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.

Seahawks | Christine Michael drops weight

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 14:14:41 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael said he lost around eight pounds this offseason and feels a little quicker. He currently weighs 217 pounds.

Fantasy Tip: Michael should be the No. 2 running back behind Thomas Rawls this season and could receive a start or two if Rawls is not ready for the regular season. He should be an option in the late rounds of draft and could be a handcuff for Rawls.

Seahawks | More running for Seattle?

Mon, 16 May 2016 14:30:11 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RBs Thomas Rawls, Christine Michael and C.J. Prosise could be called on early and often in 2016, according to WR Doug Baldwin. Baldwin said the Seahawks are going to go back to the run game and not pass as much this season.

Fantasy Tip: Rawls is still recovering from a broken ankle he suffered late last season. It's unclear exactly when Rawls will return, but he is expected to be the lead back when healthy. Rawls is a RB2 candidate assuming he's healthy to start the season, while Prosise provides some sleeper intrigue.

Seahawks | Christine Michael contract details

Sat, 19 Mar 2016 12:46:19 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael's deal is one year in length and worth $725,000. It includes a $675,000 base salary, a $25,000 signing bonus and a $25,000 roster bonus.

Seahawks | Christine Michael re-signs with Seattle

Thu, 17 Mar 2016 11:17:48 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael re-signed an undisclosed deal with the Seahawks Thursday, March 17.

Fantasy Tip: With Marshawn Lynch retired, Seattle's backfield will take on a different look in 2016, but Thomas Rawls is expected to be the Seahawks' primary ball carrier, with Michael mixing in here and there. Michael played in only three games for Seattle last year and had 39 carries for 192 yards with no scores. With Rawls coming off injury, Michael is probably worth a late-round flyer, and he's more attractive in standard-scoring setups.

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.

Seahawks | Trio to split RB workload in Seattle

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 06:00:44 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Bryce Brown and RB Christine Michael are expected to share the early down carries in Week 15 with RB Fred Jackson in on third downs, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Sheil Kapadia.

Fantasy Tip: Honestly, this situation sounds too muddy to rely on anyone against the Cleveland Browns on FantasyScore. Brown or Michael could be shots in the dark in traditional formats. However, if you're in the fantasy playoffs, you're probably not considering such a bold move.

Seahawks | Christine Michael back with Seattle

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 12:38:03 -0800

Free-agent RB Christine Michael (Redskins) was signed to the Seattle Seahawks' active roster Wednesday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Michael won't be available on FantasyScore this week, but he's unlikely to factor into the game plan against the Cleveland Browns anyway. There's a small chance that Michael becomes fantasy relevant at the end of the season anyway, even with Thomas Rawls out for the year and Marshawn Lynch still on the mend.

Tue, 17 Nov 2015 12:35:00 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Christine Michael was released Tuesday, Nov. 17.

Fantasy Tip: The report says Michael was released for playing AND locker room reasons, which makes one wonder if other teams would still be interested in signing Michael. It's hard to imagine Michael being fantasy relevant again this season.

Cowboys | Christine Michael probable for Week 10

Fri, 13 Nov 2015 13:54:51 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Christine Michael (illness) was a full participant in practice Friday, Nov. 13, and he is probable for the Week 10 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Michael ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is currently nothing more than a desperation start in all fantasy formats, including at FantasyScore, and his stash appeal is fading after failing to receive a touch in Week 9. Still, he remains the No. 1 handcuff option to Darren McFadden ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) in yearly leagues.

Cowboys | Christine Michael returns to practice

Thu, 12 Nov 2015 17:11:12 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Christine Michael (illness) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Michael ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is on track to play and probably will be the backup running back again. Michael has not done much in limited playing time this season and should be avoided by owners.

Cowboys | Christine Michael doesn't practice

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 13:38:52 -0800

Dallas Cowboys RB Christine Michael (illness) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Michael ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) should be able to return to practice at some point this week, but Darren McFadden is still the lead back in Dallas, and Michael has done nothing to warrant rostering on FantasyScore. He's avoidable again in Week 10.

Cowboys | Quiet game for Christine Michael

Sun, 25 Oct 2015 18:46:58 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Christine Michael had five carries for 18 yards and one catch for two yards in a 27-20 loss to the New York Giants in Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Rumors of a larger role for Michael ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) appear to have been overblown. Joseph Randle ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) left the game with an injury, and Michael was still used sparingly. Scratch him off the list of potential sleepers at FantasyScore for now.

Cowboys | Joseph Randle still lead back

Thu, 22 Oct 2015 11:42:05 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle will continue to get the bulk of the carries, according to offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. The team wants to get RB Christine Michael involved as well, though.

Fantasy Tip: Darren McFadden ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) remains an intriguing option against the New York Giants with how much they used him in the passing game. Randle ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has struggled and may not be worth the midrange grab on FantasyScore in this committee. Take a wait-and-see approach with Michael ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) until he figures heavily into the gameplan.

