Expert 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Todd Gurley has had two phenomenal matchups to start his season and he gets the trifecta here. The Colts, Redskins, and 49ers were all in the bottom-six versus fantasy running backs last year and the 49ers will be without first-round pick Rueben Foster for this game, as well as starting strong safety Eric Reid. Through two weeks, the Panthers and Seahawks running backs combined for 68 touches against the 49ers, meaning Gurley should get as many touches as possible once again.  
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Gurley went from a guy who looked like he'd simply be the beneficiary of a ton of volume in Week 1 against the Colts to a decisive and confident runner in Week 2 against the Redskins, during which he averaged 5.5 yards per carry and scored both a rushing and receiving touchdown. He'll now get a 49ers team that was historically awful against running backs last season and will be playing without Reuben Foster. Running backs against the 49ers are averaging a whopping 44 touches per game, and while Gurley won't approach that mark, he should see an incredibly high volume of work once again. He's a good bet for another touchdown and upward of 25 touches, making him a solid RB1. 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
This 49ers had a historically bad run defense last season, and while Bowman is back, they are still among the worst in the league. Gurley has looked significantly better behind Andrew Whitworth and in McVay's offense to use him as a clear RB1 this week. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The 49ers are just 18th against fantasy running backs this year, Gurley should have RB1 appeal in this game. 
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Gurley played better last week than I've seen him play in a long while. As long as he's getting good usage like he has been, I expect his floor is much higher than it has been in over a year.
