Sony Michel Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2022

Most Recent Shark Bites

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert indicated last week that the knee he injured in Week 1 of 2021 is almost back to full strength. "Rehab is going great! Close to 100%," he tweeted. Mostert has yet to practice with his new team since signing in March. It doesn't seem like great news from here that his left knee -- which had to have "chipped cartilage" repaired in the area of his meniscus -- isn't yet all the way back. But we never saw a publicized return timeline for the uncommon procedure. We'll see about Mostert's status (and role) come training camp. He'll compete with Chase Edmonds and Sony Michel for touches.

The Dolphins are signing RB Sony Michel to a 1-year, $2.1 million deal, ESPN reports. We don't know the guaranteed portion of that contract yet, but the overall money looks nearly identical to what the team gave Raheem Mostert back in March. The 2 veterans appear headed for a summer battle to see he pairs with Chase Edmonds atop the depth chart. Mostert's recovery from the chipped knee cartilage of last season could factor in. But Miami guaranteed $1 million on the 30-year-old's contract, so the team appears to believe he'll be fine.

Rams RB Cam Akers is expected to have a "limited role" vs. the 49ers today in his 1st game since tearing his Achilles this summer, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Schefter adds that Akers will have "an increased role" in the playoffs. We'll see how Akers looks today and what that means for his postseason volume. But he's not a viable Week 18 fantasy option. RB Sony Michel remains a strong play.

Rams HC Sean McVay said Friday that RB Cam Akers (Achilles) is not likely to play vs. the Ravens this weekend. Akers wasn't a realistic fantasy option this week anyway, but his absence just makes RB Sony Michel an even bigger lock to dominate backfield work. Jake Funk will be Los Angeles' #2 RB.

Rams HC Sean McVay said RB Cam Akers (Achilles) could play vs. the Ravens this weekend. Akers was just designated to return to practice last week after his mid-July Achilles tear. The Rams were originally planning to get Akers back for the playoffs, but they have a need at the position with RB Darrell Henderson headed to IR. We'll see if Akers ends up active on Sunday, but we wouldn't expect him to see more than a few touches. Sony Michel should continue to dominate backfield work.

The Rams believe RB Darrell Henderson suffered a knee sprain in today's win over the Vikings, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "The hope is it’s minor, but he’ll have an MRI on Monday that will tell the full story," Rapoport adds. So we should learn more tomorrow. Henderson, though, is off the fantasy radar now that Sony Michel has taken over as the Rams' feature back.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson was knocked out of Sunday's game vs. the Vikings with a knee injury. That happened on his 1st carry of the game in the 4th quarter. We'll look for an update on Henderson's injury, but this is clearly Sony Michel's backfield right now.

The Rams "plan" to have RB Cam Akers (Achilles) back for the playoffs, GM Les Snead told NFL.com. It'd cap a remarkable recovery from Akers' mid-July Achilles tear. We'd be surprised if Akers had a big role in the playoffs -- but he'd turn Los Angeles' backfield into a 3-man committee alongside Sony Michel and Darrell Henderson.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson has been activated from the COVID list. Assuming he's over the thigh issue that cost him Week 13, he should play vs. the Seahawks on Tuesday night. It's unclear exactly how touches will be divvied between Henderson and RB Sony Michel. Consider both guys risk/reward fantasy plays against Seattle's 31st-ranked RB defense.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson remains on the COVID list as of Saturday morning. He has some extra time to get cleared after his game vs. the Seahawks was moved to Tuesday. We’ll let you know via Shark Bites when he’s cleared, but Henderson will be tough to wait on if he’s not cleared before Sunday’s games kick off. His status also impacts RB Sony Michel’s fantasy value, of course.

This week's Seahawks-Rams game has been moved from Sunday to Tuesday, according to multiple reports, as the Rams deal with a rash of COVID positives. This game won't be on the DFS main slate but will still count for Week 15 in season-long leagues. We'll see if RB Darrell Henderson, WR Odell Beckham and WR Tyler Lockett are able to clear COVID protocols in time for the game.

Update: This game will kick off at 7 pm ET on Tuesday.

The Rams have placed RB Darrell Henderson on the COVID list. That will knock the RB out for Monday night's game against the Cardinals, leaving Sony Michel to lead the backfield for the 2nd straight week. Michel delivered a big rushing performance against Jacksonville last week and becomes a strong fantasy play for the week.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (thigh) remained limited in Friday's practice. We'll see what he does tomorrow and then how he's listed on the final injury report for Monday night's game vs. the Cardinals.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (thigh) was listed as a limited participant in Thursday's practice. He was limited last Friday before being active but not playing a snap in the Jaguars game. Henderson's availability and role in Monday night's game vs. the Cardinals remains uncertain. We'll look for clues over the next few days

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (thigh) is active for today’s game vs. the Jaguars. Fox’s Jay Glazer reported earlier that Henderson would be "available" but not the "feature back." We’ll see exactly how much he ends up playing, but we’re projecting RB Sony Michel to lead the backfield in touches.

Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reports that the Rams expect RB Darrell Henderson (thigh) to be "available" for today's game vs. the Jaguars. Glazer adds, though, that Henderson isn't expected to be the "feature back." It's unclear exactly how much Henderson will play. It's a tough situation to decipher. We're still betting on RB Sony Michel leading the backfield in touches today, making him the better fantasy bet.

The Rams will test RB Darrell Henderson's injured thigh before today's game vs. the Jaguars, but the team is "not optimistic" about his chances of playing, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Henderson got in just a limited practice on Friday, and the Rams shouldn't feel any need to push him in an easily winnable game. We won't get Los Angeles' inactives until a little after 2:30 pm ET, but fantasy owners should assume at this point that Henderson won't play. That'd leave Sony Michel as the Rams' lead back and a RB1 in fantasy lineups. Mekhi Sargent is the only other RB on the roster.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweets that Henderson is "hopeful" to play today but "may not have a full workload." We'll look for further updates.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (thigh) is questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Jaguars. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. HC Sean McVay expressed optimism about Henderson's status early in the week but called him a game-time decision on Friday. Rams-Jags doesn't kick off until 4:05 pm ET on Sunday, but we'll look for an update on Henderson that morning. If he ends up sitting, Sony Michel will be a RB1.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (thigh) missed practice again on Thursday. HC Sean McVay has been optimistic about Henderson's status for this weekend's game vs. the Jaguars, but he shouldn't be considered a lock to play. We'll get another update tomorrow.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (thigh) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Sean McVay said that he expects Henderson to play vs. Jacksonville this weekend, but his status needs to be monitored over the next few days. Backup RB Sony Michel should be stashed in all fantasy leagues.
