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 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Atlanta Falcons
Todd Gurley was inactive in Week 6 with a "thigh contusion", and practiced in a limited fashion on both Wednesday 10/16 and Thursday 10/17. Friday's practice will ultimately determine whether he plays on Sunday, and missing last week's game has lowered his overall fantasy ranking to RB17. Gurley has put together just two RB1 performances through six weeks.

If he's healthy enough to play, Gurley will face off against the Atlanta Falcons defense sporting 24.6 aFPA to running backs, 16th-most in the league. With Malcolm Brown questionable for this game, Gurley and Darrell Henderson are expected to share the workload, limiting Gurley's ceiling for volume. The Falcons are also allowing the second-most aFPA to quarterbacks, which is likely to entice the Rams to lean heavily on the passing game. Gurley is a mid-range RB2 start for Week 7.
