Expert 
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
 Howard practiced on Wednesday and is a true questionable play for this week. However, he is not a great play even if he is ruled active, with the Giants playing pretty well against the run and being horrible against the pass. With Howard, you would simply hope for touchdowns, with there not being much upside with yards. That is not a situation you want to bank on your your fantasy playoffs, if you don't have to.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Chiefs are 32nd against fantasy running backs, Michel has a great matchup at home against the worst fantasy running back defense in the NFL. 
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Michel faces the league's weakest run defense from a fantasy perspective, but his involvement is a toss up as a member of the Patriots backfield. We're considering him a decent RB2, but just know that his range of outcomes is very wide. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's shocking to see the results of Michel in PPR formats, as he's finished outside the top-36 running backs in 7-of-12 games. When you play for a high-scoring team, that's not supposed to happen. Meanwhile, White has finished outside the top-24 options just twice all year. Against the Chiefs, opportunity typically means fantasy points. They've allowed 0.96 PPR points per opportunity to running backs, which ranks as the fifth-highest mark in the league. They've allowed an average of 184.7 total yards per game to running backs, which is easily the most in the NFL (closest is the Dolphins at 166.7). Their opponents have averaged a rather-high 65.9 plays per game and that's allowed the touches to pile up, as running backs have received 29.8 touches per game. Going back to their playoff game last year, Michel tore them apart, rushing for 113 yards and two touchdowns. Even Rex Burkhead got in on the action and rushed for 41 yards and two touchdowns. Belichick will attack the run defense that's allowed 5.08 yards per carry on the season. Michel has been a disappointment but he should be in lineups as a high-end RB3 with some major upside in this matchup.
