Sony Michel Recovering From Surgery

New England Patriots running back Sony Michel (foot) recently underwent surgery and it's unclear if he'll be ready for the beginning of training camp. It was revealed that the surgery was more maintenance-based to help relieve discomfort. Michel was the leading rusher for the Patriots over the last two seasons. He rushed for 912 yards on 247 attempts with seven touchdowns last year in New England. The Pats drafted Damien Harris in the third round during the 2020 NFL Draft. James White seems to always find a way to get himself involved in the offense. The Patriots have depth if Michel is not ready to play by the beginning of the season. His fantasy value could take a slight hit with the added talent in the backfield this offseason.

Sony Michel Tallies 70 Total Yards

New England Patriots running back Sony Michel carried the ball 14 times for 61 yards and added nine receiving yards in the team's 20-13 loss to the Titans in the Wild Card Round. Michel averaged 4.4 yards per carry but the Patriots offense, once again, sputtered when it mattered most. It has been a very disappointing season for the second-year running back but had been running with more conviction in the final weeks. Until the Patriots quarterback situation is solved, all of New England's offensive weapons will be tough to project in fantasy for 2020.

Sony Michel Should See Enough Work To Start

New England Patriots running back Sony Michel had a disappointing sophomore season for fantasy owners but will look to redeem himself in the playoffs starting on wild-card weekend against Tennessee. Michel only rushed for 912 yards this year on just 3.7 yards per carry but is trending upwards as the playoffs get underway. Michel out-touched fellow running back Rex Burkhead 60 to 24 over the last three weeks and was a monster in last year's Super Bowl run. James White will handle passing downs for New England, and it's always unpredictable what head coach Bill Belichick will do with his backfield in the postseason, but Michel should see close to 20 touches, making him a fine play against a very average Titans run defense.
