- Should you start Titans running back D'Onta Foreman in fantasy football for Week 11? With Jeremy McNichols out, our expert breaks down what to expect from Foreman below.
When the Titans signed Adrian Peterson in the wake of Derrick Henry’s injury, fantasy football managers rushed to roster AP as well as Henry’s backup. Jeremy McNichols.
The Titans later added D’Onta Foreman, who to the dismay of those fantasy football managers who likely spent the No. 1 waiver wire priority or a decent chunk of their FAAB to acquire Peterson and/or McNichols, has emerged as the lead running back in Tennessee.
Now McNichols has been ruled out for Week 11. So how does that impact the outlook for Foreman? Our analysts weigh in below.
Start D’Onta Foreman In Fantasy?

D’Onta Foreman is now a low-end RB2 option with Jeremey McNichols ruled out for Week 11. Foreman has become the favorite to inherit the Derrick Henry role after outplaying Adrian Peterson the past couple of games anyway.
This is also a #RevengeGame spot for Foreman as the Texans cut him following his season-ending Achilles injury in 2019.
Verdict: Start D’Onta Foreman as low-end RB2
D’Onta Foreman led Tennessee’s backfield for the second week in a row last week with 11 carries for 30 yards and reeled in two of two targets for 48 yards, tallying nearly three times the scrimmage yards of Adrian Peterson and Jeremy McNichols combined.
Foreman is the lone fantasy asset worth rostering from this depth chart. I like his upside in this revenge game against the Texans, who rank 10th-worst against fantasy running backs so far this season.
