Atlanta Falcons RB Todd Gurley (knee) has yet to take or pass his physical, according to general manager Thomas Dimitroff Tuesday, April 7. Dimitroff said he feels good about Gurley's ability to pass the test.
Huddle Up: Gurley received a career-low 223 carries with the Los Angeles Rams last year and his 3.8 yards per attempt was well below his career average. He still topped 1,000 yards from scrimmage and scored 14 total touchdowns, but there is real concern he isn't the game-breaker he was for the first four years of his career. He's a mid-tier RB2 heading toward the 2020 season.

Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Todd Gurley (Rams) officially signed with the Atlanta Falcons Monday, April 6. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Gurley will be the main running back for the Falcons next season and likely will be a weekly starting option in most fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley is expected to be used less than normal early in 2020, and his work will increase as the season goes along, in the opinion of ESPN's Matthew Berry.
Huddle Up: That sounds like what they did in 2019, but we may see even more of Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown. Brown had the two-TD Week 1 but did little afterwards. Henderson is probably the main handcuff and possible RB4 to target. It remains to be seen if Gurley will stay at the absorbent salary he is at. What is pretty clear, though, is he's not going to be an RB1 target this season. Look for him as a mid-to-late RB2.

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley is scheduled to meet with the team in the near future to talk about his season and his situation moving forward.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need keep an eye on the situation to see where Gurley will play in 2020. He rushed for 857 yards and 12 touchdowns this past season and can continue to be a starting running back for a team. Gurley likely will be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues next season.

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley could potentially end up on the trading block this offseason as the team looks for way to create room under the salary cap, in the opinion of ESPN's Lindsey Thiry.
Huddle Up: It's important to note Thiry is doing nothing more than making a bold prediction here, as trading Gurley will be extremely difficult since he carries a cap number of $17.25 million and dealing with an arthritic knee that just about any casual NFL observer knows about. At the moment, the odds are extremely high that Gurley will serve as the Rams' featured back for the foreseeable future, with the team managing his workload early in the season in much the same way it did in 2019.

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 27, but is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Gurley has rushed for six touchdowns in the last six games but has been held to 68 yards in the last two games. He should have a favorable matchup this week and can be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed 15 times for 48 yards and two touchdowns and failed to catch either of his targets in a 34-31 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Gurley continues to struggle with efficiency, but he has scored in four straight games and is up to 14 touchdowns on the year. While he may not be living up to his draft position, he remains a useful fantasy asset.

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley (non-injury) didn't practice Thursday, Dec. 19, but he doesn't have an injury designation for the game Saturday, Dec. 21, against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Gurley has reached the end zone in three straight games, doing so twice in Week 15, but he totaled just 38 yards last week. He's a mid-tier RB2 against the Niners.

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley carried the ball 11 times for 20 yards and a touchdown in a Week 15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He also had three catches for 18 yards and a score.
Huddle Up: Gurley's 14 touches covered all of 38 yards, but he scored twice keep his fantasy output respectable. The Rams will need to win their final two and get help to make the playoffs, and first up is a road game against the 49ers, who demolished LA earlier this year in a game that Gurley did not play. He's an RB2 for that one, but the downside is significant.
