  • Chargers' Sony Michel: Ineffective in win

    Michel tallied six carries for 11 yards in Sunday's 34-24 win over the Texans. He also caught all three of his targets for 16 yards. Michel only played 17 offensive snaps, combining with Joshua Kelley (14 snaps) to reprieve Austin Ekeler, who scored three touchdowns and tallied 100-plus total yards in a dominant performance. Through four games, Michel is averaging an abysmal 2.6 yards per carry, but he's clearly defined as the between-the-tackles substitute for Ekeler compared to Kelley, who has been a bit more flexible as a backup in the Chargers' scheme.

  • Chargers' Sony Michel: Leads team in rushing

    Michel tallied five carries for 22 yards and also caught one of his two targets for nine yards in Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Jaguars. Michel actually led the team in rushing yards as Austin Ekeler (four carries, five yards) was completely kept in check, but with the score quickly spiraling out of control, the Chargers completely abandoned the run early in the contest. Joshua Kelley (one carry, negative three yards) had been the nominal No. 2 running back in the previous two weeks, but it's possible any sort of normal rotation was eschewed given the lopsided score.

  • Chargers' Sony Michel: Garners five touches in loss

    Michel carried the ball four times for 13 yards in Thursday's 27-24 loss to the Chiefs. He also corralled his only target for six yards. Michel only played nine offensive snaps total, which makes his usage all the more surprising. The veteran tailback is currently embroiled in a time split with Joshua Kelley for the backup role behind starter Austin Ekeler. It's possible Isaiah Spiller could also get into the mix as the season progresses, although the rookie fourth-round pick has been a healthy scratch in each of the first two weeks.

  • Chargers' Sony Michel: Does little in win

    Michel tallied seven carries for 12 yards in Sunday's 24-19 win over the Raiders on Sunday. Michel split playing time with Joshua Kelley almost evenly as the incumbent saw 18 snaps compared to the veteran's 16, but it was Michel who drew the most carries. Kelley did see more work as a receiver (two targets), but it's possible with more time learning the Chargers' pass blocking schemes Michel could eventually usurp that role, too.

  • Chargers' Sony Michel: No. 3 running back Sunday

    Michel is slated to work as the Chargers' No. 3 running back behind Austin Ekeler and Joshua Kelley for Sunday's Week 1 clash against the Raiders after rookie Isaiah Spiller was deemed a healthy scratch for the contest, per Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times. The veteran just signed with Los Angeles on Aug. 31, but the Chargers will turn to Michel over Spiller, who missed time with an ankle injury in recent weeks, to open the campaign. Michel's role could be very limited anyhow considering the expected workload Ekeler, and to a lesser extent, Kelley, will likely shoulder.

  • Chargers' Sony Michel: Stashes (RB Preview)

    If someone is going to give Austin Ekeler a breather on early downs, I would expect it to be Michel. I also believe he's the best handcuff in a situation that is murky at best. Any running back would be must-start if they were getting 15 touches in this offense.

  • Chargers' Sony Michel: Signing on with Bolts

    Michel signed with the Chargers on Wednesday. The Chargers seemingly aren't enthused with backup running backs Joshua Kelley and Isaiah Spiller, so Michel was brought aboard to add some competition for carries behind lead option Austin Ekeler. In Los Angeles, Michel wouldn't have to do much more than the between-the-tackles running for which he's best suited, though it's not clear the 27-year-old would be much better at that task than Kelley or Spiller.

  • Sony Michel: Set to visit Chargers

    Michel will meet with the Chargers on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. After being let go by the Dolphins on Monday, Michel could find his next team in short order. If he signs with the Chargers, the 27-year-old would find himself in the backup mix behind Austin Ekeler. The Chargers' other depth options in the backfield include Joshua Kelley, Isaiah Spiller and Larry Rountree.

  • Sony Michel: Odd man out in Miami backfield

    The Dolphins released Michel on Monday. In a crowded Miami backfield that included four other veteran options in Chase Edmonds, Raheem Mostert, Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed, Michel was unable to distinguish himself enough in training camp and the preseason to stick around in a depth role. Michel's lack of polish as a pass catcher and his inability to contribute on special teams likely worked against him in his battle for a roster spot with Miami, but another team could view the 27-year-old as an ideal sub off the bench in short-yardage situations.

  • Dolphins' Sony Michel: Second running back in Saturday

    Michel rushed two times for no gain in the Dolphins' 15-13 preseason loss to the Raiders on Saturday night. Michel took over for Chase Edmonds during the Dolphins' second drive of the game, but as his final line implies, he had minimal impact. Meanwhile, his primary competition for the No. 3 running back role, incumbent Myles Gaskin, logged five touches overall but gained just 12 yards. Consequently, the job battle, which arguably also includes Salvon Ahmed, appears set to extend into next Saturday night's exhibition finale against the Eagles.

  • Dolphins' Sony Michel: Minimal action in preseason opener

    Michel rushed twice for minus-2 yards and secured his only target for four yards in the Dolphins' 26-24 preseason win over the Buccaneers on Saturday night. The veteran opened the game with Chase Edmonds and Raheem Mostert both sitting out the contest, but Michel had minimal impact, as his final numbers corroborate. On the one hand, the 27-year-old has little to prove in the preseason in terms of his ability to produce at the NFL level, but he's also in a legitimate battle with Myles Gaskin, who carried four times for 27 yards, for a depth back role. The battle between the two players will continue to unfold in next Saturday night's exhibition matchup against the Raiders.

