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.

Cowboys | Christine Michael cut

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.

Cowboys | Christine Michael won't play

Sat, 19 Sep 2015 12:32:50 -0700

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 | Christine Michael a backup plan

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 10:31:10 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB Christine Michael was acquired as a backup plan due to RB Darren McFadden's injury history and RB Joseph Randle's inexperience, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Michael isn't worth adding unless one of the top two or Lance Dunbar are lost to injury.

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.

Seahawks | Christine Michael traded by Seattle

Sun, 06 Sep 2015 09:48:22 -0700

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.

Seahawks | Christine Michael not being pushed

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 21:46:28 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael appears to be in good shape holding onto the No. 3 running back spot behind RBs Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin. There has been speculation RBs Thomas Rawls and Rod X. Smith might push Michael for the No. 3 job, but head coach Pete Carroll dismissed that. "Well they're just kind of trying to make it, they're just trying to hang right now," Carroll said of Rawls and Smith. "I don't know if they are pushing anybody but pushing themselves right now and just trying to figure it out."

Fantasy Tip: Michael is not someone fantasy owners are going to want to invest in come draft day in most standard fantasy formats, although he could warrant a spot in leagues of 14 or more teams. An injury to Lynch and/or Turbin is needed for Michael to have any meaningful touches and fantasy appeal.

Seahawks | Christine Michael's time to shine?

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 20:09:05 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael will handle a bulk of the running back duties during the offseason with RB Marshawn Lynch and RB Robert Turbin (hip) expected to see little playing time prior to the regular season. "This is his time," head coach Pete Carroll said. "So we're going to push him in that regard and try to match up with his expectations. He wants to be a front-line back and he has tremendous talent. We'll see how it goes."

Fantasy Tip: Michael has flashed his upside during the preseason in previous years, but he hasn't seen much action in games that matter. He could be worth snatching up late in keeper leagues, but he won't have any real value in 2015 unless Lynch misses time.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch retirement still possible

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 09:57:41 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch continues to ponder if he'll return for another season, and general manager John Schneider said he wouldn't be surprised if Lynch chose to retire. Schneider also said he's confident RBs Robert Turbin and Christine Michael could carry the load if Lynch doesn't return in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch is a unique fellow, so we wouldn't be very surprised if he hung them up, either. It's unclear when Lynch will make his decision, but if he does come back, he should remain a fairly safe first-round pick, even at his age.

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 16:48:15 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael, who was active for the first time in Week 7, has only played seven snaps this season.

Fantasy Tip: Michael was being highly touted in the preseason, but things just haven't worked out for him. It'll likely take an injury to Marshawn Lynch or Robert Turbin for Michael to see more action.
