Bottom Line

There could be opportunity for Foreman in Cleveland if Nick Chubb doesn’t start the season on time or suffers any in-season setbacks. But Foreman’s lack of receiving and replacement-level status means you shouldn’t expect difference-making contributions. He’s best applied as a RB5-6 in best ball and deep reserve in non-PPR redraft leagues.

What We Learned Last Year

  • Foreman can produce on the ground when given the chance. Actually, we didn’t learn that last year, because he also did so for two other teams the previous two seasons.
  • His 2023 time in Chicago included a RB1 overall finish in a Week 7 win over the Raiders, as well as an RB13 finish in a narrow Week 10 victory over Carolina.
  • Both games fell within a five-week stretch that saw Foreman garner 15+ carries four times. (The other was a lopsided loss at the Chargers.)
    • Foreman averaged 16.2 carries and 70.2 yards per game over that span, with 4.3 yards per carry.
    • His RB1 week also included a 3-31-1 receiving line on five targets, but Foreman caught just eight other passes for the year.
  • Interestingly, the Bears included Foreman in Week 1, giving carries to him, Khalil Herbert, and Roschon Johnson – but then deactivated Foreman for the next four games.
    • A Herbert high-ankle sprain in Week 5 presented the midseason opportunity.
    • Foreman suffered his own ankle injury in Week 10, though, aggravated it in Week 11, missed Week 12 (ahead of the bye), and then ceded the backfield to Herbert and Johnson the rest of the way.

What to Expect in 2024

  • Foreman signed a one-year deal with the Browns for just under $1.3 million in March. That’s less than he got in one-year pacts with the Bears and Panthers the previous two years.
  • Foreman joins an uncertain backfield in the wake of Nick Chubb’s injury.
    • Chubb tore the ACL and MCL – along with other damage – in his left knee last September and required multiple surgeries.
    • Neither he nor the team has presented a timeline yet for Chubb’s expected return to full action.
  • Jerome Ford led the backfield in touches and fantasy production after Chubb’s injury last, sharing work with Kareem Hunt. The team hasn’t re-signed Hunt this offseason.
  • The Browns did import RB Nyheim Hines. Though he’s coming off his own July 2023 ACL tear and likely comes in as more returner than backfield contributor.
  • Foreman ranked among the top two RBs on his team in carries each of the past three seasons and averaged at least 11.9 per game each time.
  • But he has also averaged just 0.7 receptions per game for his career. And his lack of a second contract after each of the past three seasons positions Foreman as a replaceable player.

Nick Chubb, RB CLE

10:07am EDT 4/11/24

What does Nick Chubb's reworked 2024 deal tell us?

The Browns and RB Nick Chubb have agreed to a salary adjustment for 2024, the final year on his contract. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the change drops Chubb's cap hit from $15.85 million to $6.275 million -- with incentives that could bring his salary back up to $12.2 million. You could read this several different ways. It's positive that Cleveland didn't simply cut Chubb, which would have cost just $4 million in dead cap space, according to Spotrac. But Chubb's new salary knocks him to 11th among RBs in total money for 2024, behind Tony Pollard and Aaron Jones; barely ahead of Devin Singletary and Miles Sanders. Chubb no doubt believes he can achieve at least some of the performance incentives and drive that number back up. But it also appears he wasn't willing to test the open market for higher 2024 earnings. Ultimately, it's way too early for fantasy managers to know what we can expect from the veteran RB. Chubb's multi-ligament knee injury in September has required surgeries then and in November. We haven't seen much on his return timeline. The Browns, meanwhile, have added RBs D'Onta Foreman and Nyheim Hines this offseason. Both signed small, one-year deals that don't come close to guaranteeing offensive roles. (Hines probably arrives to primarily return kicks.) But they join Jerome Ford and Pierre Strong as backfield insurance. We're staying away from Chubb at his RB27 best ball ADP, which still has him ahead of Javonte Williams, Austin Ekeler, and Zamir White, among others. The crowded depth chart behind Chubb also makes it a risky backfield for investing in backups.

The Browns signed RB D'Onta Foreman to a one-year deal. Although he averaged just 3.9 yards per carry in Chicago last year, Foreman ranked 22nd in Pro Football Focus rushing grade, 22nd in Elusive Rating, and 26th in Rush Yards Over Expected Per Attempt among 49 qualifying RBs. That followed a career-high 914 rushing yards on 4.5 yards per attempt for the Panthers in 2022. Foreman is a quality depth addition for a Browns team that has RB Nick Chubb working his way back from a significant knee injury that will likely cost him at least part of the 2024 season. Foreman will team up with RB Jerome Ford for however long Chubb is sidelined.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert (back, personal) is active for today’s game vs. the Packers. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and then sidelined on Friday – although it’s unclear if the back or personal issue kept him out. RB D’Onta Foreman is a healthy scratch again today, suggesting little concern about Herbert’s status.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert (back, personal) is expected to play vs. the Packers today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Herbert was added to the injury report on Thursday and then sidelined on Friday, so he comes with elevated risk in Week 18 fantasy lineups. We'll see whether RB D'Onta Foreman is active for this one after missing the last two games.

Foreman signed a one-year deal with only $1 million guaranteed last March. He exceeded expectations with 425 yards and 4 scores in only 9 games. In 2024, his value will come down to the health of Nick Chubb (knee).
