Michael Turner/Ryan Mathews Update

While everyone has different  needs/interests, if you don’t have Michael Turner (who practiced today) and need a RB this week, it’s looking like Mike Tolbert’s going to have a large role this week, if not start. Tolbert’s a guy we covered extensively this preseason for a reason: he’s pretty darn good. We like him as a top-15 RB this week if Mathews is ruled out, as it appears he will be.

As for Jason Snelling, I loved what we saw from him last week, and we think he’ll have value all year with Jerious Norwood out. But if you’re looking for the short-term (this week), or if you have Ryan Mathews, Mike Tolbert needs to be picked up if he’s somehow still out there or if your league hasn’t run waivers this week yet.
