Gurley has been holding up this season and he has RB1 upside against the Lions 27th ranked fantasy running back defense. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Was it a coincidence that the first game without Dan Quinn netted the most weighted opportunity for Gurley? He racked up 20 carries and four targets against the Vikings, and though they didn't amount to a massive fantasy performance, it's encouraging for his role moving forward. The Lions have allowed the sixth-most fantasy points per game to running backs through five games. They've allowed a massive 5.25 yards per carry on the season, though Aaron Jones did account for a lot of that back in Week 2 when he racked up 168 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries. He was one of the four top-10 performances the Lions have allowed to running backs, as both Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray finished there in Week 4, and then James Robinson last week. They did limit Robinson to just 29 yards on 12 carries last week, but he did chip in with four receptions for 24 yards and a touchdown, salvaging his fantasy day. He was the first starting running back who totaled fewer than 64 yards on the ground, and that includes David Montgomery. The Falcons have a 29.5-point team-implied total as home favorites, which bodes well for Gurley's scoring opportunities. He should be in lineups as a high-end RB2 this week.
