Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
 Please don't start Frank Gore unless you have no other options. San Francisco's defense did a good job limiting the Cardinals' running backs to just 86 yards (3.9 YPC), and the timeless bruiser already struggles enough with efficiency. Gore is a touchdown-dependent option at running back, and he's not worth considering at flex unless you play in a standard-scoring league.
Jacob Wayne
Lineups
It was a tale of two halves for Todd Gurley as he had 10 carries for 51 yards and a touchdown in the first half but just 4 carries for 3 yards in the second half. Gurley isn't the same player he used to be, but he can still be very effective - as long as the Falcons are competing. As soon as Atlanta falls behind by a significant margin, they pass the ball more than any other team. Against the Cowboys, I expect a similar game script to Week 1 and one that could marginalize Gurley for some of the game. He's still a solid RB2 this week thanks to his clear status as the starter and his red zone opportunities, but his upside is capped with how often the Falcons throw the ball. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Gurley's fantasy opportunity was never in question in Atlanta, but it always came down to his long-term health. Will Gurley make it the entire season? We have no way of knowing that right now, but as long as he's healthy, he's going to be a weekly low-end RB1 in this offense.Le'Veon Bell's absence has vaulted Gore into the starting role for a NFL team yet again. However, this offense is barely going to put points up on the board and the 49ers have one of the most stout run defenses in the entire league. Gore shouldn't be considered as anything more than a desperation FLEX start.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
As expected, the Falcons gave Gurley the workhorse role, as he totaled 19 opportunities while Brian Hill and Ito Smith combined for just nine of them. He also totaled all three of their goal-line carries in Week 1. Playing for a high-scoring offense, that's a great thing. The Cowboys are still learning new defensive coordinator Mike Nolan's scheme, so there'll be some bumps along the way. While with the Rams last year, Gurley struggled to get much going against them, as he rushed for just 20 yards on 11 carries, but he scored twice netting 18.8 PPR points. However, the Cowboys defense struggled to slow down Malcolm Brown last week as he rumbled for 79 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries. The loss of Leighton Vander Esch mid-game surely wasn't ideal for them, but they also lost strong safety Jeff Heath, interior lineman Maliek Collins, and edge defender Robert Quinn this offseason. We'll continue to gather information on the Cowboys unit under Nolan, but knowing the uncertainty, combined with Gurley's opportunity in this offense, you should continue starting him as a sturdy RB2 with some touchdown upside. If you want to pivot off Matt Ryan in tournaments, Gurley has multi-touchdown upside.Depending on how you expect the game to go, that'll determine which running back gets more time on the field. Gore is sure to be the starter with Le'Veon Bell out, though it was Adams who played more snaps in the second half when the Jets fell behind. He played on 10 pass snaps while Gore played just four such snaps. Oddsmakers clearly think this will be a one-sided game, and not one in the Jets favor. The 49ers defense isn't one you need to attack with running backs, though, as they allowed just seven running backs all of last year to finish better than the RB24 against them. A large part of that is due to the miniscule 400 yards they allowed through the air to running backs last year (that's just 25.0 yards per game), which was the second fewest in the league. On top of that, they were one of just two teams who didn't allow a receiving touchdown to running backs last year. This game figures to be a lot like last week in terms of gamescript where the Jets running backs totaled just 18 touches. We have Gore who will start and likely receive goal-line touches (though Adams got the only one last week, which came in garbage time), while Adams will be used on passing downs. Both of them should be considered low-upside RB4s.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Gurley was not on the field for over 1/2 of the Falcons plays, due to them falling behind early in the game. He did score a touchdown and he did see 14 rushing attempts, but the Falcons will be behind a lot this year. Gurley is a dicey RB2 against a Dallas team that was torched by the Rams running game last week.
