Atlanta Falcons running back Michael Turner found the end zone early in the first quarter. We break down the fantasy implications.
Atlanta Falcons running back Michael Turner scored on the Falcons first drive of the game against the Giants. Turner got help thanks to an Asante Samuel interception of Eli Manning that gave the Falcons good field position.
Turner pounded it in from one yard out and has six carries for 21 yards and a score so far. Turner has now scored touchdowns in five consecutive games. The Falcons scored again late in the first quarter and now lead the Giants 14-0.
Fantasy Impact: Turner has seen his touches decrease in recent weeks, but has been scoring with regularity. At this point he pretty much has to score to be a fantasy difference maker, and with an early score on Sunday, he has already earned his spot in your lineup.
It's possible Turner could find the end zone again, especially if the Falcons build up a big lead and turn to the run.
