Atlanta Falcons running back Michael Turner was limited in practice on Friday with an elbow injury and is listed as questionable for the Falcons' game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. Turner was limited in practice all week.
Turner has started every game for the Falcons this season, but Jaquizz Rodgers has seen an increase in touches over the past couple weeks. Turner has rushed for 675 yards and seven touchdowns on the season, he has also caught 14 passes for 103 yards and a touchdown.
Fantasy Impact: Turner has touchdowns in the Falcons last three games and four touchdowns in the last five weeks. Despite the increased use of Rodgers, Turner remains the goal line back and will get any short-yardage touchdowns for the Falcons.
You will have to check back on Sunday to see if Turner is active. If he is, play him as you normally would against a weak Panthers defense.
