Robert Turbin rushed three times for one yard in the Cowboys' Week 15 loss to the Jets.

Darren McFadden retook the Cowboys' backfield reins in this one, handling 18 touches to Turbin's three. Turbin is merely a DMC handcuff for the final few weeks of the NFL regular season.

Robert Turbin rushed seven times for 51 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 14 loss to the Packers.

Both Turbin and Darren McFadden were gashing the Packers with long runs, but the Cowboys decided to "ride" the "arm" of Matt Cassel. Turbin is off the fantasy radar for the final two weeks of the fantasy playoffs.

Robert Turbin rushed six times for 12 yards and caught 2-of-2 targets for 12 yards in the Cowboys' Week 13 win over the Redskins on Monday night.

Turbin handled a third-quarter series all to himself after Darren McFadden fumbled and was checked for a concussion. McFadden quickly returned and took the rest of the work. Turbin did nothing in his limited snaps and was stuffed badly on a 3rd-and-short run that led to a field goal. He remains the handcuff for McFadden owners, but the upside isn't there with Turbin.

Robert Turbin rushed twice for 11 yards and caught his lone target for a gain of one in the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to the Panthers.

Turbin got one series to himself behind Darren McFadden and broke off gains of 8 and 3, but wasn't heard from much thereafter. Turbin is DMC's handcuff.

Running as Darren McFadden's clear backup, Robert Turbin had seven carries for 35 yards in Dallas' Week 11 win over the Dolphins.

He added a three-yard reception. With McFadden nursing a groin injury, it was Turbin — not "Rod Smith" or "Trey Williams" — who was the Cowboys' No. 2 back. With DMC proving he was just fine after tweaking his groin in Wednesday's practice, Turbin has no standalone value for Week 12, but can safely be considered DMC's handcuff.

Robert Turbin is expected to be active for Sunday's Week 11 game against the Dolphins.

Signed just two days ago, Turbin reportedly crammed enough information late in the week that he'll be ready if called upon. Although Rod Smith and Trey Williams have been with the organization longer, Turbin is probably the favorite to emerge as Dallas' No. 2 back behind Darren McFadden down the stretch.

Cowboys signed RB Robert Turbin, formerly of the Browns.

Turbin suffered a high-ankle sprain over the summer with the Seahawks and was waived with an injury settlement. The Browns claimed him and stashed him on the roster until he was healthy Week 6. Turbin rushed 18 times for a meager 60 yards (3.3 YPC) in Cleveland before getting cut last week. In Dallas, he's the third ex-Seahawks running back and will slide in as the No. 3 back.

Browns waived RB Robert Turbin.

Turbin had lofty, 1,000-yard expectations earlier this season, but his stint with the Browns lasted all of four games. The Browns will move forward with Isaiah Crowell as the early-down back with Duke Johnson in a passing-down role. OL Darrian Miller was promoted off the practice squad in a corresponding move.

Robert Turbin didn't play a snap in the Browns' Week 9 loss to the Bengals.

He’s still in coach Mike Pettine’s doghouse after fumbling twice against the Cardinals last week. Turbin belongs on the waiver wire.

Robert Turbin rushed three times for three yards in the Browns' Week 8 loss to the Cardinals.

It was a nightmare day for Turbin. He fumbled twice and lost one of them late in the fourth quarter with the Browns driving at the Cardinals' 38-yard line down by 14 points. Since returning from his high-ankle sprain, Turbin has proven to be a JAG and not worth many carries. He and Isaiah Crowell have provided nothing in weeks. Turbin can be left on waiver wires.

Robert Turbin rushed five times for 30 yards and caught both of his targets for eight yards in the Browns' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

As was the case last week, the Browns divvied up touches pretty evenly between Turbin, Duke Johnson, and Isaiah Crowell. Turbin touched it seven times, Johnson 13, and Crowell eight. Turbin led the team in rushing. Aside from Johnson because of his pass-game involvement, this is a backfield to avoid.

Browns RB Robert Turbin said his ankle felt fine following his first game action of the season.

"Came through OK," Turbin said. "It’s sore right now, but I guess it’s supposed to be." Turbin played 10 fewer snaps than Isaiah Crowell, but he seemed to cut into the sophomore back's workload as the game wore on. If his ankle holds up, Turbin appears to have a real shot to overtake Crowell on the depth chart. He is worth an add in deeper leagues.

Robert Turbin rushed 10 times for 27 yards in the Browns' Week 6 loss to the Broncos.

It was Turbin's debut with the Browns after they claimed him off waivers from the Seahawks just before the season when he suffered a high-ankle sprain. Turbin didn't play his first snaps until the second quarter, but quickly siphoned work from early-down back Isaiah Crowell. The coaches seem to want Turbin to overtake Crowell. Turbin is worth monitoring in 12- and 14-team standard leagues.
Sun, Oct 18, 2015 06:27:00 PM

Browns RB Robert Turbin is expected to play only 10-12 snaps on Sunday.

Isaiah Crowell is active and should play in the 20s. Duke Johnson should be in the 30s. On just 10-12 snaps, Turbin wouldn't figure to see more than eight touches, and that would be a very aggressive prediction.
