  • David Montgomery Extension Not Expected Anytime Soon

    Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery will enter the 2022 regular season without a contract extension, according to Dan Graziano of ESPN. The Bears are being patient and will wait to see how he looks this season before offering a potential contract. The Iowa State product has looked decent through three years in the NFL. After a strong 2020 campaign, he took a step back in 2021, totaling 849 rushing yards, 301 receiving yards, and seven touchdowns through 13 total games. He should be viewed as a mid-range RB2 heading into 2022.

  • David Montgomery Considered Day-To-Day

    Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery (undisclosed) is considered day-to-day with an undisclosed injury. The 25-year-old is not expected to play in Saturday's preseason opener, however, Montgomery will be back "pretty fast," according to head coach Matt Eberflus. Upon his return to action, Montgomery will lead the Chicago backfield with sophomore Khalil Herbert as the No.2 option in what could be an improved offense from an abysmal 2021 season. Still, the fourth-year back figures to be more of a low-end RB2 with a limited ceiling despite having a significant potential workload.

  • David Montgomery Could Play Special Teams In 2022

    Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery has embraced the potential of playing on special teams this year. Montgomery remains the team's lead back, but he's also in the final year of his contract, and special teams work is new to him. "Wherever they need me, I'm going to be ready to be there," Montgomery said. "I've never played special teams before. But I'm always down and excited to learn so I can be better." It remains to be seen if he'll actually see work as a returner on special teams during the regular season, but if he does, it might be bad news for his fantasy upside as a running back. We're skeptical that the 25-year-old will be involved heavily on special teams, but he's still somewhat of a shaky RB2 after Khalil Herbert looked really good filling in for him when he was injured in 2021.

  • Bears Transitioning Into Run-Heavy, Outside Zone Offense

    The Chicago Bears are transitioning into a run-heavy, outside zone offense, and fullback Khari Blasingame is expected to be clearing holes and creating running lanes for running backs David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert. "He's going to be able to do some things for us outside of the traditional fullback role of just being an elite blocker," running backs coach David Walker said of Blasingame. "He's got some skills. He made a great catch out of the scramble drill today and went downfield." It's good news for Montgomery's fantasy outlook heading into the 2022, but Herbert could steal valuable backfield work from him after a strong rookie season. But if the Bears continue to commit to the run Montgomery should also be used heavily.
