Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley has seen at least 19-20 carries during each of the first two weeks. Much like last season, the Rams lean heavily on Gurley and the ability to run the ball. Gurley should continue to see the ball in Week 3 against a Chargers defense that does not defend the run game too well. Plus the Chargers are without pass rusher Joey Bosa, so that does not help their situation. Gurley should play as projected or better in Week 3.
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley left the game in Week 2 against the Cardinals with some cramping and didn't return in a 34-0 blowout win. He had just 73 total yards on the day and wasn't very effective on the ground (2.2 yards per carry), but he saved his fantasy owners with three touchdowns and two two-point conversions before he left. Gurley had 19 carries for 42 yards and all three scores on the ground, also catching three passes for 31 yards. He should be fine to play in Week 3, but keep an eye on his practice participation leading up to the game. Gurley is a no-doubt RB1 every week if he's playing.
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley has an incredible Week 2 matchup lined up against the Cardinals. Gurley finished with 108 rushing yards on 20 carries against the Raiders in Week 1. He did not score on the ground, but did catch a 19-yard pass from quarterback Jared Goff for his only score of the game. Gurley will face a Cardinals defense that allowed 161 rushing yards and 133 receiving yards to veteran Adrian Peterson and backup Chris Thompson.
