Seahawks | Christine Michael will be mixed in

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 15:47:31 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael will still rotate in quite a bit in the divisional matchup with the Carolina Panthers Sunday, Jan. 17, even with RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) expected to return, according to head coach Pete Carroll. The Seahawks won't put Lynch through a pre-game test.

Fantasy Tip: Not only is Lynch ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) a big question mark this weekend after having not played since Nov. 15, but his return clouds the value of Michael ($6,300, 12.6% of cap), as well. We all know what Beast Mode can do when healthy, so he's a risk/reward pick this weekend.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch ruled himself out

Mon, 11 Jan 2016 10:23:26 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hernia) ruled himself out for the wild-card game against the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, Jan. 10, because "he just didn't feel like he had it," according to head coach Pete Carroll. Carroll said he has no idea if Lynch will play in the divisional round against the Carolina Panthers. RB Christine Michael had a team-high 70 yards on 21 carries against the Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: There's no guarantee Lynch will play against the Panthers, and you shouldn't count on it at FantasyScore. Michael will once again be the better choice, but he faces a tough matchup and is likely only useful as a contrarian play this weekend.

Seahawks | Christine Michael to start at RB

Sun, 10 Jan 2016 09:01:51 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael will be the starting running back in the NFC wild-card game against the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, Jan. 10. RB Marshawn Lynch (hernia) was ruled out despite being a full participant in practice during the week.

Fantasy Tip: Michael ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) has rushed for 192 yards in three games since re-signing with the club, including 102 yards on 17 carries in last week's game against the Arizona Cardinals. He makes an intriguing option in FantasyScore this week, although the Minnesota defense was tied for the third-fewest rushing touchdowns allowed during the regular season.

Seahawks | Christine Michael posts 100-yard game

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 19:03:34 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael had 17 carries for 102 yards in a 36-6 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Michael has two solid performances and one dud in three games since re-signing with Seattle, and if Marshawn Lynch remains out for the playoffs, Michael will be an intriguing option at FantasyScore.

Seahawks | Christine Michael stifled

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 19:42:14 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael had six carries for six yards and two catches for 14 yards in a 23-17 loss to the St. Louis Rams in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: After a breakout performance the previous week, Michael was an absolute bust. He remains tough to trust at FantasyScore, and be prepared to be disappointed if you take a chance on him in Week 17.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch won't be ready

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 16:17:47 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hernia) is making good progress but will not return to practice this week and won't be ready to play in Week 16 against the St. Louis Rams, according to head coach Pete Carroll. The Seahawks haven't set a timetable for when Lynch might return, and Seattle hopes he can help them in January for the playoffs. RBs Christine Michael and Bryce Brown will continue sharing in the backfield with Lynch out.

Fantasy Tip: It's unlikely that Lynch will play again in the regular season, and Seattle will likely hold him out so that he can be healthy for the playoffs. Michael should be your first target off the waiver wire for championship tilts this week, and both he and Brown could be effective in flex spots on FantasyScore against the Rams.

Seahawks | Two Seattle RBs to work with starters

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 16:15:30 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RBs Christine Michael and Bryce Brown will both receive time with the first-team offense during practice this week, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Fantasy Tip: Michael and Brown both received carries during the team's Week 15 game and had success on the ground. Michael rushed for 84 yards on 16 carries, while Brown rushed for 43 yards on nine carries. Owners should monitor the situation during the week to see if one of the players will receive a majority of the carries. Michael may have a little more value, but both could be decent fantasy options.

Seahawks | Christine Michael more focused

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 18:05:11 -0800

The consensus in the Seattle Seahawks locker room is RB Christine Michael is more focused and serious this time around with the team.

Fantasy Tip: Michael rolled up 84 yards on 16 carries in his first game back with the team. He might be the back to carry the mail down the stretch and into the playoffs due to his familiarity with the system.

Seahawks | Christine Michael finally delivers

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 17:03:43 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael had a team-high 16 carries for 84 yards in a 30-13 win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: It took him bouncing between a few teams and multiple injuries to Seattle's backfield, but Michael finally delivered on the potential he has shown over the course of multiple preseasons. Until Marshawn Lynch returns, Michael should head the Seattle ground attack.

Seahawks | Seattle backfield a mystery

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 16:44:37 -0800

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll admitted that no starting running back has been named for Week 15 against the Cleveland Browns, and that everyone will find out come game time. RBs Bryce Brown, Christine Michael and Fred Jackson will all play in some capacity, and Carroll admitted that Brown and Michael are up to speed on the playbook. Even FB Derrick Coleman could see some work.

Fantasy Tip: Carroll and the Seahawks may go with a hot-hand approach at running back on Sunday once they see who is looking the best in the backfield. That's a huge red flag for fantasy owners, and staying away from the situation entirely is probably your best bet. If you're risking it all, Brown is probably the best gamble. Just remember, we warned you.
