  Colts | Week 3 injury report for Indianapolis    Fri Sep 21, 02:33 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Denico Autry (ankle), OT Anthony Castonzo (hamstring), DE Hassan Ridgeway (calf) and CB Quincy Wilson (concussion) were unable to participate in practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 3 versus the Philadelphia Eagles. CB Christopher Milton (concussion) fully practiced for a second straight day Friday, Sept. 21, and is listed as questionable. S Clayton Geathers did not participate in practice Friday and is also listed as possible. WR T.Y. Hilton (quad), OL Denzelle Good (knee, wrist) and RB Christine Michael (illness) practiced in full Friday and have been taken off the injury report.

Footballguys view: The Colts will miss Castonzo against the Eagles impressive array of pass rushers. Hilton is good to go after resting his quad injury earlier in the week.

  Colts | Week 2 Indianapolis Colts inactives    Sun Sep 16, 11:45 AM

The Indianapolis Colts have declared OT Anthony Castonzo, DL Denico Autry, OT Denzelle Good, DE Tarell Basham, CB Lenzy Pipkins, RB Christine Michael and CB Christopher Milton inactive for Week 2.

Footballguys view: With Castonzo out, Andrew Luck's job will be tougher today. Marlon Mack is active, but only a desperation play in his first week back from a hamstring injury.

  Colts | Christine Michael explosive in win    Thu Aug 30, 10:33 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Christine Michael rushed five times for 41 yards and caught one pass for 20 yards in a 27-26 preseason win over the Cincinnati Bengals Thursday, Aug. 30.

Footballguys view: Michael was great in the preseason finale, but the fact that he was playing might be a bad sign for his roster spot chances. It looks like Jordan Wilkins will be the back to play in Week 1 if you want to dabble in the Colts running game against the Bengals. We'll be watching Marlon Mack's practice participation too.

  Colts | Christine Michael to the IR    Thu Jun 15, 09:54 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Christine Michael (undisclosed) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, June 15.

Footballguys view: The Colts just picked him up and Michael must've gone down in minicamp. Injuries and inconsistency have plagued Michael ever since he came into the league.

  Colts | Christine Michael signs with Colts    Thu Jun 1, 03:11 PM

Free-agent RB Christine Michael (Packers) signed an undisclosed deal with the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, June 1. RB Brandon Radcliff was waived in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Michael has always had potential, but he's never played up to that and he's bounced around the league. The Colts have a thin group of RBs behind Frank Gore. Michael will compete with guys like Robert Turbin, Josh Ferguson and rookie Marlon Mack. Even in this thin RB corps, Michael is no lock to make the 53-man roster.

  Patriots | Christine Michael visits Pats    Wed May 10, 10:18 AM

Free-agent RB Christine Michael (Packers) visited the New England Patriots Tuesday, May 9.

Footballguys view: Michael has washed out of the league and has bounced around to several different teams despite the fact that he's got great natural talent as a runner. If anyone could rejuvenate his career, it would be the Patriots. They're likely just kicking the tires after adding both Mike Gillislee and Rex Burkhead this offseason.

  Packers | Christine Michael shown the door    Mon May 1, 01:12 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Christine Michael was released Monday, May 1.

Footballguys view: Michael has bounced around the league despite having quite a bit of natural talent. The Packers have revamped their backfield with three RBs chosen in the 2017 NFL draft. Fourth-round pick Jamaal Williams is the most likely to challenge converted WR Ty Montgomery for the lead RB job for Green Bay.

  Packers | Christine Michael to return to GB    Wed Mar 22, 06:55 PM

Free-agent RB Christine Michael re-signed with the Green Bay Packers Wednesday, March 22. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Michael didn't do much with the Packers after he was claimed off waivers late last year. With Eddie Lacy (Seahawks) gone, Michael will get a chance at more playing time. We imagine the Packers will take a RB at some point in the draft too.

  Packers | Green Bay meets with two FAs    Wed Mar 22, 04:40 PM

Free-agent RB Christine Michael (Packers) and OT Byron Bell (Titans) met with the Green Bay Packers Wednesday, March 22, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Packers need some help in the ground game since they lost Eddie Lacy (Seahawks) in free agency. They had Michael last year after picking him up off waivers in mid-November. He didn't do much with the opportunity, so the Packers shouldn't be too fired up about bringing him back.

  Packers | Christine Michael set to be FA    Sat Jan 28, 03:33 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Christine Michael will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: He's one of the most naturally talented runners in the NFL, but Michael has bounced around the league as he's almost constantly disappointed at every stop. He may get some team to sign him off the open market, but he'll be no lock for a 53-man roster.

