Both players will hope for more Week 15 against the 49ers.
Turbin grabbed a short pass to the left and was able to work his way towards the end zone and maintain his balance to score a 13-yard touchdown that put his team up 7-0 in the first quarter. The Seahawks would pile on two field goals before halftime in a game where the 49ers had virtually no answers for the Seattle defense. Turbin's touchdown was just his second of the season and his first since Week 2. He'll match up with the Eagles in Week 14.
Turbin gained 11 yards on four carries. Michael received one carry, but lost 2 yards on the play. Both players will take on the Cardinals Week 12.
The Giants had trouble slowing any of the Seahawks' runners down Sunday, and Michael gashed them for 71 yards on just four carries. Turbin was only slightly less effective, rushing for 32 yards on six carries, while starter Marshawn Lynch ran all over the Giants for four touchdowns and 140 yards on 21 carries.
Both Turbin and Michael have clear upside, but Lynch really doesn't seem to be going anywhere -- this season. As handcuffs, both players might have some value in yearly leagues, but there are mostly best left for keeper leagues at this point.
Michael and Turbin came on in relief of Marshawn Lynch, who was so effective that he got some rest early. Neither player disappointed. Michael received just four carries, but managed 71 yards. He helped set up the team's final touchdown of the day with a 45 yard run. Turbin carried six times, gaining 32 yards.
