Sony Michel

Michel did not skip a beat in his first game back from a knee injury. Michel had 22 carries for 133 yards and a TD, while adding on 2 receptions for 12 yards. Michel did not even play many snaps (30) but in those snaps he touched the ball 23 times. Putting up the stats he did in a limited amount of snaps is very impressive. He should see the field more often going further. In the fantastic offense Michel plays in, he has potential to win you a fantasy league. Despite a matchup in Week 13 against the Vikings who give up the 4th least amount of rushing yards per game, Michel should be started in all formats.

 

Kenyan Drake

Head coach Adam Gase has also said that Drake will be a non-contact participant all week in practice. Drake followed the same plan leading up to last week’s 27-24 loss to the Colts. Then he ultimately racked up 96 yards and two scores on 13 touches. If he does play, however, Drake is definitely the runner to have in Miami’s backfield. Frank Gore is outplaying Drake in carries per game and in yards per game on the season. Then why play Drake if Gore is getting more touches? Drake has more touchdowns (4), receptions (28), receiving yards (298), and receiving touchdowns (3) than Gore. In addition to that, in 3 career games against Buffalo, Drake has 34 carries for 209 yards and two touchdowns, and he’s added nine receptions for 50 yards. He’s worthy of a flex play come Sunday.

Mike Davis

This is the second straight week Davis logged only four carries, as Chris Carson continues to lead Seattle’s backfield with 16 rushes for 55 yards this past week. Davis can be safely left off fantasy rosters as long as Carson’s healthy. He is fighting for time with Rashaad Penny at this point.

 

Alex Collins

Gus Edwards huge week in Week 11 was no fluke. Edwards had 23 carries in Week 12 with 118 yards. The Ravens are committed to the run and Edwards is their guy. With inexperienced Lamar Jackson at QB, Edwards will play a huge role. So where does this leave Alex Collins? Well, Collins was inactive Week 12 and with Edwards having much success, the Ravens do not seem to be rushing Collins back. When he is back, it is out of the question he even receives 10 touches. He is a very desperate flex play at this point.
