Colts Beat: RB Robert Turbin could get expanded role

Colts.com - [Full Article]

No running back in league history has ever started all 16 games at age 34 or older.

The Colts should, and will, continue to use Frank Gore as their lead back. Only 12 players ran for 1,000 yards last year in the NFL, so Gore is still a top-level back.

But the Colts will certainly involve some other ball carriers behind their Hall of Famer.

Fantasy Impact: 

Robert Turbin wants a more expanded role in 2017, the story said. And GM Chris Ballard believes Turbin has potential for more first and second down work as well. With Gore another year older, and Turbin showing off his skills last season, using the latter more in 2017 could very well be in the works. Turbin contributed in several ways last year. Short-yardage and third down were the two main areas the Colts found plenty of success in using Turbin. The team could also draft a RB in what is supposed to be a deep class.
