I dunno, I guess there are two trains of thought here. Belicheck went out of his way to draft this kid in the first round and he has delivered in spades when healthy. If he was still a piece of the RB carousel, I would think that they would have kept Barner and Patterson more involved during the last 7 - 8 weeks. I really think the Pats now have a full time first and second down banger. Add that to the fact Michele caught two balls last week, which I think is huge. Every game Michel has seen 18+ carries, they have won. They're 3 losses were when Michel saw 14 or fewer carries.... I still think Michele will get 20+ carries a game and more targets, allowing the pats to keep Ds on their toes.
But, I own Michele in both my leagues, so I am probably biased, and I rostered Burkhead on both a few weeks ago, just in case because after all, it is the Pats 😋
