Recent Player News
Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said that he expects running back Todd Gurley (knee) to play in the divisional round on Jan. 12. I think its been making good progress. Hes feeling good, McVay told reporters. He came in today and everything was positive with what were getting from [senior director of sports medicine and performance] Reggie [Scott]. Well take it a day at a time." Gurley missed the last two games of the regular season to the dismay of his fantasy owners, while C.J. Anderson admirably filled in by rushing for 299 yards and two touchdowns in Gurley's absence. Gurley will be a popular DFS pick in the playoffs, but he'll come at a high cost and might not be as effective as he was during the regular season coming off a long layoff.
2 months ago: C.J. Anderson Shines In Todd Gurley's Absence
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley was sat again in Week 17 to rest his injured knee. In his stead, the team started running back C.J. Anderson to carry the mantle he played very well with 23 carries for 132 yards and a touchdown to go with three catches for 22 yards. Anderson has struggled with consistency in his career, but the Rams offensive line has done a great job opening holes for him. This is still Gurley's team, but Anderson has given them a great backup to keep them afloat these last two weeks.
2 months ago: Todd Gurley Ruled Out For Week 17
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley (knee) has been ruled out for Week 17 against the 49ers. Much to the dismay of fantasy owners, Gurley will miss the final two games of the regular season as they rest him up for a playoff run. C.J. Anderson, who ran for 167 yards and a touchdown in his team debut in Week 16, will have another great matchup against San Fran and will have RB1 upside to close out the year.
2 months ago: Todd Gurley Not Practicing Thursday
Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said that running back Todd Gurley (knee) won't practice for the second straight day on Thursday. However, Gurley could miss practice all week and still play in Week 17 against the 49ers. Gurley suffered similar symptoms after the season opener against the Raiders in Week 1. It's looking more likely that Gurley will miss his second straight game, which would be terrible for those still fighting for a fantasy championship. If he does, C.J. Anderson would be a high-end RB2 in a great matchup. Anderson stepped right in with 167 yards and a touchdown in Week 16.
2 months ago: Todd Gurley Won't Practice Wednesday
Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said that running back Todd Gurley (knee) will not take part in Wednesday's walkthrough practice. Gurley remains day-to-day after sitting out in Week 16. He's a question mark again this week for the regular season finale. If he misses his second straight game, C.J. Anderson will be the lead back once again after running for 167 yards and a touchdown last Sunday. Anderson would be an RB2 if he gets another start. Gurley would be in danger of seeing limited snaps against San Fran even if he returns to the active lineup.
2 months ago: Todd Gurley May Be Rested In Week 17
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley (knee), who was a surprise inactive in Week 16 against the Cardinals, may be held out for a second straight game in Week 17 against the 49ers to ensure that he is close to 100 percent for the start of the postseason. With fantasy championships on the line, this couldn't have come at a worse time for his fantasy owners. However, if you picked up C.J. Anderson and inserted him into your starting lineup, you received an early Christmas present, as the former Bronco ran 20 times for 167 yards and a touchdown. If Gurley misses his second straight game, Anderson will once again have RB1 upside for those playing for something in the regular season finale.
2 months ago: Todd Gurley Ruled Out Against Cardinals
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley (knee) has been ruled out for Week 16 against the Cardinals, according to a source. Gurley's owners will be seriously depressed as they try to win a fantasy title without him this weekend. You'll have to find a backup plan for the afternoon slate. Justin Davis is active, so he, rookie John Kelly and C.J. Anderson will form some sort of timeshare in a great matchup against Arizona's soft run defense. The Rams hyped Anderson after signing him recently, so he could see the majority of the carries. Still, it's hard to predict which of the three will have the best day.
