2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
I was leery about Montgomery last summer when he was the top rookie runner being selected, sometimes in the top-three rounds and those fears came to fruition as Chicago seemed unwilling and unable to give Montgomery the workhorse role he needed to be a fantasy difference maker. Tarik Cohen siphoned nearly all of the backfield receptions away and despite finishing 14th in rushing attempts; Montgomery's efficiency with those touches (3.7 yards-per-carry) was dreadful. The wiggle and power he displayed in the pre-season (where he and the entire Chicago offense were mothballed for a month) was nowhere to be found in the regular season as he failed to generate yardage on his own. When you have a bad offensive line and only get what's blocked, bad things happen.

I really can't say I'm overly bullish on Montgomery's fantasy prospects in Year 2. Cohen is still there to own the majority of the 3rd down and hurry up receptions, and while Montgomery's rushing volume is sure to hover around the top-10 at the position, the offensive line hasn't made enough meaningful additions to move the needle from their low-tier 2019 rating. Chicago just can't seem to figure out any type of identity or consistency on offense, and maybe Foles helps here, but short of a major shift on offense, or an injury to Cohen, Montgomery feels like an upside RB3 at best in 2020.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury David Montgomery out for Week 10
Concussion
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Nov 14, 2:39 pm

Chicgao Bears
Bears RB David Montgomery (concussion) has been ruled out for Monday’s game vs. the Vikings. TE Cole Kmet (groin), OT Jason Spriggs (knee), LB Barkevious Mingo (shoulder) & WR Allen Robinson (knee) are questionable. (Jeff Dickerson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Lamar Miller could be an option but he would need to be called up from the practice squad. Ryan Nall and Cordarrelle Patterson would currently project to handle the bulk of the running back work on Monday night against the Vikings.


Injury David Montgomery dealing with a concussion
Week 10 status unkown

RB David Montgomery is in concussion protocol. (NFL Network - James Palmer)

FFToday's Take: One of fantasy's few workhorse backs, Montgomery hasn't been able to move past low-end RB2 value in most leagues due in large part to working behind a bad offensive line. Ryan Nall and Cordarrelle Patterson would likely split reps in Week 10 against the Vikings if Montgomery can't clear protocol in time, but neither one is worth using as anything more than a low-end flex.


Injury Bears fear torn ACL for Tarik Cohen
Absence will be felt on offense and special teams
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 28, 8:50 am

Chicgao Bears
The #Bears fear RB Tarik Cohen has a torn ACL that would end his season, while a big QB decision looms... but how much of a decision is it? (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Cohen's had a relatively quiet start to the 2020 season, failing to find the endzone in the first three games. With Cohen out, the Bears could use David Montgomery more in the passing game. Montgomery's fantasy stock is on the rise.


Injury David Montgomery expected to play
Groin injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 13, 7:03 am

Chicgao Bears
#Bears RB David Montgomery, listed as questionable with a groin injury, is expected to play today vs the #Lions, source says. He should receive his full workload. … WR Cordarrelle Patterson (knee, questionable) is also good to go. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Montgomery's groin injury looked bad a couple weeks ago but he's made a good enough recovery to suit up in Week 1. He's in Flex, low-end RB2 consideration this week against the Lions.


Injury David Montgomery on track for Week 1
Quick recovery from groin injury

Bears RB David Montgomery was a full participant in today’s practice. He’s on track to play Sunday against the Lions. (ESPN - Field Yates)

FFToday's Take: It would take a huge leap of faith to play Montgomery this week, but his fantasy owners could not expected to get him back so soon after the worst was initially feared about two weeks ago. The second-year back reportedly dropped a bit of weight this season and he locked into a ton of volume once again, making him a serviceable RB2 with decent upside if HC Matt Nagy quits trying to prove he's the smartest guy in the room and plays to the strengths of his team better in 2020.
