Saints- Falcons: Michael Turner Runs Well in Loss | NFL Fantasy Player Rankings
This was a big matchup for both teams as the Saints and Falcons clashed for supremacy in the NFC South. In the end, the Saints would hold onto win the football game but the Falcons gave them everything they could handle.
Michael Turner Turns on the Burners
Fantasy football owners with Michael Turner have waited for him to breakout all season. While Turner had seven touchdowns coming into this game he really only had one big week against the 49ers before this contest.
For the game Turner rushed for over 150 yards on only twenty carries and posted another touchdown. What was nice to see from Turner was that he consistently broke of long runs from the start of the game to the end.
This performance was a great sign for Turner’s chances to have a strong second half of the fantasy season.
Hopefully, Turner can continue his strong performance next week against the struggling Redskins.
Pierre Thomas Breaks Out
The past few weeks have puzzled fantasy football owners with Pierre Thomas on their teams.
Thomas has failed to produce and the team seems to be content with running Mike Bell, Reggie Bush and Thomas as a three man committee.
In this contest Thomas scored on the ground and through the air. He also had more than 90 yards rushing.
This is the kind of production fantasy owners need from Thomas going forward if they are to make it to the playoffs.