2 months ago: Todd Gurley To Be Game-Time Decision
Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said that running back Todd Gurley (knee) will have a pregame workout on Sunday before a decision is made as to whether he'll play in Week 16 against the Cardinals. Backup Justin Davis is also questionable and isn't expected to play, so C.J. Anderson would be the next man up if neither Gurley nor Davis play. This is exactly what fantasy owners were afraid of. It'd be a serious blow during championship week if Gurley was unavailable. Even if he does play, the Rams could limit his workload in a game they should easily win. Consider Gurley more of a low-end RB1 this weekend if he plays. Anderson would be more of a DFS streamer if both Gurley and Davis are inactive.
2 months ago: Todd Gurley Has Yet To Run This Week
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley (knee) has yet to run and test his knee in practice this week, and he might not be able to play in Week 16 against the Cardinals. I think Ill be fine, man, Gurley said. Just taking it day-by-day recovering, resting, trying to feel better. Gurley doesn't plan on practicing at all this week, so his fantasy owners run the risk of Gurley being limited or even shut down altogether if the Rams jump out to a big lead early. Head coach Sean McVay said he won't risk Gurley's availability for the playoffs by playing him in the final two regular season games if he's not healthy enough. Justin Davis (shoulder) also missed practice Thursday, so rookie John Kelly and C.J. Anderson might have to carry the load if both Gurley and Davis can't play. Gurley might be more of a low-end RB1 if he suits up, even in a great matchup against the Cardinals. It's bad timing with fantasy titles on the line this weekend.
2 months ago: Rams Expect Todd Gurley To Play In Week 16
Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said "the expectation" is that running back Todd Gurley (knee) will play in Week 16 against the Cardinals. Gurley felt better on Wednesday and is day-to-day with knee inflammation. While his knee injury isn't serious, Gurley carries a little more risk in fantasy championships due to the fact that he could be rested if the Rams get out to a big lead early. Arizona is a great matchup for running backs, though, so Gurley remains an elite RB1 for fantasy owners.
2 months ago: Todd Gurley Day-To-Day
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley (knee) is dealing with inflammation and is day-to-day, according to head coach Sean McVay. It's the best possible news for Gurley's owners after he missed a little time in the third quarter of Sunday night's loss to the Eagles. He still had 12 carries for 48 yards and two touchdowns on the ground while adding a season-high 10 catches for 76 yards. Gurley might be rested in practice this week but should be good for the excellent Week 16 matchup against the Cardinals pathetic rush defense. He'll remain an elite RB1 for fantasy championship week.
2 months ago: Todd Gurley Finishes Strong In Week 15
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley didn't have his best day on the ground due to the team falling behind big in Week 15. He did show off his dual-threat ability with 10 catches for 76 yards to go along with 12 carries for 48 yards and two touchdowns. Gurley is the engine that drives this offense, and he was humming along this week. In Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals, Gurley gets a matchup against that he played very well against earlier in the season. He might not put up the three touchdowns that he did previously, but he will still put up a solid day. Gurley is a consistent RB1, and that will hold true this week.
2 months ago: Todd Gurley Injured Sunday Night
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley (knee) is questionable to return in the second half on Sunday night against the Eagles. The Rams offense runs through Gurley, so they'd be in trouble if this is a serious injury, as would his fantasy owners. The good news is Gurley had already carried the ball 11 times for 47 yards and a touchdown and caught all five of his passing targets for 38 extra yards. Justin Davis and rookie John Kelly will handle touches in the backfield if Gurley is unable to return. Davis will be a popular waiver addition next week heading into fantasy championship week if Gurley's injury puts him in danger of missing Week 16.
2 months ago: Todd Gurley Has A Great Matchup In Week 15
After facing one of the toughest defenses in the NFL in Week 14, Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley gets a far easier matchup in Week 15. The Philadelphia Eagles are giving up 4.9 yards per carry this season. Coincidentally, Gurley is averaging 4.9 yards per carry. He also is a great threat out of the backfield with 49 receptions on the season. Gurley is the best running back in the NFL, and, outside of last week, he has been the most consistent performer at the position this season. He struggled last week, but he should bounce back and be an RB1 again this week.
