2. D’Onta Foreman, RB
Hear this out before you throw up your hands in frustration about giving a reserve running back consideration during a fantasy draft in 2019. Lamar Miller will be the starting running back for the Texans if all goes well during camps and no injuries occur.
Foreman is entering the camp season much healthier than last year, as he’s recovered from his Achilles injury and could (and should) see a good in snaps and carries in 2019. In 2018, Foreman played in just one regular-season game, and with this being his third season in the Texans system, they are expecting quality output from the running back.
Foreman is in a prime spot too on the roster depth chart, according to OurLads.com, as he’s taking over the role vacated by Alfred Blue, who left via free agency and signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The departure of Blue to the Jaguars is the best thing for Foreman, as he’s now backing up Miller, who hasn’t had a 1,000-yard rushing season since 2016.
One issue for Foreman — and even Miller — is the fact the run blocking wasn’t any good last season, so that is the biggest obstacle for Foreman’s success in fantasy football in 2019.
Foreman could be a last-round pickup for those with Miller on your fantasy football roster, or for those who like to take chance with low risk, high reward in the late rounds.
