Los Angeles Rams RB Sony Michel's 554 rushing yards since Week 12 were the third-most in the NFL during that stretch.
Huddle Up: Michel logged at least 18 carries in six straight games to close the regular season, and he had five games with more than 70 rushing yards in that span, including a 79-yard performance against the Arizona Cardinals. Expect a similar workload from Michel when the Rams take on Arizona again in the Wild Card game.

Los Angeles Rams RB Sony Michel rushed 19 times for 74 yards and a touchdown and caught three passes for 25 yards in a 20-19 win over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Michel continues to handle a heavy workload as the starter, logging at least 20 touches in five straight games. He has a high floor and RB1 potential heading into the finale.

Los Angeles Rams RB Sony Michel rushed 27 times for 131 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the Minnesota Vikings while adding one reception for four yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: Michel found the end zone for the second time in the past four games, while going for 79 or more rushing yards in each of the four outings. He took advantage of Darrell Henderson Jr's absence to re-establish himself as a solid fantasy option, and Henderson exited this one early yet again. The Rams travel to meet the Baltimore Ravens in Week 17.

Los Angeles Rams RB Sony Michel rushed 18 times for 92 yards and caught both of his targets for 23 yards in a 20-10 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Michel has emerged as the workhorse for the Rams' running attack, and he has logged at least 18 carries in three straight. He is a RB2 with upside in his current role.

Los Angeles Rams RBs Darrell Henderson and Sony Michel will both see playing time in Week 15 against the Seattle Seahawks, but head coach Sean McVay told reporters which one 'gets more' will depend on 'a feel for the flow of the game.' 'We will use them both. Sony has done a great job these last couple (of) weeks. We know how reliable Darrell is. So, both those guys, if they are both up and available, we'll utilize both (of) those guys. As far as the starter, who gets more, it will be a feel for the flow of the game. I look at it as (if) we have two starting running backs,' McVay said.
Huddle Up: Taken at face value, McVay seems to be suggesting it is not a sure thing Henderson will be cleared. With that said, he is expected to play. During Henderson's two-game absence, Michel has logged at least 20 carries in both games and even gave the Rams their first 100-yard rusher of the season in Week 13. Michel should be considered the slight favorite in terms of fantasy production tonight since he should be the healthier one of the two, but it could go either way.

Los Angeles Rams RB Sony Michel rushed 20 times for 79 yards in Week 14 against the Arizona Cardinals and he didn't have a catch while targeted once in the pass game.
Huddle Up: Michel stepped up and stepped in with Darrell Henderson Jr. on the COVID list, and he did a good job rushing for nearly four yards per attempt. It's likely he is back to a reserve role in Week 15 against the Seattle Seahawks, but if Henderson is still not ready, Michel could have some fantasy appeal in standard leagues and DFS.

Los Angeles Rams RB Sony Michel ran 24 times for 121 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, Dec. 5. He caught three of four targets for eight yards.
Huddle Up: While RB Darrell Henderson (thigh) was active, he didn't touch the ball, and Michel commanded the backfield touches. In Week 14, LA plays on Monday night, and this one could result in a guessing game when it comes to making a lineup call.

Los Angeles Rams RB Sony Michel rushed four times for 20 yards in Week 10 against the San Francisco 49ers, and he added two receptions for 11 yards on his only two targets.
Huddle Up: Michel got into the game and saw some added offensive snaps with Darrell Henderson Jr. leaving the game briefly to be evaluated for concussion. Henderson was able to check back in, and Michel saw limited action after that. He is only worth a look in the deepest of fantasy leagues at this point. The Rams are on a bye in Week 11.

Los Angeles Rams RB Sony Michel rushed for 42 yards on nine carries against the Houston Texans in Week 8. He also caught two passes for 14 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Michel has received at least nine carries in three of the last four games but has rushed for at least 50 yards in only one game. He probably can be avoided most weeks as long as Darrell Henderson is healthy.
Posted: 10/25/2021 1:37 am GMT
Los Angeles Rams RB Sony Michel finished with two carries for four yards in a 28-19 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Michel has seen his role in the offense dramatically decrease the last couple of weeks, and it appears he will only be used to spell starter Darrell Henderson. Michel is no more than a handcuff for Henderson owners.
