Seahawks beat writer Tom Pelissero on the team's RB situation: "With starting RB Marshawn Lynch holding out, Robert Turbin took the first rep with the No. 1 offense, followed by Christine Michael. Should Lynch’s holdout stretch into the regular season – and as of now, I find it hard to believe that happens – Michael is the guy to watch. He’s a powerful, explosive athlete. He didn’t know how to be a pro as a rookie, but coaches have raved about his progress in Year 2. Even if Lynch is back, Michael should get a long look as a change of pace and on third downs."
Michael is still running behind Turbin, but according to Pelissero, that shouldn't last for long. If Lynch's holdout lasts into the season, we would expect that Michael will see a significant role.
