Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael will handle a bulk of the running back duties during the offseason with RB Marshawn Lynch and RB Robert Turbin (hip) expected to see little playing time prior to the regular season. "This is his time," head coach Pete Carroll said. "So we're going to push him in that regard and try to match up with his expectations. He wants to be a front-line back and he has tremendous talent. We'll see how it goes."
Fantasy Tip: Michael has flashed his upside during the preseason in previous years, but he hasn't seen much action in games that matter. He could be worth snatching up late in keeper leagues, but he won't have any real value in 2015 unless Lynch misses time.

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 09:57:41 -0800
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch continues to ponder if he'll return for another season, and general manager John Schneider said he wouldn't be surprised if Lynch chose to retire. Schneider also said he's confident RBs Robert Turbin and Christine Michael could carry the load if Lynch doesn't return in 2015.
Fantasy Tip: Lynch is a unique fellow, so we wouldn't be very surprised if he hung them up, either. It's unclear when Lynch will make his decision, but if he does come back, he should remain a fairly safe first-round pick, even at his age.

Thu, 12 Jun 2014 17:11:37 -0700
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch told two teammates last season that he could retire if the team won the Super Bowl, and that option is still realistic at this point, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: If Lynch decides to walk away, Robert Turbin and Christine Michael likely would share carries this upcoming season. Michael likely would have more value because of his performance during organized team activities and his potential to be a lead back, but Turbin would also have solid value.

Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said Wednesday, June 4, that the team is impressed by RB Christine Michael during offseason workouts. "We are going to be running back by committee. We really like what Christine Michael is doing right now," Bevell said.
Fantasy Tip: This has to concern potential fantasy owners of Marshawn Lynch, who has been the primary mail carrier in the great Pacific Northwest lately. It will be interesting to see if Michael carries this momentum into training camp and the preseason. If Bevell really means what he says, then Lynch will have to be dropped down a few pegs on draft cheat sheets, with Michael emerging as a sleeper. But it's June, a lot can change in the next three months.

Mon, 20 May 2013 13:53:02 -0700
Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael is expected to battle with RB Robert Turbin for the backup duties to RB Marshawn Lynch this year. Michael is expected to see plenty of action. "He's our kind of runner," general manager John Schneider said this month. "He's a tough, intense, up-field, one-cut guy. A very good football player."
Fantasy Tip: Michael seems to be a perfect fit as Lynch's backup in a zone-blocking scheme, but it's unknown what kind of impact he'll have with Turbin also in the picture. Michael probably won't have much fantasy value unless significant carries open up due to injury.

Seattle Seahawks RB Robert Turbin had five carries for 15 yards in Week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys, and he added two catches for 24 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Turbin was a hot addition to fantasy rosters when it appeared RB Marshawn Lynch might be facing a suspension for off-field issues, and then again when Lynch had back problems heading into Week 1. However, Lynch is fine and appears like he'll escape discipline. At this point, Turbin is only worth rostering as a handcuff for Lynch at this point.
Thu, 06 Sep 2012 07:55:51 -0700
