Andrew Gould

Everyone is entitled to a stinker. Gurley's just happened to come at a highly inopportune time for investors who didn't ride the top pick to a Week 14 playoff bye. And to be fair, 58 yards against an elite adversary isn't too terrible for someone's nadir. Those who survived the hiccup are obviously standing by the stud, who now faces an Eagles defense that has allowed 4.9 yards per carry. Five consecutive opposing backs have generated a top-10 output against the sinking defending champions, and the Rams should have little difficulty establishing a lead if Carson Wentz (back) sits on Sunday night. Look for Gurley to extend that streak to six.Kamara has totaled 257 yards and no touchdowns in the last three middling games. He'll look to awaken from this funk against the Panthers, who have permitted the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game (15.7) to opposing running backs. Perhaps he'd fall closer to the bottom of Week 15's top 10 if the position wasn't inflicted with so many notable losses. He has gathered eight of his NFL-high 61 red-zone touches during his mini-slump, so there's too much week-winning upside to worry outside of DFS cash contests.

The Eagles have been a disaster against fantasy running backs over the last 5 weeks, Gurley should rebound from a horrible game in Chicago at home in a favorable matchup. Carolina is 6th against fantasy running backs, but Kamara is a matchup proof RB1 at home.
