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.
Turbin gained 35 yards on five carries. He also hauled in one ball for 14 yards. Michael received four carries, gaining 16 yards. He was not a factor in the passing game.
Both players will look for more Week 10 against the Giants.
Setting your lineup has been pretty easy to this point, right? I mean, it may not seem like it, but with no more than two teams on bye in any of the last four weeks, you haven't had to scramble to fill a roster spot like you might have in years past.
Which means Week 9 could be quite a shock to you ... and everyone else playing Fantasy Football. A full six teams are on bye, which probably impacts most every roster in some way.
If you didn't prepare for it, you'll have to resort to the waiver wire, which is slim pickings this late in the week, especially at running back. This may be one of those weeks where you have to turn to a backup -- in a real-life sense, that is -- to give your team a chance.
Looking over their Week 9 rankings, Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard like several backups enough to start them this week, if only in a desperate situation. The
Of course, if you have a shot at a fill-in starter like Andre Williams or Bobby Rainey instead, that's probably the preferred way to go, but not everyone is so lucky.
