Summary

Todd Gurley's electric two-year run of production between 2017 and 2018 is clouded by his quizzical end to the regular season and lack of usage in the postseason as the Rams ultimately lost in the Super Bowl. Gurley amassed 40 total touchdowns over the two seasons and averaged more than 125 yards-per-game as the centerpiece to arguably the most dynamic offense in the NFL. While putting up eye-popping two-way production, including more than 1,300 receiving yards, Gurley's workload was not at historically high levels at 22-23 per game. Gurley's knee injury was managed late in the year but still limited his usage in the Super Bowl despite logging the fastest measure speed of any player in the pinnacle game. Gurley's single concern is how his knee may or may not affect him in 2019. C.J. Anderson, Gurley's notable replacement, left in free agency, leaving returning Malcolm Brown (also from injury) and third-round rookie Darrell Henderson to jockey for the all-important primary backup role throughout the season.

Rams | Todd Gurley unlikely to go to Hawaii (Tue Aug 13, 09:33 PM) - Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) is not expected to travel with the team as it heads to Hawaii to play the Dallas Cowboys in exhibition game Saturday, Aug. 17.'That's something that I would say, more likely than not, but we're still working through the specifics of that as we kind of get closer and closer to that. I don't have the full answer, but more likely than not, he will not go,' head coach Sean McVay said.

Our View: No surprise here. We won't any of Gurley in the preseason as he's on McVay's 'veteran plan' for training camp. The Rams want to keep him fresh for the start of the regular season.
