NFL Market Share Production

Metric Recommendation: Christine Michael is a fundamental disconnect between the importance of athleticism and production. He was a very unproductive running back at Texas A&M. Who has elite athleticism and all the traits people want at the RB position. But when you can’t prove you can be elite productive at the college level. How are you going to be elite productive in the NFL?

I understand why teams continue to give Michael opportunities. But his profile is one of a player who can become a spot starter. But he has never in the NFL or college football lived up to the hype his fans bestow upon him. He should valued as a backup RB with spot starter upside. However, I would not give up a ton of resources to acquire him, because he is likely to disappoint than truly prove his doubters wrong.
