2024 Fantasy Outlook
There was some buzz last offseason about Turner, a 2022 fifth-round pick, potentially unseating Logan Thomas as Washington's top pass catcher at tight end. It never happened, and while Thomas is now gone, the Commanders brought in Zach Ertz and second-round pick Ben Sinnott this offseason. Turner is left to compete for a back-end roster spot, likely needing to make an impression on special teams in order to stick around. Read Past Outlooks

January 23, 2024
Turner caught 11 of 15 targets for 120 yards in 12 games during the 2023 season.
ANALYSIS
There was some spring/summer chatter about Turner potentially supplanting Logan Thomas as Washington's top tight end, but it never came to fruition even after the second-year pro caught seven passes over the first three weeks of the season. Turner caught just four balls the rest of the year and was even a healthy scratch at times, so he'll need to compete for a job in 2024 even if Thomas is released to help clear cap space.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2023
2022
Turner was a fifth-round pick in 2022 and spent most of his rookie season behind Logan Thomas apart from a couple games Thomas missed early in the season. It looks like the same plan for Washington at tight end this year, though Turner showed some chemistry with QB Sam Howell in the preseason while Thomas dealt with a minor injury. Turner could see four or five targets per game if Thomas ends up missing time during the regular season.
Turner had 677 yards and 10 touchdowns last season at Nevada, but a 4.76 40-yard dash and 27-inch vertical show below-average athleticism. Washington took him in the fifth round, bringing in competition for 2021 fourth-round pick John Bates behind starter Logan Thomas, who is rehabbing an ACL tear.
