The Right Combination: Bears quarterbacks vs. Eagles

The Right Combination: Bears quarterbacks vs. Eagles

Jay Cutler and Brian Hoyer both saw the field in Monday night's 29-14 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. 

Before exiting the game with a thumb injury, Cutler was 12/17 with 157 yards and an interception. His biggest completion was a 49-yard strike to Alshon Jeffery that set up the Bears only touchdown. 

In relief, Hoyer completed 75 percent of his passes and threw for 78 yards. With Cutler's status uncertain, the Michigan State graduate may see more time in the future. 

Fantasy Football: David Montgomery dubbed 'Sit of the Week' vs. Saints

Fantasy Football: David Montgomery dubbed 'Sit of the Week' vs. Saints

It's hard to trust the Bears offense in fantasy football. Outside of wide receiver Allen Robinson, there simply isn't a skill player worth starting right now. It won't get any easier in Week 7's matchup against the New Orleans Saints, either.

The matchup is so challenging that David Montgomery was dubbed NFL.com's 'Sit of the Week' at running back.

Montgomery will no doubt be a flex starter on plenty of fantasy teams this week, but I'd temper expectations against the Saints. Running backs have averaged a mere 78 rushing yards a game against them, not to mention an average of fewer than 19 fantasy points per game. In what could be a low-scoring affair, starting the rookie is a risk.

Montgomery has been a disappointment in fantasy circles through his first five games after ending the preseason with an average draft position (ADP) that suggested he could admirably serve as an RB2 as a rookie. He's been more of an RB3 at this point, rushing for just 225 yards and two touchdowns (3.3 yards per carry) on the season.

Most of Montgomery's struggles can be attributed to the terrible play of the offensive line, which may receive a slight bump in performance now that right guard Kyle Long has been placed on injured reserve. Rashaad Coward is expected to step into the starting lineup. Will he provide Montgomery with more room to run? We'll soon find out.

Until then, it's probably best to stash Montgomery with the rest of your fantasy football reserves.
