Week 14 @ NO (14th)

Week 15 vs Tampa (9th)

Week 16 @ Minn (4th)

Considering the fact that he has looked great against the 27th, 31st and 32nd ranked rushing Defenses and terrible against the 5th, 9th and 15th, I have to wonder how owners are feeling about him right now.

Is this a guy you really want to be starting when trying to win a championship?

 
I don't really have an alternative. If he gets me there I'll lose or win with the guy. It doesn't look so hot but if Ryan keeps looking this good then there may be hope they won't stack the line.

Similar here. If Ryan's maturation continues and he is able to start forcing defenses to respect the passing game we could see more holes open for Turner. I'm still looking at trade possibilities and 2nd half prospects to offset the probability that doesn't happen, though.
 
Definiely was worried and not just the playoffs. I tried to trade Turner, but there weren't any takers, so I ended up trading for S. Jackson to go with MJD and Turner. Between the three of them I figure I shold be ok for the rest of the year and through the playoffs (should I be so lucky).

 
Look like tough matchups at this time, but those teams may not be the same as they are now. Injuries could hurt those D and also if they are not in the playoff hunt will there players give 100%??

Bear in mind that it is still very early into the season, and Turners games against these teams are part of the reason that they are ranked as poorly as they are.That said, yet it is a concern but I am not imagining who I would trade him for at this point.

 
I just traded him and S. Holmes for Gore and Galloway just for this very reason. Turner can't be trusted against stout run Ds.

 
I've considered trading Turner for SJax for this reason.
Personal opinion is that a healthy SJax is the #1 commodity to have at RB during the playoff weeks.As a whole, I don't think anyone has a better stretch than @ARIZ, SEA, SF for weeks 14-16.

Agreed, but it's not just stout run D's...he's not on the field in obvious passing situations, so when the Falcons get behind he won't see the field that much because Norwood is a capable RB
