Chicago Bears running back D'Onta Foreman (ankle, knee) has been downgraded to out ahead of Monday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. He had previously been listed as doubtful. The veteran saw his usage decline with Khalil Herbert's last week as he rushed for just 14 yards on six carries (but did find the end zone once). Roschon Johnson will see additional opportunities in the rushing game behind Herbert and Justin Fields, but he can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Chicago Bears running back D'Onta Foreman (ankle, shin) isn't expected to play in Monday's NFC North meeting with the Vikings. The 27-year-old was ruled out during the Week 11 matchup with the Detroit Lions and didn't practice on Thursday. He logged limited sessions on Friday and Saturday, although it doesn't appear he'll be healthy enough to suit up despite the extra day off. As a result, Khalil Herbert, who hasn't scored a rushing touchdown this season, should remain the top option out of the backfield, with Roschon Johnson coming in for scraps throughout the contest.

Chicago Bears running back D'Onta Foreman (ankle, shin) was listed as limited at practice on Friday after he was a non-participant in the first practice of the week on Thursday. As long as Foreman doesn't suffer a setback on Saturday, he should be able to suit up for the Week 12 contest on Monday night against the Minnesota Vikings. Foreman had just six carries for 14 yards before getting knocked out of the Week 11 loss to the Detroit Lions, but he saved his fantasy day with his fourth rushing touchdown of the year. Khalil Herbert didn't really do anything to take hold of the backfield with Foreman injured last Sunday, so this could remain a frustrating committee backfield against a much-improved Vikings defense on Monday if Foreman is active. The 27-year-old Foreman figures to be a touchdown-dependent RB3/flex if he plays.
Nov 24, 2023 3:11 PM EST
Chicago Bears running back D'Onta Foreman (knee, ankle) did not participate in Thursday's practice. This was the Bears' first official practice of the week, so Foreman still has time to recover before kickoff on Monday night. Nevertheless, it's a suboptimal report out of Chicago as the veteran's fantasy value dwindles following the return of Khalil Herbert. Regardless of his status this week, Foreman should be avoided in all fantasy leagues versus the Minnesota Vikings.
Nov 23, 2023 12:33 PM EST
Chicago Bears running back D'Onta Foreman (ankle) exited Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions and is officially questionable to return. At the time of his departure, he had rushed six times for 14 yards and one touchdown. Losing Foreman doesn't leave the Bears with a shortage of players who can pick up yards on the ground. Khalil Herbert is back from injured reserve this week, Roschon Johnson is capable of handling backup duties, and Justin Fields adds an extra element to the offense with his own legs. Expected Chicago to continue to lean on the run in the second half versus Detroit.
Nov 19, 2023 3:11 PM EST
Chicago Bears running back D'Onta Foreman (ankle) is officially active for Week 11 against the Detroit Lions after coming into Sunday's game with a questionable tag. Foreman has really stepped up as Chicago's starting RB in the last five games, carrying the ball 81 times for 351 yards (4.33 yards per carry) and three touchdowns while also catching seven of 10 targets for 47 yards and an additional score with Khalil Herbert (ankle) on Injured Reserve. However, Herbert has been activated and is making his return against Detroit on Sunday, so Foreman will have his ceiling and floor lowered in a game in which the Bears could face negative game script if they fall behind big early on. Fantasy managers should expect more of a timeshare between Foreman and Herbert moving forward.
Nov 19, 2023 12:01 PM EST
Chicago Bears running back D'Onta Foreman (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is considered questionable to play in Week 11 against the division-rival Detroit Lions this Sunday. Meanwhile, fellow RB Khalil Herbert (ankle) will return this weekend from Injured Reserve after missing the last five games with a high-ankle sprain. There could be a changing of the guard in Chicago's backfield this weekend with Herbert back in the fold, especially if Foreman is ruled inactive. Foreman was very productive in five games as the starter, though, so he has earned more work alongside Herbert when both backs are healthy. If Foreman is unable to play on Sunday, rookie Roschon Johnson could have a sizeable role in what is could quickly become a frustrating backfield in fantasy.
