    Bears' David Montgomery: Limited work in playoff loss

    David Montgomery rushed 12 times for 31 yards in the Chicago 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.

    Bears' David Montgomery: Find end zone again

    David Montgomery rushed 23 times for 95 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 26 yards in the Chicago 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.

    Bears' David Montgomery: Stays red hot

    David 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 Chicago 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.

    Bears' David Montgomery: Hits century mark

    David Montgomery rushed 11 times for 113 yards and a touchdown while adding three receptions for 42 yards in the Chicago Bears' 36-7 victory over the Texans on Sunday.Montgomery took the first offensive snap for the Bears 80 yards for a touchdown, and even though Chicago controlled this game throughout, he saw just 11 carries while the team chose to go with a pass-heavy approach, likely keeping him from having a massive performance. 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.

    Bears' David Montgomery: Scores twice in defeat

    David Montgomery rushed 17 times for 72 yards and two touchdowns while adding four receptions for 39 yards in Chicago's 34-30 loss to the Lions on Sunday.Although Montgomery saw his third-highest number of rushing attempts on the season, the team also gave 10 carries to Cordarrelle Patterson, which likely kept Montgomery from having a massive fantasy performance. Despite the backfield split, he'll continue to be Chicago's primary running back, and with upcoming matchups against the Texans, Vikings and Jaguars, Montgomery will be a solid top-24 running back in the fantasy playoffs.

    Bears' David Montgomery: Over 100 rushing yards

    David Montgomery rushed 11 times for 103 yards and caught five passes for 40 yards and a touchdown in the Chicago Bears' 41-25 loss to the Packers on Sunday.Montgomery burst up the middle of the Packers defense on Chicago's first drive of the game for a 57-yard run, but with the Bears falling hopelessly behind in the first half, the team was forced to mostly abandon their rushing attack. Fortunately, he was able to pile up significant yardage and a touchdown long after the game was out of hand to give him an excellent fantasy performance. Montgomery has now posted at least 100 combined yards in two of his last three games, and he should continue to function as a solid volume-based fantasy option going forward.

    Bears' David Montgomery: Ready to return to lineup

    David Montgomery said Wednesday that he's cleared the NFL's concussion protocol and will return to action Sunday against the Packers, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.The Chicago Bears didn't get much going on the ground while Montgomery was sidelined for their Week 10 loss to the Vikings, so the return of Chicago's clear-cut top back will be a welcome one. In nine games to date, the 2019 third-round pick has logged 131 carries for 472 yards and a touchdown to go with 30 catches for 212 yards and another score. While Montgomery hasn't been a source of big plays, his volume has been steady enough to ensure a decent fantasy floor on a weekly basis.

    Bears' David Montgomery: Back at practice Monday

    David Montgomery (concussion) is present for the portion of Monday's practice open to the media, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.Montgomery appears to have made real progress in his recovery during Chicago's bye, considering that he wasn't able to practice in any capacity before being ruled out against the Vikings in Week 10. The second-year pro's ability to practice in some capacity Monday isn't enough to consider him clear of the league's five-step protocol for head injuries yet, but it does represent a tangible step in the right direction. Montgomery will work to attain full medical clearance in time to suit up in Green Bay on Sunday.

    Bears' David Montgomery: Ruled out Monday

    David Montgomery (concussion) will not play in Monday's matchup against the Vikings.Montgomery was unable to practice all week, and it looks like the team will err on the side of caution with its second-year running back. The team has a Week 11 bye, so his next chance to return will come in Week 12 versus the Packers. In his absence, Chicago will go to Cordarrelle Patterson as their primary option in the backfield, while Ryan Nall and Artavis Pierce will also be available. It should be noted the team could also elevate Lamar Miller from the practice squad.