2 months ago: Todd Gurley Is Shut Down In Week 14
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley has been a borderline MVP candidate all season long. Even when defenses scheme to stop him, he has been able to turn in a solid outing. In Week 14 against the Chicago Bears, that was not the case. Gurley finished with 11 carries for 28 yards to go with three catches for 30 yards. Like the rest of the Rams offense, Gurley was just never able to get into a groove. This doesn't seem like something that will continue moving forward, but defenses know that Gurley is the engine that makes this offense go. He will have to scrap for every yard, but he will be more than capable of doing so.
3 months ago: Todd Gurley Faces A Tough Defense In Week 14
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley has been one of the most consistent running backs in the NFL this season. He has scored at least one touchdown in every game other than the team's Week 11 shootout with the Kansas City Chiefs. This week, he faces the NFL's best run defense in the Chicago Bears. They have elite players at all three levels that will make life difficult for Gurley, but he will still get the touches necessary to have a fantasy relevant day. Additionally, he is a great pass-catcher out of the backfield that only increases his possible value. While Gurley might not explode for 30 points like we have seen a couple times this season, he should still have a solid outing this weekend.
3 months ago: Todd Gurley Eats Well in Week 13
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley had a quiet performance in Week 11 due to an ankle injury, but he bounced back in a big way in Week 13. He finished out the team's win with 23 carries for 132 yards and two touchdowns. He also showed his hands with three catches for 33 yards. Gurley has been arguably the best asset in fantasy football this season, and he continued to show that this week. After the New Orleans Saints loss on Thursday night, the door is wide open for the Rams to win the NFC and earn home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. With that on the line, Gurley should continue to be a set-it-and-forget-it RB1 down the stretch.
3 months ago: Todd Gurley Is Fine
Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said that running back Todd Gurley (ankle) had a great practice on Wednesday. The team expects him to be his normal self in Week 13 against the Lions. Gurley tweaked his ankle in the Week 11 shootout win over the Chiefs, but he had the bye week to rest up. Gurley is the No. 1 overall fantasy option in a solid matchup against the Lions this weekend.
3 months ago: Todd Gurley Should Get Back on Track in Week 13
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley has been held to fewer than 100 rushing yards in two of the last three contests. However, Gurley has remained efficient in fantasy leagues despite his lack of running room lately. He's heading into a matchup against the Lions defense that has allowed 100 yards to three running backs over the last five games, according to Yahoo. Gurley should have no problem dominating the Lions in Week 13.
3 months ago: Todd Gurley Not Expected To Be Limited By Ankle Moving Forward
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley experienced an ankle injury late in the team's 54-51 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Head coach Sean McVay noted that this limited him down the stretch of the game, which is why the team limited his touches. Gurley never exited the game for an extended term, but he wasn't as present as he normally is. McVay also noted that it is unlikely for Gurley to be limited moving forward, and the bye week will definitely help his health for the stretch run at the end of the season.
3 months ago: Todd Gurley Quiet Despite Team's Offensive Explosion
Los Angeles Ram running back Todd Gurley has been an elite running back option all season long, but that changed this week. Gurley only had 12 carries for 55 yards to go with three catches for 39 yards. His touchdown streak also came to an end at 13 games. The Kansas City Chiefs made a concerted effort to force quarterback Jared Goff to beat them, and he did just that. Moving forward, it's likely that Gurley won't struggle as he did in this matchup, but it showed that Gurley isn't quite as matchup-proof as he has been thought so far. If the Rams shut down Gurley at the tail end of the season for the playoffs, his backup running back Malcolm Brown becomes an intriguing option. However, Gurley is still an elite running back that you can start with confidence.
3 months ago: Todd Gurley Has Incredible Matchup
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley has an absolutely perfect matchup ahead of him against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 11. The Chiefs have given up the most fantasy points to running backs this season, according to Yahoo. Kansas City's defense has allowed four rushing touchdowns over their last two games. Gurley is the best back in the NFL going against the worst run defense in the league. Gurley needs to be started in every single format this week.
