Khalil Herbert Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

The Bears have agreed to a three-year deal with RB D'Andre Swift, according to multiple reports. Chicago will pay Swift $24 million over that span, with $15.3 million of that guaranteed. That should position Swift as the backfield leader for at least the next two seasons -- assuming he stays healthy, of course. Swift opened his lone Philly season barely playing behind Kenneth Gainwell but then exploded when Gainwell missed Week 2. Swift worked as the lead back the rest of the way, averaging a career-high 41.3 carries per game but a career-low 2.4 receptions per contest. He should immediately step ahead of Bears incumbents Khalil Herbert and Roschon Johnson as both a runner and receiver. If the QB shift to Caleb Williams comes to fruition, then Swift would gain target upside over what Philly presented (or what Justin Fields would present). Swift has been a solid-to-good value in early best ball drafting. Expect his ADP to rise now that he has found starter money on the market. Swift's RB31 position in Underdog Fantasy to date gives him plenty of room to move up the board and still be worth targeting. Check our RB rankings to see where he lands.

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.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert (back, personal) is questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Packers. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and then sidelined on Friday. Herbert’s absence would presumably leave Chicago’s backfield to Roschon Johnson and D’Onta Foreman, who has not played the past two weeks.

Bears RB D'Onta Foreman is a surprise inactive for today's game vs. the Falcons. He missed last week's game due to a personal issue but was left off the final injury report this week. Chicago will again roll with RBs Khalil Herbert and Roschon Johnson today. Herbert tallied 20 carries and two targets to Johnson's nine carries and three targets last week.

Bears RB D'Onta Foreman (personal) practiced all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report for Sunday’s game vs. the Falcons. It’s entirely unclear how work will be divvied between Foreman, Khalil Herbert, and Roschon Johnson, making it a situation to try to avoid in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

Bears RB D'Onta Foreman (personal) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. That should put him on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Falcons -- and return Chicago's backfield to an ugly three-man committee.

Bears RB D’Onta Foreman (personal) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Cardinals. That leaves Chicago’s backfield to Roschon Johnson and Khalil Herbert. We don’t know exactly how work will be divvied between them, but they both have enough upside against Arizona’s 31st-ranked RB defense to consider as RB3 or flex plays. See where Johnson and Herbert sit in the Week 16 RB Rankings.

Bears RB D'Onta Foreman (personal) is not expected to play vs. the Cardinals today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. No word yet on Foreman's status for Week 17 and beyond. His absence will turn Chicago's backfield from a three-man committee to a two-man committee with Khalil Herbert and Roschon Johnson. We don't know exactly how work will be divvied between them, but they're both in the RB3 mix now against Arizona's 31st-ranked RB defense.

Bears RB D’Onta Foreman (personal) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Cardinals. He returned to a limited practice on Friday after sitting out on Thursday. We’ll look for more info on Foreman’s situation but won’t get Chicago’s inactives until a little before 3 pm ET on Sunday. Foreman’s absence would make RBs Khalil Herbert and Roschon Johnson more attractive fantasy plays in a plus matchup.

RB D'Onta Foreman led the Bears' backfield in Sunday's win over the Lions, coming off the team's Week 13 bye. Foreman handled 11 of 15 RB carries (73.3%) and all 3 of the HB targets. He doubled both Roschon Johnson and Khalil Herbert in routes and played 55% of the offensive snaps. Foreman should be considered the leader heading into Week 15's visit to Cleveland. HC Matt Eberflus said ahead of the Detroit game that he'd be willing to ride the hot hand, so we'll see if the usage changes at all before projecting beyond Week 15. If Foreman does lead again, he could be a difference maker for a high-upside matchup with the Cardinals in Week 16. Johnson and Herbert are mere bench stashes for now.

Bears RB D'Onta Foreman (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. That puts him on track to play vs. the Lions this weekend. Foreman, Roschon Johnson, and Khalil Herbert haven't played a healthy game together since Week 1, so it's tough to project what this backfield will look like on Sunday. Johnson dominated playing time last time out, registering a 75% snap rate, making him the best bet among these three. But it's a backfield to ideally avoid, especially against Detroit's 11th-ranked RB defense.

Though Week 12's showdown between the Bears and Vikings didn't provide much entertainment, it did shed some light on Chicago's backfield situation. Rookie RB Roschon Johnson ended Monday night with a season-high 75 scrimmage yards on 15 touches. He played on 74.6% of the team's snaps, including all 13 third-down situations. Before this contest, Johnson had never played on over 50% of the Bears' offensive snaps and had just two games with more than 10 touches. His teammate and typical starter Khalil Herbert took a back seat and only played on 15 snaps in the game, seeing 6 carries and 2 catches for a combined 38 yards. Herbert did start but got less than half as many snaps as he played in his Week 11 return from IR -- despite D'Onta Foreman being inactive -- and lost work as a runner and receiver. And there's been no indication of a re-injury or other physical limitation for Herbert. It's just one game, but we'll have to at least enter Week 14 (after the bye) assuming Johnson will now work ahead of Herbert. We'll see about Foreman's availability, after he managed two limited practices ahead of Monday night's game.

Bears RB D'Onta Foreman (ankle, shin) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Vikings. RBs Khalil Herbert, Roschon Johnson, and Travis Homer are dressed for Chicago. Herbert should handle the majority of the early-down work, with Johnson spelling him on passing downs in particular.

Bears RB D'Onta Foreman (ankle, shin) is listed as doubtful for Monday night's game vs. the Vikings. He got in two limited practices this week, which should put him on track for a Week 13 return. Foreman's absence on Monday should leave RB Khalil Herbert as Chicago's clear lead early-down back, with RB Roschon Johnson playing on passing downs.

Bears RB D'Onta Foreman (ankle, shin) did not practice on Thursday. His absence in Monday night's game vs. the Vikings would leave Chicago's backfield to Khalil Herbert and Roschon Johnson. We'll keep you updated on Foreman's status over the next few days.

Bears RB D'Onta Foreman (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Lions. He was listed as questionable after a limited week of practice. Between the ankle issue and the return of RB Khalil Herbert, Foreman would be a shaky Week 11 fantasy start.

Bears RB D'Onta Foreman (ankle) is expected to play vs. the Lions on Sunday, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Foreman was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable, so it's safe to assume that he won't be at 100%. That, plus the return of RB Khalil Herbert, leaves Foreman as a poor Week 11 fantasy play.

On Saturday, ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted that Bears RB Khalil Herbert has been officially activated off IR ahead of Week 11 vs. the Lions. Herbert's return to action will mark his first game back since injuring his ankle in Week 5 vs. the Commanders. This news lowers the fantasy upside of fellow RBs D'Onta Foreman and Roschon Johnson as we expect the Bears' backfield to be deployed in more of a committee approach. See where each player appears in our current RB rankings for Week 11.
