Pat Fitzmaurice

Monty had the Bears backfield almost entirely to himself last year after satellite back Tarik Cohen wrecked his knee. Now he has Damien Williams as a backup, and while Montgomery played 41 snaps against the Rams on Sunday night, Williams played 30. Montgomery averaged 24.8 touches over the final five games of 2020. In Week 1, he had a more modest workload, carrying 16 times for 108 yards and a touchdown, and catching his lone target for 10 yards. Williams, meanwhile, carried six times for 12 yards and caught 4 of 5 targets for 28 yards. This isn't a committee by any means, but Williams has a significant role. He's still not startable, however, and Monty remains a must-start.If the Falcons can't get Ridley untracked, they might as well pack up the equipment trucks and head back to Flowery Branch. Ridley had three catches for 39 yards on Atlanta's opening drive but then had just two catches for 12 yards the rest of the way. In Ridley's two games against the Falcons last year, he drew 26 targets and caught 18 balls for 215 yards and a touchdown.

 Ridley's huge season is off to a slow start, eh? Nothing to fear, fantasy football managers. Tampa Bay's strength is in stopping the run, but Dak Prescott had his way with the Bucs' secondary in Week 1, and Ridley should be able to get back on track as a locked-in WR1.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
There were a lot of talented RBs that I watched in week one, but none impressed me more than David Montgomery. He looked decisive, confident, fast, and an all-around impressive running back. The Rams run defense is not an easy unit to run on and Montgomery was gashing them for big gains repeatedly. The Bengals just kept Dalvin Cook relatively in check on the ground in week one, but that shouldn't scare us off of starting Montgomery as a high-end RB2 this week with upside. We all knew that Montgomery could wear down a defense with a heavy workload as the game progressed, but we haven't seen this level of speed from him before. Only two other RBs in the NFL finished with more Breakaway Yards than Montgomery. Fire him up with confidence this week.Calvin Ridley looked like he was about to see as many targets as Darren Waller would in week one as the game commenced, but that was essentially all she wrote for the talented wideout. With Ryan struggling immensely in this new offense, Ridley only was able to see eight total targets and he reeled in five of them for only 51 yards. This is concerning moving forward, especially if no other receiver is going to step up in this offense and help take some of the pressure off of Ridley. Without Julio, defenses are simply going to be able to key in on stopping Ridley and the whole offense might sputter. Ridley's still worth starting this week, of course, but we cannot view him as a locked-in WR1 up against Tampa Bay. Adjust your expectations for Ridley and view him as a mid-range WR2.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Montgomery had 118 yards from scrimmage and a rushing touchdown in the season opener against the LA Rams and he has a much better matchup at home against the Bengals this week. Montgomery is a solid RB1 in the Bears home opener.The Buccaneers were 32nd against fantasy wide receivers in the opener, but they also played a very tough Dallas passing offense. Diggs is a WR1 in this game, but I don't think the matchup is quite as good as it looks on paper.
