To Knee or Not to Knee
Todd Gurley has been the best fantasy running back over the last two seasons. Based purely on what he’s done under Sean McVay’s watch, Gurley would be in the running for the 1st overall pick alongside Saquon Barkley. Instead, Gurley is falling into the mid- to late-2nd round (or later) in drafts as fears over his knee have skyrocketed.
While Gurley’s knee is a risk factor, his ADP more than effectively discounts that risk. Even if he’s used more judiciously – aka, put on a snap count per se – he can still easily produce top-10 fantasy value. Don’t let bitterness over his Week 16 inactive and a few not-so-carefully chosen words by his trainer throw you off the scent. Gurley in the 2nd round or later is one of the best ways to help secure a 2019 fantasy championship.
