Draft note
by John Paulsen
Michel had a scope on his troublesome knee after the season, but has been reportedly running at “full tilt” this summer. Michel finished with 209 carries for 931 yards (4.5 YPC) and six scores in 13 games at a rookie, but he has to deal with a crowded backfield that includes James White, Rex Burkhead and third round rookie Damien Harris. The Patriots used a first round pick on Michel, so he’s likely to lead this backfield in carries as long as he’s healthy.

NE RB Sony Michel - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs Kansas City Chiefs
Sony Michel took a backseat to James White against the Texans in Week 13 and saw a season-low 17% snap share. After an opening drive in which Michel ran for 33 yards on five attempts, he saw just five more attempts for the remainder of the game. Fantasy owners who stuck with him should be rewarded, as he faces some soft run defenses over the next few weeks.

Kansas City travels to New England in Week 14 with a run defense that ranks 31st in aFPA to running backs. Given the work-in-progress nature of the Patriots receiving corps, New England is likely to rely on its running backs. If the Patriots defense can slow down the Chiefs' offense effectively, Michel should be in for a heavy workload. Even if Kansas City manages to overcome this defensive matchup, Michel should still be a significant part of the offensive attack and maintain his heavy red zone usage. Michel has an RB3 floor and an RB1 ceiling within his range of outcomes this week.
