Takes on secondary role in loss

Ebner rushed eight times for six yards in the Bears' 27-24 loss to the Falcons on Sunday.

Analysis: Although the Bears ran the ball 41 times, 35 of those carries went to David Montgomery and Justin Fields, leaving just a small number of touches for Ebner. It would appear that Ebner will see a limited number of touches while Khalil Herbert (hip) spends time on injured reserve. However, should there be any games that are decided early, Ebner could be a candidate to see significant work in those late-game situations.

Next man up sans Herbert

Ebner could step up as the No. 2 running back after the Bears placed Khalil Herbert (hip) on injured reserve, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Analysis: With David Montgomery sidelined earlier in the season, Ebner operated behind Hebert and rushed 13 times for 43 yards while securing two of three targets for eight yards across Weeks 3 and 4. The rookie sixth-round pick could see a similar backup role with Herbert now sidelined. Montgomery has recorded more than 15 rushing attempts just once this season, so there's certainly room for Ebner to carve out a solid backup role.

Negative yardage

Ebner rushed twice but lost five yards In the Bears' 49-29 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday.

Analysis: Ebener had his opportunities when the game was out of hand. When David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert are healthy, he sees very few snaps when the games are competitive. Unless his role changes, he doesn't see enough work to consistently help most fantasy teams.

Sees mop-up duty

Ebner rushed three times for eight yards in the Bears 33-14 win over the Patriots on Monday.

Analysis: Earning his opportunities in the latter moments of a blowout victory, this was the first time Ebner has touched the ball on offense since Week 4, and he has 59 total yards on the season. Unless David Montgomery or Khalil Herbert miss time, Ebner may not see enough work to be a reliable fantasy option.

Handles eight touches

Ebner rushed six times for 20 yards, and he caught two passes for eight yards in the Bears' 20-12 loss to the Giants on Sunday.

Analysis: Ebner was the clear backup to Khalil Herbert with David Montgomery (ankle) inactive. Aside from an 11-yard run, Ebner failed to generate chunks of yardage with his limited work. He should retain a similar role in the offense until Montgomery returns to action.

Steps into prominent role

Ebner rushed seven times for 23 yards in the Bears' 23-20 win over the Texans on Sunday.

Analysis: Ebner saw second-string running back duties when David Montgomery left the game with an ankle injury. Despite profiling as a strong receiving back, with Justin Fields throwing just 17 passes, Ebner had one target. If Montgomery misses time, Ebner will likely resume the the No. 2 role, giving him increased fantasy value.
