Fantasy Football Player Notes

2019 Draft Rankings
David Montgomery photo 41. David Montgomery RB - (at MIN)
It's clear the Bears didn't think Jordan Howard fit their offensive scheme after sending him away for a sixth-round pick, right? So, what does that say about Montgomery, who they traded up into the third-round to get? Howard finished as the RB20 in his first season under Matt Nagy. Montgomery was likely the best pure runner in the draft who's already shown the ability to handle a workhorse role, and offers more in the passing-game than Howard did, though most of that work will go to Tarik Cohen. Montgomery was drafted on a team that's built to win right now, which means he'll have big value immediately

Allen Robinson photo 60. Allen Robinson WR - (at MIN)
It's tough to know how you should value Robinson as he was coming off a torn ACL in 2018, joining a new team with a new quarterback, and learning a new offense. With that being said, he'll likely be a bit more inconsistent than he was in Jacksonville due to the number of weapons the Bears have available. Between him, Anthony Miller, Taylor Gabriel, Trey Burton, Tarik Cohen, and David Montgomery, you may be stuck with some lackluster weeks, which is not something you want out of your WR2, meaning he's best-suited as a WR3 who'll give you some WR1 performances at times

Tarik Cohen photo 78. Tarik Cohen RB - (at MIN)
We all believed Cohen was underused in John Fox's offense, and while he did finish as a top-15 running back in PPR last year, his touches didn't increase all that much under Matt Nagy. He finished the year with 20 more targets and 12 more rush attempts, which definitely helps, but the additions of David Montgomery and Mike Davis aren't going to help him add much to that number so he'll have to remain ultra-efficient. Think of Cohen as a younger James White who may not see as many targets, but will get more carries

Anthony Miller photo 121. Anthony Miller WR - (at MIN)
It was a somewhat rough year for Miller in 2018, as most don't realize he had a Jones fracture in his foot prior to the NFL Draft, which was why he didn't participate in the Combine. He then went on to play through a separated shoulder his rookie season, yet proceeded to score seven touchdowns on just 54 targets. Miller seemingly has a knack for the end zone, as he scored 33 touchdowns in his final 26 games at Memphis. He did have shoulder surgery this offseason, but he is expected to be ready for the start of training camp. Knowing how well he played through injuries, you must wonder what he can do when healthy while playing the slot in Matt Nagy's offense

Mitch Trubisky photo 125. Mitch Trubisky QB - (at MIN)
He missed two full games last year, had an entirely new offense to learn, and had all new pass-catchers. Seriously, not one was the same. Despite that, he finished as the QB15 on the season (No. 11 in points per game). It'll be his second year in Matt Nagy's offense and he didn't lose anyone. If you don't realize he has upside similar to Cam Newton, you're missing something. He rushed for at least 43 yards on five separate occasions. Most don't realize that despite playing in the same number of games and throwing 52 fewer passes, Trubisky outscored Baker Mayfield by 23.0 fantasy points in 2018.

Trey Burton photo 143. Trey Burton TE - (at MIN)
It was supposed to be a breakout season for Burton in 2018 under Matt Nagy, but instead, it was a mediocre season. While he did finish as the No. 7 tight end, anyone who owned him can tell you it was frustrating. He played all 16 games, but he was hampered by some injuries at the end of the year. While year two could bring more consistency, we should have both Anthony Miller and Allen Robinson nearing full health, as they dealt with injuries as well in 2018. Burton isn't going to turn into Travis Kelce despite playing in the same offense, but he's still likely going to finish as a top-10 tight end at year's end

Chicago Bears photo 168. Chicago Bears DST - (at MIN)
The Bears were so far and away the number one defense in 2018 that you can make a case for taking them a round or two before every other defense begins to go. They return most of their talent and should be a safe play most weeks.

Taylor Gabriel photo 224. Taylor Gabriel WR - (at MIN)
Did you realize Gabriel saw 93 targets in 2018? That ranked 36th among wide receivers, so he's clearly a big part of Matt Nagy's offense. That's unlikely to happen again considering Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller are healthy, but he's still going to play a role. If you're looking for a high-ceiling player to help fill some bye weeks, he could be that guy
