Todd Gurley earned 40 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries while contributing five catches for 56 yards on six targets Sunday in the Rams’ Week 1 win over the Colts.
It ended up being a good fantasy week for Gurley, but that had more to do with volume than anything. Even with favorable game script in a blowout, Gurley remained shockingly inefficient, particularly in the second half when he managed just one yard on eight carries. He did show well in the passing game, however, and salvaged his day with a five-yard touchdown dash in the second quarter. He’ll remain a volume-dependent RB2 against the Redskins in Week 2.
