Robert Turbin looked very good on Friday with with 14 carries for 93 yards and a touchdown. The Seattle Times touted Turbin as being "not just a short-yardage specialist" and Pete Carroll also praised the Utah State rookie.
Analysis: "He's a really good football player," Pete Carroll said following the game. "I'm so happy with the draft pick. We went out to get a guy who could complement Marshawn and could give us good, hard-nosed running, and he's shown exactly that." That sounds like a handcuff for fantasy purposes and the words of encouragement weren't likely sugar-coated. Turbin runs in a similar style as Marshawn Lynch and it would appear he would get most of the work in the event Lynch gets suspended or hurt. Leon Washington hasn't looked impressive and there's not much competition elsewhere. Turbin should be drafted by any owner that is willing to invest an early pick on Lynch.
