RB - NO
Week 2 Outlook
Per sources, former Packers and Jets RB/WR Ty Montgomery is signing a deal with the New Orleans Saints.
The 27-year old has played seven seasons in the NFL, four with the Packers, one with the Ravens, and one most recently with the Jets. In 2016. While with the Packers, Montgomery was utilized as a pass-catching back, even getting WR-eligibility that year as a result of his abundant work as a receiver. He’s got over 1,000 yards rushing and close to 1,000 yards receiving in his career, and can help the Saints in pass-protection and on third downs this season. Montgomery is a solid add for this team, but likely won’t have much fantasy value behind Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray.
Ty Montgomery rushed twice for five yards and caught his only target for five yards in the Jets' Thursday night loss to the Ravens in Week 15.
Montgomery remains nothing more than a rarely-used change-of-pace player for the Jets. Even with Bell out in Week 14, Bilal Powell carried most of the load, so Montgomery isn't even a handcuff and shouldn't be owned in essentially any league by now.
Jets running back Ty Montgomery is officially active for the team's matchup against the Baltimore Ravens despite being limited with foot and hip injuries this week.
With Bell active after missing Sunday's game with an illness, Montgomery will likely return to a reserve role in the New York offense. His 12 touches last week were easily his most of the season, and he is unlikely to see a similar workload as long as Bell is healthy.
Ty Montgomery rushed nine times for 31 yards and caught all three of his targets for 30 yards in the Jets' Week 14 win over the Dolphins.
Montgomery only has fantasy appeal if Le'Veon Bell misses more time, and only thanks to his receiving chops. In any event, Montgomery is unlikely to find his way into starting lineups for matchups against the Ravens next week and the Steelers in Week 16.
Ty Montgomery rushed twice for one yard and was targeted once in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Patriots.
Montgomery is nothing more than a clear handcuff to Le'Veon Bell. Do with that as you will -- it depends on league size and depth whether handcuffing make sense.
