Sony Michel stays hot on SNF

Sony Michel rushed 24 times for 106 yards and two touchdowns as the Patriots beat the Chiefs in a shootout, 43-40 on Sunday Night Football.

Fantasy Impact

Michel was featured early and often despite being questionable entering the game. He once again rewarded fantasy owners with a monster performance and has now gone over 100 total yards in three straight weeks. During that stretch he has yet to see fewer than 18 carries. The 23-year-old has a tougher matchup in Week 7 when New England visits the Chicago Bears, but he'll remain a high-end RB2.

Sony Michel questionable due to knee injury

Sony Michel is questionable to play against the Chiefs due to a knee injury.

Fantasy Impact

Michel was limited at practice through the week. There's no indication that this is more than the team protecting their leading rusher prior to Sundays, so Michel is expected to be good to go against the Chiefs. As such, he'll continue to be a strong RB2 with RB1 upside.

Sony Michel limited in practice before Week 6 matchup

Sony Michel (knee) was spotted riding a stationary bike as the rest of the team warmed up for Thursday's practice, Zack Cox of reports.

Fantasy Impact

Michel has been limited in practice all week but there has been no word on his availability for the game on Sunday against the Chiefs. With just James White and Kenjon Barner as the only other running backs, the fact the team has not picked anyone up for depth makes it seem like Michel should be good to go for the Week 6 matchup. Keep an eye on updates.

Sony Michel carries 25 times in win

Sony Michel carried 25 times for 112 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 4 win over the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

Michel is clearly a focal point of the offense now that he's healthy, and that should continue. His performance today was strong, though he was not targeted once. Start him every week as an RB2 moving forward, and downgrade him slightly in PPR if he doesn't see targets.

Sony Michel gets 15 touches on SNF

Sony Michel carried 14 times for 50 yards and caught one of his three targets for -1 yard in the Patriots' Week 3 win over the Lions.

Fantasy Impact

Michel didn't get much going, wasn't efficient with his touches, and didn't really pass the eye test. It was not a strong performance from him in nearly any aspect, but the Patriots seem intent on feeding him the ball -- perhaps to justify their first round pick. If Michel continues to see 15 touches per week, he's an every week start. That includes next week against the Dolphins -- fire him up.
