Indianapolis Colts RB D'Onta Foreman (biceps) will remain with the team while rehabbing torn biceps. He's expected to miss four months but the team intends to keep him for next year.
Huddle Up: In the event you had doubts before, he is no longer on any fantasy radar after being placed on IR.

Free-agent RB D'Onta Foreman (Texans) was claimed off waivers by the Indianapolis Colts on Monday, Aug. 5.
Huddle Up: It is an interesting - in that he'll stay inside the AFC South - yet predictable landing spot for Foreman after Spencer Ware landed on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list late last week. Work ethic issues reportedly led to the end of Foreman's career in Houston, but he's more than talented enough to emerge as Marlon Mack's backup by the end of camp if his mind is right.

The Houston Texans waived RB D'Onta Foreman Sunday, Aug. 4.
Huddle Up: Foreman was waived because the Texans were disappointed with his work habits but he shouldn't have much difficulty latching on with another team. Damarea Crockett, Josh Ferguson, Karan Higdon, Buddy Howell and Taiwan Jones will battle for the No. 2 RB job in Houston behind Lamar Miller.

Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman is reportedly part of a 'wide-open' competition for the backup job behind Lamar Miller, according is made by head coach Bill O'Brien.
Huddle Up: This has the feel of coach-speak and could be O'Brien's way of motivating Foreman during early camp practices. If the third-year back is legitimately part of a competition, he's battling Josh Ferguson, Taiwan Jones, Buddy Howell, Karan Higdon and Damarea Crockett for the job. Assuming Foreman is looking as good as O'Brien made him sound this spring, he will win this "competition" going away and could easily force a split backfield with Miller during the season.

Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman's performance this year will be a 'season-long audition' to show he deserves to be the lead back in 2020, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.
Huddle Up: Lamar Miller enters 2019 as the starter, but he is also in a contract year. Foreman is a high-end handcuff in redraft leagues for now, but his upside in keeper formats is enormous. By next season, he could be the featured back in a potent offense.

Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) returned to the team in good shape, according to general manager Brian Gaine.
Huddle Up: Although the Texans are expected to add a pass-catching back in the draft, Foreman's recovery from his 2017 Achilles injury may be enough to convince Houston to do so on the third day instead of using a premium pick at the position. Although Lamar Miller had a solid year in 2018, a healthy Foreman would be able to push him and possibly forge a committee. At the very least, Foreman should be able to take over goal-line duties. Assuming no setbacks, he should be a solid late-round flier this summer.

Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') has worked hard so far this offseason and impressed the Texans with how he's looked after missing all but one game last year.
Huddle Up: Foreman appears to be recovered from the troublesome ruptured Achilles' tendon. The Texans didn't want to take their chances last year and essentially let him rest the whole season. Heading into 2019 he'll make a formidable one-two punch with Lamar Miller. Miller will still be the lead back, but Foreman is one of the more talented handcuffs in fantasy football.

Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman still has a bright future with the team, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. 'So, hopefully with a good offseason, here's a guy that can really, really be an excellent player in this league,' O'Brien said.
Huddle Up: An Achilles' injury derailed the start of his career, but if he can stay healthy, he should be able to push Lamar Miller for playing team. Foreman remains an intriguing stash candidate in keeper formats and could be a sneaky sleeper in redraft leagues in 2019.

Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman posted seven runs for minus-1 yard in Week 16 against the Philadelphia Eagles, but he stepped up with two receptions, 28 yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Foreman and Alfred Blue struggled on the ground in place of the injured Lamar Miller. It was Foreman's first action of the season and he shouldn't be trusted in Week 17 even if he splits the backfield touches again in the regular-season finale.

Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') 'could' see his first action of the season in Week 16 versus the Philadelphia Eagles, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Huddle Up: Foreman has been inactive the last two games since being activated from the PUP list earlier this month, but O'Brien's hand could be forced this week given the fact Lamar Miller (ankle) may be limited or unable to go. Alfred Blue is Miller's direct backup at the moment, but he gives the offense virtually nothing more than a big back who is decent near the goal line. All of this makes Foreman a decent add off waivers this week, but it is highly doubtful he will see enough action to be worth starting in fantasy.
