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.It's possible Barkley goes bonkers for 300 yards and everyone is talking about how the Giants should have drafted a quarterback following another loss. The rookie has accrued has at least 100 scrimmage yards in every game with a touchdown in all but one. The Falcons have allowed 5.1 yards per run and an NFL-high 53 receptions to running backs. Peyton Barber was Week 6's RB10 against them. Barkley would be this week's undisputed No. 1 skill-position player if Todd Gurley had a bye.
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 Falcons are 27th against fantasy running backs, Check Down Barkley should have a big game on the ground and through the air.
