Is Montgomery a plodder? Sure. Is it all his fault he doesn't have success? No. Montgomery averages 3.02 yards after contact, which ranks 22nd among the 64 running backs who've carried the ball at least 50 times. The Bears running backs are averaging a league-low 1.00 yards before contact. The good news is that the Lions have allowed ball carriers a massive 2.45 yards before contact this year, which ranks as the fourth-highest number in the league. Not only have the Lions allowed the most fantasy points per game to running backs, but even when you factor in the level of competition, they're the best matchup in the league based on schedule adjusted rankings, as running backs have averaged a league-high 8.3 more half-PPR points per game against the Lions than they do in non-Lions matchups. Of the fantasy production the Lions allow to skill-position players, we've watched running backs score 40.0 percent of those points, which is the second-highest mark in the NFL. Who's the only team who's allowed more? The team he played last week (Packers). It certainly doesn't hurt to know the Lions have allowed a league-high 14 rushing touchdowns and seven receiving touchdowns to running backs. That's 21 touchdowns they've allowed to running backs, while no other team in the league has allowed more than 16. There are just three teams in the league who allow more than 16.5 fantasy points per game on the ground to running backs, and the 19.3 points the Lions have allowed certainly qualifies as one of them. It's not just on the ground, as the Lions allow a massive 13.8 PPR points per game through the air alone to running backs, which ranks as the second-most in the NFL. The average RB1 performance in 2019 was 17.2 PPR points, which is a number that nine running backs have hit against the Lions. No other team has allowed more than seven such performances. Montgomery should be considered a high-end RB2 this week. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Montgomery had 23 fantasy points last week in a great matchup at Green Bay and he could have similar success against the Lions 32nd ranked fantasy running back defense. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Montgomery cracked the 100-yard mark last week, but it was buoyed by one giant run. With the Bears playing catch-up all game, Montgomery wasn't utilized much on the ground, but he came through with a receiving touchdown. This is another fantastic matchup for opposing RBs and Montgomery should be viewed as a safe, mid-range RB2 again with upside.
