    Huddle Up: Montgomery currently projects behind Tarik Cohen and free-agent addition Mike Davis (Seahawks) on the Bears' depth chart. Montgomery could quickly rise to the top as the replacement for Jordan Howard (Eagles) on the ground. The rookie rushed for 1,216 yards and 13 touchdowns in his final year at Iowa State last season. He's a strong selection as a RB2.

    Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery has impressed in minicamp with his pass-catching skills, 'He's making plays,' Bears head coach Matt Nagy said. 'We always knew he had great hands. You don't know how great of a route runner a college back is, but he's a really good route runner.'

    Huddle Up: Montgomery already is the second-most coveted rookie RB in fantasy, ranking only behind the Raiders' Josh Jacobs, and he's a solid RB3 pick in all non-dynasty drafts.

    Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery should have the chance to earn a solid role in the offense during his rookie season, in the opinion of The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs.

    Huddle Up: Tarik Cohen is going to have a role in the passing game, but Montgomery has the size and the hands to be an every-down back. He's a first-round candidate in rookie drafts and has RB2 upside as a rookie.

    Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery feels he can be an impact player catching balls out of the backfield. 'I'm very confident in myself as far as catching the ball,' Montgomery said. 'I think I catch the ball well. I played quarterback in high school, so I was catching the ball every play we ran out of the gun, so I got used to it over time.'

    Huddle Up: Montgomery could see plenty of touches in the Chicago backfield in 2019, perhaps splitting time with Tarik Cohen. If he works on his hand and is as good as he is confident, he could be quite a solid fantasy option in PPR formats.

    Iowa State RB David Montgomery was selected by the Chicago Bears with the 73rd overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

    Huddle Up: With Jordan Howard out of the picture, Montgomery has a great chance to become Chicago's between-the-tackles back. He is worth considering in the first-round of rookie drafts, and flex production isn't out of the question.
