“I think Ty (Montgomery) definitely has that ability" to become a #1 RB in the NFL, Packers HC Mike McCarthy said this week, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky. Green Bay's actions this offseason have seemed to back up that feeling. We'll see what the team does in the draft, but Montgomery and Christine Michael stand today as the only 2 RBs on the roster. Barring a 1st-round pick at the position, the Packers appear ready to give Montgomery the 1st chance to lead the backfield. If his draft price stays around the bottom of RB2 territory -- or into RB3 range -- then he'll certainly be a fine chance to take in 2017. The versatility and proven pass-catching raise his PPR floor for fantasy football purposes.
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.
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.
