FANTASY FOOTBALL ISSUES: CHRISTINE MICHAEL CUT LOOSE IN SHOCKER, C.J. PROSISE COULD BE MONSTER SECOND HALF BACK

Well that was surprising.  Or maybe it wasn't.  Either way, very rarely do you see a running back go from being a competent starter a month ago, to the street a few weeks later.  That is exactly what has taken place with Christine Michael who the Seattle Seahawks gave up on Tuesday in a move that caught many by surprise.  Again though maybe there shouldn't have been shock as Michael had crested in early October as he was playing well in place of the injured Thomas Rawls but then began a descent into some ugly outings and then got injured.  The biggest red flag was Michael rushing for just one yard two weeks ago that opened the door to the spectacular starting debut of Notre Dame rookie C.J. Prosise last Sunday night.  With Prosise playing so well both running and catching the football and with Rawls finally on the verge of returning from injury, Pete Carroll clearly felt he was stocked enough with backs to cast aside Michael.  Overall it was a very disappointing run with the Seahawks for Michael who often was big in the preseason but who came up small when the games counted.  The fallout now is that Prosise all of a sudden becomes that midseason monster value play who can tilt many leagues toward the owner who had him stacked on the bench.  Especially those in PPR formats should be really excited as Prosise ran for 66 yards and caught 87 more yards of passes last Sunday versus the Patriots.  Even if Rawls returns, Prosise should be graded as a top RB 2 given the chance at hand he has.
