Michael Turner hasn't been phenomenal when it comes to putting up fantasy statistics this season. The Atlanta Falcons running back is doing his best to change that, however, as he's not put together four straight double-digit fantasy outings following a Week 3 stinker.
Turner was held out of the endzone for the first time in four games, but was able to gain 122 yards on 27 carries as he contributed to his team's victory over the Lions. Turner was only targeted one time in the passing game, but that isn't a surprise as he's typically done his work on the ground anyway.
Turner's had a few big games this year, but he's also been mired in the mud in a few outings. In his three games with more than 100 yards, he's averaged over five yards per carry; in his three games with fewer than 100 yards, he's been under four yards per carry. His six touchdowns have been spread over four games, though.
