What You Need to Know:

  • A Kansas transfer, Herbert (5’9, 210) excelled in Virginia Tech’s zone-heavy rushing scheme.
  • He posted 155-1,183-8 as a 5th-year senior. He added just 10 catches, albeit for 179 yards and 1 score.
  • Chicago selected him in Round 6 of the ’21 draft.
  • When David Montgomery missed Week 5 through Week 8, Herbert posted 75, 97, 100 and 72 rushing yards.
  • He averaged 22 opportunities (carries + targets) over the 4-game stretch, showing a physical style of ball.
  • When Montgomery returned in Week 9, Herbert totaled only 22 carries over the final 9 games.
  • As we saw in college, Herbert garnered limited pass-game opportunities. He caught 14 of 16 targets for only 96 yards.
  • The Bears canned HC Matt Nagy and brought in HC Matt Eberflus and OC Luke Getsy.
  • Getsy has never been an NFL play-caller. The Athletic’s Adam Jahns wrote in May that the team is “transitioning to a run-heavy team with outside-zone.” Chicago’s likely to roster a FB (Khari Blasingame).
  • Montgomery enters the summer as the clear favorite for early-down work. But with a new staff, Herbert gets a clean slate to try and carve out a secondary role.
  • Chicago’s O-line and supporting cast just doesn’t look ripe for fantasy production.
  • The O-line projects as a bottom-10 unit; QB Justin Fields is an asset but scoring figures to be inconsistent with a lack of pass-catching depth.
  • Adam Jahns of The Athletic writes that RB Khalil Herbert “looks poised for a larger role” in year 2.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Herbert was impressive in spot-start action as a rookie. But barring a David Montgomery injury, he’ll likely remain a lightly-used #2 behind the veteran.

Consider Herbert one of the few clear-cut handcuffs league-wide, though, and a potential RB1 if given the opportunity.

Khalil Herbert, RB CHI

6:20am EDT 9/26/22

Herbert has big game in relief

Bears RB Khalil Herbert racked up a 20-157-2 rushing line in Sunday's win over the Texans, taking over after RB David Montgomery left in the 1st quarter with a right-leg injury. HC Matt Eberflus called Montgomery "day to day" afterward, so we'll see about his status for Week 4. This might have been the kind of performance (including 7.9 yards per rush) that commands work for the 2nd-year back even when Montgomery's available. A Week 4 matchup with the Giants holds rushing upside as well, especially for an offense that looks vehemently opposed to throwing the ball: 37 run plays vs. 25 dropbacks in Week 3.

Bears HC Matt Eberflus labeled RB David Montgomery "day to day" after Sunday's win over the Texans. Eberflus added that Montgomery has a “couple things going on” with his lower leg injury but said he’s “good” right now. We'll look for further updates on Montgomery's status. RB Khalil Herbert was awesome in his play vs. Houston, rushing 20 times for 157 yards and 2 TDs.

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook injured his left shoulder in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Lions and was quickly ruled out. Cook, of course, has a long history of shoulder injuries. We'll update his status when we know more. RB Alexander Mattison will take over as Minnesota's workhorse.

Bears RB David Montgomery hurt his right leg in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Texans. He went to the blue medical tent and then eventually to the locker room. We'll update Montgomery's status when we know more. His absence would leave Khalil Herbert as Chicago's lead back.

Update: Montgomery has a right knee/ankle injury and is doubtful to return, the team announced.

View all David Montgomery Shark Bites »

RB David Montgomery was the lone bright spot for Chicago in Week 2, rushing 15 times for 122 yards. The Bears trailed by double digits for most of this one, so fantasy owners should feel fortunate with the outcome. Montgomery ceded only 5 opportunities to Khalil Herbert (4 carries, 1 target) and looked at his best with 8 forced missed tackles (per Pro Football Focus). He’ll look to keep rolling at home against a Texans D that just limited Denver to 16 points.

Dynasty Write-up
The Bears have dumped Tarik Cohen this offseason and added Darrynton Evans, who couldn't finish out his rookie deal in Tennessee. Herbert should be well set up as the #2 to David Montgomery. Herbert showed his all-around skill set when pressed into duty as a rookie, averaging 4.4 yards across 78 carries and catching 9 balls over a 4-game stretch.
