From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): For the first time since his rookie year, Gurley's incredible natural talent was apparent against Washington. He hurdled tacklers and showed athletic ability that is unfair in a back his size. The Rams offense appears to be at least functional, and Gurley is back to being an RB1 going into a Thursday game against the 49ers.

Week 3: at San Francisco 49ers

All RB vs SF

FBG says: Good matchup. The Rams rushing offense was a one-man show last week as Todd Gurley rushed 16 times for 88 yards and a touchdown. This average of 5.5 yards per carry was a nice bounce back from averaging only 2.2 yards per carry in Week 1. Speaking of bounce backs, this rushing yardage tops Gurley's best rushing performance from the entire 2016 season (85 yards in Week 3). Jared Goff struggled last week compared to his Week 1 explosion, but the Rams found success in Gurley as they kept the game close. The Rams offensive line has shown some improvement after last season, with left tackle Andrew Whitworth Gurley will draw a favorable matchup this week against the 49ers rushing defense that has only shown minimal improvement over their historically bad 2016 season. The 49ers allowed Seattle's Chris Carson to average 4.7 yards per carry for 93 rushing yards in Week 2 after allowing the Panthers to rush for 116 yards in Week 1. Right tackle Deforest Buckner has proven to be their most effective run-stopper, but the left side of the Rams offensive line has been their better side this season. The 49ers have had poor play from their outside linebackers this season also, which does not bode well for them when Gurley decides to bounce a run to the outside. The Rams offensive line has not played well, but they did create openings for Todd Gurley last week and have shown some reasonable improvement from last season.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs WAS (16 / 88 / 1 rush, 4 / 3 / 48 / 1 rec)

This was the best that Todd Gurley has looked since 2015, as the running back continues to be a threat out of the back field as he was able to catch three passes including a 28 yard reception where he hurdled the defender on route to his first career receiving touchdown. Gurley continues to shine when out in space and his offensive line created more holes in this game than we have seen over the last year or so. Gurley was able to find the end-zone twice in this game once on a one-yard run and another on a swing pass in which he hurdled a defender and dove into the end-zone for a touchdown. The one criticism of Gurley is that he continues to have issues fumbling the football as he fumbled twice in this game which he now has three fumbles on the season.

2017 Week 1 vs IND (19 / 40 / 1 rush, 6 / 5 / 56 / 0 rec)

Todd Gurley looked the same as he did in 2016 which is disappointing as we had hoped that we would see some improvement since his disappointing year last year after not seeing much from him in the preseason. The issue continues to be that he has too many runs where he does not get any yardage as 9 of his 22 carries went for one yard or less. Gurley was able to find the end zone on a goal line shotgun carry where he was stopped at the one but a second effort found the end zone. The bright spot for Gurley is that he was productive in the passing game which made up for the lack of productivity in the rushing game. Gurley highlight was a play-action dump off pass that he was able to find open space to turn it into a 23 yard gain.

Our View: Gurley could have easily had four or even five scores in the track meet. He'll be well-rested for a game against the suspect Cowboys defense in Week 4. Consider Gurley a strong if not elite RB1 with the improved quality of offense around him.
