View RB Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Michel was traded from New England to L.A. last August. He helped fill the void left by Cam Akers (Achilles’ tear).
  • Appearing in all 17 games, Michel tallied 845 yards and 4 scores on 208 attempts.
  • Following a slow start, Michel saw workhorse touches down the stretch. From Week 13 to Week 18, he saw 20+ opportunities in each matchup.
  • Michel ranked mid-pack in PFF Elusive Rating, PFF rushing grade and yards after contact per attempt.
  • He finished as an RB1 twice (vs. Jacksonville and at Minnesota).
  • Michel, 27, signed a 1-year deal with Miami post-draft. He’ll earn ~$1.75 million.
  • He joined a club that already has Chase Edmonds, Raheem Mostert and Myles Gaskin.
  • The presence of Edmonds, a top receiving back, means Michel will need to carve out a low-value ball-carrying role.
  • Miami’s offense at least looks poised for a scoring boost — especially with the arrival of HC Mike McDaniel and Tyreek Hill. The Fins popped in only 7 team RB rushing TDs last year.
  • The Fins’ O-line looks improved as well. LT Terron Armstead and OG Connor Williams arrived in free agency to bolster a unit that really struggled in ‘21.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

A deep and talented Miami backfield shows that HC Mike McDaniel values the run game.

The math just doesn’t work out in Michel’s favor. Miami paid up for Chase Edmonds, while Raheem Mostert followed McDaniel from San Francisco.

Michel’s never been a big-time pass catcher, and Miami has a superior receiving back in Edmonds.

Mostert’s shaky durability adds some upside to Michel. But for now, the 27-year-old is just a late-round stash.

Austin Ekeler, RB LAC

8:35pm EDT 9/26/22

Ekeler gets scant ground use

Chargers RB Austin Ekeler logged just 4 carries for 5 yards in Sunday's lopsided loss to the Jaguars. The score might have been a factor in the 2nd half, but Ekeler carried just twice through the entire 1st half of a game that stood at 16-10 early in the 3rd quarter. Ekeler did lead the Chargers with 8 receptions (for 48 yards) to salvage some PPR value. But he was splitting opportunities with Sony Michel early in the game. Ekeler wound up running 26 routes to 13 combined for Michel and Joshua Kelley, but that pair played just 7 fewer snaps overall. Ekeler ranks just 25th in the league in carries through 3 games, with Ezekiel Elliot close enough to pass him Monday night. Ekeler ranked 16th in the league in rushing attempts last season; 20th in carries per game.

Chargers RB Isaiah Spiller is a healthy scratch for today's opener vs. the Raiders. It'll be RBs Sony Michel and Joshua Kelley behind Austin Ekeler.

View all Isaiah Spiller Shark Bites »

The Chargers list Sony Michel and Joshua Kelley as co-#2 RBs on their Week 1 depth chart. It feels notable that Michel has already climbed that high just a week after joining the Chargers. Rookie RB Isaiah Spiller remains 4th on the depth chart. We'll have a better feel for what this backfield looks like behind Austin Ekeler after Week 1, but Michel looks like the Chargers RB to target in remaining fantasy drafts behind Ekeler.
