Khalil Herbert

24-Year-Old Running BackRB
Chicago Bears
2022 Fantasy Outlook
A sixth-round pick last year, Herbert used Tarik Cohen's absence as a springboard to a roster spot, and when David Montgomery got hurt as well, the rookie emerged as a capable lead back. After getting only nine offensive snaps through the first four games, Herbert piled up 344 rushing yards and a touchdown in a four-week stretch in the season's second month, but then didn't see more than four carries in a game once Montgomery was healthy again. Herbert is a compact, powerful runner with patience and burst, and he was adequate as a pass catcher when given the opportunity. Chicago added center Lucas Patrick to a mediocre offensive line this offseason, which should help the running game, but the biggest change comes in the form of a new coaching staff. Matt Eberflus replaces Matt Nagy as head coach, and new offensive coordinator Luke Getsy comes from a Packers system that emphasized a committee approach to the backfield over having a bell cow. That could result in more touches for Herbert alongside Montgomery, rather than having to wait for an injury, but it's the development of Justin Fields that will determine how many of those are high-value opportunities.

Herbert rushed 10 times for 50 yards in the Bears' 29-13 loss to the Vikings in Week 18 , and he ended the season with 129 carries for 731 yards and four touchdowns along with nine receptions, 57 yards and another score over 13 games played.
ANALYSIS
Herbert was beginning to see his role in the offense increase beginning in Week 7 before he suffered a hip injury that caused him to miss four games beginning in Week 10. Upon his return, he was back to seeing a smaller number of touches that reflected his early-season usage. After rushing for 4.2 yards per carry in 2021, he was over a full yard per carry better this year, and he often looked to be a superior runner over lead back David Montgomery. With Montgomery set to hit free agency, Herbert, who's inked through 2024, may move right into the lead-back role for 2023 if his teammate isn't re-signed.

2021 Fantasy Outlook
Herbert showed out in his one year at Virginia Tech after transferring from Kansas, racking up nearly 1,200 rushing yards on 7.6 yards per carry, and as a result he was taken in the sixth round by the Bears. A physical runner at 5-9 and 210 lbs., Herbert has the power and burst to grind out yards between the tackles and get to the corner on outside runs, but his lack of elusiveness and top-end speed limits his ability to be a big-play threat in the pros. He's also purely an early-down option, as he's not a natural receiver and has a lot of work to do in pass protection to earn snaps in those situations. With David Montgomery, Damien Williams and even the bigger Ryan Nall ahead of him on the Chicago depth chart, there isn't much of a path to significant snaps as a rookie for Herbert, but he's athletic enough to carve out a role on special teams.
