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 makes no impact against Saints

Operating as merely a change of pace back, Ty Montgomery rushed for six yards on four attempts. Montgomery also added one reception for nine yards.

Fantasy Impact

Rookie Aaron Jones has clearly stolen the lead back role from Ty Montgomery. Montgomery was on the field for just 13 percent of the Packers' offensive plays. In comparison, Jones was on the field for 80 percent. Montgomery started the season as a workhorse running back but his role is drastically diminishing. With such a limited role in the offense, Montgomery should be out of starting lineups going forward.
