Ty Montgomery News

Patriots Waive Ty Montgomery

Friday, December 8, 7:36 PM

The New England Patriots waived running back/wide receiver Ty Montgomery on Friday, a day after their Thursday night upset win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. In Week 14, Montgomery was only on the field for a total of six offensive snaps and caught one pass for 17 yards on two targets in the 21-18 win. The 30-year-old veteran had a mere three rushing attempts for nine yards and five catches on 12 targets for 40 yards in his 13 games with the Patriots this year. Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) is expected to miss some more time with a high-ankle sprain, leaving Ezekiel Elliott as their lead back moving forward. He'll be backed up by JaMycal Hasty and Kevin Harris with Montgomery now out of the picture in New England.

Elijah Mitchell News

Elijah Mitchell The Clear No. 2 RB In San Francisco

Thursday, June 6, 2:11 PM

According to The Athletic's David Lombardi, San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell is the team's clear No. 2 back behind All-Pro running back Christian McCaffrey. Mitchell is an all-around back, but his health is the key. If training camp this summer yields a productive backfield logjam, Lombardi points out that the 49ers have previously traded Matt Breida and Jeff Wilson Jr. when they have an excess of depth at the position. As of right now, the 26-year-old Mitchell is the best handcuff option for fantasy managers that take McCaffrey first overall in fantasy drafts this fall. Mitchell has produced 4.7 yards per carry in his three years in the NFL in the Bay Area, but he's also played in just 27 games in a three-year span. If CMC misses time with an injury in 2024, Mitchell will become a hot commodity.
