Sony Michel stifled by Dolphins

Sony Michel rushed 20 times for 57 yards in the Patriots' Week 14 loss to the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

With no targets and no scores, Michel's day was very disappointing, which may become a theme for him since James White is the clear lead back in passing situations. Michel has plenty of touchdown equity in the Patriots offense, so don't be too worries. Keep using Michel as a RB2 play with less appeal in PPR formats.

Sony Michel held in check by Vikings

Sony Michel rushed 17 times for 63 yards and caught his only target for a seven-yard gain in the Patriots' Week 13 win over the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Michel's final output looks fine, but not exciting for his owners. Seeing FB James Develin punch in two 1-yard touchdowns hurts, but Michel was still the lead back on the ground, and should be fine moving forward. His touchdown equity is still strong, despite losing two to the fullback this week. Michel should remain in starting lineups next week in a plus-matchup at Miami.

Sony Michel shreds Jets out of bye week

Sony Michel rushed 21 times for 133 yards and a touchdown and caught both of his targets for 12 yards in the Patriots' Week 12 win over the Jets.

Fantasy Impact

Michel dominated the touches for the Patriots, and though he left briefly with an apparent leg injury, he returned to action. Owners should not be worried at this point and should start Michel as an every-week RB2, though note that next week's matchup against the Vikings is tough, so temper expectations slightly..

Sony Michel returns to Week 12 action

Sony Michel returned to the Patriots' Week 12 game against the Jets after leaving with an injury earlier on.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, Michel's injury appeared to be minor and he is back in the game appearing not to be limited in any way. He should be just fine moving forward. Consider him a weekly RB2.

Sony Michel leaves Week 12 with leg injury

Sony Michel left the Patriots' Week 12 game against the Jets with a leg injury after being bent over backwards in a tackle.

Fantasy Impact

It looked painful but according to David Chao who analyzes professional sports injuries, he does not expect Michel to miss much time if any. Michel might even return today. Sounds like owners should not worry. James White should see increased work in the mean time.
