Andrew Gould

Gurley has reached the end zone at least once (19 TDs) in his last nine games. He's averaging 145 yards per game this season. The 49ers have allowed five rushing touchdowns in the past four contests, and the Rams are double-digit favorites on the road. Find a way to budget him into DFS cash lineups.McCaffrey suffered his worst performance (20 rushing, 46 receiving yards) in Week 6, but he still played every snap and stockpiled seven receptions. There's no need to panic, but the Eagles rank second in rushing defense despite faltering to Saquon Barkley. The Carolina running back might need to make more happen as a pass-catcher, but high usage preserves his spot near the bottom of Week 7's top-10 running backs.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The 49ers are just 22nd against fantasy running backs, Gurley should be the top fantasy running back again this week. The Eagles are tied for 27th in receptions allowed to fantasy running backs, but they are 3rd overall against fantasy backs in fantasy points allowed. I expect McCaffrey to be a back-end RB1, thanks to his receiving ability.
