Rams coach Sean McVay said he is 'expecting big things' from Todd Gurley. Gurley reportedly put on a show during a joint practice with the Chargers on Saturday. "He did a great job of getting it out into the open field," McVay said. "He's a guy that has been motivated and has been a standout throughout the offseason program, and it's been the same throughout camp." It was a non-tackling practice, so the praise should be taken with a grain of salt. Still, McVay has been nothing but positive about Gurley during camp, even suggesting the team plans to use him more in the passing game. Gurley has struggled since the four-game explosion which opened his career, but there are at least signs he will turn it around this year.

Coach Sean McVay raved about Todd Gurley as a pass catcher and expressed a desire to get him more opportunities there. Gurley has been lining up out wide at times and hauling in sideline catches over defensive backs, something the old Jeff Fisher regime never could have imagined doing with the young back. With Lance Dunbar (knee) out, Gurley has been getting more reps to showcase his hands, and McVay admitted "we're continuing to find out" Gurley can actually be an asset as a receiver. Gurley was a mega fantasy bust last season but has an immensely more imaginative coaching staff around him in 2017 and remains the focal point of the offense. He has big bounce-back appeal if the line plays better and McVay gets him in position to catch 50-plus balls.

Todd Gurley said he's been "loving" the team's new offense under first-year head coach Sean McVay. After a year of slamming into brick walls with Jeff Fisher at the control panel, Gurley feels a new sense of purpose in McVay's scheme, which puts a heavy emphasis on "situational" preparation. McVay kept Gurley busy during OTAs, moving him all over the formation. Gurley has also been impressed by Jared Goff's development, noting his "great" play during OTAs and minicamp. The Rams still have a long way to go to return to relevancy, but they'll get there much faster if McVay can get the most out of Goff and Gurley.

Rams LG Rodger Saffold said the offensive line and Todd Gurley were more on the same page at OTAs and minicamp. RT Jamon Brown said after the season that Gurley and the line "have to get back on the same page." ESPN's K.C. Joyner's tape review saw Gurley leave way too many yards on the field, even when he did get good blocking up front. Saffold suggested Gurley was diagnosing the play at different speeds than the offensive line, sometimes being too quick into his runs. Under new coach Sean McVay, they're trying to fix those problems.

Rams OC Matt LaFleur said his goal is to "marry" the running and passing games this season. The best way to accomplish this would be to feed Todd Gurley targets and keep him on the field in passing situations, like the Cardinals do with David Johnson, the Steelers with Le'Veon Bell, and the Chargers with Melvin Gordon. "We want to have a strong marriage with our running game and our passing game so that a defense can't just tee off on a guy," said LaFleur. "The idea is to have a balanced attack and keep a defense guessing." Defenses can "tee off" on Gurley when he's used primarily on early downs, which telegraphs to opponents that run plays are coming. Gurley was an outstanding receiver at Georgia and has dropped just 3-of-84 career targets in the pros.
