Bryce Brown didn't touch the ball in Seattle's Wild Card win over the Vikings.

Brown's committee with Christine Michael was shuttered after three games, as the 'Hawks committed to C-Mike. Even if Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) remains sidelined for the Divisional Round, Brown won't be on the board as a DFS punt play.
Jan 10 - 4:56 PM

Bryce Brown rushed 10 times for 20 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 17 win over the Cardinals.

Brown vultured Christine Michael in the first quarter, but got out-touched 17-10 by C-Mike, and out-gained 102-20. It will be Michael who gets the first shot at the "hot hand" in the playoffs if Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) isn't ready to go. It's even possible Brown could lose his roster spot.
Jan 3 - 8:14 PM

Bryce Brown rushed seven times for nine yards in the Seahawks' Week 16 loss to the Rams.

Brown was held without a catch in the passing game on one target. Brown came off the bench behind Christine Michael, but actually out-carried him 7-6. Michael finished with one more touch. Neither back was impressive against the Rams' resurgent defense, and with their timeshare a total crapshoot, both will be off the DFS radar in Week 17 against the Cardinals.

Bryce Brown rushed nine times for 43 yards Week 15 against the Browns.

Brown made some nice runs and was the clear second option to Christine Michael in the second half, but Michael took hold of the lead back role in the second quarter and did not look back. Michael finished with 16 carries to Brown's nine and will be the favorite to start next week against the Rams. Brown still needs to be held, but he will not be a starting option next week.

ESPN Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia said Bryce Brown is the "favorite" to lead the backfield in touches down the stretch.

Kapadia cautions Brown is far from a sure thing but said he "should get the first shot at carrying the load." Christine Michael would be the next logical option, but Kapadia believes it is possible he is not even active for Week 15. Fred Jackson will handle third-down work, and Derrick Coleman is unlikely to be heavily involved. Brown is the only option worth using in must-win situations, and he is a risky RB3/FLEX option at best.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said all three of Bryce Brown, Christine Michael and Derrick Coleman will get carries.

Carroll added, "You'll find out at game time how we're going to do it." With Fred Jackson also in the mix on third downs, this is shaping up as a nightmare situation for fantasy owners. Scout.com's Rob Rang expects the Seahawks to use a "hot hand" approach, and Carroll also hinted that would be the plan. Brown should get the first shot to develop the "hot hand," but how the carries are divvied up after that is anyone's guess. Brown is a risky FLEX play while Michael and Coleman are too unpredictable to use in a must-win situation.

Scout.com's Rob Rang expects the Seahawks to use a "hot hand" approach at running back in Week 15 against the Browns, with Bryce Brown getting the first crack at lead back work.

Rang -- a longtime Seattle insider -- concedes this is merely his "educated guess." He foresees the Seahawks using "multiple backs," but Brown getting the "first opportunity," and if Brown "performs as expected, he'll get the bulk of the carries, including near the goal line." Rang believes projecting Christine Michael or FB Derrick Coleman to log more than five carries "is risky." Brown has high upside in a plus matchup against a weak Cleveland run defense. He's best viewed as a boom-bust flex play in fantasy semifinals week.

Bryce Brown is in line to be the Seahawks' Week 15 starter at running back.

Coach Pete Carroll said Brown would compete with DuJuan Harris, but Harris was waived on Tuesday. Brown is now in the driver's season to see in the neighborhood of 15-20 carries against the Browns' bottom-feeding run defense. Carroll has said veteran Fred Jackson will continue to serve in a change-of-pace role. Cancel your Harris waiver claims and change them to Brown.

Seahawks signed RB Bryce Brown.

Brown has had two separate stints with Seattle this season but has yet to play in a game. That should change with Thomas Rawls headed to injured reserve with a broken ankle. Talented but enigmatic, Brown is a great fit for the "what if" backup role once dominated by Christine Michael. The difference is Brown may actually see carries. DuJuan Harris will get the first crack at the lead role, but he was underwhelming against Baltimore last week and has just 80 career carries to his name. Seattle needs Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) back as soon as possible.
Mon, Dec 14, 2015 12:54:00 PM

The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta believes Seattle will considering adding free agent RBs Bryce Brown and Kendall Hunter with Thomas Rawls (ankle) done for the year.

Brown has spent time on the Seahawks roster this season, and Hunter worked out for the team last month. Montee Ball, Marion Grice and the ghost of Christine Michael, who is currently on the Redskins practice squad, could also be options. DuJuan Harris rushed for 42 yards on 18 carries after Rawls left against the Ravens, and he should be given the first crack at lead back duties no matter who Seattle signs.

Seahawks waived RB Bryce Brown.

Brown’s spot was needed with CB Jeremy Lane returning. It’s the second time he’s been cut by Seattle. Brown could be re-signed next week.

Seahawks re-signed RB Bryce Brown.

It's the latest sign that Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) will miss Week 12. Brown slots in behind Thomas Rawls and Fred Jackson.

Seahawks waived RB Bryce Brown.

With Bruce Irvin (MCL) sidelined, LB Eric Pinkins was promoted to the active roster. The move suggests Seattle fully expects Marshawn Lynch (questionable, abdomen) to play this week. 24-year-old Brown should resurface as a No. 3 back.

Seahawks signed RB Bryce Brown.

QB B.J. Daniels was waived in a corresponding roster move. Six weeks after getting waived by the Bills, Brown has finally found a new home. Still only 24, Brown has freakish athleticism, but lacks feel as a runner. He's had ball-security issues his entire football playing career, and too often bounces runs outside. He's just a flier for the Seahawks. His time on the 53-man roster could be brief.
