Todd Gurley II ran for 113 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries Thursday in the Los Angeles Rams' 41-39 win over the San Francisco 49ers. He added five receptions for 36 yards and one touchdown.
The Rams have an offense again under new coach Sean McVay, and Gurley is one of the main beneficiaries. The bruising back's six touchdowns through three weeks has already matched his entire 2016 total, and he's racked up 76 touches thus far while taking on a larger role as a receiver. With no threat to his snaps on the roster, he's back to elite status in the fantasy world.
Gurley carried 28 times for 113 yards and two touchdowns while also hauling in five of seven targets for 36 yards and a receiving score in Thursday's 41-39 win over the 49ers. He also fumbled once, but it was recovered.
Gurley's production carried him to what is now the best two-game scoring stretch of his career, as he's crossed the goal line on a total of five occasions over the last two contests. The 2015-first round pick also went over the century mark on the ground for the first time since Week 15 of his rookie campaign, and he scored all three of his touchdowns from inside the 10-yard line in the first half. He put in some impressive work in the fourth quarter as well, ripping off a 29-yard gain off left tackle to kick off the Rams' first possession of the period and turning in an impressive 27-yard catch-and-run on third down later in the drive. Gurley has already matched his touchdown total of six from last season through the first three weeks, and considering he was the only running back to touch the ball Thursday, head coach Sean McVay appears set to give the 23-year-old all the work he can handle. Gurley will look to build on his impressive start in a Week 4 road tilt versus the Cowboys.
Todd Gurley II ran for 88 yards and one touchdown on 16 carries Sunday in the Los Angeles Rams' 27-20 loss to the Washington Redskins. He added three receptions for 48 yards and one touchdown, and fumbled once.
The good news is Gurley's rushing total was more than he had in any game last season, the bad is that he fumbled twice. Still, the 2015 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year has scored three touchdowns through the first two weeks and is getting a wealth of touches as the Rams' obvious feature back. He rates as a top play when Los Angeles heads to San Francisco for the Thursday night game on the Week 3 schedule.
Gurley rushed 16 times for 88 yards and a touchdown and caught three of four passes for 48 yards and a score during Sunday's 27-20 loss to Washington.
Gurley rushed for just 2.1 yards per carry last week, so it was encouraging to see him run for 5.5 yards per tote Sunday. Additionally, it's clear new head coach Sean McVay is eager to utilize Gurley in the passing game, as the back is now up to eight receptions for 104 yards and two touchdowns through two weeks. Gurley projects to remain the focal point of the Rams' offensive attack and should be viewed as a solid starting option in all formats heading into next week's matchup against San Francisco.
Todd Gurley II ran for 40 yards and one touchdown on 19 carries Sunday in the Los Angeles Rams' 46-9 win over the Indianapolis Colts. He added five receptions for 56 yards.
Gurley was effective both as a runner and pass-catcher as just about everything worked for the Rams. After a down year last season, Gurley should be primed for another 1,000-yard rushing season with a new coach and Jared Goff settling into the offense.
