2014 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)Last updated on Jul-14-2014 by Brad Kruse
DYNASTY STASH: Michael is in line for the Seattle running job when Lynch moves on. In last year's preseason, he looked explosive. If Lynch were to get hurt, the hype for Michael would reach a fever pitch. It's difficult to gauge and it might just depend on the league. He should be thought of as a priority handcuff. If you don't own Lynch and are looking for a wild card, he is a decent pick as well. But, the trouble with stashing a running back is being able to hold that player through bye weeks when your roster depth is tested. Consider this as you fill out your fantasy roster. If you have a lot of early byes, you might not want to gamble on Michael. If your bye weeks are later, perhaps that will give you an opportunity to see what develops before having to make tough roster decisions.
Editor's note: Patience is a virtue. The reality is that if Michael has another excellent preseason, he might be too good to sit. Lynch is great and all; however, if Seattle can provide him some rest and not lose anything by giving carries to Michael, they absolutely should.
