Turbin pulled ahead of Jermaine Kearse as the kick returner at the end of the season. While Percy Harvin is the best player on the team at kickoff returns, with his injury history the team will be smart to restrict his use on special teams to games where a spark is needed.

Summary

Turbin was the Seahawks' fourth-round pick two seasons ago, and has been Marshawn Lynch's primary backup since joining the team. He is a competent runner and an effective pass-blocker, and the Seahawks would be comfortable with him in the lineup in the event of an injury to Lynch. Comfort may not be enough, however, as many observers believe that Christine Michael is more talented and has greater upside potential in the Seahawks' offense. While Turbin is currently number two on the depth chart, Christine Michael is probably the better handcuff for owners who already own Marshawn Lynch. Because Turbin will play only a peripheral role in the offense as long as Lynch remains healthy, and will face strong competition for carries even if Lynch misses time, he has little value in redraft leagues.
