Chicago Bears
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.

Four carries in season finale

January 9, 2022
Herbert rushed four times for 11 yards in the Bears' 31-17 Week 18 loss to the Vikings, and he ended the season with 103 carries for 433 yards and two touchdowns along with 14 receptions for 96 yards.
ANALYSIS
The highlight of Herbert's season was when he took over lead-back duties for David Montgomery over a four-week span and averaged more than 20 touches and 97 yards, showing that he can be a strong option if needed in the future. As long as Montgomery remains ahead of him on the depth chart, he'll be selected in fantasy drafts as a valuable backup with upside if he's needed to start games. He'll enter the second year of his four-year rookie deal, and his solid performance when called upon in 2021 makes it likely he'll be with the team for the near future.
