That might be the only 'absolute' statement applied to Todd Gurley this off-season and it's a good sign. What isn't known is, well, anything else. As pointed out in the linked article, the question isn't whether or not Gurley was injured late in the seasin but what, instead, the exact nature and severity of whatever the injury was. In a low scoring Super Bowl game, Gurley barely saw the field during the Rams' loss fueling varied guesses as to what the actual injury was or could be. Common belief currently centers on the dreaded "arthritis", destroyer of careers, especially in running backs.
There has been no certain confirmation of arthritis but dynasty owners aren't taking any chances, sending his ADP (14) to recent lows and dropping his DLF ranking to RB8. This leaves Gurley clearly out of the first round and, potentially, a major high-ceiling value target for coaches willing to accept risk. The Rams retained backup runner Malcolm Brown and selected rookie Darrell Henderson in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, both moves suggesting greater play-making depth was needed. Despite whatever Gurley may be suffering from, he still managed to amass 1,251 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns along with 59 receptions and another four touchdowns in 2018. But over his last four regular season games, he only eclipsed 12 carries once and his production tailed-off badly during his final two games. In the Super Bowl, he only saw 11 total touches for a total of 34 total yards. Todd Gurley remains an extremely intriguing early second round selection in new startup drafts but now carries a prominent caveat emptor designation.
