Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) is active for today’s game against the Jaguars. The rookie has been practicing for a few weeks now, but it's unclear how big a role he’ll play in his NFL debut. We’d try to not to use Michel in Week 2 fantasy lineups.

Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars after a limited week of practice. His status might depend on whether RB Rex Burkhead (concussion) is cleared for Sunday’s game. We’d try not to use Michel in Week 2 fantasy lineups, but he’d at least carry some upside if he’s active and Burkhead is not.

Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Texans. The rookie has been limited in practice the past couple of weeks and seemingly has a shot to debut in Week 2. But it might be October before we can trust him in fantasy lineups. Rex Burkhead, James White and Jeremy Hill will handle backfield duties for the Pats today.

Patriots RB Sony Michel is not expected to play in today's opener against the Texans, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Michel is officially questionable with his knee issue. His absence would add upside to RB Rex Burkhead for fantasy lineups. We'll see, though, about Burkhead's workload as he deals with his own knee issue.

Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Texans. He was limited in practice all week. Even if he plays, we’re not expecting the rookie to play a big Week 1 role after missing most of August. He’s a strong stash but shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups this week.

Injury Predictor

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.
