Falcons RB Todd Gurley (knee) is active for today’s game against the Saints. He got in just 2 limited practices this week and probably still isn’t at 100%. He’s a weak fantasy play vs. New Orleans’ top-ranked RB defense.
Falcons RB Todd Gurley (knee) is expected to return for today's game vs. the Saints, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He got in just 2 limited practices this week, and it's unclear if he'll be ready for his usual role. That -- plus the matchup vs. the league's top-ranked RB defense -- leaves Gurley as just a RB3 or flex play.
Falcons RB Todd Gurley (knee) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Saints after getting in limited practices on Wednesday and Friday. It’s unclear if he’ll be able to play his normal role if he ends up active. Try to avoid Atlanta’s backfield vs. New Orleans’ top-ranked RB defense.
Falcons RB Todd Gurley (knee) will be limited in Wednesday's practice, HC Raheem Morris said. It's an upgrade from last week, when Gurley didn't practice at all. We'll keep an eye on his progress over the next couple of days.
Falcons RB Todd Gurley (knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Raiders. His status beyond Week 12 is uncertain after he missed practice all week. Gurley's absence on Sunday leaves the starting job to RB Brian Hill, who's averaged 4.4 yards per carry and caught 16 of 20 targets for 111 yards this season. He's a good bet for 15+ touches vs. Vegas' 27th-ranked RB defense.
Falcons RB Todd Gurley (knee) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. We have no details on the injury, but Gurley has a long history of knee issues. If he's unable to play vs. the Raiders this weekend, Brian Hill would step in as Atlanta's lead back.
The Falcons have been cleared to re-open their facility after no positive COVID results from Thursday's round of testing, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. The Atlanta-Minnesota game remains on for Sunday as of now. We'll let you know if that changes.
The Falcons are shutting down their facility after getting back 4 positive COVID tests on Thursday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Atlanta's game against the Vikings this weekend is now in question. Stay tuned.
Update: A source tells Schefter that the Falcons had just 1 positive test, and it wasn't a player. That has us a bit more optimistic that this game will happen this week.
Falcons OC Dirk Koetter said Tuesday that the goal this season is to get a healthy Todd Gurley 15 touches per game at minimum with 25 as the max. "Healthy" is the key qualifier, of course. Take this projection with a grain of salt even beyond that qualifier. Volume can change drastically throughout a season based on player performance and game flow. But it's at least nice to hear that the Falcons think Gurley is capable of handling that type of workload. For perspective, 28 RBs averaged 15+ touches per game last year; only 10 averaged 20+.
The Falcons have reached a deal with free-agent RB Todd Gurley, less than a day after the Rams released him. Gurley showed us last season that he's no longer built for the workhorse role he shouldered for 3 full seasons with L.A. But he's still likely to lead the Atlanta backfield for 2020. We'll see whether the Falcons add anything else significant to a backfield that returns Ito Smith and Qadree Ollison (with Brian Hill a restricted free agent) after dumping Devonta Freeman. But Atlanta is about as good a landing spot as owners could have hoped for Gurley's fantasy outlook. He looks solid in the Round 4-5 range in current fantasy football drafting.
The Rams announced Wednesday they've released RB Todd Gurley. He will still count $20.15 against the salary cap over the next 2 years, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. The timing of the move keeps them from having to pay another $10.5 million in salary and bonuses this year. Gurley was obviously not the same player in 2019 after being dogged by a knee issue over the 2nd half of 2018. He now becomes the latest clear argument against giving an RB a big 2nd contract. That said, Gurley will catch on elsewhere and likely remain fantasy relevant. We'll see about that landing spot. The Rams, meanwhile, return Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown at the top of the RB depth chart. Henderson now looks set up for a breakout 2nd year after limited opportunities in his rookie season.
Rams RB Darrell Henderson (ankle) is out for Sunday’s finale against the Cardinals. That’ll only matter if L.A. decides to rest RB Todd Gurley. In that case, Malcolm Brown would be left as the feature back.
Rams RB Malcolm Brown (ankle) practiced all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday’s game against the Steelers. We’ll see how Brown and Darrell Henderson divvy up work behind Todd Gurley, but neither Brown nor Henderson can be trusted in Week 10 fantasy lineups.
Rams RB Malcolm Brown (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice. HC Sean McVay said afterward that Brown is "trending in the right direction" for this weekend's game against the Steelers. His return could put another dent in Todd Gurley's workload and would remove Darrell Henderson from RB3/Flex consideration.
Rams RB Malcolm Brown (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bengals in London. With Brown sidelined last week, Todd Gurley played 61% of the offensive snaps and handled 18 carries and 1 target, while rookie Darrell Henderson played 35% of the snaps and got 11 carries and 1 target. Gurley is a borderline RB1 vs. Cincinnati's league-worst RB defense, and Henderson is in the RB3/flex mix.
Rams RB Todd Gurley (quad) isn’t listed on the final Week 7 injury report after graduating to a full practice on Friday. RB Malcolm Brown (ankle) missed practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Falcons. Rookie Darrell Henderson will serve as Los Angeles’ #2 RB in this one, but Gurley should be in for plenty of volume in a likely shootout.
Rams RB Todd Gurley (quad) told reporters after Thursday's practice that he's "doing better" but wouldn't commit to being ready for this weekend's game against the Falcons, according to ESPN's Lindsay Thiry. RB Malcolm Brown, meanwhile, missed practice again on Thursday. We'll get another update on this backfield on Friday afternoon.
