Draft note
by John Paulsen
Montgomery finished the season as the No. 25 running back despite seeing the 12th-most touches, so to say that he was inefficient would be an understatement. The good news is that the Bears did nothing at the position that would threaten Montgomery’s sizable workload. There’s more bad news though: the Bears didn’t do anything to improve their offensive line, which was 29th in Football Outsiders’ Adjusted Line Yards. Montgomery could improve in his second season, and given his current ADP, he’s a low-risk/high-volume pick in the fifth round. Prospective owners should know that he scored fewer than 7.0 fantasy points (PPR) in six of his last eight games.

CHI RB David Montgomery - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Carolina Panthers

The Bears have turned to David Montgomery as a receiving threat as he nearly matched his carries (10) with receptions (7) last week. With Tarik Cohen out, Montgomery has now seen six and eight targets in back-to-back weeks, respectively. Montgomery found the endzone last week, but otherwise wasn't terribly productive with 59 yards on 17 touches. He should be more productive this week in a favorable matchup against the Panthers, who are 32 in aFPA. The Panthers have allowed a league-high nine touchdowns to running backs. Carolina is also tied with Atlanta in giving up the most receptions to running backs this season. With Montgomery's increased role as a receiver, it wouldn't be surprising if he had 5+ receptions. He should be viewed as a low-end RB1 or a strong RB2 play this week.
