by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Seahawks running backs Robert Turbin showed some flashes of dominance during Friday's preseason game against the Chargers.

Even with Marshawn Lynch getting the starting nod, the backup running back saw plenty work with the first-team offense on the opening drive and scored on a 1-yard run. Thanks to a massive stiffarm, Turbin ripped a 47-yard run on the second series on offense. He took 12 handoffs for 81 yards and a touchdown, averaging 6.8 yards per attempt.

Robert Turbin, Christine Michael shoulder the load in preseason opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) With Marshawn Lynch sidelined, Seahawks running backs Robert Turbin and Christine Michael shouldered the load during Thursday's preseason opener against the Broncos in Denver.

Turbin got the start but didn't make much of an impact. He played two series with the first-team offense and finished with four carries for 5 yards. He also caught one pass for a gain of 3 yards.

Michael didn't get his first touch with the first-team offense until the start of the second quarter and scored on a 1-yard run on that same drive. He played into the first series of the third quarter and finished with seven carries for 16 yards and a touchdown. He also caught three passes for 12 yards.

Seahawks won't change philosphy if Marshawn Lynch doesn't show


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said the team won't change its run-first philosophy, regardless of how long Marshawn Lynch's holdout lasts. Seattle ran the ball a league-high 54.8 percent of the time last year.

"I think our plan has been pretty successful," Bevell told the Seattle Times. "We play great defense, we take great care of the football and we run the football, and that keeps us in games and allows us to exert our will on the opponent, that physical toughness that we like to do ... That’s our style and our philosophy and we are going to continue to do that."

Lynch's contract holdout isn't expected to last too long. In the meantime, Christine Michael and Robert Turbin are the team's top two backs.


Seahawks coordinator backtracks on committee comment


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2014) Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, who raised eyebrows by saying the team planned a committee approach at running back, backtracked from that comment. According to the Everett Herald, Bevell said he meant he'd use a committee approach during OTAs, not the season.

Marshawn Lynch still should see the bulk of the carries, but the explosive Christine Michael is headed for a bigger role. Robert Turbin will see some work on passing downs.


Marshawn Lynch still on top of committee


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/9/2014) Even though Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell recently said the team plans to use a "running back by committee" with Marshawn Lynch, Christine Michael and Robert Turbin, there is still one leader in the backfield.

And that's Lynch, reports the Seattle Times.

The report says there may be a committee this season, but "expect Lynch to be the Chairman of the Board." Michael will likely be second, and Turbin will be third and play on passing downs.


Robert Turbin vs. Christine Michael an intriguing battle


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2014) With Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch coming off 400-plus touches, an intriguing battle for the backup spot is shaping up between Robert Turbin and Christine Michael, reports the Seattle Times.

Turbin excels in pass protection and the team trusted him to spell Lynch down the stretch. He averaged 3.4 yards on 77 regular-season carries. 

A second-round pick last year, the more explosive Michael finished his rookie season with 79 yards on 18 carries. He'll push Turbin in training camp.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

"At some point in the game, Marshawn (Lynch) is going to get tired and he’s going to come out and we don’t feel like we miss a beat when Turbo gets to go in there," Bevell told the Seattle Times. "We like his size. We like his speed. We like his toughness and his willingness to stick it up in there. He does a great job for us in protection as well."

Turbin got 85 touches during the regular season. He averaged 3.4 yards per carry and caught eight balls for 60 yards.

Robert Turbin plays usual role


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
