[Dynasty] Todd Gurley

Recommended Posts

Quote

Todd Gurley rushed 14 times for 56 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons' Week 1 loss to the Seahawks, adding two receptions for one yard. 

It was a solid Falcons debut for Gurley, who found the end zone with a leaping one-yard score in the second quarter. The volume was limited because the Falcons spent the vast majority of the game playing from behind. It was 14-3 Seahawks in the first quarter and 28-12 at halftime. Gurley looked reasonably limber going side to side, not just downhill. Brian Hill played as his direct backup, handling five touches. Minus 4-5 additional touches, today was basically what fantasy players signed up for when they made Gurley their RB2. A potential shootout in the Cowboys is on deck for Week 2.

Todd Gurley rushed 14 times for 80 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons' Week 3 loss to the Bears.

It was easily Gurley's best game as a Falcon, even showing a faint illusion of wiggle to create yards on his own. He's still not the same player as he used to be, as Gurley only has three receptions through three games, but the Falcons likely will continue to rely on him as the team's lead ball carrier. That volume places Gurley in RB2 territory against the Packers in Week 4.

Todd Gurley rushed 16 times for 57 yards and two touchdowns in the Falcons' Week 4 loss to the Packers.

He caught his lone target for six yards. Gurley scored the Falcons' only two touchdowns with runs of five and three yards. He now has four touchdowns through four games despite the low rushing yardage output and nearly nonexistent pass-game usage. Gurley is getting by on the touchdowns as a fantasy RB2. He has a great Week 5 matchup at home against the Panthers.

4 TD's this year in 4 weeks.

15-60 ish every week and pretty much all the GL attempts.

Great Flex/RB3 unless/until ATL makes a major change based on the record.  Their schedule eases up so if they can win a few games and not kill morale or present a 'play the new guy' he has already out performed.

I took him in as my 3rd  RB at RD 5 P1 with most of the usual suspects ahead of him.  Most notable after - MG 111?

Or sell high for a flyer?

also struggling with this.  they work hill in, but gurley still has one of the more reliable workloads and like you said, a soft schedule coming up.  I feel like he is better to hold and try to sell in a few weeks if possible.  I'm not sure how inspired anyone will be after last night's performance.  he doesn't look great, though i don't think that the line is doing him too many favors.  He was still able to bounce a few, including that last TD.

I’m with you two too. He’s putting up points at the goal line but the snap% has been just a tad over 50% and he’s not getting many targets. And he got a bit lucky to get that second td late. If that goes differently I don’t think he was going back in. Buttttttt...the schedule is really favorable for the next month so I’m stuck between selling semi high and waiting for a 2-3 more weeks to try and sell a bit higher. I have major concerns about the team/him having incentive to play him a lot and him to play hard late in year when they’re 2-9.

Todd Gurley rushed 14 times for 121 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons' Week 5 loss to the Panthers.

Gurley got the day started with a 35-yard touchdown that required nothing but sprinting up the middle. As always, the Panthers defense looked miserable defending the run. Gurley can still run at top speeds. It's the lateral movement that's more of an issue for the veteran. Despite the Falcons looking broken on offense under Dan Quinn, Gurley is seeing RB2 volume and will see two more easy matchups with the Vikings and Lions next.

So those that have watched Atlanta this year...is Gurley back? Is he still considering a good dynasty asset? Looks like he's posted pretty good numbers in fantasy (save week 2) and the last 3 weeks has been a top 6 producing RB. Smoke and mirrors or no? I have an offer in a PPR league where I could use RB help to trade Sutton for Gurley and a 2nd, just curious if others think he's worth that both this year and long term...any thoughts?

Smoke and mirrors is my call. All RB's have looked good vs the Panthers. Yet he keeps getting TD's, so if you think that is sustainable, then he might be your guy.

I'm just not sure...but my team is pretty loaded at WR (Hopkins, Ridley, AJ Brown, Claypool, Sutton, Diontae Johnson) and I'm a lot weaker at RB (Chubb, Gibson, L. Murray, Edmonds) so while I hate to make panic moves seems Gurley would instantly upgrade my RB starter but will I quickly regret? Just don't know how those knees are holding up...

I am a Gurley owner and i am nervous starting him every week. He gets most goal line carries so that's great. He's still a big back with good vision but he looks slooowwwww. Even this past weekend on his 25 yard TD run..he looked slow and if it wasn't for the huge hole he went through, he didn't have the speed. There is also the issue with Ryan. The passing game has been awful and for some reason...they don't reqlly create plays for Gurley. 

I start Gurley every week and so far so good but i don't think he looks good at all.

Gurley of old will never be back.

He can't move laterally at all anymore / he can't get the corner anymore. Isn't to say he can't be average North-South guy. The speed from point A to point B might still be there but the initial burst is gone.

The receiving isn't there anymore either. Been the case for the past 1.3 seasons. He's had 1 game this year of over 2 catches or 6 yards. 

Everything about his game screams he's in the late stage of his career even at 26.

I think it is sustainable. Even last year with the Rams he scored 12 TDs in 15 games played. Gurley has one hell of a nose for the endzone he has been doing it his whole career. I love the career milestone he achieved this weekend. 75 career touchdowns in 78 regular season games. Only LT, Jim Brown, and Emmitt Smith have reached that milestone in less time.

I only play redraft so I can't really comment on dynasty. As far as redraft goes I couldn't be happier with this guy. I drafted Gurley expecting him to be my RB2 with RB1 upside and he has met expectations. His worse game this year was week 2 with 61 yards and no TDs. However I was thrilled that he had 21 carries that game. This season he has seen no less than 14 carries in a game and he gets the majority of goal line touches. I'll take any RB seeing that kind of volume.

Yup.  This.

Trying to move him for a WR since I have Kamara, Robinson and Gibson. Part of me wants to sell him while I can, but part of me thinks it may be a mistake.

Struggling what to do in dynasty.  I'm 4-1 despite losing Saquon for the year, with Sanders/Gurley/Freeman/Breida/McKinnon/Harris as my healthy RBs.  (I can start from 1-3 RB).

If I trade Gurley for future value, that feels like punting 2020 when I'm in first place thru 5 weeks.  But if I try to ride him and contend this year, he may fall apart and lose all value, and I probably fall out of contention as a result.

Maybe I can split the difference - find a RB-needy team and get a WR/TE that can produce this year and in future.

Todd Gurley rushed 20 times for 47 yards in the Falcons' Week 6 win over the Vikings.

Gurley was featured in the first half far more than he should have been. Every Gurley 1st-and-10 carry is a win for the opposing defense with Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley healthy. As we saw in Week 5, Gurley is still capable of running in a straight line when a hole opens, but he creates little on his at this stage. His RB2 volume is here to stay, however, with Atlanta likely to rank inside the top-10 in total plays. The Lions' nonexistent rushing defense is up next.
