Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 11. Jamaal Williams should see a big workload against the Ravens. It’s not a good matchup, but Williams should see 15-20 touches if Montgomery is sidelined. Devonta Mays will serve as his primary backup, but Aaron Ripkowski could mix in as well.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy earlier in the day said he didn't expect Montgomery would play this week and now it's official, as he has been ruled OUT for Week 11's contest against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Impact:

Jamaal Williams will be the team's No. 1 RB this week. Our aFPA metric shows this to be a great matchup for Williams, and we have him ranked as our No. 14 RB in both standard and PPR leagues.

During a Friday morning news conference, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said he doesn't believe Montgomery will play this week against the Ravens.

"I think Ty is going to be out this week," McCarthy said. "I don't think there's a long-term concern."

Fantasy Impact:

The Packers are already without Aaron Jones, and if Montgomery does indeed miss this week's contest against the Ravens, it means Jamaal Williams will be the team's No. 1 RB.

Our aFPA metric shows this to be a great matchup for Williams, and we have him ranked as our No. 14 RB in both standard and PPR leagues.

Aaron Jones has already been ruled out for 3-6 weeks, and with Montgomery looking like he'll join Jones on the sideline this week, that would leave Jamaal Williams to shoulder the load at RB for the Packers this week against the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact:

Williams saw his most extensive workload of the season last week, carrying the ball 20 times for 67 yards. In what our aFPA metric deems a fantastic matchup for Williams, we have him ranked as a top-14 option at RB in both standard and PPR leagues.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) did not practice Wednesday. With Aaron Jones out for sure, all that’s standing between Jamaal Williams and a monster workload is Montgomery’s availability. If Montgomery plays, the Packers will likely split the work between the two.

Packers RB Aaron Jones expected to be sidelined 3-6 weeks with MCL injury, per source.

Related players: Ty Montgomery, Jamaal Williams

Fantasy Impact:

If he misses three weeks, Jones would return for Week 14—when a lot of fantasy playoffs begin. Of course, anything longer than three weeks means he could miss time in the fantasy playoffs. Montgomery reportedly re-injured his ribs leaving Williams as the team's likely RB1 heading into Week 11.

Pats Beat: Team shows glimpse of how they could use TEs

Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett were rarely healthy at the same time in the 2016 season, so we never saw the duo achieve its full potential. But when they did play together, the Pats liked to line them up next to each other on the same side of the formation. They frequently did this on Sunday night, and it resulted in a few big plays.

Fantasy Impact:

Bennett played just seven snaps on SNF, but QB Tom Brady was 6-for-6 for 78 yards during that time. Bennett actually caught three of those passes for a total of 38 yards while Gronk had a catch for 26 yards. Bennett clearly isn't healthy but isn't letting on the severity of the injury. Clearly he's healthy enough to play, but in terms of fantasy it's hard to tell right now if the Pats were just easing him in or if he's going to be limited.
