2015 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)

Last updated on Jul-05-2015 by Shawn Childs

Through two seasons, Michael has touched the ball just 53 times. He has averaged 4.9 YPC. He was a part-time player over four years with Texas A&M, where he rushed for 2,781 yards and 34 TDs on 529 carries. Christine also caught 44 passes for 323 yards. Although he doesn't have a clear path to playing time and will have to jump Turbin on the depth chart, Michael is a strong, explosive athlete with 4.55 40 speed and tremendous natural ability. He's worth stashing in deep leagues in case he gets a chance.

Jul-07-15 Seahawks RB Christine Michael on the roster bubble

Christine Michael was once a fantasy darling. Many people (not myself) believed he would be the feature back once Marshawn Lynch was done. Now he is battling for a roster spot. He has been given his time to shine with Robert Turbin injured and Lynch not being a huge fan of practicing, and so far he's been showed up by undrafted rookie Thomas Rawls. Michael needs to have a great training camp because it's "step up or step out" time for him. Pete Carroll have fallen in love with Rawls' toughness and hard-nosed running style, which makes Michael's roster spot very insecure.

Fantasy Analysis:

I was never a fan of Michael. Not once did I ever believe or suggest he would be even an average NFL running back. My honest opinion is that Michael will not make the cut over Rawls. By this point the team has seen enough of Michael and know what they have with him. Unless he really shows out during training camp and preseason, he'll be looking for a team after final roster cuts. The good news is that he'll definitely find a job quickly if cut.
