Todd Gurley News
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley told NFL Network analyst and Rams radio color commentator Maurice Jones-Drew this week that he's not hurt, but Jones-Drew said the team is planning to use Gurley less in 2019 in order to keep him fresh all year. "I think you can expect (22 touches per game). But he may not be on the field for 80 snaps," Jones-Drew said. Gurley played 75.8 percent of the regular season offensive snaps last year (56.6 snaps per game), and he's averaged 22.7 touches, 135.3 total yards and 1.4 touchdowns per game the last two seasons. However, he played just 56.2 percent of the snaps in the postseason last year. The Rams fully intend on using Malcolm Brown and rookie Darrell Henderson in the backfield to keep Gurley fresh, which makes him much more of a risk as a high-end RB1 in the first round of fantasy drafts.
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley's (knee) days of being a bell-cow running back may be over due to concerns about his left knee. Gurley has been held out of on-field team practices this offseason for a "planned training program" and is trying to shed half a dozen pounds in an attempt to lighten the load on his knee. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that it's understood in LA that Gurley will no longer be the bell-cow back he's been the first four years in the NFL. "The days of Todd Gurley just being the straight-up, every-down bell cow are probably over, just based on his knee, his age, the position, the amount of carries he's had," Rapoport said. Gurley injured his knee in Week 15 last year and was limited down the stretch and into the postseason. The Rams also drafted Darrell Henderson in the third round to take pressure off of Gurley this upcoming season. Gurley will remain an RB1 in 2019, but the risk might appear to outweigh the reward now.
Los Angeles Rams general manager Les Snead said it's unlikely that running back Todd Gurley (knees) takes part in preseason action this year. The Rams are one of the most cautious teams when it comes to playing their starters in the preseason, so Gurley won't be the only one sitting out. Chronic knee issues have become a concern for the 24-year-old after he sat out down the stretch in the regular season and was severely limited in the NFC Championship and Super Bowl. Gurley is still worth a pick in the top three selections in the first round of fantasy drafts after rushing for 1,000-plus yards in three of his first four seasons, but he's also much more risky as an elite RB1.
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley (knee) has a specific and individualized offseason plan, and it doesn't include him taking part in team drills at organized team activities. Gurley wasn't present for any portion of Tuesday's session, and he was also absent on Monday. Head coach Sean McVay said Gurley has been working with outside trainer Travelle Gaines and that he has been a regular at the practice facility. His limited activity is adding to the speculation about the long-term health of his knee, which kept him out in Weeks 16 and 17 of last year. He also didn't look right in the NFC Championship game and the Super Bowl, so there will be a lot more risk involved when you consider taking him as a top-three fantasy pick this fall.
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley (knee) said he was "feeling pretty good" when asked about his knee at the team's offseason workouts on Monday. The 24-year-old had major reconstruction on his knee in 2014 while in college and re-injured it last December before playing sparingly down the stretch and through the playoffs. Head coach Sean McVay said Gurley's workload will be monitored during voluntary workouts, organized team activities and training camp, but the Rams still plan for Gurley to be the focal point of the offense, and for good reason. He ran for 1,251 yards and had 21 touchdowns in 2018 and will once again be a strong first-round pick in 2019, albeit with a little more risk now.
