2019 Fantasy Outlook
A 2019 third-round pick out of Iowa State, Montgomery steps into an immediate competition with free-agent signee Mike Davis for a significant role in the Chicago backfield alongside Tarik Cohen. Montgomery's most impressive traits as a runner are his vision, patience and power, as he calmly lets holes develop before throttling up to get to the second level. He ran just a 4.63 in the 40-yard dash, but he has enough wiggle to make the first tackler miss, and he can generate yards after contact with a stout frame, bringing a low center of gravity and powerful leg drive. He's also competent as a receiver and already adept as a pass protector, giving him the ability to stay on the field for three downs, even if his targets will be limited by Cohen's presence. There are concerns about Montgomery's college workload and the punishment his running style creates, but he's essentially a more versatile version of Jordan Howard, so he likely will have an opportunity to thrive in the same role focused on early downs and short-yardage carries.

Disappointing performance
RBChicago Bears
October 20, 2019
Montgomery carried twice for six yards and caught two passes for 13 yards in the Bears' 36-25 loss to the Saints on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Montgomery saw little work, even when this game was close throughout the first half. When he was given his first carry in the third quarter, he fumbled the football away, which put the Bears in a hole out of which they couldn't climb. After having reached at least 67 combined yards in three straight games, he's failed to reach 40 yards in either of his last two contests, and unless the Bears figure out their offensive woes, Montgomery will have a low weekly scoring floor.
