Miami Dolphins RBs Chase Edmonds, Myles Gaskin, Raheem Mostert, Salvon Ahmed and Sony Michel will be involved in a ''creative competition,'' according to assistant head coach/running backs coach Eric Studesville. ''You create a competitive environment and you let those guys go sort it out because that's how it's going to happen,'' Studesville said. ''They're going to sort it out as to who contributes and where and how and how much.''
Huddle Up: This is going to be a tough situation to deal with in your fantasy draft because anyone could wind up winning. On the other side of the coin, any of them could be cut. Edmonds and Gaskin are RB3s, but Mostert has shown game-breaking ability when his body isn't breaking down.

Free-agent RB Sony Michel (Rams) agreed to terms with the Miami Dolphins Monday, May 9, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Michel will be joining a crowded backfield with Chase Edmonds, Raheem Mostert and Myles Gaskins. He will see a handful of touches if makes the team but can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Free-agent RB Sony Michel (Rams) will visit the New Orleans Saints later this week.
Huddle Up: Michel has a chronic knee issue, but he could still be a worthwhile between-the-tackles runner in a timeshare. He carries potential RB3 value in the right spot.

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.
