Player Outlook
The Panthers added Foreman to deepen their running back group. Given the track record of Christian McCaffrey's health, Foreman isn't a bad player to add late on Draft Day, especially if you take McCaffrey in Round 1. Foreman had 100 yards and/or a touchdown in five of his final six games, but he struggled to maintain consistent efficiency, collecting 10 runs of 12-plus yards and 18 runs of zero or negative yards. It should be assumed that Foreman won't see much work for however long McCaffrey is healthy but may steal a touchdown or two, and then would be a much bigger part of the offense if McCaffrey were to miss time, though Chuba Hubbard will also see playing time. Foreman should be on your mind starting in Round 12 whether you safeguard your investment in McCaffrey, or are just looking for a late-round lottery ticket.

  • Panthers' D'Onta Foreman: Returns to practice

    Foreman is practicing Wednesday after dealing with a minor foot/ankle injury Tuesday, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. Foreman, a free-agent addition, hopes to supplant 2021 fourth-round pick Chuba Hubbard as the No. 2 back in Carolina. It doesn't sound like Foreman's minor foot injury will have much impact on their competition.

  • Panthers' D'Onta Foreman: Banged up in practice

    Foreman appeared to suffer a foot or ankle injury at Tuesday's practice and rode a bike on the side after exiting the session, Augusta Stone of panthers.com reports. It's a good sign Foreman stayed on the sideline and was able to move around under his own power, perhaps hinting at a bruise or minor sprain rather than something more serious. He and Chuba Hubbard are competing for backup roles behind do-it-all back Christian McCaffrey, who made only 10 appearances total the past two seasons after starting his career with three straight 16-game campaigns.

  • Panthers' D'Onta Foreman: Set to serve in complementary role

    Carolina is hoping Foreman can provide a bigger, more physical complement to Christian McCaffrey and Chuba Hubbard in the backfield in 2022, Darin Gantt of the team's official site reports. Foreman was brought aboard this offseason after filling in admirably for the injured Derrick Henry with the Titans in 2021. In nine games, he rushed 133 times for 566 yards (4.3 per carry) and three touchdowns, and he caught nine of 11 targets for 123 more yards. Although Hubbard proved to be a serviceable replacement while McCaffrey missed 10 games last season, he doesn't pack the punch that the 6-foot-1, 236-pound Foreman does. When healthy, McCaffrey should be the focus of Carolina's offense, but given his different skill set, Foreman could carve out a decent-sized complementary role and prove useful in short-yardage situations.

  • Panthers' D'Onta Foreman: Joining Carolina

    Foreman agreed to terms on a contract with the Panthers on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Foreman was a midseason signing of the Titans last fall as the team looked to fill the void left behind by Derrick Henry, who was lost for the rest of the regular season in Week 8 due to a broken bone in his foot. Foreman seized the opportunity, averaging 4.6 yards on his 137 carries while hauling in nine of 11 targets for 123 yards and scoring three touchdowns in 10 games (including Tennessee's divisional-round loss to the Bengals). With the Panthers, he'll clearly be behind Christian McCaffrey on the depth chart and likely competing with Chuba Hubbard for any backfield touches that remain.

  • Titans' D'Onta Foreman: Produces in relief

    Foreman rushed the ball four times for 66 yards in Saturday's 19-16 divisional-round loss to the Bengals. Foreman was relegated to backup duties due to the return of Derrick Henry (foot). Though that limited his opportunities, he was effective when called upon by ripping off gains of 45, 10 and nine yards. Tennessee's season ended in disappointing fashion, but it was very successful for Foreman from a personal perspective. He earned a career-high 133 carries to gain 566 yards and three touchdowns, which came primarily when he served as the team's lead back while Henry was sidelined. Foreman will enter the offseason as an unrestricted free agent and should finally be able to land a deal and earn a fairly substantial role in a backfield.

  • Titans' D'Onta Foreman: Drop in touches expected

    Foreman will likely play a reduced role in Saturday's divisional round against the Bengals, as Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports that the Titans have activated Derrick Henry (foot) from injured reserve. Even if Henry's not ready to return to his customary workhorse role right away, he'll likely get the majority of rushing attempts in Tennessee's backfield. Henry should usurp Foreman's early-down role, while Dontrell Hilliard's workload on passing downs will likely remain intact. After topping 20 rushing attempts in three of the past four games, Foreman will be fighting an uphill battle to even reach half that total against Cincinnati.

