News: Seattle backup running back Robert Turbin did little in the Week 17 regular-season finale against the Rams. Turbin rushed twice in the game but finished with minus-5 yards. He added one catch for positive yardage as he went for 12 yards. He was only targeted once in the game.
Analysis: Turbin had some solid performances running behind Marshawn Lynch this season, including a 108-yard performance Week 14 against Arizona. That said, Turbin did not rush for a touchdown on the year and was mostly just a backup to Lynch. That should continue next season and definitely into the playoffs, where Turbin won't be a recommended Fantasy option.
News: Seattle running back Robert Turbin heads into Week 17 against St. Louis looking to help the Seahawks earn the NFC West title. Seattle needs help from other teams, but also needs to keep winning against the Rams. St. Louis is allowing the 15th-most Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs on the year.
Analysis: Turbin had a pretty solid performance the first time Seattle played against the Rams. That game came back in Week 4 and Turbin rushed six times for 45 yards and also caught two passes. That said, Marshawn Lynch has run wild for Seattle and Turbin is nothing but his backup. He's, at best, a flex option for Week 17.
News: Seahawks running back Robert Turbin had one of his more productive performances of the season as he totaled 58 yards during Sunday's contest against the 49ers in Week 16. Turbin didn't earn many touches but rushed for 30 yards on just three carries in a 42-13 victory. He was also involved n the passing game, as he caught two passes for 20 yards in a winning effort.
Analysis: Turbin saw some playing time during the second half once the game was entirely out of hand. He has yet to score a touchdown this season but has rushed for 169 yards in his last three games as he continues to produce for the Seahawks in each of their blowouts. He'll try to keep his production up heading into the final week of the season at home against the rams. He rushed for just 45 yards on six carries in his last meeting in Week 4. Fantasy owners should view him as a low-end option, at best, in deeper formats moving forward.
News: Seahawks running back Robert Turbin was ruled active for Sunday's contest against the 49ers at home in Week 16 despite dealing with recovering from an illness. Turbin was held to just 31 yards on the ground on 10 carries in Week 15 against the Bills. He'll face a San Francisco defense that has allowed 91.1 yards per game on the ground this season, which is the third-fewest allowed in the league. Turbin rushed for 17 yards on four carries in his previous meeting against the 49ers in Week 7.
Analysis: Turbin did appear to be in any risk of missing Sunday's contest, especially with an illness, so it's good to see him healthy enough to play in Week 16. He has yet to score a touchdown this season but has received 30 carries in his last two games and has rushed for 139 yards over that span. though he's earning more touches as of late, both of those games were blowouts, so we still expect his touches to go slightly down in competitive games. Opposing running backs have averaged 11.3 Fantasy points per game this season, which is the second-fewest allowed in the league. He has just marginal Fantasy value heading into Week 16.
News: Seahawks running back Robert Turbin was a full participant in practice for the first time this week despite recovering from an illness. He is officially listed as probable for Sunday night's contest at home against the 49ers in Week 16. Turbin was held to just 31 yards on the ground on 10 carries in Week 15 against the Bills. He'll face a San Francisco defense that has allowed 91.1 yards per game on the ground this season, which is the third-fewest allowed in the league.

News: Seahawks running back Robert Turbin will be looking to get back on track heading into a difficult matchup at home against the 49ers in Week 16. Turbin was held to just 31 yards on the ground on 10 carries in Week 15 against the Bills. He'll face a San Francisco defense that has allowed 91.1 yards per game on the ground this season, which is the third-fewest allowed in the league.

News: After rushing for a career-high 108 yards his last time out, Seahawks running back Robert Turbin was nowhere near as productive in Week 15 against the Bills. He gained 31 yards on 10 carries and also caught one pass for minus-3 yards in the 50-17 win. He had a long run of 12 and averaged 3.1 yards per carry. Turbin finished third on Seattle on rushing behind running back Marshawn Lynch (113 yards) and quarterback Russell Wilson (92 yards).
Analysis: Turbin has shown that he can be a viable contributor in Fantasy when seeing touches but with Lynch still going strong, his role will likely remain minimal down the stretch. Heading into Week 16 against the 49ers, leave the rookie for the deepest of Fantasy formats. When the division foes met earlier in the year, Turbin gained 17 yards on four carries.
