  • Michel (knee) rushed 10 times for 34 yards and caught one of two targets for seven more in Sunday's 31-20 loss to Jacksonville. You couldn't handpick a tougher defense for Michel to make his NFL debut against, so it's understandable that he failed to get much going. On the bright side, the rookie first-rounder did end up leading New England in both carries and rushing yards. Receiving back James White got most of the work with the Patriots playing catch-up in the second half, but Michel should be the team's running back of choice when tied or ahead moving forward.

  • Michel (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. As is fellow running back Rex Burkhead (concussion), which means that Michel could potentially be eased into action in his NFL regular-season debut. Once the first-rounder's role in the Patriots offense is established and stabilizes, Michel's playmaking upside should yield enough fantasy dividends to merit weekly lineup consideration.

  • Patriots' Sony Michel: Expected to play Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Michel (knee) is expected to make his NFL debut Sunday against the Jaguars, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Meanwhile, fellow running back Rex Burkhead (concussion) is also expected to play Sunday, but needs to get through pre-game warmups without any setbacks. If both backs play, Michel profiles as a hit-or-miss fantasy option in Week 2, but his playmaking skills should yield fantasy dividends in the long run.

  • Michel (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars after practicing in a limited fashion all week. Meanwhile, Rex Burkhead (concussion) was limited both Thursday and Friday, currently leaving James White and newcomer Kenjon Barner as the team's healthiest backfield options. If cleared in advance of Sunday's contest, we'd expect Burkhead to head the Patriots' Week 2 ground attack, but chances are his status (as well as Michel's) won't be confirmed until shortly before Sunday's 4:25 PM ET kickoff. In the event that Burkhead ends up being scratched and Michel suits up this weekend, there could be some upside in play with the rookie. That said, Michel would still be a speculative Week 2 lineup option, while coming off an injury and squaring off against a nasty defense.

  • Patriots' Sony Michel: Preparing to play
    By RotoWire Staff

    Michel (knee) said Wednesday that he's preparing for Sunday's game against the Jaguars as if he'll be available, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. "I'm doing all I can to prepare, whatever coach's plan is," Michel said, in what were his first comments to the media since early August. "I don't know what his plan is, but my mindset is to prepare as if I'm playing." Michel remains a limited practice participant, but if he does make his season debut Sunday against the Jaguars, it's quite possible he'll have an integral role in the Patriots' game plan. The team's once-crowded backfield no longer includes Mike Gillislee (waived) and Jeremy Hill (injured reserve), making Michel and Rex Burkhead as the only backs on the active roster suitable for short-yardage work. Burkhead, meanwhile, is recovering from a concussion, leaving pass-catching ace James White and newcomer Kenjon Barner as the team's healthiest backs.
