Starting to worry about Turner...

Postby radiohead625 » Mon Oct 04, 2010 10:38 am

Hes had only one good game outta 4... i was really excited about my running backs being turner, charles, and foster, but now im a little sketchy on turner. Especially since my receiving corp is kinda crappy with roddy white, wes welker, steve smith(nyg), and louis murphy. Is turner gonna turn this around?

I don't know how many teams are in your league, but that looks like a solid receiver corps to me.

Don't know what to dell you about Turner, though.

12 in my league and these guys havent really produced besides white and welker the first week... could turner be somewhat of a bust this year?

as long as turner gets fed the ball 20+ times a game..he will be a top 10 RB

unless he is really slowing down

White, Welker is not a bad receiving core by any means... and having Steve Smith/Louis Murphy as a WR3 is not bad at all...

that's an excellent receiving corps.

Jason Snelling is my main concern as a Turner owner. With Snelling so effective both running and catching the ball he's going to remain a part of the offense.

Turner's still running well but he has had some tough matchups so far which has limited his efficiency. The problem for fantasy players is that he's just not going to get the ball 377 times this season like he did in 2008.

I own Turner in 2 leagues, but I'm not especially worried. He hasn't played to my initial expectations, but look at his schedule- he played @Pitt week 1, got unjured, had a big game against NO then ran into SF. The upcoming schedule- @Cle, @Phi (see Wash game), vCin, BYE, vTB.

He gets Bal, @StL, vGB, then it's smooth sailing- @TB, @Car, @Sea, vNO.
