Ty Montgomery: Totals 45 yards

Montgomery rushed six times for 14 yards while catching five of seven targets for 31 yards during Sunday's 31-6 loss to the Bills.

Analysis: Montgomery saw a hike in playing time thanks to the absences of both Alvin Kamara (knee) and Mark Ingram (knee). While Tony Jones led the way on early downs, Montgomery mixed in sporadically while siphoning off a large chunk of the work on passing downs. However, neither back was very effective within an offense led by the likes of Trevor Siemian. Even if Kamara and Ingram remain sidelined in Week 13 against Dallas, Montgomery would only be a fringe fantasy consideration in deep PPR formats.

Ty Montgomery Biography

Early Years and High School

Ty Montgomery is a Texas resident, but he was born in Mississippi on January 22, 1993. In an auspicious beginning to his career as an all-around athletic jack of all trades, Montgomery stood out as a star in four different high school sports. He ran 100m in 10.81 seconds and 200m in 22.2. He also did yeoman work on the football field for St. Mark's School in Dallas. In his time on the team Montgomery caught the ball 118 times and made 36 touchdowns.

College

Montgomery attended Stanford University on the California coast. He was acclaimed All-American as a return specialist in his junior year, and in 2013 he held the national record for the the highest average kickoff return. He had a total of 172 receptions over the course of his college career, earning a total of 2,125 yards and 15 touchdowns. Montgomery's college highlight reel can be seen here.

NFL Draft

Montgomery put out an impressive set of statistics, including a 40 time of 4.55 seconds and 40.5 inches vertical jump. The Green Bay Packers drafted him on the third round in 2015. He chose the #88 for his jersey and reported to camp for training as a wide receiver. Because of Montgomery's shorter stature and heavier weight, he was widely seen as an unusual pick for the third round. In fact, there have been only three other wide receivers with similar statistics in the history of the league. Montgomery's full draft profile can be seen here.

2015 NFL Season

Montgomery's rookie season with the Green Bay Packers was cut short after only a few games. A Week 6 game against the San Diego Charger ended with an injury to his ankle, sidelining him for the remainder of the season. He received the ball 15 times while he was playing, running it back an average of 9.1 yards each completion for a total of 136 yards.

2016 NFL Season

Montgomery's 2016 season began slowly, with only 17 snaps on offense coming to him and no catches at all. But a game against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6 turned it all around. In one game he received the ball 10 times and ran it almost a thousand yards. He matched that performance the next week in a game against the Bears, and the coach declared permanently placed in the running back position on December 13. In the ensuing game, a rematch against the Bears, Montgomery rewarded the coach's decision with a spectacular performance. Completing 16 receptions for 162 yards returned, Montgomery played his best professional game ever. He lead the Packers in rushing yards for the 2016 season. A video summary of his highlights for the year can be found here.
