I was the one pounding the drum for David Montgomery last season when he was being drafted as the 25th RB off the board. With that being said, in no way did I anticipate a top-5 finish! Despite a truly terrible offense, Montgomery produced for fantasy managers and helped deliver some titles with his dominant stretch to end the year. Unfortunately, we shouldn't be expecting that same level of dominance in 2021. Tarik Cohen will be back and healthy, which means a dramatic dip in receiving production for Montgomery. Additionally, Damien Williams was added to this backfield to take the Cordarrelle Patterson role, which will take some carries away too. Montgomery is still going to provide fantasy managers with a very safe floor week after week, but we need to temper our expectations for the young RB heading into this season. Fantasy players that draft Montgomery thinking that they're going to get 2020 production are most likely going to be disappointed. It's safe to view Montgomery as a mid-range RB2. My Very Early Projection: 249-1058-8 rushing & 31-238-1 receiving.

David Montgomery can get 20 carries a game, per Matt Nagy

Chicago Bears HC Matt Nagy reiterates his plan to have RB David Montgomery receive 20 carries a game, per Jeff Dickerson of ESPN

Fantasy Impact

This is the second time HC Matt Nagy has stated his plan to have David Montgomery play in a true workhorse role. Montgomery helped fantasy managers win titles last year, carrying the ball 19 times per game towards the end of the season. He had 1,070 yards with eight touchdowns on the ground last year and added 54 catches for 438 yards. He's being drafted as the RB18. If he manages to get 20 carries a game, he will outperform that draft position.
