    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed 23 times for 116 yards in Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he added one catch for four yards on his only target.

    Huddle Up: Gurley had a disastrous season from a fantasy perspective in 2016, but he has been a bona fide RB1 in all fantasy formats this season. He'll look to keep it rolling in Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals over in England.

  • Posted: 10/8/2017 8:56pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed 14 times for 43 yards in Week 5 against the Seattle Seahawks and he added two receptions for seven yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Gurley was attempting to reach for the goal line early in the game, lost the handle at the 1-yard line and the ball hit the pylon and was given to the Seahawks. He'll look to get back on track in Week 6 on the road against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

  • Posted: 10/7/2017 6:49pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley said the 'sky's the limit' for their offense, and he credits head coach Sean McVay's ability to spread the ball around for their success this year.

    Huddle Up: Gurley is off to a great start, and he is locked in as a RB1 in Week 5 against a Seattle Seahawks defense that is allowing 5.0 yards per carry and 134.0 rushing yards per game.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 5:27pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed 23 times for 121 yards in Week 4 against the Dallas Cowboys and he added seven receptions for a team-high 94 yards and a score on eight targets.

    Huddle Up: Gurley was a huge bust in 2016 from a fantasy perspective, but his failures in the run game were likely a result of the passing game struggling mightily. Jared Goff has been much better this season, opening up more open spaces for Gurley to roam.

  • Posted: 9/21/2017 9:15pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley carried the ball 28 times for 113 yards (4.0 YPC) and two touchdowns against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3. Gurley added 36 yards and another score on five receptions.

    Huddle Up: Incredibly, this was Gurley's first 100-plus-yard rushing game since Dec. 13, 2015, against the Lions (a span of 20 games). He now leads the NFL in touchdowns with six and is averaging 127 total yards per game. If you're looking for an asterisk it's that Gurley fumbled for the third straight contest and fourth time this year. Still, after a dismal 2016 he's looking like a legitimate workhorse and viable RB1.

  • Posted: 9/21/2017 8:54pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley finished with 28 carries for 113 yards and two touchdowns and added five catches for 36 yards and a score in a 41-39 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Gurley now has as many touchdowns in three games this year as he did in all of 2016. He is quickly looking like a weekly RB1 option in all formats once again.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 9:23pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed 16 times for 88 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Redskins and he added three receptions for 48 yards and his first-career receiving score on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Gurley rushed for just six touchdowns in 2016, but he already has three total scores through two games this season. He has the potential to be an elite fantasy option and he is taking some big steps forward toward realizing that potential this season. The Rams meet the 49ers on the road Thursday in Week 3.

  • Posted: 9/16/2017 8:56pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley averaged 0.84 yards before first contact in Week 1, which ranked 37th among 41 running backs. 'We've just got to be more physical, whether me, just everybody,' Gurley said.

    Huddle Up: The stat indicates that Gurley didn't have a lot of help from his offensive line in the opener, but his involvement in the passing game and the performance of Jared Goff were encouraging for his long-term prospects. He should at least be a volume-based RB2 against the Redskins in Week 2.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 7:35pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley carried 19 times for 40 yards and a touchdown and caught five passes for 56 yards in a 46-9 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Despite an improved offense line and a solid game from Jared Goff, Gurley still found running room tough to come by. On the plus side, he was more involved in the passing game. His heavy workload should have him flirting with RB1 status against Washington in Week 2.

  • Posted: 8/26/2017 5:39pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley was rested for the team's third preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Saturday, Aug. 26.

    Huddle Up: There has been no mention of an injury with Gurley, so this move was likely made with an eye on preserving the Rams' offensive centerpiece for the regular season. With an improved supporting cast around him, a sharp offensive mind calling plays and no realistic option to push him for playing time, Gurley makes a fine selection in the middle of the second round of most drafts.

  • Posted: 8/22/2017 6:29pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley ranked 41st in fantasy efficiency among 42 qualifying running backs in 2016. He finished last in PPR fantasy scoring per touch, and second to last in standard fantasy points per touch as well as offensive yards per touch. Gurley ranked 39th in standard fantasy points per contest and 22nd in PPR points per game, which was his highest ranking of any efficiency category.

