Rams RB Todd Gurley getting less work

ESPN - [Full Article]

Another week, another struggle for Todd Gurley.

The Los Angeles Rams' running back was held to 48 rushing yards in Sunday's 13-10 loss to the Carolina Panthers, marking the 15th time in the last 16 games he has been held below 100 yards.

Once again, he also didn't get the workload.

Gurley received only 12 carries in what was a close game throughout, two weeks after getting only 15 carries in a loss to the New York Giants and three weeks after getting only 14 carries in a loss to the Detroit Lions. Facing a Panthers defense that had allowed the NFL's fewest rushing yards per carry, Gurley got the ball on back-to-back snaps only once -- on the Rams' first drive of the game.

Fantasy Impact: 

Down the stretch Benny Cunningham was on the field because he's what HC Jeff Fisher calls the team's two-minute RB, the story said. Since his 142-yard breakout first game, Gurley is averaging just 61 yards a game since then.
