Based on his postseason usage, Michel figures to be an integral part of the Patriots’ game plan on Sunday. The Rams ranked 20th against fantasy running backs this season and given how quickly they can score on offense, New England will likely rely heavily on Michel and James White to move the ball offensively. Given his postseason production, I like the over for several of Michel’s key rushing props.
