Summary

Far and away the primary back in 2018, Sony Michel would have easily topped 1,000 yards if he had stayed healthy and on the field. Michel missed three games--opening week, as well as Weeks 8 and 9, and his knee was a source of concern all season long. When he's on the field, not in the trainer's room, Michel is a game-changing back, as evidenced during the 2018 postseason, when he ran for 336 yards and six touchdowns over the course of three games. A good runner between the tackles, Michel didn't break off a lot of massive plays, but was good for a few ten-plus yard carries a game. If he can stay healthy, Michel could continue to improve and, behind a solid offensive line, see more breakaway plays. One other place which is a bit underwhelming for Michel is red zone looks. The Patriots did utilize their backs in the red zone, but it was split evenly between Michel and James White, with both notching 43. Not enough red zone looks, plus not a ton of big touchdown runs kept Michel's touchdown total low, and we're not sure we see that changing significantly this year. (May 3)
