Colts RB Robert Turbin suspended four games for PEDs

Friday, June 29, 2018, 2:20pm

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

Robert Turbin announced on Twitter that he will be suspended for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing drugs. Adam Schefter confirmed the suspension will be four games in length.

Fantasy Impact:

Turbin was expected to fill the "big back" role for the Colts to open the season, but he will now be unable to play until Week 5. That gives Marlon Mack, Nyheim Hines, and Jordan Wilkins increased opportunities, particularly in goal-line situations. It is possible Turbin returns to no stable role in the offense.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

Robert Turbin is suspended for the first four games of the season; therefore, his upside is capped. The 28-year-old Turbin spent most of the Colts’ OTAs as the team’s top running back with the first-team offense. Theoretically, that gives him some upside once he serves his suspension.

Fantasy Downside

The Colts have promising first- and second-year RBs on the roster and a new coaching staff with no allegiance to Turbin. It's very possible he doesn't make the roster after his suspension is over if those young RBs play well.

2018 Bottom Line

Given the suspension, Turbin is not worth drafting in leagues and wasting a bench spot on. However, given his place with the first team in OTAs, he's a name to monitor on the waiver wire going into Week 5.
