Ty Montgomery has an uneventful first pre season game

Ty Montgomery had three rushes and caught 1-of-1 passes thrown his way on Thursday night vs the Eagles. He rushed for zero yards, with eight receiving yards, and had a fumble.

Fantasy Impact

Montgomery had a poor outing on Thursday night. He wasn't able to get anything going on the ground with two negative rushes, and on the only positive rush of the game he fumbled the football away. Looked at to be the bell cow of an elite offense, Montgomery has opened the door for rookie Jamaal Williams.

Ty Montgomery a 'full threat?'

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero is reporting Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy deemed Ty Montgomery "the full threat" running back. "He's the full threat," McCarthy said of Montgomery Monday. "He can obviously run it, he can catch it, he can displace and run routes and catch it. He just needs the reps in pass protection, because he's actually really high in the ability for pass protection. That guy a stud now. He's got it in his body. He's a very good young player."

Fantasy Impact

Montgomery is entering the 2017 season as a highly-touted commodity coming out of the Packers' backfield -- he's been praised by team brass all offseason. Although he is currently Green Bay's RB1, the team addressed the running back position in the recent NFL Draft selecting Jamaal Williams in the fourth, Aaron Jones in the fifth and Devante Mays in the seventh. It seems like the pressure is on Montgomery. However, I believe the 24-year-old starter will be given every opportunity to flourish after his first full offseason training as an RB in the pros. For the RB2 spot, though, I'd expect a heavy training camp/ preseason position battle for that role between the three rookies with Williams the current favorite to emerge as Montgomery's primary backup.

Ty Montgomery bulks up

Ty Montgomery has now bulked up to 220 pounds. Looking to continue building on his transition to running back, Montgomery is adding size to his frame to handle the load while maintaining athleticism.

Fantasy Impact

With the additional weight and a very productive 5.9 yards per carry last season, Montgomery will be looking to top the 77 carries he received in 2016. Currently weighing in as the heaviest running back on the Packers roster, his stock is trending up with tons of upside carrying the ball for one of the leagues best offenses. Look for Montgomery to receive more volume and goal line touches for the Packers in 2017.

Ty Montgomery embracing full time switch to RB

For Ty Montgomery, embracing a full-time switch to running back wasn't about carving out a longer career -- just a more productive one.

Fantasy Impact

"I was running a lot on instincts. I knew where I was supposed to be going, but it was instinct," Montgomery told the team's official website. "Now, I know techniques. I know rotations and linebacker positions, and fronts and understanding gap rules and what the defense is supposed to be doing. Now when I get out there, I know my reads and my aiming points and I can just add that to my instincts. I'm excited to do that."

Ty Montgomery ready to take the next step

Ty Montgomery has returned to OTAs four pounds heavier (listed as 220 pounds).

Fantasy Impact

Ty Montgomery looks jacked up, and ready to take the mantle as the lead back in Green Bay. Ty was already a thick, muscular player but now gaining the extra muscle mass could help in making him more of a three-down back in Green Bay. Combining with a proper offseason training with the running backs, rather than the wide receivers, expect Ty to take a big step this year in the Packers backfield.
