Packers trade RB Ty Montgomery to Ravens

Tuesday, October 30, 2018, 4:03pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Baltimore Ravens made a low-risk move to help the NFL's No. 24 rushing attack, trading a draft pick to the Green Bay Packers for running back Ty Montgomery, a source told ESPN's Josina Anderson.

The Packers will receive a 2020 seventh-round draft pick in return, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Related players: Javorius Allen, Aaron Jones, Jamaal Williams

Fantasy Impact:

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.

Scouting Report

Week 11 at Seattle Seahawks

Aaron Jones got 172 yards from scrimmage and scored twice in a breakout game -- finally! Even with his big day, he only touched the ball 18 times, for 15 rushes and three receptions. Mike McCarthy is finally coming around to the idea of getting the explosive young back more involved, though. The Seahawks have allowed six rushing touchdowns this season, all in their last six games. Jones is a borderline RB1 play or high-end RB2 option this week in a Thursday night contest.
