2020 Half PPR Rest of Season Rankings

Sony Michel Note

Michel was placed on the COVID-19/Reserve list prior to the Patriots' Week 6 game against the Broncos. It's unclear how much time he'll miss but given that he was already dealing with a quad injury, there's no reason to continue to roster Michel in redraft leagues.

James White Note

White suffered a terrible tragedy when he lost his father in an accident shortly before the Patriots' Week 2 game against Seattle. He'll miss at least Week 3, and it's simply uncertain when he'll return to the team. In PPR leagues, White is still worth rostering, but football is and should be the least of his concerns for now.

Cam Newton Note

Newton has been diagnosed with COVID-19 and has been placed on the reserve/injured list. The primary concerns are with his overall health, of course, but from a fantasy perspective, it seems likely that Newton will miss at least Week 5, too, considering that NFL's stringent protocols. If you are rostering Newton, prepare to use another option for at least the short term.

Damien Harris Note

Harris came of the IR in Week 4 to rumble for 100 yards, and looked every bit the part of the lead back for the Patriots. But Rex Burkhead and James White will factor in, as will Sony Michel once he comes off IR. Roster Harris, and start him as a Flex option for now, but when Cam Newton comes back, it's unlikely that Harris will see much goal-line work, making him a risky weekly play.

Julian Edelman Note

Edelman underwent a precautionary standard knee procedure on October 29th an is expected to miss some time. Edelman was droppable before the injury, and given that his short-term future is doubtful, he can certainly be cut loose in redraft leagues.
