Bill Belichick and the New England front office went against their typical mold by using a first-round pick on rookie running back Sony Michel. As a team that rarely uses high draft capital on offensive skill position players, let alone running backs, the Patriots are high on the former Georgia Bulldog.

At 5'11", 215 pounds, Michel has the size and ability to be an every-down back in the NFL, and his pass protection skills were arguably the best of any player in the draft. The problem is that Belichick likes to use a stable of running backs, and Michel struggled with fumbles while in college. Michel also a had procedure to drain fluid from his knee on August 4th which could keep him out of pre-season action. Not the best situation for a rookie. Despite these issues, any RB who receives a sizable share of the New England ground game carries significant fantasy value, as the Patriots scored the second-most points in the NFL last season behind the Saints.

Injury Rex Burkhead activated off IR
Out since Week 3 with neck injury

FFToday's Take: Sony Michel and James White have carved out fantasy-friendly and predictable roles in the New England offense in his absence, but Burkhead's return figures to impact their production and workloads moving forward. He may not see a huge snap count in Week 13 if he even plays, but he may be a low-end option for owners desperate to replace Melvin Gordon. Either way, he is worth adding in all leagues while we find out how he will be used.
