In what can only be presumed is his first of many nominations for the title, David Montgomery is up for FedEx Ground Player of the Week.

The running back performed spectacularly as the Detroit Lions pummeled Green Bay, rushing for 121 yards on 32 carries and scoring three touchdowns.

Montgomery’s competition for the title is Christian McCaffrey, who ran 106 yards on 30 carries and three rushing touchdowns in the San Francisco 49ers 35-16 win over the Arizona Cardinals, and Derrick Henry, who tallied 122 yards on 22 carries and a rushing touchdown in the Tennessee Titans’ 27-3 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

In case you’re curious, McCaffrey won both Week 1 and Week 2, and De’Von Achane of the Miami Dolphins won Week 3. You’re not going to let McCaffrey three-peat are you? Click here to vote.
