Sony Michel, RB (MIA)

Plays second fiddle in win

Michel rushed once for four yards and caught two passes for minus-4 yards during Sunday's 30-27 win over Tampa Bay.

Michel was officially leapfrogged by Cam Akers on Sunday. Akers out-snapped Michel, 58-14, and had 23 more rushing attempts. However, Akers also lost two fumbles, and the second one was with just 2:33 left in regulation. Michel only lost a single fumble all season, so it could be worthwhile to monitor what head coach Sean McVay says about the backfield leading into next week's game against the 49ers.
