Lions | Montell Owens facing roster battle

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 20:14:30 -0700

Detroit Lions FB Montell Owens has company, as the team will employ a more traditional fullback in the offense. They signed FB Jed Collins for the role. Owens is more of a hybrid player who excels on special teams. He likely needs to set himself apart in that role or risk not making the final roster, as he doesn't fit the traditional blocking fullback role like Collins.

Jaguars | Montell Owens inactive

Sun, 30 Dec 2012 08:51:24 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Montell Owens (knee) is among the team's inactives for their Week 17 contest versus the Tennessee Titans because he experienced discomfort in his knee during pregame warm-ups.

Fantasy Tip: For those in leagues that include Week 17 play, this is a bit of a blow considering how well Owens has played and his attractive match-up. RBs Richard Murphy, Keith Toston and Jonathan Grimes figure to split touches, and all are pretty risky options because their workloads will be unpredictable.

Jaguars | Montell Owens cramps up

Sun, 09 Dec 2012 19:39:39 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Montell Owens (cramps) left the Week 14 game against the New York Jets due to cramping. Owens was able to finish the game, and he managed 14 carries for a career-high 91 yards and a touchdown. Owens also had an 11-yard reception.

Fantasy Tip: Owens is certainly worth a look as a flex fantasy play heading into Week 15 if he is available off the waiver wire, although keep in mind that he and the Jaguars will face a strong rushing defense in Week 15 when they meet the Miami Dolphins.

Jaguars | Montell Owens expected to start

Wed, 05 Dec 2012 17:25:08 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Montell Owens is expected to start at running back in Week 14 against the New York Jets with RB Maurice Jones-Drew (foot) very questionable to play. RB Rashad Jennings (concussion) is also banged up. "I think when he has had his opportunities, which have been very few, I've been pretty pleased with the way he has run the ball. He's just a really good football player," head coach Mike Mularkey said.

Fantasy Tip: Owens shouldn't be considered for a starting spot, especially in the fantasy playoffs - unless you're in an extremely cavernous league or are dealing with multiple injuries at RB.
