Christine Michael-Dallas Cowboys (7.2%)
I’ve never benn a huge fan of Michael’s and said he would get no playing time in Dallas barring injury. Then Sunday night, Lance Dunbar jacked up his knee and opened the door wide for Michael to step in and produce for a Dallas run game that is trying to carry the team in the absence of Dez Bryant and Tony Romo.
Michael has only one carry since joining the Cowboys from Seattle where he backed up Marshawn Lynch, and that carry came on Sunday night in New Orleans and went for -1.0 yards. However, with Dunbar out and Darren McFadden joining Joseph Randle in the platoon look for Michael to get more involvement in Dallas going forward.
Michael is shown freakish athletic ability, but he has very few NFL carries and is still raw. However, if you are in a deep league and are looking for a stash option with upside give Michael a look since there should be some gameday opportunities in his near future.
