I was the one pounding the drum for David Montgomery last season when he was being drafted as the 25th RB off the board. With that being said, in no way did I anticipate a top-5 finish! Despite a truly terrible offense, Montgomery produced for fantasy managers and helped deliver some titles with his dominant stretch to end the year. Unfortunately, we shouldn't be expecting that same level of dominance in 2021. Tarik Cohen will be back and healthy eventually, which means a dramatic dip in receiving production for Montgomery. Additionally, Damien Williams was added to this backfield to take the Cordarrelle Patterson role, which will take some carries away too. Montgomery is still going to provide fantasy managers with a very safe floor week after week, but we need to temper our expectations for the young RB heading into this season. Fantasy players that draft Montgomery thinking that they're going to get 2020 production are most likely going to be disappointed. It's safe to view Montgomery as a mid-range RB2.Sanders is one of the most exciting RBs to watch in the entire NFL, but he's been a headache for fantasy managers over the past couple of seasons. While he could be incredible for fantasy if he was given the workload that a CMC or Zeke got, the Eagles coaching staff has refused to lean on him and they've consistently rotated in multiple other options. With Nick Sirianni coming in as Head Coach, there was some optimism that things could be different this time around. However, the Eagles have Boston Scott and Jordan Howard still on this roster and they added Gainwell in the NFL Draft, therefore signaling that we should be expecting more of the same. With Hurts taking away some rushing volume, plus the presence of multiple other RBs in this backfield, there doesn't appear to be much upside to selecting Sanders this upcoming season. He can be viewed as a low-end RB2 this year.

UPDATE- The addition of OT Teven Jenkins in the draft was supposed to help bolster a Bears line that badly needed an upgrade. Unfortunately, Jenkins is headed for surgery (back). The Bears signed former Eagles LT Jason Peters. Peters is no spring chicken at 39. If he struggles, Monty and the Bears offense are in trouble. Chicago also traded up to take a certain QB who played his college ball at THE Ohio State University, Justin Fields. Monty needs this offense to take a step forward and score some TDs for him to reach his potential. I'm still skeptical. After all this is the Bears we're talking about.Jalen Hurts is a threat on the read option and that will open up running lanes for Sanders. Rookie WR Devonta Smith adds some much needed punch into the offense. The Eagles line was decimated with injuries last year. They should be much better in 2021. Many fantasy owners were burned by Sanders. The concern is that the Eagles continue with a RBBC by splitting the carries with Jordan Howard and Boston Scott. Jalen Hurts could also vulture some TDs. Keep an eye on this in training camp. With a 3rd round ADP, that still seems too high for a guy in a RBBC. I need a better price point than that.

How does a guy who finished last season as RB4 get knocked way the hell down to RB23? Competition. In Monty's magical 2020, Tarik Cohen missed almost the entire season, allowing the former to more than double his receptions and receiving yards from 2019. Damien Williams was brought in to replace Cordarrelle Patterson, so Montgomery could lose some touches to him as well. I'm fine with Monty as a back-end RB2, but I can't see him approaching RB1 territory.Sanders has rolled for over 2,000 scrimmage yards and 12 total touchdowns in 28 NFL games, though he hasn't exactly lit the world on fire with his production. He's been utilized sparingly for a back of his talent, and new HC Nick Sirianni (formerly with the Colts) isn't likely to turn Sanders into a workhorse back. Expect him to provide mid-range RB2 numbers this season.

*UPDATE* I do LOVE the Fields pick for this entire offense. No one finished hotter, but Montgomery preyed on weakest SOS and w/ no Cohen stealing work and now Damien Williams is here w/ Matt "Too Cute" Nagy returning to OC after Bill Lazor called the shots for DMont's explosion. Everything's stacking up ugly, besides Fields... which could offset it all.Love that the team is turning to Hurts, as Sanders played significantly better w/ him under center. Wonder how new HC will deploy backs, don't enjoy Howard's return & they stole Gainwell. Love the talent and potential, but the volume & injury question marks have me a bit lower on Miles - 8/23: Now he's been trapped in a near-even timeshare w/ Boston Scott. Committee-rich coach really could cap ceiling and floor here

We preach volume is king in fantasy, so it's nice to hear HC Nagy claiming Montgomery could very well see 20+ carries week in, week outHas any RB's stock fallen further this summer? Regressed in passing game in 2020 and every time you turn around there's a new a quote about an RBBC in PHI

Sure, Montgomery finished as the RB4 last year. There were many factors that led to that, particularly the injury to Tarik Cohen, freeing up tons of targets in the passing game. Over the course of Montgomery's short career, he's played 19 games with Cohen and 12 games without him. In the games with Cohen, he averaged 2.32 targets per game. In the 12 games without him, that number rose to 4.92 targets per game. Well, Cohen is back, and the team signed Damien Williams, who's a better receiving back than Montgomery. On top of Cohen missing, the Bears had a ridiculously easy schedule down the stretch, playing against the Packers twice, Lions, Texans, Vikings, and Jaguars to close out the season. Did you know that Montgomery was the RB20 after 10 weeks (prior to starting that schedule)? He's a fine low-end RB2, but don't go about your day thinking you're getting a steal in the fourth round or anything.The start to Sanders' career hasnt been what we'd hoped for, delivering RB2 or better numbers in just 14-of-28 of games (50 percent). To be fair, he hasn't been used in a workhorse role, totaling more than 15 touches just 11 times over that span. Will the departure of Doug Pederson allow him to shine, or will Nick Sirianni implement a timeshare as well? The depth chart now consists of Sanders, Kerryon Johnson, and Kenneth Gainwell, so this could very well be a Colts-like backfield, which would make sense given that's where Sirianni comes from. Sanders should be treated as a timeshare RB2 who's more talented than most in that conversation.

Montgomery had 237.8 fantasy points last year, but that was fueled by the final five games coming against teams that were in the Bottom-7 against fantasy running backs. I like Montgomery to be a solid running back in 2021, but I view him as more of a RB2 than an RB1 with Tarik Cohen coming back from injury.Sanders had 156.4 fantasy points in 12 games and the Eagles have a new coach, Nick Sirianni. Sanders figures to be the lead running back in this offense and he is a borderline RB1 with upside if he can stay healthy and the Eagles do not lean too much toward a RBBC.
