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.

September 2, 2021
Herbert is part of Chicago's three-player backfield to start the regular season according to the Bears' official website.
ANALYSIS
After an impressive preseason, Herbert enters the season as the No. 3 running back behind David Montgomery and Damien Williams while the team will be without Tarik Cohen (knee) for at least the first six weeks of the season due to his placement on the PUP list. Although Herbert is on the roster, he may not see many touches unless one of the other backs ahead of him misses time.
