There were a lot of talented RBs that I watched in week one, but none impressed me more than David Montgomery. He looked decisive, confident, fast, and an all-around impressive running back. The Rams run defense is not an easy unit to run on and Montgomery was gashing them for big gains repeatedly. The Bengals just kept Dalvin Cook relatively in check on the ground in week one, but that shouldn't scare us off of starting Montgomery as a high-end RB2 this week with upside. We all knew that Montgomery could wear down a defense with a heavy workload as the game progressed, but we haven't seen this level of speed from him before. Only two other RBs in the NFL finished with more Breakaway Yards than Montgomery. Fire him up with confidence this week.
