Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
The struggles for Gurley continue, as he is running behind a poor, beat up offensive line. On top of that, he individually looks like a shell of himself. A matchup against the Chicago Bears front seven is not likely to turn things around for the Rams RB, making him a low end RB2 this week. 
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
 Ekeler has clearly ceded a lot of the running work since Melvin Gordon returned, but he's still involved enough to be a decent option as an RB2 or a strong FLEX. If Monday night's matchup against the Chiefs evolves into a shootout, Ekeler should be a strong play again due to his excellent pass catching ability.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Here's a fun fact: Gurley has yet to top 20 opportunities in a game this season. That's carries and targets combined. Based on how often he's touched the ball, Gurley should only be expected to be a low-end RB2 this season. Many hold him to a higher regard, but he's performing almost exactly how he's supposed to, especially when you consider this horrendous offensive line. The craziest part of it all is that he has just one reception over his last three games combined. That shouldn't be happening. The Bears have been a matchup to target with running backs since losing defensive tackle Akiem Hicks, as they've now allowed 503 yards on 127 carries (3.96 yards per carry) with seven rushing touchdowns in five games without him. The Bears run defense had allowed five rushing touchdowns in the previous 21 games. Opponents have racked-up 29.9 running back touches per game against the Bears, which bodes well for this timeshare, as the Rams running backs have combined to average just 22.4 touches per game with Gurley netting just under 60 percent of them. Coming off a game where he hit a season-high 6.1 yards per attempt against the Steelers, Gurley should get 15-18 touches in this game and be considered a high-end RB2. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Bears are 24th against fantasy running backs, Gurley should be a RB2 at home this week.The Chiefs are 31st against fantasy backs, Ekeler should be a RB2 as the receiving threat in the Chargers backfield.
