It's perhaps a bit surprising because most perhaps expected Williams to control this backfield. But it looks like the team has plans for Herbert. Herbert carried 18 times for 75 yards while Williams ran 16 times for 64, and also added the TD. With Justin Fields at QB, the Bears seem like they'd love to take some pressure off the rookie and run the ball. Herbert should be grabbed off the wires for his upside.
CHI RB David Montgomery - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 4 vs. Detroit Lions
The Bears' offense struggled to do much of anything in Week 3, so David Montgomery suffered as a result. Montgomery saw a season-low 10 carries for 34 yards while catching two of four targets for 21 yards. Montgomery's 12 touches were less than he had in any game last season, and he only had fewer in two games as a rookie in 2019. The Bears' offense shouldn't be quite that bad again in Week 4, especially in a favorable matchup against Detroit. The Lions have given up six total touchdowns to running backs this season, the most of any team. We're expecting Montgomery to bounce back in Week 4 in the low-end RB1 range.
