Sony Michel: Ineffective in win

Michel tallied six carries for 11 yards in Sunday's 34-24 win over the Texans. He also caught all three of his targets for 16 yards.

Analysis: Michel only played 17 offensive snaps, combining with Joshua Kelley (14 snaps) to reprieve Austin Ekeler who scored three touchdowns and tallied 100-plus total yards in a dominant performance. Through four games, the veteran is averaging an abysmal 2.6 yards per carry, but he's clearly defined as the between-the-tackles substitute for Ekeler compared to Kelley who has been a bit more flexible as a backup in the Chargers scheme.