    Huddle Up: You can thank Jeff Fisher's predictable brand of football (and a lack of overall talent) for those numbers. Life should get better, albeit possibly a marginal improvement, for Gurley in 2017. The Rams will be more diverse and dynamic under Sean McVay. In theory, Jared Goff will have taken a step forward, too, by season's end. Gurley is a shaky RB1 and better drafted as a second in all formats.

  • Posted: 8/2/2017 7:16am ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley is expected to see more action in the passing game after the injury to RB Lance Dunbar (knee). He needs to improve as a pass blocker to be used more often on third downs. 'When you have a special player like Todd, you want to continue to find ways to get him involved but also be mindful of, ?What is that fine balance between him being at his best and not wearing him out??' head coach Sean McVay said. 'That is something that we?re continuing to find out.'

    Huddle Up: Gurley has been below the league average in yards per rush in 21 of his 28 starts after taking the league by storm once he touched the field. Gurley is a low-end RB1 with significant upside.

  • Posted: 7/9/2017 11:41am ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley has 'definitely been loving' his exposure to new head coach Sean McVay's style of offense.

    Huddle Up: After working with first-time play-callers Rob Boras and Frank Cignetti in his first two pro seasons, McVay's 'wealth' of knowledge and experience must seem like a breath of fresh air for Gurley. Expect the Rams to lean on Gurley as much as possible in 2017 as McVay attempts to find out what he has in the passing game. With some much-needed improvements along the offensive line, Gurley should be able to return to RB1 status this fall.

  • Posted: 6/21/2017 10:20am ET

    Los Angeles Rams OL Rodger Saffold told ESPN's Alden Gonzalez he saw improvement in the communication with RB Todd Gurley during the offseason program. 'It's more just kind of figuring out the speed out of the backfield that (Gurley) needs. Once you get that down, then you kind of see the mesh of what we're trying to get done. ? I think he's attacking where we want the ball to go a lot better. And I think he?s letting things develop, too. Letting things develop on the inside, but on the outside he?s really pushing that edge, and it?s opening up some things for him,' Saffold said.

    Huddle Up: Gurley pressed the issue at times last year, but who can blame him? The Rams are hoping the veteran savvy of new left tackle Andrew Whitworth and center John Sullivan can help fix the team's issues up front. Gurley may lose some passing-down snaps to Lance Dunbar, but he is a prime rebound candidate if he can learn to trust his line again. He's shaping up to be a potential steal at his current mid-second round ADP.

  • Posted: 5/30/2017 6:37am ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley is likely to receive fewer targets in the passing game with the addition of RB Lance Dunbar. Gurley had his targets double from 26 in 2015 to 58 in 2016.

    Huddle Up: Gurley was a colossal bust last season, and there is likely to be some trepidation in selecting him in the first round anyway. He has clearly shifted to the midrange or back end of the RB1 discussion, but a bounce-back season isn't out of the realm.

  • Posted: 4/3/2017 9:43pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said 'it's going to take everybody' for RB Todd Gurley to have a 'bounce-back year,' referring to the linemen and receivers being able to make blocks 'because everybody is tied together.' McVay added: 'Clearly, what he did in his rookie year, I think it sets the expectations where this guy is going to be a great back year-in and year-out.'

    Huddle Up: Gurley burned fantasy owners everywhere who took him early on in drafts with their first pick, going from the Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2015 to amassing the fewest rushing yards ever in a season for someone who registered at least 275 carries. He also averaged just 3.18 yards per carry, which was the second-worst mark among qualified rushers. The Rams' horrendous play at quarterback also played a role in all of this, and if Jared Goff can't take a few steps forward, Gurley may be looking at another lost season in 2017.

  • Posted: 2/15/2017 6:25am ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley became impatient and went away from the play call when holes didn't open up early, according to running backs coach Skip Peete. 'He started changing what he was trying to do,' Peete said. 'The most important thing, like we talked about, is you have to have total confidence in the scheme of the play.' Peete also said Gurley needs to improve his pass blocking.

