As the Patriots’ 2018 first-round pick, Michel accordingly led the New England’s committee with 209 rush attempts in just 13 games. His limited usage as a receiver (11 targets all season) isn’t ideal, but his average of 115 yards and two touchdowns per game in the playoffs proved that Patriots backs can still be fantasy-friendly assets without a major receiving role.

He’s the favorite to lead the backfield in carries again, assuming his history of knee problems doesn’t present additional issues (big assumption). Ian Hartitz
