New England Patriots running back Sony Michel (foot) isn't a lock to be recovered by Week 1, putting a major question mark beside the back who most expected to lead this New England backfield in rushing attempts. The team signed veteran Lamar Miller as insurance on Monday, further complicating things and suggesting that Michel's injury issues will bleed over to the regular season. You almost have to be more wary of drafting Michel than you already were with this news, and you already should have been fairly low on him. He's not undraftable, but he's become a huge risk without a lot of upside.

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel's (foot) status for the start of the regular season is uncertain at this point.

Fantasy Spin: Michel's uncertain status is probably a ready the team is adding Lamar Miller. Michel likely will be the starting running back when healthy, but the team has used multiple running backs over the last several seasons. Fantasy players can consider Michel as at least a No. 3 running back when healthy.

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (foot) was placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Sunday, Aug. 2, according to a source.

Fantasy Spin: Michel probably will miss some practice time during camp because of his injury but appears to be on track for the start of the regular season. He can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy running back if he is healhy.

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel's (foot) status for the start of training camp is uncertain at this point, according to a source.

Fantasy Spin: Michel is recovering from offseason foot surgery but still has time before the start of the regular season. He will be the starting running back for the Patriots when healthy and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.

Jul 12 12:33pm ET

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (foot) is no longer wearing a walking boot on his surgically repaired foot.

Fantasy Spin: Michel will be ready for training camp and should receive most of the carries this season but will have to share snaps with several other backs. He should be considered at least a No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.

New England Patriots running back Sony Michel (foot) recently underwent surgery and it's unclear if he'll be ready for the beginning of training camp. It was revealed that the surgery was more maintenance-based to help relieve discomfort. Michel was the leading rusher for the Patriots over the last two seasons. He rushed for 912 yards on 247 attempts with seven touchdowns last year in New England. The Pats drafted Damien Harris in the third round during the 2020 NFL Draft. James White seems to always find a way to get himself involved in the offense. The Patriots have depth if Michel is not ready to play by the beginning of the season. His fantasy value could take a slight hit with the added talent in the backfield this offseason.

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (foot) had surgery on his foot in May, according to sources. The surgery was a maintenance-based operation to help relieve discomfort that Michel had been experiencing. It's unknown whether he'll be ready for training camp.

Fantasy Spin: Michel slipped to 3.7 yards per carry last season, and he has dealt with multiple knee injuries. This will be a make-or-break year for him as he enters the fray as a low-end RB2 in fantasy.

Jun 9 9:13pm ET

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel averaged 1.6 yards after contact as a rusher in 2019 - tied for the second-worst mark among qualified rushers.

From TheHuddle

Jun 2 6:33pm ET

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel led all NFL running backs with a touch rate of 63 percent in 2019.

Fantasy Spin: Michel amassed 1,006 yards from scrimmage with seven combined touchdowns on his 259 touches as a sophomore. His usage should rise even higher while supporting Jarrett Stidham or Brian Hoyer rather than Tom Brady in 2020. He should be drafted as a mid-tier RB2.

May 21 11:33pm ET

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel finished second in the league with 82 rushing attempts against defenses with eight or more defenders in the box in 2019, according to ESPN's Matt Bowen.

From TheHuddle

Apr 5 5:13pm ET

In those same contests, Michel compiled six of his 12 catches for the year. In the 13 games Burkhead was active, Michel averaged 14.6 carries for 53 yards and scored only three times.
