RB - CHI
Week 8 Outlook
David Montgomery rushed 14 times for 48 yards and caught all five of his targets for 21 yards in the Bears’ 24-10 loss to the Rams on Monday.
Monty continues to handle the lion’s share of backfield work, though he’s been largely ineffective with that opportunity. Fortunately for fantasy managers, Montgomery’s involvement in the passing game buoys his sub-par rushing, though it’s tough to see much upside.
David Montgomery rushed 19 times for 58 yards and caught four of five targets for 39 yards in the Bears’ 23-16 win over the Panthers on Sunday.
Monty continues to see plenty of work out of the backfield, though his output has been a huge letdown to fantasy managers. Facing one of the worst run defenses in the league, Montgomery barely eclipsed three yards per carry. He buoyed his day with a healthy receiving line, and while his ceiling appears very limited, his floor has become very sturdy in the absence of Tarik Cohen.
David Montgomery rushed 10 times for 29 yards and a TD, bringing in seven of eight targets for 30 yards in the Bears’ 20-19 win over the Buccaneers on Thursday.
As expected, Montgomery found little space as a runner against Tampa Bay’s stout front line. Still, he was able to punch in a goal-line score and actually did the most damage as a receiver, compiling 10 PPR points on the evening. Monty’s role as a pass-catcher has expanded since Tarik Cohen was lost for the season, and the second-year back has a solid RB2 floor thanks to his expanded involvement in the offense.
David Montgomery rushed 10 times for 27 yards and caught three of six targets for 30 yards in the Bears’ 19-11 loss to the Colts on Sunday.
Monty had a rough go Sunday, though it was a tough out for the entire Chicago offense against the Colts' stout defense. Montgomery's 10 carries were concerning, but his six targets were encouraging, as he may continue to see more work as a receiver with Tarik Cohen out of action. Next up is another difficult matchup with the Buccaneers' elite run defense.
David Montgomery rushed 14 times for 45 yards, and caught two of three targets for nine yards in the Bears’ 30-26 win over the Falcons on Sunday.
Monty wasn’t able to get much going in this one as Chicago played catchup most of the afternoon. Still, he out-touched Tarik Cohen 16-5 and looks to have secured a workhorse role for the Bears. He’ll be an RB2/flex moving forward.
