Jacob Wayne
Lineups
The Dolphins' backfield was far from a fantasy goldmine last season - it was the lowest scoring group of running backs on the year. Jordan Howard and Matt Breida will help their real-life offense, but in fantasy, it's difficult to project either of them having a massive role. Breida is one of the fastest players in the NFL and he is a capable pass-catcher, so he has the higher upside than Howard if he gets more work than most expect.It feels like I'm the only one who's still in on Sony Michel for this season. Yes, he's injured, and yes, the Patriots offense is going to get worse without Tom Brady. However, Bill Belichick made Michel a first-round pick and has given him the full workload for the majority of his time on the field. If Michel can stay healthy, he should benefit from playing next to a mobile QB in Cam Newton, and he could easily surpass 250 touches.
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 his complete lack of involvement in the passing game, as he 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 given that Damien Harris was placed on IR and Lamar Miller was released, 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.
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
 Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels prefers a running scheme heavy on gap blocking, and Michel is a great fit for that approach. It's his lack of involvement in the passing game that will continue to limit his fantasy upside, especially in PPR leagues.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Still somehow only 25, the injury-prone Matt Breida moves to the Dolphins without an injury-free season under his belt. Honestly, I'm not even sure he's had an injury-free game. He will likely fall into a change-of-pace/receiving role in a Brian Flores offense that doesn't use its RBs enough. Hopefully that changes with two NFL-calibre runners now on the the books but I wouldn't have high hopes for Breida this year. He's likely to spend most of the year on your bench and if you need to use him, you're in big trouble (or Jordan Howard is injured).The Damien Harris hype is building as Sony Michel battles to be ready for Week 1. He's becoming more of a low-upside gamble by the day but will provide some upside if you get him late enough in drafts.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There are a lot of fantasy owners expecting Jordan Howard to be the lead back in Miami, though if I'm being honest, Breida may be the better option, and he's much cheaper. While health has been an issue for Breida, he's performed when given opportunity and will get most of the passing-down work in 2020. Staying on the field has been and will continue to be an obstacle.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. Not only that, but he now has to worry about Cam Newton stealing goal-line touches.
Rob Wilson
The Fantasy Footballers
An under the radar player that Miami seeked out. Keep an eye on him as someone you may kick yourself for burying completely 
Dalton Kates
APEX Fantasy Leagues
Great athlete and efficient player ever since stepping on the field in the NFL. Offers a potential pass-catching role that Howard doesn't posses on the Dolphins. Should be opportunity in the committee to be fantasy relevant and be efficient with his touches. 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Breida finds himself in Miami after being apart of a draft-day trade and should now be in a position to lead the Dolphins backfield. Problem is, the Dolphins backfield has been one of the least fantasy productive backfields in the league over the last few years. That being said, Tua Tagovailoa could change everything in Miami. Breida is an interesting name to keep an eye on late in drafts.Few players are more difficult to gauge than Sony Michel. He can score three TD's one week and then have a total of 26 yards the next. In PPR formats he simply doesn't see the ball enough to considered a starter.
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.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Breida's coming over to Miami from San Francisco and will be the compliment to Jordan Howard in this backfield. Breida's electric with the ball in his hands and he's shown the capability of being valuable for fantasy football in the past, but he hasn't been able to stay healthy. The Dolphins will aim to keep Breida's carry count light, which should help his longevity and durability this season. If that's the case, he should be borderline relevant and could be a solid bench option to plug in on bye weeks. He's a solid RB4 this season.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.
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
Miami was arguably the most "available" volume across the league. Breida will be a great "lightning" complement to Howard's "Thunder"*Update - Latest foot surgery extra concerning* Perhaps the Pats go run-obsessed in the Post Brady era? Nothing to really dig in and love here in such a messy RBBC, and wouldn't be surprised if Damien Harris pushes for the big back this year much harder.

Breida has flashed big-play ability throughout his career thanks to his 4.44 speed (92% according to playerprofiler.com) and 99% burst (playerprofiler.com). His career 5.0 ypc and 8.4 ypr reflect that ability. Health and fumbling issues (four fumbles on 384 career carries) are the only things that could prevent him from claiming the top spot on Miami's depth chart. @MrHill9169Michel 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.

 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?
