The New England Patriots are trading running back Sony Michel to the Los Angeles Rams (per Adam Schefter)
Fantasy Impact: This is big news for both teams. For the Rams, Michel comes in to challenge Darrell Henderson for the RB1 job in Cam Akers’ absence. Michel has shown flashes with New England but I actually like his fantasy potential a lot more in LA even with learning a new offense. Meanwhile in New England, Damien Harris is the clear, unquestioned RB1 there and his 6th round ADP is a steal. Rhamondre Stevenson and James White might have some standalone fantasy potential this year, but this backfield is now firmly Harris’.
