Fantasy Football Player Notes

2021 Rest of Season Rankings

David Montgomery Note

Montgomery (knee) will be sidelined 4-5 weeks entering Week 5. If fantasy managers have short benches then it isn't the worst idea to move on in redraft leagues. Of course, those who play with deeper benches should keep him stashed. Damien Williams is the RB to roster in Chicago right now. Khalil Herbert could see an expanded role as well.

Darnell Mooney Note

Mooney's utilization is surprisingly fantastic through six games - he has seen 27% of Chicago's targets while registering a 10.3 ADOT. Unfortunately, the Bears are a low-volume, inefficient unit. A Week 7 matchup against the Bucs is a strong one, but Mooney can't be considered anything more than a desperation FLEX given his surrounding environment.

Khalil Herbert Note

In Week 7 against the Bucs, Herbert became just the third running back to rush for 100 yards against Tampa Bay since the end of the 2018 season. It was a spirited performance that likely earned him more playing time once David Montgomery returns. Herbert once appeared to have a short-lived fantasy shelf-life, but don't go dropping him just yet.

Cole Kmet Note

Kmet made sense as a Kelce fill-in for Week 16, so he could already be on some rosters. The 22-year-old caught 4-of-5 targets for 49 yards in the Bears' win over the Seahawks. Unfortunately, he was once again "vultured" by Jimmy Graham and still has zero touchdowns for the year. Kmet has now topped 40 receiving yards in five straight contests and draws 5+ targets more often than not. The Giants are an attackable Week 17 matchup.
