Week 6: vs Kansas City Chiefs

All RB vs KC

FBG says: Good matchup. Sony Michel has clearly arrived as the Patriots' lead back. In fact, last Thursday, the back-heavy Patriots only dressed Michel and passing-down specialist James White against the Colts. The rookie has certainly earned the nod, racking up 210 yards on 43 carries (4.88 per) over his first 2 games in the lead role. Michel is a gifted runner, capable of winning with both power and elusiveness, and he brings breakaway speed to the table as well. Just as importantly, the retooled line is coming together nicely. The interior, in particular, anchored by guards Joe Thuney and Shaq Mason, has come on in the power run game. On Thursday, Mason sprung Michel's long, clinching touchdown run with a devastating pull block right in the crease. All told, this attack has the makings of what the Patriots always wanted in the LeGarrette Blount era - a grinding, powerful, fall-forward runner able to wear out defenses and capitalize with chunk runs. Few arrows are pointing straighter upward than Michel's is right now. Kansas City's run defense remains one of the league's weaker and more fantasy-friendly matchups. Through their 5 games, they've allowed running backs to rack up 487 yards on 88 rushes, a devastating 5.53 per attempt, and 5 have run for 67 or more individually. The front line is too often washed away, leaving open lanes onto the second level, where inside linebackers Anthony Hitchens and Reggie Ragland are struggling. Hitchens has disappointed after leveraging a great 2017 into a massive Kansas City deal, while Ragland has always lacked in athleticism and pursuit skills. Missed tackles have been a big issue for this unit thus far, suggesting that a well-blocked attack like New England's could continue to spring chunk runs all day.
