Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch considering retirement?

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.

Seahawks | Haven't been informed Marshawn Lynch will miss OTAs

Thu, 12 Jun 2014 14:15:44 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has not informed the team of his desire to skip organized team activities. He wants a new contract and may end up telling the team he won't participate.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch remains a target for the bottom half of Round 1, although additional missed time could be cause for concern. Christine Michael continues to impress during OTAs and could eat into Lynch's carries this season, as he appears to be his heir apparent.

Seahawks | OC backtracks on RBBC comments

Tue, 10 Jun 2014 05:52:38 -0700

Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said his "running back by committee" comments last week meant the team would use the approach in OTAs, but not necessarily when the season started.

Fantasy Tip: We still expect Christine Michael to steal some of the workload from Marshawn Lynch. It could be enough to knock him out of first-round value, but he still rates as an RB1 this year.

Seahawks | RB by committee in 2014?

Wed, 04 Jun 2014 21:01:17 -0700

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.

Seahawks | Pete Carroll praises Christine Michael

Thu, 29 May 2014 07:32:49 -0700

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll was complimentary of RB Christine Michael after the back impressed during team workouts, showing burst at the line of scrimmage. "We have very high expectations for him," Carroll said. "He's going to get a ton of work. He's just a million miles ahead of where he was in terms of understanding what we want scheme-wise, pass protection wise, route wise, and we know he's a natural runner. He's got explosive talent and we just want to get him to fit in."

Fantasy Tip: Michael probably won't have a huge weekly workload, despite coach's comments. But he is next in line should anything go wrong for Marshawn Lynch, whose busy workload the last few years may start wearing him down. Michael is a decent late-rounds speculation in deep fantasy football leagues.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll hyped RB Christine Michael, saying he could be the team's biggest breakout candidate in 2014.
