    Green Bay Packers RB Christine Michael (non-injury) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 30, and is not listed on the Week 17 injury report.

    Huddle Up: Green Bay has committed to using Ty Montgomery as its top back, making Michael expendable in most formats.

  • Posted: 12/18/2016 5:27pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Christine Michael rushed four times for 45 yards in the Week 15 game against the Chicago Bears, including a 42-yard touchdown scamper. He was not targeted in the pass game.

    Huddle Up: Michael had a big play in the offense, and an important one, but Ty Montgomery also posted a career-high in rush yardage with two touchdowns. Michael will likely remain in a backup role heading into Week 16, limiting his fantasy ceiling.

  • Posted: 12/4/2016 6:05pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Christine Michael rushed nine times for 19 yards in the Week 13 game against the Houston Texans. He was not targeted in the pass game.

    Huddle Up: Michael led the team in rush attempts, although he averaged just 2.1 yards per tote. Still, he might have a larger role down the stretch and he could become more productive as he gets more familiarized with the playbook. He is worth a speculative pick-up in fantasy leagues heading into Week 14, but he should not be started just yet.

  • Posted: 12/2/2016 8:17pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Christine Michael 'definitely' needs more touches, according to head coach Mike McCarthy, and McCarthy said there needs to be a better 'flow' in the backfield rotation.

    Huddle Up: Michael had just one carry last week, so it is hard to see him suddenly jumping into a major role. He is merely a stash candidate at this point.

  • Posted: 11/28/2016 9:21pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Christine Michael had just one rush for four yards in the Week 12 game against the Philadelphia Eagles Monday, Nov. 28.

    Huddle Up: One touch is obviously not good, and is proof fantasy owners need to avoid him going down the stretch. As long as James Starks is healthy then Michael is nothing more than a speculative pick in the deepest of leagues.

  • Posted: 11/18/2016 7:15pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Christine Michael said he has already picked up on some aspects of the offense, and offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett said there is a plan in place for Michael to 'get him up to speed.'

    Huddle Up: You won't want to start Michael in Week 11, but he is worth stashing in case he can emerge as the lead back for a Green Bay offense that has been searching for a running game all year.

  • Posted: 11/16/2016 7:11pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Christine Michael is unlikely to get in enough work in practice to make much, if any, impact in the Week 11 game against the Washington Redskins Sunday, Nov. 20, since he will have only a few days to get acclimated with his new team.

    Huddle Up: Michael is worth keeping on a roster if you already owned him, as he could make an impact down the stretch for the Pack. Right now it is James Starks who is expected to see a lion's share of the carries, but Michael could see a meaningful role in the fantasy playoffs if he catches on quickly.

  • Posted: 11/15/2016 2:54pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael was released Tuesday, Nov. 15, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: This is somewhat of a surprise given Michael's early success this season. At the same time, though, the Seahawks have an up-and-coming rookie running back in C.J. Prosise and Thomas Rawls will be returning. Michael's fantasy value likely won't be as high as it was early this season no matter where he plays next, but he won't be the worst waiver wire pickup if dropped for those who lack running back depth.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 10:32pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael (hamstring) was active in the Week 10 game against the New England Patriots, but he was limited to five carries for 22 yards with one grab and four yards.

    Huddle Up: Michael was outshined by C.J. Prosise, who gained 153 total yards from scrimmage. With Thomas Rawls likely to return from injury soon, perhaps in Week 11, and the emergence of Prosise, Michael's days as a fantasy option are coming to a close.

  • Posted: 11/12/2016 11:45pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael (hamstring) is expected to play against the New England Patriots in Week 10, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Michael had been added to the injury report late in the week.

    Huddle Up: Michael being active just muddies the waters of anyone that wanted to jump on C.J. Prosise. The Seahawks haven't run the ball effectively, and New England has the firepower to put Seattle in catch up mode early on. Still, in a week with six teams on Bye, Michael could slot in as your RB3/Flex with the hope that the team actually decides to give him the ball.

