Seahawks | Christine Michael shines

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael posted 89 yards on 16 carries in the team's preseason opener against the San Diego Chargers Thursday, Aug. 8. He appears to get stronger as the game went on, and head coach Pete Carroll said he wanted to make sure to get Christine into a rhythm. "We weren't going to get frustrated with what happened early, and just keep sticking to it," Carroll said. "He bounced the ball well outside on his long run - had a couple of nice runs. He's got a long way to go, but he ran hard, looked quick and made some guys miss. So I think it's a very good first game for him."

Fantasy Tip: Michael is a rookie worth watching, but he is not worth drafting in most re-draft fantasy leagues unless disaster strikes in Seattle and Marshawn Lynch suffers some sort of a long-term injury. Michael is a nice long-term pick in dynasty formats.
