Week 15: at Baltimore Ravens
FBG says: Tough matchup. Le'Veon Bell will return to the lineup Thursday after an illness cost him Week 14. Still, he won't be coming back to much fanfare. The Jets ran fine in last week's win over the Dolphins, with Bilal Powell churning out 74 tough yards before leaving with an injury and will miss this week. But their $35-million man has been a disappointment this year, as he has just 589 yards and 2 rushing touchdowns through 12 games. Bell has produced a paltry 3.2 yards per carry, and he's only topped 3.5 in 4 of those matchups. Even the run-soft Dolphins (66 yards), Bengals (32), and Jaguars (23) have been able to keep him from having any real impact on the game. Working with less burst than usual, and behind one of the league's shakiest front lines, Bell simply doesn't project to much of note for fantasy purposes. He's still a flex play due to his volume and receiving prowess, but doesn't look likely to generate much on the ground against the Ravens' reborn defense. With their ball-dominant offense and tendency to lead games, the Ravens don't generally face much rushing volume. That's kept their opponents' raw numbers under control, though there are indeed holes here to exploit. They're allowing just the league's sixth-most yards per game, but also the 10th-most per rush. Over the past 2 weeks, they've been shredded by Raheem Mostert (19 for 146 and a touchdown) and Devin Singletary (17 for 89) while being kept in neutral game flow. The Ravens boast a pair of dominators up front in Michael Pierce and Brandon Williams, who consistently control the trenches. But the rest of this unit has spent the year in full transition, replacing institutions like C.J. Mosley, Terrell Suggs, and Eric Weddle. Josh Bynes has been a true run-stopping find at inside linebacker, but there still enough lapses on the second level for dedicated run games to find success. The question for Week 15 is whether the flailing Jets can keep the game interesting enough to take advantage.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 14 vs MIA (9 / 31 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)
Montgomery saw nine carries, by far the most in his Jets career, resulting in his highest amount of rushing, receiving and combined yards as well. He was tied with Jamison Crowder for the second most receiving yards on the team as well, and had a key reception which he took upfield for a first down to set up the Jets' winning field goal.
2019 Week 13 vs CIN (1 / 7 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)
Montgomery continues to be more of a kick return specialist than anything else, and he was on the field three times as much on special teams than he was during offensive plays.
2019 Week 12 vs OAK (5 / 2 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 21 / 0 rec)
Montgomery got significant carries in the third quarter, but his biggest play came at 8:44 in the fourth quarter when the Jets faced a 3rd and 16. On the play, quarterback Sam Darnold threw a short dump pass to Montgomery who found nothing but wide open space to run. The Raiders seemed a bit slow in responding, and so Montgomery gained a first down and 21 yards.
2019 Week 11 vs WAS (2 / 11 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Wondering where Montgomery was for the last few games? Well we finally had proof of life, as he actually saw the field on something other than special teams. It was only two carries, though he was also the target on Darnold's interception. On top of that, Montgomery fumbled on a return, though Washington couldn't capitalize.
2019 Week 7 vs NE (2 / 9 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Out of 61 offensive snaps, Montgomery was on the field for just seven of them. He's not even an afterthought at this point, though he did run the ball well the two times he carried it.
2019 Week 6 vs DAL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 17 / 0 rec)
While Montgomery was only on the field for a grand total of six snaps, he was targeted on three of those and caught all three balls. He has still not broken out in any meaningful way and is not getting any carries either.
2019 Week 5 vs PHI (2 / 1 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Once again, Montgomery is less than an afterthought on offense, with just eight snaps and two carries. One he grabbed two yards while the other he was dropped for a loss.
2019 Week 3 vs NE (2 / 1 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Montgomery was on the field for just eight offensive snaps and did very little with those. He is clearly well behind Bell and not the factor people thought he might be in the passing game.
2019 Week 2 vs CLE (3 / 25 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 15 / 0 rec)
Aside from the possibility that Montgomery could be pressed into service as a backup quarterback if Luke Falk was hurt, Montgomery didn't see much action. He did have a pair of nice runs up the middle, one in the second quarter and one in the fourth, but he's not seeing much use right now and after two games it's clear hopes it would be otherwise are growing dim.
2019 Week 1 vs BUF (2 / 4 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
For all the talk of getting Ty Montgomery involved, that didn't happen. Not only was Montgomery barely utilized, he was only on the field for five snaps of offense. Both his runs came in the late third/early fourth quarter and he was not targeted at all in the passing game.
