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:Michael is likely headed for the inactive list on Thursday against Green Bay. He missed Monday's practice as well with a hamstring injury. Robert Turbin is the current backup behind workhorse Marshawn Lynch.
