Christine Michael visits Patriots

ESPN's Field Yates is reporting free agent running back Christine Michael visited with the New England Patriots on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

The Patriots, who placed the rare May 9 tender on LeGarrette Blount Wednesday, brought Michael in for a visit Tuesday. It's been a busy offseason for the Patriots and running backs. They appear to be stockpiling a vast amount of depth at the position. From a fantasy football perspective, Michael signing with New England is a nightmare for all parties involved, except for the Patriots. Although Blount is still expected to sign elsewhere, Michael would be a part of a crowded depth chart that already includes James White, Rex Burkhead, Dion Lewis and Mike Gillislee, upon signing with New England. He would be a better fit with a club with less depth and would certainly see more playing time as well.

Christine Michael to be cut by Green Bay

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Green Bay Packers are releasing running back Christine Michael.

Fantasy Impact

Earlier Monday, Green Bay cut ties with Don Jackson. Now, Michael is next on the chopping block leaving Ty Montgomery as the only experienced back on the roster. It appears that Montgomery and rookie Jamaal Williams will handle the running back duties for the Packers in 2017, with the former acting as the starter. Aaron Jones and Devante Mays, fifth and seventh round draft picks respectively, will round off the depth chart heading into OTAs.

Christine Michael re-signs with Green Bay

ESPN's Field Yates is reporting the Green Bay Packers have re-signed free agent running back Christine Michael on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Michael, who appeared in 15 games last season with the Seahawks and Packers, re-signed with Green Bay Wednesday. The veteran rusher accumulated a career-high 583 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground while catching 22 targets for 122 yards and another score as a receiver in 2016. However, the bulk of his production came in the first half of the year while he was still a member of the Seahawks. Due to his unknown role in the backfield next season, Michael's 2017 fantasy value is a question mark.

Christine Michael rushes for 11 yards in Packers' playoff loss

Christine Michael had six carries for 11 yards and one catch for three yards in the Packers' 44-21 loss to the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Michael entered the game in the second quarter after Ty Montgomery left the game with a rib injury. He struggled to find any holes as he danced around in the backfield. Michael will be a free agent this offseason and will look to latch onto a roster probably as a backup running back. He has limited fantasy appeal depending the team and situation he enters next season.

Christine Michael active for NFCCG

Green Bay Packers running back Christine Michael (back) is officially active for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Michael will play Sunday at Atlanta. He appeared on the injury report Saturday with a back issue but was ultimately ruled good to go during pregame. He is not a reliable DFS option for Championship Sunday as Ty Montgomery will garner the bulk of the running back duties for Green Bay.
