Stanford's Montgomery (Knee) To Play More But Not Start
News:Ty Montgomery (knee) is expected to play more this week against Oregon but will not move back into the starting lineup, CSN Bay Area's Scott Reiss reports.
Analysis:Ty Montgomery has two catches for 10 yards in two games since returning from the knee injury, and while he may be ready to move back into a more significant role, he's still not expected to be at full health until the Cardinal's bowl game. Accordingly, Jamal-Rashad Patterson will continue to start at wide receiver.
News:Ty Montgomery (knee) isn't expected to be fully healthy until Stanford's bowl game, the official twitter of Stanford football reports.
Analysis: Jamal-Rashad Patterson is slated to start over Ty Montgomery on Saturday, and that could be the case for the rest of the regular season. Fantasy owners can safely drop Montgomery if they haven't already.
Stanford's Montgomery Sits Out vs. Washington State
News:Ty Montgomery (knee) did not play in Saturday's game against Washington State.
Analysis:Ty Montgomery should be considered questionable again for this weekend against Colorado. If he does play, a solid game could be in store in a favorable matchup.
News:Ty Montgomery (knee) practiced Monday and how he makes it through the rest of this week's practices will determine his status for Saturday's game against Washington State, the official twitter of Stanford football reports.

News:Ty Montgomery (knee) is doubtful for Saturday's game against Notre Dame, Stanford football reporter David Lombardi reports.

Stanford's Montgomery Finishes Loss to UW with 39 Yards
News:Ty Montgomery took six receptions for 39 yards Thursday night as Stanford fell to Washington 17-13 on the road in Seattle.
Analysis:Ty Montgomery, believed to be a breakout star at receiver coming into the 2012 season, has struggled to make a name for himself with Andrew Luck no longer under center. To this point in the year, the sophomore wideout has posted 15 receptions for 139 yards and has yet to find the end zone.
News:Ty Montgomery led all Stanford receivers with five catches for 49 yards Friday as the Cardinal narrowly defeated San Jose State, 20-17 in its 2012 season opener.
Analysis:Ty Montgomery's performance Friday has to leave fantasy owners with mixed emotions. The wideout ended up Stanford's top target in terms of receptions, accounting for a full one-third of quarterback Josh Nunes' 16 completions in the game. However, Stanford as a team only put up 125 yards through the air against the Spartans. Nunes will have to become more productive under center for Montgomery to retain the fantasy value many felt he would bring to the start of the 2012 season.
News: Stanford freshman receiver Ty Montgomery was a major player in the win over Notre Dame, catching six passes for 77 yards and a score.
Analysis: Montgomery has come on to be a major factor in the passing game the last half of the season. It appears that Montgomery and Griff Whalen will give Stanford's next quarterback -- should Luck leave -- a nice, productive one-two punch at receiver.
News: All that potential and optimism toward Stanford receiver Chris Owusu may amount to little. Owusu, on a big stage against USC, had but three catches for 21 yards.
Analysis: It's time to admit that Owusu is a major disappointment this season and has been surpassed by Griff Whalen and, perhaps, by promising frosh Ty Montgomery. Owusu has had very few productive moments this season.
News: Stanford wide receiver-returner Drew Terrell picked up an injury last week and is considered questionable for this week. Coach David Shaw said he thinks Terrell will be close to being ready, but they won't know more until late in the week.
Analysis: If Terrell can't go, the list of potential returners include Griff Whalen, Ty Montgomery, Tyler Gaffney or Keanu Nelson.
