2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Coach's Decision
December 15, 2018
Foreman (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday's game against the Jets.
ANALYSIS
Though Foreman was activated from the PUP list Dec. 4, the Texans apparently don't feel the second-year back is ready to contribute coming off November 2017 surgery to repair his Achilles' tendon. Foreman has been a full practice participant since being added back to the 53-man roster but may not have regained the same speed and explosiveness he displayed during his injury-shortened rookie campaign. With that in mind, the Texans will continue to deploy Alfred Blue as the main backup to Lamar Miller, with No. 4 back Buddy Howell's prowess on special teams earning him the active nod over Foreman, who isn't used on the team's kick coverage or return units.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
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.