3 months ago: Todd Gurley Extends His Touchdown Streak
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley continued his onslaught on the NFL this week with 16 carries for 120 yards and a touchdown to go along with three catches for 40 yards. Gurley is the NFL's best running back right now, and he wore the defense down over the course of the game. With a defense that has struggled as the Rams' have, Gurley slows the pace of the game down. He lost his streak of games with at least 20 points in PPR formats last week, but he looks set to make that the outlier moving forward. Gurley has his bye week in week 12, but he can be started with zero doubt every week.
3 months ago: Todd Gurley Looking To Continue Record Pace
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley has 12 touchdowns through nine games this season. The MVP runner-up from last season is looking to right that ship this season, and he has another good matchup this week to build his case. Last time out against the Seattle Seahawks, Gurley was extremely efficient with three touchdowns on just 22 carries. His offensive line continues to get better, and he has shown he doesn't need a large hole to break a big play. The Seahawks ranks 17th in rushing yards allowed, but they rank 27th in yards allowed per attempt. When teams run on them, they have good success. Gurley has the ability to have a monster performance against this team. You're starting him every week, and this week should give you great returns.
4 months ago: Todd Gurley is Slowed Down by Saints
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley was not able to find much room to run against the Saints in Week 9. Gurley rushed 13 times for 68 yards and one touchdown. He also caught six passes for 11 yards in the Rams loss. Gurley was still able to find the end zone, but it's been pretty much impossible for any team to keep him from scoring. Gurley is obviously a must-start player every week and he heads into a matchup against Seattle. Gurley should find more room to run against the Seahawks in Week 10.
4 months ago: Todd Gurley Faces Toughest Challenge Yet
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley is an elite fantasy option each and every week. However, he could have some difficulty finding room to run against a Saints defense that hasn't allowed a RB to rush for over 70 yards a game yet. Although, Gurley has 11 touchdowns and is seemingly unstoppable this season. He might not drop 150 rushing yards and two touchdowns, but fantasy owners can always count on Gurley.
4 months ago: Todd Gurley Continues Elite Season
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley continued his touchdown streak of 11 games, including last season. Against the Green Bay Packers, he ran 25 times for 114 yards. In addition, he had six catches for 81 yards and a touchdown, which led the team in receiving yards. Gurley struggled in the first half, but he wore the defense down and dominated them late. He is quite possibly the best and most matchup-proof player in the NFL right now. Unless he's on a bye, you can start him with confidence every week.
4 months ago: Todd Gurley Set To Continue Strong Season
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley is steadily putting together one of the best seasons ever by a running back. He is on pace to break the single-season touchdown record of 31 held by Hall of Famer LaDainian Tomlinson. Against the Green Bay Packers, he has the potential to inch closer to that mark and continue his strong season. His average points per week sits right around 30 per week which is an absurd mark to maintain over an entire season. Against a Packers team that has struggled to contain running backs, Gurley is a usual lock RB1. He can be started with confidence as always.
4 months ago: Todd Gurley Scores Three Touchdowns In Week 7
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley didn't have his biggest yardage total of the season in Week 7, but he had a big day overall. He finished the day with 15 carries for 63 yards and two touchdowns to go along with four catches and 23 yards with one touchdown. Gurley remains a locked-in RB1 in all formats. Last season, he finished second in MVP voting and he has been the most consistent performer this season, which could help his case this year. Games like Sunday are almost a guarantee for Gurley every week, so he should continue this torrid pace moving forward.
4 months ago: Todd Gurley Will Continue to be Unstoppable
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley rushed for over 200 yards last week and he might just do it again in Week 7. Gurley has scored 11 total touchdowns this season and he'll likely add to that this week. The 49ers run defense has been below average and should have a difficult time trying to stop Gurley. Fantasy owners should continue to plug in Gurley has an elite RB1.
