The Seahawks have been getting by with a pair of smurfs in Justin Forsett and Leon Washington as their backup running backs over the past two seasons but with the success of Marshawn Lynch, they decided this off-season to add a bigger back to the teamís roster. That player turned out to be Turbin, the teamís 4th round pick in this yearís draft. The Utah State product had a productive 2011 campaign and has solid size and enough speed to break long runs. With Lynchís availability for all of 2012 in question due to a summer DUI arrest, Turbin may end up starting some games in his rookie season. Monitor his performance in the preseason but consider Turbin a must-have handcuff if you select Lynch in your fantasy draft. Given Lynchís numerous off the field issues, Turbin shapes up as a solid prospect in dynasty formats.

FF Today's Take:The Seahawks added veteran running back Fred Jackson to the roster yesterday and waived the injured Robert Turbin (high ankle sprain). Undrafted Thomas Rawls also makes the team and will be third on the depth chart. The Cowboys have been lukewarm on their running back corps all preseason which now presents a muddy mess for fantasy owners. Joseph Randle and Darren McFadden will likely get first crack to secure snaps but Michael is someone to consider as a late-round flier.
