Seahawks | Christine Michael expected to compete for backup role

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael is expected to battle with RB Robert Turbin for the backup duties to RB Marshawn Lynch this year. Michael is expected to see plenty of action. "He's our kind of runner," general manager John Schneider said this month. "He's a tough, intense, up-field, one-cut guy. A very good football player."

Fantasy Tip: Michael seems to be a perfect fit as Lynch's backup in a zone-blocking scheme, but it's unknown what kind of impact he'll have with Turbin also in the picture. Michael probably won't have much fantasy value unless significant carries open up due to injury.
