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 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Minnesota Vikings

David Montgomery put up another mediocre performance last week, finishing with just 59 scrimmage yards. He hasn't scored a rushing touchdown in seven straight games, and has averaged 60 scrimmage yards in that stretch. He's getting plenty of opportunities with 10+ carries in every game during that stretch, but he's just not producing a whole lot. This week he'll face a Vikings defense he struggled against earlier in the season (21 carries, 53 yards). He's not much more than a low-end RB2 or a flex play in Week 17.
