  • Montgomery rushed 20 times for 72 yards and brought in two of three targets for seven yards in the Bears' 31-17 Week 18 loss to the Vikings. He ended the season with 225 carries for 849 yards and seven touchdowns in addition to 42 receptions for 301 yards. After posting a career high 4.3 yards per carry in 2020, Montgomery fell below four yards per carry as he did in his rookie season back in 2019. Regardless, he averaged 20 touches per game, and he has an excellent chance at retaining lead-back duties in 2022, though Khalil Herbert may be able to eat into a portion of his work. Based on his career production, he'll likely be projected as a top-18 running back in 2022 fantasy drafts. Montgomery will enter the last year of his rookie deal before becoming an unrestricted free agent in 2023.

  • Montgomery rushed 22 times for 64 yards and two touchdowns while adding two receptions for 17 yards in the Bears' 29-3 win over the Giants on Sunday. In a game the Bears controlled throughout, Montgomery was used to control the clock on the ground, though he was unable to break a run longer than 10 yards on the day. However, he took advantage of his opportunities at the goal line by scoring a pair of touchdowns. After posting at least 80 combined yards in each of his last five games, he remain a high-floor fantasy option in the season finale at Minnesota in Week 18.

  • Montgomery rushed 21 times for 45 yards and a touchdown and caught seven passes for 61 yards in the Bears' 25-24 win over the Seahawks on Sunday. With Seattle loading up to stop the run, Montgomery found very little room to operate, but by leading the team in rushing attempts and targets, his volume allowed him to surpass 100 yards from scrimmage. He could've had a bigger day, but he was unable to turn a rushing attempt and target from near the goal line during one drive into an additional score. He'll have an excellent matchup against the Giants next week in which he should be a top-15 option at running back.

  • Montgomery rushed 18 times for 60 yards and caught five passes for 23 yards in the Bears' 17-9 loss to the Vikings on Monday. Montgomery had a number of successful runs up the middle early in the game, but with the Bears going with a run-heavy approach, the Vikings began to place the focus of the defense on him, resulting in a number of runs for no gain or lost yardage. With Chicago largely unable to move the ball consistently, he had no chances to carry the ball near the end zone. Although he'll have a couple tough upcoming matchups against the Seahawks and Giants, Montgomery's volume as both a runner and receiver ensures he'll be a strong option in the fantasy playoffs.

  • Montgomery (illness) was a full participant in Friday's practice. Montgomery was one of eight Bears who didn't take part in Thursday's walk-through session on account of an illness. All but one of those players returned to the field Friday as full participants, temporarily alleviating some concern about a team-wide COVID-19 breakout. With that in mind, Montgomery looks poised to handle his usual three-down role Monday against the Vikings.
