Kenneth Walker III Hits Paydirt Once Again

Tuesday, October 3, 1:20 AM

Seattle Seahawks running back Kenneth Walker III took 17 carries for 79 yards and a touchdown on Monday night against the New York Giants. His score made it the third consecutive week he reached the end zone. Walker nearly had a 73-yard touchdown on Seattle's first drive after he rolled over the top of his tackler, but the replay revealed that his elbow had touched the turf on the play, resulting in a two-yard loss. Walker also reasserted himself as the primary option in Seattle's backfield, logging 39 snaps to Zach Charbonnet's 13. The Seahawks have a bye in Week 5, but fantasy managers should plug Walker right back into their starting lineups when they return to action against the Bengals in Week 6.

Khalil Herbert Goes Off In Week 4

Sunday, October 1, 9:36 PM

Chicago Bears running back Khalil Herbert made easy work of the Denver Broncos defense in Week 4. Before the game, the expectation was that Roschon Johnson was going to see a majority of the carries. However, that wasn't the case during Sunday's contest. Herbert rushed 18 times for 103 yards, while hauling in four receptions for 19 yards and a touchdown in the loss. This was an odd outburst in usage for Herbert who saw only 14 carries combined during the past two games. It remains to be seen what kind of role he'll have in the Week 5 matchup against the Washington Commanders. Herbert will be a low-end flex option for that contest.