Nov 17, 2023 3:08 PM EST
Chicago Bears running back D'Onta Foreman (ankle) was limited in practice for the second straight day on Thursday. Foreman picked up an ankle injury in last Thursday night's win over the Carolina Panthers and has been managing it at practice this week. The 27-year-old has averaged over four yards per carry and has scored four touchdowns in the last five games with Khalil Herbert (ankle, shin) on Injured Reserve. However, Herbert is trending towards making his return this Sunday against the Detroit Lions. Herbert could be eased back into the backfield, but his presence alone will mean a lower fantasy ceiling and floor for Foreman if Herbert is active. Foreman's fantasy arrow is pointing down now, especially with an injury in tow.
Nov 16, 2023 3:29 PM EST
Chicago Bears running backs Khalil Herbert (ankle/shin) and D'Onta Foreman (ankle) both practiced in a limited fashion on Wednesday. Herbert has been out of action since Week 5 due to an ankle injury, but he has been designated to return from Injured Reserve. He could return this week to face the Detroit Lions, but it's too early to tell. Foreman was not listed on the injury report last week and rushed for 80 yards and a touchdown against the Carolina Panthers in Week 10. He is listed with an ankle injury, so this will be worth monitoring. If both players are active on Sunday, this will be a tough committee to navigate in fantasy football. Herbert was the clear starter early in the year, but Foreman has impressed as the team's lead ball carrier in recent weeks. Both players would have RB2 upside and low floors in Week 11.
Nov 15, 2023 2:55 PM EST
Chicago Bears running back D'Onta Foreman scored his first touchdown since Week 7 in the 16-13 victory over the Panthers. With 21 attempts for 80 yards and two catches for 12 yards, Foreman recorded his fourth game this year with at least 15 rushes, maintaining an average of around four yards per carry in an expanded role. As Khalil Herbert remained sidelined with an ankle injury, the 27-year-old took the lead against his former team and delivered a solid performance. Herbert was a full participant in practice all week and could return, potentially reducing Foreman's role. The Bears face the Lions in Week 11, who allow the second-fewest PPR points per game to running backs this season. If Herbert returns, Foreman becomes a risky play in a challenging matchup, with his role in the game uncertain.
Nov 10, 2023 10:27 AM EST
Chicago Bears running back D'Onta Foreman is coming off the highest number of rushing attempts he's had in a game this year, with 20 carries for 83 yards in the team's 24-17 loss to the Saints in Week 9. The 27-year-old displayed efficiency by averaging over four yards per carry but did not receive any touches in the passing game. Week 10 offers a promising matchup as the Panthers have allowed the second-highest PPR points per game to running backs this season. Khalil Herbert (ankle) has participated fully in practice for two sessions this week and may return from the IR for Thursday Night Football. If Herbert is activated, Foreman's role is likely to be reduced, making him a risky play this week. However, if Herbert misses another game, the veteran running back could be in line for 15+ touches against a defense that has struggled against running backs.
Nov 8, 2023 1:46 PM EST
Chicago Bears running back D'Onta Foreman had a notable performance in the team's 24-17 loss to the Saints, where he recorded a season-high 20 carries for 83 rushing yards. Unfortunately, the veteran back didn't receive any passing targets and couldn't find the end zone, which significantly impacted his fantasy production. Foreman accounted for nearly all of the rushing attempts by running backs in this game, showcasing an efficient 4.15 yards per carry. Khalil Herbert, who has been nursing an ankle injury, is eligible to return from the injured reserve next week and might make his debut on Thursday Night Football. The upcoming matchup is enticing, as the Panthers have surrendered the second-most points per game to running backs this season. Should Herbert make his return, Foreman is likely to see a notable decrease in workload. Nonetheless, he could still serve as a reliable replacement option if Herbert remains sidelined, particularly against a weaker run defense.
Nov 5, 2023 8:02 PM EST
Chicago Bears running back D'Onta Foreman had a breakout game in Week 7, finishing as RB1 in PPR formats. However, in Week 8 during their 30-13 loss to the Chargers, the 27-year-old managed just 10 touches for 36 total yards, playing only 32% of the snaps. Khalil Herbert (ankle) remains on IR, but rookie running back Roschon Johnson returned from his concussion in Week 8. Johnson and Foreman are expected to split the backfield this week, providing a more typical workload compared to their previous game. The Saints pose a tough matchup, as they allow the fourth-fewest points per game to running backs this season. With starter Justin Fields (thumb) out, the Bears' offensive potential is limited, making Foreman a risky play with an uncertain role.
