2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
A bright spot in an otherwise dreary season for Chicago, Montgomery would likely have had a career year if not for a four-game absence due to a knee injury. Before getting hurt in Week 4, Montgomery already had two 100+ yard games, and 3 touchdowns. While his rushing numbers sunk down the stretch, rookie quarterback Justin Fields peppered him with targets. Buoyed by the 10th most touches in the NFL, Montgomery was a solid RB2 option for 2021.

So, what can we expect in 2022 for the 4th-year back? Well for starters, he is one of the few three-down workhorse backs in the NFL, with only 6th round pick Khalil Herbert behind him. Although he desperately needs Fields to progress to truly move beyond a mid-tier RB2, Montgomery will get enough volume to remain in the fantasy starter conversation. His overall numbers are capped by a lack of efficiency, and likely growing pains of the offense. There is also a chance the new administration gives a longer, more consistent look at Herbert as a cheaper, long-term option. With a chance to set a career high in receptions, I do like Montgomery a round or two more in PPR than I do in standard leagues.

Injury Khalil Herbert out for at least a month
Hip injury

FFToday's Take: Herbert's production has taken a hit since Justin Fields started monopolizing the running game about five weeks ago, but he was still one of the better stories of the season so far - especially in Weeks 3 and 4 when David Montgomery was injured. With Herbert out of the picture - possibly for the rest of the year - Montgomery should return to a workhorse role and be considered a strong RB2 option at worst moving forward. Trestan Ebner could work into the mix as well, but he is unlikely to be all that relevant for fantasy purposes this year.


Injury David Montgomery expected to play
Limits the value of Khalil Herbert

Chicgao Bears
Bears’ RB David Montgomery, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a knee injury, plans to play against the Vikings barring any pregame setbacks, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Montgomery missed Week 4 with a knee injury allowing Khalil Herbert to have the backfield mostly to himself, posting a 19-77-0, 1-24-0 line while ceding a few touches to Trestan Ebner. With Montgomery back in the mix, he may be more of a middling RB2 this week if the coaches decided to keep Herbert more involved.

FFToday's Take: We'll monitor Montgomery's practice status on Friday as his availability will have a huge impact on the fantasy value of backup Khalil Herbert. The Bears travel to Minnesota in Week 5.


Injury Bears rule out David Montgomery
Ankle injury

Chicgao Bears
Bears ruled out David Montgomery (ankle), and Khalil Herbert to start for Chicago coming off big game against Texans. (Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Montgomery missed practice all week and has now been ruled out, meaning we'll get Herbert in a starting role against the Giants. He should see the bulk of carries after his 20-157-2, 2-12-0 line last week against Houston making him an easy RB2 with RB1 upside in all leagues.


David Montgomery to be OK for Week 4?
Suffered lower leg injury in Week 3
By: Doug Orth | Tue Sep 27, 11:55 pm

Chicgao Bears
David Montgomery is going to be day to day according to Matt Eberflus. He said there are a “couple things going on” with his lower leg injury but said he’s “good” right now. (ESPN - Courtney Cronin)

FFToday's Take: There is some belief that Montgomery is dealing with an ankle injury. It would seem HC Matt Eberflus is of the opinion he will be able to go this weekend against the Giants. Either way, one would think Khalil Herbert earned the right to prove himself as a 1B back in this offense as opposed to a traditional backup with his Week 3 effort. Even if Montgomery is active in Week 4, fantasy managers in deeper leagues can make a case to play both.
