Fantasy Analysis
Week 2 Projections
The Patriots have a way of keeping fantasy owners off balance with their running backs, and last week was no exception. Last week the stage was set for Michel to have a big week, but that did not happen as Rex Burkhead took away plenty of touches. Look for Burkhead to continue to be involved this week, leaving Michel as a middle the road option even against a weak Dolphins defense.
Rushing: 77 Yards, 1 TD.
Receiving: 1 Receptions, 11 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Skill is not an issue with Sony Michel, it's all health. While there has been very little confirmed news related to his knee this off-season, there has been enough smoke to suspect there is some fire going on with his oft-injured legs. Additionally, not only did the Patriots retain their backfield from 2018, but they added rookie Damien Harris to it as well. We think there's every reason to believe the Patriots will ride Michel if he's healthy come January, but we also think there will be some load management this season with all the choices in their backfield.

Rushing: 1058 Yards, 12 TD.
Receiving: 19 Receptions, 159 Yards, 2 TD.
