Montgomery had 15 carries for 83 yards and added 10 catches for 65 yards after joining the Ravens in November. A trade deadline acquisition after wearing out his welcome in Green Bay with a costly mistake against the Rams, Montgomery settled into a modest role on his new squad. Montgomery effectively took over the pass-catching role previously held by Javorius Allen. However, Kenneth Dixon's return late in the season put a cap on Montgomery's run game usage as he totaled just seven rushes in his final four games. He'll be a free agent this spring and it's unclear if the Ravens have Mongomery in their future plans.
Montgomery is active for Saturday's game against the Chargers. Montgomery was inactive in Week 15, but has seemingly jumped Javorious Allen on the depth chart, as it's the latter who is inactive Saturday. Montgomery still figures to face an uphill battle for touches with both Gus Edwards and Kenneth Dixon doing well in recent weeks.
Montgomery (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 15 tilt against the Buccaneers. Montgomery appeared to carving out a meaningful role in the Ravens offense just two games ago, but he logged just three touches in Week 14, Kenneth Dixon's second contest back from injured reserve. Dixon's strong showing over the last pair of contests almost assuredly played a pivotal role in Montgomery's inactive status Sunday.
Montgomery took two carries for one yard and caught one of three targets for one yard in Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to the Chiefs. Montgomery played 19 of 71 snaps (27 percent) on offense, splitting work with Gus Edwards (31 snaps) and Kenneth Dixon (23). While he seems to be the preferred running back for obvious passing situations, Montgomery has averaged just 4.3 carries and three catches the past three weeks, and he still hasn't scored a touchdown with the Ravens. He's unlikely to see a major boost in workload Week 15 against Tampa Bay.
Montgomery ran for 51 yards on eight carries and added three catches for 13 yards on three targets against the Raiders. The Ravens got Montgomery more involved in the offense in his second game with the club Sunday, giving him 11 total touches. Montgomery was especially effective as a runner as he ripped off 6.4 yards per carry. Perhaps the most important takeaway is that Montgomery has seemingly taken Javorius Allen's role in the offense. It's worth noting, however, that Alex Collins (foot) was inactive for Sunday's game, so it will be interesting to see how Baltimore divvies snaps between Montgomery, Collins and the ascending Gus Edwards when all three are active.
