New York Jets running back Ty Montgomery made three catches on three targets for 17 yards in a win over the Cowboys Sunday. Montgomery didn't get a carry in the game as head coach Adam Gase continues to feature Le'Veon Bell. Montgomery's three targets were more than Bell today, but Bell had 14 of the 15 running back carries. Montgomery will see sparse work in the passing game, but overall he won't see enough carries or targets to be worth starting in fantasy.
New York Jets running back Ty Montgomery had two carries for one yard and Bilal Powell had one carry for four yards in a loss to the Eagles Sunday. Neither running back had a target in the passing game. Before the season, head coach Adam Gase said the Jets would not work starting running back Le'Veon Bell the way he was in Pittsburgh. That has not been the case, however, as Bell has played well over 90 percent of the Jets offensive snaps while no other running back has gotten more than six touches in a game. Montgomery is the likely handcuff to Bell should Bell get injured, but as long as the Jets are using Bell as a true every-down workhorse, no other Jets running back has any fantasy value.
New York Jets running back Ty Montgomery is looking to get on the field more after the team's Week 4 bye. Montgomery has played less than 20 percent of the team's offensive snaps and has been out-touched by Le'Veon Bell 76-10. In the preseason, head coach Adam Gase said the Jets would not give Bell as much work as he got in Pittsburgh, but that has not been the case so far with Bell handling 96.3 percent of the offensive snaps. It's possible the early bye week made it easier for the Jets to feature Bell early and Gase will operate more of a split moving forward. However, even if Montgomery starts to see more work he is the clear number two in this backfield and his only fantasy value is a handcuff to Bell.
New York Jets running back Ty Montgomery was excused from practice on Friday due to personal reasons. Montgomery is expected to be active in Week 3 on the road against the Patriots. As expected, T-Mont has taken a back seat to the bell cow in this offense in Le'Veon Bell. The 26-year-old has just five carries and three receptions in the first two games. The Jets will continue to ride Bell this weekend in New England, especially with third-string quarterback Luke Falk thrown into the fire. Montgomery will just hope for scraps. He doesn't have any standalone fantasy value and is strictly a handcuff for Bell owners.
New York Jets running back Ty Montgomery has been a non-factor in the offense through two weeks. Montgomery became a hot name early last week when starter Le'Veon Bell was listed as questionable with a shoulder injury, but Bell wound up playing Monday and out-touched Montgomery 31-6. Through two weeks, Montgomery has only five carries and three catches and has played less than 30 snaps so far this season. It's possible Montgomery earns more work as the season moves on if the Jets try and rest Bell, but for fantasy purposes, Montgomery has almost no value except as a handcuff to Bell.
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.
Fantasy Spin: 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 running back Ty Montgomery had three carries for 25 yards and three catches for 15 yards in a loss to Cleveland Monday. Montgomery was a hot waiver wire add earlier in the week with Le'Veon Bell questionable with a shoulder injury but Bell was fine and handled the lion's share of the backfield work out-touching Montgomery 31-6. Head coach Adam Gase has made it clear through two weeks Bell is the centerpiece of this offense and Montgomery won't have much fantasy value unless Bell misses time.
New York Jets running back Ty Montgomery should see more touches in Week 2 with starter Le'Veon Bell (shoulder) questionable for the game. Montgomery was a non-factor last week against the Bills gaining only four yards on two carries and not recording a target. He should see his workload go up this week regardless, but should only be started if Bell is ruled out, something fantasy owners may not know until Monday making him a risky start unless there is definitive word on Bell. With QB Sam Darnold (illness) also out Monday it could be a tough night for the Jets offense. However, if Montgomery is the lead back the former receiver should be a relatively safe RB2 based on the volume and targets he should see, especially in PPR formats.
New York Jets running back Ty Montgomery had two carries for four yards and didn't get a target in his first game as a member of the Jets. Coming into the game there was talk of Montgomery taking some work from Le'Veon Bell in Bell's first game back after a year out of football but that clearly was not the case. Bell stole the show playing all 62 of the team's offensive snaps leaving almost nothing for Montgomery in terms of playing time. Montgomery's usage may pick up at some point, but from a fantasy perspective, his only real use right now is as a handcuff to Bell.
The New York Jets are 'actively looking' for running backs on the trade market to pair with RB Le'Veon Bell and RB Ty Montgomery, according to league sources.
Fantasy Spin: Any move would likely be to just add some depth. Bell is set for volume-based RB1 production in a workhorse role, and Montgomery should handle most of the leftover touches as a versatile backup.
New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell could be eased in early in the season after sitting out all of the 2018 campaign with Pittsburgh. Bell hasn't played a game in 20 months and isn't playing at all this preseason. He also hasn't practiced at all with the starting offensive line. There will be rust and timing issues, which is why Ty Montgomery could share the load with Bell to begin the season. Bell skipped training camp and preseason in 2017 and had only 180 rushing yards (3.5 average) over the first three games. There might be rust and more shared touches with Montgomery, but Bell remains a RB1 worth considering late in the first round or early in the second. Montgomery is a solid handcuff in the later rounds.
New York Jets running back Ty Montgomery carried the ball eight times for 21 yards and caught all four of his targets for 24 yards and a touchdown against the Saints on Saturday. Montgomery has been the Jets most productive running back so far with Le'Veon Bell not playing preseason games. The former wide receiver finishes the preseason with 67 yards on 17 carries with a touchdown running to go along with five catches. He should be considered the primary backup to Bell with some PPR value in deep leagues as he should see plenty of work on passing downs.
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.
Fantasy Spin: 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 (groin) limped off with appeared to be a groin injury Monday, Aug. 12.
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.
Fantasy Spin: 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.
New York Jets RB Ty Montgomery (ankle) returned to practice Saturday, Aug. 3, after leaving the previous session with an ankle injury.
New York Jets RB Ty Montgomery's versatility as a runner and receiver makes him a good fit in head coach Adam Gase's offense, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post, and Montgomery continues to be the frontrunner to return kicks.
