Hi there. Thanks for writing in with your question. Roasting turkey in a bag usually doesn't require any water. I did check at Reynolds, though, and they've got a few pages on how to use oven bags to cook a turkey:


There, they don't say anything about adding water, so it looks like you shouldn't!
