The Bears are ranked fourth against fantasy running backs, but Gurley is too good to be outside the top-tier of fantasy running backs.

Relax, Gurley scored after giving himself up short of the end zone for the second time this season. He has found the end zone in 11 of 12 games for 19 total touchdowns, so a date with Chicago's second-best rushing defense is no reason to panic. He still salvaged 79 yards and a touchdown when facing the only better run-stopping unit (Saints) earlier this season, so the floor is too high to fret a lowered ceiling. Besides, the Bears allowed two touchdowns to LeGarrette Blount on Thanksgiving and 146 yards to Saquon Barkley in Week 13. The matchup only serves as motivation to not pay his steep DFS ransom, but Sunday night's game is off the main slate anyway.

Gurley has such a commanding lead in red-zone touches that it's almost unfair to have him in a fantasy lineup. It's like having a second QB. So far, every indication is that Gurley is destined to repeat as the overall No. 1 fantasy player and the Rams offense just keeps humming along each and every week. True to form, Gurley scored another pair of touchdowns after the bye. As long as the Rams don't wrap up the No. 1 seed, Gurley is the top fantasy option each and every week.

No. 1 RB in FAN PPG has 5 multi-TD games and has highest half-PPR FAN PPG mark (25.0) at RB since L. Tomlinson in '06 - (Week 14-16 schedule = @CHI, PHI, @ARI)
