The Los Angeles Rams had no problem getting around the Chicago Bears in their first game of the season. Sony running back Michel, however, didn’t play a big part in the game, raising the question of how much work he will have to do and whether or not it will be a viable fantasy option. It doesn’t look like the week for this to happen.
Michel got a rushing attempt for two yards last week, and this game in the fourth quarter with the game in hand for the Rams. As a new addition – they traded for him with less than a week to go in the preseason – Michel is still learning the offense. It takes time. And with Darrell Henderson playing so far ahead of him on the Depths board, there’s no reason the Rams rush things.
The Rams are on the road to face the Indianapolis Colts this week. Michel will end up having his turn in the team’s backfield, but I wouldn’t bet that happens this week.
Fantasy Start / Sit Recommendation
Sit down Sony Michel.
