The Chicago Bears have been a different team as of late. Of course, it only matters in the fantasy football community rather than in the NFC. Following three-straight losses, we have to take a look at the Bears’ rushing rotation. David Montgomery is coming off a forgettable nine carries for 37 yards and zero touchdowns in the team’s Week 10 loss to the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bears RB David Montgomery

Montgomery has been in and out of the top-15 RB rankings throughout the season, but it finally seems like he’ll be in the top-10 conversation with backup Khalil Herbert sidelined for the foreseeable future.

Despite it being a clear Justin Fields show, Herbert outplayed Montgomery last week in the running game. Herbert carried the football 10 times for 57 yards, while QB Fields ran 13 times for a whopping 147 yards, leaving Montgomery as the third fiddle. With Herbert now on IR, Montgomery should return to a legitimate workload as Chicago’s No. 1 RB. Nevertheless, it was concerning that the team preferred to have Fields and Herbert pave the way for the last few games.

Start or sit in Week 11?
