Mike Turner,Whats his value.Is he this years LJ.

Postby Crystalstorm » Mon Sep 18, 2006 8:14 am

What is Mike Turners value(he's by far the best Back-up RB in Football,that doesn't split carries).Especially to an LT owner.
Is Turner worth stashing until LT gets hurt(I see LT getting hurt sooner than later).Turner could be this years LJ.
Problem is,is that LT probably only missed 1 game since pop warner football.Is it bound to catch up with him.LT seems too durable.he even plays hurt.Cracked ribs last year.
I grabbed LJ last year,and won my league,because of him.I'm hoping for the same thing with Turner.
What does one do with Turner,especially after yesterday's big game. :-]

So you logic is that because LT2 is so durable, he is bound to get hurt soon? Manning owners beware!!! He must be due for injury as well!!!

Turner will be good (not LJ good, but good) if LT2 goes down, and LT2 could go down although there is no reason to believe he will.

Turner has minimal value right now. LT would need to suffer a season ending injury for Turner to even have a chance at being something similiar to LJ last year.

So you just picked a random backup and say that the starter will get hurt?

Turner has value in keeper leagues. He will be a UFA or RFA (not sure) next year and will probably command more on the open market than the Chargers can pay a backup.

He could be next years Chester Taylor.

Personally, If had Tomlinson then I would hancuff him with Burner Turner.

Saying that, I don't believe that Tomlinson will get hurt. Turner's value is only in blowout games or to give LT a breather.

The LJ situation was different. Priest was already 32 and had a history of injuries. So, most figured that priest wouldn't make it through the year. That combined with the fact that LJ was a beast is why he was so valuable.

This situation is different. Yes, Burner Turner would be a Top 12 back (IMO) but LT is just 27 years old and is extremely durable and is the best back in the league. In fantasy terms, he top 2 or 3 but in real life terms he is THE BEST BACK IN FOOTBALL - BAR NONE.

So, Turner has no value right now except for blowout games. The chargers blew out the raiders and Titans and that is why Turner was in. Normally, I see him getting 3-10 carries.

I love how like 70% of Turners yards came in garbage time and 50% of it came on one play now he is a fantasy stud.

Lol. I wish life were that easy...

Well, I wouldn't, "hope" for Tomlinson to get injured.

But as far as your comparison goes? Completely different situations. Tomlinson is a workhorse still in his prime. Holmes last year was considered a year or two from retirement at the start of last season and so big injury questions just related to his age.

If you want to know who might be the best bet to be this year's LJ, it's looking like Maroney.
