Scouting report

CHI RB Khalil Herbert - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. Baltimore Ravens

Khalil Herbert essentially acted as an RB1 in David Montgomery's absence, but he barely saw the field after the veteran returned in Week 9. Herbert had just four touches, all carries, for 13 yards while playing on only 10 offensive snaps (16%). Herbert might be a valuable handcuff stash in case Montgomery gets hurt again, but he's not worth playing anymore.

CHI RB Khalil Herbert - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 at Pittsburgh Steelers

Khalil Herbert had a solid 25 touches last week, but he struggled to do anything with those touches. He had 72 yards on 23 carries and -4 yards on two receptions. Obviously not a horrible game, but you'd expect more production off of such high volume. Herbert should see plenty of touches again this week as David Montgomery is still out, and Damien Williams is battling a knee injury. Although he gets a brutal matchup against the Steelers who are 1st in schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed to running backs. The Steelers are mostly that high because their defense has only allowed two total touchdowns to the position, the lowest in the league. Herbert is a low-end RB2 or a strong flex play in Week 9.

CHI RB Khalil Herbert - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 vs. San Francisco 49ers

The Bears as a team looked awful last week against the Bucs, but Khalil Herbert had a sneakily good performance. He ran 18 times for 100 yards, and was involved as a receiver seeing five targets, which he converted into a 5-33 stat line. It was an impressive performance considering running backs were averaging 43 rush yards vs. the Bucs heading into the game. Herbert also dominated the touches despite Damien Williams' return to the lineup. Williams had just four touches while the two backs had a playing time split of 77%/17%. Herbert has two 100-yard scrimmage games in his two starts and we wouldn't be surprised if he finished around that mark again in Week 8 vs. the 49ers. The 49ers are allowing about 85 rush yards to backs per game, and are 15th in schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed to running backs. Herbert should be a lower-end RB2 play this week.

CHI RB Khalil Herbert - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

UPDATE: Damien Williams has been cleared to play, which complicates things for Herbert. He'll still be involved, but he faces a brutal Bucs defense against the run, and he's shown limited ability as a receiver both in college and in the pros. Herbert still offers some low-end flex appeal, but he's not as enticing as he was when we thought Williams would be inactive.

Khalil Herbert was forced into the starting role, and looked good. He saw 19 carries, finishing with 97 yards and a touchdown on the ground. He also saw three targets, catching two passes for 15 yards. If Damien Williams is inactive again, and there's a chance he might be, then Herbert will be a solid RB3/flex play. We'd rank him higher, but he's going against the toughest run defense in the league. The Bucs have allowed a total of 254 rushing yards to running backs through six games. Tampa has actually allowed more receiving yards (312) to running backs than rushing yards, but Herbert doesn't offer much value as a receiver. But since he'd be the Bears only option with Williams out, he still has low-end RB3 appeal.

CHI RB Khalil Herbert - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Green Bay Packers

Damien Williams will not play this week after being placed on the COVID list, launching Herbert into the starting role. The Bears trusted Herbert with 18 carries last week, so we wouldn't be surprised to see him hit 15+ carries again in Week 6. He doesn't offer much value as a receiving threat as he barely caught passes in college. But Herbert will be a low-end RB2 play this week as he takes over the starting role.

CHI RB Khalil Herbert - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at Las Vegas Raiders

Khalil Herbert should see an increase in playing time this week with starting running back David Montgomery sidelined. Herbert has been valuable as the Bears' kick returner as he's second in the league in kick return yards. He's an interesting player, but it's hard seeing him have a solid role as Damien Williams should get the bulk of the touches in Montgomery's absence. Herbert isn't much of a receiving threat, as he had 34 receptions in 46 career collegiate games. He's a player to monitor this week, but certainly not worth using in fantasy.
