He is ranked 32nd for the year in 8 cat.

However, if you ignore the blocks he's at 111!!!

Just shows where most of his value comes... was hoping for more then a specialist who also seems to be shooting 3s and watching while dipo hoists up 26 shots while connecting on 9 of them

 

The good thing about having Myles is you never have to worry about losing blocks. Or at least I don't lol

I somewhat disagree.  The guy with one less game over a whole fantasy season is like 55/56 as effective as the same player with one more game.  One less game in championship week?  That player is like

Only thing ever hot about this dude is his thread. 

Using the blog writer's logic, Kevin Love, KAT, Al Horford, etc. are just role players.  Kevin, KAT and Al are all being asked to do less than they are capable of.  Carrying it a step further,  even S

I finally watch the game tonight, he normally always just stand in the corner on offense? SMH

 

Blame this on he inept coach.

I watched the game on ESPN tonight and saw Turner with excellent position on the block with a smaller player guarding him. He called for the ball but instead of passing the ball, Stephenson shot an airball. You can't really blame the guy when he's on a team with so many ballhogs.

Yes, you can... he should go talk to them but he's usually just content to cheer his teammates as they take shot after shot... it's ok to be a little selfish sometimes but it doesn't seem to be part of his personality although in interviews he does mention wanting to average more points

He has been underwhelming, but it is usually give and take. He makes more 3s, but his fg% suffers. He gets blocks, but not many pts. When he has good %s his rbs are lackluster (very often). I think his value depends on your build. He is someone that can make you win blks every week if you have the right build. So individually he is underwhelming, but in some teams he is an extremely important piece.

I noticed that too. When he scores a bunch he doesn’t get as many rebounds. By as many I mean he gets 3 instead of 6 B)

Maybe the boards are low because he rarely gets offensive rebounds and he's quick to get back on D?  On O he's seems to always be jump shooting from midrange and out instead of being close to or in the paint.  Something like 70% of Turner's total shots are jumpshots from 16ft+ so no wonder he doesn't get offensive rebounds.   

 

Out of all the starting Cs in the league who play more than 25 min/game Turner has the worst offensive rebounding numbers out of all of them.

the worst part about this is that I haven't won a single week in blocks fml. 

 

Lol maybe you should look into trading Myles. It's not worth having him if you don't win blocks.

A center with bad FG% and doesn’t rebound. Never again. 

 

7 rebounds and 49% shooting on the season

Oh 100% if your not winning blocks get rid of him after his next big game!

 

Has too be one of the biggest let downs of the season?

 

Is it Dipo? I thought having PG gone would help him

Is this sarcasm? Man some of ya'll are whiners to the extreme.

Ranked 15th in the last month, 17th in the last 2 weeks. 3 of his last 4 games were really really good, and thread's empty, but I bet as soon as he puts one mediocre statline I'll have to scroll through 2 pages of people whining how he's the huge disappointment.

I see 30th for last month and 31st for the last two weeks in standard 9 cat.

#19 in 8cat (last 30) in espn, so anyway ... he is fine. There is still room for improvement. For everyone that called him a bust this season, i advise you to work on your patience.
