Montgomery rushed 20 times for 86 yards and failed to secure his only target in the Bears' 31-24 win over the Cowboys on Thursday. He also lost a fumble. Montgomery hit the 20-carry mark for only the third time this season, as he was leaned on more than usual in the latter stages of the fourth quarter with the Bears trying to ice the game. The rookie has been productive over his last pair of contests after a pair of lackluster outings in Weeks 11 and 12, as he's garnered 161 rushing yards on 36 carries against the Lions and Cowboys. He'll look to play a significant role again in a Week 15 divisional battle versus the Packers a week from Sunday.
Montgomery rushed 16 times for 75 yards and secured both of his targets for 12 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' 24-20 win over the Lions on Thursday. Montgomery turned in a workman-like effort on the ground, with his long run of the day going for a modest 14 yards. He also delivered through the air when it mattered most, notching what would turn out to be a game-winning three-yard touchdown reception with 2:17 remaining. Montgomery's rushing yardage tally served as his second highest of the season, and he'll look to build on those numbers versus the Cowboys in a Week 14 Thursday night home matchup.
Montgomery rushed 13 times for 22 yards and caught two passes for nine yards in the Bears' 19-14 victory over the Giants on Sunday. Even though he appeared fully recovered from the ankle injury that limited him last week, he continued to split work fairly equally with Tarik Cohen, and aside from a 13-yard run, Montgomery was unable to generate much yardage after contact. Despite his poor performance, this was the first time in five games that he failed to post at least 50 yards from scrimmage, and he should be considered a low-end starting option for fantasy managers.
Montgomery (ankle) carried the ball 14 times for 31 yards and caught one pass (three targets) for 19 yards in Sunday's 17-7 loss to the Rams. Montgomery was a game-time decision after rolling his ankle at practice earlier this week, but he was able to suit up and lead the team in carries. Unfortunately for his fantasy owners, the rookie was unable to do much against the Rams' stout interior defensive line, and he may have also been feeling the affects of the balky ankle. Despite the dud, Montgomery has been averaging 18 carries over his last four contests, and he will have a chance to feast against the Giants -- which allow 122.7 rushing yards per game -- on Sunday.
Montgomery (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams at L.A., Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Montgomery rolled his ankle at Wednesday's practice, inducing the Bears to hold him out Thursday before he returned Friday as a limited participant. Considered a game-time decision by coach Matt Nagy, Montgomery must have appeased the team's medical and training staffs enough to get the all-clear. It's unclear if Montgomery will handle his typical workload, but Tarik Cohen and Ryan Nall are on hand in the event he cannot.
