|Todd Gurley's Fantasy Scouting Report|
SCOUT ANALYST TAKE
CBS Fantasy experts have Todd Gurley rated as the #13 RB heading into 2019. The latest projection has him slightly better than this. Obviously his health is everything. But even if he is 'healthy' you can be assured that the Ram will not give him nearly the workload of past seasons. Our projection is based on him getting just a shade over 200 touches as he splits time with Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown in the backfield.
DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK
Draft Todd Gurley as a weekly fantasy starter in 2019. His 190 projected fantasy points puts him at #9 behind Joe Mixon and ahead of Kerryon Johnson. He has averaged 22.36 fantasy points in his past 14 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 11.8 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#10) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #13 ranked running back. He is slightly underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 98%, he is the #10 most highly owned running back. Todd Gurley is expected to come up short of last season's #1 fantasy position rank.
