The Fantasy Football season is almost upon us, and many leagues are already holding their drafts. For those who have already done so, then this article will not help you all that much.

Does Michael Turner Fit In?

I’m not sure if I fit in with these guys Juan… The Falcons for the last four seasons have been a power running team that sets up the pass with the run.  That was under Mike Mularkey.  Michael Turner has enjoyed double digit TDs for 4 straight seasons as the workhorse RB.  Times are changing.  New OC Dirk Koetter is ready to open this thing up and start throwing the rock....
