This has been rumored for some time but it appears as though the fire beneath the smoke is intensifying. It remains to be seen who would, or could, step up to take on Gurley's massive contract but a trade out of Los Angeles would be welcomed by all. It is believed the Rams may simply cut the back if no trade can be finalized. Latest reports are that Tampa Bay may be the front runner. He'll turn 26 in August and is coming off a season which saw Gurley produce 14 total touchdowns, down from 2018's 21 and his ypc. average dropped from 4.9 to 3.8. Receptions also dropped from 59 to 31. Speculation remains that Gurley's workload was managed early in the year to provide for a late season push due to an arthritic component in his knees, but there's has been no confirmation of either and the Rams faded badly as 2019 came to a close.
Either way, a trade out of L.A. is best for dynasty owners toward determining if he can return to a true bell-cow, fantasy-leading back, once again. Gurley is DLF's RB15 and represents an intriguing risk-reward scenario with both ceiling and floor potential. While a new starting situation will likely raise his value, it will come with an attached level of risk which will keep his dynasty value lower than those with better prospects above him.
