It's clear the Bears didn't think Jordan Howard fit into 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.

David Montgomery showing solid route-running skills

Bears coach Matt Nagy praised the route-running skills of rookie RB David Montgomery. “We always knew he had great hands. You don’t know how great of a route runner a college back is, but he’s a really good route runner. . . . This kid can’t wait. [Neither can] Mike Davis and these other backs. They want to put the pads on.”

Fantasy Impact

The Bears moved up in the third round to draft Montgomery, and there are signs that he could move into the role vacated by Jordan Howard. And then if Montgomery takes on more passing-game work as well he could really carry RB1 upside. This wouldn't be great news for Tarik Cohen, either. At Montomgery's current ranking of RB29 among our experts, he provides a lot of value potential entering the new season.
