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.

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.

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.
