Chicago Bears Fantasy Football Projections
Here are our projections for the Chicago Bears running backs for the 2020 NFL season:
|Earlier this offseason, GM Ryan Pace talked about Montomgery's ability to "carry a heavier load" if the team runs more often in 2020. While the former Cyclone averaged only 3.7 YPC, he finished his rookie campaign with 242 carries and 25 receptions. Dealing with a groin injury, however, Montgomery is "expected to be out 2-4 weeks," which puts his availability for the season opener in question.|
|The Human Joystick set career lows in efficiency (3.3 YPC and 5.8 Y/R), but he set career highs in both targets (104) and receptions (79). Given his role in the passing game, Cohen is a much better option in (full) PPR formats as he's finished no worse than RB30 in PPR scoring -- 27th in 2019, 11th in 2018 and 30th in 2017 -- over his three NFL seasons.|
