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.

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 Chuba Hubbard (ankle) is out for this weekend's game vs. Atlanta. So much for that ankle injury being minor. We'll see if Hubbard can make it back for Week 9, but his absence on Sunday leaves D'Onta Foreman as Carolina's lead back. Interim HC Steve Wilks said Friday that undrafted rookie RB Raheem Blackshear will have an increased role this week, but we're expecting Foreman to handle most of the backfield work.

RBs D'Onta Foreman and Chuba Hubbard are expected to compete for the lead job in Carolina's Christian McCaffrey-less backfield, according to the Associated Press' Josh Dubow. Dubow adds that RB Raheem Blackshear could be "potentially in the mix for more work." Foreman has carried 12 times for 37 yards (3.1 YPC) and failed to see a single target through 6 games. Hubbard has 6 carries for 34 yards (5.7 YPC) and 1 catch on 1 target for 1 yard. They've both played exactly 31 snaps, while Hubbard has a slight edge in pass routes (17 to 16). Our initial guess is that this will be something close to a 50/50 committee -- and we'll see about Blackshear. In the league's worst offense, Foreman and Hubbard will struggle for more than low-end RB3 value unless 1 of them emerges as the clear lead back.
