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.

David Montgomery, RB CHI

4:35pm EST 1/1/23

Montgomery gets only 8 touches

Bears RB David Montgomery carried just 6 times for 24 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions. He added 2 catches for 12 targets, with Chicago completing only 7 passes all game. It was a particularly disappointing performance for the whole offense a week after Detroit allowed 527 total yards to the Panthers. RB Khalil Herbert also factored in for 5-31 rushing. Chicago faces Minnesota in Week 18, a matchup that afforded Montgomery just 12-20-1 rushing in Week 5, but also 4 catches for 62 yards.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert (hip) will be designated to return from IR and practice this week. HC Matt Eberflus hinted last week that Herbert was on track to return for Week 16's meeting with the Bills. He averaged 9.3 carries and 54 rushing yards over his last 6 games alongside David Montgomery but totaled just 2 targets during that stretch. Herbert ranked 28th among RBs in non-PPR points across those 6 weeks; 31st in PPR. He's worth owning in most fantasy leagues -- but more as a Montgomery handcuff than Week 16 starter. Herbert's return is a slight ding to Montgomery's fantasy value.

Bears RB David Montgomery scored a TD rushing and another receiving in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. He took 12 carries for 53 yards (4.4 per rush) and caught all 3 of his targets for 38 yards. Montgomery next faces a Bills defense that got run over by Raheem Mostert on Saturday night. then comes a rematch with the Lions, who only allowed Montgomery 44 total yards on 9 carries and 1 catch in Week 10. The team expects Khalil Herbert to come off IR in Week 16, which will affect Montgomery's outlook.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert (hip) is on track to come off IR when first eligible next week. "He’s getting ready to go,” HC Matt Eberflus said Monday. “He’s been hitting his max speeds. His jumps look good, and the power in his legs look great. So, we’re excited about that." Herbert averaged 11.3 carries over his last 4 games, so he could be useful in deeper non-PPR leagues down the stretch. He, of course, is also the David Montgomery handcuff once healthy.

The Bears have placed RB Khalil Herbert on IR for the hip injury that knocked him out of Sunday's loss to the Lions. With rookie Tristan Ebner now the only other healthy RB on the roster, David Montgomery should be set up for plenty of work over at least the next 4 weeks, starting with a terrific matchup against the Falcons this week. We'll see about the expected return timeline for Herbert.

Dynasty Write-up
Herbert missed time with a hip injury in 2022, but he proved highly efficient in limited action. There’s some intrigue here, as David Montgomery is scheduled to hit free agency. Chicago is flush with cap space, though, and it wouldn’t be hard for them to either retain Montgomery, or add backfield competition.