News: Seahawks running back Robert Turbin saw his most extensive work this season in Week 14 against the Cardinals. The rookie gained 108 yards on 20 carries -- both career highs -- in the 58-0 blowout win. He had a long run of 26 and averaged 5.4 yards per carry. Turbin finished second on Seattle in rushing behind Marshawn Lynch (128 yards) in the victory.
Analysis: Turbin saw the majority of the playing time in the second half Sunday as Seattle had built up a huge lead. After seeing minimal work through the first 12 games, he showed owners what he can do when given an opportunity and appears to have some solid upside in Fantasy. While is role will likely remain minimal as long as Lynch is healthy, Turbin could see an increased role again next week against the Bills. If Seattle can jump out to a big lead against Buffalo, the 23-year-old would be in line for more carries but owners, especially with most in Fantasy playoffs, should leave Turbin for deeper formats for Week 15.
News: Seattle running back Robert Turbin only saw one carry in the Week 13 overtime win at Chicago Sunday. Turbin went for 6 yards in the game. He was not targeted in the passing game. Third-string back Michael Robinson rushed once for 4 yards. Robinson added two catches for 17 yards, however, in the passing game.
Analysis: Turbin has been nothing more than a handcuff to Marshawn Lynch for most of the season. Lynch is running well right now and Turbin is not going to be a recommended Fantasy option unless something happens to the starter. Turbin should not be used in most Fantasy leagues for Week 14 against Arizona.
News: Seattle running back Robert Turbin recorded seven carries for 17 yards during the Seahawks' 28-7 loss to the Jets in Week 10. Despite a season high in rushing attempts, Turbin posted a lackluster average of 2.4 yards per carry -- his second-lowest output when toting the ball at least once. He also finished without a reception for the third time this season as he went without a target from quarterback Russell Wilson.
Analysis: Despite Marshawn Lynch appearing on the injury report with back and wrist issues, he didn't appear to be limited in any regard and amassed 124 yards on a season-high 27 carries. That spelled bad news for Turbin, who netted a long gain of just five yards against a Jets defense that ranks near the bottom of the league in defending the run. At this point, Turbin should only be viewed strictly as a handcuff option for Lynch.
News: With starting running back Marshawn Lynch hobbled by a lingering back injury and a recently revealed wrist issue, Seattle running back Robert Turbin could receive a larger share of touches in the backfield during Week 10 against the Jets. Turbin has not recorded more than five carries since Week 4 against St. Louis -- the only time this season he surpassed that mark. The rookie out of Utah State is averaging 4.3 yards per carry, but has been held scoreless over nine games this season.
Analysis: Lynch has maintained his spot among the league's rushing leaders throughout the season, which has left just scraps for Turbin. He has exceeded 30 yards in a game only once, and has nearly as many receiving yards (105) as rushing yards (150), so he's clearly not breaking loose in his limited chances. The Jets are permitting an average of 20.2 Fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers this year, but have allowed just two touchdowns to the position over their past three games. Consider Turbin a flex option only in deeper Fantasy formats as Seattle could still rely heavily on a limited Lynch.
News: Seahawks running back Robert Turbin had another quiet game behind Marshawn Lynch in Week 9 against the Vikings. He gained 21 yards on five carries and also caught a 9-yard pass in the 30-20 win. He had a long run of 12 and averaged 4.2 yards per rush. Turbin finished third on Seattle in rushing behind Lynch (124 yards) and quarterback Russell Wilson (27 yards) in the victory.
Analysis: Turbin is averaging 4.3 yards per carry in his first season out of Utah State but continues to see minimal touches on a weekly basis because of Lynch. Things aren't likely to change as long as Lynch is healthy, which leaves the 22-year-old as more of a handcuff option in Fantasy. That being the case, keep Turbin reserved in the majority of Fantasy formats for Week 10 against the Jets.
News: During Seattle's loss at Detroit in Week 8, running back Robert Turbin eclipsed 40 total yards when he finished with 42 combined yards from scrimmage. That number doesn't seem like a gaudy amount, but it represented a small consolation for Turbin as he had exceeded the 40-yard mark only two other times during his first seven games of the season. He will attempt to build off that modest momentum during Week 9 against Minnesota, which is permitting just 107.6 yards on the ground per game to opponents this season.
