The Panthers are 29th against fantasy backs, Gurley is an elite RB1 this week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Don't look now but Gurley is tied with Derrick Henry and Dalvin Cook for most rushing touchdowns (7) in the NFL. He's topped 80 yards on the ground just one time all season and he's not heavily involved in the passing game, so he is somewhat touchdown-dependent, but you'll take it when he's scoring in 71.4 percent of his games. I shouldn't minimalize his increased role in the passing game, either, as he has seen 12 targets over the last three games. Remember how I just said he's topped 80 yards on the ground just once this year? Well, that game was against the Panthers when he racked up 121 yards and a touchdown on just 14 carries. As crazy as this might sound, running backs have outscored quarterbacks by 16.52 points per game against the Panthers. They've done it both on the ground and through the air, as the 102.1 PPR points they've allowed through the air to running backs is second to only the Falcons. All in all, the Panthers have faced the most weighted volume to running backs through seven weeks, and Gurley has totaled 65.4 percent of all the Falcons running back opportunities, so he needs to be in lineups as a low-end RB1 this week.
