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 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Los Angeles Rams

David Montgomery's value has significantly been impacted by the loss of Tarik Cohen. Montgomery went from averaging 51% of the offensive snaps in three games with Cohen to averaging 83% of the offensive snaps in three games without Cohen. He's also benefited as a receiver, averaging three targets per game with Cohen to averaging 6.3 without him. The interesting part, however, is Montgomery has totaled fewer yards without Cohen (213 yards) than with (255). So even though he's been on the field more often, the production hasn't quite been there. Despite Montgomery not being a dominant back, he's still been productive as an RB2 back. He gets a decent matchup against the Rams (No. 18 aFPA) in Week 7 where he'll be a low-end RB1, or high-end RB2 play.
