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.

Fantasy Impact: 

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.
