QB List
As I mentioned in the top 40 article, it's impossible to know how the Packers' backfield is going to shake out, but I'm of the mind that Montgomery is the odd man out. Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams showed too much promise for the Packers to roll with a so-so running back like Montgomery. That being said, it's entirely possible Montgomery gets some substantial work ahead of Williams while Jones is out (or later if an injury happens), and any starting running back in an Aaron Rodgers offense is valuable.In the past, Riddick has been a worthwhile flex option in PPR leagues but not worth much in standard leagues. Now, with the addition of Kerryon Johnson alongside LeGarrette Blount, Riddick's value may decrease even more. Still, he's a good pass-catching running back, so he might still get some work.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
The Packers' backfield has three good players and all three will get work. All three can catch the ball as well, but Montgomery started as a wide receiver, which should get him into decent targets and move him up in PPR rankings.Riddick will continue to be a PPR fantasy option, as he has a clear path to the majority of running back targets this season with Blount and Johnson both not proficient as receivers.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After being given the starting job to start 2017, Montgomery lost that role when he injured his ribs early in the season. From that point, both Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones shined in their roles, making it easier for the Packers to give Montgomery less work as the year went on. It seems he may play more of a hybrid RB/WR role this year, and that may be the ideal case for him. He may end up as a Theo Riddick-type player, though Aaron Rodgers has never checked down that much.Possibly one of the hardest players to predict in fantasy football, as Riddick has been one of the more consistent RB3/RB4's in the game the last few years, but the scenery has changed quite a bit in Detroit.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Momentarily shining as a PPR king, Montgomery has gotten lost in the debate between Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones conquering Green Bay's backfield. Even if he wasn't much of a runner, only five skill-position players posted more PPR points than the former wideout's 61.3 accrued through Week 3. Reality (and injuries) struck, turning a September star into waiver-wire fodder once the Packers lost Aaron Rodgers. The star QB's return could revive Montgomery, an enticing PPR upside play. The only RB with 50+ catches in each of the last three seasons, Riddick has maintained PPR value (RB 18, 25, and 26) despite compiling 776 combined rushing yards on 219 carries. Drafters are nevertheless nonplussed with a steady hand who has not scored more than six TDs in a single season or hit the 100-yard plateau since Oct. 20, 2016. Kerryon Johnson's three-down abilities caps Riddick's ceiling, but he's a useful low-floor PPR bench pick.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
The Packers have made it clear that Montgomery will have a sizeable role in the Packers' offense, but that it will primarily be on third down. While this certainly caps his upside, it gives enough safety that you can draft him as a reliable depth piece, and who knows if he might just end up winning the #1 job back one way or another.The Lions backfield is loaded with a bunch of decent backs who are all about on the same level. It will be tough for most of them to find touches except for Riddick who has his job locked in. Expect much of the same, making him a solid depth piece to fill in during bye weeks and injuries.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
In an effort to replace Ty Montgomery, the Packers spent three 2017 draft picks (4th, 5th, 7th) on running backs (J Williams, Aaron Jones and Devante Mays). Fantasy owners who rely on Montgomery in 2018 do so at their own peril. @GhostTesla  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Green Bay has a 3 headed horse in their backfield but Ty is their most versatile weapon at RB. The gap isn't wide, but he's your best bet for nowRiddick has more value in PPR formats but even there it's tough to project him too high given all the bodies in DET now

Should have some big weeks but buried on both the running back and receiver depth charts
