Fantasy Focus: The Dog Days of Summer #91

For the second straight day the player in our list is an unrestricted free agent. Not surprisingly both are well used running backs.

2012 #91- Michael Turner RB Free Agent The Burner wasn’t much of one his last couple of season in Atlanta but he was effective.  In 2012 he carried the ball 223 times for 806 yards and 10 TD’s.  His best game of the season was Week #9 against the Cowboys when he had 20 carries for 102 yards and 1 TD. Like Ahmad Bradshaw someone will have to get hurt for him to see real playing time in 2013.

Retro #91-2002 Jerry Porter WR Oakland Raiders- Porter had his third best season as a pro in 2002 and in our leagues would be heavily traded based on potential never realized.  His 2002 stats were 51 catches 688 yards 9 TDs. Owners would discard him the follow year when he only caught one touchdown.

Looking Ahead 2013 #91

ESPN- Chris Givens WR St Louis Rams- Somebody has to catch the ball in St Louis. Givens is a burner so Tavon Austin will probably get all the real looks.

CBS Sports- DeAngelo Williams RB Carolina Panthers- He’s had one great season and the rest have been fantasy purgatory.  I wouldn’t touch him if you forced me too well except last year when I was forced too. He’s a fantasy starting lineup killer.