Nov 3, 2023 1:29 PM EST
Chicago Bears running back D'Onta Foreman seized his opportunity in Week 7, amassing over 100 scrimmage yards and scoring three total touchdowns. However, his Week 8 performance saw a significant decline in overall volume due to the return of teammate Roschon Johnson from a concussion. After two games with 15 or more touches, Foreman's workload was reduced to just nine carries for 34 yards and one catch for two yards. Darrynton Evans also saw an increase in involvement, and the game script didn't favor Foreman's performance, as the Bears had limited rushing opportunities. Despite Khalil Herbert (ankle) remaining on IR, the Bears' backfield is currently shrouded in uncertainty, with Foreman, Johnson, and Evans all sharing the workload. Looking ahead to Week 9, the Bears will face the Saints, a team that has allowed the fifth-fewest points to running backs. Given the challenging matchup and uncertain workload distribution, it's advisable to consider alternatives to Foreman if possible.
Oct 30, 2023 12:53 PM EST
Chicago Bears running back D'Onta Foreman is coming off his best performance of the year, racking up 89 yards and two touchdowns on the ground on 16 carries, while also adding three catches for 31 yards and a receiving touchdown. Foreman has a history of explosiveness when given an expanded role in recent years, and this trend continued in their 30-12 win over the Raiders. Khalil Herbert (ankle) remains on injured reserve, but rookie Roschon Johnson has cleared concussion protocol and should be ready to go against the Chargers. While Johnson is expected to have a role this week, Foreman may be in line to keep the lead in the backfield following his standout performance last week. Notably, the Chargers allow the 10th most points per game to running backs, making Foreman a solid option for this week's matchup.
Oct 27, 2023 12:28 PM EST
Chicago Bears running back D'Onta Foreman has been a healthy scratch in four of the last five weeks but will see his first action since Week 1 after Khalil Herbert (ankle), Roschon Johnson (concussion), and Travis Homer (hamstring) have all been ruled out. Even though he has an open runway for the bulk of the backfield work, adding him to the roster isn't the best option unless fantasy managers are absolutely desperate. Justin Fields will probably look to run more often and Foreman will likely replicate what the backfield has done so far this season, which isn't much. Foreman's value isn't zero, but it's still below a flex level.
Oct 13, 2023 4:01 PM EST
Chicago Bears running back D'Onta Foreman, who has been a healthy scratch for the team's last four games, could factor into the game plan in Week 6 versus the Minnesota Vikings due to a rash of injuries in Chicago's backfield, per Gene Chamberlain of SI.com. Starter Khalil Herbert (ankle) was forced from Week 5 with a high-ankle sprain after No. 2 back Roschon Johnson (concussion) was concussed earlier in the 40-20 win. To exacerbate things, satellite back Travis Homer (hamstring) also exited the contest with a hamstring injury to leave the Bears with fullback Khari Blasingame as the backfield's last man standing. With Herbert potentially down multiple weeks, Foreman could be thrust into action even if Johnson is able to pass concussion protocol ahead of next Sunday's divisional tilt. Minnesota has been more vulnerable through the air than on the ground, so the 27-year-old might present a weak case as a plug-and-play RB2, anyway.
Oct 9, 2023 12:40 AM EST
Chicago Bears running back D'Onta Foreman is once again a healthy scratch in Week 4 against the Denver Broncos, as is wide receiver Chase Claypool. This will be the third straight game that Foreman has been inactive, as he has fallen behind rookie Roschon Johnson on the team's running back depth chart. Travis Homer (ankle) was on the team's injury report this week with an ankle injury, but he was given the green light and will serve as the No. 3 on Sunday behind Khalil Herbert and Johnson. In the season opener, Foreman saw just five carries for 16 yards and caught two of his three targets for eight yards.
Oct 1, 2023 11:46 AM EST
Chicago Bears running back D'Onta Foreman (coach's decision) is a healthy scratch for Week 3 versus the Kansas City Chiefs. This is the second consecutive week that the veteran running back has been made inactive. Chicago will proceed with a combination of Khalil Herbert and Roschon Johnson leading its backfield.
Sep 24, 2023 3:31 PM EST
Chicago Bears running back D'Onta Foreman will be make his regular season debut as a new member of the Bears Week 1 against the Packers. The free agent signing is coming off a season with the Panthers where he rushed for 914 yards, including five 100-yard performances. Foreman will be looking to replace the production from since-departed running back David Montgomery but teammate Khalil Herbert is pegged to receive the first crack at the lion's share of the carries. Foreman is certainly worth a bench stash in deeper leagues but will be a very risky fantasy start in Week 1.