Analysis: Turbin's numbers continue to be held in check as Marshawn Lynch remains the primary -- and nearly exclusive -- option in the Seahawks' backfield. The rookie out of Utah State has not exceeded more than four carries in three of his past four games, and has nearly as many rushing yards (129) as receiving (96). The Vikings have been stout against the run this season and are allowing an average of 13.2 Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. Turbin should be viewed as a last-resort flex option only in deeper Fantasy formats for Week 9.
News: Seahawks running back Robert Turbin gained a total of 42 yards on Sunday against the Lions, carrying the ball four times for 14 yards and catching two passes for an additional 28 yards.
Analysis: Turbin spelled Marshawn Lynch at the end of the first half, gaining 27 total yards on a drive that eventually ended with a Steven Hauschka 61-yard missed field goal. This may have just been to give Lynch -- who had been dealing with back issues this week -- a bit of an extended rest leading into the half . Or it could have been to give the team an up-tempo back to get into field goal range. Whatever the case, Turbin remains little more than a handcuff to Lynch, and is best left to waiver wires and benches in most Fantasy formats.
News: Seahawks running back Robert Turbin was limited to just four rushes for 17 yards in a 13-6 loss to the 49ers Thursday. Turbin had a chance to break a big play in the first half, but he dropped a deep pass down the sideline. He finished Week 7 with no catches for the first time since Week 4.
Analysis: Turbin entered the season with lofty expectations, as a third-down back and even possibly as a starter when Marshawn Lynch got into trouble in the offseason. Lynch has been able to stay on the field, which has killed any chances for Turbin to make noise. He just topped the 100-yard mark for the season in Week 7. Barring an injury to Lynch, Turbin will remain in a reserve role moving forward. Consider him a risky Fantasy start in Week 8 against Detroit.
News: Seattle running back Robert Turbin will look to improve upon his 27 rushing yards he amassed last week against the Patriots when he takes the field Week 7 at San Francisco. Unfortunately, it will be tough to do against the tough 49ers defense. San Francisco is giving up the second-fewest Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs on the season.
Analysis: Turbin continues to back up Marshawn Lynch for Seattle and has not rushed for more than 45 yards in a game this season or scored a touchdown. The 49ers have an excellent defense and we doubt that Turbin will be worth using outside the deepest of Fantasy formats for Week 7.
News: Seahawks running back Robert Turbin totaled 48 yards in Week 6 against the Patriots. He gained 27 yards on five carries and also caught two passes for 21 yards in the 24-23 win.
Analysis: Turbin continues to see minimal work behind Marshawn Lynch in Seattle but could do some serious damage if Lynch were to ever go down. Continue to stash the rookie away in deeper Fantasy formats as a handcuff option heading into Week 7 against the 49ers.
News: Seahawks running back Robert Turbin has rushed for just 71 yards behind Marshawn Lynch so far this season and could be in for another slow performance in Week 6 against the Patriots. New England ranks eighth in the league in run defense, giving up under 83 yards per contest, and has allowed an average of 11.6 Fantasy points to opposing running backs.
Analysis: Turbin has shown flashes of being a viable option in Fantasy but as long as Lynch is healthy, his role will remain minimal. Now is not the time to get the rookie active so keep him reserved in the majority of leagues for Week 6. Turbin remains a solid handcuff option, however.
News: Seattle running back Robert Turbin recorded 14 total yards from scrimmage during the Seahawks' 16-12 win over Carolina in Week 5. Turbin placed as the team's fourth-leading rusher as he posted just six yards on four attempts. He also had two catches for eight yards on two targets from quarterback Russell Wilson. Marshawn Lynch paced Seattle with 85 yards on 21 carries -- his fifth straight game with 20-plus attempts.
Analysis: Turbin garnered a season-high 45 yards against the Rams last week, but returned to his more modest production on Sunday and produced an average of just 1.5 yards per carry. He now has failed to surpass 3.0 yards an attempt in four of his five games this season while still searching for his first touchdown. At this point, his highest Fantasy value is as a handcuff to Lynch.
