Seahawks RB Christine Michael set to have bigger role after impressive spring

Seahawks running back Christine Michael @Cmike33 should see more work this season. The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta admits that he doesn't know exactly how much more, but "[Michael's] play in the spring did nothing to quell the idea he will get regular carries this season," Condotta wrote Sunday.
Michael was active for all of last season but played in only three games. He carried the ball 18 times for 79 total yards.

Fantasy Analysis:

Condotta may not be certain how often Michael will play, but he has already gone on record with a guess, sort of. He thinks Marshawn Lynch @MoneyLynch will see 2-3 fewer carries per game this season. Assuming those touches go to Michael, that would put him around the 50-60-carry range. Lynch will remain the Seahawks' workhorse, and Michael will remain a clear backup/handcuff this season. But it's only right for the Seahawks to use the explosive and powerful youngster more often. He will likely be their starter once Lynch's contract expires after the 2015 season.
