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. 
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
 Jones lost snaps to Barber last week after blowing an assignment in pass protection. With the Bucs being a pass-heavy team, this is a big deal. Because of this, we do not know if it'll mean limited snaps going forward, but we do know that he will be yanked if he misses another block. This brings unneeded risk to a player that isn't amazing to begin with, so he is a risky flex play with upside this week.
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.That's enough. We've officially lost all faith in being able to predict what Bruce Arians is going to do with the backfield. Don't even try. Arians said Jones was benched for missing a blitz pickup, so it could be just a one-game thing. Fortunately, they don't have another matchup with the Jaguars where we must find someone to start. The Colts are coming off a game in which they allowed Derrick Henry 149 yards and a touchdown on the ground, but don't think that's the norm. That was actually the first time in 28 regular season games under Matt Eberflus that the Colts allowed a 100-yard rusher. You then add in the fact that they've allowed just four rushing touchdowns through 12 games this year, and you have yourself a matchup with a very limited ceiling no matter who the starter is. Opposing running backs have averaged just 25.4 running back touches per game against the Colts, which doesn't bode well for anyone in this backfield, as Dare Ogunbowale always seems destined to take 3-5 touches off the table, leaving the unappealing duo to roughly 20 touches here. During the fantasy playoffs, the last thing you want is instability in your lineup. Jones would still be the favorite for me here, but he's nothing more than a high-end RB4.
