Ty Montgomery is causing NFL fantasy fury for Yahoo owners

Nobody would have seen it coming at the start of the season, but somehow, Ty Montgomery has become the Green Bay Packers starting running back.

With both Eddie Lacy and James Starks going down with injury, Knile Davis not spending enough time in the system after his trade from the Chiefs, and Don Jackson being a practice squad player at best, the Packers have found themselves with the wideout Montgomery taking handoffs.

And Montgomery excelled. Out of nowhere, the wideout put up 12 fantasy points for owners who braved it. However, those same owners are now acting out angrily on Twitter.

ESPN has now decided that Montgomery can both be played as a running back and a wide receiver. Those on Yahoo, however, aren't quite as lucky.

As of right now, he’s still a wide receiver only, and although a change may be possible in the not-too-distant future, it doesn’t sound promising.

This has not sat well with Montgomery owners on Yahoo, who are now looking jealously over at their ESPN counterparts that also own Ty. 

Those people are now taking to Twitter to air their grievances.

What do you make of the situation? Should Yahoo update Montgomery or did ESPN jump the gun too early on the Packers player? Let us know in the comments below...
