Week 7: at Arizona Cardinals

All RB vs ARI

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Christine Michael continues to flourish as the Seahawks' lead running back, posting 18/64/2 rushing and three targets for 3/19/0 receiving in the game vs. Atlanta. He's amassed 81/354/4 rushing and 20 targets for 15/87/1 receiving over the first five games of the season, to check in at 12th among all fantasy running backs so far (standard FBG scoring). Meanwhile, Thomas Rawls is still a few weeks away from returning from his fractured fibula, so Michael will continue to stake his claim to the top job in Seattle in the interim. The Cardinals' rush defense held the Jets to a mere 14/33/0 at University of Phoenix Stadium last weekend, while two weeks ago the Cardinals gave up 36/151/2 rushing to the 49ers - they have been up and down in recent weeks. So far this year, Arizona averages 104 rushing yards allowed per game (16th in the NFL) with six rushing scores allowed over six games played. However, from Week Four to Week Six of regular season (the last three weeks), Arizona averages 10.1 fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs per game (third-least in the NFL). Michael will visit an inconsistent divisional rival this week - this looks like a neutral matchup to us.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 6 vs ATL (1 / -3 / 0 rush, 6 / 3 / 38 / 0 rec)

Spiller looked a little rusty, with an extremely poor drop early on, and another later on the game while he was wide open but couldn't quite snag a high pass. But he did look quite electric on his three receptions, nearly getting into the end zone on one of them. He remains in what-the-heck-flex territory, but is already a more intriguing play than he was all of last year with the Saints.

2016 Week 4 vs NYJ (2 / 12 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 5 / 1 rec)

Spiller had a touchdown catch in his first game with the team, and handled kickoff returns. With his couple of rushes and couple of catches, it's clear that he has a similar skill set as Christine Michael, so if he continues to have success, potentially this could cut into Michael's touches.
