2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
With one-dimensional Jordan Howard jettisoned to the Eagles, 3rd round pick David Montgomery from Iowa State has a chance to be the versatile workhorse that this offense wants to deploy. Hand selected by Nagy and the front office to be the workhorse of the offense, Montgomery flashed an impressive set of NFL-ready skills while at Iowa State. Going over 1,000 yards in each of his final two seasons with the Cyclones, Montgomery also tallied 71 total receptions in his collegiate career. The off-season hype has been in overdrive, with talk of potential offensive rookie-of-the-year honors. With Howard's 250 carries up for grabs, Montgomery has the scheme fit and talent to make a big fantasy impact in Year 1.

With his ADP already in the early 4th round and continually rising, Montgomery is being picked as a high end No.2 back. I know the pad-less puff pieces have been glowing, but remember, the Bears also added veteran Mike Davis, who churned out 700+ total yards and 5 touchdowns in part-time work for the Seahawks last season. Montgomery is going to have to bring it in camp to earn the starting role over Davis, and that isn't a given to happen. Overall I love Montgomery's upside in this offense, and I do think he has a chance to be a fantasy asset, but he's not nearly the value he would have been a month ago, and I fear if early camp notes are as positive as they've been, his ADP is going to move into the early 3rd round. Andy Reid-style offenses have typically relied on one main workhorse, and maybe the Bears are hoping to recreate the magic of Kareem Hunt's rookie year, but the presence of Davis and Cohen have to factor into your decision.

Injury David Montgomery injures ankle
Status uncertain for Week 11
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 14, 7:55 pm

Chicgao Bears
David Montgomery “lightly” rolled his ankle on Wednesday, Bears coach Matt Nagy said, but the impact of his injury could be anything but. The rookie running back sat out Thursday, one day after rolling his ankle during the team’s Wednesday practice. “We wanted to keep him out and we’ll just keep an eye on him for here [Thursday] with how things go,” Nagy said. Nagy, who typically puts out an optimistic tone about injuries, was noncommittal when asked whether Montgomery was in danger of missing Sunday night’s game against the Rams. The Bears could turn to receiver Cordarrelle Patterson, who they’ve used as a power back at times this season. (Chicago Sun-Times)

FFToday's Take: Ryan Nall and Tarik Cohen are the only true running backs left on the roster after Mike Davis was waived last weekend. It sounds as if Patterson could be a factor if Montgomery is forced to sit. The Bears play on Sunday night against the Rams, who have been quite stingy against running backs of late. If owners are trying to decide between Montgomery and someone else this week, it may be wise to go with the other option.
