Player Outlook

Concerns about Ty Montgomery's effectiveness and availability will keep him from being a desirable Fantasy pick. He started off white hot in 2017, totaling 203 yards and three touchdowns in his first two games. Then he hurt his wrist and broke some ribs and was never the same, scoring just once more and averaging 40.5 yards per game in his final six before finishing the season on Injured Reserve. It seems clear Montgomery won't get a chance at landing a big workload, particularly with Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones still considered young and capable of working three downs. Packers coach Mike McCarthy hinted at Montgomery playing in a hybrid role, which suggests he'll catch a lot of passes. He's averaged 2.8 grabs per game over his career, so anything better than that would be a delight but expectations shouldn't be high. If someone in your league takes him before Round 10, they're probably doing you a favor.

Player News
  • Montgomery had four carries for 10 yards and two receptions for 13 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers. Montgomery did not make a major impact Thursday, but he did emerge from the contest healthy, which is more than can be said for fellow running back Jamaal Williams, who exited with an ankle injury. Williams does not believe his setback is serious, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. However, if that turns out not to be the case and he's unable to go in the regular-season opener, Montgomery would be the Packers' primary running back, as fellow ball carrier Aaron Jones (hamstring) will sit out the first two games of the season while serving a suspension.

  • Montgomery rushed three times for nine yards and failed to catch either of his two targets during Thursday's 31-17 win over the Titans in the preseason opener. Jamaal Williams got five first-half carries to Montgomery's three, perhaps foreshadowing the workload distribution between the two on the ground. Montgomery's a much better receiver than Williams despite his stat line in this one, and that ability should stand out more once quarterback Aaron Rodgers is under center for the games that count. Aaron Jones (hamstring) could further cut into Montgomery's workload on the ground, but Jones shouldn't be much of a threat to Montgomery's passing-down role and is suspended for two games to start the year.

  • Packers' Ty Montgomery: Getting no-huddle reps
    By RotoWire Staff

    Montgomery is getting most of the work with the starting offense in two-minute and no-huddle situations early in training camp, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. The converted wide receiver faces questions regarding his durability and running instincts/vision, but there's never been any doubt about his athleticism or his ability to contribute in the passing game. With Aaron Jones facing a two-game suspension and currently sidelined by a hamstring injury, Jamaal Williams unsurprisingly is taking most of the first-team reps in normal down-and-distance situations. Passing downs represent Montgomery's obvious path to a major role, but he could also be a significant part of the rushing attack, particularly while Jones is unavailable.

  • Packers' Ty Montgomery: Still has role in backfield
    By RotoWire Staff

    Montgomery remains a part of the Packers' backfield committee, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. "Ty can play from the backfield and still has the ability to flex him out and get the matchups we're looking for," head coach Mike McCarthy said Monday. McCarthy seems intent on utilizing all of the running backs at his disposal in 2018, likely spurred by the varying skill sets of the top three options on the depth chart in addition to the injuries suffered by the group last year. Montgomery kicked off the previous campaign as the starter, only to suffer broken ribs early and season-ending wrist surgery in December. His eight absences paved the way for rookies Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams to make an impact in their own ways. Jones' explosiveness yielded 5.5 yards per carry, but a knee injury contained him to five appearances in the second half of the season. Meanwhile, Williams was a workhorse during that stretch, averaging 20.4 touches and 93.3 yards from scrimmage per game and scoring five touchdowns over the final eight contests. Williams would appear to have a leg up for gaining the most touches based on last year's production and durability alone, but if McCarthy's comments have merit, Montgomery and Jones will also get in on the act this fall.

  • Packers' Ty Montgomery: Participant at OTAs
    By RotoWire Staff

    Montgomery (wrist) participated in the first session of OTAs on Tuesday, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports. Wood didn't mention any limitations for Montgomery, so it's fairly safe to assume that he has recovered from the wrist surgery he underwent in early December. Montgomery is expected to fill a hybrid role for the Packers this season, working as both a running back and a receiver. He began his career in Green Bay as a wide receiver but emerged as a running back in 2016, averaging 5.9 yards per tote for the Green and Gold. Montgomery struggled to replicate that output last season, however, averaging only 3.8 yards per carry. Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones figure to factor heavily into the backfield workload in 2018, while Montgomery should receive plenty of touches both in the backfield and out wide. However, it remains to be seen how his volume will be impacted by the change in role.
