Gurley is averaging just 3.1 yards per tote and is on pace to fall short of 1,000 yards this season. He has also yet to run for 100 yards or more in a game and is widely considered the biggest fantasy football bust in 2016.
Gurley doesn’t need this kind of distraction, as it’s most important he focus on the task at hand. The Georgia product has always proven to be a focused player, so it’s doubtful any of this is a cause for concern.
Besides, his problems have little to do with himself and a lot more to do with the team around him. Gurley has the talent to get better and return to his rookie form, it’s just taking a little longer than people expected.