4 months ago: Todd Gurley Continues to Dominate
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley has been basically unstoppable this season, and the Broncos had no answer for him in Week 6. Gurley rushed 28 times for 208 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday. Gurley set a new career high in rushing yards against a Broncos defense that got destroyed by Isaiah Crowell the week prior. Gurley has scored 11 touchdowns and is showing no signs of slowing down. He should continue to dominate against the 49ers in Week 7.
4 months ago: Todd Gurley Continues Excellent Season In Week 6
As Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff struggled, they needed their All-Pro running back Todd Gurley to pick up the slack. He answered the call with 28 carries for 208 yards and two touchdowns. He also had two catches for 17 yards on five targets. Gurley continues to be arguably the best running back in football this season, and that will ring true moving forward. Gurley is a true set it and forget it player.
4 months ago: Todd Gurley is Elite RB1 in Week 6
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley has scored nine touchdowns for the Rams this season and is showing no signs of slowing down. Gurley was able to score three touchdowns on the ground last week. He's been basically unstoppable and should have an excellent game against the Broncos in Week 6. Denver has allowed a running back to score in each of the last four games. Gurley should run wild all over Denver in this one.
5 months ago: Todd Gurley Scores Three TDs in Week 5
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley had a fantastic week in terms of fantasy against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Gurley rushed 22 times for 77 yards and three touchdowns in the 33-31 victory over the Rams. He only averaged 3.5 yards per carry, but that doesn't really matter when you score three touchdowns. Obviously Gurley is going to remain an elite RB1 in just about every week. The Rams could lean more on Gurley next week if Brandin Cooks (concussion) and Cooper Kupp (concussion) are unable to play against Denver.
5 months ago: Todd Gurley Should Run Wild in Week 5
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley has scored in each game while posting at least 147 yards on three occasions, according to Yahoo. He'll head into a matchup against the Seahawks that have allowed 100 yards to three RBs this season. It's hard to imagine Seattle having much success trying to stop Gurley. He's going to be an elite RB1 and should be owned in all DFS lineups.
5 months ago: Todd Gurley Performs As Expected on Thursday
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley was not expected to do much on the ground against a Vikings defense that held every other back to under 60 yards heading into Thursday. Gurley rushed 17 times for 83 yards and caught four passes for 73 yards and one touchdown. Even the best defenses in the league are unable to contain Gurley. He should continue to find room to run against Seattle next week.
5 months ago: Todd Gurley Has Tough Challenge on Thursday
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley has a tough challenge ahead of him in his Week 4 matchup against the Vikings. Gurley has posted at least 105 rushing yards or more in two of the three games this season. However, he's facing a Vikings defense that has yet to allow 60 yards to a running back this season. Fantasy owners shouldn't avoid Gurley, but he might not play as well as he's projected. Many DFS players may want to use another back this week.
5 months ago: Todd Gurley Continues Strong Season
After an inefficient but high-scoring Week 2, Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley had an excellent Week 3. He finished with 105 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries on the ground, while he added five catches for 51 yards. Gurley remains an elite option in all formats, and he is proving to be matchup-proof. His big-play ability combined with his natural talent makes him a threat to be the No. 1 running back on a weekly basis. Gurley got it done in the running and passing game this week, and he will maintain that ability for the rest of the season.
5 months ago: Todd Gurley Should be Heavily Involved in Week 3
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley has seen at least 19-20 carries during each of the first two weeks. Much like last season, the Rams lean heavily on Gurley and the ability to run the ball. Gurley should continue to see the ball in Week 3 against a Chargers defense that does not defend the run game too well. Plus the Chargers are without pass rusher Joey Bosa, so that does not help their situation. Gurley should play as projected or better in Week 3.
5 months ago: Todd Gurley Leaves With Cramps Sunday
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley left the game in Week 2 against the Cardinals with some cramping and didn't return in a 34-0 blowout win. He had just 73 total yards on the day and wasn't very effective on the ground (2.2 yards per carry), but he saved his fantasy owners with three touchdowns and two two-point conversions before he left. Gurley had 19 carries for 42 yards and all three scores on the ground, also catching three passes for 31 yards. He should be fine to play in Week 3, but keep an eye on his practice participation leading up to the game. Gurley is a no-doubt RB1 every week if he's playing.
