The Chicago Bears might lean heavily on the rookie running back.
Recently, we discussed how the Chicago Bears are thin when it comes to depth at three key positions. One of them is running back, where the Bears currently have second-year starter David Montgomery, paired with Tarik Cohen as the only returning players from last season with legitimate experience at the position. Yes, there is fan-favorite Ryan Nall, but if the Bears were high on him, he likely would have gotten more than two touches last season.
Talent-wise, the team is more than set at the position. Montgomery is looking to have a breakout year, hopefully with an improved offensive line. Cohen, who had a down year in 2019, is hoping to get back to his 2018 form when he was one of the most exciting and dangerous weapons in the NFL.
