Seahawks RB Christine Michael fumbles in second preseason game


Seahawks RB Christine Michael fumbles in second preseason game

In his first carry of the second preseason game, Seattle RB Christine Michael @Cmike33 fumbled, which was recovered by the Seahawks. Turbin rushed 12 times for 81 yards and one TD while Michael had eight carries for 45 yards. It it also worth noting that Michael has run behind Robert Turbin @RobT_33 in both preseason games. Michael looks to have third-string duties at this point and hasn't shown much of a reason why he should be Marshawn Lynch @MoneyLynch's direct backup over Turbin.

Fantasy Analysis:

Michael is a fantasy favorite and his ADP reflects that, but he has clearly been outplayed by Turbin through preseason, There are certain times where we can get hints as to which one would be the favorite to start if Lynch was to miss time. For NFL and fantasy purposes, that will be Turbin leading a committee. You should handcuff appropriately for redraft, although Michael could very well be the better long-term dynasty value.
