Should Vikings FB Jerome Felton expect a different or decreased role with Norv Turner running the offense?

It’s a fair question considering the Browns, whose offense Turner coordinated last season, used two-back formations on just 5.2 percent of their snaps in 2013, according to Pro Football Focus. That was one of the lowest figures in the league, though the Browns didn’t exactly have a bruiser like Felton -- or any established fullback for that matter -- and they also played from behind a lot.

The Vikings used two backs on 24.1 percent of their snaps a season ago. That’s why Turner is saying that the Felton should still have a role here.

“He is going to have to block and block,” Turner said. “We talked the other night to our team, we need to have a physical presence. Jerome brings that type of presence, and we are still going to have a certain percentage of two backs in the backfield, or spread out with the two backs in the backfield, that personnel group, if it gives the team problems. ... I think that there’s game situations where you need to have a fullback that can go pound it a little bit.”

Fantasy Impact:

The fantasy news here is Felton could help pave the way for Adrian Peterson.

Lions RB Best appears to be 'long shot' to play Turkey Day

Monday, November 22, 2010, 9:52am

Detroit News - [Full Article]

The Lions have been coy about the health of running back Jahvid Best's feet for the last six weeks. Sunday, their actions spoke louder than any words.

Best, ailing from turf toe injuries on both feet, was unable to play anywhere near his capabilities against the Cowboys. He did not start and his playing time was limited.

There was no burst of speed. He was unable to make quick cuts. It was painful to watch. There was a run in the second half where he had room around left end. A healthy Best would have made a big gain. Sunday, though, he was unable to get to the edge.

Maurice Morris (10 carries for 31 yards) and fullback Jerome Felton (four for 14) carried most of the load. The Lions amassed 75 yards rushing.

Now it appears Best is a long shot to be ready to play Thursday.

Fantasy Impact:

If Best can't go, Maurice Morris will probably get a bulk of the carries like last week with Kevin Smith now on IR. It's a matchup to stay away from as New England comes to town and most likely plans on not keeping this game close.

When it comes to the running back position, the Detroit Lions apparently are going to keep their options open.

During Thursday's Organized Team Activity practice -- the last one of the offseason the media will be allowed to attend -- first-round draft pick Jahvid Best was returning kickoffs and fullback Jerome Felton was playing tailback.
