Description: Seattle second-year back Robert Turbin is expected to take over third-down receiving duties (from Leon Washington who is now in New England) along with his backup rushing duties behind Marshawn Lynch, according to a Tacoma News Tribune report.
Insight: Turbin is a good late-draft gamble for those who select Lynch in the first round. It will also be good insurance should Lynch's legal troubles arrive earlier than expected.

Description: It has become apparent that rookie Robert Turbin is the back to handcuff to Marshawn Lynch after he started the Seahawks third preseason game and rushed for 93 yards on 14 carries.
Insight: Turbin is a good late-draft gamble for those who believe Lynch's legal troubles could get in the way of football.

Description: Rookie Robert Turbin saw plenty of action in the Seahawks first preseason game and was used as the backup to Marshawn Lynch with Leon Washington keeping his third-down back role.
Insight: Turbin is likely to be the handcuff for fantasy owners who gamble that Lynch's legal troubles won't interfere with his on-the-field action. Seattle could still look for a veteran free agent when teams cut down to the 53-man limit, but with Cedric Benson signing in Green Bay there is currently nothing available that would be a better option.

Description: The latest incident involving Marshawn Lynch and the law could move rookie Robert Turbin in a position to contribute in his first season.
Insight: That's not a guarantee. Turbin may not get the chance if the Seahawks go the free agent route and sign a guy like Cedric Benson.
