  • Dolphins To Create Competitive Environment At RB

    Miami Dolphins associate head coach/running backs coach Eric Studesville said the team wants to "create a competitive environment and you let those guys go sort it out because that's how it's going to happen." "They're going to sort it out as to who contributes and where and how and how much. So that's what you do. You build a group of people great people who want to be smart and are committed to what you're trying to do, and you let them go and showcase what they can do." Chase Edmonds is expected to get the first crack at lead-back duties, but Sony Michel and Raheem Mostert will also be in the picture. Myles Gaskin, last year's starter, also remains on the roster. So if Edmonds isn't performing up to expectations, this could easily become a three-headed committee situation, which would be a nightmare for fantasy managers.

  • Sony Michel Agrees To Deal With Miami

    Free-agent running back Sony Michel agreed to a one-year deal with the Dolphins on Monday. The veteran visited the team last week, and he will now compete with Chase Edmonds, Raheem Mostert, Myles Gaskin, and Salvon Ahmed for playing time. It's conceivable to believe one of those backs will be cut loose ahead of the 2022 campaign. However, even with the crowded backfield, Michel's fantasy value will likely continue to be contingent on his red zone opportunities, an area where he accumulated a considerable portion of his touches last season while with the Los Angeles Rams. Nonetheless, the 27-year-old isn't anticipated to be a week-to-week fantasy option in any format. However, Michel should have some solid outings here and there throughout the year, making him more than just a standard insurance policy.

  • Dolphins To Sign RB Sony Michel

    The Dolphins’ offseason backfield makeover will continue post-draft. They are signing former Patriots first-round pick Sony Michel, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport (on Twitter). It’s a one-year deal, Josina Anderson of USA Today tweets. Michel, who trekked to Miami and New Orleans for visits last week, will join Chase Edmonds and Raheem Mostert in a […]

  • Sony Michel Has Another Visit On The Agenda

    Free-agent running back Sony Michel visited with the Dolphins on Wednesday, a team reportedly interested in acquiring his services. However, Michel's tour won't end there, as he has another stop planned, with a trip to New Orleans next on the itinerary. Last season, the 27-year-old wasn't a consistent producer for fantasy managers, hitting the 100-yard mark just twice throughout 17 games. Yet, Michel was a proven red zone threat in 2021, so the veteran should retain an upside wherever he lands, even if he's a backup. Nonetheless, his fantasy outlook may shine brighter if he signs with the Saints, especially if Alvin Kamara, who was arrested the night before the Pro Bowl on an assault charge, gets suspended heading toward the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Sony Michel Visits With Dolphins On Wednesday

    Free-agent running back Sony Michel paid a visit to the Dolphins on Wednesday. The 2018 first-round pick began his career by spending three seasons with the Patriots. He was then traded to the Rams in August and finished the 2021-22 campaign by rushing for 845 yards and four touchdowns off 208 attempts. Nevertheless, Miami's backfield is undoubtedly crowded with Chase Edmonds, Raheem Mostert, and Myles Gaskin on the roster. However, Michel has proven to be one of the league's most potent backs inside the red zone, so he may still have value in all formats while serving as a qualified insurance policy capable of filling in when an injury occurs.
