  Bears | David Montgomery locked down by Bucs    Fri Oct 9, 01:46 AM

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery carried the ball 10 times for 29 yards and a touchdown during the team's Week 5 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He also caught seven passes for 30 yards.

Footballguys view: Montgomery didn't find much room to run against the impenetrable Bucs run defense, but he was active as a receiver and got the Bears first rushing score of the year to put up a good PPR result in Week 5. He's a clear lead back and high floor RB2 for fantasy heading into a matchup with Carolina.

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery (groin) is expected to play in Week 1's game against the Detroit Lions and receive his normal workload, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Montgomery is still a low ceiling RB2 and there's risk of reinjury here, but this has gone about as well as you could have hoped for Montgomery since he hurt his groin in late August.

  Bears | Chicago's injury report for Week 1    Fri Sep 11, 03:02 PM

Chicago Bears LB Robert Quinn (ankle) did not practice all week and has been listed as doubtful for Week 1 versus the Detroit Lions. LB Khalil Mack (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable. RB David Montgomery (groin), WR Cordarrelle Patterson (knee), LT Jason Spriggs (knee), WR Javon Wims (Achilles), OG Germain Ifedi (triceps) and CB Buster Skrine (finger) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 11, and have been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: The Bears pass rush will be weakened against a Lions offensive line that will be missing their right tackle, so these issues could cancel each other out. Either way, it's still not a great week to play Matthew Stafford with Kenny Golladay out.

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery (groin) was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 11, and is listed as questionable on the team's Week 1 injury report.

  Bears | David Montgomery playing it safe    Thu Sep 10, 01:38 PM

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery (groin) said Thursday, Sept. 10, he's been playing it cautious with his groin injury. 'I didn't do much in practice (Wednesday),' he said. 'I want to be safe.' Montgomery added that when the injury originally happened (Aug. 26), he feared he had 'torn something,' but there didn't turn out to be a tear.

Footballguys view: Montgomery may be able to play in Week 1. His status for the season opener looks better as his practice status was upgraded to full. He could play but the team might limit his snap count. If Montgomery is limited we could see more from Ryan Nall with Tarik Cohen still working as a pass-catching back.

  Bears | David Montgomery causing optimism    Wed Sep 9, 06:50 PM

Updating a previous story, Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery (groin) has the team optimistic he'll be able to play in Week 1 despite being a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 9, according to Adam Caplan of Sirius XM NFL Radio.

Footballguys view: Montgomery's groin injury complicates things for the Bears backfield. If Montgomery can't play in the season opener, who is going to get the majority of the carries? Ryan Nall might be an option and we could see WR Cordarrelle Patterson get some carries too.

  Bears | David Montgomery out 2-4 weeks    Thu Aug 27, 11:51 AM

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery (groin) is expected two to four weeks with a groin injury. He has a chance to be ready for the season opener.

Footballguys view: There is a chance he's ready for the opener and there's a chance he misses Week 1 against the Lions. Fantasy GMs will have Montgomery as a flex play when he's healthy. The Bears have Tarik Cohen, Cordarrelle Patterson, Ryan Nall and Artavis Pierce working to establish a pecking order behind Montgomery.

Footballguys view: Getting the cart out is never a good sign. The most recent reports indicate that Montgomery injured his groin but has likely dodged a more serious injury. Stay tuned as more testing is being done on the young running back.

  Bears | David Montgomery aims to get quicker    Sat Aug 22, 03:23 PM

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery said Saturday, Aug. 22, he's focused on his diet and losing weight this offseason after he was disappointed in his quickness and speed in 2019.

Footballguys view: Montgomery correctly identified what was holding him back last year, along with some indecisiveness on his carries that exacerbated the effect of the speed/quickness deficiency. He is a healthy amount of work for his ADP and if he improves, he'll be a value as a discount RB2 in drafts.

  Bears | David Montgomery eyes improvement    Sat Jun 20, 10:17 PM

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery said he is better prepared to lead the backfield in 2020 and expects improvement in a running game that ranked 27th in the NFL in rushing yards, 28th in rushing touchdowns and 29th in yards per carry last year.

Footballguys view: Montgomery is about as cheap as any clear lead back in fantasy drafts, and there's hope that Nick Foles will improve the offense, but he's still going in a part of drafts that is fertile ground for upside wide receivers so taking him has some opportunity cost. The Bears don't have anyone else of consequence beyond Tarik Cohen at running back, so it's Montgomery or bust for them at running back this yaer.

