What's Going to Happen in the Green Bay Backfield? - Footballguys

The Footballguys staff offers thoughts on the Green Bay running back situation

Green Bay has one of many backfields where the roles are not clearly defined. Since running back is one of the most important positions in fantasy football, it's wise to get as clear a picture as possible on every backfield.

In what could be the most wide-open backfield in the NFL, Jamaal Williams, Aaron Jones, and Ty Montgomery return in Green Bay. Will they have defined roles? Is this truly a committee, or will there be a noticeable pecking order? Does Jones' two-game suspension change anything once Week 3 rolls around?

Daniel Simpkins: This backfield may end up like last year where all three runners matter for fantasy at some point due to injury, suspension, and dissatisfaction with production. That's not what fantasy owners want to hear, but it's the probable outcome here. Of the three, I like taking the plunge on Ty Montgomery the best. He's often the cheapest in drafts and his receiving ability makes him intriguing if he does earn the starting nod like last year.
