Expert Note
View More Notes

Michel has justifiably fallen out of favor for fantasy owners after yet another sub-par year, and there's little excitement about him this year. He has averaged nearly 16 carries per game in his career, however, and may be asked to carry more of a load now that Tom Brady is no longer under center. But his upside is limited by two roadblocks: the presence of James White, Rex Burkhead, and Damien Harris, and his complete lack of involvement in the passing game. Michel has just 31 targets and 19 receptions over his 29 career games. In standard scoring leagues, there's a chance he may be slightly undervalued, but it would be hard to rely on him as anything more than a bench player in or half- or full-PPR leagues. That's especially true given his foot surgery in May which could impact him early in the season.

Sony Michel (foot) placed on the PUP list

The Patriots placed RB Sony Michel (foot) on the active/PUP list Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Michel is recovering from offseason surgery on his foot and remained a question mark heading into camp. He was placed on the active/PUP list Sunday. There is no timetable for his return and fantasy owners should continue to monitor the situation. Look for RB Damien Harris to see more opportunities with the first-team offense. Michel logged 247 carries for 912 yards and seven touchdowns across 16 games in 2019.
