The touch count for the Bears through two weeks is: Montgomery 33, Cohen 15, and Cordarrelle Patterson 14 (yes, I'm counting him as a running back). The way to see that is that Montgomery is the leader in essentially a 55/45 timeshare. That's not great considering the Bears are 2-0 and the gamescript fit his role perfectly in Week 2. He's run extremely well, averaging 5.0 yards per carry, and made a few shifty moves in the open field last week that led to a 28-yard receiving touchdown, but will those positive gamescripts continue? They are three-point underdogs in this game, and the Falcons have stopped the run extremely well considering their competition. Despite playing against Ezekiel Elliott and Chris Carson, they've allowed just 3.45 yards per carry through two weeks. There seem to be a variety of ways to score, though, as Carson caught two touchdowns, Elliott rushed for one, while Dak Prescott rushed for three. Montgomery is going to get the goal-line, which is the positive here, as the Bears are implied for 22 points. Where the Falcons struggle is to limit running backs through the air, as they've allowed 15-of-16 passes to be completed for 85 yards and two touchdowns. Since Dan Quinn became the Falcons coach, they've allowed an average of 6.4 receptions per game to running backs. Montgomery can have his role diminish in a highly negative gamescript, though oddsmakers have this as a close game. Plug him in as a low-end RB2 this week. Cohen is officially someone I'm worried about with just three targets through two games. Montgomery has six targets. Heck, Javon Wims has four targets. Cohen is not an early-down back who's going to grind out a high yards per carry. If he's not getting the targets, you can't use him in fantasy. The Falcons matchup suits him well, especially indoors, but he must be classified as a risky RB4/flex with some upside should Matt Nagy actually use him in the passing game.If you didn't gauge the panic level of Chark's owner in your league this week, you're doing fantasy football wrong. He's the No. 1 receiver on this team and the flood gates are going to open soon. With Minshew using everyone on the field, it'll only take away the attention that Chark gets. This week will likely be a tough one to maintain his efficiency, but the Dolphins cornerback duo of Xavien Howard and Byron Jones haven't lived up to their reputation over the first two weeks. They allowed N'Keal Harry and Julian Edelman catch 10-of-13 balls for 96 yards (and almost a touchdown, had Harry not fumbled into the end zone), and then allowed Stefon Diggs and John Brown to rip them to shreds for 12 catches, 235 yards, and two touchdowns. It's likely due to the fact that their front seven isn't generating any pressure, leaving them out to dry in coverage. I'd like Chark more if he moved into the slot more than 17 percent of the time (his percentage to this point), as he'd evade the coverage of those two cornerbacks, but he's still talented enough to win. Because of that, he should be considered a high-end WR3 who should start seeing more targets. *Update* Byron Jones has been ruled out for this game, which is good news, but Chark himself is listed as a game-time decision with a chest injury. You'll want to check the inactive list right before Thursday night football.

Montgomery left last week's game with an injury scare, but he was able to come back in and continue to produce for fantasy football. Montgomery has looked great on the field against two easy matchups and he gets another fine matchup here with Atlanta. The Falcons are currently surrendering 22.2 fantasy points to running backs on average this season, which means that Montgomery should be in line for another solid outing. Montgomery can be rolled out as a low-end RB2 this week that could easily find the end zone in this one.Chark has been relatively quiet through the first two weeks of the season and there are now concerns about whether he's going to be able to suit up for this game. At the time of writing, we haven't received any further word, which makes Chark a risky play this week. If he does play, Chark should be viewed as nothing more than a WR3 due to the fact that he'll be less than 100%.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Falcons are 23rd against fantasy running backs, I like MontgomeryChark is hurt by playing on a slow-paced offense that does not run a ton of plays and does not throw the ball deep. His big-play ability keeps him in the WR3 range, but he is boom / bust given the Jaguars offensive tendencies through 2 weeks.
