One of the interesting stats I've come across through my offseason research was that rookie running backs who were drafted in the first-round over the last six years finish as a RB1 80 percent of the time. While it's a very small sample size, it just goes to show that when a team invests a first-round pick on a running back, you shouldn't be afraid to roster him. On top of that, he plays for a team that's finished top-three in scoring in every season since 2010. Seriously, that's ridiculous. There are only two things that could get in Michel's way: Fumbles, so please, protect the ball. The other is injury, which no one is immune to. Michel actually needed a small procedure on his knee that knocked him out of training camp for two weeks, so he may be in somewhat of a timeshare to start the season.

Sony Michel sidelined "at least 10 days" following knee procedure

Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston is reporting that rookie RB and first-round draft selection Sony Michel had a procedure to drain fluid from his knee after leaving practice on Wednesday and sitting out Thursday. Reiss added that "those close to the situation don't seem too concerned regarding his availability for the regular season."

Fantasy Impact

This is a pretty minor procedure, and shouldn't be cause for concern regarding Michel's ability to start the season active. However, since Michel is competing for touches with returning players Rex Burkhead and James White, missing time in camp and preseason is notable, and could set him back in terms of fitting in the offense. Don't be surprised if Michel is eased into the offense early in the season, depending on how quickly he is back to full health.
