David Montgomery Returns For The Lions
8 months ago

Detroit running back David Montgomery will return from injury Thursday night as the Lions face the Green Bay Packers.

David Montgomery was sidelined last week after suffering a thigh bruise in Week 2. He will return to the field on Thursday Night Football as the Detroit Lions’ lead running back. The Lions face the Green Bay Packers in the matchup.

Montgomery led the Lions in RB touches in the first two weeks and is expected to wrest that role back from rookie teammate Jahmyr Gibbs. Although Montgomery is firmly planted as the “primary back”, fantasy owners should view the pair as a duo and expect workloads that approach equal touches.

Jahmyr Gibbs Disappoints in Season-Opener
9 months ago

Running Back David Montgomery led the Lions backfield in touches in Week 1 as Jahmyr Gibbs disappointed in debut.

Jahmyr Gibbs fantasy football owners are disappointed everywhere today. With the thought that the Lions would go with more of a 50/50 time share approach heading into the season. However, it was veteran running back David Montgomery commanding the backfield. Montgomery led the backfield with 55 snaps, while Jahmyr Gibbs played just 19 which was a 27% snap share.

With that snap disparity, Montgomery also outproduced Gibbs in fantasy points 13.4 to just 6 for Gibbs. Gibbs did see two targets in the passing game, however, some had thought Gibbs could be the second-leading target-getter behind Amon-Ra St. Brown, but he finished fifth in targets on the team in targets in Week 1.

It’s not time to hit the panic button on Gibbs just quite yet. Gibbs is expected to keep getting more involved in the offense as the season progresses starting next week against the Seattle Seahawks.
