Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Michel's had an up-and-down NFL career up to this point and it's unlikely that we see him rise back up to fantasy relevance any time soon. With Newton taking away a ton of rushing opportunities, plus Harris' assumed role on top of this depth chart, Michel's battling for a backup role on this team. There's virtually no upside to drafting Michel, so it's probably best to let someone else deal with the headache of rostering him this season.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Despite seeing a solid 14.2 percent target share last year, White was a non-factor in fantasy. Cam Newton wasn't throwing touchdowns, and he was stealing all the touchdowns near the goal line. Not that White gets many opportunities around the goal line, as he only totaled 35 carries last year, but the lack of touchdowns destroyed his usability. If Newton is still under center in 2021, White's going to have similar problems. If Mac Jones were to take over as the starter, it might inject some life back into White, as the offense would certainly be passing the ball more.How the mighty have fallen... Just a few years removed of being the Patriots first round pick, Michel finds himself fighting for touches in this backfield. It appears Damien Harris is the starter, while James White handles passing down work, and Rhamondre Stevenson and Michel fight for the scraps. Is it possible that Michel's injury last year has us overlooking his potential? He may have only had 79 carries last year, but he did average a massive 5.7 yards per carry on them. Maybe he's just better in a timeshare? This backfield is a mess, especially if Cam Newton is under center.
Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
James White is the best way to bet on Mac Jones playing early. Third among RBs in target share last year (17.9%) and second in targets per snap (0.19). In half-PPR, White finished as the RB26 by PPG in 2019 and RB10 in 2018. Would benefit massively from pass-heavier offense. - @JackMiller02

 The addition of Rhamondre Stevenson in the draft could mean Michel is a trade or even cut candidate.

Rumors of TB to reunite w/ TB would be optimal for his fantasy value
