The Colts and Turbin agreed to a contract Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

In his first three seasons with the Seahawks, Turbin established himself a decent handcuff for Marshawn Lynch, accumulating at least 250 yards rushing on each occasion. Turbin was also adept as a pass-catcher with 43 receptions (on 55 targets) for 427 yards and two touchdowns during that span. However, he suffered a high-ankle sprain at the end of the preseason and was promptly waived a few days later before he was plucked by the Browns. Making 10 appearances with Cleveland and Dallas thereafter, he managed nearly 4.0 yards per carry and 2.3 yards per target on 5.7 touches per game, meaning the best-case scenario in Indianapolis is likely a change-of-pace role behind Frank Gore.

Turbin carried the ball five times for 23 yards and failed to catch his only target in Sunday's loss to the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Darren McFadden has been producing as the starting RB for the Cowboys over the last few weeks, leaving few touches available for Turbin. A free agent in the offseason, the former Seahawk may not have done enough to warrant a return to Dallas in 2016.

Turbin carried the ball seven times for 51 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

He split the backfield workload almost evenly with Darren McFadden, and Turbin continues to see the majority of short-yardage work. He'll have a tough matchup Saturday against the Jets, however, making him a very risky play even in formats that emphasize TDs.

Turbin ran the ball six times for 12 yards Monday, and caught his only two targets for an additional 12 yards.

EDGE Analysis

The bulk of his touches came when Darren McFadden was briefly out of the game being checked for a possible concussion, but Turbin didn't do much with his opportunities. He'll remain in a backup role unless something happens to McFadden.

Turbin gained 35 yards on seven carries and caught one of two targets for three yards in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

The 25-year-old looked sprightly in his Dallas debut, gashing Miami for five yards per carry in support of Darren McFadden. Turbin appears to have already earned the top backup nod, as no other back received a carry on the day, and he should still see a few touches per week as the Cowboys try to remain balanced on offense. Next on the schedule is a Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Panthers.

Turbin will likely be the next man in line for carries Sunday if Darren McFadden (groin) is limited, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Turbin was signed this week after being waived by the Browns and was already expected to be active for Sunday's contest, but with McFadden's status in question due to a groin issue, he appears to have quickly ascended the pecking order for carries in Dallas' backfield. McFadden is expected to play; however, the forecast is calling for a rainy day in Miami on Sunday, and that slick track could be a cause for concern for McFadden.

Turbin will be active for Sunday's game in Miami, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Signed earlier in the week, Turbin reportedly worked relentlessly to learn enough of the playbook to allow for active status. He still doesn't figure to have much of a role from the get-go, but it won't be surprising if he emerges as Darren McFadden's (groin) primary backup. There is some chance Turbin could be forced into a larger role than expected, if McFadden's minor injury flares up during Sunday's game.

Turbin will sign with the Cowboys, the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

He becomes the third former Seahawks running back to join the Cowboys this season, alongside Rod Smith and the now-released Christine Michael. Turbin could eventually work his way into being Darren McFadden's main backup, but isn't likely to see many touches right away.

Turbin was waived by the Browns on Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Turbin missed the first five weeks of the season due to a variety of injuries, however the 25-year-old did manage to return in Week 6 and promptly carried the ball 10 times for 27 yards. Things didn't get much better in the following weeks as the former Seahawks running back managed to amass just eight carries for 33 yards in Week's 7 and 8, prompting the Browns to waive him in favor of offensive lineman Darrian Miller, who they promoted off the practice squad in a corresponding move. Turbin will likely get a look from a few teams interested in building depth at the running back position, but for now his fantasy value remains minimal.

Turbin had three carries for three yards in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Cleveland was held to just 39 rushing yards in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, continuing a maddening performance on offense in the Browns' run game. Turbin has been splitting carries with Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson thus far, and this trend will most likely continue for the duration of the season. Until any one of the three main Cleveland backs prove they are head and shoulders better than the man next to him, their workload will probably be diminished by the other two.
