Los Angeles Rams RB Sony Michel rushed 10 times for 46 yards after RB Darrell Henderson (ribs) did not return against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 2.
Huddle Up: If Henderson misses extended time, Michel should offer RB2 potential as a the top back for the Rams. Grab him if he is available in your league.

Los Angeles Rams RB Sony Michel has a good chance to be available for the Week 1 game, but head coach Sean McVay said the team will know more after a few practices.
Huddle Up: Michel probably will be eased into the offense if he is active for Week 1 but should see more work as the season progresses. He may not be a starting option this week but could be option later in the season.

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel was traded to the Los Angeles Rams Wednesday, Aug. 25, in exchange for a 2022 sixth-round draft choice and a 2023 fourth-round draft choice.

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel was acquired by the Los Angeles Rams for two late-round conditional draft picks Wednesday, Aug. 25, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Michel will provide some depth and push Darrell Henderson. It will take some time to get acclimated, and he doesn't offer a lot through the air. Michel could be an RB3 by midseason and is worth stashing.

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel could potentially lose his roster spot to fourth-round rookie Rhamondre Stevenson because the latter is more likely to be a factor on special teams, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel rushed 10 times for 69 yards in Week 16 against the Buffalo Bills and he was not involved in the pass game, targeted zero times.
Huddle Up: Michel averaged a healthy 6.9 yards per tote on the ground, and the Patriots averaged 6.0 yards per attempt. That wasn't the issue in their loss, it was the ugly pass game. Michel and the Patriots will finish up in Week 17 against the New York Jets.

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel rushed 10 times for 74 yards in Week 15 against the Miami Dolphins and he added an eight-yard reception on his only target.
Huddle Up: Michel is healthy and running well again. He missed over two months after his best performance of the season when he had 117 yards against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 3. He'll look to keep finishing on a high note in Week 16 against the Buffalo Bills on Monday.

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel had seven carries for 22 yards against the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday, Dec. 10.
Huddle Up: Michel now has 17 carries for just 57 yards in two games since being activated from IR. He could be in for an expanded role if Damien Harris (back) misses time with a back injury, though, so keep an eye on that as Michel has a chance to be a solid late-season addition for desperate owners.

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel rushed 10 times for 35 yards in Week 13 against the Los Angeles Chargers and he added one reception for 23 yards on his only target.
Huddle Up: Michel was back in action for the first time since Sept. 27, and he filled in for the inactive Rex Burkhead admirably. If he continues to see double-digit touches he is worth using in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 14 against the Rams on Thursday night.

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel is expected to split carries with RB Damien Harris in Week 12's game versus the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Harris is expected to remain the Patriots' bell cow and remains worthy of consideration as an RB2 option in most fantasy leagues, although Michel's presence could reduce the number of offensive snaps he sees. Michel, who is seeing his first game action since Week 3, can be viewed as a flex option in many formats.
