Huddle Up: Gurley probably will be limited during training camp and could sit out the entire preseason. Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation during camp to see Gurley will continue to receive a majority of the carries. He is a No. 1 running back when healthy but is a risky fantasy option because of his knee.
Posted: 7/9/2019 7:51pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley sounded very much at peace during his interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio and did not give the impression he's the least bit concerned about his knee, which has an "arthritic component" to it, according to his trainer. There's no question he's a riskier pick this year than usual, but the potential upside is enormous. Owners should be giddy if they can take advantage of the discount on him and get him as an RB2.
Posted: 6/17/2019 1:07pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley has quickly become the most polarizing early-round pick in fantasy drafts. Many owners have decided to take the arrival of Darrell Henderson as a sign the Rams believe the 24-year-old's best days are already behind him. However, it's worth wondering how Gurley has embarked on such a rigorous training program this offseason if his knee isn't in decent shape. Until something more damning comes out, Gurley appears to be worth the risk in drafts, especially if fantasy owners can land him as an RB2.
Posted: 6/11/2019 2:35pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners probably won't know anything for sure until Week 1 since the Rams have made a habit of holding out their key players throughout the preseason. The Rams' actions this offseason - most notably, moving up to draft Darrell Henderson - would suggest there is some worry in the organization, but the continued focus on Gurley's knee could also allow him to be drafted this summer at a discount. Owners who don't mind a little risk could see huge rewards if/when he slips into the second round of drafts.
Posted: 6/3/2019 7:20pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley has missed most of the offseason workouts because of his knee and may see his touches drop this upcoming season because of his knee. Fantasy players should monitor his status during training camp to determine his status. He is a No. 1 running back when healthy but is a risky pick at this point.
Posted: 5/31/2019 2:54pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley has been dealing with a knee issue since last season but should be ready for Week 1. He is a No. 1 running back in fantasy leagues when healthy, but fantasy players should keep an eye on his status during training camp.
Posted: 5/29/2019 11:38pm ET
Huddle Up: The logic is easy to follow, less weight means less stress on the knees. Obviously the team, which will not have Gurley do any on-field drills during OTAs, and the player are doing everything they can to get him through the upcoming season. The million dollar question is will it work? At this point, the status of Gurley's knee might be the most interesting storyline in all of fantasy sports. He's still an RB1, but there are unique concerns.
Posted: 5/28/2019 3:38pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley missed the final two games of the 2018 regular season and carried the ball a total of 16 times for 47 yards in the NFC Championship Game and Super Bowl combined. His obvious upside will keep him as a high-end RB1, but there's reason to be concerned.
Posted: 5/28/2019 12:32pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley was never likely to participate during OTAs anyway. The Rams' mandatory minicamp is scheduled to run June 11-13, so that could be the first real sign of whether or not the team is as comfortable with his knee issue as it is leading the public to believe. There's also a real chance Los Angeles simply doesn't allow him to take the field until training camp as well. Gurley is shaping up to be a risky fantasy bet, but one that comes with overall RB1 upside.
Posted: 4/15/2019 4:20pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley was limited during the playoffs because of his knee, but head coach Sean McVay said Gurley will have a big role in 2019. He should continue to be considered a No. 1 fantasy running back as long as he is healthy.
Posted: 4/12/2019 12:49pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley's long-term stock has taken a bit of a tumble since his knee injury in Week 15, although it hasn't helped matters that reports about a potential arthritic knee and his general manager making it a priority to reduce his workload have been so public. While the Rams would be wise to cut back a few of his reps and his durability may be a slight concern moving forward, Gurley will still be very much worth a top-five pick in fantasy drafts if he is ready to go this summer.
Posted: 3/2/2019 9:57am ET
Huddle Up: Gurley was limited during the playoffs because of his knee, so owners will need to keep an eye on his situation. He is one of the best running backs in the NFL when he is healthy and can still be a No. 1 fantasy back in 2019.
Posted: 3/1/2019 10:35am ET
Huddle Up: Whether the Rams will ever admit it or not, Gurley definitely wasn't at full health during the postseason in which he averaged only 11.3 touches per game after averaging double that (22.5) during the 14 contests he played during the regular season. For now Gurley remains a RB1 fantasy option, but that could change depending on the course of his offseason health reports.
Posted: 2/28/2019 11:00pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley has amassed 1,229 touches over the first four years of his pro career, so Snead isn't kidding about his odometer. Conversely, he won't turn 25 years old until August, which is about the time most running back begin to hit their prime. While Gurley isn't in any danger of losing significant work anytime soon, the Rams would probably like to find a back they trust enough to use for a series or two. Gurley is still easily worth considering at No. 1 in fantasy drafts, but he is not a consensus pick at that spot.
Posted: 2/20/2019 8:48am ET
Huddle Up: Gurley's lack of usage down the stretch suggests either he or McVay did not feel the back was not anywhere close to fully healthy. While Anderson admits he has no way to know for sure, a sprained knee can be a serious enough injury to keep Gurley from being able to or wanting to handle a full load. The 24-year-old should be able to enjoy a normal offseason - even if did suffer a knee sprain - and figures to be a fantasy stalwart again in 2019.
