New Orleans Saints WR/RB Ty Montgomery will be moved to running back with the team shorthanded at the position for Week 17 due to COVID-19 and the resulting contact tracing.
Huddle Up: Montgomery, who now has the most RB experience on the roster, could see double-digit carries for the first time since 2017 with the Packers, although we certainly expect QB Taysom Hill, who has 80 rushing attempts this season, to see work in the backfield as well along with RB Tony Jones Jr., who is being called up from the practice squad. The bottom line is that Montgomery can't be trusted as anything more than a deeper-league desperation flex play.

New Orleans Saints WR Ty Montgomery posted two receptions for 25 yards on three targets in Week 2 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: Montgomery is a versatile player who has lined up in the backfield for rushes, as well as as a wideout, during his time with the Green Bay Packers, Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets. However, he has plenty of company at both spots and isn't going to get enough touches to make him fantasy worthy in most leagues.

New Orleans Saints RB Ty Montgomery 'seems like a clear alternative' to RB Alvin Kamara if Kamara were to miss time, according to Larry Holder of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: Latavius Murray would likely be the main beneficiary of a Kamara injury, but Montgomery could absorb a lot of the targets out of the backfield and become a potential flex option in PPR formats.

Free-agent RB Ty Montgomery (Jets) signed with the New Orleans Saints Friday, May 15. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Montgomery likely will compete for the No. 3 running back job during training camp but is unlikely to see much playing time behind Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray. He can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

New York Jets RB Ty Montgomery posted three runs for 25 yards and he added three receptions for 15 yards on three targets in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns on Monday, Sept. 16.
Huddle Up: Montgomery is the primary backup to Le'Veon Bell, so his touches figure to be rather limited. However, he is a name to remember in the event anything happens to Bell which forces him to the shelf. The Jets travel to meet the Patriots in Week 3.

New York Jets RB Ty Montgomery rushed seven times for 36 yards and a touchdown in a 22-10 preseason win over the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Aug. 15.
Huddle Up: Montgomery's ability to play both running back and receiver should help him see some touches, but unless something happens to Le'Veon Bell, it is unlikely any other back for the Jets will have fantasy relevance.

New York Jets RB Ty Montgomery told the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta that he feels like 'a true hybrid in this offense (under head coach Adam Gase).'
'It was a surprising deal when he came in here. I was surprised he wasn't signed yet. The fact that we had a shot at him coming here and when we got him signed, the wheels started turning on offense as far as all right, what are we going to do? How are we going to use these guys? What's it going to look like? So, we're experimenting with all that stuff. His versatility and his flexibility and his knowledge ... and he's extremely smart. So, we put a lot on his plate and he's able to play a lot of different roles for us,' Gase said.
Huddle Up: It seems unlikely he'll see enough touches behind Le'Veon Bell to be relevant in fantasy, although that could change if Bell is forced to miss time due to injury. However, there is no question Montgomery's experience as a running back and receiver could help him serve as a mismatch weapon for defenses.
