710 Seattle - [Full Article]

Rookie Christine Michael showed some giddy-up on that 43-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, but that was only his second-most impressive play in Green Bay. He single-handedly caught a pass out of the backfield and turned it into a 25-yard gain.

Not only did Robert Turbin look a little less explosive when he got the ball, but he failed on a blitz pickup of Clay Matthews, resulting in one of the Packers' three sacks of Wilson. The fact that a running back – alone – was assigned to block one of the league's top pass rushers is evidence that the scheme was as much to blame as execution on that sack, but there's going to be a pretty fierce competition to see who gets more carries this season: Turbin or Michael.

Fantasy Impact: 

Michael has the momentum and has big-play ability, so if Marshawn Lynch were to go down, we'd probably see both Michael and Turbin involved in the running game.
