Draft note
by John Paulsen
In an effort to become less predictable, the Bears traded away Jordan Howard and signed Mike Davis (34 catches last year in a part-time role with the Seahawks) before drafting Montgomery in the third round. Montgomery was reportedly “a problem” for the Bears’ defense in spring workouts and led “the rookies, if not the entire team” in big plays this offseason. HC Matt Nagy praised Montgomery’s route-running and said that the team knew he had “great hands.” Montgomery is the clear favorite to lead the team in carries, though he’ll have to deal with Tarik Cohen if he hopes to have a major role as a pass-catcher. One thing to note: When I studied "trade up" running backs earlier in the offseason, I found that third round "trade up" running backs outscored their counterparts by 54% in their rookie seasons.

CHI RB David Montgomery - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs. New Orleans Saints

David Montgomery is Chicago's primary backfield option and he's emerged as a decent fantasy option. He struggled against the Raiders in Chicago's last outing, rushing 11 times for 25 yards, but he was able to score for the second time this season. Before that game, though, he averaged about 60 yards per game on the ground with a few receptions sprinkled in. Expect that type of performance this week in a tough matchup against the Saints. He should be viewed as a low-end RB2 or a strong flex play in Week 7.
