2019 Fantasy Outlook
Foreman's second season in the NFL was a write-off. Between a slow recovery from the torn Achilles tendon that cut short his rookie campaign and a coaching staff that seemed reluctant to trust him once he got healthy, he didn't even enter the lineup until Week 16, when he lost one yard on seven carries against Philadelphia. Despite positive offseason reports, Foreman was released by the Texans in August and quickly scooped up by the division-rival Colts. Shortly thereafter, he was placed on injured reserve with a torn biceps, ruling him out for the entire 2019 campaign. Read Past Outlooks

Reaches injury settlement
RBIndianapolis Colts
August 24, 2019
The Colts waived Foreman (biceps) from injured reserve with an injury settlement Saturday, NFL insider Adam Caplan reports.
Foreman's tenure with the Colts didn't last long as the former Texan suffered a torn biceps just two weeks after being claimed off waivers by Indianapolis. The injury settlement will allow Foreman to seek another destination, but a four-month recovery period awaits.

Rashaad Penny's rookie year didn't go well at all, but now that he's reportedly in improved shape he could issue a serious challenge to incumbent Chris Carson.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
A third-round pick in last year's draft, Foreman looks like a prototypical power back at an imposing 6-foot-1 and 235 pounds, but his game is primarily based on his surprising speed and agility. Smooth footwork and good instincts allow him to weave through traffic with ease, and his burst and vision are good enough to exploit holes as they open. He doesn't run with as much physicality as he could given his size, but he can still gain yards after contact almost despite himself, and at least in college he was effective at the goal line and in short-yardage situations. That skill set is in jeopardy after he suffered a torn Achilles tendon in Week 11, just as it seemed as if he was establishing himself in at least a timeshare arrangement with Lamar Miller. While the Texans were optimistic Foreman would be ready to go by training camp, he progressed slower than anticipated and will instead open the campaign on the PUP list. That ensures that he'll miss at least the first six weeks of the season, with an eventual move to injured reserve a possibility if he's unable to get back on the practice field by mid-October. Any loss of lateral agility would have a big impact on his game, but if he does make it back to the Texans at some point in 2018, he could emerge as Houston's primary ballcarrier.
A powerfully built running back with surprising agility and athleticism, Foreman was drafted in the third round by the Texans after Lamar Miller couldn't hold up under a full workload in 2016. Foreman has the size and strength to run between the tackles at 6-1, 233, but in college he showed a tendency to dance around contact rather than using his bulk to power through tacklers. That tendency didn't stop him from rushing for over 2,000 yards and 15 TDs in his final year at Texas, though, and if he can add a physical edge to his speed and elusiveness, he could prove to be a handful for any defense. Miller's presence will restrict his usage as a rookie, and Alfred Blue is still around, but that could give Foreman a chance to develop his skill set further before being asked to handle a large workload.
