Summary

Todd Gurley found one of the few wide-open starting running back jobs in the NFL with his signing in Atlanta this offseason. Gurley rebounded from his confounding end to the 2018 season and the Rams' Super Bowl run with only one missed game and more than 250 touches. The Rams offense was a limiting factor with a struggling offensive line and a passing game losing efficiency. Gurley's passing game involvement fell off a cliff as well with his targets nearly cut in half from his elite 2017-2018 seasonal peaks. With Atlanta, their offensive line was mediocre at best last season but partly to blame was a collection of running backs struggling to create on their own. A huge potential boost for Gurley is usage in the passing game. Atlanta running backs saw nearly double the targets as the Rams backfield in 2019 with lead back Devonta Freeman at a robust 71. With a strong contract - albeit a one-year test drive - Gurley is in a prime position to rebound from his barely 1,000-total-yard campaign a year ago. (April 28)

Falcons | Todd Gurley goes nowhere fast (Sun Nov 22, 06:33 PM) - Atlanta Falcons RB Todd Gurley rushed eight times for 26 yards in Week 11 against the New Orleans Saints and he added just one grab for three yards on two targets.

Our View: The Saints run defense is a tough draw as it is, and when you add in the loss of Julio Jones, it was clear Gurley was going nowhere. He's not a clear RB2 start against Las Vegas next week unless Jones can play.