  • Dolphins' Sony Michel: Listed as backup for now

    Michel and Myles Gaskin are listed as backups on the Dolphins' initial preseason depth chart, while Chase Edmonds and Raheem Mostert are both listed as starters, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports. Michel has proven himself capable of carrying a backfield load when necessary, and he averaged a healthy 4.1 YPC through 17 games with the Rams last season, rushing for 845 yards and four touchdowns while securing 21 passes for 128 yards and one score. Through the early stages of training camp it appears that Edmonds and Mostert are the early favorites to headline Miami's revamped rushing attack, but considering coach Mike McDaniel comes from Kyle Shanahan's coaching tree in San Francisco, it wouldn't be surprising to see multiple backs be featured throughout the 2022 campaign. Even if Michel begins the season in a depth role, he can thus be considered a high-upside handcuff in fantasy leagues with deep rosters, as long as he beats out Gaskin for at least the No. 3 gig.

  • Dolphins' Sony Michel: Inks deal with Miami

    Michel signed a contract with the Dolphins on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The veteran running back will bring depth to a backfield that already includes Chase Edmonds, Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed. Michel appeared in 17 games a season ago with the Rams, rushing for 845 yards and four scores while hauling in 21 passes for 128 yards and one touchdown.

  • Sony Michel: Draws post-draft interest

    Michel, who visited the Dolphins on Wednesday, is also in line to visit the Saints, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports. The chances of Michel returning to the Rams and rejoining a backfield that also includes Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson seemingly took a hit with the team's fifth-round selection of Kyren Williams in the recent NFL Draft. This past season, Michel carried 208 times for 845 yards and four TDs while adding 21 catches for a 128 yards a receiving score, but the volume he logged in 2021 was largely the result of Akers missing most of the season with an Achilles' injury. If Michel signs with either Miami or New Orleans, he'd likely work in a complementary role, with the Dolphins already rostering Chase Edmonds and Raheem Mostert and the Saints' rushing attack still led by Alvin Kamara.

  • Rams' Sony Michel: Inefficient in conference title win

    Michel rushed 10 times for 16 yards and brought in one of two targets for minus-4 yards during the Rams' 20-17 win over the 49ers in their NFC Championship Game matchup Sunday. Michel carried just three times fewer than backfield mate Cam Akers, but he gained 32 less yards as well while averaging just 1.6 per carry. The fourth-year veteran saw a bit of a bump in workload due to Akers' in-game shoulder injury, but the latter was able to return to the contest and appears to be okay moving forward. That likely equates to another relatively modest complementary role for Michel in the Super Bowl LVI matchup against the Bengals on Sunday, Feb. 13, but his prior experience playing for the Lombardi Trophy while with the Patriots potentially could earn him some decent volume in the contest.

  • Rams' Sony Michel: Plays second fiddle in win

    Michel rushed once for four yards and caught two passes for minus-4 yards during Sunday's 30-27 win over Tampa Bay. Michel was officially leapfrogged by Cam Akers on Sunday. Akers out-snapped Michel, 58-14, and had 23 more rushing attempts. However, Akers also lost two fumbles, and the second one was with just 2:33 left in regulation. Michel only lost a single fumble all season, so it could be worthwhile to monitor what head coach Sean McVay says about the backfield leading into next week's game against the 49ers.

  • Rams' Sony Michel: Splits backfield workload

    Michel rushed 13 times for 58 yards in Monday night's 34-11 wild-card round win over the Cardinals. Michel ripped off a 35-yard run on Los Angeles' first offensive play, setting the tone for a dominating performance from the Rams. Overall though, Michel didn't get much going with his other handoffs. While he still led the team in rushing yards, Cam Akers topped him with 17 carries, gaining 55 yards. Akers also caught a 40-yard pass from Odell Beckham, putting together a more complete performance than Michel. With the Rams comfortable rotating between Michel and Akers, however, look for both to remain consistently involved versus the Buccaneers in Sunday's NFC divisional-round game.

  • Rams' Sony Michel: Bottled up on 22 touches

    Michel rushed 21 times for 43 yards and caught one of four targets for six more yards in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the 49ers. Michel's recent string of strong play came to a screeching halt, as he was barely able to move the rock against a stout 49ers front seven. The veteran power back still dominated the backfield touches (22 out of 30 potential RB touches) despite the return of Cam Akers (Achilles), although the latter was expected to be eased into action this week. Michel may see his workhorse role on offense erode with the versatile Akers back in the fold, beginning with next week's wild-card matchup against the Cardinals. A potential timeshare limits the veteran's value, but he should still remain involved in early-down work while getting first crack at goal-line rushing attempts.

  • Rams' Sony Michel: Staying in lead role for now

    The Rams plan to keep leaning heavily on Michel down the stretch run of the season, Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. That may have been the plan all along after Michel averaged a robust 4.8 yards per carry on 89 rushing attempts over the past four weeks, though Darrell Henderson's (knee) move to injured reserve this week makes the Rams' intentions even more clear. The Rams are now left with Jake Funk and special teamer Buddy Howell as their healthy backup options, and Cam Akers (Achilles) will also be in the mix at some point whenever he's ready to play. While Akers could be a bigger part of the offense in the playoffs, he shouldn't take too much work from Michel in his first game back from a severe injury, whether that happens Week 17, Week 18 or at some point during the postseason.
