Shark Bites

The Bears picked up RB Khalil Herbert in Round 6 of the 2021 NFL Draft. After an underwhelming stint at Kansas, Herbert transferred to Virginia Tech and enjoyed a breakout 2020. As a 22-year-old senior, the Florida native tallied 154-1,182-8 in 11 games. His 7.68 YPC ranked 4th nationally. On film, Herbert excelled both after contact and as a contact-dodger. He also exits college with only 1 career fumble (507 career touches). On the negative side, Herbert is still largely unproven in the receiving game. He at least managed 17.9 YPC on his 10 receptions last season. In Chicago, he could be fighting Damien Williams for a 2021 roster spot.

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 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.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert beat David Montgomery by 1 carry and 20 yards in Sunday's 31-30 loss to the Lions. Herbert rushed 10 times for 57 yards, while Montgomery went for 37 yards on 9 attempts. Montgomery drew the only target between them, catching it for 7 yards. A Week 11 trip to Atlanta presents positive conditions for both players, though QB Justin Fields' rushing rebirth has lowered the ceiling for the RBs.

Bears RB Khalil Herbert was knocked out by a hip injury late in Sunday's loss to the Lions. We'll update his status when we know more.
