Putting Turbin inside the top-200 is not something anyone wants to do, but with reports that he may be the LeGarrette Blount to Frank Reich's offense, he should be moving up draft boards. While that role is extremely touchdown-dependent, it still has a place in fantasy football, especially when they're projected to be in the lead or in a projected shootout. I'd likely rather roster a high-upside backup, but if you're desperate for someone to get 5-10 touches per week, he can fill that role.

Robert Turbin to be a big part of the offense

The Indy Star is reporting that running back Robert Turbin is set to have "a big role" in the Colts offense and that new head coach Frank Reich plans on having a running-back-by-committee.

Fantasy Impact

This sounds like a disaster for fantasy football purposes. Don't forget that Reich comes from the Doug Pederson tree, who used LeGarrette Blount, Jay Ajayi, and Corey Clement in a massive timeshare last year. Of those three, Turbin fits the Blount role, and you can argue that nobody else gets even close to that role. Reich said, “I think he brings an element of size and power and strength to the mix." With Marlon Mack recovering from shoulder surgery, it seems possible that rookies Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins may even get into the mix. This is going to be an unpredictable backfield, so it's best to slide each of them down draft boards.
