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 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.

Rams RB Todd Gurley (quad) will participate in individual drills at Wednesday's practice, HC Sean McVay said. That's an upgrade over last week, when Gurley didn't practice at all. He has a legitimate shot to return for Sunday's game against the Falcons. RB Malcolm Brown, meanwhile, is "day to day" with an ankle injury, per McVay. We'll get another update on both guys tomorrow.

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.
