There is, of course, risk in drafting a New England running back, but do you really think Ole' Bill would have drafted one in the first round if he didn't intend on running him to death? Dion Lewis is gone and Michel expects to fill the void that made Lewis an RB1 last season. There is huge upside here if Michel does, in fact, land that type of role.

Sony Michel lands with the Patriots at No. 31

With the 31st pick in the NFL Draft, the Patriots have selected Georgia running back Sony Michel.

Fantasy Impact

Whew. If you're looking for the best landing spot among the running backs selected in the first-round, look no further than Michel. He's walking onto what is likely a top-five scoring offense without a true No. 1 wide receiver. Michel is a true three-down back who can pass-block with the best of them, so expect him to be heavily utilized in the old Dion Lewis role. You don't take a running back in the first-round if you don't plan on giving him a lot of work, so as of right now, we'd confidently approach Michel as a low-end RB2 in fantasy drafts.
