2018 Fantasy Outlook
The converted wide receiver opened 2017 as the Packers' lead back, but that role doesn't appear to be in Montgomery's future after a lackluster season that included a mark of 3.0 YPC through three games before he suffered cracked ribs Week 4. He returned from the injury but never regained his lead role, eventually landing on IR in December and having wrist surgery shortly thereafter. In his absence, rookies Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones both showed better skill as runners, and their blitz pickup abilities in particular likely will be prioritized by a franchise concerned with keeping Aaron Rodgers upright. Montgomery still has some potential as a gadget player who can line up all over the field, and he has the quickness and elusiveness to make defenders miss while his size and balance allow him to pick up yards after contact, but without the assurance of a defined role in the offense, consistent touches could be hard to come by once Jones returns from a two-game suspension.

Montgomery's one-year contract is a veteran minimum deal with a $90,000 signing bonus, Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News reports.
ANALYSIS
Montgomery's experience and receiving ability might make him the favorite for the No. 2 running back job, but his contract suggests he'll face competition from Elijah McGuire, Trenton Cannon and De'Angelo Henderson. The 26-year-old hasn't done much of note since 2016 and could end up on the roster bubble if he struggles to get acclimated during the offseason program. Coach Adam Gase said he's wary of overworking Le'Veon Bell, but it's still a good bet the prized offseason acquisition pushes for 20 touches per game (his career average is 24.9).

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
Beginning the year buried on the depth chart at wide receiver, Montgomery was shifted into the backfield as a passing-down back after Eddie Lacy and James Starks couldn't stay healthy. As the season progressed, however, Montgomery began receiving carries as well as targets, culminating in a Week 15 game in Chicago in which he turned 16 totes into 162 yards and two TDs. Montgomery finished the campaign with a strong mark of 5.9 YPC and actually led all running backs with 2.8 yards after contact per touch. At 6-0, 216, he has the size to handle a starter's workload and the punishment that comes with running between the tackles, but he's still a work in progress at the position and his skill set reflects his receiving background. That rawness as a running back gives him some untapped upside, though, and the Packers showed confidence in Montgomery's ability to adapt by letting Lacy walk as a free agent and not drafting a back until the fourth round, although they ended up using three Day 3 picks on the position. With Aaron Rodgers delivering him the ball, Montgomery will remain an enticing PPR option, and don't underestimate his potential in standard formats.
Montgomery is a compact and versatile player capable of making his presence felt both in the slot and out of the backfield, but he especially shines on special teams with a knack for returning kickoffs. Unfortunately, a devastating high ankle sprain in Week 6 prematurely ended his 2015 campaign, and his attempts to return to help his team make a playoff push ultimately landed him on injured reserve come December. Looking ahead to 2016, Montgomery's first task will be to make the final 53-man roster. Should he succeed, he could then take aim at securing the third receiver role behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. No matter where he ends up in the pecking order, at the very least, expect Montgomery to be heavily involved on special teams.
The Packers' top trio of receivers is arguably the best in the league, but the team still decided to address the position in this year's draft, selecting Montgomery in the third round. While it will be a stretch for Montgomery to make much of an impact in the Packers' offense as a rookie, he could serve on special teams after averaging over 25 yards per kickoff return and over 18 yards per punt return in his senior season at Stanford. After finishing 31st in yards per kickoff return a season ago,the Packers could certainly use his services in that department.
