RB Michael Turner NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Michael Turner is probably the best pure touchdown maker in all of fantasy football and a skill was important early in the season. In Turner’s first six games, he only totaled one game over a hundred yards, but he did score seven touchdowns.
After that Turner was back to his old trick as he had huge games against the Saints and Redskins before he suffered a high ankle sprain against the Panthers. Even in that game Turner racked up 111 yards rushing in the first quarter as he look primed for a huge second half of the season.
Unfortunately, the Falcons’ coaching staff was too eager to get Turner back on the field (twice) and let him play before the ankle was truly ready. Because of this Turner easily reinjured his ankle both times he tried to make a comeback. This hurt many fantasy owners as they didn’t have their stud player, and it was even worse if they rushed him into lineups on the games he tried to come back.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: In OTA’s Turner came out publicly and admitted that he was out of shape last offseason and that was why he looked slow early on. At this time, Turner’s ankle is fully healed, and he’s reported to be in tip top shape as we head into the summer.
While the team will try to keep him under 300 carries this season, I believe he will go over that mark as the team makes a playoff push through the final months of the season. Matt Ryan is ready to take on more of the offensive load but Turner is still a beast when healthy.
As long as Turner is on the field for most of the season, he should carry help carry fantasy owners into the playoffs and give them good production in the final weeks.
