Lynch's contract is for this season only - Week 17 against the San Francisco 49ers and the postseason, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. The team signed Turbin earlier on Monday. From a fantasy perspective, Homer should get most of the work in this committee as both Lynch and Turbin are stepping into a tough Week 17 matchup vs. the 49ers.
IND RB Robert Turbin - 2018 Fantasy Football Outlook
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.
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.
