Since taking over as the Rams' starting running back in Week 4, Todd Gurley is the No. 1 running back in points per game in standard-scoring leagues, racking up 20.2 points in an average contest. Week 8, however, was the first time he was the top-scoring running back in a single week, after checking in at ninth in Weeks 4 and 5, and second in Week 7 (the Rams had a bye Week 6). Gurley’s Week 9 matchup with the Vikings isn’t necessarily a great one, but that won't stop the rookie, who is the best fantasy running back left standing after injuries to Le’Veon Bell and Jamaal Charles.
Who will star alongside Gurley in Week 9, and who will falter in a week with six teams on bye? Find out in our Week 9 rankings.
