Fantasy Football, Week 3: Michael Turner Is Good To Go

In Week 2 of the NFL season RB Michael Turner exited the Falcons game with a groin injury after just nine carries with. The Falcons were leading in a blowout so there was some thought that he didn't return because of the "mild" groin injury.

Though the Falcons said he was fine, there was some concern he would be limited in Week 3.

On Wednesday, the Falcons listed him as a limited participant in practice and by Thursday, he was upgraded to a full participant. Falcons head coach Mike Smith has said he's good to go.

It looks like Turner will be a solid fantasy play on Sunday against the 19th ranked run defense of the Saints.

And with the news that Turner is healthy, we say goodbye to one-week fantasy superstar Jason Snelling. He replaced Turner in the Falcons lineup to the tune of 186 total yards and three touchdowns.

Oh, and Snelling was the NFC player of the week, too.
