[Dynasty] Todd Gurley

Recommended Posts

Todd Gurley rushed for 108 yards on 23 carries and hauled in 3-of-5 targets for 39 yards and one touchdown in the Rams' Week 1 win over the Raiders.

The Rams' offense understandably started slow as no starters played at any point in the preseason. Gurley still found a way to produce, catching a 19-yard shovel pass from Jared Goff in the first quarter for his only score of the night. Los Angeles eventually fed him down the stretch, constantly putting the rock in his belly and allowing him to ice the game. With rookie John Kelly inactive, backup RB Malcolm Brown (1-5) was the only other running back to see even a single carry. It's a tremendous start for those who drafted Gurley No. 1 overall.

Wow, 10 posts in this thread this year. 

 

Everyone appears to be in agreement then

Yep.  He was, to me and many others, the unquestioned number 1 player on the board this year.  Tremendous player who can do it all on a great team.

It was painful watching McVay dialing up pass plays on 1st and 2nd last night late in the 4th and not giving this guy the ball.  Losing by less than 3 points being the second highest scoring team this week.

Not much to discuss. Stud. Doing as expected. He'll finish season as RB1

Very happy I landed the #1 pick this year.  Even though I'm 3-2 this season, I'm in 3rd place (2nd highest scoring team and 2nd most points scored against) and have Ingram back now.  Have an awesome tandem going forward.

Had a lower draft pick this year but gave up a heavy price in a trade for him. Worth every penny

I have the exact same story - including 3-2 record, and Ingram.

Todd Gurley rushed 28 times for 208 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Rams' Week 6 win over the Broncos, adding two receptions for 17 additional yards.

One week after Isaiah Crowell demolished the Broncos' crumbling run defense, Gurley wrecked it for a new career high in rushing yards. Gurley was ripping chunk gains essentially every time he touched the ball, averaging 7.42 yards per carry. For the season, Gurley's YPC now rests at 4.82, while he's scored 11 total touchdowns, putting him on pace for 29. Gurley should run all over the 49ers, who will be playing on a short week, in Week 7.

Gurley's season is absurd. His performance going back to last year is insane. And I swear it feels like it's still going somewhat unnoticed.

Just tied Priest Holmes for most TDs through 7 games with 14. 

still 13 mins in this game - he could break it today. 

Before the season when I was saying how happy I was to have the 1.01, several folks pointed out how no one in 10 years has repeated as the 1.01 value. 

Starting to get the feeling Gurley will break that trend - my god he’s a joy to have on my team. :wub:

He and McVay are a match made in heaven, love that they paid him and he's locked in there.

Damn. Looks like they're putting the backups in. If they aren't letting Goff play, doubt they put Gurley back in.

Sucks for fantasy purposes, but I can't say I blame them. Ah, well. Still another quality outing.

MFL stopped updating right before Lutz kicked that last FG.

In my 0.5 point PPR league, his lowest score this season was 22.2 in Week 1. That's absurd.

The league I have him has bonuses & PPR.

his production has been utterly ridiculous.

Receiving TD?

 

Edit:. Awesome....just looked.   I thought he had "just" the 2 rushing touchdowns

Probably figured Gurley owners don't really need it.

Guy is freaking nuts. Last start to the year like this I can recall was prob one of LT’s ridiculous years. 

Thankfully landed the #1 randomly in 2 FFPC leagues and of course took him.

2020 is still two years away, so we don't have to worry about that for a while.

:wub: Gurley this year. I can't even be annoyed by the play at the end (smart football play always trumps everything else).  He is money every single week.
