Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
 Down quite a bit. With the Lions drafting Swift and having an early Week 5 bye, I feel like Kerryon could lose snaps early in the season if he doesn't start out strong.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
With Cam Newton behind center, this offense is going to be much more potent than it would have been with Jarrett Stidham. This benefits Michel with more scoring opportunities and trips into the red zone. However, the downside is that Newton has the size and power to take away some of those goal line touches. Michel's nothing more than a RB3 this season, in my opinion.With D'Andre Swift now in town, it's hard to see Johnson having any sort of top-tier fantasy impact. Johnson will have upside if Swift gets injured, but these two might cancel out each other's true potential this upcoming season.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Michel recovering from foot surgery, per sources. The surgery was viewed as more maintenance-based to relieve discomfort. How Michel's rehab progresses will determine if he opens training camp on PUP. @MikeReiss - I don't think he starts the season on PUP. I'm like being able to get him in the 8th-9th round. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After a somewhat disappointing rookie campaign where he failed to finish as a top-24 running back despite racking up 209 carries in the high-scoring Patriots offense, Michel had an even worse sophomore campaign, averaging just 3.7 yards per carry and scoring just seven touchdowns on 259 touches. The Patriots spent a first-round pick on him, so he'll be given every opportunity to succeed, but they won't allow him to be inefficient much longer with Damien Harris waiting in the wings. Michel simply hasn't been the player we watched at Georgia. It's hard to see losing Tom Brady actually help him become more efficient.We all know Johnson's struggled to stay on the field over his first two seasons, and it led the Lions to draft D'Andre Swift at the top of the second round. You don't draft a running back at the top of the second round to not use him. Johnson's skillset clashes with that of Swift, so it's unlikely he sees more than 10-12 touches per game.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Michel has justifiably fallen out of favor for fantasy owners after yet another sub-par year, and there's little excitement about him this year. He has averaged nearly 16 carries per game in his career, however, and may be asked to carry more of a load now that Tom Brady is no longer under center. But his upside is limited by two roadblo cks: the presence of James White, Rex Burkhead, and Damien Harris, and his complete lack of involvement in the passing game. Michel has just 31 targets and 19 receptions over his 29 career games. In standard scoring leagues, there's a chance he may be slightly undervalued, but it would be hard to rely on him as anything more than a bench player in or half- or full-PPR leagues. 
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
I've had 475 total touches in my first 2 years despite missing 3 games, but have finished as RB28, and 29 in those 2 years. Who am I? And why am I so bad?If he could ever finish a season he's been on pace for 200+ carries and at least each 30 targets the last 2 years. Just needs to survive the draft.
