Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery has been given a vote of confidence from head coach Mike McCarthy. McCarthy believes Montgomery has the ability to be a No. 1 running back after transitioning to the position from wide receiver last year. "He's a very talented young man, very bright, obviously understands the whole perimeter part of the offense now, so his utilization and the variation that he gives us as far as alignments and assignments and the different things that he can do will definitely benefit us as far as our offensive scheme," McCarthy said. "He just needs to have a great offseason, but this is a big opportunity for him."
Fantasy Tip: Montgomery proved himself to be a capable starting NFL running back in 2016. He averaged 5.9 yards per carry in the regular season and even ran for two touchdowns in the postseason. There probably won't be much of a learning curve left for Montgomery, if there ever was one, so drafting him as an RB2 or RB3 is sensible.

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers DT Ricky Jean-Francois' one-year deal is worth $2 million with $250,000 guaranteed. He received a $250,000 signing bonus, a $1.25 million base salary, a $400,000 roster bonus and a $100,000 workout bonus.

Fantasy Tip: After a slow start to last season, Rodgers caught fire and ended up leading the NFL in touchdown passes. He is should be one of the first quarterbacks off the board in drafts.

Fantasy Tip: It's too bad, as Peterson would have been a nice fit as a powerful, early-down thumper for a Packers' attack who needs the element in their offense. Look for Green Bay to turn its attention to backs like Oklahoma's Samaje Perine and BYU's Jamaal Williams next month in the 2017 NFL Draft in order to fill the void. Peterson will almost certainly need the lower his asking price in order to get a job before training camp.

The Green Bay Packers have "some" interest in a visit with free-agent WR Adrian Peterson (Vikings), but it is believed that might not happen until after the team can take stock of its roster following the draft, according to ESPN's Ben Goessling.
Fantasy Tip: All things considered, Green Bay may actually be Peterson's best landing spot. The Oakland Raiders seem more inclined to pursue Marshawn Lynch, while the New York Giants run a more shotgun-heavy, one-back offense that has never been a good fit for him. With such a talented incoming draft class at his position, Peterson could easily be waiting for a training camp injury before he signs with a team.
