CHI RB David Montgomery - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Detroit Lions

David Montgomery didn't have a great game last week, rushing 14 times for 58 yards and catching just one target for nine yards. But he did absolutely dominate the backfield by playing 95% of the offensive snaps, with other Bears' backs totaling one touch. It's a little surprising the Bears didn't incorporate Khalil Herbert at all following his success with Montgomery sidelined, but it's clear there will be no timeshare in this backfield. That'll be a good thing for Montgomery owners heading into Week 12 as he draws a favorable matchup vs. the Lions. Detroit is allowing the third-most fantasy points to opposing running backs this year. With Justin Fields and Allen Robinson both likely sidelined, it would make sense for the Bears to lean on a run-heavy script and give Montgomery the ball plenty. We wouldn't be surprised if he saw 20+ touches this week. He should be viewed as a solid RB1 play in Week 12.
