Michael Turner Week 12 Fantasy Football Projections

Atlanta Falcons running back Michael Turner is projected to have a big game against the Minnesota Vikings. Turner is coming off a 100-yard rushing performance last week against the Tennessee Titans and will be looking for his sixth 100-yard rushing game of the year. However, getting those 100 yards could prove difficult as the Vikings rush defense ranks ninth against the run and only allows 100.6 yards per game. However, Turner is running well right now and is averaging 105.6 yards over his last five games with four touchdowns.

With the Vikings without running back Adrian Peterson on Sunday that could actually help Turner's fantasy numbers, because if Atlanta can get out to a large lead they may slow the game down by handing the ball of to Turner to run out the clock.

According to numberFire, they see Turner as putting up the third most points for a running back this week, but being kept held 100 yards.
