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 Jonathan Taylor now in town, Mack's upside is completely gone. He's still going to be involved in this offense, but it might not be enough to be a factor for fantasy football. With that being said, if something were to happen to Taylor, Mack's value would skyrocket.
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. 
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
 Back up slightly. I think Taylor will have more fantasy points on the season, but Mack likely to be the Week 1 starter and this is possibly the best offensive line in football.
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 never reached the expected performance out of Mack behind the Colts top-tier offensive line, so why shouldn't we have expected them to draft a running back? Drafting Jonathan Taylor in the second round was a straight dagger to Mack's value in any format. He'll be lucky to get eight touches per game in that offense this year.
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?Did NOT survive the draft haha. Coaches have said it will be a 1-1 punch with Mack and Taylor. Even if that's true, you obviously want the more explosive Taylor of the 2. There has been a bit of complaining about how his pass catching was never fully utilized in the pros, because he was capable in college. That is probably because he is terrible in passpro, never ranking above 60, according to PFF, and below 30 his last 2 years(out of 100). If you draft him, you hope for a Latavius Murray like roll.
