The top backs on my waiver wire right now are Dexter Williams, Dare Ogunbowale, and Gus Edwards. Not sure what kind of leagues you guys play in but Michel is not waiver wire fodder. He's still the sta

Sony Asiata

It really is funny at this point... 2018: Rex-5th round, Michel-8th round, White-11th round (if I remember correctly).  White finished highest in PPR, Michel close behind and better in standard.

Pats WRs banged up so they're starting only 3, and two of them are rookies. The offense will be playing a ton of 11 personnel and some 12 and 21 groupings as well. Brady's elbow on the injury report. Isaiah Wynn is in, Marshall "turnstile" Newhouse is out. Vander Esch is out. Pats want to start establishing a real running game before playoffs.

 

Sony gonna have a big day, I'm calling it.

All good points on the rookies wr but really the concerning part has been the number of touches. Even if they do establish the run game, how do we know it’s Sony and not burkhead getting those touches? 

Im starting to think Dallas loads the box and forces Brady to throw to those rookies.

Don’t think they need to load the box to stop a plodder like Sony. This is no offensive juggernaut Dallas is going up against, don’t see the need to concentrate on stopping a specific part of this offense. JMO

The Pats o-line get a huge boost with Wynn coming back...It will help the pats run game tremendously

It is not saying much, but he's looked his best all season the last few weeks.  Not stats-wise, but eyeball-wise he's definitely been appearing to be quicker / more spry than usual and he even broke a tackle or two.  Lord knows this offense needs a spark...why not from last year's 1st round draft pick?

How are you guys feeling about him this week?  Houston has a middle of the pack run defense, he’s coming off a 20 carry game last week..

Not good, basically like every weeK

He's going to score. Probably twice.

With I. Wynn back the line looked a lot better last week and he was starting to roll. There is no doubt that NE wants to get back to this just like they did end of last year.

I expect a big game from Michel.

We expecting anything out of this guy this weekend?

Hopefully the Patriots look at the tape and realize abandoning the run after the first drive isn't exactly the best strategy.

Sony has looked great the last 3 games and in 2 of those they abandoned the run in the first quarter.  

If Sony gets 20 carries this Sunday there's no doubt he'll be productive but who knows what McDaniels will do.

Can we really count on hoping that BB game plans for giving Michel more runs specifically though?  They ran the ball 27 times against Houston, Michel only getting 10 carries (6 of them on the first drive).  In the game against Dallas they ran the ball 25 times, with Michel getting 20 of them.  It seems like the second KC goes up 17-7 or something, then Michel is going to stop getting opportunities; even if they don't completely abandon the run.

I think majority of us are using him as our RB2 or even flex at this point. When comparing with other RB2 options there is probably risk involved with every player that range. We just gotta pick the player with best match up and upside. My options at rb2 are either Michel hyde or snell all with some risk involved.