5 months ago: Todd Gurley Embracing Fantasy Football Side Of Life
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley has been the consensus top pick on nearly every fantasy site. His dual-threat ability was put on full display last season, and he should be even better with another year in head coach Sean McVay's offense. Against the Oakland Raiders, he has an extremely high ceiling and he should reward owners handsomely for spending their top picks on him.
6 months ago: Todd Gurley Should Play Well Against Oakland
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley will take on the below-average Oakland Raiders defense in Week 1. The Raiders run defense was decent last season, they gave up the 15th most fantasy points, according to Yahoo. Gurley is an elite running back and someone that should start in every fantasy league. This might not be a three touchdown game for Gurley, but he should play as projected against Oakland.
6 months ago: Todd Gurley, Jared Goff Are Strong Week 1 Plays
The Oakland Raiders traded edge rusher Khalil Mack over the weekend. Mack finished sixth via Pro Football Focus last season, including fourth against the run. His absence in their Week 1 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams makes quarterback Jared Goff and running back Todd Gurley move even higher up on the totem pole. The Raiders defense has struggled in recent years, and they are in for a tough test this week. Gurley is a consensus top-five play this week, while Goff could be a top-10 quarterback this week.
6 months ago: Todd Gurley Won't Play on Saturday
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley will not play in the third preseason game against the Houston Texans on Saturday. It's pretty unusual for a team not to play their starters for at least a series or two during the preseason. There is a good chance that we won't see Gurley and quarterback Jared Goff together until Week 1 of the regular season. John Kelly and Malcolm Brown should see a bulk of snaps at running back on Saturday. Kelly has been very impressive through two games and could earn himself the backup job behind Gurley if he continues to succeed. However, Gurley is likely the only running back in the Rams organization worth rostering in fantasy leagues.
6 months ago: Todd Gurley Sitting Out Remainder Of Preseason
Los Angeles Rams' running back Todd Gurley will be sitting out the remainder of the preseason. While he may experience some rust at the start of the season, he will be healthy in Week One. With so many players dealing with injuries from preseason action, fantasy and non-fantasy fans will be happy to not see him on the injury report. Gurley was already at or near the top of most fantasy boards. A clean bill of health could push him up one or two spots.
6 months ago: Todd Gurley And Jared Goff Could Start Slow
If you're hoping for Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley and quarterback Jared Goff to carry your fantasy team at the start of the season, you might have to have a backup plan. Head coach Sean McVay hinted that neither of the two may play in the preseason. Presumably, this is to prevent them from sustaining any unnecessary hits or injuries. While this is certainly a smart choice, as evidenced by the various key players across the league set to miss time from preseason injuries, there will be some rust when the season starts. Players like Le'Veon Bell have shown that not playing in the preseason could bring rust at the start of the year. While the two will still be good or great as the season progresses, they could be in for slow starts, depending on how much the rust affects them.
7 months ago: Todd Gurley Finalizing Four-Year Extension
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley is finalizing a four-year extension worth $60 million on Tuesday. The deal includes $45 million in guarantees and will tie him to LA for the next six seasons. Gurley was a fantasy MVP last year in head coach Sean McVay's offense. With LA's offense only improving and quarterback Jared Goff looking better, the needle is only pointing up for the young running back. He's a candidate to be taken first overall in fantasy drafts.
10 months ago: Rams Pick Up Options On Todd Gurley, Marcus Peters
The Los Angeles Rams picked up the fifth-year options on running back Todd Gurley and cornerback Marcus Peters on Tuesday, according to sources. In head coach Sean McVay's offense in 2017, Gurley excelled, setting career highs in carries (279), yards (1,305), rushing scores (13), receptions (64), receiving yards (788) and receiving touchdowns (six). He will once again be the focal point of a rising offense and is worth a high first-round selection in drafts. Peters was acquired in a trade with KC this offseason and will immediately upgrade the team's secondary as one of the best young cornerbacks in the game.
