Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After Gurley totaled 19 of the Falcons 28 opportunities in Week 1 (67.9 percent), he totaled 21 of 34 opportunities in Week 2 (61.8 percent). Those are decent shares, but there is a warning sign above him. He caught just 1-of-5 targets in Week 1 and then saw zero targets in Week 2. If all he's getting is early-down work, he's going to be a touchdown-or-bust player. Targets are worth 2.5x what a carry is worth, so we don't care so much about his 21 carries that went for a measly 61 yards. Fortunately, he plays for a high-powered offense that should be in scoring position often. This week may not be one of those high-scoring weeks, though. The Bears aren't a cake matchup, especially with Akiem Hicks on the field. You can go back to last year and see they allowed 4.12 yards per carry without him, but just 2.92 yards per carry with him. The Falcons are projected for 25.0 points, which bodes well for Gurley considering the Bears have not allowed a quarterback more than two passing touchdowns since back in Week 7 of 2018. Gurley has received all five of the red zone carries for the Falcons this year. He's a touchdown dependent RB2 but one who has a better shot than most to get one this week. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Gurley looked great in week one and it appeared that you had a locked-and-loaded RB1 as long as he was on the field and healthy. However, last week, Gurley did next to nothing with his incredible opportunity. Gurley saw 21 carries, but was only able to convert those to 61 yards on the ground. Meanwhile, he wasn't targeted at all in a game where the Falcons threw the ball 36 times. Gurley is now moving into a category where he needs to find the end zone in order for you to feel happy that you plugged him into your lineup. He's now a touchdown-dependent RB2 moving forward. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The good news is Gurley saw 21 carries last week, the bad news is he gained only 61 yards. If he can maintain 20 carries per game, that may catapult him to RB2 status, but the Bears are 13th against fantasy running backs this year. Gurley is not going to keep seeing 21 carries if he cannot improve on 2.90 yards per rush.
