Draft SharksRoschon Johnson sees huge uptick in usage

Though Week 12's showdown between the Bears and Vikings didn't provide much entertainment, it did shed some light on Chicago's backfield situation. Rookie RB Roschon Johnson ended Monday night with a season-high 75 scrimmage yards on 15 touches. He played on 74.6% of the team's snaps, including all 13 third-down situations. Before this contest, Johnson had never played on over 50% of the Bears' offensive snaps and had just two games with more than 10 touches. His teammate and typical starter Khalil Herbert took a back seat and only played on 15 snaps in the game, seeing 6 carries and 2 catches for a combined 38 yards. Is this a symptom of Herbert having not fully recovered from the ankle injury that kept him out for several games, or is this a changing of the guard? Who knows; that's merely speculative. Still, the results are still somewhat staggering. The Bears are set to go on bye this coming week, though fantasy managers in deeper leagues should entertain adding Johnson off the waiver wire if there's a bench spot to spare.

FF TodayD'Onta Foreman listed as Doubtful for Week 12

Ankle, shin injuries Bears are listing RB D'Onta Foreman as doubtful for Monday night vs. the Vikings due to ankle and shin injuries. (Adam Schefter on X) FF Today's Take: Foreman was limited in practice on Friday and Saturday but isn't expected to play Monday night given the Doubtful tag. In his place, expected Khalil Herbert and Roschon Johnson to handle the majority of the running back work with Herbert in the lead back role.
