Who is D'Onta Foreman

D'Onta Foreman is a massive running back with an 85th-percentile BMI. His 4.51 40 time, while solid for any running back, earned a size-adjusted 95th-percentile speed score. With his great college stats and an outstanding SPARQ-x score, the Houston Texans selected Foreman in the third round of the 2017 draft.

Seeing a significant snap share and double-digit carries as soon as Week 2 in his rookie season, he acquitted himself rather well, posting 327 yards at 4.2 yards per carry as a 21-year old in his first 11 NFL games. He was non-existent as a receiver, though, posting a 2.7-percent target share. Disaster struck for Foreman in Week 11, when, while scoring his second touchdown of the day, he tore his achilles tendon, went on Injured Reserve, and was lost for the year. He also lost most of 2018, posting a single carry late in the season.

During 2019 training camp, the Texans cut Foreman. Indianapolis claimed him the next day. Two weeks later, a torn biceps put him back on Injured Reserve. The Colts released him a week after that. Before the 2020 season, Foreman tried out with Tennessee, earning a position on their practice squad. Behind Derrick Henry, Foreman saw little action but found his way back onto an NFL field, scoring his first regular season touchdown in two years.

Before 2021, the Titans released Foreman. In August, he signed with the Falcons – twice – and they released him twice. When the Titans lost Henry in November, they re-signed Foreman to a contract for the remainder of the season. Without Henry, Foreman became the Titans bell cow, posting as much as a 73.7-percent snap share in Week 17. In his 4th game of the year, Foreman rushed for 109 yards. Two weeks later, it was 108. Two weeks after that, 132. While none of his performance metrics were extraordinary and he failed to play any role in the passing game, the role of lead back on the league’s most run-heavy team made Foreman a viable fantasy running back in 2021. He finished the season with the No. 33 fantasy ranking at 10.4 points per game and with Next Gen Stats’ No. 27 Efficiency Ranking – not bad at all for a player that had entered the season with an ADP outside the top 100 running backs.
