David Montgomery scores in loss

David Montgomery rushed 11 times for 25 yards and a TD in the Bears’ 24-21 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

He added one reception for 11 yards. Montgomery once again comfortably led the backfield in touches, though his limited usage is still questionable. It was encouraging to see him find the end zone for the second time this season, and he'll head into the bye week with 297 total yards and two touchdowns on the year.

David Montgomery operates as workhorse in win

David Montgomery rushed 21 times for 53 yards, adding three receptions for 14 yards in the Bears’ 16-6 win over the Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Montgomery continues to ascend in his role out of the backfield, seeing a career-high 21 carries in Sunday’s win. He’s steadily becoming the workhorse for the Bears, though his upside is somewhat capped due to the offensive struggles of the team. If Chase Daniel remains at the helm, the team may choose to lean on the run game, boosting Montgomery’s value.

David Montgomery finishes with strong play on MNF

David Montgomery rushed 13 times for 67 yards, adding three receptions for 14 yards in the Bears’ 31-15 win over the Redskins on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Montgomery comfortably led the backfield in touches Monday, racking up a healthy 71 yards on 16 touches. His involvement in the passing game was even more encouraging, as he finished with more receptions than pass-catching specialist Tarik Cohen. After a Week 1 dud, Montgomery has begun to assert himself as the clear lead back in this offense.

David Montgomery scores in win

David Montgomery carried the ball 18 times for 62 yards and a TD, adding one reception on three targets for six yards in the Bears’ 16-14 win over the Broncos on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

This was the game fantasy managers were hoping to see from the rookie after he was hyped in the offseason. He operated as a true workhorse with 19 carries and scored the team’s only touchdown. He’ll push for RB2 numbers if his workload remains steady.

David Montgomery sees just seven touches in NFL debut

David Montgomery rushed six times for 18 yards and caught his only target for 27 yards in the Bears’ 10-3 loss to the Packers on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

It was a disappointing night for Montgomery owners, as the highly-touted rookie finished with the fewest touches in Chicago's backfield. Mike Davis (11) and Tarik Cohen (8) were both more involved in the offense, and thoughts of a workhorse role for the rookie seem to have dissipated in 60 minutes. This was a tough, divisional matchup in which the Bears could only muster three points, so gamescript didn't favor Montgomery. It is concerning, however, that Davis and Cohen combined for 14 receptions on 17 targets compared to just one reception on one target for Montgomery. Expectations should be tempered moving forward, especially in PPR formats.
