Saints RB Ty Montgomery has joined RB Mark Ingram on the COVID list. Both guys are unlikely to be cleared for Sunday's game vs. the Jets. New Orleans might not have any choice but to give RB Alvin Kamara a full workload in his first game back from his MCL injury.
NESN's Zack Cox calls Ty Montgomery a "strong candidate" for the Patriots' 3rd-down RB role. "He’s listed as a wide receiver but has seen just as many reps in the backfield this summer, if not more," Cox writes. He goes on to concede that Rhamondre Stevenson and rookie Pierre Strong are also candidates for the 3rd-down job. So the situation is as clear as mud at this point. We'll see if we learn anything in preseason games.
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.
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.
