Michael Turner looks to continue touchdown streaks for fantasy owners

Scott Cunningham

Atlanta Falcons running back Michael Turner has a chance to score a touchdown in a third straight game on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Atlanta Falcons running back Michael Turner has had a rough few weeks running the football but has been rewarding fantasy owners with touchdowns. Turner has scored the last two weeks for the Falcons and has also found the end zone in Atlanta's last two games at the Georgia Dome.

Turner and the Falcons face the New Orleans Saints on Thursday in Atlanta hoping to avenge their only loss of the season. In that game, the Falcons failed to score touchdowns twice in goal-to-go situations in the fourth quarter. Turner had 15 yards on 13 carries in the Week 10 loss in New Orleans.

Fantasy Impact: Turner and Jacquizz Rodgers have started to share carries in Atlanta's backfield but Turner will still get his chances around the end zone. Turner's numbers have been dismal but they would be worse if not for his three touchdowns in the last four games.

Turner remains a No. 2 fantasy running back for Week 13 but owners should not count on huge yardage totals.