1 year ago: Todd Gurley Rushes Over 100 Yards
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley has been seemingly unstoppable all season long, and that continued in Saturday's contest against the Falcons. He rushed 14 times for 101 yards and caught four passes for 10 yards through the air. He probably should've seen 7-8 more carries, but special teams turnovers hurt the Rams offense. Gurley finished the season with 1,305 rushing yards and 13 rushing touchdowns. He collected 19 total touchdowns and put himself in MVP discussion. Gurley's incredible season has made him a top-three fantasy pick next season.
1 year ago: Todd Gurley Should Destroy Falcons
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley should be in for a solid performance against the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday. Gurley was able to win some fantasy owners championships, and might even be able to win himself an MVP award. He finished the season with 1305 rushing yards and 13 rushing touchdowns. He scored 19 total TDs on the season, and should be in the discussion for MVP. Gurley needs to be owned in leagues this weekend, because opponents can't figure out how to stop him.
1 year ago: Todd Gurley, Jared Goff Won't Play In Week 17
Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay confirmed that running back Todd Gurley and quarterback Jared Goff will not play in Week 17 against the 49ers. With the Rams facing a meaningless Week 17 contest, they'll elect to rest some of their starters ahead of the playoffs. If you own Gurley or Goff and are playing for something in Week 17, you'll have to look for alternatives. Malcolm Brown may have lead-back duties in this one with Gurley out, while Sean Mannion should receive the start under center. The absence of Goff at quarterback will be bad news for the fantasy values of receivers Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Sammy Watkins, too.
1 year ago: Todd Gurley Plays Incredible Against Titans
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley had an outstanding performance in the 27-23 victory over the Tennessee Titans in Week 16. Gurley rushed 22 times for 118 yards and zero touchdowns. He caught 10 of 13 targets through the air for 158 yards and two touchdowns. Gurley has 19 touchdowns on the season and six in the last two games. In Week 16, Gurley became the first player since Herschel Walker in 1985 to go over 100 yards rushing and 150 yards receiving in the same game. He'll likely see limited touches against the 49ers in Week 17, but that doesn't mean he won't be useful.
1 year ago: Todd Gurley Looks to Continue MVP Pace in Week 16
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley exploded for four touchdowns against the Seattle Seahawks last week. He now has 1,187 rushing yards and 13 rushing touchdowns this season. He's put himself on the MVP radar with this incredible bounce-back season. Gurley leads the league with 17 touchdown this season.

Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley averaged 7.4 yards per carry in the Week 14 loss to the Eagles, but he ran the ball just 13 times compared to 26 pass attempts for quarterback Jared Goff. Head coach Sean McVay understands that he needs to remain more balanced as a play caller. "I look at it myself and say, ‘You've got to make sure that you're cognizant of giving the runs a chance and trying to stay balanced,'" McVay said. "And that's something that I haven't done. You can't keep standing up here and saying the same things; you've just got to get it fixed. That's something that I've got to be mindful of." Gurley's 16 touches against the Eagles were tied for his season low, and they are 2-4 when Gurley gets 20 or fewer touches and 7-0 when he goes over 20 touches. Gurley still managed to make his fantasy owners happy with fewer touches. Expect the Rams to get him back over 20 touches in a tough divisional game against the Seahawks this weekend, where Gurley will be squarely in the RB1 mix yet again.

1 year ago: Todd Gurley Sits Out Against Chargers
The Los Angeles Rams are being extra cautious to try to minimize injury, and one of those affected by that caution on Saturday was starting running back Todd Gurley. Gurley has had praise heaped upon him all training camp for the changes he's made to his running style, and head coach Sean McVay wanted to ensure Gurley wouldn't be hindered as the regular season starts by giving him the night off against the Chargers. Concerns have arisen about whether McVay might be taking it too far since the third preseason game is usually seen as a dress rehearsal for the starting lineups, but with the New England Patriots losing star receiver Julian Edelman to an injury in their preseason game this week, perhaps McVay's caution is legitimate.