  Packers | Christine Michael added to injury report    Sat Jan 21, 01:38 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Christine Michael (back) has been added to the injury report for the NFC Championship game because of a back injury and is listed as questionable.

Footballguys view: Michael wasn't in line to do much anyway. In two postseason games with the Packers, Michael has only 10 carries for 47 yards. If he's limited against the Falcons, it just means more work for Ty Montgomery.

  Packers | Christine Michael out with illness    Thu Dec 15, 02:29 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Christine Michael (illness) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 15.

Footballguys view: Michael wasn't much use last weekend and Ty Montgomery has been moved to running back full time. He's a solid WR1 with the combined yardage and should be the main back for the Packers this weekend.

  Packers | GB backfield duo emerges    Mon Dec 12, 09:03 AM

Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery and RB Christine Michael split the carries Sunday, Dec. 11. Montgomery rushed nine times for 41 yards and a touchdown, while Michael rushed 10 times for 36 yards. Montgomery also caught three balls for 45 yards. RB James Starks rushed twice for three yards.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to react to this new trend for the Packers. Montgomery is getting worked in methodically as a running back, and he's a RB3/flex option with this role. Michael is doing more as Starks continues to disappoint.

  Packers | Nine rushes for Christine Michael    Sun Dec 4, 09:05 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Christine Michael rushed nine times for 19 yards in the Week 13 game against the Houston Texans. He was not targeted in the pass game.

Footballguys view: The Packers have been talking about getting Michael more involved, and he was on Sunday against the Texans. The team isn't running the ball well, so Michael should only be rostered in the deepest leagues.

  Packers | More touches for Christine Michael?    Fri Dec 2, 11:17 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Christine Michael 'definitely' needs more touches, according to head coach Mike McCarthy, and McCarthy said there needs to be a better 'flow' in the backfield rotation.

Footballguys view: The Packers aren't running the ball well at all. Using Michael to complement starter James Starks sounds good on paper, but we're skeptical that it will help much. Michael should be on the waiver wire in most leagues.

Green Bay Packers RB Christine Michael is being prepared to play in Week 12, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Footballguys view: We just don't have much faith in Michael. It will be interesting to see how he responds with his new team, but fantasy owners shouldn't count on it.

  Packers | Crash course for Christine Michael     Fri Nov 18, 10:15 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Christine Michael said he has already picked up on some aspects of the offense, and offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett said there is a plan in place for Michael to 'get him up to speed.'

Footballguys view: We don't think Michael is going to play against Washington on Sunday. If you've stashed him, then just keep him on your bench before he's more up to speed in the Packers offense.

  Packers | Christine Michael won't make quick splash    Wed Nov 16, 10:11 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Christine Michael is unlikely to get in enough work in practice to make much, if any, impact in the Week 11 game against the Washington Redskins Sunday, Nov. 20, since he will have only a few days to get acclimated with his new team.

Footballguys view: Even for a running back, you can't just throw someone into the mix like that. We also saw the Packers ease Knile Davis into the mix slowly, so this is just how the Packers roll. James Starks is the starter and will get most of the work, but given how quickly the Packers abandon the run, and his long layoff, we're seeing him as an RB3 this week.

  Packers | Christine Michael claimed by Packers    Wed Nov 16, 04:33 PM

Free-agent RB Christine Michael (Seahawks) was claimed off waivers by the Green Bay Packers Wednesday, Nov. 16, according to a source.

Footballguys view: They're just throwing things at the wall now. He's a long shot, and likely to have little to no role early on. We saw how slowly they rolled Knile Davis out and with James Starks returning from injury, what role Michael may have is very unclear. He's worth a roster flier but also a wait and see attitude.

  Seahawks | Christine Michael released    Tue Nov 15, 05:54 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael was released Tuesday, Nov. 15, according to a source.

Footballguys view: This is a strong sign Thomas Rawls is really close to ready. Michael started off the season weakly, then got kind of hot and has since come crashing down to earth. He scored in two of the last three games he played in, but in one he ran five times for one yard. That's not very good. Rawls will step right back into a starting job.

  Seahawks | Christine Michael not in plans?    Tue Nov 15, 10:33 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael wasn't mentioned when head coach Pete Carroll discussed the matchup with his backfield against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Footballguys view: Michael has cooled off quite a bit, though it's not like the Seahawks are awash with dominant backs. Thomas Rawls could get his job back when healthy.

  Seahawks | Christine Michael takes backseat    Mon Nov 14, 01:32 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael (hamstring) was active in the Week 10 game against the New England Patriots, but he was limited to five carries for 22 yards with one grab and four yards.

Footballguys view: Michael got hot for a while but has since cooled way off due to injury and issues with the protection up front. He's not a sure start in any way for fantasy, and as the Seahawks continue to try and figure out a solution in the backfield, his carries will keep being inconsistent.

