2019 Outlook: Sony Michel

Sony Michel was a good Fantasy running back in 2018, and he was even better in the NFL playoffs. But he might find it hard to replicate that production in 2019, and he should not be drafted before Round 3 in non-PPR leagues and Round 4 in PPR. Michel struggled with a knee injury as a rookie last season, and he missed three games. In the 13 games he appeared in the regular season, he had at least 17 PPR points in five outings. Where Michel really thrived was in the NFL playoffs, and in three games he had 71 carries for 336 yards (4.7 yards per carry) and six touchdowns, as well as one catch for 9 yards. The Patriots still have James White and Rex Burkhead on the roster, and the team spent a third-round pick on rookie running back Damien Harris from Alabama. It could be hard for Michel to get featured work, and he also is dealing with potential knee problems again this offseason. Keep an eye on Michel in training camp, but he could be a bust candidate in 2019.
