Saints RBs Latavius Murray, Dwayne Washington and Mike Burton have been placed on the COVID list as close contacts of RB Alvin Kamara, Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reports. Those 3 guys are out for Sunday's game against the Panthers but will at least be eligible for the 1st round of the playoffs if they continue to test negative. New Orleans will use Ty Montgomery at RB and also promote Tony Jones from the practice squad, according to Glazer. The Saints will likely be forced to go pass-heavy in this one, but Montgomery has some RB3 and DFS appeal.
The Saints have signed RB Ty Montgomery, according to insider Nick Underhill. The 27-year-old was a non-factor with the Jets last season but compiled 107 catches over his first 4 NFL seasons (3.5 with the Packers and the rest with the Ravens). We're interested to see what HC Sean Payton does with Montgomery's unique skill set, but he's unlikely to be a fantasy asset without an injury to Alvin Kamara.
Jets RB Ty Montgomery (foot) is active for tonight's game against the Ravens. He should be the #2 RB with Bilal Powell inactive, but that's not likely to mean much playing time.
Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (illness) isn't listed on the final Week 15 injury report. RB Bilal Powell (ankle) has been ruled out, while RB Ty Montgomery (foot, hip) is questionable. Bell should dominate backfield touches against the Ravens on Thursday night.
The Jets have downgraded RB Le'Veon Bell (illness) to out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. That leaves the backfield to RBs Bilal Powell and Ty Montgomery. Over the past 5 weeks, Powell has totaled 25 carries and 6 targets to Montgomery's 8 carries and 4 targets. We'd bet on Powell leading the way tomorrow, but there's no way to know for sure what the split will look like. There's at least upside vs. Miami's 28th-ranked RB defense.
Jets RB Le’Veon Bell (illness) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Dolphins after missing practice on Thursday and Friday. Players almost always play when on the injury report with illnesses — but HC Adam Gase said Friday that he’s “unsure” if Bell will be available vs. Miami. We’ll look for an update on his status on Sunday morning. Bell’s absence would leave the Jets with a committee backfield of Bilal Powell and Ty Montgomery.
Jets HC Adam Gase said Friday morning that he's "unsure" if RB Le'Veon Bell will play against the Dolphins this weekend. Bell missed Thursday's practice with an illness and will be sidelined again on Friday. Players almost always play through illnesses -- but it's possible that Bell is dealing with something more serious. We'll get another update on his status this afternoon. His absence would leave the Jets with RBs Bilal Powell and Ty Montgomery.
Jets HC Adam Gase said RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) won't practice on Wednesday and will be monitored beyond that. His knee injury reportedly isn't serious, but he shouldn't be considered a lock to play against the Giants this weekend. Bell's absence would leave the Jets' backfield to some type of committee with Ty Montgomery, Bilal Powell and possibly Josh Adams.
Jets RB Le'Veon Bell suffered a knee injury in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, HC Adam Gase said. Bell is undergoing an MRI to determine the severity. We'll update his status as soon as we know more. Bell's absence would leave Ty Montgomery as the likely leader of backfield committee alongside Bilal Powell.
Jets RB Le'Veon Bell is missing practice Thursday and getting an MRI after experiencing shoulder soreness. HC Adam Gase said Thursday morning that he still hopes Bell can play Monday night, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. If he can't, of course, Ty Montgomery would step in. We'll see about the MRI results.
The New York Post's Brian Costello believes Jets RB Ty Montgomery "could be a significant piece" of the offense this season. The former Packer and Raven has been "one of the most impressive players" in camp, Costello adds. Although he's flamed out in lead roles, Montgomery is a plus pass-catcher and is still just 26. We're not expecting him to see enough action to be a real fantasy option. But he could put a dent in RB Le'Veon Bell's volume.
The Jets have reached a 1-year deal with RB Ty Montgomery, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The move came a day before the free agent was set to visit the Dolphins, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That seems a curious decisions by Montgomery: taking a 1-year deal with the team that just signed Le'Veon Bell -- almost certainly to dominate backfield touches -- rather than at least talk to a Miami squad with no proven workhorse. Montgomery will compete with Elijah McGuire to back up Bell, barring further personnel moves. The financial details here might help indicate how big a role the Jets expect for Montgomery.
Ravens RB Ty Montgomery is a surprise inactive for today's game against the Bucs. That leaves the backfield to Gus Edwards, Kenneth Dixon and Buck Allen. Dixon's volume has been on the rise, and he's in play as a RB3 or flex this weekend.
Ravens RB Ty Montgomery is a healthy scratch after arriving via trade earlier this week. That keeps RB Buck Allen in the change-of-pace, pass-catching role.
The Packers have traded RB Ty Montgomery to the Ravens for a 2020 7th-round pick -- or, basically, a bag of balls. Montgomery, of course, just cost Green Bay a chance to come back and beat the Rams by fumbling on a kickoff return. He hasn't been a big part of the offense this year, averaging just 3.7 carries and 3.3 targets per game. His departure certainly doesn't hurt RB Aaron Jones' rest-of-season outlook, though. In Baltimore, Montgomery figures to step into a similar change-of-pace, pass-catching role. He'll steal a handful of looks from Alex Collins and Buck Allen but is unlikely to emerge as a fantasy asset.
The Packers rotated 3 RBs in Week 3, and it sounds like that'll remain the game plan going forward. "I really like the rotation of having all three guys because they’re distinctly different, but all three can play all three downs, and that says a lot," HC Mike McCarthy said. "We’ve never had this situation where you have three guys that can play three downs like that, so this will really help us moving forward." Jamaal Williams led the way with a 43% snap rate in last week's loss to the Redskins. Ty Montgomery was next at 29%, and Aaron Jones played 25% of the snaps. The touches went Montgomery 10, Williams 7 and Jones 7. There will be more work to go around when the Packers aren't playing from behind like they were in Week 3. But this committee might make all 3 guys tough to trust in fantasy lineups.
