Houston Texans running back D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) said he feels better now than he has entering any season of his career and is "starting all over with a chip on my shoulder." Foreman, still only 23, wasn't quite able to make it back last season and managed just seven carries for negative-one yard in his only game for the Texans. The third-round pick in 2017 is on a mission to prove that he deserves more touches than Lamar Miller this year, and he might not be wrong. Miller has been pretty mediocre in his time with Houston, so Foreman will definitely be worth a handcuff pick in the event he overtakes the veteran in 2019.
Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien is seeing "good progress" from running back D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) after his "significant" Achilles injury. Foreman's work away from the team has helped him have a "good spring." The 23-year-old was trying to make a comeback last year but was only able to play in one game and had seven rushing attempts for negative-one yard. A healthy Foreman in 2019 will put pressure on Lamar Miller in the backfield. He'd be a worthy handcuff for any owner who selects Miller and could wind up seeing more touches eventually.
Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) has reportedly made 'good progress' in his recovery from his 'significant' Achilles injury in 2017 and parlayed that into a 'good spring,' according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) returned to the team in good shape, according to general manager Brian Gaine.
Fantasy Spin: Although the Texans are expected to add a pass-catching back in the draft, Foreman's recovery from his 2017 Achilles injury may be enough to convince Houston to do so on the third day instead of using a premium pick at the position. Although Lamar Miller had a solid year in 2018, a healthy Foreman would be able to push him and possibly forge a committee. At the very least, Foreman should be able to take over goal-line duties. Assuming no setbacks, he should be a solid late-round flier this summer.
Houston Texans running back D'Onta Foreman looks to be much leaner than he was in his first two NFL seasons and looked quick and explosive during an impromptu workout on Sunday. Foreman rushed the ball seven times for negative-one yard in his only game in 2018 that was mainly spent rehabbing an Achilles rupture. He adopted a demanding exercise program and a healthier diet this offseason. The 22-year-old is determined to put 2018 behind him and contribute for Houston this season. He rushed for 327 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie in 2017 and could surpass Lamar Miller as the lead back in 2019 if he's fully healthy. Foreman could be an excellent sleeper target in point-per-reception leagues if he proves his health throughout the offseason.
Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) is reportedly 'much leaner' than he was during his first two NFL seasons and is currently 'a few pounds shy' of the 235-pound weight at which he was listed on the roster in 2018.
Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') has worked hard so far this offseason and impressed the Texans with how he's looked after missing all but one game last year.
Fantasy Spin: Foreman appears to be recovered from the troublesome ruptured Achilles' tendon. The Texans didn't want to take their chances last year and essentially let him rest the whole season. Heading into 2019 he'll make a formidable one-two punch with Lamar Miller. Miller will still be the lead back, but Foreman is one of the more talented handcuffs in fantasy football.
Houston Texans running back D'Onta Foreman is expected to have a much bigger role in 2019 with Lamar Miller turning 28 in April and being inconsistent in his time in Houston. Foreman slowly returned from a torn Achilles in 2017, but head coach Bill O'Brien still believes that Foreman has a bright future with the team. "So, hopefully with a good offseason, here's a guy that can really, really be an excellent player in this league. I have a lot of belief in his ability, in D'Onta Foreman's ability," O'Brien said. Foreman will turn 23 in April and has played in just 11 games in his first two seasons, but he has a lot of upside as perhaps the team's lead back in 2019. He'll be worth a late-round flier in fantasy drafts this fall.
Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman still has a bright future with the team, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. 'So, hopefully with a good offseason, here's a guy that can really, really be an excellent player in this league,' O'Brien said.
Fantasy Spin: An Achilles' injury derailed the start of his career, but if he can stay healthy, he should be able to push Lamar Miller for playing team. Foreman remains an intriguing stash candidate in keeper formats and could be a sneaky sleeper in redraft leagues in 2019.
The Houston Texans have declared WR Keke Coutee, DL Joel Heath, CB Johnathan Joseph, DT Brandon Dunn, LB Josh Keyes, OT Roderick Johnson and RB D'Onta Foreman inactive for Week 17.
