Huddle Up: Along with Don Jackson's release, this greatly improves the likelihood rookies Jamaal Williams, Aaron Jones and/or Devante Mays make the roster. Williams has the most value given his size and complementary skill set to that of Ty Montgomery. Think RB4 range.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
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.

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.

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.

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.

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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
