Shark Bites

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 (quad) will play against the Cardinals today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It'll be Michel's 1st action since Week 3. Rapoport says Michel is expected to "split carries" with Damien Harris -- but adds that Harris will remain the "bell cow." Ok then. We still like Harris as a RB2 today and will monitor Michel's role.

The Patriots have activated RB Sony Michel off of injured reserve. He hasn’t appeared in a game since Week 3 due to a quad injury. Michel also spent time on the COVID-19 reserve list. In his absence, Damien Harris has tallied 3 games of 100+ rushing yards. Even if Michel is active for Week 11, he won’t warrant a start in fantasy leagues.

Patriots RB Sony Michel (quad) returned to practice on Thursday. He's eligible to play against the Jets on Monday night, although it's still unclear if he's ready. Michel's return would make it tough to trust rookie RB Damien Harris in fantasy lineups. Stay tuned.

The Patriots have placed RB Sony Michel on IR with his quad injury. He's out for at least the next 3 games but is expected to return "relatively quickly" after that, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Still, Michel is not a must-hold on fantasy rosters. His absence gives Damien Harris -- and perhaps Rex Burkhead -- a shot to take over as New England's lead back.

The Patriots have downgraded RB Sony Michel (quad) to out for tonight's game against the Chiefs. That should leave Rex Burkhead, James White, J.J. Taylor and Damien Harris as the top 4 RBs. It's tough to know how New England will divvy up playing time, especially with Harris yet to play in a game this season. All are in play for various fantasy formats to close out Week 4, though. We'd play Burkhead first among the group for season-long leagues.
