What You Need to Know:

  • The Panthers signed Foreman right at the start of free agency, but for only $2 million on a 1-year deal with less than $1 million guaranteed.
  • It’s not yet clear what his role will be. "He's a big back and I think that's important to have at winning time to put games away, to get the 3rd-and-1, 4th-and-1," HC Matt Rhule said. "But I also think he's a guy that can catch. He's a guy who when you watch what he did last year at Tennessee, you saw great vision, you saw a guy that made plays, so he's a great complement to that room."
  • Foreman has just 18 receptions across 4 seasons of action. (He missed 2019.) So it’s technically true that he can catch. And his 13.3 yards per reception is a stellar rate. But expecting a meaningful receiving role seems foolish.
  • Carolina lists Foreman at 235 pounds, Christian McCaffrey at 205 and Chuba Hubbard at 210 (and 1 inch taller than Foreman). It’s pretty clear how Foreman differs from his new backfield mates.
  • Foreman led Tennessee’s backfield after Derrick Henry went down last season. It took him 3 games to take over, but from Week 12 on Foreman averaged 18.3 rushes per contest.
  • From Week 9 (1st game after Henry’s injury) on, Foreman ranked 9th among RBs in carries and 10th in rushing yards. Among 59 RBs with 40+ carries over that span, he tied for 27th in Pro Football Focus’ elusive rating and ranked just 44th in rushing grade.
  • The Panthers return Chuba Hubbard, a 4th-round pick in 2021 who wound up leading the team in carries last year. That’s because Christian McCaffrey lost 10 games to injury, a year after losing 13 to other injuries.
  • Hubbard trailed Foreman in PFF rushing grade, receiving grade and elusive rating for the season. Among 61 RBs with 70+ carries for the year, Foreman ranked 22nd in elusive rating, McCaffrey 27th and Hubbard 47th.
  • Rhule said the team added Foreman this offseason because they want to ensure a “well-rounded offense.” McCaffrey’s carry shares had typically lived in the 70%+ range in recent seasons but might dip in pursuit of keeping him healthier.


Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Even if Carolina lightens Christian McCaffrey’s rushing load a bit, we should expect him to dominate backfield work when healthy. That said, his 23 missed games over the past 2 years highlight the handcuff opportunity here. The fact that Carolina quickly signed Foreman at the start of free agency would seem to bolster his case for being that #2 RB ahead of Chuba Hubbard. But it’s worth noting that he got just $2 million on a 1-year deal – with less than half of that guaranteed. And in just 1 season, Hubbard has more career catches than Foreman has collected through 4. So make sure you treat Foreman as a potential handcuff rather than the clear backup to McCaffrey.

D'Onta Foreman, RB CAR

Foreman active

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.

Dynasty Write-up
Foreman re-emerged as a volume ball-carrier down the stretch in 2021. Then in 2022, post-Christian McCaffrey trade, Foreman again proved his worth with 5 outings of 100+ yards. He’ll hit free agency as a 27-year-old this spring.
