Montgomery rushed 12 times for 31 yards in the Bears' 21-9 loss to the Saints in the wild-card round. Montgomery didn't see many touches, as the Bears were dominated in time of possession, and with the team trailing for most of the game, he never had much of a chance to have a big performance. On the season, he played in 15 games and rushed for 1,070 yards and eight touchdowns while adding 54 receptions for 438 yards and two touchdowns. He was one of the top fantasy running backs over the last six weeks of the season, so he'll likely be targeted in the first 30 picks in fantasy drafts in August. Montgomery is under contract with the Bears through 2022.
Montgomery rushed 22 times for 69 yards and a touchdown while catching nine passes for 63 yards in the Bears' 35-16 loss to the Packers on Sunday. Although Montgomery was held in check on the ground, he scored Chicago's only touchdown while placing second on the squad with nine targets, resulting in him posting at least 100 yards and a touchdown in six straight games. On the season, he played in 15 games while rushing for 1,070 yards and eight touchdowns while adding 54 receptions for 438 yards and two touchdowns. After the Bears finish their playoff run, he'll be under contract through 2022.
Montgomery rushed 23 times for 95 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 26 yards in the Bears' 41-17 victory over the Jaguars on Sunday. While the game was competitive, the Bears had the ball deep in the red zone on three occasions. On two of those, Montgomery wasn't utilized, denying him opportunities for a score. Regardless, he's now accounted for at least 100 scrimmage yards and a touchdown in each of his last five games, and he'll have a favorable Week 17 matchup at home against the Packers.
Montgomery rushed 32 times for 146 yards and two touchdowns while adding a 16-yard reception in Chicago's 33-27 victory over the Vikings on Sunday. With the Bears leading for the majority of this contest, Montgomery surpassed 21 carries for the first time all season, and although he didn't have a run of 20 yards, he consistently picked up chunks of real estate on his way to a season-high yardage total. He's averaging over 100 rushing yards and 1.5 touchdowns over his last four games, and he'll have a fantastic Week 16 matchup against a Jaguars defense that's ranked in the bottom three of the league against the run.
Montgomery rushed 11 times for 113 yards and a touchdown while adding three receptions for 42 yards in the Bears' 36-7 victory over the Texans on Sunday.

He's now posted at least 111 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown in each of his last three games, and he'll remain a solid starting option during the remainder of the fantasy playoffs.
