Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery (gluteus, groin, shoulder) missed practice on Wednesday with a trio of injuries. It's unclear if any one of these injuries is serious enough to keep him from playing in Week 14 against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night, but rookie Khalil Herbert is worth stashing just in case if he's available on the waiver wire in your league. Montgomery has seen double-digit carries in all eight games he's played, so he's an RB2 as the workhorse back for this offense when he's healthy. Herbert looked really good in his two starts in place of Montgomery earlier this year, carrying 37 times for 197 yards (5.32 yards per carry) and a touchdown, also adding seven catches for 48 yards on eight targets. We'll have a better idea on Montgomery's status after the next couple days of practice.
Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery carried the ball 21 times for 90 yards and added eight receptions for 51 yards with one touchdown in the Bears 33-22 loss to the Cardinals. The Bears offense suffered throughout the game with quarterback Andy Dalton tossing four interceptions but Montgomery was fantastic out of the backfield. When Montgomery gets consistent touches in a game, good things happen. The third-year running back's 29 touches is a new season-high and the Bears would be wise to continue to ride Montgomery moving forward.
Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery will go up against a Cardinals defense in Week 13 that is allowing the ninth fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. Arizona was terrorized by the Panthers Christian McCaffrey in Week 10 but have allowed only four total touchdowns to the running back position all season. The Bears leaned on 39 pass attempts from quarterback Andy Dalton on Thanksgiving but would be wise to find a way to generate more touches for Montgomery. Touchdowns and yards have been tough for Montgomery from a fantasy perspective this season but is averaging 16.14 carries this season. Montgomery will represent low-end RB2 value for Week 13.
Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery carried the ball 17 times for 46 yards and added three receptions for 28 yards in the Bears 16-14 win over the Lions in Week 12. The Bears running game typically is a top-five outfit but struggled to find rhythm in this game. Montgomery was able to churn out some hard-fought first downs but rarely got the opportunity to really get cooking. Montgomery will have a tough matchup against the Cardinals in Week 13.
Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery will take on a Lions defense on Thanksgiving that is allowing the third most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season. Montgomery returned to the lineup three weeks ago but has failed to make a significant fantasy impact. But he will face a Lions defense that has allowed 15 total touchdowns to opposing runners and 11 different backs have posted at least 14 fantasy points against them. With backup Andy Dalton under center, expect a heavy volume for touches for Montgomery Thanksgiving morning.
Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery carried the ball 14 times for 58 yards in the team's 16-13 loss to the Ravens in Week 11. Once starting quarterback Justin Fields left the game with a rib injury, the Bears by-and-large ditched the running game with veteran Andy Dalton under center. Montgomery was unable to find a rhythm in this game but should be back on the RB2 radar when the Bears take on the Lions in Thanksgiving morning to kickoff Week 12.
Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery returned to the field in Week 9, carrying the ball 13 times for 63 yards with 17 receiving yards in the Bears heartbreaking loss to the Steelers in Week 9. Montgomery was activated off the IR this week from a knee injury and dominated most of the backfield snaps. Montgomery got off to a slow start but churned out some patented hard-nose runs for first downs as the game went on. The Bears will be on Bye next week but Montgomery's return signals a steep decline in rookie Khalil Herbert's fantasy value for Week 11.
The Chicago Bears officially activated running back David Montgomery (knee) from Injured Reserve in time for Monday night's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers to close out Week 9. Montgomery will be active for the first time since spraining his knee on Oct. 3, but fantasy managers should expect him to be eased back in behind rookie Khalil Herbert, who has been impressive filling in as the team's primary back in recent weeks. Damien Williams (knee) has already been ruled out after injuring his knee in last week's loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Montgomery can't be trusted to starting lineups in his first game in a month, while this could be Herbert's final game with RB2 upside.
Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy said that "there's a really good chance" that running back David Montgomery (knee) is activated from Injured Reserve and plays on Monday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Bears could use him back with Damien Williams (knee) already ruled out for Week 9. Montgomery has been on IR since going down with a knee injury in Week 4. Even if he's active against Pittsburgh, he's likely to have a limited role behind rookie Khalil Herbert, who took over this backfield with Montgomery injured before Williams hurt his knee last week. Montgomery's fantasy managers should be happy to have him back, but they should hold off reinserting him into their fantasy lineups this weekend. Herbert should remain firmly in the RB2 range for one more game.
