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 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Denver Broncos

David Montgomery had the fewest amount of snaps in Week 1 among the Bears' backfield options. He saw fewer snaps (28) than Mike Davis (41) and Tarik Cohen (51), although he did lead the way in carries with six for 18 yards. He also caught a pass for 27 yards, although it was his lone target on the night. The Montgomery hype train has been derailed thanks to the Davis, who ended up having bigger role than many projected.

Montgomery will still be involved in the offense, but until Davis is out of the picture, it'll be hard for him to live up to his draft-day value. He gets a decent matchup this week against the Broncos, who nearly allowed 100 yards on the ground last week. We like Montgomery as an RB3 option.
