Fantasy Football Player Notes
2019 Half PPR Rest of Season Rankings
The Bears drafted Montgomery in the third round and he has been impressive so far this preseason. If he was all there was in the Bears backfield then fantasy owners would likely be drafting him as a low-end RB1. But of course they still have Tarik Cohen and they signed Mike Davis, so Montgomery is going to need to share the workload. Given the positive talk about him leading into the season, however, Montgomery should be drafted as a mid-tier RB2.
Cohen got nary a carry in Week 1 against the Packers, instead running routes out of the slot almost exclusively. He'll likely see some more work in the backfield but with Mike Davis also cutting into David Montgomery's role, there isn't that much room for Cohen at this point. He's certainly worth owning in PPR formats, but be wary about starting him for the foreseeable future.
