Five months ago, I wrote an article about Todd Gurley’s abysmal 2016. You can read the entire piece itself to hear everything I had to say (there was a lot… and you might want to read the introductory stage of the series it was a segment of to understand my numerical references). I’ll sum it up quickly: The Rams offensive line was atrocious, and Gurley offered quite little when provided his few opportunities.
I predicted Gurley’s heinous 3.2 yards-per-carry mark to improve in 2017, but not by too much:
“There are positive and negative ways to look at the future. On the bright side, there’s loads of room to improve if solely through regression to the mean, let alone through on-paper improvement to the offensive line. The bleaker outlook is that blocking will still probably be subpar, meaning the onus falls on Gurley to provide effective rushing production. Given his previous campaign, I’m not as optimistic about this happening as most are.”