Posted: 2/5/2019 1:27pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley's Super Bowl usage was quizzical, especially since he and the Rams claim that he was not hurt. If C.J. Anderson maintains his complementary role then it will be difficult to select Gurley with the first overall pick in 2019 drafts.
Posted: 2/3/2019 8:19pm ET
Huddle Up: At this point, Gurley owners would probably welcome some sort of injury to justify his limited role throughout the playoffs. Gurley has been a workhorse and a fantasy force the last two years, but if the Rams bring back C.J. Anderson, it will be interesting to see how touches are split in 2019.
Posted: 2/3/2019 7:10pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley again split time with C.J. Anderson and was on the sidelines for several stretches. After another impressive regular season, fantasy owners have to be a little concerned about Gurley's limited role down the stretch, especially if Anderson re-signs.
Posted: 2/1/2019 2:45pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley has dealt with some knee problems over the last month or so but was not on the injury report and will receive his normal workload. He is one of the top running backs in the NFL and will be a top five pick in all fantasy drafts in 2019.
Posted: 1/29/2019 8:56am ET
Huddle Up: Gurley is by far the most talented at the position in the game, but if you're playing DFS, the lingering questions with his knee and his likely salary may be too much.
Posted: 1/26/2019 6:31am ET
Huddle Up: Gurley does not appear on the injury report and has been a full practice participant throughout the week. It should also help that he will have an extra week to rebound before Super Bowl LIII. However, this is not a favorable matchup versus the New England defense, so fantasy expectations should be somewhat tempered.
Posted: 1/25/2019 9:07am ET
Huddle Up: Gurley bounced back from missing the final two games of the regular season with a knee injury by rushing for 115 yards and a TD on 16 carries in the divisional-round win over the Cowboys, but then regressed by logging only five touches and playing 46 percent of the offensive snaps in the NFC title game. The Rams insist that Gurley isn't being hampered by his late-season knee injury, but the numbers and eye test certainly are suggesting otherwise. Perhaps the two-week break leading up to the Super Bowl will help, but for now, temper your fantasy expectations for Gurley.
Posted: 1/22/2019 7:23am ET
Huddle Up: The Patriots didn't allow a rushing touchdown the last three weeks of the regular season and have really limited opposing rushers in the playoffs. They held Melvin Gordon to 9-15-1 on the ground and Damien Williams to 10-30-1 on the ground. Gurley, who was invisible in the NFC Championship game is clearly a supreme option to those two, and he's the best back playing in the Super Bowl. However, if you're playing in daily formats, you might be better off paying for James White and another player than paying for Gurley's large salary.
Posted: 1/20/2019 8:18pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley rushed just four times, and while he did drop a couple of passes, it is almost impossible to believe that the reason he spent most of the game on the sidelines wasn't related to the knee injury he suffered late in the year. If he is banged up, he will have two weeks to prepare before the Super Bowl.
Posted: 1/20/2019 9:42am ET
Huddle Up: Throw in Gurley's late-season knee issue and the subsequent emergence of fellow RB C.J. Anderson, who out-touched Gurley 23-18 in last weekend's divisional-playoff win over the Cowboys, and there is enough reason to temper expectations for Gurley on Sunday in the Big Easy.
Posted: 1/16/2019 1:56pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley played just fine in his return to the gridiron last week, running for 115 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries. He and C.J. Anderson have suddenly formed a dynamic duo in the Rams' backfield, but Gurley remains the top threat.
Posted: 1/12/2019 8:40pm ET
Huddle Up: After resting his sore knee over the final couple of weeks of the regular season, Gurley delivered a strong outing in his return to the field. The only negative is that his brief absence has allowed fellow back C.J. Anderson to carve out a role, which could continue to cap Gurley's upside a bit during these playoffs.
Posted: 1/10/2019 1:39pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley is good to go for the divisional round. Health may not be an issue, but rust could be as he has not taken the field in a month. C.J. Anderson may spot him at times, but Gurley will handle as much as he can. He and Ezekiel Elliott are the top two running backs on the slate.
Posted: 1/9/2019 5:16pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley will be good to go for the Rams' Divisional Round clash with the Cowboys, especially since he's coming off three weeks of rest. While he's routinely one of the best RB1 weapons going, Gurley probably won't be the best value from this week's slate. He's facing a tough Dallas rush defense that was able to contain Seattle's league-leading running game in last week's affair.
Posted: 1/9/2019 2:08pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley appears to be fine and ready to go against the Dallas Cowboys, which allowed just 73 rushing yards against the Seahawks in the Wild-Card round. The Cowboys also ranked fifth in the NFL with just 94.6 yards per game allowed on the ground during the regular season. However, if anyone is gonna bust them, it's Gurley, who remains an elite fantasy option in postseason formats and DFS play.
