McCarthy: Ty Montgomery is 'a running back'

Ryan Wood - [Full Article]

Mike McCarthy said Packers RB Ty Montgomery will stick at RB. "He's a running back. He wants to change his number."

Fantasy Impact: 

Montgomery started getting significant playing time in Week 6, and from that point on, he averaged 73 total yards and 0.27 TD, not including the playoffs. This resulted in 13.0 PPG in PPR formats and 9.0 PPG in standard. In two healthy playoff games (versus the Giants and the Cowboys) he gained a combined 149 yards and found the end zone twice. His fantasy stock in 2017 will depend largely on what else the Packers do at the position. Montgomery is best suited to be part of a committee since he's already shown a tendency to get dinged up. He'll be a PPR option in the middle rounds.
