Before the 2017 regular season began, I was as high on Ty Montgomery’s first full season as a running back as anyone. You can check back to my article here, where I say not to worry about him even after some preseason injury scares. I was so confident, I made sure I drafted him in as many leagues as possible (four out of five to be exact).
My assumptions that Montgomery would be a fantasy star were spot on to start the season, but with seven weeks in the books, he has just about hit rock bottom due to injuries and the rise of yet another rookie running back, Aaron Jones. The Packers need to lean on a running back with the loss of Aaron Rodgers and Jones has looked like the running back to carry the burden. While it pains me to say it, I believe it may soon be time to wave goodbye to what could’ve and very well should’ve been a quality fantasy running back.
