Montgomery is working through a leg injury and is expected to miss the second preseason game.
Montgomery's weekly outcomes last year spanned a wide range, which could be maddening for typical weekly lineup leagues, but should be just fine for best ball leagues. When the gameplan calls for a lot of Montgomery, he can be among the top two or three running backs in a PPR league, but if one of the rookies or fullback Aaron Ripkowski get more work, Montgomery can be automatically be covered by your running back depth.

Summary

Reports have Ty Montgomery putting on mass and muscle to help him survive carrying the full load in the backfield. Kicking off the season at running back, rather than being dragooned into it mid-season, should help his production as well. He already had a nice 5.9 yards per carry, but it was on only 77 carries last season so it remains to be seen if he can sustain that. Another question mark is how he will be used. Even though he was effective once he got into the backfield, the Packers didn't commit to him. Montgomery only topped 10 carries once last season, and Green Bay stayed throwing the ball. The Packers also brought in multiple rookie running backs. So we expect an improvement overall, but we have some concerns we hope will be addressed in camp. (August 16)

Packers | Ty Montgomery back at practice (Tue Aug 22, 05:56 PM) - Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery (leg) returned to practice Tuesday, Aug. 22, after being sidelined last week with a lower leg injury.

Our View: Montgomery's injury opened the door for rookie Jamaal Williams to get first-team reps. Williams will push Montgomery for snaps, but fantasy owners are trusting the converted WR as the lead back for now. Montgomery has a current ADP of RB17 (4.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Packers | Ty Montgomery misses practice (Tue Aug 15, 06:16 PM) - Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery (leg) missed practice Tuesday, Aug. 15, due to a soft tissue injury on his lower leg. Montgomery added that the ailment is nothing to worry about.

Our View: Sounds like some sort of bruise. If Montgomery isn't worried about it, then we aren't either. Montgomery is the top back for the Packers, but rookie Jamaal Williams should push for playing time in 2017.
