Draft note
by John Paulsen
Gurley played 14 games last season before having a setback with his knee. He averaged 22.5 touches for 130.8 yards and 1.5 touchdowns per game, which resulted in 24.0 points per game in half-PPR formats, far and away the highest average at his position. Unfortunately, he tweaked his knee in Week 15, sat out the last two games of the regular season, and produced mixed results in the team’s three postseason games. He had 18 touches for 118 yards and a touchdown against the Cowboys, five touches for 13 yards and a score against the Saints, and then 11 touches for 34 yards against the Patriots in the Super Bowl. C.J. Anderson out-touched Gurley 46 to 34 in the three playoff games. The Rams chose not to re-sign Anderson, which is a vote of confidence for Gurley and his knee, but they did trade up to get Darrell Henderson in the draft. HC Sean McVay reportedly thought that Henderson was the most dangerous offensive player in the draft. Gurley’s workload will be scaled back, the question is how much. He’s also likely to miss a game or two even if he remains fairly healthy. At this point, he’s worth the risk near the 2/3 turn in 12-team drafts, though risk-averse owners may want to look elsewhere.

LAR RB Todd Gurley - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs Arizona Cardinals
Todd Gurley has turned out to be a significant fantasy value at running back in 2019, exceeding value at his ADP and defying expectations of an injury-limited season. He stands as fantasy's RB12 through Week 16, and he's been an RB1 or RB2 for 11 of 14 games played, missing just one game in Week 6.

Unfortunately, the Rams' loss to the 49ers last week knocked them out of playoff contention, making it fairly unlikely that Gurley will play many (or any) snaps in Week 17. Only their 2020 draft slot will be affected by this game's outcome, and the Rams traded their first-round pick to Jacksonville for Jalen Ramsey. Only two teams have allowed a higher aFPA to running backs than the Cardinals, but alas, Gurley probably won't have the opportunity to run them over.
