Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael's work this spring has done nothing to dismiss the thought that he will receive regular carries this season.
Fantasy Tip: It's still not known how many he'll receive, but Marshawn Lynch remains the lead back. Lynch is a low-end RB1, and Michael is a RB4 with upside.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch, who averaged 18.8 carries a game last season, is expected to be scaled back some this year. However, he's still expected to receive 15 or 16 carries per game with RB Christine Michael filling in at times.
Fantasy Tip: There were reports the team was going to use a committee at running back, but they seem to be exaggerated right now. Lynch remains a low-end RB1, and Michael is a flex option in good matchups.

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (ankle) attended the team's first day of minicamp Tuesday, June 17, but did not practice because of a sore ankle.
Fantasy Tip: His presence at minicamp should ease any concerns about whether Lynch might be retiring, and he will continue to be the main back in Seattle. He will likely give up some carries to Christine Michael, but Lynch is still a No. 1 fantasy running back.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is expected to participate in the team's three-day minicamp. Lynch will attend the minicamp because he does not want to pay the fine for missing the practices and he believes the team will negotiate with him in good faith on contract changes.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is unlikely to retire this offseason, according to Tennessee Titans SS Jordan Babineaux. Babineaux said Lynch has been working on his training separate from the team. The Seahawks aren't likely to give Lynch an extension because he's already paid like a top-five running back.
Fantasy Tip: We don't see Beast Mode walking away from the game just yet, either. He may be spelled more often this year by Christine Michael, but Lynch remains a clear-cut No. 1 fantasy running back.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch told two teammates last season that he could retire if the team won the Super Bowl, and that option is still realistic at this point, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: If Lynch decides to walk away, Robert Turbin and Christine Michael likely would share carries this upcoming season. Michael likely would have more value because of his performance during organized team activities and his potential to be a lead back, but Turbin would also have solid value.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has not informed the team of his desire to skip organized team activities. He wants a new contract and may end up telling the team he won't participate.
Fantasy Tip: Lynch remains a target for the bottom half of Round 1, although additional missed time could be cause for concern. Christine Michael continues to impress during OTAs and could eat into Lynch's carries this season, as he appears to be his heir apparent.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is expected to skip the team's mandatory minicamp next week, according to sources familiar with the team's thinking. Lynch skipped the team's visit to the White House in May, and reportedly hasn't appeared at any of the team's voluntary organized team activities (OTAs). He is thought to be unhappy with his contact, though it's not clear if that is the only football-related reason the running back is considering skipping or reporting late to minicamp.

Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said his "running back by committee" comments last week meant the team would use the approach in OTAs, but not necessarily when the season started.
Fantasy Tip: We still expect Christine Michael to steal some of the workload from Marshawn Lynch. It could be enough to knock him out of first-round value, but he still rates as an RB1 this year.
Wed, 04 Jun 2014 21:01:17 -0700
Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said Wednesday, June 4, that the team is impressed by RB Christine Michael during offseason workouts. "We are going to be running back by committee. We really like what Christine Michael is doing right now," Bevell said.
Fantasy Tip: This has to concern potential fantasy owners of Marshawn Lynch, who has been the primary mail carrier in the great Pacific Northwest lately. It will be interesting to see if Michael carries this momentum into training camp and the preseason. If Bevell really means what he says, then Lynch will have to be dropped down a few pegs on draft cheat sheets, with Michael emerging as a sleeper. But it's June, a lot can change in the next three months.
