[Dynasty] Todd Gurley

Recommended Posts

He's in the same "unfair advantage" category as vintage LT, Holmes, and Faulk.

Makes having used a first round pick on him in 2016 (redraft) sting even more.

He has to be banged up. 

I was thinking the same thing. He didn’t look himself and I’m not talking his obvious subpar stat line

He looked fine to me. Maybe McVay wanted to do an air raid most of the game. He had 12 carries and three receptions, which is 4 less carries and one less reception than he had last week. I think his performance had more to do with the play calling versus anything wrong with Gurley.

I dunno. You have to admit, passing 3 straight times on that last drive instead of running at least once was a bit strange.

There was nothing wrong with Hunt, and he only got two more carries than Gurley, and one more reception.  It seemed to be a showcase of dueling QBs.

The Steelers kept passing it at the GL at the end of the Jaguars game, and they had a TO left, so they could have ran Conner. Ben ended up running on the last play, but that wasn't the original play in the huddle according to him.

Want a mulligan here? ;)

So I saw McVay's comments about a tweaked ankle? Was there any other reports about severity of injury?

He said he'll be fine. Considering he played the whole game with it and he has a bye to rest it up I tend to believe him.

Yeah, I just didn't see actual injury news, just the coach speaking about it, when I looked it up, so I was just seeing what information you had.  Thank you

In that article they have a video clip of the play, early in the game, where he gets tackled out of bounds in an odd way where the defender lands on the back of his calves/ankles. I actually said to my sons "oh man! that was a weird tackle. he's lucky his knee or ankle didn't get wrecked".  Guess I called it. 😐

We all knew it but the broadcasters never had a clue. 

Lol ... “broadcasters”

 

That broadcast crew is the worst. I don’t know how the French they are collecting a paycheck.

 

Gurkey will be fine going forward. But yes, he was obviously dinged up -

Speaking Tuesday, Rams coach Sean McVay confirmed Todd Gurley was limited by an ankle issue against the Chiefs but is expected to be fine going forward.

Gurley rolled his ankle early in the proceedings but stayed in the game. He was never announced with an injury. In one of the more tilting fantasy moments of the season, he failed to find the end zone in the Rams' 54-51 victory. With the Week 12 bye to heal up, Gurley will resume dominating against the Lions in Week 13.

Yup. Had the same feeling about that play. Think I literally winced when it happened.

So is John Kelly Gurley's 'cuff or what? 

M. Brown now out, but Kelly has been inactive every week. Also, there's some other RB who has been active but plays special teams. 

Have a bye but wouldn't mind having some Gurley insurance, but not sure he's worth cuffing if Kelly isn't even the lock to get touches in case Gurley is out.

Anyone else bothering??

Yikes! Bad half. 11 yards rushing. I know the Bears D was good but come on Rams. 

I need Gurley and Trubisky to get 15 points in the 2nd half!

Gurley helped win a lot of fantasy football champions last year with his performance week 14-16.  Probably going to cost a lot of them without a much better second half.

man he looked gimpy falling in to the endzone for the 2nd td. saints, rams and bears all play in late window next week. scenario exists that the rams lock in to the 2 seed during the game. right now that is a secondary concern though... hope this knee issue doesnt limit him too much in week 16

Get his handcuff to play it safe, if you haven’t already.

I have Brown in dynasty but someone else already has Kelly. So that kind of sucks. Imagine a lot of dynasty owners are in same boat in that they already own Brown. Didn't watch game, but sounds like he came back in. I know it's just Cards next week, but they are now in do or die for a bye so hopefully he goes!

Pitt/NO game is the same time as the Rams, plus the Rams still need to hold off Chicago for a bye

I like your handle, I like your style and I liked your post.

McVey said some inflammation in his knee.  I suspect he'll give it a go in a game where they're still in it for the 1 seed and trying to hold Chicago off for a bye.  Also they need to get the offense right.

John Kelly came in briefly after Gurley hurt his ankle. He had two unimpressive runs and then Gurley came back in.

John Kelly played on 7 offensive snaps 2 rushing attempts 4 yards

Justin Davis played on 4 offensive snaps 1 rushing attempt 0 yards

Neither RB was targeted in the passing game.

Davis did have a 19 yard run in the previous game against Chicago. I don't know much about him.

I'm not bothering as Brown was iffy insurance to begin with. Kelly just isn't worth what's probably on your bench already.

Rotoworld:

Todd Gurley (knee) didn't practice Wednesday.

Coach Sean McVay said he expects Gurley to play this week despite the missed practice. The Rams don't have much to gain by pushing Gurley in a game they can win without him, so his Week 16 status is far from a lock.

Todd Gurley (knee) remained sidelined on Thursday.

Coach Sean McVay has said he expects Gurley to suit up against the Cardinals, but there will be real intrigue about his status if he remains sidelined on Friday. Some combination of Justin Davis, John Kelly and C.J. Anderson would carry the load were Gurley to sit. Davis is battling a shoulder injury of his own.
