RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

“Boom” Herron got his chance to make a contribution last year after Ahmad Bradshaw couldn't stay healthy and Trent Richardson couldn't even approach effectiveness. While he doesn't have the size or strength to hold up in a feature role, Herron's vision and burst through the hole make him a useful runner in smaller doses, and his hands and blitz pickups make him an asset on passing downs. Unfortunately, he was waived/injured by the Colts in advance of Week 1, which could land rookie Josh Robinson the team's No. 2 RB assignment.

2014

Herron will try to win a role as a reserve running back and special teams player. He got just five carries last season, but looks set to begin the season as the No. 3 running back. That role could have significant fantasy value with Trent Richardson, who struggled last season, and Ahmad Bradshaw, returning from a neck injury, at the top two spots.

2012

Herron will add depth to the Bengals' backfield, but is not likely to have much of a fantasy impact.
