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.Prior to the start of the season, I said that there's a chance we see Metcalf truly breakout as a top-10 receiver. Through two weeks, he's flashed some of the reason we loved him and currently sits as the WR7. Not only is he averaging seven targets, but they're coming from Russell Wilson, and he has one-play upside. Despite being matched up with Stephon Gilmore last week, he managed to walk away with four catches for 92 yards and a touchdown. He's matchup-proof until further notice. The Cowboys have not been a matchup to avoid, either. Through two games, they're allowing the eighth-most fantasy points per target to wide receivers. The Cowboys cornerbacks play sides, and they flip-flopped from Week 1 to Week 2, and it seemed to screw something up with Chidobe Awuzie, because he allowed two touchdowns in his coverage. He allowed just three touchdowns all of last season... on 90 targets. He also suffered an apparent hamstring injury in that game and may not play this week. The other cornerback is rookie Trevon Diggs, who has allowed 7-of-11 passing for 123 yards through two games. In a game they're projected for 30 points, there's little reason to fade Metcalf, who should be considered a low-end WR1/WR2 at the very least.

FantasyPros
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.Metcalf has top-10 upside in this matchup. The Cowboys are struggling to stop opposing WRs, as mentioned above, and Metcalf always has a chance of reeling in a perfectly thrown deep ball from Wilson to make his fantasy day. Both Seattle WRs should be viewed as top options this week.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Falcons are 23rd against fantasy running backs, I like MontgomeryMetcalf looks like the real deal, especially with Russell Wilson playing out of his mind right now. He is a WR1 against the Cowboys, especially with them being 26th against fantasy wide receivers early in the season.
