The Los Angeles Rams picked up the fifth-year options on running back Todd Gurley and cornerback Marcus Peters on Tuesday, according to sources. In head coach Sean McVay's offense in 2017, Gurley excelled, setting career highs in carries (279), yards (1,305), rushing scores (13), receptions (64), receiving yards (788) and receiving touchdowns (six). He will once again be the focal point of a rising offense and is worth a high first-round selection in drafts. Peters was acquired in a trade with KC this offseason and will immediately upgrade the team's secondary as one of the best young cornerbacks in the game.
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley has been seemingly unstoppable all season long, and that continued in Saturday's contest against the Falcons. He rushed 14 times for 101 yards and caught four passes for 10 yards through the air. He probably should've seen seven to eight more carries, but special teams turnovers hurt the Rams offense. Gurley finished the season with 1,305 rushing yards and 13 rushing touchdowns. He collected 19 total touchdowns and put himself in the MVP discussion. Gurley's incredible season has made him a top-three fantasy pick next season.
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley should be in for a solid performance against the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday. Gurley was able to win some fantasy owners championships and might even be able to win himself an MVP award. He finished the season with 1,305 rushing yards and 13 rushing touchdowns. He scored 19 total touchdowns on the season and should be in the discussion for MVP. Gurley needs to be owned in leagues this weekend, because opponents can't figure out how to stop him.
