Atlanta Falcons OC Dirk Koetter told the media in a press conference that he believes newly-acquired RB Todd Gurley “can do everything. The main question is - and no one seems to know - what’s his health status?” (Field Yates on Twitter)
This is eye opening to say the least. Gurley has yet to take a physical for the Falcons and now his offensive coordinator is saying that nobody knows about the status of his health. Koetter did go on to say that, “he can do everything. He’s an excellent runner, he’s good in the pass game, he can protect.” There’s no doubt the 25-year old back can be a three-down workhorse for Atlanta, but only if he’s fully healthy. Gurley is ranked #15 in FantasyPros consensus RB rankings, but could easily crack the top-10 with a clean bill of health in a high-powered offense across 16 games in 2020.
