Foreman had one carry for three yards and was targeted once in Saturday's 21-7 wild-card round loss to the Colts.
Foreman, who missed the first 12 games of the season due to his recovery from a ruptured Achilles, was active for just the second game since his return Week 14. The history of players returning from similar injuries is not encouraging, particularly for running backs, per this study in the journal Foot & Ankle International. That doesn't mean he can't be an impact player in 2019, but fantasy owners should proceed with caution.
Foreman rushed seven times for a loss of one yard but caught both of his targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 32-30 loss to the Eagles.
Foreman found himself wide open in the middle of the field and caught a strike from Deshaun Watson for an easy touchdown with 4:41 left in the game. Aside from that, the 22-year-old was unable to do much in his first game action since returning from an Achilles injury. He did see three more carries than Alfred Blue, however, and an equal amount of touches. The former Longhorn will likely remain at least the change-of-pace back even if Lamar Miller returns for Week 17 at home against the Jaguars.
Foreman is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles with Lamar Miller (ankle) sidelined, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Foreman, a 2017 third-round pick, acted as the top complement to Miller for the majority of his rookie campaign before tearing his Achilles' tendon Nov. 19 of that year. The lengthy rehab he required after surgery resulted in him opening the season on the PUP list before he was activated earlier this month. He'll now get the chance to make his season debut, likely handling a limited role on offense behind fill-in starter Alfred Blue.
Coach Bill O'Brien said Foreman may be active for Week 16 in Philadelphia, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Foreman was activated from the PUP list Dec. 4 but hasn't actually been active for any games. Lamar Miller's ankle injury may create an opening in Week 16, with Alfred Blue and undrafted rookie Buddy Howell representing the other options at running back. Even if he ends up playing, Foreman would probably have to settle for a small role in a multi-player backfield. He's still an intriguing asset in dynasty/keeper leagues, but the appeal is limited in redraft formats.
