What You Need to Know:

  • Hubbard jumped into the lineup after Christian McCaffrey went down last season, drawing more than 50% of Carolina’s carries in each of the 5 games McCaffrey missed following his Week 3 injury. He tallied 63.1% carry share and 9.9% target share over that span.
  • The distribution changed, however, the next time McCaffrey went down. With McCaffrey out for the final 5 games, Hubbard garnered just 41% of carries and 4.3% of targets.
  • Carolina signed RB D’Onta Foreman to a 1-year deal at the start of free agency.
  • Among 61 RBs with 70+ carries last season, Foreman ranked 22nd in Pro Football Focus’ elusive rating. Hubbard sat 47th. Foreman also easily beat Hubbard in receiving grade (albeit on just 10 targets), rushing grade (38th vs. 41st) and yards after contact per attempt (19th vs. 45th).
  • The Panthers acquired RB Ameer Abdullah from Minnesota in the middle of last year and worked him ahead of Hubbard in the passing game during the 2nd McCaffrey-less stretch. They then let Abdullah walk in free agency.
  • With 37 targets and 25 catches as a rookie, Hubbard already leads Foreman on career numbers in each category. Foreman has totaled just 22 targets and 18 receptions through 4 seasons of action. (He missed all of 2019.) His 239 receiving yards leads Hubbard (174), however.
  • McCaffrey has lost 23 games to injury over the past 2 seasons. HC Matt Rhule has spoken of some plans for keeping his star back healthier, but has only specifically referred to holding McCaffrey out of preseason games and decreasing his practice exposure.
  • Panthers HC Matt Rhule said RB Chuba Hubbard has “really improved” his pass protection. It’s only relevant if Christian McCaffrey misses more time, but it’s a nice development for the 23-year-old.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Hubbard carried handcuff upside into his rookie season and got quick work after Christian McCaffrey missed significant time for the 2nd straight year. But the Panthers siphoned work from him the 2nd time McCaffrey went down and then imported a rushing upgrade over Ameer Abdullah in free agency. Summer should start to reveal how they view Hubbard vs. D’Onta Foreman on the depth chart. At best, though, this is an unclear handcuff situation. That makes it better to avoid, especially if considering the guy who already disappointed once in the role.

D'Onta Foreman, RB CAR

10:04pm EST 12/24/22

Foreman, Panthers RBs run wild on Lions

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) 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.
