Michael Turner sees fantasy value decline with lack of playing time

Streeter Lecka

Michael Turner only played 31 percent of the snaps on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Michael Turner played just 20 of the Falcons 65 offensive snaps on Sunday against the Panthers. Jacquizz Rodgers was in for 10 more snaps than Turner, while Jason Snelling also saw 15 snaps of his owner.

Turner did score a touchdown late in the fourth quarter to pad his stats a bit. He finished with just 14 yards on seven carries.

Fantasy Impact: Rodgers has been eating into Turner's playing time over the past few weeks, and it looks like this trend will be a recurring theme going forward. The Falcons were in constant comeback mode as well, so Turner wasn't asked to run the ball often.

The Falcons face the Giants next week. Turner's value will be limited once again.
