Rams RB Todd Gurley will get more preseason work

Monday, August 14, 2017, 8:43am

ESPN - [Full Article]

It took four minutes for Todd Gurley to match his preseason workload from last season.

Gurley received four carries -- and gained 2 yards -- on the Los Angeles Rams' first possession on Saturday, which was extended by the Dallas Cowboys' muffed punt. He didn't play in the first preseason game last year. Or the third. Or the fourth. He began the 2016 regular season with only four preseason carries, then proceeded to be one of the NFL's least-productive running backs.

Fantasy Impact:

First-year Rams coach Sean McVay wants to change that, the story said. He's mindful of keeping Gurley healthy and fresh for the regular-season opener, but "being in a new system, and just for the overall continuity of our offense, I think it's important for him to be out there," McVay said.

Scouting Report

Week 6 at Jacksonville Jaguars

Todd Gurley posted his first dud of the season, rushing 14 times for 43 yards in the Rams’ Week 5 loss to the Seahawks. He also lost a fumble as the Rams turned the ball over five times on the day. The day got off to a rough start for Gurley, who appeared to score a touchdown on the team’s opening drive but instead fumbled off the pylon. The Seahawks did a great job containing Gurley and forcing Jared Goff to beat them.

Gurley is back on the RB1 radar this week as the Rams travel to Jacksonville to take on the Jaguars. The Jags have an upstart defense but they’ve struggled against the run this season. They rank as the No. 28 fantasy defense against running backs. Ranked as our RB4 for Week 6, make sure Gurley is in your lineup this Sunday.
