Rams HC Sean McVay said Thursday that RB Todd Gurley won't be on a snap count in this weekend's opener against the Panthers. Gurley's usage has been 1 of the biggest mysteries in fantasy football all offseason. While his volume could still fluctuate throughout the season, it sounds like he's in for a feature role in Week 1. He should be glued into fantasy lineups as a RB1.

Rams RB Todd Gurley's start to training camp has been an "absolute success," according to The Athletic's Vincent Bonsignore. "He looked every bit as explosive, athletic and dynamic as the Todd Gurley who was the 2017 NFL Offensive Player of the Year and the one who was pushing for consideration for the same award late last season," Bonsignore writes. It's only early August. And this is just 1 beat writer's observation. But it continues a string of positive reports on Gurley over the past month after things were sounding bleak early in the offseason. Gurley and his arthritic knee still carry plenty of risk in fantasy drafts -- but he also boasts league-winning upside at his 2nd-round price tag.

After visiting Rams camp, Yahoo's Charles Robinson projects RBs Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown to combine for about 35% of the offensive snaps this season. That'd leave about 65% for RB Todd Gurley. It'd be a noticeable reduction for Gurley, who played 86% of the offensive snaps in his 14 regular season games last year and 81% in 2017. Note, though, that only 4 other RBs topped a 65% snap rate last season. So even with less time on the field, Gurley could still finish near the top of the league in touches.

"Todd's going to be ready to go," Rams HC Sean McVay told ESPN's Lindsey Thiry on Friday, deeming Gurley fit to participate in Saturday's opening camp practice. "We've got a specific plan in terms of monitoring his workload and a lot of that will be predicated on the feedback he gives to us. But he's feeling good." And thus begins the biggest camp storyline in fantasy football.

Rams RB Todd Gurley is "feeling great," HC Sean McVay said. "I think, you know, one of the things about Todd is (he's a) great competitor," McVay added. "I think he's earned the right to be able to have the plan that we had this offseason. Can't wait to get him back going. I know he's ready to go." It's been all doom and gloom regarding Gurley's knee this offseason, but we'll start to get a better idea of his status when Rams training camp opens next weekend. Gurley's ADP has dipped into the middle of Round 2.

Injury Predictor

Gurley completely avoided the injury report during his stellar 2017, missing his only game in Week 17 after the Rams had clinched the 3 seed. Through 3 years, the only games Gurley has missed came when Rams coaches eased him into action as a 2015 rookie coming off his left ACL tear in November 2014. His hefty workloads look like the only reason for any durability concern with Gurley, and you're certainly not moving him down your fantasy football rankings because he gets the ball too much.
