Todd Gurley II ran for 37 yards and one touchdown on 15 carries Sunday in the Los Angeles Rams' 24-7 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He added three receptions for 19 yards.
Gurley never really got it going on the ground or through the air, but he did at least scored a touchdown.
Gurley rushed 15 times for 37 yards and a touchdown while also hauling in three of four targets for 19 yards in Sunday's 24-7 loss to the Vikings.
Gurley saw the abundant running room that he'd benefited from in three of the prior four games largely evaporate Sunday, as the Vikings clearly came in with a focus on slowing down the talented third-year back. The 23-year-old did manage to score his fourth touchdown over the last three games and notch multiple catches for the fourth straight contest. Gurley has actually encountered tough sledding on the ground in two of his last three games, leading to his longest stretch without a 100-yard rushing performance this season. He'll look to get back on track against the Saints in Week 12.
Todd Gurley II ran for 68 yards on 11 carries Sunday in the Los Angeles Rams' 33-7 win over the Houston Texans.
Gurley's 6.2 yards per carry in Week 10 were a season high, but his 11 attempts were a season low. However, he did have six receptions for 68 yards, so he amassed more than 100 scrimmage yards for the fourth straight game.
Gurley gained 68 yards on 11 carries and 68 yards on six receptions (seven targets) in Sunday's 33-7 win over the Texans.
Gurley didn't do much on the ground until early in the fourth quarter when he ripped off a 34-yard gain that briefly looked like it might go for a long touchdown. He did lead the Rams in every major receiving category in the first half, but Robert Woods ended that with a massive third quarter. The Seahawks (in Week 5) are the only team that's managed to shut down Gurley this season, with the third-year back otherwise producing 96 or more scrimmage yards in every game and leading the league with 10 touchdowns. He's locked in as one of the elites at his position, even for a tough Week 11 road game in Minnesota.
Gurley carried 16 times for 59 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's game against the Giants. He also caught a pair of passes for 45 yards in the 51-17 win.
Gurley only mustered 3.7 yards per carry against a solid New York front, but a pair of short touchdown runs in the third quarter salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective. He wasn't overly involved in the passing game, but a 44-yard reception ensured he eclipsed 100 scrimmage yards for the sixth time in eight games this season. The emergence of Jared Goff has had a profound impact on Gurley, whose 10 total touchdowns have already matched a career high. He will look to keep it rolling next week against the Texans.
