Sony Michel's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST TAKE

Assuming reports of a speedy recovery are true Sony Michel is projected to be the #22 RB for the season. This is better than the CBS Fantasy Experts have him (#26). Assuming Rex Burkhead is the odd man out, the other Patriots RBs, rookie Damien Harris and James White are also both meeting or slightly exceeding the Fantasy Experts expectations.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Sony Michel to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 160 projected fantasy points puts him at #20 behind David Montgomery and ahead of Marlon Mack. He has averaged 10.16 fantasy points in his past 13 games, which is slightly more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 10 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#21) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #30 ranked running back. He is slightly overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 99%, he is the #17 most highly owned running back. Sony Michel is expected to improve on last season's #25 fantasy position rank.

SONY MICHEL WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Sony Michel is projected for 9.8 fantasy points in week 1 which ranks him a the #22 projected running back for the week and a starter for most fantasy teams. This is projected to be a slightly below average week with fewer fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Devonta Freeman but behind Tevin Coleman. Week 2 will be better based on projected rank (#13). He is projected for 10.8 fantasy points.

SONY MICHEL IS JUST THE #27 RB ON FANDUEL BUT IS THE #19 HIGHEST PRICED

Below are how he ranks on FanDuel. Look for players with comparable or more fantasy points at a lower or same salary.
