NE RB Sony Michel - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. New York Jets
Sony Michel has reclaimed his early-down role in the wake of Damien Harris's injury, but the Patriots continued offensive struggles have prevented him from doing much in that role and there is little reason to think that trend will suddenly change in Week 17. Michel has received 10 carries in back-to-back games and been efficient with those touches, but he continues to offer nothing in the passing game. On the rare occasion the Patriots get close to the end zone, Cam Newton monopolizes most of the goal line carries, limiting Michel's touchdown upside. While Michel's performance since his return has been promising, the situation does not dictate much fantasy upside in Week 17.