  • Titans' D'Onta Foreman: Can't get going

    Foreman rushed the ball 21 times for 69 yards in Sunday's 28-25 win over Houston. He added one reception for 15 yards. Foreman dominated work out of the backfield, out-touching Dontrell Hilliard 21-10. Even so, his production left plenty to be desired, as he averaged only 3.3 yards per carry while failing to find the end zone. His run as the Titans' lead back is also likely to be over as Derrick Henry (foot) has been activated from injured reserve with the expectation that he'll be able to return to the field for the team's postseason run.

  • Titans' D'Onta Foreman: Big bounceback effort

    Foreman rushed the ball 26 times for 132 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-3 win over the Dolphins. Foreman continued to handle the lead-back role for Tennessee, and he bounced back in a big way from a disappointing Week 16 performance. He benefited from a positive game script from a volume perspective to log a career-high 26 carries. Foreman also made the most of his opportunity by ripping off big gains of 35 and 14 yards in addition to notching a 21-yard touchdown late in the second quarter. Though the Titans use three backs, Foreman has managed to top 100 rushing yards in three of his last five games heading into a Week 18 matchup against the Texans.

  • Titans' D'Onta Foreman: Touchdown salvages poor performance

    Foreman recorded nine carries for 17 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 20-17 win over San Francisco. Foreman narrowly led the Titans' backfield by accounting for nine of the team's 24 rushing attempts. However, he was out-gained by both Jeremy McNichols and Dontrell Hilliard, with Foreman's longest rush of the day going for only eight yards. Adding to the disappointing effort was the fact that Foreman did not earn a target after posting multiple receptions in each of his last two contests. Even given all those negatives, Foreman managed to salvage his performance on a three-yard touchdown run midway through the third quarter. While the disappointing effort casts some doubt on Foreman's ability to produce in a Week 17 matchup against Miami, he is still likely to remain the lead back in Tennessee.

  • Titans' D'Onta Foreman: Full practice Tuesday

    Foreman (ankle) practiced in full Tuesday, John Glennon of SI.com reports. Foreman opened Week 16 prep with a limited showing at Monday's walkthrough, so bumping up to all activity one day later more or less clears him for Thursday's game against the 49ers. Over the last six contests, Foreman racked up 85 touches while Dontrell Hilliard and Jeremy McNichols combined for 79 touches during that span.

  • Titans' D'Onta Foreman: Tending to ankle issue

    Foreman was limited by an ankle injury at Monday's walkthrough, John Glennon of SI.com reports. Foreman has built himself up to have the upper hand in the Titans backfield in the wake of Derrick Henry hitting injured reserve due to a broken fifth metatarsal in his right foot. Since joining the team ahead of a Week 9 matchup with the Rams, Foreman has 85 touches for 456 yards and one rushing TD in six games. Meanwhile, Dontrell Hilliard and Jeremy McNichols have combined for 79 touches during that span. The team may just be managing Foreman's health with a Thursday game versus the Cardinals on the docket. Still, his status should be monitored to ensure he's available Week 15.

  • Titans' D'Onta Foreman: Tops 100 yards

    Foreman recorded 22 rushes for 108 yards in Sunday's 19-13 loss to Pittsburgh. He added two receptions for 27 yards. Foreman dominated work out of Tennessee's backfield with Dontrell Hilliard seeing only nine rushes and Jeremy McNichols six. Foreman took advantage of the opportunity, racking up chunk gains of 20 and 12 yards to top 100 rushing yards for the second time in his last three games. While Hillard served as the primary pass catcher out of the backfield, Foreman has also chipped in multiple receptions for the second consecutive contest. The only thing missing from Foreman's effort was a trip to the end zone, though he has also established himself as the team's goal-line back.

  • Titans' D'Onta Foreman: Serves as lead back

    Foreman recorded 13 carries for 47 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-0 win over the Jaguars. He added two receptions on two targets for 15 yards. Foreman accounted for 13 of the Titans' 34 rushing attempts, though no other back on the team surpassed eight carries. He wasn't particularly efficient as he managed only 3.6 yards per carry, and his longest gain went for only eight yards. However, Foreman did manage to find the end zone on the Titans' first offensive possession, punching in an attempt from five yards away. Since being promoted to Tennessee's active roster in Week 9, Foreman has topped 60 total yards in three of four games.

