Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) is active for today’s game against the Titans. It’ll be his 1st action since Week 7, which adds some risk to his outlook. But Michel racked up 316 yards and 4 TDs on 67 carries in his last 3 healthy games, so there’s clearly RB1 upside here.

The Patriots expect RB Sony Michel to return for today's game against the Titans, according to multiple reports. He missed the past 2 weeks with an ankle injury. We'll see if WR Cordarrelle Patterson has worked his way into a larger share of rushing duties going forward, but you'll find Michel inside starter range in our Week 10 RB rankings.

Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Titans. It’s the same boat he was in last week before ending up inactive. But ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Monday that Michel is "likely" to return this week. We'll find out for sure by noon ET on Sunday. The rookie will be a risk/reward RB2 if active.

Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He was limited all last week, too, so this doesn't tell us much. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier this week, though, that Michel is "likely" to return for Sunday's game against the Titans. We'll see if he's able to get in a full workout Thursday or Friday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) is "likely" to return for Sunday's game against the Titans. "Just needs a good week of practice with no setbacks, but on track," Schefter adds. We'll keep an eye on Michel's practice participation this week. Once healthy, he'll step back in as New England's lead ball-carrier and be a borderline RB1 in fantasy lineups.

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.
