Khalil Herbert Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2024

Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

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.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert (ankle, shin) is not listed on the final Week 11 injury report. He got in full practices on Thursday and Friday and will play vs. the Lions this weekend for the first time since Week 5. RB D'Onta Foreman (ankle) is listed as questionable for that one after a limited week of practice. We're betting on Foreman playing, but it sure looks like Herbert is the healthier player right now. That makes him the preferred fantasy start in this backfield, although neither guy is an exciting play vs. Detroit's eighth-ranked RB defense.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert (ankle, shin) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. He was a full-go all last week before missing the Thursday nighter vs. the Panthers, so we can't say yet that Herbert will definitely play vs. the Lions this weekend. We'll see how he's listed on the final injury report tomorrow.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert (ankle, shin) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He's been working his way back from the ankle injury, but the shin is new this week. He remains uncertain for Sunday's game vs. the Lions. We'll keep you updated on Herbert's progression throughout the week.

Bears RB D’Onta Foreman saw 21 carries for 80 rushing yards and a TD in Week 10 vs. the Panthers. He also contributed 2 catches for 12 yards as a receiver on Thursday night. This contest was the third time in four games that Foreman has rushed for 80 or more yards. He’s played well as the Bears RB1 with Khalil Herbert (ankle) out of the lineup since Week 5. But as good as Foreman has been, it’s worth remembering that Herbert practiced fully in the three days leading up to Thursday without being officially activated off IR. It’s reasonable to expect Herbert will return for Week 11 vs. the Lions and relegate Foreman back to spelling duty. Neither will be particularly appealing fantasy options against a Lions defense that ranks as the sixth-toughest RB matchup per our adjusted fantasy points allowed.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert (ankle) was not activated from IR and won't play vs. the Panthers today. Herbert was listed as a full participant in practice all week, so he should be able to return for Week 11. His absence tonight leaves D'Onta Foreman as the favorite for lead duties against Carolina's 31st-ranked RB defense. He's carried 15+ times in three of the last four weeks and is a solid RB2 play tonight. Roschon Johnson will handle No. 2 RB duties and is on the RB3/Flex radar in this plus matchup. See where the Bears land in the updated Week 10 RB Rankings.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Panthers. He was a full participant in practice all week, so he seems likely to play. But the questionable tag is an indication that Herbert still isn't at 100%. Don't be surprised if he falls short of the 10.2 carries per game he averaged before going down -- especially considering how well RB D'Onta Foreman played over the past few weeks. Herbert is still worth considering as a RB3 or flex play vs. Carolina's 31st-ranked RB defense.

The Bears listed RB Khalil Herbert (ankle) as a full practice participant both Monday and Tuesday after designating him to return from IR at the beginning of the week. They'll still need to officially activate him to make Herbert eligible to play Thursday night against the Panthers, but things seem to be trending in that direction. If Herbert does return after four games down with the ankle sprain, it'll set up a crowded backfield situation -- with D'Onta Foreman and Roschon Johnson -- for a high-ceiling RB matchup. That would lower the floor for every player involved. We'll keep an eye out for hints at Chicago's RB usage ahead of Thursday night's game.

The Bears on Monday designated RB Khalil Herbert to return from IR. Herbert missed the past four games after suffering a high-ankle sprain against Washington. His designation doesn't necessarily mean he'll return to the active roster for Week 10. But it does allow him to return to practice and give Chicago three weeks to decide whether to activate him. We'll have to see how Herbert fits in with D'Onta Foreman, Roschon Johnson, and Darrynton Evans once he returns, but Herbert had been the backfield's top guy before the injury.

Bears RB D’Onta Foreman totaled 83 rushing yards on 20 carries in Week 9’s loss vs. the Saints. His teammate Roschon Johson did next to nothing in Sunday’s contest, ending with 3 touches for a combined 15 total yards. At this point, the Bears’ backfield belongs to Foreman. The veteran has averaged 15 carries, 67.8 rushing yards, and 13.4 PPR points per game over the past four contests in the absence of normal start Khalil Herbert. It’s worth noting that Herbert (high ankle sprain) will be eligible to return from IR for Week 10’s contest vs. the Panthers. We’ll see if he can make it back for the Thursday night bout, but we’ll be excited to start whichever Bears RB gets most of the work. The Panthers are the second-easiest scoring matchup for RBs on the season per our adjusted fantasy points allowed.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert has been placed on IR, knocking him out for at least the next four games. He'll miss contests against the Vikings, Raiders, Chargers, and Saints and will be eligible to return in Week 10 against the Panthers. We'd try to hang on to Herbert, but he might be a casualty in shallow-bench leagues as we work through the bye weeks.

Bears RBs Khalil Herbert (ankle), Roschon Johnson, and Travis Homer (hamstring) are out for Sunday's game vs. the Vikings. That leaves Chicago with RBs D'Onta Foreman and Darrynton Evans, who spent last season with the Bears but was just re-signed earlier this week. Foreman should handle the majority of the backfield work against a middling Minnesota run defense. See where he lands in the Week 6 RB Rankings.

Bears RB Roschon Johnson (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's now an extreme long shot to be cleared in time for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings. With RB Khalil Herbert (ankle) out and RB Travis Homer (hamstring) likely out, Chicago will be down to RBs D'Onta Foreman and Darrynton Evans, who spent last season with the Bears but was just re-signed earlier this week. Foreman should handle the majority of the backfield work against Minnesota.

Bears RB Roschon Johnson (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. That doesn't bode well for his chances of being cleared in time for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings. We know that RB Khalil Herbert (ankle) will miss that one. And RB Travis Homer (hamstring) also missed Wednesday's practice. It's looking like D'Onta Foreman will be up as Chicago's lead back against Minnesota.