  • Titans' D'Onta Foreman: Shines in Week 12 loss

    Foreman rushed 19 times for 109 yards, brought in his only target for three yards and lost a fumble in the Titans' 36-13 loss to the Patriots on Sunday. With a makeshift receiving corps, the Titans turned heavily toward the run with success. Foreman was one of the beneficiaries, consistently ripping off solid gains, including a 30-yard scamper. With backfield mate Dontrell Hilliard actually outpacing Foreman with 131 yards on 12 carries, it will be interesting to see what the division of labor in the Tennessee ground attack looks like during a Week 14 home matchup versus the Jaguars following a Week 13 bye.

  • Titans' D'Onta Foreman: Likely to lead ground attack

    Foreman is expected to receive the "bulk of the carries" for the Titans in Sunday's game against the Patriots, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Following the Titans' decision to waive Adrian Peterson earlier this week, Foreman looks poised to serve as the No. 1 option on the ground for Tennessee, at least until Derrick Henry (foot) potentially returns from injured reserve in the final weeks of the regular season. With Peterson out of the mix and Jeremy McNichols (concussion) sidelined for the second week in a row, Dontrell Hilliard is the only competition Foreman will face for backfield reps Sunday, but the 5-foot-11, 202-pound Hilliard is seemingly being earmarked for a change-of-pace and passing-down role rather than challenging for a lead role as a runner. Even though Foreman is in line to receive the start, his snap count and usage will ultimately hinge on the game script. If the Titans fall behind early against New England and are forced into catchup mode -- like they were in last week's loss to the Texans -- Foreman could struggle to get more than 10 carries Sunday.

  • Titans' D'Onta Foreman: Set to suit up Sunday

    Foreman (tricep), who was listed as limited on Titans injury reports this week, doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game in New England, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Meanwhile, fellow running back Jeremy McNichols (concussion) didn't practice at all this week and will miss a second consecutive contest, leaving Foreman and Dontrell Hilliard to man Tennessee's backfield Sunday. In three appearances for the team, Foreman has hovered between 18 and 36 percent of offensive snaps, but that number may increase with just two RBs available to the offense. Overall, he's averaged 3.7 yards on his 23 carries and gathered in all three targets for 63 yards. When the Titans went pass-heavy this past Sunday against the Texans due to facing a large deficit, Hilliard was the back to prosper, tallying seven carries for 35 yards and eight catches (on 10 targets) for 47 yards on a 63 percent snap share.

  • Titans' D'Onta Foreman: Limited at practice Wednesday

    Foreman was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice due to a triceps injury, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Meanwhile, fellow running back Jeremy McNichols (concussion) didn't practice, and with Adrian Peterson no longer in the mix after being waived Tuesday, Dontrell Hilliard currently profiles as the Titans' top healthy backfield option. Assuming Foreman is able to play Sunday against the Patriots, he would be in line to share work with Hilliard, with Rodney Smith a candidate to be elevated from the team's practice squad should McNichols remain sidelined this weekend.

  • Titans' D'Onta Foreman: Struggles against Texans

    Foreman recorded seven carries for 25 yards in Sunday's 22-13 loss to the Texans. He added one reception for 15 yards A week after leading the Titans in carries, Foreman slipped behind Adrian Peterson's workload of nine carries. That could have been in part due to Foreman's ineffectiveness, as he managed to average 3.6 yards per carry with his longest rush going for a gain of only nine. Since joining the Titans in Week 9, Foreman has recorded 23 carries for 84 yards across three games.

  • Titans' D'Onta Foreman: Leads backfield

    Foreman carried the ball 11 times for 30 yards in Sunday's 23-21 win over the Saints. He added two receptions for 48 yards. Foreman led the Titans' backfield with 11 carries, and he out-paced Adrian Peterson both in opportunity and production on the ground. However, his primary contributions came on receptions of 39 and nine yards. Foreman has quickly found himself in a significant role with the Titans both as a rusher and pass catcher, as he now has 16 rushing attempts and two receptions in a pair of games with the team. Despite his relatively secure role in the offense, Foreman is still stuck in a three-way split in the Titans' backfield, limiting his potential for volume moving forward.

  • Titans' D'Onta Foreman: Sees five carries

    Foreman recorded five rushes for 29 yards in Sunday's 28-16 win over the Rams. After signing with Tennessee earlier in the week, Foreman finished third on the team in carries behind Adrian Peterson and Jeremy McNichols in the absence of Derrick Henry (foot). Foreman was fairly effective in his opportunities, racking up gains of 11 and eight yards on the ground. It's likely that he will remain in line for at least some work going forward, though it appears the Titans are willing to utilize a split between Peterson, McNichols and Foreman out of the backfield.
