Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
 Hunt missed the first 10 weeks of the season and wasn't the starter when he came back, but the Browns found a way to get him enough touches that he produced virtually the same fantasy points per game as Nick Chubb over the final six weeks. While we can't quite expect that, he should be a solid week-to-week flex play with incredible upside were Chubb to go down.
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.The Browns are going to have a new offense in 2020, so we can't automatically assume that Hunt will be as big as he was in the gameplanning process in 2020. From the time he entered the lineup last year, he was the No. 26 running back in half-PPR formats while Nick Chubb was the No. 18 running back. The reason we have to assume he'll have a role is due to the Browns tendering him with a second rounder instead of moving on. Chubb is the superior play in this backfield, but it's important to note that Hunt has standalone value, while also offering league-winning handcuff value. If Chubb were to miss time, Hunt would be a top-five play.
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 roadblocks: 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. That's especially true given his foot surgery in May which could impact him early in the season. 
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
No thanks. No thanks. No thanks. There's no hidden value here. This is a guy who averaged 3.7 yards per carry on a decent offense last year and has never surpassed 7 TDs in a season. With the best goal-line running QB in NFL history leading the way now, Michel is best left off of your squad. 
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Hunt has absolute league winning potential if Chubb were to miss time, and is a trustworthy Flex and fringe RB2 with Chubb. Averaged 10 looks a game once he joined Cleveland in 2019 and averaged double digit points in ppr leagues. He is a tremendous option at his current ADP. Has the floor and sky hiigh ceiling.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
 Hunt showed well in the second half of the season with 464 yards from scrimmage and 3 touchdowns as a receiving back and change of pace to RB Nick Chubb. He should be a flex option if he can maintain that production over an entire season.
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.Hunt should have some standalone value in 2020, but his true value comes if something were to happen to Nick Chubb. With where he's being drafted right now, Hunt would be an absolute league winner in that scenario.
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
 I keep moving him up, especially considering the receptions he's likely to get in this offense.
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. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
You know what you'll be getting if you draft Sony Michel. 900 yards, 7ish TDs and an RB3 finish. Most weeks that'll mean single digit fantasy points and that's not ideal, but there is upside. If the Pats are forced to go very run-heavy given their awkward QB situation, it's possible Michel will get a lot more run. Then again it's also possible Damien Harris comes in and takes a large part of Michel's work. Ultimately, he's little more than a backup with some non-PPR upside.Kareem Hunt returns to the best backfield committee in the NFL likely to remain behind stud RB Nick Chubb. He will however remain the main passing back and that will be valuable as Chubb rarely sees the field when the Browns are chasing quick points. Given they've had three winning seasons in the last 30 years, that could continue to be a common site. Hunt also has enormous handcuff upside but he's very much a startable RB even with Chubb around. The Browns appear to be doubling down on the run and Hunt can expect to see 10-15 high value touches each week. That means borderline RB2 value if he can swing the committee towards 50-50 and flex upside if Chubb remains the main man. Draft the former Chief over every backup or low level starter in the league as his upside will win you your league.
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?Was pacing for 74 receptions, that's James White level with a better YAC ability than White, and better chance at gaining rushing attempts.
