2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
With six touchdowns in the NFL playoffs and five games of over 110 rushing yards in 2018, Sony Michel lived up to his first-round draft stock and proved to be a vital key in New England's Super Bowl victory over the Rams.

Early projections after the 2018 season ended appeared to have Michel jumping up into high-end RB2 consideration, but those bullish feelings on the second-year back from Georgia flamed out with the news of Michel's offseason knee scope and the Patriots selection of Damien Harris 87th overall in the 2019 NFL draft.

There is always a ton of fantasy value to be found on the Patriots, a team that has finished in the top five in total fantasy production at the running back position in three of the last four years. If Michel is fully recovered from his knee scope, his fourth-round draft ADP is well worth the cost as he will likely be a touchdown scoring machine. However, owners need to consider the addition of Harris and what he could mean to the volume of Michel on the ground.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Rex Burkhead expected to miss Week 6
Sony Michel, James White and Brandon Bolden top NE RBs
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Oct 10, 2:29 pm

New England Patriots
Per @AdamSchefter, Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) is not expected to play tonight. This is the second straight game Burkhead will miss. Sony Michel, James White and Brandon Bolden are the top RBs, with rookie Damien Harris hoping to break through on game-day roster. (Mike Reiss on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Burkhead out, Sony Michel and James White should handle the bulk of running back duties in a weathery game in New England. Michel had 16 carries and 3 receptions against the Raiders in a similar game script last week against the Redskins.


Injury Rex Burkhead downgraded to Out
TE Ben Watson did not travel with the team

New England Patriots
Patriots’ RB Rex Burkhead, and DBs Patrick Chung and Nate Ebner, have been downgraded to our for Sunday’s game at Washington. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Burkhead out, James White and Sony Michel should see the bulk of work against the Redskins. In other Patriots news, TE Ben Watson did not travel with the team and will not play. Matt LaCosse and Ryan Izzo will get the work at tight end.


James White out for Week 3
Personal reasons, birth of child
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 22, 8:30 am

New England Patriots
Patriots’ RB James White is out today vs. Jets, per sources. White’s wife is expected to give birth. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With White leaving the team to be with his wife in the hospital, the Patriots will be down to Sony Michel, Rex Burkhead and perhaps rookie Damien Harris who has been Inactive the first two weeks. Burkhead becomes a viable Flex option in PPR leagues.
