Default Christine Michael, anyone?

I realize this was mentioned in the NFL thread. But, by all means, if it makes you feel better posting a picture of the moon (BCJ? militia? Beavis? Steven? Anyone?), go right ahead. I realize that many of you have very little going on in your lives, so I try to be tolerant. It's like the three-legged, almost entirely blind dog that lives up the street. Sometimes he poops in our yard. But by damn, I just can't yell at him.

Anyway, I'm not sure that Christine Michael is an upgrade from any of the backs currently on our roster. But he is averaging more per carry than any of our current guys, he has six TDs, and he has some experience with Russell Okung's sucktitude. Plus, we could use a guy with an androgynous name - am I right?

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300...istine-michael

In a shocking move, the Seahawks are saying good night to The Awakening.

With Thomas Rawls ready to return from injury, Seattle is waiving running back Christine Michael, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the move.

The move comes as a surprise only because Michael was Seattle's primary ballcarrier for the bulk of the 2016 season. With Rawls often sidelined with a leg injury, and the Seahawks cycling through backs (C.J. Spiller, Alex Collins) every other week, Michael was the one constant.

The fourth-year back started seven of nine games and led Seattle with 117 carries, 469 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns; he was also a top-five target for Russell Wilson out of the backfield (20 rec, 96 yards). His carries, however, had diminished over the past two weeks.

I don't think he clears waivers. I don't think he'd set the world on fire, but I'd be keen to bring him in for a look.

Hillman 16 carries for 41 yards.


2.6 yards per carry sounds about right.

He has 4 yards per carry, I am for it but doubt we have a shot.

Plus Bibbs seemed to do ok handling blitz pickups vs Saints and had that big play vs Oakland, I bet it is Bibbs who keeps him off the roster if he did make it to us.

Really. At this point it doesn't matter if we trot out Ladainian Tomlinson or Maurice Clarett and it's gonna be that way until we actually fix the offensive line issues. Why waste our time with another teams trash so he can do the exact same thing our current running backs are doing behind this abomination of an oline?

Sealver Siliga was also waived.

wouldn't hate this move for d-line depth.


also "Injured Saints linebacker James Laurinaitis could become a free agent soon." Intriguing

Christine Michael was a backup on my FFL team until CJ Anderson went on IR. Then I had to start him. But with Rawls coming back and Prosise on a tear, he's doomed as a fantasy back in Seattle. But not yet in Denver.

So I support this move.

See above. He's a solid #2 back. Denver needs a #1 back. None are available, so Michael is not a bad option.
