Todd Gurley II
RB - FA
Former Rams and Falcons RB Todd Gurley II is now visiting the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday.
Gurley visited with the Detroit Lions just two weeks ago but nothing has since materialized on that front. With Mark Ingram now in Houston, maybe the Ravens are interested in replacing his veteran leadership with another proven vet in Gurley. If he ultimately signs, he’d likely get a few carries here and there, but ultimately shouldn’t eat too much into the workloads of both J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards, who both seem to already have established roles in the offense.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that free agent RB Todd Gurley is in Detroit to visit with the Lions on Thursday.
Schefter notes that if Gurley signs with the Lions he'll be reunited with Jared Goff. He would also be teaming up with a fellow Georgia RB standout, D'Andre Swift. Fantasy players likely aren't pleased to hear that another running back could be joining this group, as there were already concerns over how much Jamaal Williams would eat into Swift's workload. We'll see if Gurley actually signs, though.
Todd Gurley II, who played through 2020 in Atlanta on a one-year deal, is not expected to be brought back in for the 2021 season according to Tori McElhaney with The Athletic.
Although this isn't official news, it is expected as Gurley's production and usage dwindled throughout the 2020 season. After tweaking his knee about midway through the season, Gurley saw just six carries for 15.7 yards per game over the Falcons' final six games. There's a chance that another team takes a shot on Gurley heading into next season. Realistically though, the days of being a featured back appear to be in the rearview mirror for the 26-year-old former 10th overall pick. Currently RB41 according to our Expert Consensus Rankings, Gurley probably won't offer much as a fantasy asset heading into his seventh season.
Falcons RB Todd Gurley II rushed nine times for 18 yards and caught his lone target for a 17-yard gain in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Buccaneers.
Gurley was never himself this season. While he salvaged his first half with touchdowns, his second half of 2020 was one to forget. He may not be on this roster in 2021.
Falcons RB Todd Gurley rushed four times for 16 yards while hauling in all three targets for 34 yards in Sunday's Week 16 loss to Kansas City.
Gurley totaled 50 yards in Week 16 on seven touches. Sadly, it was one of his more efficient games of the year. Gurley gets a tough matchup with the Bucs in Week 17.