  • Posted: 11/11/2016 2:49pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael (hamstring) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 11, and was a late addition to the injury report. He has listed as questionable for Week 10 against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Conspiracy theorists unite. The Seahawks have promised to get C.J. Prosise more involved and Thomas Rawls could return as soon as Week 11, so this is very bad timing for Michael considering he is coming off a one-yard game last week. For this week, however, Prosise could be a high-volume receiver out of the backfield in a game that could force Seattle to play from behind.

  • Posted: 11/7/2016 9:53pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael rushed five times for just one yard in the Week 10 game against the Buffalo Bills Monday, Nov. 7. He did post a 1-yard touchdown in the victory.

    Huddle Up: Michael was bottled up in a game featuring plenty of passing. It was an ugly stat line for Michael, but at least he found the end zone. He is nothing more than a flex option in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 10 at New England.

  • Posted: 10/31/2016 8:11pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael is likely to carry the load again in Week 9 against the Buffalo Bills Monday, Nov. 7, as RB Thomas Rawls (leg) is not expected to be ready yet, head coach Pete Carroll said Monday, Oct. 31.

    Huddle Up: Michael will face the league's 25th-ranked rush defense, as the Bills allow 118.4 yards per game with nine rushing touchdowns. Michael should be considered a RB2 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 9.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 5:56pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael rushed 10 times for 40 yards and a touchdown in the Week 8 game against the New Orleans Saints. He also had a catch for two yards on two targets.

    Huddle Up: Michael continues to carry the load with Thomas Rawls on the shelf and no one else doing anything on the ground to carve into Michael's touches. He is a low-end RB2 in all fantasy leagues in Week 9 against a stingy Buffalo Bills rush defense next Monday night.

  • Posted: 10/26/2016 9:52pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael will meet the New Orleans Saints in Week 8. The Saints have allowed 116.8 yards per game on the ground with an NFL-high 11 rushing touchdowns.

    Huddle Up: Michael will handle the lion's share of the carries in the Seattle backfield again this weekend, and he should pile up triple-digit total yardage from scrimmage with perhaps a visit to the end zone. He is a must-start RB2 in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/2/2016 6:31pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael rushed 18 times for 58 yards in the Week 4 game against the New York Jets and he added five receptions for 32 yards and a touchdown on six targets.

    Huddle Up: With Thomas Rawls sidelined, it was Michael with 23 touches to just four for C.J. Spiller and one for Alex Collins. As long as Rawls is sidelined Michael is a quality RB2 in all fantasy leagues. However, the Seahawks are off in Week 5, so you'll need to go another way until Week 6 when the team returns against Atlanta.

  • Posted: 9/23/2016 8:13pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 9/20/2016 10:06am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 9/14/2016 8:07pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 9/6/2016 1:21pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 8/25/2016 9:52pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 8/19/2016 2:59pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 8/15/2016 9:11am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 8/13/2016 11:51pm ET

    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.'

    Huddle Up: Rawls was believed to be the unquestioned starter but after an impressive camp and preseason opener, it appears Michael has earned his way into a timeshare. The big difference is while Rawls is currently going in Round 4 on average, Michael isn't even being drafted in a majority of 12-team leagues. Expect that to change in the coming weeks.

  • Posted: 8/13/2016 6:36pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: Michael has been drawing rave reviews all camp and that momentum carried over into the preseason opener. Michael has burned fantasy owners in the past but he's apparently matured. Michael is ahead of rookie Alex Collins on the depth chart and the favorite to back up Thomas Rawls, who is coming off a serious ankle injury. Michael is an intriguing late-round fantasy pick.

  • Posted: 8/11/2016 2:33pm ET

    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 rookie Alex Collins are also candidates for the starting job.

    Huddle Up: Another preseason, another round of Michael hype. Not buying it here until we see concistent on-field production.

  • Posted: 6/17/2016 7:56pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: Between stints with the Seahawks and Cowboys, Michael logged a career-most 57 offensive touches last season, but he facing a serious challenge for PT from rookies C.J. Prosise, Alex Collins and Zac Brooks -- even if recovering projected starter Thomas Rawls misses some time early in the season.
