Christine Michael Fantasy Value temporary?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Keep in mind too, the more wins from here on out, will only increase the odds keeping Pagano.         
    • I watch them a bit. I can certainly concede that Hill is the most talented of the three and may be better than I gave him credit for in my post...   Hunt is not that great, imo. He has had a very good season, especially for a rookie, but I think he has overachieved quite a bit. He doesn't have the elite power/speed combo of guys like Fournette or Zeke. I think he's an average (or slightly above) running back in a very good situation. I don't think he would be rated so highly if he ran for Cleveland or Indy.   Just my opinion, though. I'm not married to it, either... I'm sure I've made many foolish statements about young players in the past.    I was just trying to illustrate that the OC in KC (is his name Nagy?) is part of an offense that is playing better than the sum of its parts. How much of that can be attributed to him and how much is Andy Reid is a fair question, though. New HC candidates are always a gamble, though. 
    • Whichever NFC team that has the best interior pass rush will have the best chance to beat the Pats.  It's their Achilles heel.  
    •   I am NOT a fan of tanking.   I argued on behalf of trying to win the last two games of both the 15 and 16 seasons.    The argument was we had a chance to go 8-8 so you absolutely try to win those games.     5 straight seasons without a losing season is a good achievement for any franchise.   But now that we are overwhelmingly likely to finish below 500,  then I feel free to say that while I don't want us to tank,  I will not be upset with any loss.     Even if we lose them all.      I know this is a nuanced position,   but I won't be upset with any losses in the last six games.   All that said....   We stand a decent chance to win a number of these games.     Only the J'Ville game feels like a likely loss.   The other five feels like we've got a decent shot at each.   We should be competitive in those five games.    So, we might surprise to the upside and win more than we might expect.     The team is playing better.   By group,  the defense is getting better,   the special teams are solid,  and even the offense is a little more cohesive and efficeint.     And each unit might get a little better down the stretch.   We might surprise a lot of people,  including ourselves.