Cowboys | Christine Michael may be more involved

Mon, 19 Oct 2015 16:15:59 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Christine Michael is expected to receive more carries in the Week 7 game against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Michael has received only two carries since joining the team but had a bye week to learn the offense. It is not known how the carries will be handed out among the running backs, but Michael could be a flex option in some leagues.

Cowboys | Christine Michael could start

Wed, 14 Oct 2015 06:28:43 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Christine Michael could supplant RB Joseph Randle as the starting running back as the team evaluates the position in the bye week.

Fantasy Tip: Michael should be picked up if you have the room and/or as a Randle handcuff.

Cowboys | Dallas to use RB rotation

Fri, 09 Oct 2015 20:24:29 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle will start the Week 5 game against the New England Patriots in Week 5, with RB Darren McFadden seeing action a couple of series later and then giving way to RB Christine Michael. According to vice president Stephen Jones, the team will go with the hot hand from there.

Fantasy Tip: Randle ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) is likely going to see more touches than McFadden ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) and Michael ($3,000, 6.0% of cap), but it isn't a guarantee. FantasyScore players likely want to steer far clear of this messy and fluid situation.

Cowboys | No plans for Dallas to add RB

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 19:43:14 -0700

Despite the loss of Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (knee) for the season, the team does not plan on bringing in another running back, a source said Tuesday, Oct. 6. RB Christine Michael was added and will serve as the No. 3 tailback behind RBs Joseph Randle and Darren McFadden.

Fantasy Tip: Randle ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) and McFadden ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will see a majority of the reps, but Michael ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will see an increase in workload. Still, your best bet for FantasyScore is Randle.

Cowboys | Christine Michael should play more

Mon, 05 Oct 2015 11:38:51 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Christine Michael will have a role in the offense, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones, with RB Lance Dunbar (knee) possibly out for the rest of the season. Jones also said the Cowboys will see who's available at the running back position.

Fantasy Tip: Michael will still be in the mix with Joseph Randle and Darren McFadden. Dunbar was more of a receiving threat out of the backfield; that's something McFadden might be most capable of taking over.

Cowboys | Christine Michael to see some action?

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 16:21:01 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Christine Michael took repetitions with the first-team offense in practice this week and is being prepared for game-day duty in Week 4 against the New Orleans Saints. The Cowboys are trying to find a way to carry four running backs on their active roster including RBs Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar. Michael spend the first few weeks in Dallas learning the offense while on the scout team. Michael brings size and a physical style to the run game that the other backs on the team do not. He could serve as the hammer with the Saints expected to use plenty of eight- and nine-man fronts with QB Brandon Weeden at the helm.

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys have so many mouths to feed at running back that it seems highly unlikely that Michael ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) would come in immediately and make a huge fantasy impact against the Saints. It's not impossible, though, but he'll remain a deep sleeper on FantasyScore for the time being.

Dallas Cowboys RB Christine Michael will not play Week 2 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Executive vice president Stephen Jones said the Cowboys want to wait and see with Michael. Jones added that Michael is going to get his chance at some point and that he thinks he'll do well.

Fantasy Tip: Don't drop Michael just yet if you have him stashed on your roster. The Cowboys already have decent depth with Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar, so Michael will need to work his way up.

Cowboys | Christine Michael among inactives

Sun, 13 Sep 2015 16:26:19 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Christine Michael is among the inactives for the Week 1 game against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: The newly-acquired Michael isn't quite ready to contribute, so the Pokes will use a combination of Joseph Randle ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) and Darren McFadden ($4,400, 8.8% of cap), with Lance Dunbar ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) as the third-down back.

Cowboys | Starting RB for Dallas undecided

Tue, 08 Sep 2015 21:38:33 -0700

While Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle is listed as the starter on the depth chart released before the Week 1 game against the New York Giants, head coach Jason Garrett and vice president Stephen Jones admitted Tuesday, Sept. 8, that they have not yet decided on a starter. RB Darren McFadden could be the starter, or RB Christine Michael might be the option.

Fantasy Tip: Randle ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) is likely to head up a committee situation with McFadden ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) and Michael ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) lesser FantasyScore options. Lance Dunbar ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is not in the equation for every-down duties.

Cowboys | Christine Michael unlikely to play

Mon, 07 Sep 2015 16:15:42 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Christine Michael is considered a long shot to play in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Michael ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) likely will need a week or two of practice to have a better idea of the offense. Michael probably will see some playing time initially and may not be a great fantasy option.

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael was traded to the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Sept. 6, in exchange for a conditional draft pick, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Fred Jackson probably will see most of the work when Marshawn Lynch is not on the field since the team traded Michael. Jackson likely will not see many snaps during games but could still be a late-round option in deeper leagues.

Sun, 06 Sep 2015 09:44:55 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael was acquired by the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Sept. 6, in exchange for a conditional draft pick, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Michael ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) likely will not see much playing time since he is behind the other running backs the Cowboys have on the roster, so he should not have much fantasy value at this time.