2 years ago: Todd Gurley Looking Like Rookie Self
The fact that Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley is making people talk about how he looks like he did when he was a rookie is a good thing. In his rookie season, Gurley ran for 1,106 yards and racked up 10 touchdowns, but in his sophomore season, both those numbers dropped to 885 and six, respectively, and most importantly, his YPC dropped to a pitiful 3.2 yards per attempt. Saturday against Oakland, Gurley looked like his old self. He logged 38 yards on eight carries (4.8 YPC), but most importantly, those yards were hard fought to get. One carry in particular made highlight reels as he basically carried the entire Oakland interior defense nine yards. Gurley looks like he could be in for a big season.
2 years ago: Todd Gurley Looking Aggressive
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley was heaped with praise after Saturday's scrimmage against the rival Chargers. Gurley was described as hitting holes decisively, aggressively, and violently. Gurley is coming off a sub-par sophomore year after winning the Offensive Rookie of the Year award during his rookie campaign.

2 years ago: Todd Gurley Getting More Time As Pass Catcher
Injuries can sometimes lead to surprises, and Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley's pass-catching prowess may be one of those. With expected third-down back Lance Dunbar still out due to a knee injury, Gurley has been getting more notice as a pass-catcher out of the backfield. However, the catch to such growth is that head coach Sean McVay is now concerned about over-using Gurley. Even if he is concerned, an expansion in Gurley's game that allows him to stay on the field on more downs is good news for fantasy owners.
2 years ago: Offensive Line, Todd Gurley On The Same Page
Los Angeles Rams offensive guard Rodger Saffold said the offensive line and running back Todd Gurley are having better communication during offseason workouts. Last year, Gurley averaged 6.8 good blocking yards per attempt, which was 38th among 43 qualifying running backs. After an excellent rookie season, Gurley took a big step back in 2016, and his 3.18 yards per attempt ranked 41st among 42 qualified running backs. Because of his sophomore flop, Gurley will present some value in the second or third rounds of fantasy drafts, and he could be in line for a bounce-back season with an improved offensive line and new head coach.
2 years ago: Todd Gurley To Be Less Involved In Passing Game?
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley may not be counted on to be as much of a factor in the running game in 2017. The Rams replaced Benny Cunningham with Lance Dunbar, who can be a big pass-catching threat in the backfield. LA would like Dunbar to take over the pass-catching role in head coach Sean McVay's offense, which would mean significantly less passes thrown Gurley's way. With a revamped offensive line, the Rams would like to get Gurley going again on the ground after he disappointed with 885 yards (3.2 YPC) on 278 carries. The 22-year-old runner was the biggest first-round bust in fantasy in 2016. Even though he was able to raise his reception totals from 21 in 2015 to 43 last season, don't expect that trend to continue this year. Gurley could return first-round value with more room to run in 2017, but it also looks like he won't help his fantasy owners as much in PPR leagues.
2 years ago: Todd Gurley Must Improve In Pass Protection
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley had an extremely disappointing year (278-885-6) after breaking out in his rookie season. As a result, running backs coach Skip Peete said Gurley must first improve as a pass protector. Gurley managed just 3.18 yards per attempt, which ranked 41st among 42 qualified running backs. The talented youngster also has now gone under 100 yards rushing in 23 of his last 24 games, and he had runs of 20 or more yards only two times in 2016. The silver lining in Gurley's season was that he added 43 receptions after catching the ball 21 times in his rookie campaign. Gurley was easily the biggest first-round fantasy bust in 2016, but with a new coaching staff in town, Gurley should be able to rebound with better pass protection and more patience in the run game. Grab Gurley at a discount this fall as a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2.