    Huddle Up: Will the real Todd Gurley please stand up? He had 566 rushing yards in his first four starts, and he has rushed for 100 yards once in 24 games since then. He's still in the RB1 discussion, and the upside is still there, but his ability to adapt is in question. He's a boom-or-bust option that you will have to put your feet to the fire on so high in fantasy drafts.

  • Posted: 2/10/2017 7:14pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley told head coach Sean McVay he wanted another chance to work with running backs coach Skip Peete. 'When you've got a key player like that, you want to try to demonstrate that you're going to listen,' McVay said.

    Huddle Up: Gurley was one of the biggest disappointments of 2016, and with the Rams in rebuilding mode, a major rebound isn't a guarantee. On the plus side, he is going to see plenty of touches, and he has enough upside to grab as a RB2.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 6:43pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed 23 times for 67 yards and a touchdown in the Week 16 game against the San Francisco 49ers. He also added three receptions for 20 yards on three targets.

    Huddle Up: Gurley was a giant disappointment for fantasy owners, but he likely provided a decent boost in many championship games.

  • Posted: 12/15/2016 9:08pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley had 14 carries for 38 yards and lost two yards on one catch in a 24-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: Despite the coaching change, Gurley once again struggled to find running room. Fortunately for his fantasy owners, there are only two weeks left in what has been a lost season for Gurley.

  • Posted: 12/4/2016 4:18pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed 11 times for just 38 yards in the Week 13 game against the New England Patriots and he posted two grabs for only nine yards on three targets.

    Huddle Up: Gurley continues to struggle for fantasy owners, as he has had very few good stat lines. He hasn't come close to living up to his average draft position this season.

  • Posted: 11/25/2016 2:33pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (illness) did not participate in practice due to an illness that has gone around the team, according to head coach Jeff Fisher, who also stated he expects Gurley to be fine for Week 12 versus the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Benny Cunningham would likely be called upon to handle 15 to 20 touches if Gurley needs to sit this one out, but it doesn't sound like it is going to come to that. The Saints have been playing better defense lately and the Rams have shown little evidence of getting their running game kick-started, so consider Gurley a low-end RB2 again this week.

  • Posted: 11/20/2016 8:30pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed 20 times for 76 yards and a touchdown in the Week 11 game against the Miami Dolphins. He did not have any receptions on two targets.

    Huddle Up: Gurley's 24-yard touchdown run was his first rush of 20 or more yards this season. After that first quarter run, it was more of the same of what fantasy owners have been wringing their hands about all season. He just cannot get free for big plays, and it has a lot to do with the fact he is the only playmaker on a very vanilla offense. Treat him as more of a RB2 heading into Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints.

  • Posted: 11/20/2016 6:55am ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (thigh) is expected to play in Week 11's game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Gurley was added to the injury report after being a limited participant in practice Friday, Nov. 18. Fantasy owners should continue to view him as a RB2 even though he has not reached the end zone in his last four contests and hasn't picked up more than 85 rushing yards in any game this season.

  • Posted: 11/18/2016 4:21pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (thigh) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 18, and is listed as questionable for Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Gurley was added to the injury list Friday, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation over the next few days. He has not posted more than 85 yards in any game this season and has not scored a touchdown in his last four games. He should still be a No. 2 running back for owners despite his struggles.

  • Posted: 11/18/2016 2:26pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (thigh) was added to the Week 11 injury report with a thigh injury Friday, Nov. 18, although he did play with a similar injury in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Gurley has scored in only two games and has three touchdowns overall, while his 64 yards rushing last week were his third-most. The Rams will also be breaking in No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff this week and the Miami Dolphins are rolling at the moment, all of which makes Gurley a poor candidate to end his struggles. He's a low-upside RB2 this week.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 12:57pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (thigh) ran 21 times for 64 yards and caught one pass for eight yards in Week 10 against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Gurley's struggles march on another week, as the consensus top-five draft pick this summer has been brutal for gamers. Week 11 brings the Miami Dolphins, and likely more pedestrian play for the second-year star.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 8:49am ET

    Confirming a previous report, Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (thigh) will play in Week 10's game against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Gurley has had a disappointing 2016 campaign and is facing one of the league's best defenses against the run this week. He should be viewed as a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2 in most fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 11/12/2016 11:50pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (thigh) is expected to play in the team's Week 10 game against the New York Jets, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Huddle Up: Most figured Gurley would play, but his matchup doesn't look any more enticing. Deploy him as an RB2 and hope this is the week the Rams actually prove they can run the ball.

