Michel carries notable injury risk into his debut NFL campaign. The medical record starts with a high-school ACL tear. A broken shoulder blade cost him 4 games in 2014 at Georgia, with an ankle sprain claiming another. Then came a forearm fracture in the summer, and an ankle sprain and knee strain in 2017. So Michel sits high among RBs in the 2018 injury-risk rankings. But he also carries big fantasy upside in a Patriots offense that helped Dion Lewis rank 15th among PPR RBs in 2017 and found 18 rushing TDs for LeGarrette Blount the year before.
