4. Khalil Herbert, RB, Chicago Bears vs. Houston Texans
The Texans have already allowed 48.7 fantasy points to the running back position. They faced Jonathan Taylor, Nyheim Hines, Javonte Williams and Melvin Gordon. Each back is part of a two-back committee, just like the Bears, and each back has been worth a flex play against the Texans.
There’s a lot of opportunity on the table for Chicago to run the ball and take some pressure off of Justin Fields, who frankly looks overwhelmed. We expect David Montgomery to get his touches, but Herbert could get enough to be a sleeper this week.