  • Posted: 11/11/2016 2:56pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (thigh) was able to practice in full Friday, Nov. 11, and he is listed as questionable for the Week 10 game against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Gurley has a tough matchup Sunday, as the Jets rank fourth in the NFL against the run by allowing just 81.0 yards per game with six touchdowns through nine outings. It looks like another tough week for Gurley and his impatient throng of fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 11/10/2016 3:16pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (thigh) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 10.

    Huddle Up: Even as one of the few featured running backs in the NFL, Gurley has not produced as much as expected this year. A tough matchup against the New York Jets is just an insult to his injury. Assuming Gurley is healthy enough to play, he's a borderline RB1 but is probably safer to start as an RB2.

  • Posted: 11/9/2016 7:07pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (thigh) was held out of practice Wednesday, Nov. 9, as a precaution. He was simply resting and is expected to be fine for the Week 10 game against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: While Gurley is expected to play, he will be facing the league's fourth-ranked rush defense. The Jets give up just 81.0 yards per game with six touchdowns. Treat Gurley more as an RB2 in all fantasy leagues for this difficult matchup.

  • Posted: 11/9/2016 5:22pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (thigh) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Gurley is in any danger of missing the team's Week 10 game. He has been posting solid numbers recently because he has been involved in the passing game in addition to the running game. He should be considered a No. 1 or No. 2 running back in most leagues.

  • Posted: 11/7/2016 8:19pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley will face the New York Jets in Week 10, and it might be another tough day for Gurley. The Jets rank fourth in the NFL yielding just 81.0 yards per game with six touchdowns.

    Huddle Up: Gurley has been a bust for fantasy owners who selected him early on draft day. He'll get a crack at the league's 30th-ranked rush defense in Week 11 against the Miami Dolphins, so be patient if you're a fantasy owners of Gurley.

  • Posted: 11/7/2016 5:46pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley is not receiving enough carries, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.

    Huddle Up: Gurley is actually eighth in the league with 146 carries, but he only has 451 yards to show for them. The Rams aren't relying on him as much as they want to, but they've had to pass more than they've wanted to at times in order to try to keep up with opponents. Gurley has been a disappointment, but he's still one of the few remaining bellcow backs in the NFL. Continue to start him on a weekly basis.

  • Posted: 11/6/2016 8:09pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley was mostly bottled up again in Week 9 against the Carolina Panthers, running 12 times for 48 yards while hauling in four balls for 26 yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Gurley was mostly drafted in the first round by fantasy owners, but he has looked more like a mid-round pick this season. Treat him as more of a RB2 in most formats until further notice. He'll face the New York Jets in Week 10 on the road.

  • Posted: 11/4/2016 8:23pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley has been held to 58 yards or less in five of seven games this year, and Carolina Panthers DE Wes Horton said he expects to hold Gurley to 30 or 40 rushing yards in their Week 9 meeting.

    Huddle Up: Gurley's upside has been curbed by poor quarterback play, but a heavy workload and increasing role in the passing game should allow him to remain no worse than a RB2.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 10:31am ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed for 57 yards on 15 carries against the New York Giants in Week 7. He also caught six passes for 35 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Gurley has not posted great numbers so far this season but will continue to be a big part of the offense moving forward. Gurley should be a No. 1 or No. 2 running back against most opponents.

  • Posted: 10/18/2016 5:44pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley is averaging a mere 2.9 yards per carry through six games this season. He is tied for third among running backs with 119 attempts, but has only gained 346 yards on the ground. He has been more involved in the passing game, however. After catching 21 passes in 13 games last year, Gurley has already caught 15 passes in six games this year.

    Huddle Up: Much of Gurley's struggles involve poor offensive line play and a relative lack of respect for the Rams' passing game. He is one of the most talented, young backs in the NFL and his PPR value has increased, too, at least for now. While trading him isn't out of the question, holding on to him may reap better rewards down the road, especially in keeper leagues.
