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.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Todd Gurley to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 189 projected fantasy points puts him at #10 behind David Johnson and ahead of Leonard Fournette. 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 (#11) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #12 ranked running back. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite running back. He is not projected for elite value. Todd Gurley is expected to come up short of last season's #1 fantasy position rank.

TODD GURLEY WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Todd Gurley is projected for 12.6 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #11 ranked running back and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a slightly better than average week with more fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above James Conner but behind David Johnson. Week 2 will be slightly worse based on projected rank (#12). He is projected for 11 fantasy points.

TODD GURLEY IS A BETTER VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $7.6K THAN ON DRAFTKINGS AT $7.9K

He is a better value on FanDuel than on DraftKings based on position specific points per dollar calculations. He is projected for 13.7 FD points and is worth +$592 more than $7.6K on FD. On DK he is projected for 15.6 points and is worth -$1046 less than $7.9K. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
