A team can only run the ball so much and this offseason Falcons head coach Mike Smith has said running the ball will remain a priority, but on a more by-committee basis.
If the team follows through with this plan, it would negatively impact RB Michael Turner.
The fantasy community seems intent to put Turner out to pasture, but he still has a lot of gas left in the tank. He had eleven 20+ yard runs in '11 (3rd in league) and four 40+ yard runs (2nd), with a 4.5 YPC. Even with a 10% drop in carries, he's still our #13 RB in standard scoring formats. We're dubious about the Falcons moving to a true RBBC.
