You mean the phantom thigh bruise they reported because his arthritic knee was acting up? Yeah, sure...he's good to go.

I mean I feel like my point of view is blurred because of have Gurley, but at this point they are in danger of missing the playoffs. They need to unleash Gurley for the second half, they don’t have the luxury of resting him for the playoffs. It’s now or never for a team that just went all in on Ramsey. I think we see shades of 2018 Gurley the next few weeks. 

He’s averaging 3.85 yards/carry.  That means he needs 26 carries just to get 100 yards...

Rams next 3 games are Steelers, Bears, Ravens.   Currently 5-3 and on the Fringe of making the wild card.  It would be a miracle if they catch Sea and SF.  So it will be interesting if they go 1-2 in the next 3 weeks.  

1-2?

Steelers are ridiculously one dimentional and the Bears suck. 2-1 is a lot more likely than 1-2.

Sure, that is entirely possible.  I mean Steelers are 4-4, and have been trotting out their 2nd and 3rd string QB, and 2nd, 3rd, and 4th String RB.  Not many people would be shocked if the 4-4 Steelers upset the mighty 5-3 Rams.

The Steelers have some exciting young defensive pieces..Their offense sucks, Connor is a solid RB and Juju is a good WR thats it. I would be pretty shocked if they upset the Rams. They beat FitzMagic and Brian Hoyer the last two games in close games , not to mention Brian Hoyer threw 3 TDs and almost 200 yards with garbage WR's in a few quarters. I don't see the Rams going any worse than 2-1 in this 3 game stretch.. As far as Gurley's touches thats anyones guess at this point.

They beat Brian Hoyer by 2 points and the Dolphins kept it close for 3 quarters against them the week prior. I'd say beating the Rams would be a surprise. They beat one team with a winning record and that team was led by Brian Hoyer.

As a Steelers fan I would say I would be very surprised if we won. Just doubt we can keep up on offense. That being said, I think the defense matches up extremely well. Rams are struggling to run the ball and pass protect. Should be a sack fest.

agreed. Pittsburgh defense is quite good, and the Rams o-line and Jared Goff both stink

Steelers defense is enough to make the game close.  Rams offense runs through Kupp. difficult to bank on that every week in my opinion.  No one else has stepped up, except maybe Everett

and not that kupp is going to be stopped, but Fitzpatrick should be lined up on him, and that's no easy match up.

 

At least, I think. He's the slot corner, right?

They move him around.  I think he plays in the slot too, yes.

He is the free safety but since he joined the team we have been much better against slot WR’s. Steelers haven’t given up 100 yard WR yet.

So to circle back on topic, is anyone confident in starting Gurley ROS? he has been pretty dependent on TDs so far.

I don't think you can sit him at all. He's not an RB1, but he's definitely can put up RB1 #'s here and there just because of that offense. 

 

They don't coach for fantasy players...so a RBBC is most probable. He's CLEARLY not the back he used to be, and their Oline is troubling lately...but you still have to have him in your line up I would this flex at worst.
