Christine Michael Fantasy Value temporary?

5 posts in this topic

How valuable is Thomas Rawls when he comes back? Who is the red zone RB for the Seahawks? I hate how teams use different red zone RBs. It hurts fantasy values for teams because one does all the running then the other guy just pounds in for a 2 yard TD. I have Christine Michael and someone is offering Tyler Eifert. I am in desperate need for a TE. I feel like Christine is only temporary. Who will get more carries when Rawls comes back?

My other RBs are Eziekel and Murray so he would just be a W/R.

How valuable is Eifert? He didn’t do much this past week but I think they are starting off slow with him because of injury.

Unless Tyler Eifert is going to go bonkers like Gronk and A.J.Green is banged up, I cannot with good conscience trade Christine Michael right now. It is like a bird in one hand vs two in the bush scenario. 

 

Do you have Rawls on your roster along with Christine Michael? Even when both were healthy, Christine Michael was running better and eventually the Seahawks realized he was a better option with Rawls banged up and we have this situation. For some reason, even in the Cardinals game, the Seahawks did not commit to the run as much as I thought they would.

 

I own Christine Michael in 3 leagues now. I would grab Rawls as a safety net, and not do this trade, just my opinion. That way, you still have the Seahawks starter, no matter how it evolves.  That would be my first option. 

 

If you have a great bench already for a sure fire WR/RB flex, and are leading the league comfortably by a few wins, I would take it. With RB injuries around, all it takes is one injury to Murray or Ezekiel to wreck things for your line up that a flex RB becomes starter RB. Ask me, I drafted Adrian Peterson and Arian Foster within my first 5 picks :(

My record is 5-2. I couldve been 6-1 if Christine played like the other weeks but I did not know that the Cardinals defense was going to be that stingy this past weekend. It was a close score.

 

My bench is okay. They each score atleast 10 points every week. I added Rawls today. Im going to wait another week to see how Eifert does this weekend. It’s a London game so I am holding off on the trade. I hate these London games, the fields are not the best conditions for football players. They are made for tall, skinny lightweight soccer players not big, heavy football players so the oline tends to slip a lot.

Rawls won't be back till 3 weeks from now, possibly week 10, and if he starts, it mostly won't be till the FF playoffs IMO. This is assuming he lights up in his initial few games of timeshare when they'll be easing him in.

    • Yeah, the slow starts are dreadful. Just makes you wonder what in blue skies are we doing in practice?    Can't rely on Andrew to bring us back every game. Chud is also to blame. He's gotta get better and more creative at play calling    I like Green Bay's play calling how they move everyone around. Dorsett should be our Randall Cobb. Put him in the backfield, in motion for jet sweeps. The kid has speed, use him everywhere until we actually trade him if they still are trying to trade him 
    •   She pushed him and then slapped him across the face.   Maybe you could argue somewhat from a moralistic prospective that his response was excessive.   But again, in this country people don't tend to see it that way if it's a guy vs. a guy even if there is a massive size difference.  If a guy starts something, people will usually cheer if he gets pounded for it.  So arguing that isn't in keeping with how we usually view these things.   Thing is that ultimately she hit him first, he struck back ending her violent attack.  That doesn't make him a monster.  At worst that makes him human.  Quite frankly if you ask me he's a person who was defending himself and his dignity.  Slapping another person across the face is not just a physical attack it's an insult on their dignity.                      
    • I buy his change in attitude, it's refreshing.

      But my problems, or I guess my questions, with Pagano are more just about his actual coaching ability. He can change his ways all he wants but we'll see if he's actually able to coach this team up.
    • Part of it is the negative side of a zone blocking scheme.  With zone blocking the line is supposed to flow to the play side so that means a lot of times on even fronts there is a guy unblocked (I don't remember if the D was in an even front or an odd front on this play).  On the play mentioned by the OP (I think it was Turbin on the delay not Mack) without knowing the specifics, that could just as easily be on the QB and not the scheme.  The QB needs to be able to see uncovered defenders, he should have sent the TE in motion to that side.  If there is a defender not covered by the zone, you usually want him near the POA so that player gets caught up in the cluster as the oline flows to the play side.  That is why I think this is on the QB, he has got to know the blocking scheme well enough to identify the player that is not going to get caught up in (we call it the wave but that's because it's easier for 7th graders to understand a wave rather than a moving zone) the wave and adjust the formation accordingly.   It could also be the scheme which, if that's the case, then Philbin needs to be fired immediately.  You cannot develop a blocking scheme that leaves a defender on the LOS unblocked on a delay or misdirection type play, players in the NFL are too fast for that.
    • I'm buying that he is noticeably different in what he says. You can tell in his press conferences that he is vocally expecting more out of players than in previous seasons (atleast publicly). Time will tell if this mantra produces any changes.
