Michael Turner RB ATL Aug 22 '782 Comments

Michael Turner managed just 15 yards on 13 carries at New Orleans in Week 10.

Facing the league's worst defense, Turner was stopped for no gain or negative yards on more than half of his carries. He was thrown for a loss on a pair of key 3rd-and-1 plays and failed to convert the touchdown on three separate drives inside the 1-yard line, including the potential game-winner with under two minutes remaining. An alleged power back, Turner no longer has the leg drive to succeed unless he's given an extra-wide lane to hit a big play or two each game. If the Falcons are serious about contending, Turner's playing time will have to be scaled back in favor of Jacquizz Rodgers in space and Jason Snelling between the tackles.

The blocking on a lot of his goal line carries was pathetic. But yeah that YPC avg is terrible.
