Latest NewsFalcons | Another TD for Todd Gurley (Fri Oct 30, 12:22 AM) - Atlanta Falcons RB Todd Gurley carried the ball 18 times for 46 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the Carolina Panthers. Our View: Gurley's touchdown was welcomed this week, although he was outplayed by Brian Hill and left on the sidelines for long stretches. He'll be a high floor RB2 against Denver next week, but this situation could change as the season slips away from the Falcons.

Our View: Gurley might not quite be the player he used to be but his usage is keeping his fantasy value high. Right now (standard-scoring) Gurley is the no.6 running back in fantasy leagues. That falls just a bit to the no.8 position in PPR leagues. Either way, Gurley is a RB1 for Fantasy GMs out there.

Our View: Gurley's second touchdown was costly as the Falcons lost a chance to run out the clock and try a game-winning chipshot. It was a good fantasy result for Gurley and he has earned trust in lineups heading into a good matchup at Carolina on Thursday.
