Sony Michel running ‘full tilt’ after knee scope

Michel is progressing nicely following an offseason arthroscopic procedure on his knee.

Fantasy Impact

Michel is reportedly coming along according to schedule after a recent knee scope, and he’s been spending time with Tom Brady’s TB12 Sports to aid in the recovery process. Michel is still expected back for training camp, but his health concerns and the presence of rookie Damien Harris suggest a likely reduction in workload from last season.

Sony Michel missed spring practices due to knee scope

Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports Sony Michel missed the final portion of the Patriots' off-season program due to a knee scope.

Fantasy Impact

Michel has had a history of knee issue but this should be considered good news since it's a minor cleanup procedure that explains his absences lately. Damien Harris has reportedly had a strong spring and is expected to challenge Michel for touches in training camp.

Sony Michel remains sidelined

Sony Michel remains sidelined at Patriots minicamp.

Fantasy Impact

Sony Michel finishes post-season with six TDs

Sony Michel rushed 18 times for 94 yards and a score as the Patriots beat the Rams 13-3 in Super Bowl 53.

Fantasy Impact

Michel became a monster this post-season as the Patriots became a run-heavy offense throughout the playoffs. In all the 23-year-old rookie scored six times across three post-season games. The only thing limiting Michel from fantasy stardom is his inability to do much in the passing game. He will enter 2019 fantasy drafts as an upside RB2.

Sony Michel scores two more TDs in AFC Championship

Sony Michel rushed 29 times for 113 yards and two TDs as the Patriots beat the Chiefs 37-31 in the AFC Championship on Sunday night.

Fantasy Impact

Michel now has 53 carries and five scores through two career playoff games. He wasn’t targeted in the passing game as New England used him early and often between the tackles. The Rams have a somewhat soft run defense, which means Michel could be in for another monster workload two weeks from now.
