Is Todd Gurley’s knee something you need to fear for Fantasy Football?

Athletic reporter Jay Glazer feels Todd Gurley’s knee is something you need to worry about if you are a Fantasy Owner drafter!

Jay Glazer of The Athletic was asked in his most recent mailbag if the talk about Rams running back Todd Gurley having arthritis in his knee has been “overblown.” He said it is not:

“Nope, it’s not overblown. I think the biggest test will be what happens early in the season. If he runs and it doesn’t blow up and the Rams are able to use him as a workhorse, then a lot of those concerns will go away. If not, they’re going to have to get a little creative. They would be wise to be prepared because the knee has gone through a lot from college to now, so they’ve got to brace for it swelling up again.”

Many fantasy football owners have been talking Todd Gurley as a top 5 pick but should this hurt him a bit? At this point you may want to look at players like Alvin Kamara Over Gurley at this point, just to play it safe. Jay Glazer is not wrong very often.
