Turbin rushed for just six yards on five carries in Sunday's preseason loss to the Lions.

Two of Turbin's five carries notably went for negative yardage. Low yards-per-carry totals are typically due to a combination of factors, including poor line play, but Turbin has been held to a 3.5 YPC or less in three of six seasons with four different teams. However, despite his mediocre track record, the veteran back is probably worth a fantasy flier in deeper formats, considering he scored eight times in 2016 despite seeing just 73 touches. Furthermore, 2017 comes both with a greater need to rest veteran Frank Gore and a shoulder injury to Turbin's primary competition, rookie Marlon Mack.