  Seahawks | Christine Michael should play vs Pats    Sun Nov 13, 02:45 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael (hamstring) is expected to play against the New England Patriots in Week 10, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Michael had been added to the injury report late in the week.

Footballguys view: Michael will still only get half of the snaps at best and if the Patriots jump out to a lead, he could get less than that. Unless he gets a short rushing touchdown, Michael will likely be a bust this week. With Thomas Rawls returning soon, Michael isn't an essential hold in short bench leagues.

  Seahawks | Christine Michael questionable for Week 10    Fri Nov 11, 05:49 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael (hamstring) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 11, and was a late addition to the injury report. He has listed as questionable for Week 10 against the New England Patriots.

Footballguys view: Michael was already fading in the Seahawks backfield and now he might miss the Sunday night game. With the evening start and low ceiling, there's no reason to risk an inactive, but if Michael is inactive, CJ Prosise becomes a better play.

  Seahawks | No company for Christine Michael yet    Mon Oct 31, 11:11 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael is likely to carry the load again in Week 9 against the Buffalo Bills Monday, Nov. 7, as RB Thomas Rawls (leg) is not expected to be ready yet, head coach Pete Carroll said Monday, Oct. 31.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks can take it easy on Rawls because Michael has been a solid starter. Rawls should be back sometime in the near future, but the team is being wisely cautious with him.

  Seahawks | Christine Michael finds end zone    Sun Oct 30, 08:56 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael rushed 10 times for 40 yards and a touchdown in the Week 8 game against the New Orleans Saints. He also had a catch for two yards on two targets.

Footballguys view: Michael wasn't a complete loss in the good matchup for the Seahawks, but without the score he would have been. CJ Prosise is a viable change of pace in the passing game and Thomas Rawls is back soon, so the awakening for Michael is starting to come to a close with Buffalo up next week.

  Seahawks | Christine Michael readies for big week    Thu Oct 27, 12:52 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael will meet the New Orleans Saints in Week 8. The Saints have allowed 116.8 yards per game on the ground with an NFL-high 11 rushing touchdowns.

Footballguys view: We have Michael as a top-shelf RB1 this week and think he has a strong chance of really going off this weekend.

  Seahawks | Christine Michael totals 90 yards, TD    Sun Oct 2, 09:31 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael rushed 18 times for 58 yards in the Week 4 game against the New York Jets and he added five receptions for 32 yards and a touchdown on six targets.

Footballguys view: Michael ran hard in a tough matchup, and his surprising involvement in the passing game bailed out owners that relied on him. He should have at least 2-3 more games as a starter coming out of the bye and belongs in your lineup.

  Seahawks | Christine Michael set for 20 carries?    Fri Sep 23, 11:13 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael is 'ready for a bigger load' against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3, according to head coach Pete Carroll, and Carroll said Michael is ready to carry the ball '20-something times' in a game.

Footballguys view: The split with Thomas Rawls negatively impacts the fantasy value of both backs. This week against the 49ers, Rawls is doubtful with a shin injury. That makes Michael a potential RB1 in Week 3. Consider him if you need a cheaper RB in DFS, and start him as a RB2 in season-long fantasy.

  Seahawks | Pete Carroll praises Christine Michael    Tue Sep 20, 01:06 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael has caught the eye of head coach Pete Carroll, who was asked about his star-crossed runner on Monday, Sept. 19.

Footballguys view: Michael has outperformed a banged up Thomas Rawls this season. The two should continue to split time and that's a frustrating situation for fantasy owners. Consider both more RB3/flex level plays while the split continues.

  Seahawks | Christine Michael will still have role    Wed Sep 14, 11:07 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael will not start in Week 2 against the Los Angeles Rams, as RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) has been tabbed as starter. However, Michael will still have a role doing forward. 'I don't think in any way do we need to minimize what (Michael) has done. He's done a phenomenal job, he'll still get opportunity to carry the ball,' offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said Wednesday, Sept. 14.

Footballguys view: Michael's role will cut into Rawls' workload. This RB situation needs to shake itself out before we trust either guys as anything more than a RB3/flex level play.

  Seahawks | Christine Michael shines in opener    Mon Sep 12, 01:23 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael carried 15 times for a game-high 66 yards in Week 1 against the Miami Dolphins. He split the load with RB Thomas Rawls who was much less effective, carrying for 32 yards on 12 totes.

Footballguys view: We wouldn't use 'shines' quite so freely, but Michael was the best Seahawks back on Sunday. Going forward, the RBBC in Seattle should continue so consider Michael more of a RB3/flex play and hope he can get into the end zone.
