Foreman is recovering from an achilles tear and there's a possibility he will start the season on the PUP

Week 15: at New York Jets

All RB vs NYJ

FBG says: Good matchup. Coming off back to back 100+ rushing yard games, Lamar Miller was disappointing last week against the Colts. At halftime, Miller had amassed negative five yards on six carries and was removed in the red zone in favor of Alfred Blue, who managed to punch in a three-yard touchdown. Miller redeemed himself somewhat, finishing with 33 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries. Miller had been on a roll, with four 100+ yard games in his last six games while scoring three touchdowns. This week he gets a Jets defense that ranks 12th in points allowed to opposing running backs. The Jets run defense had been on a noticeable slide, allowing back to back big games to LeSean McCoy and Sony Michel, but they managed to bounce this past week, holding the Bills running backs to 75 yards. The Jets have had problems containing quick running backs that can bounce it outside and get past the edge of the line, and Miller certainly has the skillset to give them problems. DeShaun Watson becomes the x-factor, as the Jets were just torched by Josh Allen to the tune of 101 yards rushing and a touchdown on only nine carries. Watson is averaging 31.5 rushing yards per game and has exceeded 30+ rushing yards in nine of his 13 games. He is in line to have a big game on the ground, which makes him one of the better quarterback options this week. The New York Jets rushing defense was once thought of as the leagues best under former coach Rex Ryan, but they have since become one of the league's worst units, ranking 27th in the league and giving up 132 rushing yards per game. The Jets have allowed opposing running backs to average 4.6 yards per carry on the season and have held their opponents to under 125 yards rushing only twice on the season. While they did a good job containing Buffalo's running backs last week (in fairness, LeSean McCoy exited the game early with an injury), they had no plan to stop quarterback Josh Allen, who lit them up for 109 rushing yards and a touchdown. This week they will face a similar problem with Deshaun Watson at the helm for the Texans. He is one of the leagues better running quarterbacks and should have a field day finding room against a weak Jets pass rush. While the Jets have a superstar in Leonard Williams, he cannot make up for the lack of talent around him, with Nathan Shepard, Steve McLendon and Henry Anderson finding themselves overmatched on a weekly basis. The Texans run game has been rolling in the second half of the season, and Lamar Miller poses matchup problems for the Jets defensive line. This game sets up poorly for the Jets in a number of ways, but the biggest issue they will have this week is running the ball and stopping the run.

Texans | D'Onta Foreman unlikely to play (Sat Dec 8, 09:35 PM) - Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman will likely be inactive against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 14, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

Our View: Foreman could provide help to the Texans as fresh legs in the playoffs, but he isn't going to help our fantasy teams in our playoffs.

Texans | D'Onta Foreman not on injury report (Fri Dec 7, 06:27 PM) - Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 7, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

Our View: Foreman isn't going to take a lot of work away from Lamar Miller at this point, but it's a good sign for his recovery that he's back on the field, and hopefully we'll get to see him take a few touches before the end of the season to evaluate how close to his pre-injury self he is, as there's no good case of a running back getting all the way back from an achilles injury.
