Dynasty & Redraft: RB Sony Michel, Patriots

The last part about Michel being "safely dropped" is just silly. No one has any idea what will happen with the NE backfield moving forward. They are just guessing that Harris is a HOFer and Michel will be considered a bum in short order. We know Michel can block, which in itself makes him valuable. We have no idea what Harris can or can't do and how the Pats will use him.

I stopped caring about the Pats backfield long ago. It’s very peaceful

If  NE's RB usage patterns give you pause something to consider, not a decision maker as there is a lot to consider here but a reason why I think this is a good landing spot for Michel and not worried

Just heard a 15 minute discussion about this exact issue on the radio. Last year, when Michel was in the game he got the ball 85% of the time. Because of that, teams have been playing 8 in the box. As

Let’s not exaggerate. It’s only been 22.

SONY MICHEL RB, NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

ESPN's Field Yates reports the Patriots placed RB Sony Michel, G Shaq Mason and DE Derek Rivers on the COVID-19 list.

Headlined by Cam Newton, the Patriots have had a mini COVID outbreak for a couple of weeks now. It's confirmed that Michel did test positive, but Mason and Rivers fell in the NFL's new "high risk close contact" category of the COVID-19 list. The NFL has been aware of the situation and still plans to play Week 6 as scheduled.

Sony Michel (quad) returned to practice Thursday.

Michel was designated to return from injured reserve, which unlocks the 21-day window the organization has to activate him on gameday. He would still need to be activated from injured reserve in order to play on Monday night. It's something to monitor ahead of kick-off since Michel's potential availability would ruin Damien Harris' outlook as the latter is essentially being used in the same role.

Patriots activated RB Sony Michel (quad) off injured reserve.

Michel has been practicing with the Patriots the last two weeks. Getting activated suggests he'll return Sunday after missing six games. With Damien Harris going over 100 yards two of the past three weeks, Michel is likely returning to the lesser half of a committee and may be on a snap count. The Patriots waived OL Hjalte Froholdt to make room for Michel.

Patriots RB Sony Michel is active for Week 12 against the Cardinals.

Michel was not on the injury report, but there was a chance he would be healthy scratched. That was the case in Week 11. Michel should not mix in for more than a handful of carries behind new workhorse Damien Harris, but it is wise never to take things for granted in the Patriots' backfield. Michel has zero Week 12 fantasy value even if he ends up hurting Harris'. Inactive for the Patriots are QB Brian Hoyer, RB J.J. Taylor, DE Tashawn Bower, DT Byron Cowart and WR Isaiah Ford.

Sony Michel was held without a touch in the Patriots' Week 12 win over the Cardinals.

Michel has gone from healthy scratch to zero touches since returning from his quad injury two games ago. Progress? The Pats are understandably sticking with Damien Harris on early downs. It's difficult to envision an opening for Michel, but coach Bill Belichick is ever unpredictable with his running backs. Belichick's backfield history still isn't reason enough to pluck Michel from the waiver wire.

Sony Michel rushed seven times for 22 yards in the Patriots' Week 14 loss to the Rams. 

With the Patriots' passing game off the rails, Michel was sprinkled in throughout behind Damien Harris, who turned 11 totes into 50 yards. Harris got shaken up late on a blitz pickup, so perhaps Michel will see increased Week 15 run. We can't imagine that happening if Harris is fully healthy, though. Michel, who turns 26 in February, could have trouble cracking the Patriots' 53-man roster in 2021.

Patriots' Sony Michel: Paces team in carries, rushing

Quote

Michel ran for 74 yards on 10 carries, adding an eight-yard reception during Sunday's 22-12 loss to Miami.

With top back Damien Harris inactive for Week 15 because of an ankle injury, Michel garnered 10 of New England's 13 RB carries. The 2018 first-round draft choice excelled with the opportunity, establishing his second-highest rushing output of the season. Michel's fantasy value has been diminished by the fact that he hasn't scored a touchdown over six appearances since Week 1, but his 7.4 yards-per-carry average from Sunday is nevertheless encouraging heading into a matchup against the Bills' 21st-ranked rush defense.

Sony Michel rushed 10 times for 69 yards in the Patriots' Week 16 loss to the Bills.

Michel's first carry went for 29 yards, and he later ripped off a 21-yarder in the first half. That was about it for him, as Michel paced the Patriots' backfield with Damien Harris (ankle) inactive. Michel is averaging over 5.9 yards per carry on limited reps this season but won't be anything more than a TD-dependent RB3/4 for Week 17 against the Jets.
