Hail to Fantasy Football
I'm finding it tough to rank Taylor. Tons of potential, great O-line...but what about Marlon Mack?!? 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's looking like a very good possibility for Taylor to see 250-plus carries in his rookie season. Some may think that's absurd, but Marlon Mack totaled 247 carries in just 14 games last year. Even if we give Mack the 100 carries that Jordan Wilkins and Jonathan Williams combined for last year, it'd leave room for Taylor to hit the 250 mark. He's also running behind the best offensive line in football, so it wouldn't be a shock to see him rush for 1,200 yards in year one with his vision and speed in the open field. Taylor is right in the same territory as someone like Nick Chubb.There's only one direction for Montgomery and the Bears offense to go this year, right? They didn't address the offensive line as aggressive as I thought they would, but Mongtomery's role is safe as the only running back on the roster capable of handling 15-plus carries per game. It's also worth noting that despite not starting right out of the gate, Montgomery ranked sixth in the NFL for carries inside the five-yard-line. He may be a low-end RB2, but he's still an RB2 who's locked into 15-plus touches per game.
Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
While I do see Taylor finishing the season as the RB1 in Indy, it's unlikely he gets too much work right out of the gate with there being no preseason. If you feel comfortable waiting a few weeks for him to acclimate, you could have yourself a solid RB2Montgomery wasn't all too impressive as a rookie totaling 889 rushing yards and six TDs. The issue with Montgomery was his efficiency as he averaged only 3.7 ypc. Additionally, he only saw 35 targets in 2019 which downgrades him in PPR formats.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
1 of 7 RBs of 220+ pounds to run a sub-4.4 40 at the NFL Combine in past 20 years - may take awhile to overtake Mack in touches but I'll bet he gets thereLike Le'Veon, Monty has the workload if not a great environment or transcendent talent, but there's hope that new QB Foles will be an upgrade for the offense
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Taylor is a tough back to evaluate heading into the fantasy season. He has tremendous skill and will be playing behind perhaps the best offensive line in football. But Marlon Mack will still factor in, especially given the lack of preseason games, which should negatively impact all rookies. And don't forget Nyheim Hines, who may steal much of the passing-down work from Taylor, especially given the latter's struggles with drops in college. There's tremendous upside, but plenty of downside that shouldn't be ignored entirely.Montgomery had a rough 2019 season, but there are plenty of reasons to expect him to be much better in 2020. He has no real competition for carries, he was used heavily within the 10-yard line last year, and the entire Chicago offense should be better with the expected switch to Nick Foles at quarterback. Montgomery should get plenty of touches this year, which is half the battle with the position. If the Chicago offense improves just a bit, he should easily produce solid RB2 numbers, with upside for even more if everything breaks right.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Monty had 267 touches last season and the Bears did nothing this off-season to suggest that that number will lessen at any point. They even brought in Nick Foles hoping for an upgrade in QB play. I don't love the player and he was awful on an efficiency basis last season, but if he could fall into the endzone a few more times this season than we could be looking at a MelGo type second-year performance.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Taylor ended up in a fantastic situation for a rookie playing behind one of the best offensive lines in the league on a team that loves to run the football. Taylor should start as a low-end RB2 to begin the season and emerge as a high-end RB2 to low-end RB1 to close the season.Montgomery had 1074 yards from scrimmage and 7 touchdowns in 2019, but QB Mitchell Trubisky must improve or Nick Foles must be an upgrade for Montgomery to build on last season.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Taylor seeing 250 carries in 2020 isn't out of the realm of possibilities. If that happens, behind this offensive line, Taylor could easily finish as a top-15 RB this season.From a fantasy perspective, very few backs in the NFL are going to see the type of workload that Montgomery will in 2020. This offense should be much improved from its 2019 version and Montgomery's a screaming value at his current ADP.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
He finished his 3yr college career with over 6000 yards from scrimmage and had more 200 yard games than sub-100yd games. Taylor behind the Colts O-line is just going to be nuts.Montgomery is a virtual LOCK for 240 carries. There have been 125 running backs who've hit that mark over the last 10 years. Guess how many of them finished worse than RB25? None. @MikeTagliereNFL
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Jonathan Taylor has found himself in an excellent long-term situation but it's far more of a mess in 2020. While this offence had 560 RB touches in 2019, they were very spread and that's likely for this coming season as well. It's highly likely that Marlon Mack will be the initial starter with Taylor funnelling touches as the season progresses. That's not what you want from a player many are drafting inside the first four rounds. While there is a lot of end-of-season upside, the path there isn't at all clear, especially with a better passing offence likely leading to lower rushing volume and Nyheim Hines grabbing a pile of receptions. Taylor profiles as an eventual RB2 with excellent long-term upside.It was a difficult 2019 for the Bears but it's very hard to pin the blame on David Montgomery. While he failed to do anything special (see his bizarrely low yards after contact), the whole offence was a disaster and gave him nothing to work with. The volume with remain and he's got solid RB2 potential, especially in non-PPR. Just understand you don't have a potential stud on your hands here, simpy a solid provider.
Seth Miller

Barring a terrible landing spot, another rookie I love. Maybe a bit of a shock for now but all these rookies typically move up by draft day, I'm just saving you the sadness of watching your "value" pick creep up boards into August.267 touches in 2019 were 12th among RBs. Nagy went from 6th in attempts in 2018(468), to 20th(395). I guess that happens when you aren't winning most games. He was still avoiding tackles at a high rate, much like college. Was 8th in the league with 47. However, PFF rated him as the 60th most elusive RB. What's the point of avoiding tackles if you have 10th percentile burst? 78% of top 12 RBs the last 3 years have received at least 250 touches. He obviously failed to reach top 12 with that amount last year but hard to see him not getting a similar workload in 2020 and another shot at it.
