Ty Montgomery quiet in loss to Patriots

Ty Montgomery rushed twice for one yard and was targeted once in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

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.

Ty Montgomery used sparingly in Week 2 loss

Ty Montgomery rushed three times for 25 yards and caught all three of his targets for 15 yards in the Jets' Week 2 loss to the Browns.

Fantasy Impact

Montgomery is a true handcuff to Le'Veon Bell, but little more at this point. In standard sized leagues, it's hard to make a case for Montgomery as a bench stash, but in deeper leagues, he's one of the highest confidence handcuff players.

Ty Montgomery quiet in season opener

Ty Montgomery rushed twice for four yards in the Jets' season opener, a dramatic loss to the Bills.

Fantasy Impact

While Montgomery is the clear RB2 for the Jets, it's now clear he's nothing more than a handcuff to Le'Veon Bell, and the standalone value isn't there. Montgomery can safely be dropped if owned.

Ty Montgomery scores and fumbles in preseason loss

Ty Montgomery rushed eight times for 21 yards and caught all four of his targets for 24 yards in the Jets' preseason loss to the Saints. Montgomery scored once but also fumbled once.

Fantasy Impact

Montgomery got his playing time with the first-team offense, and is the clear backup to Le'Veon Bell. Given head coach Adam Gase's remarks about the Bell signing this offseason, Montgomery could have standalone value. At worst, he's one of the clearest handcuffs in the league this season, and offers nice receiving upside.

Ty Montgomery scores in preseason win

Ty Montgomery carried seven times for 36 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' preseason win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Montgomery was active early in this contest, likely reaffirming that he is the clear #2 back behind Le'Veon Bell. What's interesting is that he was not used at all in the passing game, which is his best strength. Montgomery is a nice upside player late in drafts, as he could have a standalone role, and he should be in line for heave work if Bell misses time for any reason.
