense.

HOU RB Donta Foreman - 2018 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Foreman, a third-round pick last year, rushed for 327 yards and two touchdowns prior to suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon while scoring one of those touchdowns during a November win over Arizona. Foreman has been rehabbing the injury and all signs point to a full recovery -- at some point this season. According to Houston Chronicle staffer Aaron Wilson, Foreman appears trim and fit. The second-year man has been following a healthy diet and getting in as much weight lifting and conditioning with Texans strength coach Luke Richesson as possible.

Fantasy Downside
In addition to some minor off-field trouble (which isn't expected to draw league sanction), Foreman is taking a confident stance about his return. Foreman is also upbeat that he'll regain his old bruising form. "I definitely feel that way," Foreman said. "When I come back, I'll be just as good as before." That said, it appears unlikely Foreman will be full-go for the start of training camp.

2018 Bottom Line
Given all that, whether Foreman will be ready for the season opener against the Patriots remains up in the air. That's not his primary concern. It's about being fully healthy and having no setbacks in his recovery. Assuming he does, we saw enough last year to expect Foreman to have a continued role alongside starter Lamar Miller. And we've seen enough of Miller to suspect Foreman's role will grow sooner rather than later. But don't overinvest until we have some clarity on the timetable for his return.

HOU RB Donta Foreman - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. Arizona Cardinals

The Texans actually had a second-quarter lead at the Rams last week, but things quickly fell apart after halftime. In the loss, Donta Foreman carried the ball 7 times for 18 yards. The rookie will continue to back-up Lamar Miller, but the Texans offense just isn’t very explosive without Deshaun Watson. There is no reason Foreman should be part of your starting lineup, especially against the No. 8 ranked run defense.

HOU RB Donta Foreman - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Los Angeles Rams

After not seeing a carry in Week 8, Donta Foreman was back on the field last Sunday versus the Colts, backing up Lamar Miller. In the loss, the rookie actually had more carries than Miller (11 to 10), but was held to just 37 yards. It’s no surprise the Texans offense has dropped off with the change in QB to Tom Savage. Foreman should not be started this week against a tough Rams defense allowing less than 20 points per game.

HOU RB Donta Foreman - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs. Indianapolis Colts

It was Alfred Blue and not Donta Foreman who was used to spell Lamar Miller last Sunday at Seattle. The rookie was on the field for just 1 snap and did not receive a carry, after walking out of practice two days before the game. While Coach Bill O’Brien did not say Foreman’s lack of playing time was related to the incident, you have to believe there’s more to the story. Assuming he says and does the right things this week, Foreman will have a good opportunity for a strong outing against an Indianapolis defense ranked 19th versus the run. Be sure to monitor his status during the week.

HOU RB Donta Foreman - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 at Seattle Seahawks

In the blowout of Cleveland two weeks ago, Donta Foreman led the Texans with 59 rushing yards, on 12 carries. He just missed scoring on a long run that would’ve resulted in his first NFL TD. The rookie has been a nice complement to starter Lamar Miller and will continue to receive around 10 touches per game. Even though Seattle’s run defense has had its issues this season, Foreman should only be started if you’re desperate.
