Nerdy Football Analysis: Montgomery split time with the Packers and Ravens and got lost in the shuffle in Baltimore competing for playing time with Gus Edwards, Kenneth Dixon and Javorius Allen. Montgomery will now fight for touches with Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon behind Le’Veon Bell. Montgomery won’t have much fantasy value in 2019 unless Bell misses time.