The Chicago Bears opened the 21-day practice window for running back David Montgomery (knee) on Thursday, and the team is hoping to get him at least some work on Monday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 9. That means that the Bears are planning to activate Montgomery from Injured Reserve at some point later this week or weekend. He's been on the shelf since Week 5 due to an MCL sprain, but it sounds like he'd only be playing a limited role should he appear in Monday's game against Pittsburgh. Rookie Khalil Herbert has performed well in his absence and has surpassed Damien Williams on the depth chart, earning weekly RB2 status for likely one more week. The Bears will be on their bye in Week 10.
Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery (knee) will return from the Injured Reserve window and practice on Thursday. Montgomery was placed on IR with an MCL sprain in Week 5, and the Bears now have 21 days to activate him to the active roster. With Chicago's bye coming in Week 10, the safe money is on the Bears waiting to bring Montgomery back in Week 11. Rookie sixth-rounder Khalil Herbert has seen at least 18 carries in four games since Week 5, totaling 78 attempts for 344 yards and one touchdown on the ground while catching nine of 10 targets for an additional 44 yards with Montgomery out. He has surpassed Damien Williams on the depth chart and will once again be a strong usage-based RB2 in Week 9 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night if Montgomery isn't activated by then.
It sounds as though Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery (knee) is on track to resume practicing this week, according to sources. Montgomery remains on Injured Reserve, however, and the Bears have yet to open up his 21-day practice window, so the expectation is that he won't return until after the team's Week 10 bye. Montgomery went down with an MCL sprain and was placed on IR in Week 5 on Oct. 9. Rookie Khalil Herbert has taken over this backfield from Damien Williams with Montgomery on the shelf, and it looks like Herbert will be the primary back for at least one more week this Monday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Montgomery will eventually handle the majority of the work in the backfield when he's ready, but Herbert has also played well enough to continue being involved.
Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery(knee) will not be activated from Injured Reserve ahead of Sunday's game against the 49ers despite being eligible to return. RookieKhalil Herbert has really shined as Montgomery works to come back from his knee injury and figures to be the lead back in Chicago for at least another week or two. However, his matchup is a tough one this week against a 49ers defense that leads the league in fantasy points allowed to running backs. We did see Herbert have success against a stout Bucs defense last week, and his floor is raised a bit due to his passing-down work, but he's likely more of a low-end RB2/flex option this week.
The Athletic's Kevin Fishbain expects Chicago Bears rookie running back Khalil Herbert, not Damien Williams, to be the first one off the bench to spell David Montgomery (knee) when he returns from his injury. Herbert has been great in the last two games and has shown plenty of versatility in the backfield. Williams, who remains on the COVID-19 list, could play more of a niche role as a pass-catcher on third downs once this backfield is completely healthy. With both Montgomery and Williams out in Week 6 against the Green Bay Packers, Herbert had 19 carries for 97 yards and a touchdown and added two catches for 15 yards. There's a chance Williams won't be cleared by Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which would make Herbert at least an RB3/flex option for fantasy managers again.
Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery (knee) has been officially placed on injured reserve as of Saturday due to a knee sprain that is expected to keep him out of action for the next 3-5 weeks. Ryan Nall was brought up from the practice squad in a flurry of moves, but he figures to serve as the team's No. 3 option out of the backfield. Damien Williams stands to get run as the Bears' primary running back, giving him RB2 upside in the vast majority of season-long formats. Montgomery was off to a terrific start in 2021 with two games over the 100-yard mark on the ground to go along with three rushing touchdowns. He can be kept on IR until his return, although those managers without injuries slots face a more nuanced conundrum.
Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery has a knee sprain and reportedly will miss the next four to five weeks. The Bears RB suffered a left knee injury in Sunday's win over the Detroit Lions and did not return. The 24-year-old underwent an MRI on Monday, which revealed a knee sprain. He is expected to be placed on the short-term injured reserve and will be out of action for at least four weeks. Damien Williams (thigh) will be the Bears' primary running back while Montgomery is sidelined. Williams is dealing with a thigh bruise, but should be all systems go for Week 5 against the Las Vegas Raiders. The 29-year-old carried the ball eight times for 55 yards and a touchdown against Detroit. Fantasy managers should look to add Williams off the waiver wire and considered him an RB3/flex option in Week 5.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Chicago Bears don't believe running back David Montgomery (knee) tore his ACL in Sunday's Week 4 win over the Detroit Lions. He suffered a left knee injury in Sunday's win and did not return. The 24-year-old is scheduled to undergo an MRI, and a timeline for the Bears running back return will be more precise once the results are in. Fantasy managers should continue to monitor the situation as the Bears are expected to provide an update soon. Damien Williams would be the Bears' primary running back if Montgomery were to miss any games. He rushed for 55 yards on eight carries and a touchdown in Week 4. Williams hurt his quad in Week 4, and head coach Matt Nagy offered no updates on either running back. Stay tuned.
Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery (knee) will have an MRI on Monday. Montgomery suffered a left knee injury during the Week 4 win over the Detroit Lions and did not return. The news is rather unfortunate, primarily since the 24-year-old was having a day before going down, racking up 23 carries for 106 yards and two scores. However, luckily, the initial thought is that he suffered a hyperextension and didn't sustain any significant damage. Still, until he receives a definite diagnosis, fantasy managers will undoubtedly continue to hope for the best. Nonetheless, if Montgomery misses time moving forward, which is very possible, Damien Williams, who had eight carries for 55 yards and a touchdown in Week 4, will see his fantasy stock rise tremendously.
Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of the Week 4 contest against the Lions. He had 23 carries for 106 yards and two touchdowns in the game. If Montgomery misses time, Damien Williams would be a priority waiver wire addition in leagues where he's available. Williams has run the ball well since Montgomery exited.
Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery (knee) has gone to the locker room in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions. Montgomery went down in a lot of pain in the fourth quarter, so it wouldn't be a shock to see Montgomery not return to this one. He had 23 carries for 106 yards and two touchdowns in the game. If Montgomery misses time, Damien Williams would be a priority waiver wire addition in leagues where he's available.
Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery will go up against a Lions defense that is allowing the 10th most fantasy points to opposing backs through three games. Montgomery has 252 all-purpose yards through the first three week with one touchdown but the Bears offense is a dumpster fire right now. Despite its immense struggles, Montgomery represents Chicago's best chance to work out of its funk. The Lions have already allowed six touchdowns to opposing running backs this season and Montgomery has a strong chance at finding the end zone in Week 4.
Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery carried the ball 10 times for 34 yards and added two receptions for 21 yards in the Bears embarrassing 26-6 loss to the Browns. On a day when the Bears, as a team, finished with only 47 yards of offense, the output by Montgomery can almost be commended. He showed his usual elusiveness in open space but those chances were few and far between. Montgomery and the Bears offense will have a chance to bounce back next week against the Lions.
Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery will have a tough Week 3 test against a Browns run defense that is off to a strong start. Cleveland's defense has been vulnerable to the pass, but they have surrendered the seventh-fewest fantasy points to running backs through two games. Montgomery is off to a solid start, posting 197 all-purpose yards with one touchdown. The third-year running back will be integral to the Bears success this weekend with rookie quarterback Justin Fields under center, but he could struggle to post RB1 numbers in Week 3.
Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery carried the ball 20 times for 61 yards and added 18 receiving yards in the Bears 20-17 win over the Bengals in Week 2. Montgomery again played hard-nosed football and picked up several first downs after first contact. He didn't find the end zone but 23 touches (three receiving, 20 carries) is a step in the right direction to solidify his floor moving forward in fantasy.
Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery will take on a Bengals defense that allowed the eighth most fantasy points to opposing runners last season. Montgomery started off his 2021 campaign with a bang, busting a 41-yard run on the Bears first drive against the Rams. The third-year back went on to rack up 108 yards on 16 carries with a touchdown and showed an excellent blend of speed and toughness. The Bengals defense last season allowed 11 different running backs to post at least 80 rushing yards against them, providing a glimpse of a high floor fantasy wise for the Bears running back. Montgomery will be a rock-solid RB2 selection for Week 2.

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
