Seahawks | Teammates talk up Christine Michael

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 18:16:34 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael has learned how to use his speed, according to QB Russell Wilson, and FS Earl Thomas said the game has "slowed down" for Michael. C Justin Britt said the "whole building" can see Michael's work ethic and determination.

Fantasy Tip: Michael is having a strong preseason, and it seems increasingly likely he will be given a chance to prove his worth in the regular season. He has loads of potential, and he is worth taking a chance on as a RB4.

Seahawks | Christine Michael plays well again

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 14:59:25 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael rushed for 55 yards on 10 carries in the preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings Thursday, Aug. 18. He has rushed for 99 yards in the first two preseason games and is averaging 5.82 yards per rush.

Fantasy Tip: Michael is making a push for more playing time and could share some of the work with Thomas Rawls this season if he continues to produce. Michael could be a low-end No. 3 or a high-end No. 4 running back for fantasy owners depending on his role.

Seahawks | Bigger role for Christine Michael?

Sun, 14 Aug 2016 21:11:36 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael could be part of a "1-2 punch" with RB Thomas Rawls, according to head coach Pete Carroll, and Carroll praised Michael's consistency.

Fantasy Tip: This isn't the first time Michael has flashed his upside, but he has yet to show he can deliver when it counts. He is an excellent upside pick if you can land him in the later rounds, but don't reach.

Seahawks | Two Seattle backs to split load?

Sat, 13 Aug 2016 19:06:57 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael shined in the preseason opener Saturday, Aug. 13, against the Kansas City Chiefs, and head coach Pete Carroll had interesting comments after the game. He said when RB Thomas Rawls (knee) returns it will be "a little 1-2 punch that we are really excited about."

Fantasy Tip: Rawls has been going very early in fantasy leagues, and is a bona fide RB2 when healthy. If you plan to draft Rawls, however, you will want Michael as a handcuff in the middle rounds just in case.

Seahawks | Christine Michael shines in opener

Sat, 13 Aug 2016 14:52:37 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael continued to build upon what has been a solid camp in preseason action against the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday, Aug. 13, drawing the start and rushing for 44 yards on seven carries.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas Rawls was inactive as the Seahawks continue to take their time with his ankle injury, and Michael operated as the clear starter ahead of Alex Collins. The perpetual fantasy tease has been the subject of glowing reports for his newfound maturity during the offseason, so it appears he a considerable lead over the competition to be Rawls' handcuff. As such, he should make a fine upside pick in the later rounds.

Seahawks | Christine Michael's eyes wide open

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 18:44:17 -0700

Updating previous reports, Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael "had an awakening," according to offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas Rawls, if healthy, figures to see the lion's share of work. Michael could factor in as a later-round back if he carves out enough of a role this preseason. Rawls is in the RB2 mix after showing flashes last season.

Seahawks | Christine Michael has chance to start

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 10:51:36 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael has been working with the first-team offense since training camp started and has a legitimate chance to win the starting running back job. RBs Thomas Rawls and Alex Collins are also candidates for the starting job.

Fantasy Tip: Michael's role with the team likely will depend on how he performs during the preseason games. His value will increase if he wins the starting job and could be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues if he receives a majority of carries. He should still be a No. 3 or No. 4 back if he is the primary backup for the Seahawks.

Seahawks | Pete Carroll praises Christine Michael

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 20:31:20 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael has been "on the money" during training camp, head coach Pete Carroll said Thursday, Aug. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Michael is taking advantage of Thomas Rawls' absence to make a case for having a role in the offense. However, he has never been able to back up his preseason hype with production in the regular season. Unless Rawls is going to miss substantial time, Michael remains a late-round lottery ticket.

Seahawks | Christine Michael emerging as leader

Sun, 31 Jul 2016 13:29:23 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael is "kind of the leader in the (running back) group now", according to offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, who added the third-year veteran has "always been explosive, but he's come a long way (maturity-wise)".

Fantasy Tip: With Thomas Rawls on PUP, Michael is getting first-team reps ahead of C.J. Prosise, Alex Collins, and Zac Brooks. Even though the 25-year-old is not a lock to make the 53-man roster, his lack of maturity and consistency have conspired to keep him from maximizing his vast potential as a pro. If he manages to get those areas in order, he could end up being the best handcuff for Rawls this season.
