David Montgomery wrapped up his first season in Detroit as a resounding success in real-life football and fantasy. He was the RB15 in fantasy as he managed the second 1,000-yard rushing season of his NFL career. Montgomery did see his volume limited down the stretch some, as he averaged 15 touches and 75.7 total yards after his return in Week 10. He'll continue to share the backfield load with Jahmyr Gibbs weekly, but in one of the best offenses in the NFL, that shouldn't be a massive worry for his 2024 outlook. Montgomery will be the early down hammer (19th in missed tackles forced per attempt, per Fantasy Points Data) and be plenty involved in the red zone. Last season, he was 15th in carries and fifth in red zone touches as he scored 13 touchdowns (fourth-most).

David Montgomery carried the ball 10 times for 40 yards and one touchdown in the Lions' 30-20 Week 18 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Montgomery continues to have a nose for the end zone of late, registering a rushing touchdown in each of the last three games for the Lions. The veteran running back finishes a solid season as part of a two-headed backfield attack, rushing for 1,015 yards and 13 touchdowns to go along with 16 receptions for 117 receiving yards in 14 games for the Lions this season.
