Last year at this time, Todd Gurley faced question after question about how his knee was healing and when he might be ready to play. That line of questioning continued through Week 4, when the running back made his first start and ended up with 146 yards rushing in the victory over Arizona.
As Fisher put it on Saturday, 2016 already has a feel unlike 2015 for the second-year RB.
“This is Todd’s first full offseason program, so that’s different for him,” Fisher said. “He’s in great shape right now.”
Fisher said the bulk of Gurley’s work will come in practice. In short, don’t expect to see too much of him in the four exhibition games. Gurley averaged 91.6 rushing yards in his final 12 games, which is a 16-game pace of 1,465 yards. But he only caught 21 passes for 188 yards, which serves to limit his value in PPR formats. If his offseason work as a receiver pays off during the season, that would change.
