  • David Montgomery's Injury Not Serious

    Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell said that running back David Montgomery (undisclosed) won't take part in organized team activities on Thursday due to an undisclosed injury that he suffered at practice last week, but his injury isn't considered serious. After four seasons with the Chicago Bears, where he put up 800-plus rushing yards in every season, Montgomery comes to Detroit as the expected primary option on early downs in 2023. The 25-year-old had a total of 155 receptions in his tenure in Chicago as well, but the presence of first-round rookie Jahmyr Gibbs will certainly lower Montgomery's overall fantasy ceiling, especially in PPR leagues. Treat Montgomery as a low-end RB2/high-end RB3 in his first year with the Lions.

  • David Montgomery Injured At OTAs Thursday

    Detroit Lions running back David Montgomery left with an undisclosed injury during organized team activities on Thursday. Montgomery was able to walk off the field under his own power to the locker room. It's an ominous start to spring practices for the former Bears running back, who totaled 915 carries for 3,609 yards and 26 touchdowns while adding 155 receptions for 1,240 yards and four receiving TDs in his four years in the Windy City. The 25-year-old is expected to be Detroit's preferred early-down back in 2023, but rookie first-rounder Jahmyr Gibbs is likely to take away valuable pass-catching opportunities out of the backfield. Injury aside, Montgomery is on the RB2/3 borderline in fantasy in his first year with the Lions.
