Michael Turner running well for fantasy owners early in Week 13

Scott Cunningham

Michael Turner looks like an entirely different player tonight. We break down the fantasy implications.

After dominating the first drive of the game, Michael Turner is looking like he'll finish with a solid day on the ground in Week 13. With two quarters down Turner has rushed for 71 yards and a touchdown on seven carries.

His 10.1 yards per carry is due in large part to his 35-yard scamper on his first run of the game.

Fantasy Impact: The Burner isn't receiving much love from anyone as of late, but he's still trying to prove he hasn't lost a step. Atlanta continues to divvy up the carries, with Turner leading the way once again.

He also broke the Falcons all-time touchdown record with his score in the first quarter. If they can keep creating space for him to run, Turner will easily break the 100-yard mark tonight. Hopefully you played him.
