Depth Chart
To say that Sony Michel suffered a sophomore slump would be an understatement. The former first-round pick out of Georgia managed just 3.7 yards per carry and failed to reach 1000 yards, despite earning 247 rushing attempts. He continues to be a non-factor in the passing game because of James White, and Damien Harris or Lamar Miller could be in line for more carries should Michel continue to negatively regress.

On the positive side, he is just 25 years old, and the addition of the Cam Newton and the threat of QB runs could help open running lanes for Michel. On the negative side, the Patriots added veteran Lamar Miller to the backfield stable, possibly indicating that Michel (foot) may not be ready at the start of the season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Sony Michel headed to IR
Damien Harris expected to replace him
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 5, 6:40 pm

New England Patriots
Backfield roster shuffling for the Patriots: Sony Michel is off to IR after suffering a quad injury, while Damien Harris is being activated to the roster after missing three games due to a hand injury. (ESPN - Field Yates)

FFToday's Take: The timing of Michel's IR stint is curious, but it clears the path for Harris to assume the role of an early-down workhorse. Harris was a training camp standout and was believed to be a real threat to Michel's early-down role, so he'll have at least three weeks to prove it. He may be limited to 10 touches against Kansas City for conditioning reasons, but he could push for more work in Wee 5 against the Broncos leading into the Week 5 bye.


Injury Sony Michel out with quad injury
Limited in practice

New England Patriots
News story: RB Sony Michel (quad) ruled out Monday night vs. Chiefs. The Patriots now have James White, Rex Burkhead, J.J. Taylor ... and possibly Damien Harris at RB tonight. (Mike Reiss on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Michel was limited in practice this week and then missed his press appearance on Thursday. Damien Harris is eligible to play for the first time this season. Rex Burkhead, James White, and J.J. Taylor could also be in the mix for New England's RBBC. White in PPR leagues is the only comfortable fantasy option.


Injury Damien Harris placed on IR
Finger surgery to cost him first three weeks of season
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 7, 7:00 pm

New England Patriots
The Patriots have signed RB J.J. Taylor from their practice squad and placed Damien Harris on IR, per source. Harris will miss at least 3 games. Taylor had a great camp. (ESPN - Field Yates)

FFToday's Take: This move takes the air out of the balloon for one of fantasy's late risers in Harris, who was making a serious play at stealing Sony Michel's early-down role. Both players need to be rostered in most leagues, but this is shaping up to be a backfield to avoid in fantasy after James White for the moment.
