Atlanta Falcons RB Todd Gurley (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 25, but is not on the injury report for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Gurley has received at least 14 carries in both of the first two games of the season but only has 117 yards combined in the games. He will continue to be the focal point in the running game but should only be a No. 2 running back or flex option in leagues.

Atlanta Falcons RB Todd Gurley (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 18, but is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Gurley was able to reach the end zone in the opener but posted only 57 total yards during the game. He should receive a similar workload this week and can still be a No. 2 running back or flex option in leagues.

Atlanta Falcons RB Todd Gurley was impressive during the scrimmage Friday, Aug. 28, according to head coach Dan Quinn. 'The speed was the thing,' Quinn said. 'He out-ran the leverage on one play. On another one, he got to the edge and made a big play. I felt his speed for certain.'
Huddle Up: The reports coming out of camp on Gurley continue to be positive, and while his knee remains a concern, he is set up for success as the lead back in a potent Atlanta offense. If he stays on the field all season, RB2 numbers seem like his floor.

Atlanta Falcons RB Todd Gurley is expected to see a minimum of 15 touches per game, according to offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter.
'I think a minimum of 15 touches and a high of (25). But you've got to realize we've got a lot of guys that need touches. You're going to have 64 plays in a game on average on offense. Depending on where you're at in the season and wear and tear, I think the low is 15 and maybe the high end 25,' Koetter told ESPN in a phone interview Tuesday, Aug. 25.
Huddle Up: This is pretty much a standard line for any offensive coordinator talking about his starting running back, especially one as accomplished as Gurley. To their credit, the Falcons have put Gurley on a load management plan during camp in hopes of keeping him fresh for as long as possible. The 26-year-old should be a solid pick in the fourth round of fantasy drafts - one capable of consistently posting solid RB2 numbers with low-end RB1 upside.

Atlanta Falcons RB Todd Gurley (knee) will be limited in practice Saturday, Aug. 22, as part of workload management plan head coach Dan Quinn said. Gurley is expected to return to more work Sunday.
Huddle Up: Gurley is only 26 but likely is never going to be the RB1 workhorse he was only a few years ago. However, he's still expected to be the Falcons' main back this season and is a solid RB2 consideration in drafts.

Atlanta Falcons RB Todd Gurley (knee) looked 'springy' when carrying the ball during practice Wednesday, Aug. 19, according to Will McFadden of AtlantaFalcons.com.
Huddle Up: While Gurley's knee issues have likely ended his days as a RB1, he is expected to lead the backfield in 2020 and should be able to deliver RB2 production in Atlanta's potent offense.

Atlanta Falcons RB Todd Gurley (knee) may be limited during practice at the start of training camp since he has dealt with a knee injury.
Huddle Up: Gurley should be fine for the start of the regular season and likely will receive most of the work in the running game. He was one of the top running back a few years ago and can still be at least a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues this season.

Atlanta Falcons RB Todd Gurley can be argued to be 'the best back in the game,' according to offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter Tuesday, June 9.
Huddle Up: Gurley has played at least 14 games in each of the past four seasons, but he can't shake questions about his arthritic knee. His efficiency plummeted in 2019, as he ran for 857 yards on 223 attempts and caught 31 of 49 targets for 207 yards. He was able to total 14 touchdowns, but he'll need to break longer runs to help the Falcons improve one of the league's worst rushing attacks from 2019. He's a risky mid-tier RB2 pick.

Atlanta Falcons RB Todd Gurley flew to Atlanta and passed his physical Monday, June 8.
Huddle Up: Gurley's knee issues are well documented, and the risks are severe. He's expected to see the lion's share of work, and he'll be an RB2 in fantasy.

Atlanta Falcons RB Todd Gurley is going to be an 'awesome fit' for the offense, QB Matt Ryan said after working out with the running back.
Huddle Up: A healthy Gurley would be a great fit for any offense, but the status of his surgically repaired left knee continues to be the concern. He will be a high-risk, high-reward RB2 heading into the 2020 season.
