Week 14 Free Agent Focus

Sony Michel, RB, Rams

Blind-bid recommendation: 60-95%

It’s tough to believe, but Michel entered Sunday at only 35% owned in ESPN leagues. He showed why he’s a top-tier handcuff by rushing 24 times for 121 yards and 1 score against Jacksonville. He had several other goal-line scoring chances, but fantasy owners can’t complain about this outing. HC Sean McVay said after the win that although Darrell Henderson (quad) could have played, the team decided to give him extra rest in a blowout win. Even if Henderson returns next week, Michel belongs on fantasy rosters everywhere. His performance is a good reminder to consider adding handcuff-type RBs for the stretch run.
