Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay isn't aware of any medical procedures that running back Todd Gurley (knee) needs in the offseason. Gurley had a physical exam on Tuesday, but McVay has yet to discuss the results with the team trainers yet. The Rams and Gurley continue to maintain that his knee injury wasn't the result of his lack of touches throughout the postseason after he missed the final two games of the regular season. It's a mystery why the NFL's top running back was used so little in the Super Bowl and in the NFC Championship game, even if C.J. Anderson had proved capable of handling a bigger workload. Whatever the case, it seems as though Gurley's knee will be fine heading into the 2019 season. He'll be the no-brainer first overall pick in fantasy drafts.
Despite not playing much in the Super Bowl loss to the Patriots, Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley continues to insist that his knee is fine. He didn't play much at all in the first half and finished with just 10 carries for 35 yards and one catch for a loss of one yard in the game. The star running back missed the final two games of the regular season and didn't look right in the playoffs. I know theres been a lot of concern about my knee but I really am fine, Gurley said. His knee issue is concerning, but Gurley isn't expected to need surgery in the offseason and he should once again be the top fantasy selection in 2019 drafts.
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley (knee) is unlikely to have workhorse duties in the Super Bowl on Sunday against the Patriots. Due to his knee injury and conditioning questions, Gurley and C.J. Anderson are expected to split carries, as was the case in the NFC Championship against the Saints. Running backs coach Skip Peete essentially told Gurley this two weeks ago. "If you look at a guy who hasn't really practiced in two or three weeks, then all of the sudden has to go out there and play (in the playoffs), the cardio isn't where it needs to be to play 60 or 70 plays," Peete said. Gurley finished with just four carries for 10 yards and a touchdown against the Saints after running 16 times for 115 yards and a score against Dallas in the Divisional round. Gurley should be able to carry the ball more than four times, but he shouldn't be expected to have closer to 20 carries in this game, making him too risky of a DFS choice for the price.
