Sony Michel, New England Patriots at Baltimore Ravens
Normally, Michel is an easy start, a no-brainer despite him never breaking the century mark. But you’ve got to love the volume he’s getting as the Patriots main rusher. But besides Nick Chubb, no rusher has been able to cross over 65 yards against the Ravens this year.
In fact in the last three games, James Conner, Gio Bernard, Joe Mixon and Chris Carson combined for 28.7 total fantasy points. That’s a startling low number for that caliber of backs. Because of the frequency at which the Patriots score, Michel will have his share of red zone touches, but it’s hard to count on him to give you even RB2 numbers in Week 9.
