David Montgomery could carry 'heavier load' in 2020

Bears general manager Ryan Pace told reporters that he believes David Montgomery can be the team's featured running back in 2020 while carrying a heavier load.

Fantasy Impact

Montgomery finished the 2019 season with over 1,000 total yards and seven touchdowns. He was limited overall by the team's offense, largely stemming from their trouble at QB. Still, Montgomery is a candidate to take the next step forward in 2020. He's currently a low-end RB2 in our early expert consensus rankings.

David Montgomery goes for 113 yards in upset win

David Montgomery carried 23 times for 113 yards and a touchdown in the Bears’ 21-19 win over the Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Monty went for his first 100-yard effort since Week 8, throttling a Vikings team with nothing on the line. The rookie finishes his debut campaign encouragingly with 1,074 yards and seven total touchdowns.

David Montgomery racks up 59 yards in loss

David Montgomery rushed 13 times for 57 yards, adding a two-yard reception in the Bears’ 26-3 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Montgomery was held out of the end zone again, and his 14 total touches yielded little return for fantasy owners Sunday. The talented rookie is stuck behind a poor offensive line and has to rely on Chicago's offense to put him a good place to succeed. That can't be counted on now, and Monty will be just a touchdown-dependent flex for Week 17.

David Montgomery disappoints in Sunday's loss

David Montgomery rushed 14 times for 39 rushing yards, adding a 10-yard reception in the Bears’ 21-13 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

It was yet another inefficient outing for the rookie, as he mustered less than 3.0 YPC on a healthy share of carries. He's averaging just 3.5 YPC on the season, thanks to Chicago's poor offensive line and Mitch Trubisky's up-and-down play. Montgomery can't be trusted in lineups as more than a flex at this point, and his value is tied heavily to touchdown-scoring.

David Montgomery gets 20 carries in win

David Montgomery rushed 20 times for 86 yards in the Bears’ 31-24 win over the Cowboys on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

It was another healthy dose of Montgomery out of the backfield, but he mustered just 4.3 yards per carry against a tough Dallas front. Montgomery has the requisite tools to succeed as an NFL back, though the Bears offensive line and offense as a whole lends itself to inconsistent performances, and Montgomery has only been truly valuable when scoring touchdowns. He has a chance to finish the year strong, with friendly matchups against Green Bay and Kansas City, though he could fall out of the gameplan if Chicago gets behind early.
