We will continue to target players on the Week 5 waiver wire with these types of utilization metrics in mind. This week's players dealing with various injuries include Jimmy Garoppolo, Dalvin Cook, Rob Gronkowski, Logan Thomas, David Montgomery, Will Fuller, D.J. Chark Jr., Joe Mixon, A.J. Brown, Josh Jacobs, Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton and Julio Jones.
Montgomery’s injury opens the door for Damien Williams to see an expanded role in the Bears rushing attack. He played 33% of the snaps before Monty went down and commanded 10 touches, including two receptions.
The ex-Chief has been impressive as a rusher in a limited capacity in the Windy City, earning 78.9 PFF rushing grade that ranks eighth among running backs with at least 15 carries.
