Week 9 Running Backs – Rankings Analysis
’ll give the Rams this, they’re finally using Todd Gurley appropriately in the passing game instead of allowing Benny Cunningham to significantly eat into the 22-year-old stud’s usage.
Unfortunately, Gurley (#12 vs. #8 consensus) is still stuck on a Rams offense that is struggling to establish an identity that now gets to square up with a reinvigorated Panthers front seven. David Johnson needed 84 yards on seven catches last week to make any sort of value against them. No bueno.
Another RB to be bearish on is Latavius Murray (#21 vs. #15 consensus), as he showed last week just how things can go when this committee faces a strong run defense. Tampa Bay’s overall numbers were down thanks to injuries, but at full strength they made life difficult for Oakland on the ground.Back to top
