Carroll high on Christine Michael


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) Seahawks coach Pete Carroll has high hopes for second-year running back Christine Michael. He said at the NFL Scouting Combine on Friday that Michael could be Seattle's breakout star in 2014.

"He's really talented and he's a really exciting guy in our program. Probably has the most breakout potential out of anybody because you haven't seen much of him yet," Carroll said via Pro Football Talk. "We've seen him, we know that he can do really special stuff. He played in a very competitive position. It was hard to get in there with Marshawn (Lynch) and Robert Turbin there. But he'll give those guys a real run when we come back to work. He'll grow a lot from Year 1 to Year 2. We all know in our program that he's going to be very explosive and a really exciting guy. He showed that in his chances that he had."

Part of the reason Michael could have a breakout season in 2014 is that Lynch could be headed for a downturn in production after 400-plus touches in 2013. That could open the door for Michael to play a bigger role next year.


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.

Christine Michael gets rare chance to contribute


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/10/2013) With the Seahawks leading 33-10 late in the fourth quarter, running back Christine Michael got on the field for only the second time this season Week 10 at Atlanta, handling the ball just about every play on the team's final drive. He finished with eight carries for 33 yards and would have had even better numbers if he didn't have a 25-yard run negated by a holding penalty.

Michael is behind not only Marshawn Lynch, but Robert Turbin on the depth chart.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Running back Robert Turbin, who's recovered from a foot injury, got a lot of work and hit the holes hard, the paper said.


Christine Michael runs wild in opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2013) With Marshawn Lynch on the bench and Robert Turbin on the PUP list, Seahawks rookie running back Christine Michael made his presence felt as he fell 11 yards shy of the century mark in Thursday's preseason opener against the Chargers.

Michael broke for five rushes of seven-plus yards, including a 24-yard gain early in the fourth quarter He rushed for a team-high 89 yards on 16 carries, averaging 5.6 yards per clip in a 31-10 victory. The rookie from Texas A&M has lined up as the backup to Lynch while Turbin remains on the PUP list during camp.

Who is the handcuff for Lynch?


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/24/2013) The Seahawks made news Tuesday when reports surfaced that second-year running back Robert Turbin is expected to be the third-down back behind starter Marshawn Lynch. That has Fantasy owners wondering who is the handcuff option for Lynch -- Turbin or rookie Christine Michael.

This is probably a scenario where if Lynch goes down the Seahawks would use a committee of Turbin and Michael. Turbin is probably the better handcuff option on Draft Day, but Michael might be the one running between the tackles and could have more upside.

This isn't like Houston with Arian Foster and Ben Tate or Baltimore with Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce. The backfield behind Lynch is wide open, and Seattle might opt to use both guys if Lynch gets hurt.

Of course, we hope that doesn't happen, but be prepared just in case. You might be better off with Michael long-term, but Turbin could get the first crack at the job.

We'd gamble on Turbin on Draft Day as the handcuff to Lynch, but be ready to pounce on Michael if he gets the majority of touches should Lynch suffer an injury.


Christine Michael off to good start


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/27/2013) Seahawks rookie running back Christine Michael is making a good impression, reports the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

The report says Michael impressed Seattle's coaching staff despite nursing a sore hamstring early on during OTA workouts and in minicamps. His style fits with the Seahawks -- he is hard-nosed, tough and explosive like current starter Marshawn Lynch.

Michael is expected to challenge Robert Turbin for the No. 2 job behind Lynch this season.


Michael looks good at OTAs


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/4/2013) While Marshawn Lynch sits out some of the Seahawks OTAs, rookie running back Christine Michael has picked up a lot of extra work and has taken advantage of it. He's shown some incredible speed, explosiveness and change of direction on handoffs and seemingly has a good understanding of what's being asked of him according to coach Pete Carroll. Michael knows there's much to be done. "I want to become a better blocker, a better inside runner, goal-line runner -- improve my game in all aspects," Michael told the Tacoma News Tribune. Being a great pass protector is part of being a complete back -- protecting the quarterback, blocking the big linebackers; you've got to work at it."

Seattle surprises with Michael pick


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/26/2013) The Seahawks have selected Texas A&M running back Christine Michael with the 62nd overall selection, and final pick in the second round of the NFL Draft. The selection was another surprise move by the Seahawks, who were thought to be focused on improving the line of scrimmage and linebacker early in the draft. Instead, they picked up a bruising back to join Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin. The Seahawks held the 56th overall selection but traded with Baltimore to drop back six spots and also picked up additional fifth- and sixth-round selections. The 62nd overall pick was the latest selection in Seattle's draft history. Michael saw limited action his senior season with the Aggies, but still rushed for 12 touchdowns. In 2011, Michael rushed for 899 yards in nine games before suffering a torn ACL.