News: Seahawks running back Robert Turbin is looking to make the best out of his touches as he hopes to build off a career performance last week heading into Week 5 against on the against the Panthers. Turbin rushed for 45-yards on six carries against the Rams in Week 4 and will encounter a Carolina defense that has permitted just over 134 yards per game this season.
Analysis: Turbin showed some flashes of brilliance in the preseason but will unfortunately take the backseat to Marshawn Lynch, who is the leading rusher in the NFL after four weeks. Turbin averages six touches per game but has yet to score double-digit points in Fantasy. Fantasy owners should view him as just a handcuff option heading into Week 5.
News: Seahawks running back Robert Turbin rushed for a career-high 45 yards on six carries Week 4 at St. Louis. Turbin's longest carry went 13 yards, as he averaged 7.5 yards per carry. Turbin added two catches for 13 yards.
Analysis: Turbin showed in the preseason he can be a successful back in the NFL. Unfortunately, he sits behind one of the top running backs in the NFL in Marshawn Lynch, who rushed for 118 yards Sunday. As long as Lynch is healthy, then Turbin will get minimal touches per week. He is just a handcuff Fantasy option heading into Week 5 against the Panthers.
News: Seahawks running back Robert Turbin did not see much of the field in Week 3 against the Packers. Turbin did not register a carry or catch for the first time all season in the 14-12 win. Marshawn Lynch led the team with 98 yards on the ground.
Analysis: Turbin appears to be more of a long-term project for the Seahawks as he hasn't seen many snaps thus far. That is unlikely to change while Lynch is healthy, so owners should continue leave the 22-year-old reserved in all formats heading into Week 4 at St. Louis.
News: Seahawks running back Robert Turbin has gained just 20 yards on the ground through the first two games and could be in for another slow performance in Week 3 against the Packers. Green Bay ranks 26th in the league in run defense, giving up 140 yards per game, and has allowed an average of 17 Fantasy points to opposing running backs.
Analysis: Turbin continues to see minimal touches behind Marshawn Lynch in Seattle and that trend will likely continue as long as Lynch is healthy. While the rookie remains a viable handcuff option, plan on keeping him reserved in the majority Fantasy formats for Week 3.
News: Seahawks running back Robert Turbin made the most of his touches in Week 2 against the Cowboys. He gained 15 yards on five carries and also caught two passes for 24 yards in the 27-7 win. Turbin finished third on Seattle in rushing behind running back Marshawn Lynch (122 yards) and quarterback Russell Wilson (28 yards).
Analysis: Turbin continues to see minimal work behind Lynch in Seattle and that should not change as long as the workhorse of the offense is healthy. The rookie has some low-end appeal as a handcuff option but should remain reserved in the majority of Fantasy formats heading into Week 3 against the Packers. Have Turbin active solely in rookie-only formats against Green Bay.
News: Seahawks running back Robert Turbin did not see many carries behind Marshawn Lynch in his NFL debut and is expected to be in for another slow game in Week 2 against the Cowboys. He gained just 5 yards on two carries and also hauled in a 2-yard catch in the season opener. Dallas allowed 82 yards rushing in their season opener and surrendered 13 Fantasy points to opposing running backs.
Analysis: Turbin ran for 165 yards with a touchdown during the preseason to become the No. 2 running back in Seattle but is not a huge part of the offense at this point. As long as Lynch is healthy that won't change so his value in Fantasy is mainly as a handcuff option. Plan on leaving Turbin reserved in the majority of Fantasy formats for Week 2.
News: Though the Seahawks were expected to split carries in Week 1 between Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin, Turbin received just two carries and barely saw the field in a 20-16 loss. Turbin ran for 5 yards in the game, and was not a contributor in the passing game either.
Analysis: Fantasy owners had solid expectations for the rookie out of Utah State entering the season, especially given Lynchs lingering injury issues and off-field troubles, but if Sunday is any indication, he is going to be squeezed out in the rotation. Lynch has proven himself to be a legitimate No. 1 running back in the NFL, so as long as he is healthy, Turbin may not see much of the field. He is still worth holding on to as a handcuff option for Lynch, but Fantasy owners should not plan on relying on Turbin in Week 2 against the Cowboys.
News: Starter Marshawn Lynch will take his spot in the starting lineup in Week 1 against the Cardinals, relegating Robert Turbin to a backup role after he spent much of the week practicing with the first team.
