Atlanta Falcons running back has 54 rushing yards and two touchdowns in the first half against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He’s on pace for another terrific game after rolling up 120 yards and scoring two short touchdowns last week. This was not a surprise as he is playing the 30th-ranked rush defense in the NFL.
If Turner continues to see the carries, which is almost a guarantee with Roddy White questionable to return, he should have another huge day for his fantasy owners.
Turner had been alternating his good games with bad games this season but perhaps the bye week erased the bad week he was expected to have. In a close game, Turner is going to be important for the Falcons and he gets stronger as the game goes on. His 4.2 yards per carry is solid and he’s been close to breaking a couple of long runs today already.
