Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 13 Half PPR Rankings

David Montgomery Note

In his first three games back from a sprained knee, Montgomery has 44-167-0 rushing and 6-54-0 receiving, averaging 8.4 fantasy points per game over that stretch. Montgomery played at least 85% of Chicago's offensive snaps in all three of those games, so usage isn't the issue. The Bears' mediocre offensive line play is an ongoing concern for Montgomery stakeholders, and this week Monty will be up against an Arizona run defense that's giving up only 15.7 fantasy points per game to running backs. Montgomery is just a midrange RB2 this week. His modest $5,600 price tag on DraftKings will lure some people in, but I worry that he's a trap at that price.

Darnell Mooney Note

With Allen Robinson sidelined by a hamstring injury, Mooney has had 5-121-1 and 5-123-0 in Chicago's last two games. Never mind that he's caught 41.7% of his 24 targets in those two games. What matters is that Mooney is being force-fed and cashing in. If Robinson remains sidelined this week, Mooney will be a low-end WR2 and an appealing DraftKings play at $5,600.

Cole Kmet Note

Kmet saw a season-high 11 targets in the Bears' Thanksgiving Day win over the Lions and finished with 8-65-0. That was with Andy Dalton at quarterback for the Bears. Dalton had also targeted Kmet seven times in Week 1, resulting in a 5-42-0 stat line for the second-year tight end. Kmet ran routes on 86% of Dalton's dropbacks in Week 12. It's encouraging usage, but two reasons to flash the caution light for Week 13: (1) Kmet still hasn't scored a touchdown all season, and (2) he's about to face a Cardinals defense that's giving up 4.5 fantasy points per game to tight ends, the second-lowest total in the league.
