2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
It's been a strange career for Gurley. He entered the league with a lot of hype and showed up immediately, rushing for 1,106 yards and 10 touchdowns as a rookie. Then he had a terrible second season, albeit under Jeff Fisher. Then he had two fantastic seasons under Sean McVay, scoring 19 and then 21 touchdowns. He was the most sought-after fantasy football player during that stretch.

But the whispers started about his troublesome knee during the end of that 2018 season, when he was used sparingly in favor of C.J. Anderson (who had just been signed off the street). Then entering 2019, the Rams drafted Darrell Henderson and many thought that the two would split carries evenly. However, Henderson could not get on the field and Gurley remained the workhorse back, logging 223 carries.

But he was not nearly as effective, averaging only 3.8 yards per carry (after 4.7 and 4.9 in 2017 & 2018). His usage in the passing game also plummeted, as he went from 87 & 81 targets in the two previous seasons to 49 targets in 2019. Whether Gurley's decreased effectiveness had more to do with the offense as a whole regressing or with Gurley himself losing some of his burst is difficult to ascertain. He certainly appeared a step slower, but that can be hard to judge outside of a team context, and it is true that his offensive line was much worse in 2019.

The Falcons are betting on a return to his 2018 form. They have a better offensive line, as well as a more accomplished quarterback and receiver group. This should keep defenses from being able to stack the box against Gurley, and the line should give him more room to work. It will become evident quickly if his knee is hampering him or not, as he has an excellent opportunity in this offense to produce in a big way. In only 14 games last season, Devonta Freeman received 70 targets, and if those all get passed to Gurley that would help him return to being one of the top backs in the league, particularly in PPR fantasy scoring.

In the end, Gurley is a boom-bust option, as his 2020 season will depend so heavily on his health. The Falcons are likely to give him plenty of work and not worry too much about the future, since Gurley is on a one-year deal. If there is a time for him to prove he is still an elite back, this is going to be it.

Injury Todd Gurley out, Julio Jones questionable for Week 12
Knee injury for Gurley
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 27, 4:01 pm

Atlanta Falcons
#Falcons RB Todd Gurley (knee) is out for Sunday against the #Raiders. WR Julio Jones (hamstring) is questionable. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Gurley out, expect Brian Hill and Ito Smith to handle running back duties for the Falcons against the Raiders. Hill is probably more of a Flex option with higher upside if Julio is active and can make it through the game.
