Packers | Ty Montgomery continuing his RB education

Sat, 27 May 2017 15:16:32 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery admits he was running on instincts for most of last year following his position change from wide receiver, but he feels much more comfortable after a full offseason at his new position. "I knew where I was supposed to be going, but it was instinct. Now, I know techniques. I know rotations and linebacker positions, and fronts and understanding gap rules and what the defense is supposed to be doing. Now when I get out there, I know my reads and my aiming points and I can just add that to my instincts. I'm excited to do that," Montgomery said.

Fantasy Tip: Even though the Packers added three running backs in the draft, Montgomery is expected to lead a committee at the very least. Running backs coach Ben Sirmans was quite pleased with how quickly he made the position switch last year and impressed by how many tackles he was able to break. Given his obvious value in the passing game, Montgomery figures to be the best fantasy play from Green Bay's backfield in 2017 and a capable RB3 in fantasy.

Packers | Ty Montgomery has a better understanding

Wed, 24 May 2017 08:42:32 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery has a better understanding of the mental aspect of being a running back and admitted that he ran a lot on instincts last season. "I was running a lot on instincts. I knew where I was supposed to be going, but it was instinct," Montgomery said. "Now, I know techniques. I know rotations and linebacker positions, and fronts and understanding gap rules and what the defense is supposed to be doing. Now when I get out there, I know my reads and my aiming points and I can just add that to my instincts. I'm excited to do that."

Fantasy Tip: Montgomery averaged 5.9 yards per carry over 77 attempts last season in what was a miraculous transformation on the fly. He'll be prepared this season, but so will opposing defenses. He has potential as a midrange RB3, and his obvious receiving skills are a plus for PPR leagues.
