2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
The 6th round rookie came out of nowhere while filling in for Montgomery during his four-game absence. Herbert tallied 344 yards (80% of his season total) over that span, displaying a burst and wiggle (4.5 yards per carry) the offense doesn't always get with Montgomery. Unfortunately for Chicago and his fantasy owners, the coaching staff totally ignored Herbert once Montgomery returned, so we didn't get to see if those four games were a fluke, or a sign of possibility. The Bears didn't add significantly to the position in 2022, so I have to believe they trust Montgomery to lead the way, but it also could signal that Herbert could get a longer look than he did in 2021. He doesn't pop athletically, but he's got great vision and is a decisive runner. If he's improved as a pass blocker, I expect him to see the field more, and make for a passable starter if Montgomery gets hurt again.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Khalil Herbert out for at least a month
Hip injury

FFToday's Take: Herbert's production has taken a hit since Justin Fields started monopolizing the running game about five weeks ago, but he was still one of the better stories of the season so far - especially in Weeks 3 and 4 when David Montgomery was injured. With Herbert out of the picture - possibly for the rest of the year - Montgomery should return to a workhorse role and be considered a strong RB2 option at worst moving forward. Trestan Ebner could work into the mix as well, but he is unlikely to be all that relevant for fantasy purposes this year.


Injury David Montgomery expected to play
Limits the value of Khalil Herbert

Chicgao Bears
Bears’ RB David Montgomery, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a knee injury, plans to play against the Vikings barring any pregame setbacks, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Montgomery missed Week 4 with a knee injury allowing Khalil Herbert to have the backfield mostly to himself, posting a 19-77-0, 1-24-0 line while ceding a few touches to Trestan Ebner. With Montgomery back in the mix, he may be more of a middling RB2 this week if the coaches decided to keep Herbert more involved.

Bears’ RB David Montgomery was upgraded today to limited practice after not practicing Wednesday due to his ankle injury. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: We'll monitor Montgomery's practice status on Friday as his availability will have a huge impact on the fantasy value of backup Khalil Herbert. The Bears travel to Minnesota in Week 5.


Injury Bears rule out David Montgomery
Ankle injury

Chicgao Bears
Bears ruled out David Montgomery (ankle), and Khalil Herbert to start for Chicago coming off big game against Texans. (Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Montgomery missed practice all week and has now been ruled out, meaning we'll get Herbert in a starting role against the Giants. He should see the bulk of carries after his 20-157-2, 2-12-0 line last week against Houston making him an easy RB2 with RB1 upside in all leagues.


David Montgomery to be OK for Week 4?
Suffered lower leg injury in Week 3
By: Doug Orth | Tue Sep 27, 11:55 pm

Chicgao Bears
David Montgomery is going to be day to day according to Matt Eberflus. He said there are a “couple things going on” with his lower leg injury but said he’s “good” right now. (ESPN - Courtney Cronin)

FFToday's Take: There is some belief that Montgomery is dealing with an ankle injury. It would seem HC Matt Eberflus is of the opinion he will be able to go this weekend against the Giants. Either way, one would think Khalil Herbert earned the right to prove himself as a 1B back in this offense as opposed to a traditional backup with his Week 3 effort. Even if Montgomery is active in Week 4, fantasy managers in deeper leagues can make a case to play both.
