Seahawks | Christine Michael set for 20 carries?

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 20:13:33 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael is "ready for a bigger load" against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3, according to head coach Pete Carroll, and Carroll said Michael is ready to carry the ball "20-something times" in a game.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas Rawls looks unlikely to play, making Michael a strong RB2 with RB1 upside against a 49ers defense that allowed Fozzy Whittaker to run for 100 yards last weekend.

Seahawks | Pete Carroll praises Christine Michael

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 10:06:03 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael has caught the eye of head coach Pete Carroll, who was asked about his star-crossed runner on Monday, Sept. 19. "He looks like he shot out of a cannon. He's really quick. He's just getting going. I think he's really going to get better and more efficient. He had the unfortunate turnover (in Week 2 versus the Los Angeles Rams), but other than that he really hit it really well. He must be averaging five yards a carry or something. First two games, that's pretty good," Carroll said.

Fantasy Tip: Michael is averaging five yards per carry, while the rest of the team's backs have combined for 23 yards on 22 carries. Likewise, the Texas A&M product is averaging 2.32 yards after contact (fourth among 45 qualifying players), while Thomas Rawls is averaging 0.21 (last). Michael is a strong hold in all formats and could potentially move back ahead of Rawls on the depth chart with another strong showing in Week 3 versus the San Francisco 49ers.

Seahawks | Christine Michael will still have role

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 20:07:59 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael will not start in Week 2 against the Los Angeles Rams, as RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) has been tabbed as starter. However, Michael will still have a role doing forward. "I don't think in any way do we need to minimize what (Michael) has done. He's done a phenomenal job, he'll still get opportunity to carry the ball," offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said Wednesday, Sept. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Michael should no longer be considered a fantasy starter, but he is still worth keeping around for depth just in case Rawls has some sort of a setback. Rawls hasn't exactly been the picture of health since taking over as the primary back, so Michael could be back in a featured role sooner rather than later.

Seahawks | Thomas Rawls well behind Michael in snaps

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 14:45:33 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls saw just 22 snaps compared to RB Christine Michael's 52 snaps in Week 1. Rawls is expected to start in Week 2 against the Los Angeles Rams, however.

Fantasy Tip: This has a committee feel to it for the time being, but Michael will limit Rawls' full potential. Rawls is the better option, but don't expect the kind of numbers he was producing late last season after Marshawn Lynch went down. The Rams gave up a nice stat line to Carlos Hyde last week, so don't be afraid to start Rawls as at least a flex this week.

Seahawks | Christine Michael shines in opener

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 22:23:47 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael carried 15 times for a game-high 66 yards in Week 1 against the Miami Dolphins. He split the load with RB Thomas Rawls who was much less effective, carrying for 32 yards on 12 totes.

Fantasy Tip: Michael could see a 50-50 split with Rawls until the latter is 100 percent. If he continues to produce at a high rate the split could continue. For fantasy purposes Michael should be treated as an RB3.

Seahawks | Christine Michael to start Week 1

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 17:31:46 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael will be the starting running back Week 1 with RB Thomas Rawls coming off the bench, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Fantasy Tip: Michael and Rawls likely will share carries since Michael is coming off an impressive preseason and Rawls is coming off a serious knee injury. Rawls could be a No. 2 running back or flex option in most leagues, while Michael can be a solid fantasy option in leagues.

Seahawks | Thomas Rawls listed as the backup

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 21:00:39 -0700

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) is not listed on the injury report for Week 1 against the Miami Dolphins. The team said he will play, and he remains listed as a backup to RB Christine Michael on the depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: Rawls is a risky play across the board in redraft fantasy leagues and in DFS as well. Wait until he is able to regain his starting job and play without any restrictions before trusting him.

Seahawks | Christine Michael ahead of Thomas Rawls

Tue, 06 Sep 2016 13:21:11 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael is listed ahead of RB Thomas Rawls on the Seahawks first unofficial depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: This probably has a lot to do with Rawls' progress from a serious injury and Michael's production during the preseason. Michael may see more action in Week 1, but Rawls is still the better option for the season as a whole. Assuming both play, Michael and Rawls are both startable against the Miami Dolphins this week, but it might be best to wait a week to see how the backfield pans out.

Seahawks | Christine Michael runs well again

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 21:52:41 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael had seven carries for 58 yards against the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Aug. 25, and he has 24 carries for 157 yards in the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: Michael has earned himself a role in the offense with his performance this preseason, and he has RB1 upside if Thomas Rawls loses the starting job for whatever reason. Grab Michael as midrange RB4.

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.
