D’Onta Foreman a Week 6 Waiver Wire Must-Add with Looming Return

Texans RB D’Onta Foreman remains “on track” to return off the PUP in Week 7 after recovering from an Achilles Tear. Once back, Foreman could be on the fast track to a starting RB role in one of the league’s most explosive attacks; starter Lamar Miller has been both ineffective and dinged up throughout 2018, and Alfred Blue is nothing more than a placeholder. The bulldozing Foreman would immediately drip in high TD-upside, and could eventually be a featured back. His ownership has spiked from just 4% owned to 20% in the last week, but Foreman remains a must-stash wherever else available.

The former Doak Walker Award winner as the nation’s best back, Foreman is a mauling runner at 6’0″ and 233 lbs. He has surprising speed and agility for a back his size, and was excellent in short-yardage at Texas. At times, Foreman goes down a bit easier than you’d like, and he displays questionable vision. Still, he’s a thoroughbred who can shoulder massive workloads and sustain production.

This is key, because volume in one of the league’s most explosive attacks will likely be up for grabs upon his return. Before going down in Week 11, Foreman was off to his best professional day and en route to stealing this gig, taking 10 carries for 65 yards and 2 scores, in addition to another 3 catches for 15 yards. Deshaun Watson seems to be back to his insane 2017 form, which should mean plenty of scoring opportunities for whoever’s under-center. Where Miller has failed to capitalize, Foreman could thrive. Stash and pray.
