    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') likely will start the regular season on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list, in the opinion of the Houston Chronicle's John McClain. Foreman would miss the first six weeks of the season if he is on the PUP list.

    Huddle Up: Foreman was expected to push for the starting job, but it appears like he may not be on the field until the middle of the season. Owners could consider stashing Foreman on their bench if they have the room on their roster. Lamar Miller should receive most of the work at running back for the Texans and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy back.

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') is headed in the right direction in terms of his recovery, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. Foreman is currently on Active/Physically Unable to Perform list.

    Huddle Up: Foreman's availability for Week 1 is uncertain at this point, so owners will need to keep an eye on his recovery. He probably will be the backup running back when he returns but could make a play for the starting job during the season. He could be a handcuff to Lamar Miller in some leagues or a No. 4 running back on a roster.

  • Posted: 7/25/2018 3:32pm ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman's (Achilles') availability for Week 1 is up in the air at this point, according to general manager Brian Gaine.

    Huddle Up: Foreman was expected to compete for the starting running back job but probably will be the No. 2 back if he misses most of training camp. Lamar Miller probably is the most valuable Texans running back and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy back. Owners could consider adding Foreman as a handcuff to Miller.

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (knee) was placed on the Physically Unable to Peform list Wednesday, July 25.

    Huddle Up: Foreman was giving Lamar Miller a run for his money last year before suffering a torn Achilles' tendon. It remains to be seen if Foreman will eventually start the regular season on the PUP list, so stay tuned. He's one of the most valuable handcuffs in fantasy when healthy.

  • Posted: 7/22/2018 7:38am ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') is expected to be fully recovered from a torn Achilles' tendon by the start of the regular season.

    Huddle Up: Foreman should be viewed as a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3 in all fantasy leagues with plenty of upside. If healthy, he could eventually supplant Lamar Miller as the Texans' starting running back.

  • Posted: 6/16/2018 7:58pm ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') is unlikely to be 100 percent by the start of training camp.

    Huddle Up: Foreman remains a must-own player in keeper leagues with RB2 upside, but at this point, there is no guarantee he will be fully healthy by Week 1. Lamar Miller will be a volume-based RB2 until Foreman is on the field and in playing shape.

  • Posted: 4/21/2018 7:55pm ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') may have to begin the season on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

    Huddle Up: There is also a chance that Foreman will be ready for Week 1, so keep an eye on his status throughout the offseason. He is expected to challenge Lamar Miller for the starting role this year, and Foreman will be a RB3 with upside in 2018.

  • Posted: 3/27/2018 1:03pm ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') is expected to be ready for training camp but may not take part in offseason workouts, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    Huddle Up: Foreman is expected to have a bigger role on offense in 2018 and may take over as the starting running back during the season. He has a chance to be a No. 3 running back in some leagues depending on his role.

  • Posted: 2/28/2018 10:13am ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') could be ready for Week 1 of the 2018 season.

    Huddle Up: Foreman is expected to see a larger role in the upcoming season, though it may take a few weeks for it to materialize based on how well he recovers this offseason. He is a low-end flex target but more safely an RB4.

  • Posted: 11/22/2017 4:32pm ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Nov. 22.

    Huddle Up: Foreman should be ready for 2018 and will have value in all fantasy leagues. Alfred Blue and Andre Ellington will back up Lamar Miller for the rest of the season but they probably can be avoided most weeks.

  • Posted: 11/21/2017 10:04pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' tendon in Week 11 and will miss the remainder of the season.

    Huddle Up: This was the initial diagnosis Sunday and with it now confirmed Foreman can be sent to waivers in all single-year leagues. Minus Foreman, Alfred Blue becomes someone of interest, particularly to Lamar Miller owners.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 1:56pm ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') is believed to have torn his Achilles' tendon on his game-winning touchdown run in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals, sources said Sunday, Nov. 19.

    Huddle Up: It's a rough season for injuries in Houston. Even when something good happens, something bad happens on the same play. With Foreman done it appears Lamar Miller has the backfield work all too himself.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 3:21pm ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman rushed 11 times for 37 yards in Week 9 against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Foreman was the No. 3 tailback in Week 8 in Seattle and didn't sniff the field, as Alfred Blue was used ahead of him. The rookie was back and actually had more rushes than Miller, who was limited in practice earlier in the week due to a knee.

  • Posted: 11/4/2017 6:50pm ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman received zero carries against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 8, but he said he is hoping to have a bigger role in the offense against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 9.

    Huddle Up: With Tom Savage back under center, Foreman could go back to the 8-10 touches he was receiving early in the year. That being said, he remains a handcuff for Lamar Miller rather than a potential fantasy starter.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 2:44pm ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman rushed 12 times for a team-high 59 yards in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Foreman is normally the hammer and complement to the more elusive Lamar Miller, but he averaged 4.9 yards per carry to Miller's 2.7 in this one, so he was featured more. Foreman also saw more work in the second half with the game out of hand, too. He is expected to remain second fiddle to Miller, but we'll have to wait until Week 8 to see how the situation continues to unfold, as the Texans have a bye next week.

  • Posted: 10/13/2017 3:25pm ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (hip) was able to practice in full Friday, Oct. 13, and he was lifted from the injury report before the Week 6 game with the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Foreman had been getting about 10-12 touches per game as the team's hammer, but he was limited to just five total touches in Week 5 after a costly lost fumble. He'll be looking to atone for his mistake in Week 6, but he really only has value in deeper fantasy leagues as a RB3 or flex play.

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 1:45pm ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (hip) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Foreman has been receiving limited touches each game and has not rushed for more than 45 yards in any game this season. He probably will receive a similar role in Week 6 and can be avoided in most leagues.

  • Posted: 10/11/2017 1:56pm ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (hip) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Foreman saw his touches rise to 13 in Week 4 against the Titans, after 10 touches the week before against the Patriots and 12 touches in Week 2 against the Bengals. However, Foreman had a costly fumble against the Chiefs last Sunday resulting in just five total touches. He still has plenty of upside, and is a load at 6'0 and 235 pounds. However, as long as Lamar Miller remains healthy Foreman's fantasy appeal is rather limited.

  • Posted: 10/7/2017 8:27pm ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman said he is comfortable in the offense, but he is working on being patient and letting gaps develop to try to break longer runs.

    Huddle Up: Foreman's longest run this season is 16 yards, and he is averaging 3.4 yards per carry. Although he is the backup to Lamar Miller, he has routinely been given double-digit touches and should be owned in all but the shallowest of leagues.

  • Posted: 9/28/2017 7:32pm ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman can do 'different things' for the offense and should improve with more reps, head coach Bill O'Brien said. 'I mean, he can definitely get tough yards up inside,' O'Brien said. 'He's a big guy, he runs with a good forward lean. He can catch the ball out of the backfield, he can run to the outside. He's got a really good skill set.'

    Huddle Up: Lamar Miller hasn't provided many explosive plays, and Foreman has seen his role grow since the opener. Foreman can't be counted on as a fantasy starter yet, but he should be owned in all formats at this point.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 2:30pm ET

    Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman caught two passes for 65 yards against the New England Patriots in Week 3. He also rushed for 25 yards on eight carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Foreman has received at least 10 touches in each of the last two games and could receive a bigger role as the season goes on. He probably should not be in starting lineups at this point but should be owned in all leagues.
