Seattle Times - [Full Article]

Derrick Coleman is used to clearing the way for others to gain the running-back glory with the Seahawks.

But this week, the spotlight could fall on him and maybe Bryce Brown and Christine Michael, all suddenly being asked to fill in for the injured Marshawn Lynch and Thomas Rawls as Seattle’s tailback.

On Friday as he spoke with a few reporters, Coleman said he’s confident the job can get done without Lynch and Rawls.

“We are not going to be the weakest link,’’ Coleman said, mentioning the likes of Michael and Brown. “We are going to go out there and do our job and do what we can do.’’

Fantasy Impact: 

The story said HC Pete Carroll has sounded enamored with Coleman this week, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he has a big role against the Browns. This situation is very much up in the air as Brown, Fred Jackson and Michael will likely all be involved in some capacity as well, making all of them risky fantasy plays.
