I noticed Christine did a great job on both the 40 a and weights... Will the team that drafts Christine need to build a separate locker room for her or have her showerwith the man?

Laughing He's actually a pretty good sleeper candidate, while he didn't get a lot of work last season he's got good skills with minimal wear and tear so far...

NFL.com's Gil Brandt reports Texas A&M RB Christine Michael missed two team interviews at the Combine after oversleeping.
Truly inexplicable. Michael put on a show in Indy, posting a 43-inch vertical leap, 4.54 40-yard dash, 10-foot-5 broad jump and 27 reps on the bench press. But he spent his senior year deep in coach Kevin Sumlin's doghouse, and is sorely lacking in maturity. He has talent worth gambling on, but teams are unlikely to do so before day three.

Well that's no good.

That pick is a real headscratcher, why back up a fairly young Marshawn Lynch with two more young guys. Its a bad spot for Michael to land in terms of playing time...

Quote :
Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael posted 89 yards on 16 carries in the team's preseason opener against the San Diego Chargers Thursday, Aug. 8. He appears to get stronger as the game went on, and head coach Pete Carroll said he wanted to make sure to get Christine into a rhythm. "We weren't going to get frustrated with what happened early, and just keep sticking to it," Carroll said. "He bounced the ball well outside on his long run - had a couple of nice runs. He's got a long way to go, but he ran hard, looked quick and made some guys miss. So I think it's a very good first game for him."
He was pretty damn impressive.

He looked pretty good, I wasn't overly impressed outside a couple of good runs. They didn't give him as many carries but I thought Spencer Ware looked even better, explosive and tough. I am so disappointed that Ware ended up with the Seahawks and is slated to play FB... I had him as my #5 RB heading into the draft, I think he is much more talented than guys like Leveon Bell or Montee Ball, I would have loved to see him get the opportunities those guys are getting...

With the recent Marshawn signing @ 3 years obviously cuts into CMikes playing time. If he was any good why wouldnt he get more touches at least?

Why dont they trade him if he is so good? I ask my questions because I feel like he is talented only to some of us fantasy owners with hope.

I have never understood the attention and love that Christine Michael got from the fantasy community, he certainly never earned it 'on the field' scoring 'real fantasy points'...

Not only did Seattle make the effort to re-sign Lynch signaling it is not Michael's turn yet, there is the little fact that Michael has still never moved past Turbin as the primary backup for the Hawks in either of the last two seasons... I think that is more telling of what the Seahawks think of him, regardless of whether Lynch was re-signed or not...

Clearly he has been overhyped
However Lynch's re-signing says more about Lynch been the main reason the offense has survived and clear acknowledgement that with him they have the best shot to reach the SB again. It says very little about the other RBs imho

Also what does "backup" to a 300 carry guy mean anyway? Its the guy who gets 3rd down duties and that kind of thing and doesn't tell us much about how carries (esp 1st, 2nd D, GL etc) would shake out if Lynch isn't there. I.e. the role is different

I agree with you that SEA re-signing Lynch is an acknowledgement that they believe he gives them the best shot at the Superbowl, but I think that also pretty clearly says that they do not have that same belief with either Turbin or Michael, I think that says quite a lot, which is the opposite of very little...

Turbin was almost always the guy to come in on early downs when Lynch was taking a breather last year. Also, the team's official depth charts have always had Turbin at #2 and Michael #3... and finally, Turbin got 74 carries last season and Michael got 34... No guarantees but I think there is a lot of evidence already their telling us how carries would shake out without Lynch...

I am just really glad I traded this guy before this all happened. I was never high on him either, just another overhyped young RB. I mean he looked good at times, but not enough to warrant all the hype he was receiving.

ESPN Seahawks reporter Terry Blount believes Christine Michael is on the roster bubble. Analysis: He'll be fighting undrafted rookie Thomas Rawls for the final running back spot. The 24-year-old has logged just 52 carries since entering the league in 2013. Getting out of Seattle might be the best thing for him. Michael is never going to see much playing time behind mainstays Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin.

