Wait, you mean SELL, right? That dude has been run into the ground just like Maurice Jones-Drew and you said to sell him! What is this!?
Whoa, whoa, bring it down a level, voice in my head.
I agree. Turner is slowing down, Matt Ryan should be throwing more and Jacquizz Rodgers is lurking behind the Gatorade tub just waiting to pounce.
So what was I saying? Oh right, BUY!
While I was perusing Average Draft Position at the various sites, I noticed Turner going as the 18th overall running back at My Fantasy League and ESPN. That is too low for a running back who has four straight 10-plus touchdown seasons and who averaged 4.5 yards a carry just last year.
But that doesn't tell the whole story, of course, so I looked a little deeper into Pro Football Focus' Signature Stats and saw that he led the league in missed tackles with 62 and was fourth in yards after contact. He also had his career high in receptions with 17.
Those aren't the numbers of a back on his last leg.
Is he a first-round pick anymore? I don't think so, but has he dropped into the mid to late third round? I also don't think so.
