RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

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.
