  • Todd Gurley II An RB2 For Week 2

    Atlanta Falcons running back Todd Gurley II is a solid RB2 for the Week 2 matchup against the Cowboys. The 26-year-old took on the workhorse role for the team in Week 1, as expected, and got 56 rushing yards and a score on 14 carries. The second-most carries belonged to Brian Hill, but that was only three. This is good news for the former Ram, as he will be able to take on the bulk of carries for Atlanta each week. Dallas just allowed a decent game to the Rams running backs, fueling Gurley's value for this week.

  • Todd Gurley II Finds The End Zone In Week 1

    Atlanta Falcons running back Todd Gurley II carried the ball 14 times for 56 rushing yards with a touchdown in a 38-25 loss to the Seahawks. Gurley II didn't get much work in the passing game and managed an average 4.0 yards per carry. Still, head coach Dan Quinn indicated that game script shifted the team's focus away from the run more than he would have liked, which robbed the star back from any further production. It is also likely that Quinn didn't want to run Gurley II out there for 20-plus carries in Week 1, especially with his health concerns. The 25-year-old will look to get more of a bigger workload against Dallas in Week 2.

  • Todd Gurley II A Good Bet To Find The End Zone In Week 1

    Atlanta Falcons running back Todd Gurley II will face a familiar foe in his Week 1 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. There were some question marks regarding Gurley II's health, though he alleviated some of those concerns with a strong training camp. The matchup against Seattle isn't the greatest, but the 26-year-old has enjoyed success against their defense in the past. In his last five games against the Seahawks, Gurley II has exceeded 50 rushing yards and scored at least one touchdown. In a potentially high-scoring game, Gurley II is a good bet to find the end zone at least once. Slot him into your lineup as an RB2 this week.

  • Todd Gurley II Shines In Scrimmage

    Atlanta Falcons running back Todd Gurley II looked great in the team's final training camp scrimmage on Thursday. Gurley II has put together a couple really nice scrimmages for Atlanta in training camp and has earned the praise of his teammates, most recently, fullback Keith Smith and tackle Jake Matthews. The 26-year-old appears to be fully healthy and is slated for a minimum of 15 touches per week in a Falcons offense that could be in a lot of fantasy-friendly matchups in 2020. Expecting top-flight RB1 numbers is probably unrealistic, though fantasy managers can feel pretty good selecting Gurley II as their RB2 at his current ADP of 28. It wouldn't be a bad idea for managers to invest some draft capital in backup Brian Hill, who is looking like a great insurance policy if something were to happen to Gurley II.
