News: 1 day agoMichel ran for 121 yards and one touchdown on 24 carries and caught three passes for eight yards on four targets against Jacksonville on Sunday.

Spin: Darrell Henderson (thigh) sat out, leaving just Michel and undrafted rookie Mekhi Sargent (two carries for five yards) to suit up at running back for the Rams. The Jaguars unsurprisingly stood no chance in this game, and Michel was one of the main beneficiaries as he saw his usage spike upward against the vulnerable defense. That elevated usage was dependent on Henderson's absence, though, so if Henderson can play against Arizona in Week 14 then Michel will likely return to an abbreviated bench role.

ESPN Fantasy Projection: Michel was traded to the Rams after playing only 31% of the Patriots' offensive snaps across three seasons after being selected in the first round of the 2018 draft. Some of that is injury related (including seven missed games in 2020), but it's also a product of scheme (he's a non-factor in passing situations with 40 career targets). Michel has run the ball pretty well and that includes a 5.7 YPC (second best) and 2.4 YAC (third best) on 79 carries in 2020. Despite already reaching 200-plus carries in two seasons, Michel has yet to post a top-30 fantasy campaign due to his lack of targets. The 26-year-old will share work with Darrell Henderson in Los Angeles, but he certainly has a path to a career-high workload in his first contract year. Michel is worth a look in the middle rounds, as he has RB2 upside.
