Turbin looked really good against a good cheifs defense. with Decastro injured I would go with Turbin behind the stronger seahawks offensive line.

Any news on Lynch and the suspension? Turbin should be a good handcuff.

Honestly I like Dwyer the best.

Isaac Redman seems to come down with a new ailment every day and the games haven't even started yet. Dwyer has looked amazing, averaging 5.6 yards a carry, catching passes out of the backfield...I think he has a better path to playing time and a possible starting job in Pittsburgh. I plan on taking him real late in my last 2 drafts coming up.

Turbin is looking real good. Biggest biceps since Pittman. I dont think Marshawn will get suspended but Turbin will cut into the carries for sure.

As for Dwyer he has looked good but Mendy was taken off pup and Redman played Saturday without any pain afterwords. How many carries are there in Pitt? Not enough for 3 in my opinion.

Redman played but he was held out of practice monday, this time with an ankle injury. First it was a groin and a hip injury (that he suggested himself would be a season-long issue) and now a new ankle injury.

Just saying, watch out for Dwyer, the kid could do something. Willie Parker was once 3rd on the depth chart too and only ran for 1200 yards that season. Got him as a last round flier too while everyone was grabbing Jerome Bettis and Duce Staley.

Id go Dwyer all day and I like Turbin. I just think before it's all said and done, Mendenhall won't be right all year and Dwyer is a more talented player than Redman. I wouldn't be shocked if he were the lead back before the season is over.
