FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Sony Michel hits paydirt 3 times as Patriots pound Jets

New England Patriots running back Sony Michel rushed 19 times for 42 yards and 3 touchdowns in a 33-0, Week 7 win over the New York Jets on Monday night.

What It Means:

Michel also lost 8 yards on a reception and dropped his only other target. 2.2 yards per carry is pretty pathetic, but his goal-line work more than made up for it, with touchdowns of 3 yards, 1 yard, and 1 yard. He continues to overcome inefficient production (3.3 YPC this season) by consistently converting on the plethora of scoring opportunities that the Patriots' offense creates for him. He has 60-plus yards and/or a touchdown in every game since the opener. New England hosts a Cleveland Browns team in Week 8 that is yielding the third-most rushing yards per game (154.0).

Michel scored 15.9 FanDuel points on Monday night. He has 390 rushing yards and 6 touchdowns through seven games. The second-year back is the RB13 in numberFire's Week 8 fantasy rankings. He costs $6,500 on FanDuel.
