CAR RB D'Onta Foreman - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

D’Onta Foreman had a great game against the Lions last week, rushing for 165 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries. He still split work with Chuba Hubbard, but the Panthers put on a rushing clinic in a lopsided victory.

This week, Foreman faces a Buccaneers defense that ranks 14th in aFPA to opposing running backs. Don’t expect the same game script in what should be a closer game, limiting Foreman’s upside. Hubbard and Blackshear get the passing down work, so Foreman should be considered a fringe RB2 option at best.

CAR RB D'Onta Foreman - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. Detroit Lions

D’Onta Foreman was held to just nine yards on 10 rushing attempts in a game where the Panthers struggled offensively and played from behind throughout the game. Foreman gets the ball in close contests when the Panthers are grinding clock, but Chuba Hubbard seems to be the preferred option on passing downs. Foreman is too risky against the Lions, who rank first in aFPA to opposing running backs. Expect the Lions to put points on the board, limiting Foreman’s snaps. We have him ranked outside starter territory this week in all leagues.

CAR RB D'Onta Foreman - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

D’Onta Foreman was in a straight-up timeshare last week with Chuba Hubbard, but still wound up with 21 carries for 74 yards. He doesn’t seem to be much of a factor on passing downs, but when the team needs to grind the clock, he’s the guy.

The Steelers rank 18th in aFPA to opposing running backs, so it’s not a bad matchup for the Carolina running game. Foreman’s upside is limited while he’s sharing snaps, but the Panthers should be able to keep this game close enough to give Foreman fringe-RB2 numbers again.

CAR RB D'Onta Foreman - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 at Seattle Seahawks

D’Onta Foreman had a nice game against the Broncos before the bye last week, rushing for 113 yards on 24 carries. Foreman has been good when the team is able to lean on the run, and Denver’s woeful offense proved to be a great opportunity for Foreman to eat.

This week, Foreman faces a very vulnerable Seahawks defense that ranks 31st in aFPA to opposing running backs. Foreman is a little nicked up and it’s possible the Seahawks get ahead early and the Panthers end up abandoning the run early. Still, if he gets a full workload, he should land in solid RB2 territory. He’s worth starting, while understanding some game script risk.

CAR RB D'Onta Foreman - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 vs. Denver Broncos

D’Onta Foreman was limited to just 11 carries and 24 yards last week in a low-scoring defeat to the Baltimore Ravens. It’s going to be hard for Foreman to get back on track this week against a Broncos defense that ranks eighth in aFPA to opposing running backs. However, Denver has struggled offensively this season, which should enable Carolina to keep the game close. As long as they don’t get blown out, Foreman should see a heavy workload, giving him upside, but we have him conservatively ranked outside RB2 territory. This offense stinks.

CAR RB D'Onta Foreman - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Baltimore Ravens

D’Onta Foreman had another good game against the Falcons last week, rushing 31 times for 130 yards and a touchdown. He didn’t catch his lone target and he continues to be an afterthought in the passing game, but his rushing production has made him a stellar fantasy option since the Panthers traded away Christian McCaffrey. Foreman has rushed for over 100 yards in three of the last four games.

This week, Foreman faces a Ravens defense that ranks sixth in aFPA to opposing running backs. Also, game script could put Foreman’s touches at risk, as the Ravens are heavily favored in this one. Foreman’s role on the offense makes him worth consideration, but temper expectations in this one. Consider him a low-end RB2 option.

CAR RB D'Onta Foreman - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. Atlanta Falcons

D’Onta Foreman had a rough outing against the Bengals last week, as the Panthers were completely blown out. Foreman ended up with just 21 total yards on seven carries and a pair of receptions. Still, this is Foreman’s job and he led the Panthers’ backfield with 43% of the offensive snaps, despite the team being behind for so much of the contest.

Foreman should get back on track this week against a vulnerable Falcons defense that ranks 20th in aFPA to opposing running backs. The Falcons are also unlikely to get out to a tremendous early lead, so game script should be in Foreman’s favor. Expect him to get back to RB2 numbers.
