Week 3: at Detroit Lions

All RB vs DET

FBG says: Great matchup. The Patriots seemed to realize early in Week 2 that Rex Burkhead was miscast as their lead interior runner. Sony Michel took the early-down reins early on, and the first-rounder should handle most of the neutral-script and interior work going forward. Michel's NFL debut was nondescript thanks to game flow and the Jaguars' suffocating front seven. Michel ran hard and with purpose, and better scripts (and matchups) should yield better results. Burkhead still has plenty of value to this backfield as an elusive runner and is more capable on early downs than many think. But he's smallish and somewhat brittle, and he fits best as a change-of-pace guy with versatility. James White doesn't have much of a rushing role here, but his short receiving game is often an extension of the Patriots' run game - and in some situations, it's the dominant facet. The Lions run defense simply can't stop anyone. They've now allowed 11 runners to top 75 yards over their last 18 games, and both opposing lead backs thus far in 2018 have topped 100. In fact, Isaiah Crowell and Matt Breida have averaged an unheard-of 11.43 yards per carry in those matchups. Second-year middle linebacker Jarrad Davis still looks lost on the field, frequently finding himself out of position and struggling to catch up. He was supposed to spark a turnaround for this unit, but has only brought more of the same soft inconsistency. This unit desperately needs a space-eating nose tackle and a linebacker with fundamentals in pursuit. There are few reinforcements in place, and seemingly everyone is taking full advantage.

Latest News

Patriots | Jeremy Hill goes to IR (Mon Sep 10, 05:53 PM) - New England Patriots RB Jeremy Hill (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Sept. 10, according to a source. WRs Chad Hansen and Riley McCarron were waived.

Our View: Hill's season is done just as it was getting started for the Patriots. The team will now move on with Rex Burkhead, Sony Michel and James White in the backfield. Hill was the team's power back, but some of those touches can go to Michel. The rookie first-round pick from Georgia was inactive for Week 1 against the Texans. He's close to returning and might push for the most touches in the backfield because of his all-purpose skill set.

Patriots | Jeremy Hill suffers torn ACL (Mon Sep 10, 03:32 PM) - New England Patriots RB Jeremy Hill (knee) was diagnosed with a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the 2018 season.

Our View: Hill was making plays for the Patriots in a limited role on offense and on special teams. Without him, Rex Burkhead remains as the top back for now. Rookie Sony Michel was inactive against the Texans in Week 1 but he's close to returning from the knee injury that limited him in practice. When Michel returns, the rookie should push Burkhead for that top spot on the depth chart. James White continues as a receiving threat out of the backfield.

Patriots | Jeremy Hill totals five touches (Sun Sep 9, 09:35 PM) - New England Patriots RB Jeremy Hill rushed four times for 25 yards in the Week 1 game against the Houston Texans and he added one catch for six yards.

Patriots | Jeremy Hill will not return (Sun Sep 9, 03:15 PM) - New England Patriots RB Jeremy Hill (knee) suffered a knee injury during the Week 1 game and will not return.

Our View: It didn't look as Hill's leg buckled while he was being tackled. The Patriots have UDFA Ralph Webb on the practice squad and he could get a call-up before next week's game against the Patriots.