Analysis: Against the 21st ranked rushing defense from last season, we quite liked Turbin as a handcuff option for Lynch owners who were worried about his balky back. Turbin should still see the field plenty this week, but he is going to be the second option in the rushing game, so Fantasy owners might want to go with a more dependable option in Week 1. He is just a low-end starting option with Lynch active.
News: With starter Marshawn Lynch still contending with back spasms, Seahawks backup running back Robert Turbin practiced with the first team Wednesday in anticipation of Week 1 at Arizona. According to the Everett Herald, the Seahawks won't make a decision on Lynch's status for the game until the end of the week.
Analysis: Turbin, a rookie, had a big preseason for the Seahawks, ranking eighth among rushers with 165 yards. If Lynch is out, he'll be the one carrying the load in Week 1, and his matchup couldn't be much better. The Cardinals ranked 21st against the run last year, allowing 124.1 yards per game. Whether you own Lynch or not, you'll want have Turbin on your roster for the increasingly likely event that Lynch misses the game. The rookie will be a sneaky starter in Fantasy if that's the case.
News: Seahawks running back Robert Turbin got some looks with the first-team offense again during Thursday's preseason finale against the Raiders. Turbin broke for a five-yard gain on the team's first play on offense as he finished with four carries for 14 yards, averaging just 3.5 yards per run. He was involved in just the first two series on offense before he sat out the remainder of the game. Turbin finished with 38 rushes for 165 yards, as he was the third leading rusher during the exhibition season.
Analysis: Turbin could have a prominent role in Seattle's running game, especially if Lynch is suspended for a few games due to his legal troubles. If Lynch returns from a possible suspension, Turbin will back him up. He continues to show that he can carry the load if the Seahawks need to rely on him. He is worth drafting with a late-round pick in all standard leagues and as a possible handcuff option with some upside.
News: With Marshawn Lynch out again, the Seahawks turned to rookie running back Robert Turbin in Friday's preseason contest against the Chiefs. Turbin did not disappoint in his role with the first-team offense as he broke for a 25-yard run for a touchdown in the third quarter in a 44-14 blowout victory over the Chiefs. He finished with 14 carries for 93 yards and a touchdown, averaging 6.6 yards per carry. He was barely involved in the passing game as he made one catch for no gain.
Analysis: Turbin could have a prominent role in Seattle's rushing attack if Lynch sidelined during the season at any point because of legal issues. He continues to shine during preseason as he has 151 yards on 34 carries through his first three preseason games as he continues to show that he is ready to carry the load if needed. He is worth drafting in the later rounds on Draft Day as a handcuff option with upside.
News: With Marshawn Lynch inactive, the Seahawks turned to rookie running back Robert Turbin in Saturdays preseason opener against the Titans, and the returns were less-than promising. The 22-year-old out of Utah State rushed for just 24 yards on 10 carries, while catching three balls for nine yards, as the Seahawks won, 27-17.
Analysis: Turbin is expected to get the majority of the carries if Lynchs offseason legal trouble sidelines him during the season, but he did not do much to inspire confidence in his first chance. The only good sign was that he was clearly the one back Seattle relied on more than any other initially, which seems to indicate that he is the first option if Lynch misses any time. Turbin should get more chances in the preseason moving forward, so Fantasy owners should plan on targeting him in the later rounds on Draft Day as a handcuff option with upside.
News: The Tacoma News Tribune reports that Seattle rookie running back Robert Turbin is ready if needed this year to play a prominent role because of the uncertainty of Marshawn Lynchs status to begin the season. Lynch faces DUI charges in his hometown in Oakland, and could possibly face a suspension at the beginning of the season. Turbin says he does not feel any pressure if Lynch cant go to begin the season. Nope, Turbin said. Theres no pressure. This is what I do. Im a rookie, but Im a professional football player right now, you know what I mean? So Ive got to do my job. And my job is to right now back up Marshawn Lynch, or back up Leon (Washington). And so when my opportunity comes to get on the field, I have to just do my job and take advantage of the opportunity.
