New England Patriots’ running back Sony Michel had surgery on his foot this offseason and may start the year on the PUP list.

Fantasy Impact

While you hope the surgery helped whatever was ailing his foot, it’s not great to hear about as Michel has dealt with his far share of lower body injuries since entering the league. I still view James White as the top back in New England fantasy wise (especially in PPR leagues) but if Michel does miss time, that would give a boost to second year back Damien Harris. It’s early so no real reason to panic quite yet, but certainly news worth noting.
