Montgomery finished as the No. 4 running back last season (half-PPR) after a No. 25 finish the year before. He was more efficient (3.7 YPC in 2019 versus 4.3 YPC last year) and saw a big spike in catches (25 to 54), thanks in no small part to the absence of Tarik Cohen, who missed the final 13 games of the season. Cohen’s return is some cause for concern. Over the past two seasons, Montgomery has averaged 21.0 touches and 16.9 fantasy points in the 12 games that Cohen has missed. When Cohen has been active, Montgomery has averaged 16.6 touches and 10.1 fantasy points. Nothing had changed as recently as early last season. In Cohen’s three active games, Montgomery averaged 52% of the snaps. His playing time spiked to 80% for the remainder of the season. In positive news, Adam Jahns of The Athletic predicted that Montgomery would be the team’s MVP, adding, “The Bears expect him to surpass all those  numbers in his third season.” Montgomery’s career receiving numbers–7.9 yards per catch, 76.7% catch rate–are now better than Cohen’s (7.5, 76.0%).
