Shark Bites

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.

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.