Analysis: There is a strong chance Lynch won't face a suspension in 2012, but continue to monitor what develops. If Lynch is out for any period of time then Turbin could see a big boost in production. He is worth drafting with a late-round pick in all standard leagues and a third-round selection in rookie-only drafts.
News: The Tacoma News Tribune reports that the Seahawks have been impressed with rookie running back Robert Turbin already, and he could be a candidate to start the season opener on Sept. 9 at Arizona. With Marshawn Lynch recently arrested and charged with drunken driving in his hometown of Oakland, Turbin could be pressed into service sooner rather than later. Lynch, 26, has two prior incidents and could be suspended by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell under the leagues personal conduct policy. But unlike last season, when the Seahawks depended on lighter backs such as Justin Forsett and Leon Washington to shoulder the load when Lynch was out which likely cost them a win at Cleveland at 5-10 and 222 pounds Turbin can mimic Lynchs bruising running style. You see the physical style that he has thats what we want, Seattle running backs coach Sherman Smith said about Turbin. And thats what Roberts going to be.
Analysis: Turbin has been dubbed the SeaHulk for his fondness for the Incredible Hulk and his bulging biceps. While he won't replace Lynch directly in terms of production if Lynch is out, we could see him play a prominent role if there is a suspension. We consider Turbin worth a late-round flier even if Lynch is not suspended, but if Lynch is forced to miss extended action then Turbin's value will skyrocket.
News: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was arrested early Saturday morning in Oakland on suspicion of DUI. No charges have been filed but a suspension by the NFL is likely. That opens the door for Seahawks rookie running back Robert Turbin and veterans Leon Washington and Kregg Lumpkin to split Lynch's reps while he's suspended (we think he'll be sidelined at least four games). Washington is a speedster who has done more damage on special teams than on offense since arriving in Seattle while Turbin, a fourth-round pick, missed all of the 2010 season with a torn right ACL but bounced back in 2011 by rushing for 1,517 yards and 19 touchdowns in helping Utah State to a bowl game. Lumpkin has 449 total yards in four seasons.
Analysis: We love Turbin's upside as he's far more versatile than Washington and is better than Lumpkin. Training camp will sort out just how much work these guys get, but the potential in Turbin makes him the most appealing in Fantasy drafts. We'd take Turbin with a middle- to late-round pick, especially if you draft Lynch with a choice earlier. Washington is more of a late-round choice in standard formats. Lumpkin isn't worth a pick for now.
News: The Seahawks official team website reports that rookie running back Robert Turbin, a fourth-round draft choice from Utah State, has already showed he can catch the ball out of the backfield. If hes able to pick up the blitz as a blocker, Turbin could be the third-down back, in addition to complementing leading rusher Marshawn Lynch. Too early to tell, coach Peter Carroll said when asked about Turbin replacing Justin Forsett as the third-down back. Thats stuff that has to be determined. He has not had to block a lot in pass protection, but Ill be shocked if he doesnt. Hes perfectly suited to do that and he didnt look far off, technique-wise. So hes just got to get guys roaring downhill at him and well see.
Analysis: Turbin is the likely handcuff option to Lynch. He will compete for backup duties with Kregg Lumpkin, but Turbin might have more upside. Keep an eye on what happens with his role this offseason, but Turbin could be worth a late-round pick in seasonal leagues and mid-round pick in rookie-only formats.
News: The Seahawks took Utah State running back Robert Turbin with a fourth-round pick in the NFL Draft. Turbin missed all of the 2010 season with a torn right ACL but bounced back in 2011 by rushing for 1,517 yards and 19 touchdowns in helping the Aggies to a bowl game. He's listed at 5-foot-10, 222 pounds.
Analysis: Turbin fits the mold of the big, burly running back the Seahawks lack behind starter Marshawn Lynch. Frankly, they lack any quality depth behind Lynch, but they have it now. Turbin doesn't have ridiculous speed but for a big guy he's not bad. The torn ACL he suffered clearly scared off some teams. We doubt Turbin will command a lot of playing time but he could steal some work here and there from Lynch -- just not enough to hurt Fantasy owners. Assuming he lands as the Seahawks' primary backup rusher, he's worth a late pick in seasonal leagues as a handcuff to Lynch, a middle- to late-round pick in dynasty/keeper leagues and a third-round pick in rookie-only drafts.
