The Packers got Ty Montgomery back in Week 6, but it didn't help matters for fantasy owners. Now staring at a potentially bottom-10 scoring offense without Rodgers, Montgomery has lost a lot of his appeal. The Saints have held three of the last four teams they've played to 3.7 or less yards per carry and haven't allowed a team of running backs more than 97 yards since back in Week 1 when Dalvin Cook tagged them for 127 yards himself. In fact, if you were to go back to 2016, the Saints have surprisingly only allowed two running backs to run for more than 85 yards against them (Cook, Devonta Freeman 2x). The snaps in Week 6 favored Aaron Jones (43 to 20), but that was likely due to Montgomery being eased back in. Still, you cannot trust Montgomery as anything more than an RB3 right now.

Ty Montgomery manages just 31 yards in Week 6 loss

Ty Montgomery took 10 carries for 28 yards while catching just one of his three targets for another three yards in the Packers' 23-10 loss to the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Montgomery didn't miss as much time as many thought he would with that rib injury, but he didn't look too hot in this one anyway. He did get the start, but he was out-touched (14-11) and out-rushed (42-31) by rookie Aaron Jones in the contest. With Aaron Rodgers out for at least a couple of months, a heavier emphasis on the running game wouldn't be a surprise. Expect that shift in philosophy to benefit the rookie Jones more than Montgomery however.
