Jacob Wayne
Lineups
Utah's Zack Moss was one of my favorite running back prospects in this draft class and I love this landing spot for him. Devin Singletary is the presumed starter as of now, but I see Moss as the better player long-term. Frank Gore had 166 carries in this offense last year, most of which will go to Moss. Depending on how effective Singletary is early in the year, I can see him ceding more and more work to Moss as the season goes on.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.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
I know Devin Singletary had 961 yards from scrimmage and 4 touchdowns as he emerged as the starter in the second half of last season. Singletary is going to have a role, but it has become clear to me in the preseason that Moss will lead the team in touches this year and he is the flex back to own in Buffalo. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Zack Moss takes over as the new Frank Gore in the Bills offense. That doesn't sound particularly exciting but that means 150-180 carries, a heap of goal line looks and a dozen bonus receptions. If Moss can show even middling efficiency, that's an RB3 finish. Moss has massive upside though. He has the talent to take over this backfield and become a workhorse plus Gore showed us what can happen if Singletary gets injured with 12 half-PPR PPG over that span. I love the Moss gamble compared to what else you're getting in the double digit rounds.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
The Bills have already come forward and said that Moss will take over the role that Frank Gore played last year. Before injuries and age started to add up for Gore, he was getting a lot of work in the Bills offense. He averaged 12.5 carries per game through Week 12, which is a big enough role to be considered an RB4. Not just that, but Gore ranked 12th among running backs for carries inside the five-yard-line. Moss is going to crush Devin Singletary's upside, and if Singletary were to miss time, Moss would be a top-15 start every week.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.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Moss figures to be the new Frank Gore in this BIlls offense which is not a terrible spot to be in, especially for a rookie with a lot of talent. Through 12 weeks in 2019, Gore averaged nearly 13 carries per game. If Moss sees that workload he'd be worthy of a bench spot and is certainly worth handcuffing to Devin Singletary.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.
Dalton Kates

Un-athletic producer in college who goes to a team where he will be in a committee. Offers standalone value as a potential goal line back who can get work in the receiving game. 
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
Zack Moss stays down towards the middle of my Big Board purely due to his injury concerns. However, if there was a place for him to land and maximize his fantasy value, it's Buffalo. He'll assume the Frank Gore role and push Devin Singletary back into a change-of-pace role. Moss could have TD upside due to his usage as a goal-line back, but the injury concerns are a real thing with him.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
 *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.
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.

 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?
