Rams RB Todd Gurley unlikely to play in the preseason, will rotate when healthy

Rams HC Jeff Fisher: Unlikely you’ll see Todd Gurley in preseason. Even if he’s 100%, he’ll rotate with Tre Mason, who is “special.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Gurley is widely considered to be the best running back in the 2015 draft class, but he’s recovering from a November ACL tear. He’ll be nine months into his recovery in August, but he avoided the PUP list at the start of training camp, which is a great sign for his potential Week 1 availability. Typically, an athlete can return to their sport six months after surgery, but that doesn’t mean they’ll be game-ready. Prospective owners should draft Tre Mason if possible as insurance. When Gurley returns, he should provide high end RB2 numbers if he begins to get starter’s touches, though talk of a rotation is worrisome.
