Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
The Bears' offensive line and Montgomery, by extension, had awful seasons last year but we've seen examples of this same scenario where the offensive line drastically improves over an off-season the running back takes off, much like Melvin Gordon a few years back. Montgomery has promising upside and his expected volume makes him an excellent RB3.Kerryon owners had high hopes several times but injuries have prevented us from seeing who he really was, and while this year was looking like the time we'd finally get to see it, Detroit drafted D'Andre Swift. Now, there is a chance, Kerryon is technically the starter for the first month, but it will essentially be a split backfield at best.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.We all know Johnson's struggled to stay on the field over his first two seasons, and it led the Lions to draft D'Andre Swift at the top of the second round. You don't draft a running back at the top of the second round to not use him. Johnson's skillset clashes with that of Swift, so it's unlikely he sees more than 10-12 touches per game.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
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
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.

Hail to Fantasy Football
I keep moving him up, thinking he could improve on his rookie year and be a solid RB2.Down quite a bit. With the Lions drafting Swift and having an early Week 5 bye, I feel like Kerryon could lose snaps early in the season if he doesn't start out strong.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
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.With D'Andre Swift now in town, it's hard to see Johnson having any sort of top-tier fantasy impact. Johnson will have upside if Swift gets injured, but these two might cancel out each other's true potential this upcoming season.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Like 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 
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
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
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.Kerryon Johnson came into 2019 with a massive amount of hype and disappointed a lot of fantasy owners. With just one game over 50 yards rushing, he injured himself in Week 7 and only returned in the last couple of weeks to do very little. He now shares the backfield with the far-more-talented D'Andre Swift and will likely fall into a backup role alongside Bo Scarborough, Ty Johnson and a dozen other Lions RB disappointments by the halfway point of the season. He's a hard pass for me.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
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.If he could ever finish a season he's been on pace for 200+ carries and at least each 30 targets the last 2 years. Just needs to survive the draft.
