2013 Fantasy Football Profile: Christine Michael Has Ideal Backup Role
Name: Christine Michael
Team: Seattle Seahawks
Position: Running Back
Years Pro: Rookie
Draft stock: (Stagnant) Michael was a class-A knucklehead with the Texas A&M Aggies, yet the NFL Scouting Combine saved him from going going undrafted in 2013. Therefore, the fantasy football buzz around this rookie running back is minimal to say the least. Not to mention, the Seahawks’ running backs are pretty darned good as is.
2012 fantasy impact: When Michael wasn’t in Aggies head coach Kevin Sumlin‘s doghouse he was rather exciting in the backfield. In fact, as a senior Michael rushed a mere 88 times for a grand total of 417 rushing yards. The Aggies’ running back ran a 40-yard dash timed at 4.5 seconds, which is nothing to scoff at, however.
Best-case scenario: Although Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin are both better backs than Christine, his speed is undeniable and the rookie finds the end zone multiple times in 2013.
Worst-case scenario: Turbin overshadow’s Michael and the third-round pick is a ghost in his rookie season and it’s largely because of his off-the-field antics and unwillingness to learn the playbook.
Where you should draft him: Lets get one thing straight: Michael is a total risk in his rookie season as he starts the year as a third-string back. Therefore, don’t get too adventurous and only drat Michael as a low-risk guy in the 15th round or later.