ROTFLMAO

All the love this guy has produced and the guy is fighting for a spot on the roster. This is great.

If he does get let go it will give the CMike owners even more hope. I just dont know if it is hopeless hope or a new change of scenery makes his value rise.

If Ingram or Stewart become RB1s this year they are really no different than CMike. All have just been waiting for their time. It seems like Ingram and Stewart are headed down a road with more carries so if CMike gets traded he could be too.

Ingram and Stewart have been decent backs their entire career. Michael has never done anything. Ever.

They have? Maybe Stewart has been good when healthy I will give you that, but that is so few weeks per year I dont trust him.

Ingram couldnt even beat out Pierre Thomas in my mind and RBush......so to me he isnt showing signs of entire career goodness.

If Michaels doesn't make the roster it will be because he was beat out by and undrafted FA rookie (Thomas Rawls), and I don't see that could be a good thing for him, in any way shape or form.

Michaels has been extremely overrated and has managed to accomplish absolutely nothing so far in the NFL...

Wow???  Somebody actually traded Bennett to you for CMike?!?!  That is a Grand Slam for you!  Bennett is a really good fantasy TE.

Huge win for you there. vote yes

Be interesting to see where he lands if they do cut or trade him, which would surprise me. They invested a decent amount in him and would get little to nothing back at this point.

Quote :
(ROTOWORLD)Seahawks UDFA RB THOMAS RAWLS has emerged as the rookie the coaches love.
Analysis: Per ESPN, coach Pete Carroll "loves RawlsÂ’ toughness, seeing him as a bruising runner similar to (Marshawn) Lynch." It's the same things we saw on Rawls as he ran extremely physical, aggressive and angry at Central Michigan. There's speculation he could push Christine Michael off the roster in Seattle, meaning he needs to be on deeper Dynasty benches. Lynch is 29 years old and Robert Turbin is ticketed for 2016 free agency.

Maybe its coach speak, but Rawls is getting the love while Christine has virtually disappeared... Interesting...

Carroll loves to spew the bull, always has. Could be just to motivate, but either way it's Crowded in Seattle now...I have CM cheap in a few leagues, and consider him a hold until things shake out. If you don't like the talent, he may make his way to a decent team, and be good trade bait.

Yeah, CM is a hold. I firmly believe Lynch is fine after this year. Now whether CM is the guy is yet to be seen, and whether he can handle a full time workload in a running program is another.

How did CM gain so much value? and how has he kept it? All he has been since entering the league is a 3rd string RB who barely touches the ball and has not flashed anything special when he has gotten chances. Now he may be on the roster bubble behind an undrafted FA...

Blame Michael Turner.  I think a lot of owners envisions this type of payoff and have jacked CM's value on a similar outcome.  

2 years ago best case scenario he becomes a lead back for Seattle who are a power run team, worst case scenario after 4 years of doing back up duties he hits free agency, signs with a new team, and marches off to glory as a lead back cranking out 1000 yards seasons.

Will either option happen? Seems unlikely at this point, but hope is still free and some owners will cling to it.

Lynch will never let him get a chance. People keep thinking he will go away and CM will be a monster in his shoes in an offense that is wonderful for a RB, but I am not sure it will ever happen.

Can't blame it all on Lynch when CM has never even been able to unseat Turbin for the primary backup role... And what has CM ever done to make anyone think he would be a monster even if he got his chance? He has been all hype, and it has been unwarranted hype to boot...

Well that is the general feeling. People were high on him because he was solid in college and he has averaged 4.9YPC in the big leagues in LIMITED opportunity. But then again Turbin has averaged 4.0YPC in 3 times as many attempts over the last two years.

He always had a bit of hype but was still going late 1st/early 2nd in rookie drafts. I think that the hype really got crazy in his rookie preseason. He had one really good game against the Packers but half his yards came on a 43-yard run. He also had a decent game against the Chargers. I think that the flash of potential, along with the thought that anyone can run behind Seattle's line and Lynch is getting older made everyone think that they had the next Shaun Alexander. It's really not that much different than the Kniles Davis situation although Kniles did put up some decent regular season numbers last year.