Posted: 1/8/2019 4:23pm ET
Huddle Up: When the Rams play on Saturday Gurley will have had one day shy of a month to recover from his knee inflammation. It's do or die now, but the Rams could still implement C.J. Anderson here and there to keep Gurley fresh. Stay tuned throughout the week for updates on Gurley's status, although he could remain limited.
Posted: 1/6/2019 6:41pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley's status for the playoffs has never been in doubt, and McVay is just confirming that the star back should be rested and ready when the Rams take on the Dallas Cowboys. The Dallas defense is one of the best in the game, but Gurley's huge workload should still make him a strong option for playoff contests.
Posted: 12/31/2018 3:42pm ET
Huddle Up: C.J. Anderson has filled in splendidly for Gurley over the last two weeks, but Gurley is just a different animal. He's the key to a long playoff run for the Rams and arguably the No. 1 fantasy pick for next season.
Posted: 12/28/2018 3:56pm ET
Huddle Up: C.J. Anderson likely will receive most of the work at running back with Gurley ruled out and can be a No. 2 running back in standard leagues.
Posted: 12/28/2018 6:29am ET
Huddle Up: This is important because it makes it even more likely that he sits out of Week 17 to make sure he's healthy for the playoffs. Look for C.J. Anderson to be a high-end RB2 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Posted: 12/27/2018 1:37pm ET
Huddle Up: It may very well be the case that the Rams hold out Gurley in order to get him as fresh and as healthy as possible for a postseason run. C.J. Anderson's performance last week could make that decision easier. Anderson is a solid RB2 start at worst if Gurley is held out.
Posted: 12/24/2018 2:29pm ET
Huddle Up: Hopefully you were able to pick up C.J. Anderson off waivers in Week 16. He's the best insurance policy for Gurley owners who still have a fantasy title on the line.
Posted: 12/24/2018 6:07am ET
Huddle Up: C.J. Anderson would be a high-end RB2 after he had a 20-167-1 line in a clutch Week 16 performance if Gurley sits out again.
Posted: 12/23/2018 11:34am ET
Huddle Up: The in-and-out pendulum will not swing in the favor of Gurley's fantasy owners as the stud back will miss his first game of the season. John Kelly and C.J. Anderson as the primary backups.
Posted: 12/23/2018 8:07am ET
Huddle Up: Gurley should receive most the carries in the running game this week and can be a No. 1 fantasy running back in all leagues.
Posted: 12/22/2018 6:59am ET
Huddle Up: Gurley has not practiced all week due to a knee injury and was listed as questionable on the injury report. If he is deemed healthy enough to play, he should be started in all fantasy formats. C.J. Anderson would be the probable starter if Gurley is ruled out of Sunday's game, making him worthy of being stashed in seasonal leagues, while John Kelly is also a possibility to receive a handful of carries versus Arizona.
Posted: 12/21/2018 2:05pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley probably will be a game-time decision for the Week 16 game, so owners will need to monitor the situation over the next few days. Gurley is a starting option in all leagues when he is healthy, but owners will need other options available in case Gurley is ruled out.
Posted: 12/20/2018 5:15pm ET
Huddle Up: While head coach Sean McVay said earlier Thursday that he expects his franchise running back to play, this is still pretty concerning, especially given the matchup. Even with Gurley active, if the Rams are handily taking care of last-place Arizona, it's probable he's rested throughout the second half. No matter what, owners must continue to ride the workhorse that got them this far in the first place.
Posted: 12/19/2018 4:58pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley had to briefly come out of last week's loss opposite the Eagles, but looked fine otherwise. Thus, you have to believe he'll be in there against Arizona, and as long as that is the case, he'll bring along his usual RB1 star power in a favorable matchup.
Posted: 12/17/2018 4:55pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor Gurley's practice participation this week to see if he is in any danger of missing the Week 16 game. He is a must-start option in all leagues when he is available to play.
Posted: 12/17/2018 5:18am ET
Huddle Up: While the injury isn't serious, he could still be shut down for the final two games as this ailment gave the team a scare. Justin Davis (shoulder) could be worth stashing if his shoulder injury isn't severe.
Posted: 12/16/2018 8:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley continues to roll up big yardage totals from scrimmage and he scored two more times. He'll try to keep up his scoring ways in Week 16 in Arizona as long as he is healthy.
Posted: 12/16/2018 7:17pm ET
Huddle Up: Well that's not what fantasy owners wanted to see. He is receiving treatment on the sidelines and he has his helmet on, so we'll stay on top of it and let you know if he is ruled out. It's a close game, so there is no danger of him being rested as a precaution.
Posted: 12/9/2018 9:31pm ET
Huddle Up: For the relatively few fantasy owners of Gurley who didn't get a first-round bye in their playoffs, this game likely eliminated them from their postseason. He only had six rushing yards at the half and the Rams simply didn't get him the ball enough after the break even as Goff was in the midst of the worst performance of his career. As much as this effort stings, Gurley should be started without hesitation when the Rams return home in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Posted: 12/2/2018 3:40pm ET
Huddle Up: Gurley continues to roll up huge numbers week in and week out, regardless of opponent, venue, etc. The fantasy party will continue next weekend on the road against the Chicago Bears.
