Michael Turner RB Atlanta Falcons
Michael Turner finally got out of Ladanian Tomlinson's shadow and get the starting job in Atlanta, and he ran with it. His first season with Atlanta, 2008, he rushed for 1,699 yards and 17 touchdowns. This season, however, he was ravaged by injuries (as was starting QB Matt Ryan) and that led to the Falcons having a down year record wise, and Turner having a bad year stats wise. He ended up with 871 yards and 10 touchdowns, on almost 200 less carries than in 2008, and the Falcons didn't make the playoffs despite a winning record.
