Bears GM Ryan Poles highlighted RB Roschon Johnson's pass-protection ability when discussing what he likes about the 4th-round rookie. Johnson allowed just eight pressures and two sacks on 160 pass-blocking snaps across four college seasons. Pass-blocking doesn't score us fantasy points, of course. But it gets a RB on the field for the all-important passing downs. Considering Khalil Herbert and D'Onta Foreman's scant pass-catching resumes, Johnson has a good chance to win a passing-down role in Chicago this season.

The Bears added RB Roschon Johnson in the fourth round of the 2023 NFL Draft. Living in the shadow of Texas teammate Bijan Robinson, it’s difficult to say precisely how good Johnson is. Not only did he initially commit to Texas as a QB and change positions, but he’s the only prospect in this class we profiled who was never the leader of his college backfield. It’s tough to point to Johnson’s stats because of that, but you’ll like what you see if you dig into his film. At 6’0, 219 pounds, Johnson is a brick house with plenty of versatility. He’s an excellent pass protector, a capable receiver out of the backfield, and even matched Robinson with a 1.52-second 10-yard split. With his quick burst and well-rounded skill set, there’s an outside shot that Johnson could blossom into being a reliable depth piece on fantasy rosters with a tantalizing three-down upside at best. He joins Khalil Herbert and D’Onta Foreman in a relatively up-for-grabs backfield. Johnson is a candidate to carve out a significant role as a rookie.

The Bears signed RB D'Onta Foreman to a 1-year, $3 million deal. Foreman is coming off a nice season in Carolina, posting a career-high 914 rushing yards on 4.5 yards per carry. He ranked 26th among 42 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus' rushing grades and 21st in Elusive Rating. New backfield mate Khalil Herbert beat Foreman in both metrics, finishing 25th and 6th. We'll consider Herbert the favorite to lead Chicago's David Montgomery-less backfield in carries for now but will keep a close eye on the backfield all offseason. It's worth noting that neither Herbert nor Foreman have much pass-catching production on their resumes. The Bears also have change-of-pace types Travis Homer and Trestan Ebner on the RB depth chart. There's a chance this is a 3-man committee backfield in 2023.

Panthers RB D'Onta Foreman (knee) is active for today's game vs. the Saints. He was added to the injury report on Friday and listed as questionable but is evidently healthy enough to play in this meaningless game.

Panthers RB D'Onta Foreman racked up 165 yards and a TD on 21 carries in Saturday's whipping of the Lions. RB Chuba Hubbard added 125 yards on 12 carries, and even RB Raheem Blackshear scored among his 3 carries. Carolina gets a rematch with Tampa Bay in week 17. Foreman and Hubbard combined for 181 yards on 24 carries in the 1st meeting. It'll still be tough to trust either member of this inconsistent backfield inside the top 24, but the upside is clear.

The Panthers totaled just 21 rushing yards on 16 carries (1.3 per rush) in Sunday's loss to the Steelers. RB D'Onta Foreman managed just 9 yards on 10 carries, with Chuba Hubbard rushing 4 times for 10 yards. Hubbard made up for it 57 yards on 3 receptions. A 45-yard catch-and-run powered that. Carolina RBs shouldn't factor heavily into your plans vs. Detroit or Tampa Bay the next 2 weeks.

Panthers RB D'Onta Foreman carried 21 times for 74 yards in Sunday's win over the Seahawks. He watched RBs Chuba Hubbard and Raheem Blackshear claim the team's 2 rushing scores, though. Carolina went run-heavy in a game that saw them score the 1st 17 points and never trail. Hubbard finished with a. 14-74-1 rushing line and led the backfield with 3 catches for 25 yards on 3 targets. Blackshear logged 4 carries for 32 yards and 1 catch for 17 yards (on 1 target). Foreman still led the group in playing time but loses some floor if half the work is going elsewhere. Unfortunately for the Panthers, no remaining matchup is nearly as good for RB scoring as Seattle was.

Panthers RB D'Onta Foreman (foot) is not listed on the final injury report for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks. He went from no practice on Wednesday to limited participation on Thursday to a full practice on Friday. So he should be ready for his usual workload on Sunday. Foreman has been a volatile fantasy producer since the Christian McCaffrey trade, but this is a plus matchup against Seattle's 29th-ranked RB defense.

Panthers RB D'Onta Foreman (foot) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He said Wednesday that he's "95%" sure he'll be able to play vs. the Seahawks this weekend. We'll see how he's listed on the final injury report tomorrow.

Panthers RB D'Onta Foreman said Wednesday that he's 95% sure he'll play vs. the Seahawks this weekend. Foreman didn't practice on Wednesday, coming off the bye week. We'll see what he's able to do on Thursday.

Panthers RB D'Onta Foreman (foot) did not practice on Wednesday. He was able to battle through this injury back in Week 12, but it's concerning that he's not practicing coming off the bye. If Foreman isn't able to play vs. the Seahawks on Sunday, Chuba Hubbard would likely step in as Carolina's lead back.

Panthers RB D'Onta Foreman managed just 24 yards on 11 carries (2.2 per rush) in Sunday's 13-3 loss at Baltimore. There's no lopsided score to blame for taking work away from Foreman here, and Chuba Hubbard claimed the team's only other 4 RB rushes (for 0 yards). Next week brings another tough defense in a matchup with Denver. The Broncos have proved vulnerable at times against the run, but Carolina's general offensive struggles won't help. We'll see who lines up at QB for the Panthers in that one. Then comes a Week 13 bye.

As expected, Panthers RB Chuba Hubbard (ankle) is active for tonight's game vs. the Falcons. He was listed as questionable but put in full practices on Tuesday and Wednesday, so he should be at least close to 100%. We're projecting D'Onta Foreman to lead Carolina's backfield tonight, but there's some uncertainty here considering we haven't seen a full game with Foreman and Hubbard together since the Christian McCaffrey trade.

Panthers RB Chuba Hubbard (ankle) plans to play tonight against the Falcons, "barring surprise," according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. We'd still bet on RB D'Onta Foreman leading the Carolina backfield in carries in this high-upside matchup.

Panthers RB Chuba Hubbard (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Falcons. He put in full practices on Tuesday and Wednesday, though, so we're expecting Hubbard to play. We'll get Carolina's inactives around 7 pm ET tomorrow.

Panthers RB Chuba Hubbard (ankle) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice. That should have him in line to return for Thursday night's game vs. the Falcons. Hubbard was playing ahead of RB D'Onta Foreman before going down in Week 7. We're projecting Foreman to lead the way against Atlanta, but there's some uncertainty to this backfield in Week 10.
