New England Patriots running back Sony Michel is hoping to get more touches in Week 3 against the Lions. Michel made his NFL debut last week and carried the ball 10 times for 34 yards. The talented rookie has an excellent matchup in Week 3 against a Lions defense that, through two games, has allowed the fifth most fantasy points to opposing runners. But he will have to compete for playing time with Rex Burkhead and James White in a crowded backfield. Michel looked rusty in his first game and could be a few weeks away from truly contributing. There should be better options than the rookie in fantasy for Week 3.
