Montgomery has plenty of ability and should at the very least compete for No. 1 running back touches in a great offense. The Packers did add competition, but Montgomery has the upper hand and unless news turns sour for his shot as the lead back, I'll be targeting him. **

Montgomery has a chance to win the starting job and he would be an interesting flex option with RB2 upside in PPR leagues. He will likely be in a RBBC with rookie RB Jamaal Williams and rookie RB Aaron Jones.

Montgomery will start the season as the feature back and Green bay and produce running back 2 numbers. A time share could with rookie back Jamal Williams could develop later in the season. Auction value $18

Despite them drafting two running backs, Montgomery likely isn't going anywhere. He offers something in the passing game both Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones don't, wide receiver skills. His 5.1 yards after contact was the best in the NFL last year, though the sample size was small.