  Bears | No luck after contact for David Montgomery    Tue Jun 9, 08:49 PM

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery averaged 1.6 yards after contact as a rusher in 2019 - tied for the second-worst mark among qualified rushers.

Footballguys view: Montgomery has size but he did nothing when contacted. We'll see if the team can spring him better holes to help him build a head of steam that will help these after-contact numbers. Montgomery is a RB2/RB3 for Fantasy GMs in 2020 with a current ADP of RB23 (4.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bears | David Montgomery controlled red-zone duties    Sat Jun 6, 05:36 PM

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery received 26 red-zone carries and scored five touchdowns on those carries in 2019. RB Tarik Cohen had just six red-zone carries with one touchdown.

Footballguys view: Montgomery got a ton of work near pay dirt, but he failed to have a high conversion rate on those carries. He's a low-end RB2 for Fantasy GMs because Cohen takes most all the targets int he passing game. Montgomery could outperform his current ADP (RB23, 4.05) if he becomes more efficient in the red zone.

  Bears | David Montgomery can be featured back    Tue Feb 25, 04:25 PM

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery can be the team's featured back and carry a heavier load if the team chooses to run more in 2020, according to general manager Ryan Pace Tuesday, Feb. 25.

Footballguys view: Montgomery had a disappointing rookie season for the Bears in 2019. We'll see if he's ready to do more for the team this season. It sounds like that's going to be the case so long as he can respond with production.

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery (ankle) is active for the Week 11 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

  Bears | David Montgomery a game-time decision    Sat Nov 16, 08:25 AM

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery (ankle) is considered a game-time decision for Week 11's game against the Los Angeles Rams, according to head coach Matt Nagy.

Footballguys view: His status and the matchup make Montgomery a RB3 or flex play...if he plays in Week 11. The Bears might just go with more Tarik Cohen and Ryan Nall if Montgomery can't play.

  Bears | David Montgomery back at practice    Fri Nov 15, 02:19 PM

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery (ankle) returned to a limited practice Friday, Nov. 15, after sitting out Thursday, Nov. 14, with an ankle injury. He is expected to be listed as questionable for Week 11 versus the Los Angeles Rams.

Footballguys view: Montgomery could play, but he might be limited in effectiveness and the Bears running game was already having enough trouble getting him going. He's not a good play this weekend. Ryan Nall was just added and could get more work if Montgomery is out Sunday night.

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery (ankle) 'lightly rolled' his ankle in practice Wednesday, Nov. 13, head coach Matt Nagy said Thursday. Montgomery was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday.

Footballguys view: Montgomery didn't practice today and is questionable at best for Sunday night. Because it's a night game, you'll have to have a hedge to play Montgomery, and his ceiling might not be good enough to justify it anyway. Tarik Cohen and Ryan Nall would be see more work if Montgomery can't go against the Rams.

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery rushed 17 times for 60 yards in Week 10 against the Detroit Lions and he did not have any receptions or targets.

Footballguys view: The Bears controlled this game, but Montgomery was still held to a marginal fantasy day because he didn't score or get involved in the passing game. He's a low ceiling option at the Rams next week.

  Bears | David Montgomery heating up    Fri Nov 8, 10:08 PM

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery has 223 totals yards and three touchdowns on 48 touches over the past two games after logging 316 total yards and two touchdowns on 82 touches in his first six games.

Footballguys view: The Bears forgot to run earlier in the season, but they've featured plenty of Montgomery in recent weeks. That's a good thing for the talented rookie...and it's good for their offense as they can't rely on QB Mitchell Trubisky to do much of anything.

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery posted 14 runs for 40 yards and two touchdowns in Week 9 against the Philadelphia Eagles while posting three grabs for 36 yards on four targets.

Footballguys view: Montgomery got free for a few nice gains and scored twice from short range, but never really got in a groove despite the good fantasy result. This will give us hope to play him against Detroit next week.

  Bears | David Montgomery sees season-high workload    Tue Oct 29, 08:29 PM

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery played a season-high 73% of the offensive snaps against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 8.

Footballguys view: The Bears didn't win, but at least they didn't forget about running the ball. With their defense and with the struggles of QB Mitchell Trubisky, the Bears should lean on their ground game as much as possible. Montgomery has RB2 upside for Fantasy GMs but his inconsistent usage makes him more of a flex play.

Footballguys view: Montgomery had a 55-yard run to key his big day and the Bears never went away from the run. He'll face a stiff Eagles run defense next week and will still be only a flex play.
