The move comes after Monty had a costly fumble on a late kickoff against the Rams last week. Montgomery could be an improvement over Allen in Baltimore, and will give the Ravens some more versatility at RB. We think Alex Collins keeps his role as the primary ball carrier. Meanwhile in Green Bay, it means Jones and Williams will continue a share of the workload, but it likely means more of a fantasy boost for Jones. Williams should still see passing down snaps because of his blocking. The Pack will have to add anther RB, and the story said Darius Jackson was on the team early in the season and could be an option.
The Baltimore Ravens became the first team in NFL history to score on their first 12 red-zone trips. A franchise known for shattering the record books for defense is now setting the standard for efficiency inside the 20-yard line.
According to the story, Flacco is being smart and accurate with the ball. Allen suddenly turns into Todd Gurley around the goal line. And, overall, it's been a team effort to remain perfect in the red zone, where seven players have punched the ball into the end zone. Only a few years ago, the Ravens were one of the worst teams inside the 20.
Dixon limped off in the final two minutes of yesterday's blowout over the Bills. Injuries have been a significant issue for the third-year RB and now it looks like he's going to miss more time. It should mean a bump in work for Collins and Allen.
